Chalkboard & Yellow Wedding Decorations
Continuing with our chalkboard theme, we’ve put together some inexpensive details and centerpieces to fit your wedding decorations budget.

Yellow, White & Black Chair Decoration with Babies BreathYellow, White & Black Wedding Decorations with Babies BreathChalkboard & Yellow Wedding Decorations

1. Dress up the pews or chairs along your wedding aisle or at the reception with a galvanized pitcher filled with fresh daisies, babies breath and patterned ribbons. What makes these affordable wedding decorations fun is that the galvanized containers don’t have to be exactly the same size and shape. Mixing them up will give you a custom look.

2. Shop thrift stores and you’ll find lots of milk glass containers like this short vase. It was $1 and I love the dotted pattern.

3. Want to tie in a vintage feel on a budget? Bouquets of baby’s breath can be dressed up with a few doily flowers tucked in and a doily collar wrapped around the top of the vase. I bought this vase for $1, too! Search your local thrift store for plenty of doilies for super cheap.

4. Mix and match shapes and sizes of glass jars, dress them up with ribbon or grosgrain flower adornments. Add fresh cut wildflowers, yellow wax flowers and baby’s breath.

5. Paper straws are very trendy right now. Dress them up with some DIY drink flags and have guests write their names on flags to I.D. their drinks.

6. These whimsical His and Hers Toasting Flutes will add the perfect touch of charming décor to your head table.

7. Pick up mini chalkboards at your local craft store and use them for table numbers.

8. Stain the wooden frame for a more rustic feel and use as your chair décor. Drill holes and add ribbon for hanging.

9. Order lots of napkins to have at your dessert table, bar and for appetizers. Personalize them with your names, date and a coordinating design.

10. Place mum plants next to your chairs to line your aisle. After the ceremony, offer wedding helpers a plant to take with them as a thank you. These were a bargain at our local grocery store — 3 plants for $9.99.

Colorful wedding napkins

During the Victorian era, high-class citizens adapted the monogram for personal use as a symbol of their place in society. Lucky for us, everyone has free reign over monograms today!


A unique mixture of identity and design, monograms become an elegant and sophisticated motif that can bring any wedding to a new height in style. Ann’s offers a beautiful selection of traditional monogram wedding invitations, but we also offer single-initial monograms on a wide range of items, many of which can be used in the home after the wedding. Just leave the wedding date off, and it becomes timeless.



Consider adding your monogram to these popular items. It’s easy and affordable!

• Thank you notes
• Napkins
• Favor or Envelope Seals
• Cupcake and Cake Boxes
• Coasters
• Matches
Place Cards



How will you use monograms at your wedding?

We’ve found an awesome website that shows you how to do several beautiful napkin folds. You can see a few of our favorites for wedding napkins below. Check it out at http://www.napkinfoldingguide.com/ and find more options to fit your wedding theme plus lots of other good information.

Bird of Paradise Napkin Fold Crown Napkin Fold

Bird of Paradise Fold Crown Napkin Fold

Shop Ann’s soft, 3-ply wedding napkins available in a variety of colors to coordinate beautifully with your wedding! They’ll work great for many of the folds shown at NapkinFoldingGuide.com since paper napkins tend to hold their shape better than cloth. Do be aware that rounded folds will look better with cloth napkins. So choose a fold with sharp corners for your wedding napkins from Ann’s.

NapkinFoldingGuide.com also reminds us of a few important napkin etiquette rules:

• Never let a napkin sit beside your plate. Always lay it on your lap.

• Traditionally, guests wait for the host to pick up and unfold his/her napkin first.

• Gently dab at your mouth when using your napkin. No large sweeping motions.

• Lay your napkin on your lap before dinner is served to create more room at the table.

• If you leave the table or are finished eating, lay the napkin to the left of your plate.

• Napkins should be placed in your lap, not tucked into your pants or shirt — unless you’re eating something especially messy, like spaghetti.

Wedding Planning Checklist: Section 3: Part 6


What you need for a Classic Bridal Shower:

The classic bridal shower is timeless. It works for any bride and we’re certain you’ll be able to pull off a beautiful party for a budget-friendly price.


Start by having guests sign in with the Umbrella Bridal Shower Guest Book. Guest books make great keepsakes for the bride. Transform some of the guest book pages into pre-made scrapbook pages for the bride to add photos and other memorabilia from the shower.


Continue the theme with Personalized Napkins featuring the Umbrella Shower design or Bridal Shower design. (Estimate two napkins per guest.)


Small White Favor Boxes make excellent favors when personalized with the same design as featured on your napkins. Fill them with your choice of treats.


Check out Netting for Favors and fill the netting circles with Scented Lavender Blossoms for a cute air freshener favor.



What you need for a “Sweet Love” Bridal Shower:

We love this theme because it’s creative, fun and simple. You can add extra details for a more elaborate theme or just keep it easy. Either way, it will be a fabulous bridal shower.


Start by having guests sign in with the White Guest Book. Again, guest books make great keepsakes for the bride, especially with pre-made scrapbooked pages.


Continue the theme with Personalized Napkins featuring the Intertwined Hearts design or Love/Heart design. (Estimate two napkins per guest.) $20 per 100.


Heart-Shaped Favor Boxes are perfect “Sweet Love” favors when personalized with the same design as featured on your napkins and filled with treats.


Cookie Cutter Favors are also a great idea. You can create recipe cards printed with favorite cookie recipes and attach them to the cookie cutters (or check out our professionally printed Cookie Cutter Cards).


Place some cheap glass jars from your local dollar store along the tables, and fill them with Wedding Candy Hearts for a sweet centerpiece and even sweeter treat.
