Our New Favorite DIY Wedding Project: Ribbon Favor Bags


Here’s a DIY wedding project that packs a big punch. Favor bags made from fabric ribbon beat out plain organza bags hands down, and they’re easy to whip up. When you incorporate them into your table setting, they double as decorations for your tablescape. And, OK, we’re extra partial to this fab idea because it comes from our new sister site, Sew Jewish. Get the instructions.

Wedding DIY: How to Decorate a Table with Garland

Garland wedding decorations

Let me refine the title of this article: it should be “How to Decorate a Table with Garland WITHOUT Putting Holes in Your Table or Your Tablecloth.” The conventional method of attaching garland to a table requires sticking pins into the table through the tablecloth. Not ideal, especially when the table and tablecloth are your own.

To style our wedding punch photo shoot we avoided putting holes in our cloth and table by attaching the beautiful Ruscus garland with tablecloth clamps.

The key is to use heavy duty metal clamps rather than the plastic versions. Use pieces of florist wire to attach the greenery to the clamps.
