Wedding Wednesday…Winter Wedding Details!

 

teWinter is coming….which means cold weather, snow and ice BUT it also means super festive decor, lights and flannel.  If you’re hosting a winter wedding or event I love the idea of implimenting holiday themed details into your design but let’s be honest it can get pretty cheesy fast!  I pulled some of my favorite winter details that would add that special touch to your event.  I have to be honest, the vintage glass ornaments are my absolute favorite. The different shapes and muted colors keep it chic opposed to overly festive. I also adore the chairs covered in cozy knit throws, the texture it brings to the design is perfection.  Lastly, the trees! Do you remember being in school and on Earth Day they’d pass out baby trees you were supposed to plant???? Easily one of my top 5 favorite days of the year. This favor/escort card idea kind of captured that feeling for me and I was sold.  Not only are you bringing a little of the organic into your wedding but you’re promoting  planting new trees….two birds one stone, what’s better than that? Maybe just cover the green container in linen or a fabric that fits your design and possibly have a calligrapher write your guests names? Swooncentral.

Inspiration from Anywhere…Last Minute Halloween Party Ideas!

I LOVE Halloween but what I don’t love is things that scare me and noodles that are supposed to be worms, so needless to say my version of a Halloween party is gore free and full of Happy Halloween pretty. Quickly back away from the frightening props and run towards a soft palette of grey, black, peach and metallics. Instead of a red punch full of eye ball ice cubes (ugh I want to cry), how about a cocktail rimmed in cinnamon with a DIY metallic gold spider??? You can totally class up this holiday and still have a Boo-riffic time.

Happy Halloween!!!

With fall here I can’t really let my hair air dry now! { I will catch a cold as my father always says!}  So I’m in search for some fun hair styles! Here are a few hair styles that are a must for this fall! I’m loving all of them.

Inspiration from Anywhere…DIY Pumpkins!

There is NOTHING I don’t love about fall but something I especially love  about it is pumpkins. I am THAT girl, I adore everything and anything pumpkin.  The minute SBUCKS releases pumpkin spice lattes my car literally makes a bee line for the closest sbucks, I order one and quickly take an instagram of it, letting everyone I know they are here! It’s a similar routine the second anywhere around me starts carrying these orange beauties but in this instance I have to kick it up a notch. They can’t just stay orange, they way nature intended, I have to paint, bedazzle, carve and foil them.  One year, I sat at my dining room table pinning sequins on the ENTIRE pumpkin…one by one (I have to have some sort of DIY mental illness) the next year I painted my pumpkins different shades/patterns of rose gold, grey and added metallic studs on one. Everyone was impressed but everyone also wondered what was wrong with me.  I haven’t planned out my pumpkin DIY game for this year yet but I sure have started out with some top notch inspiration.
