Ribbon, Ribbon Everywhere!

I ended up having a ribbon bonanza last weekend. I bought these pink hued ribbons at a booth in Canton (the world's largest flea market) for pretty presents and packages.

On Friday, after school, I had stopped in at Michael's to buy a birthday gift and per usual sorted through the dollar ribbon bin to see if there was anything good. Lately I haven't found that much but last Friday I hit the jackpot so to speak. I bought this brown gingham ribbon. I don't know if it will fit into the wedding in anyway (welcome bags?) since brown is a fall color but it's not really the wedding colors but brown gingham ribbon can be used in so many ways for packages, decorating, etc. that I snatched it up.

These are my wedding color ribbon finds of the weekend! Spools from Michael's dollar ribbon bin and striped ribbon in glass canister from Canton. Doesn't it look like ribbon candy? Yellow has not figured into the wedding colors before but I liked this color yellow and perhaps some little snatches of yellow will make an appearance in a few places or perhaps not. We'll see.

If you have ideas of what I can do with any of this lovely ribbon for the wedding, I'd love to hear them. Have a great day! Kelly
