Brainstorming DIY Wedding Ideas

Title: “Brainstorming DIY Wedding Ideas”

By: Jennifer Tang of MaJenta Designs

As I go through my wedding checklists, I find myself most excited in daydreaming of all the fun things I can personally make to give our wedding some personal touches. I have been googling images of wedding reception decorations, gift favors, and more – to get inspiration of ideas of things I could make for my own wedding!

For example, since our wedding will be an outdoors, summertime wedding – I thought it’d be great to make something similar to these programs that double as fans to help cool down our guests during the ceremony!

If only I had the time – I think making some place cards similar to these would really make our reception stand out!

These funny strawberries were actually from a social gathering I went to, and think it’d be such a  fun idea to serve such unique tasty treats at the wedding.

There are so many fun things to think and daydream about!  Now if only I had the time to handmake it all!

And of course since MaJenta Designs, my handcrafted business, is such a large part of who I am now, I definitely want to incorporate those designs into our wedding somehow too!  I’m thinking of making some sort of gift favors using these useful mint tins! 🙂

Sakura Treasury

My latest product in my chiyogami line has been included into an Etsy Treasury! I just started making these gorgeous chiyogami night lights. This gorgeous nightlight makes a beautiful decorative piece around any home. It looks stunning lit up or simply by itself. The shade is decorated with chiyogami (traditional Japanese handmade paper). Nightlight is 120 volts and comes with a 5 watt bulb. It measures 4 inches in height.

This can be purchased in my online shop at www.majentadesigns.etsy.com . The nightlight listing is found at: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=12175772
