This ain't your grandma's embroidery hoop

Is it just me, or are embroidery hoops everywhere, these days? Perhaps most surprising is how awesome they look; I'm really digging the fact that these wooden circles are popping up in the details of many whimsical weddings I've flagged as of late.

Martha featured a DIY guide for the following hanging hoops centerpiece. I really love the look and think it would be the perfect alternative to paper lanterns over the cake table/ candy bar or even above the head table.

The embroidered place cards double as a fun takeaway for guests.

I love the palette and the graphics used in the following shoot; the overall effect is fantastically mod + whimsy. I particularly enjoy the addition of the black and white anemones: so fun.

Modern wedding shoot found here, here, + here.

One cannot post about embroidery hoops without mentioning Miniature Rhino. Jessica's fun shop is a legend on etsy and her work has popped up all over design and wedding sites alike. (Psst... I want one).

Hi Jessica, thanks for stopping by! It's my pleasure - every time I saw embroidery hoops used I was continuously reminded of your shop. : )

Now... to decide which one I would like to order. The knot is my current fave.
