You're Golden

Our first anniversary has come and gone but I still have a few more posts to do on our wedding. It's been a year since then, but I am still obsessed with how pretty it was and how much I really ended up loving all of the little details.

One of the DIY projects that I had my heart set on were gold animal place card holders. I searched around and found lots of tutorials and ideas on how to make them. We took a few tips and tricks from different tutorials and did what worked best for us. We bought the animals at a local party store and then cut them all in half. Then we painted them with craft paint by hand... I wouldn't recommend painting them by hand, it took us F-O-R-E-V-E-R! Once it started getting a little too close for comfort to our wedding date and they still weren't done we enlisted the help of our friends, they were awesome.

After they were painted we glued mini magnets on the each side, so they would be able to hold our guests' place cards . Our wedding coordinator then placed an animal with the place card at each of our guests' seats. It all looked so magical and enchanting, if I do say so myself!

We made sure to save some for ourselves so we could use them as magnets at home. My brother and sister also may have gotten a few extra at our wedding, so they had enough of them to make an appearance at last years Thanksgiving dinner.

This was our invite, my friend Molly painted the picture and she did such a great job. I love little Fender! (check our her blog!)
