Pom Pom Hooray!

 A wonderful weekend away with Martino at the wedding of A+F.  We laughed, danced, chatted and felt totally inspired by the stories of the people we met, the love and warmth of the event and the beauty of the surroundings.

The afternoon before the big day involved a little participation from crafty curious folk.  The peeps wanted to know all about the complexities of the tissue paper pom poms.   Therefore, after a little tutorial, my crafty team grew from this.....

to this:

I think some people were totally inspired to get their crafty on....  which made me very     H A P P Y!!    This meant that the big job of carefully opening and fluffing up the pom poms was made that much easier - many hands/light work and all ;-)  .  By the end of that afternoon, our cabin was filled with the tissue paper pretties,  ready to be hung up the following morning. 

After the ceremony rehearsal and a little breakfast, the exciting job of putting the decorations up began....

Having help from many qualified Architects (and their well known eye for detail) felt a little daunting at first.....but I need not have worried.  The result was more beautiful and effective than I could have imagined:

The very clever groom made these pretty tea light candle holders.....very effective and thrifty!

I am truly honored to have been asked to have my crafty input on this very special event.    To have the guests enjoy these creations and to take them home at the end of the weekend, was more than I could have wished for.  Craftyclaudes made with love, to be enjoyed by others, because they also fell in love with them.  Super!
