Burlap Wedding Banners

Burlap wedding banners - make mine "Just Hitched," which measures approximately 25 inches long and is handcrafted with burlap and die cut paper letters on 4 x 4 inch chipboard.  Outdoor wedding receptions and get-togethers are made even more rustic with the addition of rich, textured burlap.  What is burlap?  A sturdy and coarsely woven cloth made of fibers of jute, flax, or hemp.  Once thought to be used only for mundane jobs like storing potatoes, turnips and onions, burlap is now celebrated in pillows, placemats, table runners, curtains, ring bearer pillows and favor bags.  Stitched and stenciled, these amazing outdoor burlap wedding reception banners are sweet and stylish!


Snowflake Wedding Cupcakes

Snowflake wedding cupcakes - what a fun and festive winter wedding idea! Many of these are just ordinary frosted cupcakes (in red, white or green) with a star or snowflake sugar cookie nestled on top. And yet they look professionally made. Why not give these a try? Sugar cookie dough can be frozen for up to three months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator, roll out the dough and cut your snowflake shapes. Or bake your cookies in advance, freeze on a baking sheet until they are solid. Place them in Ziploc bags and freeze, up to three months for best results.
