DIY Wedding Welcome
When planning a wedding or reception held in your own home or in a stately manor with a gorgeous front door, instead of using a welcome sign down the driveway, here's a way to personalize the actual entryway.
Hang the first letter of the first name of the bride and groom to doors that will stay shut or propped open. Not only will this make a cute photo op, it's a way to tie in a little personality to a building that may not be your home.
At the above left, the letters H and K, are gorgeous lush moss signs. You can create your own by buying wood or hollow metal capital letters from craft stores and glue on sheets of thin moss or fabric which looks natural. (Or, for a similar twist, cover the letters in fabric that you like and have that be your pattern!) The letters on the right (the M and W) were made in a similar way but covered in seasonal flowers instead. Tie a thick sturdy ribbon around the top of the letters and attach that to a nail in the door.
