Origami Crane

for my easy reference when I finally have the time to sit down and do...

The following instructions are from Jewswar

Paper Rosettes

Something interesting...let me just copy paste it onto my blog for easy reference (with full credits to the owner

  • Scrapbook paper or card stock
  • Doilies
  • Stapler
  • Glue gun

1. To make a large wheel; fold 3 sheets of paper accordion or fan style,

2. Fold each fan in half and staple edges together.

3. Next, staple all three folded fans to each other to complete your wheel.

4. You can leave the large and small wheels plain or stack them with a doilie for added effect. I hot glued all the layers for the stacked rosettes.


Solemnization Venue

Just came back from booking my solemnization venue. So for today, I shall update on the procedure for booking of mosque for solemnization ceremony.

If any of you bride/groom-to-be wants to have your solemnization ceremony in a mosque in Singapore, all you have to do is call up the mosque to enquire about availability and then proceed to the venue to fill up some forms and make payments.These needs to be done before registering at ROMM and the earliest date you can book i s 3 months in advance.If you haven't decide the time, its ok, you can confirm with them again at a later date.

For myself,Venue chosen was Assyafaah Mosque.
Just go there, fill out a form (date and time of the ceremony) and make payment of $180 (this is only for the use of musollah for the solemnization ceremony only.
The venue can accomodate about 200pax and it can be used for 2-3hrs as long as it does not affect the activities in the mosque.

So for my event, I am free to use it in the morning before Dzhohor (which is before 12noon). more thing done! Shall meet my caterer tmr. :)

Table Centrepieces for Guestbook Table

I need to finalise what i'm gonna do for the table centrepieces like NOW and not be fickle about it!
Something simple,not too costly, yet unique and not too time-consuming.

So i've decided to go for something elaborate for the guestbook table only...
Materials needed :
1) branches (kene pegi cari kayu and spray paint it dark brown, or purchase willow tree branches)
2) medium-height cylindrical vase (make do with what I have at home )
3) Japanese craft paper (to cover vase)
4) pink crepe papers / tissue (for flowers) / carnations
5) crsytal drops

guest tables centrepiece : have decided to go with zen-inspired centrepieces but have not decided yet

Choice 1 :  
* might be a problem with purchasing too many vases

Choice 2 :

* need to purchase lanterns but i kinda like this

Choice 3 :  

* collect and spray paint starbucks frap bottles. :D

Venue Deco

Will be meeting Kak Zila from Splendour Moments this Monday to recce actual venue and finalise deco plans.
A recap on the original package chosen : Silvery Sweetz

but i'm thinking of making some changes. Don't want too many colours - mainly greys and a touch of pink. So no black feathers or frames and all that messy stuff. I was thinking somewhere along these :

Yup, only one tone of grey please.Prefer the 2nd pic.No ferns for me and something definitely need to be done about those cushions and flowers. Initially wanted to add pink flowers like this :

but Mr Fiance is against it. He doesnt want the flowers to outshine us.LOL.and due to my nose allergy maybe its advisable not to, else i won't stop sneezing. So any other things I can add to my pelamin so that it doesnt look too plain and ordinary or should i just leave it so?Hmm
