When the good days return, it's the wedding season that begins. Are you one of the lucky ones planning to get married this year? Congratulations! If you're a wine lover, why not take it all the way and integrate it into your decoration? Here are a few DIY wedding ideas - based on the theme of wine - to adopt illico!
As we all know, a bad placement at a wedding can cause real problems: therefore, establishing a seating plan becomes a public necessity if we want to avoid breaking the mood. So why not make one in a wine atmosphere based on cork and cork stoppers? A touch of glue, some nice cardboard to make labels and a few corks will be enough for your guests to find their place at the table!
Bonus DIY idea: with a few notches, corks can make great name tags.
Once the euphoria has passed, the great wines consumed and the guests returned home, it is always nice to keep memories of the "most beautiful day of your life". And the guestbook, with its tender little words and crisp anecdotes, can help you keep track of your wedding. How about an original guestbook? Fill a pretty glass jar or a stylish cage with corks, place the coloured markers on the table, and let the magic happen! In addition to becoming a great decorative object in your living room, the simple sight of this jar (or cage) of memories will put a smile back on your face!
If the idea of taking out your garden tables for such an occasion does not suit you, think about one of the main accessories needed to make wine: barrels! With a trestle or a beautiful glass board, place your decoration, the famous guest book (why not?), drinks, or a cheese and/or grape buffet to go a little further into the wine theme? Pretty and practical at the same time!
To titillate the taste buds of the guests, there's nothing better than a menu with gourmet flavours, written in pretty handwriting! On quality paper or with a beautifully printed labelWhether it's on the bottle itself or hung by a string around the neck, there are as many possibilities as your imagination allows! And why not rethink the menu into a wine list offered during the meal? The most epicurean will be delighted.
Fed up with the traditional colourful balloons, woven sheets and baroque chandeliers? Think originality, and make yourself a unique decoration, right in the theme of wines, rustic and the pleasures of the table: a suspension in corks! Armed with your glue gun, wooden hoops, string and a little patience, let your creativity express itself for this atypical decoration, which will not fail to surprise everyone.
