Then we placed various heights of pinwheels around the reception tables. We tried to set them up in groups of three, with the three main colors: pink, purple and orange.
Just a few days before the wedding I said, "Let's make pinwheel straws for the kids to use!" Funny thing was, the adults were using them too, and at the end several kids came up to me asking for more pinwheel straws.
The friend who made the cake for the couple used more pinwheels we made as the cake decoration. It was really cute. The cake was yummy, too. I always taste wedding cakes!
I made a bunch of felt pinwheels for the flower girls and bridesmaids to wear in their hair. After making the pinwheel I just used the end of the thread to tie them on the clips. For extra security I added a dab or two of hot glue.
This was a colorful wedding and it was a treat to make the pinwheels.
I also made a few rustic signs which we staked out in front of the facility. The bride asked the date be painted on the back of "WEDDING", so that she could hang their names and the wedding date in their new apartment.
