My bride would tell you that her theme for the wedding is Lavender and Lace.
I knew we could do lavender on her budget, but wasn't sure about the lace.
Lace runners and tablecloths - even rentals - were too much to fit into the budget.
Good thing we like to do things ourselves, right?
I started looking at lace yardage - even went to the wholesale fabric district in Los Angeles -
but everything was too costly.
Where, I asked myself, could I find the kind of lace that is made into sheer lace curtains?
That would be perfect....
washable, ivory toned, just right for the touch of lace I needed
About right now you are probably saying "Well, duh!"
[It took me a little longer]
Why couldn't I actually use lace curtains?
I often tell to look outside of the box when it comes to fabric.
Just because it looks like a table cloth or curtain, doesn't mean it has to stay that way.
In the end, its just fabric.
I'll update this when I have pictures of them in use....
just a few days away....
