Katrina shares what inspired her to create this romantic escort card display: "Were you that girl that dreamed of her wedding? Do you have endless dreams of you in that beautiful dress? Or did you feel like a little princess every time you put on a gown? Well hey you aren’t alone. As young ladies, we often think of ourselves as princesses, and some of the childhood favorites is snow what, Cinderella, Barbie or even princess jasmine; but as we grow into woman we still never do away with all the lovely fairytales. I instantly think of poufy dresses, beautiful shades of pink and rose and amazing shoes of course; therefore that’s why I de-cided to create an amazing escort card table to fit that modern fairytale bride."
"The escort card table consist of bling and fillers, several shades of pink, beautiful orchids, beautiful lilies as the centerpiece, and last a very mod-ern but yet simple escort card that’s attached to each vase for your guest."
DIY Centerpieces
I cut the steams from the both the lily plant and orchid plant. For the lily centerpiece I took between 2-4 flowers and submerged them in water upside down, than added about 10-12 orchids in a bunch, and attempted to get that hang over effect. For the orchid, I simply added the orchid to a tall vase filled with water and adjusted the flowers to my likings.
DIY Escort Card Candle
Cut ribbon approximately 1 ft. I than used a glue dot to assemble the ribbon together, after the ribbon is on the vase tightly, I attached the escort card with hot glue via the glue gun. Afterwards I filled my vase with my bling/fillers, and than added water, votives holders, and votive candle. I lit the candle and there you have a beautiful escort card and candle.
"The escort candle can also be used for personal take home favor for your guest. This table is filled with all types of fabulosity; however this table represents elegance, style and last but not least…grace."
