How to Make Decorations for Weddings

Pin It

When throwing together a wedding, the costs can add up very quickly. There are so many things that go into a wedding. You have to pay for the cake, the dress and tuxedo, the food, the venue, and the list goes on. To top it off, it’s expected to hang up decorations. The costs for these items can rack up as well. To cut down on expenses for Cape Cod weddings, be sure you know how to make your own decorations.

Pom-Poms

One popular decoration to feature at a wedding is pom-poms made from tissue paper. This is not at all hard to do, and you can create many within a short amount of time with a small task force. Starting out, stack a few layers of tissue paper. Gather about 5 layers, give or take, depending on how full you want the pom-poms to be. Fold the stacked tissue papers accordion-style until you’re left with one long strip. Trim off the ends into whatever shape you desire. Then take a pipe cleaner and twist it around the middle of the strip, leaving a “stem” that spans a few inches. Last, pull the layers of the tissue paper apart to “fluff” it. By the end of this task, you should have pom-poms that you can hang from the ceiling.

Paper Roses

For empty wall space for Cape Cod weddings, consider making roses out of paper. Again, this is a short and easy process. First of all, gather together cardstock paper and set up a glue gun station. Cut out the paper so that it forms a large circular spiral that ends in the middle of the paper. Take the outside end and begin rolling the paper inwards. Be sure to keep the roll tight as you do this. When you’ve wound the paper so it reaches the other end, stop. Let go of the paper so it loosens and a rose naturally forms; you may need to unwind it manually if it’s too tight. Last, put a small dab of hot glue on the inside end of the paper spiral. Glue this part to the wound-up paper rose that should be on the top. When the glue dries, your rose should be complete.

Mailday Tuesday {23 July}

I went for a couple of errands after the little man’s playschool class and I am glad that he was so willing to accompany me as we go about our lined up itinerary for the day. After a stop at his fave, Jollibee, for lunch, we proceed to the Water District before finally heading to the Post Office to mail a bunch of cards. I am so relieved to find out that government offices are now open during lunch time. It makes it very convenient for people like me who just squeeze in the trip to pay the bills among a bunch of other errands.

Here is my mailing list that day:

  • Marja M, Finland ~ Mayon Volcano

I hope these cards find their way to their respective destinations soon. Did you find your name in it?  :-))

Topping Off Your Vacation With A Fishing Charter

Pin It

travel, travel tips

Tropical seaside vacations in Hawaii can be among the most memorable. Walks on the beach, swimming through the ocean, sightseeing, and the like can create the trip of a lifetime for you and your friends or family. One addition you could make to your trip for an even better experience is a Kona fishing charter trip. Climbing aboard a fishing boat with experts who are well-trained with deep-sea fishing and small-game fishing can provide a wonderful experience for all involved! Read on for more information about what advantages a fishing charter trip can offer you.

Catching and Seeing Seriously Big Game

Have you ever experienced the exhilaration of reeling in a 150-pound marlin or a 200-pound tuna, you have a great thing coming! With the professional equipment and safety features of a trustworthy fishing charter, you and your loved ones can enjoy a whole day or just a morning or afternoon of great fishing. Many offer the option to use normal rods as well, in the event that the big game aren’t biting or you’re just in the mood for smaller game. Check to see if the fishing charter offers the option of filleting and packaging the fish you catch; that way, you can enjoy it for weeks to come! On the other hand, you can enjoy the fun of catch-and-release, too, especially if you happen to catch blue marlins or other rare types of fish. You may even find a fishing charter that knows where the best spots are for whale sightings.

 Fantastic Swimming and Snorkeling

Don’t just limit yourself to fishing; get in the water yourself! Many fishing charters offer the chance to access beautiful and safe locations for your swimming and snorkeling pleasure. Check ahead of time to see whether you should bring your own gear or whether you can rent directly from the fishing charter company. Snorkeling can provide a wonderful underwater adventure; you’ll be dazzled with the array of fish, turtles, coral, and sealife you’ll see! Put on a pair of flippers and you’ll be skimming along underwater. A Kona fishing charter can provide some unique experiences to top off your Hawaiian vacation.

Got another surprise in the mail

Pin It

I have been busy swapping with my fellow local postcrossers and I have just recently received another surprise in the mail. It comes in the form of these lovely mint Nat Geo ad cards {which I shall be swapping off to other postcrossers, too} and this new issue of our favorite magazine, Cars. It was timely that Roselyn offered to include this in our swap as I have not gotten around to buying the little man his own copy. Now I was able to save some moolah, thanks to this swap! 😀

I sent a bunch of big cards in exchange for this goodies and I really love my loot! I am working on a few more swaps and I am hoping I will also get loads of lovely things out of them.

Thanks Roselyn for swapping and until our next swap! ^_^
