A couple months ago I sent Steph Smith this photo of a crayon drawing:
And asked if she was up for a weird photoshoot. THANK GOODNESS she said yes!
Thanks also to:
The Cake Occasion – Cake and cookies
Fleurish – Flowers and emotional support
Pretty Old Stuff – Drinks set up and cake set up (with a bonus gold bar cart borrowed from Eventures/Randal Events)
The Reserve at Osage House – venue
I couldn’t have pulled this off without a ton of help from my down the street neighbors and husband. The paper mache arch was sculpted, painted, and assembled by the four of us over multiple months. Let me tell you that making 9 HUGE pieces of paper mache art was no joke. It also cost only about $20 in supplies. It doesn’t matter what kind of budget you have, if you’ve got the time and inclination, there’s always a way to fancy-up your wedding or party decorations! I’ll try and do a separate post with some how-tos and the biggest lessons I learned if this arch is speaking to you and you must know how to create your own.
