Fall/Nautical Wedding and Tinting Glass Bottles

I recently had the honor of decorating for a friend’s wedding. She had decided on beautiful jewel tone colors with a mix of flowers, white pumpkins and a hint of the sea.

The proposal took place while taking a boat ride…discovering a message in a bottle…).Table SettingThe day was as gorgeous as she was and everything fell into place. Here are a few of the decorations…as well as my experience (How to instructions) on tinting glass bottles to fit her wedding theme.Happily

Crate view

She married a real life captain and fisherman…so the lobster crate was a must! 🙂Wedding arborI love the handcrafted arbor her hair stylist made for the celebration.

Crop bottleThe bottles did not turn out to look as solid in color as seen at It’s Overflowing, but it worked for bottles lost at sea.

I did follow all the instructions…except, I used regular food coloring (I already had) instead of the recommended gel tubes (coloring).Food ColoringIt must be the key.  So, if I make them again I will definitely use the gel.Bottles DrainingThe only thing I would add to her instructions, is when you (quickly) flip the drained upside down bottles to an upright position, hold a paper towel (firmly) at the opening (before flipping it over).  Bootles AirAwe…they looked so pretty before going into the oven. 🙂

Although, not perfect, they were the perfect touch to complete our table display.Screen Shot 2015-11-19 at 3.41.38 PM
