Buttons Galore Teams Up with Sharpie for Weddings!

Hello all!  Buttons Galore and More has teamed up with Sharpie to bring you a ton of ideas for WEDDINGS!  *sigh*

Craft supply polished river rocks

My project would make a sweet table centerpiece.  A simple white tray holds buttons in the wedding color (in the case, pink) and nestled among the buttons are river rocks with words written on them to spell out lyrics to familiar love songs.  Simple, easy and oh so sweet!

You could also challenge your guests to sorting and building the lyrics themselves while they wait for newlyweds to finish taking photos, etc.  A centerpiece with rocks and buttons is so satisfyingly tactile and fun for all ages.  You could even ask your guests to write a one word wish for the newlyweds for them to take home as a keepsake.  The possibilities are endless. 
Great for a garden-themed wedding too!

Oil-based paint markers are perfect for writing on slick surfaces and durable too!  I hope you have enjoyed this project.  For more great wedding ideas with buttons and Sharpies, please visit the Buttons Galore and More blog for links to all of the designers participating.  Thanks for stopping by!

This is such a unique idea! I love that the guests can make their own poetry. You could also put cameras on the tables, so they can photograph their poems and then the newlyweds would have a record of it.
