We're almost there.

Today I bring you a little preview of what I've been working on for the wedding, with the help of some wonderful friends. I won't lie: we found this gorgeous wedding and decided to steal a lot of ideas, including the yellow and gray color palette. I love it.

We are sewing napkins for all (estimated) 175 of our guests. That's right, sewing them. With a sewing machine. I'M actually learning to sew! It's so much fun, who knew? The fabric is Amy Butler. She has such amazing prints.

This is a sample poof - one of about 150 we have to make to hang from the ceiling with huge round lanterns, in what my friend Nat calls "a makeshift chandelier". Nat, by the way, is a creative genius and is my unofficial wedding planner. She was the one that said, "Yes we CAN make cloth napkins for everyone!", even though I was terrified of the idea. But with the help of Nat, Jamie, Debby, Emily, Winter and Jess, we're almost there. This whole wedding thing is coming along quite nicely, really. I can't wait.


  1. Speaking of those cloth napkins. . . I'm still in for ironing when the time comes! We can have an ironing party or I'll take a stack home. I like to iron; it's weird, I know. ; )

  2. Winter, that's very nice of you to offer, but the napkins are almost finished. Don't worry - I'll have lots of jobs for you on June 4. :)
