Autumn Wedding Centerpieces

Autumn wedding centerpieces - not that complicated if you have pinecones here, there and everywhere like I do.  About a million of those pesky guys are in my front yard, back yard, clogging up my rain gutters, covering my driveway, wedged into my new fall mums and waiting to give me a fresh bruise on top of the noggin.  Great for a DIY autumn centerpiece, notwithstanding the occasional sprained ankle when you clip one with your right foot and come down hard on your left.  Stack ‘em, shellac ‘em, and group them with candles and leaves. Bring Nature to the table for FREE. Just watch your step.

Fortune Telling Favors

Am I going to marry that black haired, blue-eyed Billy Simpson? There would be no asking him directly. Sneaky little six grade girls like us were forced to conjure up the dark spirits and divine knowledge of our prized fortune telling “cootie catchers.” Now you can amuse your guests with similar fortune telling wedding favors with your own personalized questions and answers, such as “Where did he propose?” That’s easy.  Pint sized Billy finally popped the question under the monkey bars with a silver painted plastic diamond ring.
