This wire frame card holder is simple and rustic. Not only can it make an impact on your wedding day by displaying your seating assignments, but then also be used in your home to hold cards and photos once your big day is over.
A Frame Without Glass And A Back
Mini Clothes Pins
Wire Cutters or Scissors
Depending on the gauge chicken wire you use it may take a bit of muscle to cut through it, otherwise this is an easy A in my book. I was even able to use scissors to get though my chickenwire.
Measure how much wire you will need to cover the back of your frame. If you need to use your cutters to trim the remnant wire so the edges are flush or just shorter than your frame. Use your staple gun to attach the wire to the back of your frame.
Finally hang your escort cards by using the mini clothes pins. How cute is that?! I am using my frame to display some invitations.
*If you are having a difficult time finding a frame you would like check your local thrift shops or junk yards for old frames or windows! I found my frame at Hobby Lobby for under $15.00.

This twist on traditional lemonade is a fun way to cool down on warm days. I was surprised at how unique and refreshing this drink truly was. Below you will find the step-by-step instructions on how to make lavender lemonade.
1 Tablespoon Of Dried Lavender Flowers
1 Cup of Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Fresh Lemon Juice
Aardvark Eco-Flex Straws
Super simple and delicious! If you remember, I used these fun straws in our last cocktail post. Thanks to the Aardvark company for sending us some free samples so I could dress up my glass of lavender lemonade!
Combine your sugar, dried lavender flowers, and two cups of boiling water in a bowl.
Stir until the sugar dissolves and let the lavender steep for 20 minutes. You can allow it to steep longer if you would like a stronger flavor, but too long can make your lemonade taste like soap!
Use a strainer to remove the lavender flowers from your water mixture.
Add in your lavender syrup, lemon juice, two cups of cold water, and stir. Pour over ice and enjoy!
*You can also use fresh lavender leaves and flower to make this lemonade, however you will need a larger quantity because the dried flowers are much too potent.

With spring hopefully right around the corner, I wanted to share a few ways to incorporate color into your centerpieces. Don’t assume that flowers are the only way to add a pop of color into your decor. You can browse below to see unique ways to have your centerpieces pop amongst a bouquet of white flowers.
Why not use food coloring to add a splash of color to your water in your floral arrangements?! This is a simple yet bold way to add a pop to your event space.
Explore your local produce section to find bright colors to enhance your tablescape. I chose lemons to fill these tall vases however limes, oranges, or apples would be beautiful as well.
Fresh fruit is not the only think you can find in the grocery store to make a beautiful centerpiece. Try some dried beans or lentils for color and texture. I used two bags of dried split peas.
Inspiration for centerpieces can be found all around you just need to look for them.
