Jamaligarden.com has a wide range of tools, detailing, and vases. The prices are reasonable, and the peace of mind you'll have knowing your time spent on your own table decor is well worth it.
Items on the website include: candles, baskets, bamboo, willow, stones, runners, ceramic pottery, ribbon, and sea shells.

With some help from my dear friend Jenny, and her cute pup Boston, we created the look with Photoshop to adjust the opacity and layer the words. It only took an hour or so, a couple of tummy rubs for the support during the creation process, and VOILA! Save the Dates.

Shoes from Gap.com, and Piperlime.com:
No big surprise... I love this store. I put quarters in the meter to manage my time in the store or I might spend hours browsing the endless opportunities in paper. The staff is helpful, and knowledgeable. They knew the different paper weights, mailing information, and details for DIY.
While there, I settled on the color combination I will be using for my own invitations. They will be: Gravel, Moss, and Luxe White. The ink colors will mimic the Gravel, and I'll add Eggplant graphics to tie in the complete color scheme. The Luxe White is a high quality paper that allows for easy ink jet printing. While I won't be using it for my wedding invites, I was quite taken by their Blush color... I thought it quite fitting[wink].
Just a heads up... the colors from the website do the actual paper no justice. I suggest visiting the store to see for yourself. The Paper Source is on 31st and Hennepin in Uptown.
