Here are some pictures with a bit of tatting in them that I made for the wedding this weekend.
I have shown these cups before and finally, here is how they are going to be used. This tray will hold the wedding ring and the cups will be filled with scented finely sliced pandanus leaves with flower petals. The tatting is in the 'cup-huggers'.

|Tatted daisies with beads in the centre ...|

There will be bridal gift trays exchanged between the families of the bride with the groom during the solemnisation ceremony. It is customary to decorate the tray and the gifts before making the exchange. Wedding gifts decoration is big business here. That service can be obtained through specialised wedding centres or individuals who offer such work, for a fee. For this wedding, the family decided to do it ourselves. Thankfully, there are some creative people in the family and so we pool our resources.
Here are a couple that we have made.
There will be nine trays in all. I'll try and take pictures of each one and share here later.
It is all so very pretty!ReplyDelete
