I found these skeletons at Party City last week. It seemed wrong to buy just one, so I bought two. And because anniversaries and weddings are on my mind this month in addition to Halloween, I decided to turn these skeletons into a bride and groom to hang on our door. They really do look quite happy, don’t they?
Today I found some similar skeletons already dressed as a bride and groom at Michaels. But these home-fashioned ones are so much better. I bought a spool of 5″ wide tulle to make some fascinators for the royal wedding a couple of years ago; that was the perfect thing for the bridal dress and veil. I fashioned a piece of black grosgrain ribbon into a bow tie for the groom. My local cake decorating shop provided the small silver flowers used for the bride’s headpiece, gown shoulder embellishment and bouquet; it also provided the groom’s top hat and cane. Do I ever love poking around the bins at that shop. Here’s to the bride and groom!
