When it came to our wedding favors I had so many ideas and I really wanted to do sandalwood fans but wasn't sure how to incorporate them! Of course living in Southern California you would expect the date of July 9th to be steaming hot...well that did not quite happen! Wedding day weather by the beach was overcast and cool! Thank goodness I thought to display them as a decoration and didn't just hand out sandalwood fans on a cool overcast day! I bought each box with a 40% off coupon at Micheals and then printed a monogrammed "thank you for attending the wedding of Chelsey and Tucker" tag, tied a ribbon and there they were!

|Menu's placed for each guest|

To plan a DIY wedding it takes lots of time and research. I knew that I wanted all of my paper products to match; same font, same colors, same textures etc. When I realized how expensive it would be to have matching invitations, menus, seating cards and favors I heard another DIY project a knockin'. So I purchased black and ivory cardstock, made a "S" monogram and chose the font! I printed the menu on ivory cardstock, backed it on black cardstock, poked a couple of holes and tied a ribbon. When I met with out caterer to finalize our menu I made sure to jot down some notes so I knew exactly what we were serving! People think making menu's is a waste of time, especially if your doing a buffet...BUT they are a cute touch and when people are waiting in the buffet line they already know what they will be choosing for dinner!

On my days off I love nothing more than to wake up, brew some cinnamon coffee, walk out my door and see my garden! (I think I have turned into my mother...which is not a bad thing by any means) I love to watch the progress of blooming flowers, growing bulbs and tasty vegetables!
