Last week I posted the beautiful shabby chic wedding of Charlie and Marcus which, as you might have guessed, I absolutely loved. And lots of you guys mentioned to me how much you loved it as well. So, today I have a special treat for you….
Charlie has kindly agreed to share how she put together this fabulous table plan:
Here’s your set-by-step guide. Get your best DIY hands at the ready, and off we go….
♥ Rip pages out of some old books and tea stain them
♥ Stick the pages onto a board big enough for behind your chosen frame
♥ Layer small doilies on top of the tea stained paper
♥ Place some bunting across the top (Charlie used a sample of some bunting her cousin made for the wedding)
♥ Place tiny Mr and Mrs lettering over the bunting (Charlie used lettering purchased in Brighton, but you could make your own using stencils and card)
♥ Layer up with corsage flower decorations (Charlie got hers from places like Primark, Sainburys and H&M).
♥ For each table print all the names onto cream card and rip them so they are separated
♥ Mount the printed names onto some burgandy and cream card (or the colours of your choice)
♥ Charlie also added flowers on wire (also bought from Brighton) to decorate around the frame and made some miniscule bunting using a needle and thread, and tiny triangle shapes in different colours, then drapped it around the flowers around the outside.
And hey presto – you too could have your very own beautiful shabby chic table plan! Hands up, who is going to be having a go at this?!
Thanks Charlie for giving us the know how – and if you like this and you haven’t already seen the report on the whole wedding, you definitely need to. Take a look here.
