Lately, I’ve been craving another camping trip so that I can sit outside in the warm breeze and read the million books that I’ve borrowed and have yet to read/finish. So this could have sparked my new obsession with enamel coffee mugs…in love with the vintage white and tin! These colors do just fine too ;) Wouldn’t these be cute at a wedding?! Guests could drink hot chocolate or stuff them with flowers or how about hanging them from trees? Ideas are endless.
Call it an Xmas present to myself! How was everyone’s holiday? I need a holiday from the holidays, yay for NYE! While out shopping for marketing crafts, I saw these adorable lights hanging from a store called New Asian Style in San Francisco’s Fillmore District. Fell.in.love.

You can find pinecones just about anywhere! The dark brown tones really compliment the hot new color for weddings, purple! Pinecone Place Card & Pinecone Hurricane Vase
I wanted to share a few of my favorite lighting crafts for wedding decor in the fall. If you know anything about photography, you know that it’s about the use of light. It’s important to have a balance of light in your ceremony and reception venues so that the photographer can technically capture your moments but also photograph the feeling. Nothing sets the mood like candlelight! These 2 ideas are super inexpensive and provide that unique fall touch. Autumn Illuminated & Cornhusk Votives.
