We signed up to lovefilm just over a month ago. There was a deal on that if you sign up and use the 30 day free trial then pay for one month (£4.99), you get a free amazon voucher for £20. We received that voucher this morning and bought a retractable lead for the puppy and a heart shaped pom pom maker for the back of the chairs in the wedding meal.
We're having white chair covers with pale/pastel blue sashes and red yarn heart shaped pom poms hanging down from the middle of the bow at the back.
We already have the round pom pom makers in 2 sizes and I used the larger one for the bridesmaids bouquets and they are so easy to use. To get a pom pom the size I wanted for the bouquets, it took me about 4 hours using a cardboard template. It takes about 10 minutes with the maker. I'm really looking forward to receiving the heart shaped one although we don't have the yarn, or money to get it, yet!
Phew, busy busy past few days but that's for my other journal
My mum had bought us a printer for our early easter present and we went to hobbycraft for card so we could finally start making the invitations. I had a trial run last night and I'm really quite pleased with them!
The front of the booklet. That yarn goes from the back, around to the front and wraps around the button to hold it together.
The back of the booklet. Everything needs to be moved slightly to the right!

The heart shaped pom pom maker arrived, too. And we're going to be ordering the materials to make the ceremony backdrop and the sweetie table backdrop this month too. But I don't want to start on anything else until I have my last bridesmaid bouquet done!
I finally got round to putting the finishing touches to my bouquet! I came across the love heart, "love" banner button a couple of days ago and HAD to include it... so it's been hot glued on I also figured out how to wrap the ribbon the rest of the way round and attach the polka dot ribbon in a way that looked good to me. I'm SO happy with it!!
I think my favourite bits are the union jack button, the "love" banner and heart button and the toadstool buttons
I might get my last bridesmaids bouquet done tonight.. if I get the motivation to move :P
