I’m currently working on various projects for my upcoming October wedding. Our colors are purple and grey. For the centerpieces, I chose groups of three glass cylinders containing a single eggplant calla lily. The cylinders will be filled with water with a floating candle floating on top of each. The effect will be similar to picture below.
My dress is extremely lacy, and I am incorporating lace into various aspects of the decorations. I wanted to include both lace and grey into the centerpieces, so I chose to crochet doilies to place under the centerpieces. I searched Ravelry for free doily patterns and chose Doily 4403 8 Point Star. The pattern creates a 9 3/4″ doily. To achieve a more appropriate size for my purposes (17 “), I used a size 0 crochet hook rather than a size 11. I’m making the doilies out of Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread in Misty Grey.
I recruited my grandmother and great aunt to help me make some of the 20+ doilies need for the reception. That’s a lot of doilies! Since I will busy with these, my summer knit-a-long project Nachtfalter, and some surprise projects for my wedding party, I won’t have “new” project to blog about for quite some time. I have pictures of quite a few old projects to blog about until I finish.
