Painted Pots for Wedding Shower

A good family friend of ours got married back in December (goes to show just how much I have been lagging on my blogging) and I was asked to decorate some pots for the wedding shower. I did these ones in my garden and everybody loved them!

The pots were first spray painted white, and then I just used a bold permanent marker and drew the designs free-hand. I then went back over with a fine tip pen and drew in a couple more little details.  It was much easier for me to use a pen and draw the designs on than paint them like I did my last ones. Plus it was quicker and didn't need as much time to dry. After I was done, I sprayed a clear coating over the outside to protect the design and on the inside to help keep the pot from absorbing up too much of the water. The plants won't last as long if the terra cotta pot is sucking up all the water.

The wedding invitations had this cute little black scroll design to them, so I used that as the inspiration behind the design.

The plants and pots were all prizes for some of the games we played, but I made a big special one for the bride and groom with their names and the year at the top.

This was what the tables turned out like. The bags were a lucky find from Palace and inside there were little things for each guest to take home: mirror, lip gloss, chapstick, nail polish, and candy.
These pots were a HUGE success and people really loved winning them- especially when they found out that somebody there actually took time out of their day to make them. It made me feel really good and I was happy I could do something like that for the bride and groom.
