wedding wednesday's

268 days to go..

I mentioned a few posts back about how big of an auction junkie I am. Well, a few weeks ago I purchased "all that's left on the table".. which consisted of several picture frames, all brand spankin' new. I ended up with 8 gold colored wallet sized frames, two picture framed book ends, three hanging or standing magnetic frames, and several others. My price? $2.00 for it all.

I spray painted the 8 gold plated frames chocolate in color. More than likely I will end up either placing various photos of Cliff and I in them, or use them as table numbers. The same night [at the auction], I purchased an assortment of easels. I also spray painted each of them chocolate. Not sure if I will definitely use them to go along with the frames, or use them elsewhere. 


I believe it was the same night again... I purchased these two woven wooden baskets.

I'm going to have two young girls carry these and pass out our programs for the ceremony.
With these, I also bought 4 (or 5, I can't remember) brand new shepherd hooks.
For both baskets + 4 (or 5) shepherd hooks, I paid $15.00.

Last Wednesday after clinicals, Brooke and I ventured over to Walker's Pharmacy in town. I found this awesome cake stand on the clearance rack!

It had been marked down from $42.95 to $10.74!

And the really cool thing about it... you can flip it over and use it for chips/dip, fruit/dip, bread/cheese, etc.

I plan on threading a ribbon around it to look something like these:

Groom's Cake?

I have been contemplating continuously for weeks now over Cliff's cake. I just can't come up with anything "special" so to say. I want it to be original, but also something that represents who he is and what he enjoys.

This is him in a nutshell:
  • loves anything hunting [#1 fav. thing- especially deer!]
  • enjoys football [former local high school/UGA/Colts]
  • enjoys running heavy equipment [tractors]
  • has 20 four-legged friends that go hunting with him [walkers/beagles/pointers]
  • drives an old Chevy hunting, owns a 09 Tacoma for daily use, and wants a Ford F150.
    Here are a few I've come across thus far that would go along with our woodsy theme and fit perfectly into Cliff's personality.
    Any ideas?
    Also, I stated in yesterday's post that I would be elaborating on the save-the-date postcards that I ordered from VistaPrint. I've decided not to show any pictures simply due to the fact that several hometown friends and family keep up with our blog and I want them to be a surprise. However, do know that you are fully capable of designing your card in various programs and then uploading it to VistaPrint! You don't have to choose from their pre-made layouts! I used Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0 for ours and they turned out great!

    Hope y'all have a great Wednesday!
