OMG - this backdrop is also the aisle runner. This one looks like song lyrics or a poem of some sort, but how fun would it be with vows, or love notes written to each other, or special memories shared together? Would love for an aisle runner!
Lace lanterns are made by overlapping lace doilies on an inflated balloon and brushing fabric stiffener (or wallpaper glue, or even white glue) onto the doilies. Make sure to cover whole thing with the glue.
