a unique wedding "theme"

this is how annie + fred decided to tie in the "B horror movie" cake idea (see last post). they chose some fun vintage B horror movie posters and gave each table it's own poster assignment. i have to admit, this was a lot more fun that just using regular table numbers.

you can kind of see the centerpieces in these photos. (i'm trying to find more!) we chose to alternate white and blue hydrangeas in corresponding aqua and clear water beads. (see pic below). the water beads were pretty cool! they start out as tiny little beads and expand in water. then we put tealights in the bottoms for a little glow. (that was annie's idea and it worked great!) i found the green fabric and cut squares for the tables for a little extra color. when the room was darkened, everything sparkled and glowed, it was very pretty. 

...and here are the escort cards! we used the movie posters to indicate table assignments for each guest. then, for a little added fun, set them on a bed of unpopped popcorn and put some decorative little popcorn bags out as well. again, i can't take credit for the popcorn idea, it was annie's. but i did make the escort cards, they turned out pretty good!
