Burlap Wedding Banners

Burlap wedding banners - these are just a few that I found today at Etsy. Not only are these banners affordable, $24 for "Just Hitched," which measures approximately sixteen inches and 28 inches (top and bottom) with an additional six inches of ribbon on each. Burlap is a coarsely woven cloth made of fibers of jute, flax, or hemp. Once thought to be used only for mundane jobs like storing potatoes, turnips, onions and coffee beans - burlap is now celebrated in pillows, placemats, table runners, curtains, ring bearer pillows and wedding favor bags. Stitched and stenciled, these sweet and simple burlap banners are perfect for a fall wedding and outdoor reception.

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 dough overnight in the refrigerator, roll it out 1/4 inch thick and cut your snowflake cookie shapes. Or bake them in advance, freeze on a baking sheet until they are solid. Place them in Ziploc bags and put them in the freezer up to three months for best results.

Custom Chalkboard Wedding Signs

CJ Hughes is a talented chalk artist and creator of this custom chalkboard wedding sign with an amazingly charming vintage design. This is (was) his best selling sign, hand rendered on an 18 x 24 inch board, suitable for hanging or display on an easel. Each one of his Victorian style signs is completed in chalk and then painted over with acrylic paint to make it a lasting wedding keepsake. Your names and wedding date will be placed in similar locations as shown in this lovely work of art. Priced at less than $175, this sign would be a perfect addition to your vintage style wedding, but you need to put in your request soon. Unfortunately, as I update this post in 2017, this sign is not available, but many other artists at Etsy offer custom chalkboard wedding signs in the range of $50 to $100.
