IDEAS FOR YARN WEDDINGS
To continue celebrating the twelve-year anniversary of marriage in a special way, the couple’s home can be decorated using silk so that its softness, shine and consistency is present on a day when there is so much to commemorate.
In the case of celebrating a romantic meal or dinner, the tablecloth, the table runner and the napkins can be made of thread and become a special element to use only at times like this.
But it doesn’t have to stop there… You can also buy silk covers for the cushions with motifs that are special for the couple, how about something related to the honeymoon trip? And this idea is also applicable to the curtains in the house.
Another option is to place a silk rug where the couple will be. They can give it an intimate touch by lowering the lights, placing candles and walking barefoot to feel the softness and firmness of this material, as if they are stepping on the path they have woven together.
Using tissue paper you can make crafts in the form of flowers or pompoms with which to create small garlands that decorate the house. If the flowers are glued on straws or wooden toothpicks, a bouquet of silk flowers can be made that will perfectly serve to decorate the lunch or dinner table.
