Tissue Paper Rosette Centerpieces!

13 Apr

When I first saw this Tissue Rosette Kissing Ball (pictured below), I thought it would be a fun and creative project to do for an upcoming bridal show we were participating in.  Since I work at a rental company, we are sometimes limited as to what we can use as centerpieces on the tables we display.  I always try to make DIY pieces that brides can get ideas from and incorporate into their own weddings (like these button table numbers) and thought the rosette balls would be perfect!

Wedding Wednesday!

11 Apr

One thing I have seen a lot of emphasis on in wedding magazines, blogs, and on Pinterest recently is not just the actual ceremony itself, but more specifically the aisle the bride and her wedding party will walk down.  The walk down the aisle is one of the main focal points of the ceremony besides the actual vows of course, and so the theme of this weeks Wedding Wednesday is all about ways to make your aisle creative and something your guests will remember!

1. Personalized Aisle Runner

I LOVE this idea!!  It so personalized and creative and I love how guests will be able to follow your story as they walk down the aisle to find there seats!

Macy’s Flower Show 2012!

5 Apr

Last Monday I took a short trip down to New York City for work and I was so excited to learn that I would be down there for Macy’s annual Flower Show!  The theme of this year’s show was “Brasil, Gardens in Paradise” and they set up a huge tent on Broadway Plaza where you could walk through on your own or with a tour to see the amazing gardens, floral displays, and even a huge Tucan made entirely of flowers.  I read that one of my favorite event designers, Preston Bailey, had done work for the show but unfortunatly I wasn’t able to see it since he was displaying later on in the tour (The show lasts about 2 weeks!) Besides the tent, all of the window’s down 34th street were done up with flowers and costumes and inside Macy’s they had flowers on display as well.  The entire show was free of charge and it goes all day during store hours.  The one thing I wish I had done was written down some of the types of flowers in the tent because most weren’t marked and now I can’t remember all of the different kinds I saw.  I hope I can make it down there again next year and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys flowers and gardening!

Easter Egg Design!

4 Apr

Is it bad at the age of 23 I still get excited about coloring eggs at Easter? I’m not good at it by any means but I really do enjoy the tradition of  sitting down and decorating some hard boiled eggs that never come out quite as good as I would like them too!  Here are some cool ways to decorate your Easter Eggs this year:

1. Sild Dyed Easter Eggs

I love these eggs, the patterns come out so cool!
