Wedding Day News Paper

In reading hundreds of wedding blog posts a week, even 2+ years after our wedding, there are ideas that I have seen that I wish were around/blogged about before we got married.
One such idea would be to snag a copy of the city newspaper on the day of your wedding. Sure, you'll shove it in a box of some sort along with left over wedding programs and monogrammed cocktail napkins, but one day it might be neat to show it to your kids. Just another memento from {one of} the best day of your life.

Winter Chic Table Setting

I know that it's the almost the end of Spring here in Ohio, but I also know that there are some of you out there searching for winter wedding inspiration. I just love this holiday tablescape that was put together for a styled shoot {see vendor list below}. The {stunning} arrangements of all white flowers are grouped together by flower type featuring anemones, ranunculus and tulips. You'll want to consider the seasonality of the flower that you are hoping to use. Roses, orchids, daisies and carnations are other flowers that are always available in the winter.
Christmas tree ornaments are used here as centerpieces in apothecary jars, flocking the flower arrangements and serving as individual place setting decorations. Wouldn't you agree that the ornaments are used here without looking too "Christmas-y"? Winter chic might be a more appropriate way to describe this table setting. However, as much as I do love this table setting, I am more ready for summer than winter!

Memorial Day Getaway

Oh hi friends! I'm slowly getting back to blogging here & there. But first, it's time for a little get away to the lake for Memorial Day weekend to kick off summer.
Hoping that you & yours get to enjoy a little r&r this weekend {& a few skinny girl margaritas-have you had one!? delicious!}. Any of you attending a wedding this weekend? I hope it's on a lakeside estate and filled with lovely little details!

p.s. I post a little more often on my personal blog, lucky knot. Come & say hello!

Pink & Purple Flowers

There's a little part of me that has a strong desire to become a floral designer. There's something about a beautiful freshly put together bouquet that makes me so happy.

I am loving the different textures in this bouquet. I have no idea what the various leaves, berries and flowers are called. All I know is that they comprise a stunning bouquet.

Wouldn't this make a stunning arrangement for a bridal shower? But, then again, you wouldn't want to upstage the bride-to-be!

Hi there my little bloggity blog friends! It's come to my attention that many, if not all of the pictures from 2009-2007 that I have posted on this blog are no longer visible. I will be working on this issue in the days and weeks to come and hope to have all of the pretty pictures back for you to see. xoxo.
