A Filipiniana-themed wedding is becoming more and more popular these days. Here are two great ideas to help you come up with a truly memorable fete.
This DIY project gives a more unified look for your table set-up.
Here’s what you need:
• Gold ribbons
• Glue stick
• Glue gun
• Acrylic stones
Here’s how to do it.
Step 1: Cut some ribbons and sinamay.
Step 2: Secure the fringed edges of the sinamay with glue stick. Avoid any skin contact with the melted glue.
Step 3: Add a gold ribbon on top of the cut sinamay.
Step 4: Decorate the band with buttons and acrylic stones.
Bespoke Tip: Ask the caterer for a sample piece of napkin which will be used during the reception for you to determine the correct size of the napkin ring to be crafted.
