Nostalgia & Napkin Rings

I realized a few weeks ago my group of friends is now in round two of the wedding cycle. Round one was right after college, all the couples graduated and got hitched. It seemed like there was a wedding every six months, that group has now moved on to babies. But back to round two, these are my friends that were single at the end of college and met someone after relocating. Three weddings within the next year. I am so very happy for them, and so very happy not to be them. I don’t EVER want to plan a wedding again. The budgeting, the balancing and the coordinating, oh god the coordinating! So many stories. All the realization and reminiscing resulted in me clicking around a few of my favorite bookmarked wedding blogs and, of course finding, a DIY that I just had to share.

The inspiration for these gilded napkin rings came from a table-scape designed by Firefly Events. The rings they used were actually bracelets from Anthro, which was an ingenious idea, but with a price tag of $48 a piece a bit expensive. So the design team at Ruffled got creative and traced down golden arrow findings from this Etsy seller, threw in a little elbow grease and ta-da, golden arrow napkin rings for a fraction of the price.
