Theme Thursday: Vintage French Inspired

| Inspiration, Theme, Wedding Ideas

Today’s theme is inspired by French pinks and grays with a vintage feel.

I’ve never been to Paris, but I’d love to travel to Europe someday just to experience the lovliness and snap photos along the way.

For this theme, black and white accents with swoops, swirls and lace are perfection. A pale pink dress paired with Chanel wedding shoes is to die for.

Customized pink lemonade bottles as favors would be super adorable.

Oh, and I have a big announcement coming on the blog later today! Make sure to check back for the details.

Theme Thursday: Love Letters

| Inspiration, Theme, Wedding Ideas

 As I was putting this theme together I realized that this is a very Valentine’s Day focused theme… oops! I’m about a month early but oh well.


A Love Letter themed wedding would be absolutely gorgeous – with hand written invitations, lots of lace and pops of coral and red you can’t go wrong.


So intimate and romantic. And those Valentino shoes are stunning!
My favorite part about this theme is the color palate.


Sometimes red can be a hard/harsh color, but not in this sense.


Paired with coral, creams and browns it is really toned down and becomes a stunning accent. Yes?


What do you like best about this theme?  Write it in the comments below.

Just an FYI – I’m partnering with my friend Tracy Matthews who creates custom wedding jewelry in NYC, and she’d offering the first 5 people to contact her a 10% discount, which is amazing.
Seriously though – Charlize Theron and some of the American Idols have been seen wearing her stuff.. she’s good.

Theme Thursday: Vintage Gothic

| Inspiration, Wedding Ideas

I am so excited about today’s post because it’s not a theme that I just dreamt up, it’s a friend’s wedding vision.

So much more fun to create an inspiration board with a purpose. 

I’m loving this theme because it’s dramatic and vintage and absolutely lovely.

The black and white details with a pop of deep red create such a gorgeous color palate.

And vintage lace is my favorite. 

Gorgeous, right?

What’s your favorite part?

DIY: Vintage Garland


I’ve been seeing this around the wedding blogs lately and had to try it.

This vintage looking paper and fabric garland has a Anthropologie feel to it, which must be why I like it so much!

I love the creams, beiges and whites for this, but it would look just as cute with pops of color and pattern.

I just made a smaller garland – you’ll most likely be making one to fit your own space so I didn’t include amounts on any of the items you’ll need. The fuller looking the garland, the better though.

Here’s what to you’ll need:

cloth – any color/pattern you choose

cupcake liners – I used kraft colored liners, both a smaller size and a larger size

lace – I found some at a flea market, you don’t need too much



white velum paper

white thread or fishing line

a needle


Here’s what you’ll do:

1. Cut the fabric, lace, burlap, tulle and paper into circles. You will want to make some big and some smaller.

2. Take some cupcake liners out of the box and flatten them. Then, take the liners and paper and lightly crumple them up. This will give your garland a little bit of volume.

3. Cut a piece of thread or string to the length you desire. Next, tie 3 or 4 knots 1 foot in from one of the ends. Make sure you make a big enough knot to keep the pieces of the garland on the string. Then, thread a needle on the other end of the string.

4. Beginning with a small velum paper circle, start adding the pieces of the garland onto the string with the needle. Make sure you use about half of the smaller circles you cut out before you add the larger circles for a tapered effect.

5. Once you have added all of the larger pieces, finish by adding the rest of the smaller circles –  ending with a circle of velum paper. When all of the circles have been added, remove the needed and tie 3 or 4 knots in the string to keep the circles on the string. Make sure to leave 1 foot of string on this end of the garland as well.

6. Hold up your garland. If you want more volume to it, you can crumple up the paper and cupcake liners a little bit more.


There you have it! Your very own vintage looking garland to add the perfect hint of girliness to your event.

Anthropologie Obsessed.

| Inspiration

I can’t help it.

Every time I pass an Anthropologie (which isn’t often, I live in the middle of nowhere), I get giddy. 

The colors, patterns and textures get me every time. I can’t walk out of there without buying SOMETHING.

I was visiting my sister in Nashville a few months back when I realized why I get this way.

I walk into Anthropologie and I’m inspired.

Everything has a handmade, vintage or girly feeling to it, and I instantly want to be wearing every article of clothing in sight.

The displays look like they are made from vintage furniture and the window displays are perfectly crafted.

I want every aspect of my life to look like this 🙂

Anthropologie gives me the motivation to go home and work on a project I’ve been putting off

and gives me ideas for vintage or girly style weddings.

It gives me reassurance that I know who and I am and what I am going to accomplish.

Here are some lovlies for you:

Do any stores inspire you?
