Happy Hump Day! We’re almost through the week y’all! Yayyy!
I’m headin’ to good ole Oklahoma this weekend for a cousin’s wedding. She’s actually going to be using a bunch of my wedding decor too. I’m so happy to be able to help out & share some of my mountains of good wedding junk with her! I know it’s going to be fabulous.
Here’s another look back to that special day & our eclectic guestbook table.
It all started with this table my Dad picked up at a garage sale back when I was in high school. I painted it a rich burgundy-brown shade & kept it in my bedroom until right before the wedding. I gave it a fresh coat of creamy white & wiped a dark stain into all the deep crevices. It was the perfect size for our sign in table & now it sits proudly in our closet holding all my jewelry.
There are so many special elements in this junky tabletop collection of mine. The stars are an old typewriter that I spray painted gold & a rusty mailbox from Michael’s parent’s house. I actually made an adorable printable that was supposed to sit in the typewriter, but it was my wedding day & a few tiny things may have slipped my mind!
We used small squares of card stock, square envelopes, & navy sharpies to give guests the opportunity to write us tiny love notes & place in the mailbox. When Michael & I first met, he was at home in Houston & I was at college in Dallas. So he sent me several letters & care packages. He probably won me over with those alone!
I set up my favorite of our engagement photos in a pretty frame next to a stack of vintage sewing books. I also used cigar boxes, crochet lace doilies, wooden spools & navy shotgun shells to fill the table. This vintage date thing (no clue what it’s called?) is probably my favorite piece on the whole table. I found it in some old boxes long ago in my Nana’s attic. I knew it’d be a perfect touch to our guest table.
Right beside that table I set up a gold mirror with the nights festivities & a sign announcing our official Instagram hashtag. I sat a couple of vintage cameras beside it & a bowl of fresh flowers.
A step further away our arrow sign was stuck in the ground, showing guests where to go.
For this sign I used chalkboard arrows I found at Pick Your Plum. I cut out gold vinyl for the letters in the same font as our stationary then hot glued the arrows onto a 1″x 2″ board that I spray painted gold.
I’m still in love with every single detail of our wedding. I don’t think I’ll ever be over it & I wouldn’t have it any other way!
