After looking around on Google, I found a whole bunch of ideas for things we could use as decorations for the party! I really like the look of pages from books being reused. For this post, I am going to give a quick overview on the decorations, then I will link to the how-to posts.
|I made votive candle holders with book pages, sheet music, and scientific drawings.
|This was one of the food platters.
|Some of the vases using pages and twine.
|We put together the votive holders and and vases using pages from books.
|I got glassware used from Salvation Army. One of the other bridesmaids brought these lovely blue scarves to use as table runners.
|I made a paper runner from an old German book and hung it above all the windows and door ways.
|This is a dark photo of the runner.
|A better photo. I just used paper bags as the backing.
|We took shredded book pages and placed them in glass jars. To go along with the blue accents, one of the bridesmaids cut out blue heats and pasted on heats made from book pages. It looked so nice.
