2009 :)

I hope all of you have had a great start to the new year! This is sure to be an exciting year for D and I with the wedding coming up, D's DAT exam and dental school applications, and Grad school starting up for me. 

Over the next week I need to crank out a few sewing projects I've been enlisted for and then continue on with the craziness of wedding planning! Oh and I should probably try and squeeze in work as well!

I didn't make any resolutions this year but I do want to make some changes in my life. I want to start working out more regularly, stop stressing out about everything, spend more time with the people who are close to me and and step out of my comfort zone more. 

I am starting back with my masters swim team next week and I also want to start doing a yoga class in the mornings. 

Here are a few images I have collected over the past few weeks. 

I love these glass bottles of juices/ drinks even more because of the coordinating tags.
The menu card on the table actually reminded me a lot of our save the dates and our plan for invitations. I also love the striped table cloth and using the custom wine bottle label as your table number.
We are using green button mums as accents in almost all of the flowers for our wedding. I love how they look all grouped together here. I would take away all of the little bows but keep the large bow. This would look great on the entry door to a church or reception.
This photo is from the most recent edition of Martha Stewart Weddings. It is the wedding of a girl who works at Purl Soho which is my favorite online fabric stop (as well as daily blog read). I can't wait to be back in N.Y. so I can check out the shop! She made fabric napkins for all of the guests in coordinating fabrics to the wedding. Each table features a different fabric in orange or green. This has been added to my to-do list :) I am planning on using a variety of navy and white prints to coordinate with the white linens and navy runners on the tables. The green and white flowers will provide a nice "pop" of color.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I think using personalized wine labels as table numbers is such a cute idea. I went to a wedding last summer and the bride used bottles of wine like this and I was floored.

She arranged a bottle of white, red, and non-alky cider in the center of each table and tied a ribbon around them to make an eye-catching (and yummy!) centerpiece.

I asked her where she got her wine labels and she told me she found them at BottleYourBrand.com I liked them so much I'm using custom wine labels in my summer 09 wedding!

I love the flower thing with the brown bow. Great color combo!
