Confetti Save-The-Date

by Oh Happy Day

Tutorial - These little tubes shoot a little burst of confetti when you twist them. The problem is they are usually ugly and the confetti inside them is usually poor quality (like five little sad strands.) So what we did here is strip the label, disassemble the spring mechanism. Then put it back together with our own confetti plus an invitation inside. Then the recipient twists the canister for an exciting little moment to get their invitations. Fun right?

We were going to do these as save-the-dates but they would work great as party invitations for any event.

Jam Jar Lantern Tutorial

via Craftzine

Step by Step Tutorial - Parties, weddings, barbecues, and quality outdoor time all call for some sweet outdoor lighting when the sun goes down. It's a perfect time to flashback to the Jam Jar Lanterns tutorial from the pages of CRAFT Volume 10, written by our own wildly talented Brookelynn Morris.
She came up with this charming design, and the rig that makes making a number of them a breeze. The lanterns look so lovely strung up on a chain and cast a warm, soft hue. Check out the tutorial here.
Set your party mood with sublime lighting.
Lighting makes an event, and candles transform the mundane into the extraordinary. These glass jar lanterns are beautiful hanging from a tree, or from chain across a deck. Pick any jar you like, then bend a snug-fitting cage of wire on a easy custom-made jig. The technique makes it easy to mass-produce a large number of lanterns in a short time.

Orchid Boutonniere To Make

By Nina Callaway at About.com Guide
 
Making your own boutonniere is an easy DIY wedding task that can save you money without a lot of time or difficulty. Houston wedding planner and floral designer Dennis Kutach will take you step-by-step through an easy way to make your own boutonniere.

Although there are several steps, each of them is very quick and easy. A beginner can make this boutonniere in less than 5 minutes. You'll need to buy some floral supplies, but especially if you are making bouquets that will also need those supplies, you can easily cut your floral bill in half.

If you have a refrigerator with no fresh produce in it (the produce gives off an enzyme that wilts flowers), you can assemble the boutonniere up to two days before the wedding. Otherwise, make it the day before the wedding, and store it in a cool place.
