|I love these little candleholders!|
It'll look a bit like this, but probably a little bit more bright and fun. I only hope that it'll still look elegant. The books I'll be using are encyclopedias, which I already have around the house and are thus free. I've seen some like this with huge, elaborate bouquets on top, but I don't really think that looks quite as simply elegant as a single stem would lying on top of the books. I could see a red rose looking just stunning. But I'll probably do a very small, simple white crane bouquet tied parallel to the books (as in, just lying on top of them), tied with white ribbon and a simple bow.
I'll have to be sure to take photos when I work on the actual project. For now, though, I'm looking at papers that might work for covering the books. Here are just a few of my favorites. I could even get personalized wrapping paper, if I was so inclined. I don't think I will, but it's cool that it's out there. Though I love looking at these patterns online, I'll probably be making my purchases at stores I can travel to in person. I might also dye some of my own wrapping paper, the same way I have for my origami paper. But I think I have a pretty solid plan of attack, no matter what paper I pick.
One of these days, I'm might actually start accomplishing something. Can you believe I ever had my wedding planned for TOMORROW?!? Drives me crazy thinking about it!
