    Re: Sweetie Table!!

    I'm doing a DIY version of it.  Here are the jars I have bought so far:

    The three jars at the front are £3.75 each from wilkos:

    The rest of the jars I got for £1 each from a car boot sale!

    Then I started making some vintage looking labels and ribbons for the jars.  Each type of sweet will have a different coloured label eg:

    As for the sweets I am doing a number of things.  I've been saving up my Nectar points and will be buying the sweets with those and I've found some cheap sweetie bags on ebay which you can get in any colour:

    Good luck!

    Do you mind me asking where you got your LOVE dishes from?

    And also how did you do your marshmallow tree? And what is it on the other tree?

    Re: Sweetie Table!!

    Thanks guys, the table went down so well. I bought the marshmallow tree from eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MARSHMALLOW-SWEET-TREE/251071581455?ssPageName=WDVW&rd=1&ih=015&category=3260&cmd=ViewItem#ht_622wt_922 the lady was so great, I also bought a malteaser and forerro rocher tree so she did them for £12 each. They essentially were polystyrene balls with cocktail sticks. she did the colours to match my theme too. I borrowed the LOVE dishes from a friend as online they were £20+and I was buying all the other items from charity shops etc as I was on a budget. At the end on the night we had marshmallow competitions - how many can you fit in your mouth in one go :)

    Re: Sweetie Table!!

    Ah that's cool, I think we might have a go at making our own! I think I know how to make the ball bit, just wasn't sure what to use as the 'trunk' and the best way to weight it!

    Ah, I've had a quick google since and yes they are expensive! Don't suppose your friend wants to sell them? hehe We're on a budget too and for £75 your table looks amazing!

    We've been and bought a couple of fishbowls and vases from the range and matalan today...just wanting some cheap martini glasses now!

    Marshmellow competition sounds awesome hehe!

    I haven't got them yet, I've found them online but a little bit more than I'm wanting to pay, hoping to find some 2nd hand but here's what I've found:

    Re: Sweetie Table!!

    I said to her she should change people as everyone who went to her wedding wants to borrow them (I got in there first!) I didn't have Martini glasses but I'll be selling the Sunday/ice cream glasses I used (got the love hearts in etc....) and the bowl with the Ferrero Rocher in.
