We already had plenty of wood in our venue, given that it was made of 100 year old baltic pine.
But I wanted to decorate with more wood.
Like Rachel and Brent's wedding that I talked about back here:
Or like this lovely cottony, woodsy, wedding that I found while planning:
So we* collected some wood! (*by 'we' I mean 'I' scavenged from the side of the road and random people's houses).
And we^ spent hour upon hour trying to saw straight lines through the hardest wood ever using only a hand-saw! (^by 'we' I mean my spunky husband and thoughtful Dad).
And we came up with just what I had in mind!
1. Wood to form centre-pieces. For vases and candles to sit on and around.
2. Wood to hold our menus.
I love my wood bits.
