We also incorporated newspaper in a few ways. First was by making about 70 hand-folded, origami boxes. These boxes were our containers for our salty snacks. Necessity being the mother of invention, they came about because we wouldn't have access to appetizer plates. I think they looked great (and many thanks to Eat Drink Chic for the inspiration, who had similar boxes filled with potato chips at her surprise wedding!).
Another interesting way we used newspaper came about due to necessity as well. On the morning of, we pushed all the tables together to serve the food on, and realized that they mismatched (we used three small tables instead of one large one). We ended up wrapping the tables in newspaper to the floor, and this immediately made them match (and also totally set off the ceiling installation, in my opinion). Also, the genius of my friend and co-host Shannon was to use half English and half Spanish newspapers, since Javi is Mexican.
Congratulations, Lindy and Javi! I can't wait for the wedding!
