Handmade Weddings: Inspiration for Events & Décor

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

An Amazon search for weddings returns over twenty thousand results. The world wasn’t in need of another wedding book, right? Wrong. This one fills a niche that no other title has successfully done: encourage brides to creatively hand make décor for their big day. I love this book so much that, although I’m married, I bought it. I thought…what the heck, I’ll throw a party just so I can make these fantastic crafts…

Decorate for your next dinner, afternoon tea, baby (or wedding) shower or neighborhood gathering using these ideas.
