From early on in the wedding planning progress, I wanted to make as many things myself as possible for the wedding- for both the cost efficiency and personalization factor. One of the things that was on my to make list was table runners. Somewhere in the wonderful world of online fabric shopping I first stumbled upon this fabric by Paula Prass- a gorgeous yellow-y lime coloured trellis print, the perfect summery colour to make our wedding "colours" pop (lime, pewter and white for those of you interested in those kind of things).
So, with a week before our house was invaded by 8 of H's family, and 7.5 meters of this print and a plain pewter grey coloured fabric for the border-'cuz I couldn't just do a simple 1 fabric runner now could I!- in tow, my mom and I set about planning the 9 table runners we would need for our 72 person wedding.
After whipping up a test model, in which we tested the measurements, and determined that mitered corners were the best plan, were were pretty quickly able to put together the 5 long runners and 4 square runners for the reception tables. To fit banquet tables for 10 people they were long suckers, thank goodness for ping pong tables!
Our professional pictures are not in yet, but here you can see a sneak peek of them (and H and I) in action.
The leftovers of the lime fabric will be going in the back of my Mondrian quilt to serve as a memory for H and I for years to come.
But, in the meantime... I'm left with 9 table runners. So, I thought to celebrate our big day that sharing the wealth is in order.
If you are interested in winning one of these table runners, leave a comment and tell me the craziest thing you did during your wedding (or other party) planning/preparations, and random.org and I will pick a winner on Aug 14th. Oh, don't forget to include an e-mail address where I can contact you in case you win!
