So, I need some help with some decor ideas! I’m not sure if this is going to end up being “childish” or “stupid” or what have you. The place where we’re having the reception at only has long rectangle tables (and I’m going to have to cover them myself with linens/cloths). There is also a backyard where we will most likely have our ceremony and have access to throughout the reception as well, FYI. =)
But anyway, our colors are peach, cream/ivory, and this blue/gray accent color. (I’m not sure what to call this color exactly). Most of the wedding is going to be DIY since we’re one a REALLY tight budget. Now for some odd reason, I’m being really drawn to these pictures I found and I keep wondering how well this would work. We don’t really have a theme, just colors.
If we do go with this string thing, if we do the balls we can do varies size/colors going down the length of the table. I could possibly make the “flowers” on top out of tissue paper? Maybe? And the sign can be used outside and inside as well. (I’m currently working on this now, cause regardless if we use it for the wedding or not, I want it lol =p ).
But I just don’t know what else I can do with this. Or if there any other ideas? HELP! lol

Also, keep in mind that I’m a carpenter in theater and have access to some scrap wood and I’m able to make some pretty fancy things =p. Also, as of right now (depending how long) I currently have a second job at Michaels so I get the fancy discount =p

I think the string balls are lovely. Some bees have reported difficulty making these. It seems they are affected by humidity. You also have to have lots of room to transport them so they don’t get crushed.
Ms Ferris Wheel blogged about making string balls.
We Are Ballers… String Ballers
As she mentioned, there are lots of tutorials online.
Here’s an idea for using them to make a chandelier.

I have seen people making flowers from all kinds of materials in tutorials. I really like the string balls. I plan on making my own pomander flower balls. I plan on using water beads to float flowers. Um, obviously, I cannot remember the items that I don’t plan on using. LOL. Pinterest and YouTube and reading all the DIY projests on here have been my best inspration to draw ideas from.

@Chelle-Lee: Yeah, I’ve been running across all types of DIY flowers recently too. Some of them turn out great. I’m sure I would have to do a lot of test pieces before I’m able to get them looking somewhat great lol.
@jenilynevette: That is really pretty! Ah, so many ideas!!! lol
