Blue and Silver: Creative Send-Offs

Martha Stewart Weddings, Winter 2006

Let guests fete the happy couple with a color-coordinated send-off; the supplies can be handed out before the ceremony or set out at the reception. Silver comes naturally to this mix in the form of tiny wedding bells and metal-stemmed sparklers. Simple embellishments, including ribbon and patterned paper, provide splashes of blue.

Confetti Container How-To
1. Start with a 4-by-6-inch piece of medium-weight paper.

2. Roll paper into a tube, pattern side out, with a 1-inch overlap; secure with double-sided tape.

3. Close bottom edge with double-sided tape, and add a handful of silver confetti. Then tape top edge closed so that the crease runs perpendicular to the one at the bottom.

4. Create a small loop in center of two 20-inch lengths of thin ribbon; knot.

5. Set the knot at the top of the container so the ribbon ends dangle down either side. Knot ribbon ends at bottom of container. Trim ends.
