I just realized I could do homemade bath salts for each guest and other little diy things. Maybe bath bombs and stuff.
Sakuranbo: Japanese cherry encased in flavored gelatin. Seasonal treat typically served with tea. “ヽ(´▽｀)ノ”✿
that looks fucking delicious
I don’t like the idea of the guests throwing confetti or rice, so I’d really like it if I could find petals instead. I’d prefer white wisteria or cherry blossoms, but sakura only bloom for a month or two depending on the climate. Plum blossoms would work too, but I’d be in the same boat as with cherry blossoms.
It’s a dream come true for anyone who has ever spent an evening at the Renaissance Faire wishing that they could wear the pretty dresses AND the awesome armor. We utterly love this fashion spread from designer Pinkabsinthe.
Apparently, there’s a new trend where guests would rather give the couple money than a gift. For that reason, I’ve set up a Dwolla account for those who’d prefer to give monetary gifts and I’ll be setting up an amazon registry. I’d go with Etsy, but I’ll save that til the eventual baby shower(cause etsy has great baby stuffs.)

Create these luminaries out of balloons and wax instead of buying vases you’ll never use again!
You will need:
high melt paraffin wax
a cookie sheet
- Fill balloon with tepid water.
- Melt wax in the double boiler to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Slowly dip balloon into the wax, hold it for a few seconds.
- Withdraw the balloon, wait a minute or two, and then repeat step 3 a few more times.
- While the waxy balloon is still warm, set it on the cookie sheet to flatten the bottom. Repeat step 3 a few more times to get the wax to about a thickness of 1/4” to 1/2” thick.
- Set the balloon on the cookie sheet and let it cool.
- When the wax is cooled completely, pop the balloon, holding it over a sink and facing it away from you. (so you don’t get burned in case of splash)
- To even off the top, heat the cookie sheet slightly on the stove top and invert the luminary, melting the top edges a bit.
- Pop in a tea light, and you’re done!
How awesome is that??? Brides- will you be creating these for your wedding???
