She’s tying the knot in the cutest little barn up in the north Georgia mountains, so of course it was only fitting to throw her a rustic bridal brunch full of sweet southern charm.

Remember my window panes from this post?

I just keep finding ways to use them!

    Where did you get the little chalkboard food labels? Everything is so cute!

    How did you get the window to stand on the table? The one with the cutting boards? Did you make feet?

    • Savvy Style says:

      Hi Candace!

      I actually just used 2 small metal book stands – I just put one on each end. I then used that burlap you see wrapped around the frame to cover them up and add a little decor to the base. You can find those stands pretty cheap at places like Michael’s Arts & Crafts (a couple of dollars each). Hope that helps!

    Did the permanent marker stay on the cutting board or did you have to “cure” it or clear coat it or something? What was the ring game?

    • Savvy Style says:

      Hi Laura,
      We didn’t do anything to “treat” the marker on the board because she was planning on displaying them and not using them in the kitchen. However, I bet you could do a clear coat on it – I would just maybe google first to find out what is food-safe.

      For the ring game, we had all the ladies put on a ring when they walked in, and if they said the words “bride” or “wedding” and someone else caught them, they lost their ring. The girl at the end of the shower with the most bling on her fingers won a prize. The ladies had a blast layering up their fake diamonds! :)

      Hope that helps!

    Where did you find the chunks of tree trunks? Candles? Also, does the sharpie stay on the cutting board permanently?

    • Savvy Style says:

      Hi Katie!

      The tree trunks were borrowed from a friend, but I do know you can find some at http://save-on-crafts.com. You can also find the birch candles on their website as well..they have amazing stuff!

      The bride was planning on displaying the cutting boards, so we didn’t worry about protecting them since she wouldn’t be washing them, but I bet you could do a clear coat on it – I would just maybe google first to find out what is food-safe.

      Thanks!

    Love all this! Did you make or buys the wooden frames? And is that chalk paint & chalk used inside? TIA :)

    • Savvy Style says:

      Thank you! The wooden frames are actually from Michael’s Arts & Crafts (they’re like $1 or $2 each, tops), and they are stained with regular wood stain.

      What you see in the frames is actually “chalk card stock” that you can also find at Michael’s in the scrapbook section (usually the aisle with the massive row of fun colored paper). You can buy it by the sheet and cut it down…so I got about 2-3 frames per sheet.

      I used a white chalk pen on those and on all the large chalk boards you see in the images….they tend to write much nicer, and you can erase with just water! The good thing about the chalk board card stock is that its cheap and disposable, but you can totally erase on it if you mess up!

      Hope that helps! :)

      • Jennifer says:

        Thanks so much! It helps but the nearest Michaels to me is over 2 hrs away :( But I’m hopin hobby lobby will have the chalk board paper & pen maybe! It’s only an hour away! Lol

        • Savvy Style says:

          I bet they do…I use Hobby Lobby a lot as well, and they have a ton of great supplies! Don’t forget to download their iphone app before you go and use their app coupons! But in case they don’t have the paper, I just found this paper HERE on etsy and it looks similar to what I used. They can ship for pretty cheap, it looks like! You can also find the pens on amazon.com.

      • Brianna Crisp says:

        Hello, just wondering about the large frame with their “timeline,” Did you chalk paint the glass on that? Or is it stock paper as well? Thanks, in advance! Love all the decor, similar to what I’m doing for my party. Very fun to look at all your displays!

  7. Liz G says:

    Love all your decorations! Where did you find the fake diamond rings?

    • Savvy Style says:

      Thanks Liz! I got the rings at Michael’s Arts & Crafts – in the Bridal section. They come in packs of 12 for just a couple dollars. They also worked great on the bachelorette cupcakes I made! (post coming soon with pics of those!) :) Hope that helps!
