Insert the word mini in front of anything and I love it! Brilliant idea from Hello Hanna – cupcake or sweet stands made out of embossed recycled paper will look adorable as a wedding centerpiece or part of a yummy dessert table. Sold in sets of 6, ready as is or flair it up with more pretties. Purchase at Hello Hanna link above.
A random yet lovely catalog came into my mailbox today. A perfect lunch break read :) Specializing in recycled home decor, At West End had some super cute outdoor decor. Not everything was my cup of tea, but the items above would be perfect for a wedding!! So let’s continue the reuse, recycle, reduce path into 2011!
So fresh and so clean in design. Love the idea and the colors! How cute would these be at a dessert table or used as props for an engagement session?! Yup, seed implanted in your head ;) Totally digging the creative and drool-worthy light of the photos! I see this hitting the wedding trend in 2010 and 2011! (I wish their ‘making images’ link was working to see the behind the scenes, hint hint!)
While running around yesterday, I over heard a conversation between a mother and son on the bus. She was planning his birthday party and was just trying to locate balloon lights. I thought ‘interesting, good thing I eavesdropped!’ The balloon prop trend in engagement and wedding photos is everywhere so why not light things up with this new twist! Added bonus: battery powered and inflatable! I’d love to try it out, hint hint! More purchase info at link above.
The fall 2010 Bridal Market show had some amazing wedding fashions! One of my favs…Melissa Sweet’s Boho Chic Reverie collection featured an amazing straw fedora hat with pretty details. Perfect for a sunny, outdoor ultra low key wedding or that hip short dress. More pics at the link above.

I’m in LOVE, so simple so elegant! The perfect post for Earth Day this week. This just proves what a little elbow grease and environmental consciousness will do for your wedding centerpiece. Kelly – you go girl! Find the full post at 100 Layer Cake link above.
Better known as ‘chair personality socks’! Chairs have been decorated in many ways; covers, hanging floral, tags, signs but never socks! Interesting trend for your wedding reception or ceremony but hey, whatever floats your boat! I have to admit, digging the navy and red stripe. Find them in various styles at the link above.
Eeek of cuteness! I love it when textures combine and form greatness! The patterned fabric trend has grown to be a huge favorite in the wedding decor world aka tablecloths. But fabric sleeves for invitations?!?! I love it so much, I need to sit down. See more here.
I’m definitely not the traditional wedding type. We know that the garter wedding trend isn’t necessarily followed through these days. But these couture garters (designed by Claire) might change some of your minds! Vintage and modern combine to create a feminine whimsy. You have to check out all her handmade designs here. Btw, how adorable is the name Florrie Mitton!?!?
Goodness gracious! So simple and yet so genius! A lovely way to spruce up your clear bottles and jars while maintaining a polished look. (if you’re anything like me sometimes those diy projects look a little too ‘diy’…but you can’t go wrong with this method!). A fab wedding centerpiece arrangement, I think so. Links above for instructions.
