Update from TheSunshineBride

I'm no longer engaged but I love outdoor parties & the idea of helping others who are in love, so I will be continuing the blog. This is all largely due to a lady who told me the blog helped her special day a lot.

The posts will be simplified. And if you've seen the site in the past you'll notice I've changed the theme & header. I hope you all like it.

D.I.Y. Teacup Favors + Place Cards

The Association of Bridal Consultants, San Diego Region, has a great article on making cute live plant teacup favors that double as place cards for your guests. The project was created by Hall Wedding Events and Photographer, Bryan N Miller.

You'll need a few tea cups and I'd personally go for vintage, even if mismatched, from my local thrift store as well as a few live succulents, moss, soil, and twine for attaching name tags which you can print yourself.
