Smile #250 – Say Yes to DIY Party

Let me preface this post by stating I love DIYs.  I can spend hours transforming an ordinary piece of printer paper into a beautiful swan or finding new purpose for regular household items.  This creative outlet breaks up the monotony of ‘adulting’ life.  Plus the sense of accomplishment I feel when the final product completes is priceless.

Over the course of wedding planning, I have pinned too many ideas to incorporate in our wedding.  Little by little, my DIY project list grew and grew.  There are just so many unique ideas out there and one wedding is not enough to have it all!  Jk Jk!

Why keep the fun to myself when I can get all the I Do Crew to join in!  Calling all the ladies!

The ladies gathered around on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.  The house was divided into different work stations based on the craft medium – paper, paint and spray paint.  Lil Sis spent most of the day out at the spray paint station.  EC focused her time at the paint station.  JB joined later at the paper table.  I am basically the busboy, running in and out getting all the supplies for everyone.  I was getting my steps in for the day.

Thanks to these ladies, my giant list of DIYs crossed off one by one.  They are the greatest helpers!

Capture

To avoid giving away all the surprises, no finished product photos will be posted until after the wedding.  But everything turned out perfectly.  It is so exciting to see my vision slowly comes to life!

To add on to the fun, EC surprised us with a touch of her own.  She bought a Pig Cake to the party.  It was decorate with the Chinese characters meaning goodbye single life.   Only my best friend could ever think of this.  Our pig feud will never ends!
