First, I put gold photo corners on all the pics I decided to use. I then stuck the photo corners onto the display surface. This is great if you don't want to damage photos.
Here is one of the finished storyboards.
Next, I had to think of centerpieces. The hotel is providing table linens so all the tables will have a white tablecloth. I did a search and found the idea to make photo tents for the centerpieces laying them atop gold ribbon. After a trip to Joanne's the ribbon was going to be a bit expensive so I came up with a different idea.
The Photo Tents
I copied some of Grandma's wedding photos and baby and little boy pictures of the boys onto white card stock. I cropped them and mounted them on gold half sheets of card stock.
Then, I mounted these opposite one another onto a large sheet of black card stock folding each of them in half to make the tent.
I picked up a paper stack at Joanne's that had a few gold sheets inside to use for the base of the centerpiece. The stack is called "Be Mine" so it's very lovey-dovey...you know, weddings and all!
Here's how the tents will look on the day of the reception. Pretty cool, huh!
And here's a little secret you should all know about...or maybe you all ready do...Anchor Paper in St. Paul is where I picked up the gold and black card stock. They sell everything in bulk so I ended up spending about $4.00 on making the photo tents. The paper stack was on sale at Joanne's for $10.
