New DIY Violin Cut Out with Strings and a Bow for a Party Centerpiece Video is Up

Posted by abncparties on August 17, 2009

Our new video demonstrates how to put together a DIY violin cut out for a music theme party centerpiece.  The centerpiece includes strings and a bow. The  strings are made from white yarn, heavy black card stock and clear push pins.  We start with a plain white polystyrene violin cut out, seal it and paint it.  Judy paints F holes, adds a tail piece, fine tuners as well as a bow with fishing string hair.

The violin and bow are added to a budget “Just Add Sand” centerpiece base and accented with two pieces of onion grass.  Balloons, a table name and table place cards together make an economical violin theme centerpiece for a Bat Mitzvah, Bar Mitzvah, wedding, special event or party!

10 Great Tips to Get Gorgeous Wedding Flowers

Posted by abncparties on July 3, 2009

Jacquie Cattanach recently wrote an interesting article on saving on your Wedding. This was one of her tips on Life Style.

“Most high schools and colleges have horticulture classes that specialize in caring for and arranging flowers and plants. For a small fee, you could hire these aspiring florists who would be thrilled to work on your arrangements. The teachers of such a course will act as your safety net and, as an added bonus to you, will have extensive experience and oversee your project.”

DIY wedding is a creative, cash-conscious alternative

Posted by abncparties on June 8, 2009

Jackie Burrell (Contra Costa Times) wrote an interesting story as reported by San Luis Obispo.com The Tribune.

These tips caught my eye

“- Do as much as you can yourself, but don’t do it solo. Host a bridesmaids and mothers’ party to assemble craft projects. Ask friends for help with photos, flowers, even the dessert buffet. Especially now, most people are delighted to make their wedding present a gift of time and expertise.

“- DIY is not always cheaper. Pick the most meaningful, budget-friendly projects and don’t overspend on craft tools you may never use again. If you’re looking for some esoteric piece of equipment, ask for advice on one of the DIY wedding forums, or call a local art studio. Some rent studio time and tools.”

Read the rest of the story, which includes tips on do it yourself flowers as well as some great resources.

DIY Weddings: It’s not difficult to create a cash-conscious alternative

Posted by abncparties on May 31, 2009

A very interesting article about DIY weddings from the beginning appears in the Monterey County The Herald website. Jackie Burrell wrote it and quotes an early DIY bride who said: “the DIY movement was just in its infancy and pretty much for the micro-budget brides. It was all about saving money, finding the cheapest avenues to pull off a wedding.”

She was further quoted to say: “Martha Stewart’s approach to weddings and her stylish DIY projects were a turning point” and “Suddenly, DIY was chic. And the Internet’s exponentially expanding networks not only spread the word, they provided the expertise to make the movement successful.”

Jackie writes: Now DIY wedding blogs and discussion boards are popping up all over the Internet, and craft stores are responding to the trend. The DIY wedding aisles at Michaels (craft stores), for example, multiplied this year.

Tall Yellow (as in Sunshine) Wedding Centerpieces

Posted by abncparties on April 30, 2009

We found this and other pictures under an article titled “Yellow Flowers are Sunshine on Your Wedding Day” written by Holly.

Holly writes: “…When the flower shipment arrived it was like opening boxes of sunshine. I have always felt completely different about the color yellow since that day. In fact I love, love, love yellow. What bride doesn’t want sunshine on her wedding day. The color yellow is the perfect flower to use on such a happy day.” And we agree.

Ideas For Cheap Wedding Centerpieces by Albert Lee

Posted by abncparties on November 5, 2008

Contrary to popular opinion, cheap isn’t always synonymous to tacky. In fact, a tight wedding budget should in no way be a hindrance to organizing such a wonderful and momentous occasion. All you need to do is to learn some helpful techniques to maximize your resources without compromising the look of the centerpieces.

Tips To Save Money On Wedding Centerpieces

Tip #1: Choose the right centerpiece for your wedding.

For starters, you need to decide on a perfect centerpiece for your wedding. You can either create your own look or simply copy from magazines, online photos, and the like. If you have a knack for arranging flowers or if you’re very creative, then you surely have a head start in creating cheap wedding centerpieces.

Collect pictures of the centerpieces that you like and then make your mind up later on. Your decision should not be based solely on the colors. You should also take the setting, the venue and the mood into consideration. Subsequently, you need to settle on the best choice before you can move on to the next tip.

Tip #2: Estimate the costs of making the centerpieces.

Ascertain the materials needed for your chosen design. Next, determine the costs of the things you will need to recreate the look. This is actually the point where you have to make concessions in connection with the budget. Instead of purchasing expensive flowers that are out-of-season, try to settle on a similar-looking type that is in bloom at the time. These flowers are usually easier to find and more economical than the variety used in the original centerpiece.

Tip #3: Recreate the original wedding centerpiece.

Using your new-fangled and cheaper set of centerpiece materials, try to reconstruct the look of your chosen table attraction. If you’re not that good with arts and crafts, you can always ask a friend or a family member to help you out. It’s okay if your first attempt at making the centerpiece doesn’t turn out the way you expect it to. As the saying goes, “try and try until you succeed.”

Tip #4: Incorporate your own creative ideas into your wedding centerpiece.

In the course of recreating the table attraction, you can’t avoid brewing your own nifty design ideas. Be more open to such thoughts and try to integrate them into the original look. If they don’t add more beauty into your creation, you can simply thrust them aside and continue with your previous plan.
