Happy Anniversary!

My parents 25th wedding anniversary is coming up in a couple weeks, and I want to make sure it is extra special for the both of them. Everything I hope is perfect, right down to the little details. Everything is silver and white there is a little black in a couple things but just a couple touches. The party is on the 10th of September, I will post pics from the day so you can see how it all came together.

I made these really cool toparies for the party I have made a total of 4, 2 small and 2 large. Only 2 of them are finished but the others are very close. I used white tulle, silver netting folded them and used a toothpick to attach to the ball wrapped the stem with silver ribbon, added some small white flowers, and some gems they turned out great.


One of the big ones, put white glass rocks in the bucket, and tied a silver bow around the bucket.

Partially finished, almost there. The toothpicks sure tore up the tips of my fingers.

Close up of the unfinished one. Kinda looks like a person with crazy hair ;)

Close up of the finished one. You can see the gems and the small white flowers. They really turned out great. I was worried about them looking too handmade and not elegant enough.

                                 These are the small ones.


There actually was a wedding challenge out there that I am entering these into. So wish me luck.
