  • Doey’s Pew Clips are perfect for historic wooden church pews

    October 13th, 2014 CW-Administrator | No Comments »

    Doey's Pew Clips are perfect for historic wooden church pews

    Testimonial shared by a Mother of the Bride: “This is a photo of your Doey’s Pew Clips, used for the flowers at our daughter’s wedding on Saturday. They were firm when clipped on and did not damage the pews. This historic church dates from Norman times (1100) though in those days there would not have been pews, everyone would have stood at the services.”

    Regards, Helen

    My pals at @aeolidia are having a #shopify setup party, and you’re invited! http://aeolidia.com/best-ecommerce-platform. It’s been my dream to have Arianne Folks and her team create a store on shopify for several years now and I’m saving my pennies to make it happen.

    They are amazingly talented and creative and best of all when you find a team you know you can trust to do their best that’s really all that matters.

    Tea Party Idea for a Mother and Daughter garden party

    July 16th, 2014 CW-Administrator | No Comments »

    Extra special mother daughter tea party tea cup cupcake wraps and tea party decorations. Diy kit by Cathyswraps

    Sister’s Laura and Alisa sent this picture of a beautiful garden table setting they created for a mother daughter tea party. I hope it provides inspiration for your next tea party. Laura writes, Thank you so much for the tea cup wraps. They made our mother/daughter tea party extra special!” Photo by Alisa Duenas Photography.

    These tea cups are a fun diy project. It requires bending the scallop feet and giving the tea cup handles a little curl before attaching with a spot of hot glue. I like to mix and match the patterns and colors for a whimsical touch.

    My special grease proof paper may be wiped clean and used again. If you have children, add a baking liner to fill with small treats (mine like mini marshmallows) for “pretend” tea parties.

    Enjoy! Cathy

    Insanely easy tissue paper flower pom pew decorations! One of the easiest ways to affix big beautiful tissue paper flower pom poms to flat panel church pews is with Doey’s Church Pew Clip. Doey’s sturdy pew clip is more affordable than ribbon and allows your tissue paper flowers to be visible for guests to enjoy as well.

    Tissue paper flower pom poms hang from church pews with Doey's Church Pew Clip This sturdy flexible church pew clip is a favorite of churches and florists.

    Things you’ll need:

    2 Rubber bands
    Doey’s sturdy plastic Pew Clip

    Step 1: Fluff your flower poms and attach each pom to Doey’s pew clip with a rubber band placing the larger pom towards the center aisle. If using ready-made flower poms, replace metal closures with the loosely wound rubber band to avoid scratching the pews.

    Lavender chevron baby shower centerpiece!

    November 27th, 2013 CW-Administrator | No Comments »

    Carolyn made this pretty practical centerpiece for her daughters baby shower. Such a cute idea and I loved learning how her daughter reused them in the nursery.

    “Hi Cathy.  I just wanted to tell you that I received the lavender chevron pots and I LOVE them.  I made the first arrangement last night and it is really cute. They are just what I was looking for! Also, LOVE the flower toppers with Alaina on them. Those are so perfect and added just an extra touch to the arrangement. I am SO pleased with my purchase.

    Post baby shower . . . We had my daughter’s Baby “Sprinkle” this weekend. It was wonderful and she loved my baby bouquets. I do not have a crafty bone in my body so I am pretty proud of these.

    I made them with onesies, wash cloths and socks. The socks were the hardest ones to make.  She has already torn them apart as she wanted the clothes and stuff.  However, she will keep one of the pots for pacifiers and she wants me to make a little flower arrangement in the big one.  No idea how that will turn out!  So, they will get good use in the nursery.

    Thanks again, the pots were perfect!”

    This new large Chevron Pattern vase is available in a variety of colors in my etsy shop.

    Bridal shower centerpiece idea

    February 7th, 2013 CW-Administrator | No Comments »

    Take a peek at our cute bridal shower centerpieces & tea cup wraps!

    Emily made these fun bridal shower centerpieces using silk flowers. To add a personal touch she tucked in coordinating custom flower toppers with the bride and grooms initials.

    How to replicate the look: The flowers were arranged in our original cathyswraps plastic pots and color coordinated sleeves. The brides colors were pink and green, so, Emily choose a mix of the pink polka dot and damask and pink & green polka dot decorative sleeves. She found silk flowers at Hobby Lobby and arranged them in ‘dry’ floral foam trimmed to fit our pots. The bride received a keepsake arrangement and the others will be used again for future events. Since her theme was a tea party she dressed home baked cupcakes in our mix & match cupcake wraps adding an optional diy tea cup handle with hot glue to make tea cup cupcakes!

    It was fun to help Emily on create this custom bridal shower! She writes, “I want to thank you for the adorable wraps, sticks and cupcake picks! They turned out great and the shower was such fun!” Emily

    Thanks for sharing Emily, I’m sure Erin loved your thoughtfulness!

    Wedding Aisle to Reception Decorations

    October 29th, 2012 CW-Administrator | No Comments »

    Here’s an example of how Sharon used cathyswraps vases as Wedding Aisle to Reception Decorations. “My niece wanted a vineyard wedding with shepherd hooks along the aisle, so I started looking. I’m so glad I found your website because it was the absolute best we had seen within ‘my’ budget.

    CathysWraps flower vases & affordable centerpieces

    I added the ribbons and the florist at The Flower Shop at 8536 Madison Ave, Fair Oaks, CA 95628 came up with the flowers. We wanted something red and not too airy, so these turned out perfect.

    CathysWraps flower vases for bridal and baby shower decoration a

    We loved the ‘Wedding Aisle to Reception’ concept and took them inside and set them around the bridal table after the ceremony. The bridal table was quite elegant and they added the extra color we needed around the edges. We had one long table and two round ones at the ends of it and I put all of these 10 arrangements on the outside of the circular rounds.

    They are so easy and lovely. I will always recommend your site to anyone that is a bit creative and wants a lovely unique pot.

    You are so kind and give a personal approach….”
    Hugs, Sharon
