Ohio State toasting flutes...

Anybody see them anywhere??? Getting married on game day (ooops) and trying to do a little something for FI to soften the scheduling error blow.

    Aww, that's cute!  I am also trying to find something to do to include the Buckeyes in our special day, cause they are everywhere else ;).  I've been to a wedding where they had Brutus at the reception.  It was great and the groom loved it, not sure about how to set it up though.

    Though we are a summer wedding.. we are total OSU fans... so My DJ gave us a great idea... we are going to have the guys go out for the garter toss w/ that OSU song talking about mich... or hang on sloopy or something... then I found this great idea I had saved on my computer for a DIY OSU garter... this came from a knottie i think... the picture wouldn't copy, but i can eml if you want... below is what i had saved for instructions.. it came from someone named "thecheshirekat" I think bcs the corner of the pic says that.. of course you can make any size you want...  good luck! and go Buckeyes!  I made this garter from scratch using ribbon, lace, 1" wide elastic, and an Ohio State charm from Ebay.  Here's the steps (sorry, I didn't take pictures!):1.  I measured everything so it went around my leg almost twice (to leave space for gathering).2.  I took one length of the 1.5" wide red satin ribbon and sewed the 5/8" gray satin ribbon on top of it to make a stripe.3.  I sewed the lace inside two layers of the red satin ribbon (the one with the stripe, and another layer on the inside without a gray stripe).  The lace was already gathered a little, so I just sewed it straight and made sure there was a pocket between the layers of ribbon for the elastic.4.  I threaded the 1" wide elastic through the pocket, measured and stitched it into a band, then sewed the pocket shut around it.5.  I looped up a bunch of think red and silver ribbon and tacked it down with a couple of stitches.6.  I sewed the charm down in the middle of the thin looped ribbon on the front.  Done!

    We got married on game day too, but not a major game. We did buckeye candies for our favors! Anyways, there is a store in Hudson called Uniquely Ohio that carries those from time to time. Cute store http://www.uniquelyohio.com/

    If you can't find the OSU toasting flutes, you could decorate a plain pair of flutes. Make what would essentially be 'wine charms' if you can find an OSU charm. Attach to a piece of wire and decorate w/ gray/scarlet beads alongside the charm. To differentiate the glasses, one could have, say, gray-gray-scarlet-gray-gray, etc. bead pattern and the other could have scarlet-scarlet-gray-scarlet-scarlet, etc. That way they wouldn't be completely identical.

    Thanks ladies! I knew you girls would have some great ideas. In fact, FI use to make fun of me for asking you all stuff, now he is saying ask away! Someone should know! Ha, I love it.
