My DIY Wedding Reception

My husband and I eloped while  on vacation in Las Vegas in February, so we decided that since our family and friends were not there to celebrate with us, we would host a fun reception-like party later in the year. Our reception was on July 9, 2011 at a water park resort.

Since we eloped, I decided that I wanted to throw a really nice party with lots of personal touches, so that is exactly what I did! Everyone who attended had an awesome time and adored all the DIY projects that I made. Here is a peek at a few of the ideas that I had. Enjoy!

Photo board, rock signing, and cupcake stand

Standing Menus- All 3 Sides had something different written on them

Hope you enjoyed, I have many other pictures if you are interested in other ideas that I did. I simply do not have enough space to share all the details!
