Okay everybody, so this DIY is actually a product of my imagination. I got the inspiration when I saw a jewelry mold made out of hot glue. When hot glue hardens it becomes almost like a plastic material. I wanted to create something out of this material because it has so many possibilities and I think that’s awesome. Anyway, these place cards utilize hot glue and glitter and I think they turned out pretty cute. The ones I made are winter themed and sparkly, but I’m sure you DIY divas can think of all kinds of different designs. The way to think about this DIY is like painting with fabric paint or paint pens. If you can do those types of painting, you can do this. So without further ado, let’s get to gluing! … read more
I always love seeing what people come up with for their placecards. I think they can be so adorable. The first wedding Mr. Sea Monkey and I ever attended as a couple was also a beach wedding. They had sand dollars with our names and table numbers on them and jewels in the middle to tell what menu item we chose for our entree.
I thought they were so cool looking, but that marked sand dollars off our list. I like to be inspired, but I don’t like to take ideas from people. That way, our wedding is distinguishable from our friends’.

At first, I wanted to have sea urchins. I think they are the coolest looking things, but they didn’t have them in our colors. I definitely had never seen them used as placecards.
I honestly feel like nearly any wedding, especially any outdoor event, could add some moss to the decor and it would fit right in.
There is just something about moss that I’m drawn to. It looks natural and peaceful, but can also be dressed up in a wonderful way. These moss covered table numbers are a great way to incorporate a little green to your table scape, and can be customized to suit your needs. … read more
Creating beautiful vintage framed table numbers is both easy and cheap. You don’t need much time, money, or exceptional skill to swing these eye-catching centerpieces.
One of the best things about a wedding is that it brings so many different types of people together. A wedding is a perfect environment for your guests to meet new people – after all, all of the guests either know the bride or the groom (or their date does). College friends mingle with aunts and uncles at weddings and colleagues mingle with childhood buddies. But it isn’t always best to just throw all of your guests together haphazardly, especially not during the meal. Most people will prefer to dine with those they know and that’s why reception tables with designated table numbers and corresponding table assignments exist! … read more

It’s always fun to incorporate hobbies and interests into your wedding. These cork place card holders are a great option for wine lovers and vineyard weddings. And there are several ways to use them!
In order to make these holders, you’ll need lots of corks, so start collecting now! I only used real corks—not the synthetic plastic ones. Corks from red, white, and sparkling wine will all work just fine, although red wine will leave a little colored residue on one side of your cork. Personally, I think the red wine has a cool look, but it’s something to consider. You’ll also want to be extra gentle when removing your corks so that you don’t damage the top edges too much.
