When the sun comes back, the wedding season begins. Are you one of the lucky ones planning to get together this year? Congratulations! If you are a wine lover, why not take it all the way and integrate it into your decoration? Here are some DIY ideas for weddings - around the theme of wine - to be adopted immediately!
As we all know, a bad placement at a wedding can cause real problems: so, establishing a seating plan becomes a public necessity if we want to avoid breaking the atmosphere. So why not make one in a wine atmosphere based on cork and corks? A little glue, some nice cardboard paper to make labels and a few caps will be enough for your guests to find their place at the table!
A little idea for a DIY bonus: with a few nicks, the caps can make great name tags.
Once the euphoria is over, the great wines consumed and the guests returned, it is always nice to keep memories of the "most beautiful day of your life". And the guestbook, with its tender little words and crispy anecdotes, can help you keep track of your wedding. How about an original guest book? Fill a pretty glass jar or stylish cage with corks, place coloured markers on the table, and let the magic work! In addition to becoming a great decorative object in your living room, the simple sight of this memory jar (or cage) will make you smile again!
If the idea of taking out your garden tables for such an occasion does not suit you, think of one of the main accessories needed to make wine: barrels! With a trestle or a beautiful glass plate, place your decoration, the famous guestbook (why not?), drinks, or a cheese and/or grape buffet to go a little further in the wine theme? Pretty and practical at the same time!
To titillate the guests' taste buds, there is nothing better than a menu with gourmet flavours, written in a pretty handwriting! On quality paper or with a beautiful printed label, directly from the bottle 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 proposed during the meal? The most epicureans will be delighted.
Tired of traditional coloured balloons, woven sheets and baroque chandeliers? Think originality, and make yourself a unique decoration, right in the theme of wines, the 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 surely surprise everyone.
