Party Decor

The party my mom and I threw for my brother and sister-in-law to celebrate their marriage was a huge success!  Here is a photo of the happy couple at the party!  
Ward and Lisa - I love you guys! 
My mom has worked at The University of Akron for over 23 years now. When we were discussing where to have the party she had the stellar idea to have the party at the new football stadium on the Club Level!  

Here is the view of the stadium.  Isn't it magnificent?! 

I made the place cards by cutting 12x12 paper to the desired size and using my Martha Stewart Score board to fold them.  Then I stamped the boarder stamp using various inks in my ColorBox Paintbox (Pastel).  Then I stamped the cute little flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black.  The flower stamp is from Hampton Art's "We make a Great Pair" set.   To finish them I hand wrote the guests' names on the outside and the table numbers on the inside.   

That brings me to the table numbers.  My mom found a bunch of little frames in her basement that she purchased from Marc's a while ago and she gave them to me.  I didn't know what I would ever do with them... but when I was contemplating the need for table numbers at the party, I found the perfect use for them.
 Here is a sample of what the frames looked like before.  

I thought they would look awesome painted black and with the table numbers inside them.

I cut out a bunch of numbers in different colors and fonts with SCAL and the Cricut.  I also cut out some fun papers to fit inside the various sizes of frames and started assembling.  I love how they turned out!  It was a great way to use these little frames.  These are some of the finished products:

 Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Don't forget - comments are always welcome and appreciated!  I'll be back in tomorrow with more fun stuff from this party!! :o) 



I dont have a whole lot to say about this post, but I feel the responsibility to comment.
