I so often attend weddings and ask myself, “Why didn’t I think of that?” I am constantly amazed at the creativity of others. Frequently, an innovative wedding idea is born from using products in a way that is different from their original intent. Take the “Cake Canopy” below. It is an after market bed canopy. I recognize it, as I purchased one many moons ago for one of my daughters. She felt like a “princess” in it. 🙂 But this product is also the perfect covering for a wedding cake. It protects your cake from the elements, while still being able to be seen.
While the two heel protector products below are not new, I couldn’t write a blog post about innovative ideas and not include them. I think the concept is brilliant, but according to brides who have used them, they are less then perfect.
And below, behold…and old wash tub, a little water, candles and flowers and pow…you have a beautiful decorating item.
How cute are these champagne flutes below? I’m not positive how to create these delightful glasses, but I imagine a little black electrical tape, white ribbon, a hot glue gun, a gold pipe cleaner, and white tulle – done! Adorable!
If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, bug spray is a must. But I’ve noticed that guests get a wee bit impatient waiting for the spray bottles. The option below, providing individual packets, is fabulous! It’s always a good idea to purchase extras too. If you have 100 guests in attendance, make sure you purchase at least 150 bug repellent packets. Someone will want to reapply.
