Do you remember before you got married? Do you remember what you thought marriage was like? If you were anything like me you thought it would be non-stop feeding each other grapes, playing board games naked (because you can!), and breakfast in bed. For 50+ years.
Then you realize fairly quickly that you can actually feed yourself grapes better than he can, being naked is completely overrated and breakfast in bed means you're cleaning up a big mess in the kitchen later.
But who am I to disillusion the newlyweds, right? Which is why, for an upcoming wedding (and I'm doing a bridal shower for her on Saturday and can't wait to show you what I've been crafting up for the decorations!) I decided to pretty up an Ikea breakfast-in-bed tray. They can figure all of that other stuff out on their own. :)
So I spied this fun breakfast tray at Ikea for $7.99 and knew it would be so fun to gussy up.
I chose three coordinating scrapbook papers that I liked and what I thought they would like too.
And then I cut the paper to fit in the two cup holders and the trough at the top of the tray. I didn't have a 2.5 inch circle punch for the cup holders but guess what is exactly 2.5 inches! Yes... my Route 44 Sonic cup. My Route 44s help me with crafting a LOT but it's usually indirectly. I'm now adding "crafting supply" to my list of pros for Route 44s. Yay!
Then I got out the ole Mod Podge and mod podged the paper in place! That part is always so much fun.
Then, with my Silhouette and some yellow vinyl, I designed and cut out the "Good Morning, Sunshine!" decal and applied it to the tray. I thought I'd make it a phrase that could be used for their kids as well. And I put it down in the corner so that when there was a plate on the tray it wouldn't be entirely covered up.
It's obviously not dishwasher safe but I think it will withstand an occasional wiping down.
While at Ikea I also picked up these plain white salt & pepper shakers for $2.99.
Using the same color vinyl, I applied some cute decals to them as well to make it all a coordinating set.
Isn't it so bright and cheery?
So maybe feeding each other grapes and hanging around naked are overrated but I guess I wouldn't mind being woken up to this every once in a while. :) I just might make one of these for myself now! For $7.99 plus some paper and Mod Podge, why not?
