& the guests wore white...

I am in love with this idea; I think the end result is fantastic.

Would you ask your wedding guests to dress a certain way or in a certain colour? (I don't see how this differs from a black tie optional affair...)

Psst... see more of this wedding here.


Cinder Block Love

Cinder block centerpieces? Yes, please!

I always look forward to checking out what creatively fabulous spreads Kelly (of yes, please, succulent love, and the newly incorporated bash please) has put together. Many of her tablescapes and design concepts have been flagged in my personal folders; however, this one was too perfect not to share.

Check out Kelly's DIY instructions here.

This gritty industrial block pairs so perfectly with the pretty natural stems, doesn't it?

C'est Magnifique!

Corsages by ban.do

Oversized embellishments are the bee's knees. Suffice it to say, I was instantly smitten with ban.do's new Corsages. They are named after Old Hollywood Starlets and all sorts of beautiful. What one is your favourite? (You can find the rest, here. Bonus: some are even on Sale)!

I'm beginning to realize that corsages are perfect for dressing up everything from simple tees to fancy party frocks. So go on and embellish because it's Wednesday.


Party Staple {bunting}

I'm a fan of the circus-inspired bunting that has made a playful comeback over the past year or so in weddings and parties alike. It adds the perfect touch of fun to a shower, engagement party, or reception.

I'm currently working on bunting of my own for a very exciting Vintage Circus themed shower that I will be hosting on Saturday with this lady to celebrate a special little man.

You'll have to excuse the lack of blog posting these days as I am chin-deep in project work at my 'nine-to-five' and busy-busy cutting triangles and brainstorming all the places I can string this fun decoration after-hours!

On that note, I must say I especially like when it is used to adorn tables, don't you?

P.S. Is today really the 11th of May?! The wheels are in motion to put the final touches on Wine Tour, 2010 with only 10 sleeps to go. More to come... soon!
