Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #15 - Winter Wedding!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!! I still have family visiting, so I haven't had a chance to stop by and see all of your wonderful projects and I apologize. I hope to catch up with everyone this weekend :)

The challenge this week at Decorate To Celebrate is a Winter Wedding!  Let's celebrate EVERYTHING WONDERFUL ABOUT TYING THE KNOT (during the winter months) with your table decorations, party banners, pennants, yard signs, cupcakes, party favors and more!!
For my winter wedding decorations, I created a lighted branch centerpiece! I gathered some branches from the yard and then spray painted them white. Once they dried, I bound them together with wire. The snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch using Core'dinations Core Couture paper. I punched a hole in the center with my Crop-a-dile and then attached them with thread. I strung some lights on the branches and stuffed the rest in the canister to hold the branches and provide ambient light :)
The background tag is a Spellbinders Nestabilities die, embossed with the Spellbinders Flowers Impressability plate. The bride and groom are from Sweethearts at 3" and I added pearls for her bouquet. The bottom tag is also a Spellbinders die and I attached it with crinkle ribbon from my sweet friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces! "Today is Your Day" is a K Andrew Designs stamp from Positive Thoughts stamp set! Click HERE to purchase your own set!
I am also linking this up at Robin's Creative Cottage's Link Up Party! You are supposed to link up your favorite project in the last month!

Now it's your turn! Head over to Decorate to Celebrate and link up your Winter Wedding project! I can't wait to see what you create :)
