Custom cocktail Napkins

August 28, 2015

Regardless of the celebration, it’s always a lovely touch to personalize certain aspects of your event, maybe with names or dates, and so a small but effective way of doing this could be to create custom napkins for your guests to use while eating. It’s an inexpensive way to add a bit of your style and personality to an occasion without being too in-your-face. You can find many companies that offer this service online but my particular favourite is For Your Party as they allow you to customize every aspect of your napkin using their online editor, meaning you can match it exactly to your chosen colour scheme. I’m definitely going to be putting in an order for my wedding next year!

Wedding colour scheme

August 26, 2015

Having sorted out most of the major decisions in relation to my wedding next year, including the venue, caterers, photographer and cake, I’m now starting to think of ideas of how to prettify the venue to make it look as beautiful as possible. Having already chosen pink bridesmaid dresses, I thought it would be a good idea to extend the colour scheme to include other pastel shades such as baby blue and lilac, and I managed to find lots of lovely goodies that will fit in perfectly.

I managed to pick up three woven baskets in my chosen hues, and will probably use these during the ceremony and reception to hold homemade confetti, maybe cards from our guests and perhaps extra goodies for our guests. I’m in the process of making my own confetti using flowers that are just about to wilt; you dry them out as quickly as possible and they keep their vibrant colour beautifully.

As well as creating some of my own DIY projects, I have also bought a few extra ready-made details to hang. I plan on painting various sized mason jars using chalk paint, to fill with flowers and use as centrepieces on the round tables. In the run up to the big day, I will be posting how-to guides for anything I make so keep checking back.

More of My Favourite Instagram Accounts

August 25, 2015

A couple of months ago, I shared six of my favourite Instagram accounts, but as I follow about 500 of them it really wasn’t many at all. So I thought I’d share some more of those I love, in case you want to add plenty more pretty to your own feed. There’s a lovely, random mix here, so there should be something for everyone.

Opal Nails

August 24, 2015

I’m a big fan of pastel colours and because of that I love the gemstone opal, as it contains an array of rainbow shades that shimmer beautifully in the light. It’s a great effect to add to nails as it can be done with a marbling of pinks, purples, blues and greens or can be achieved with an iridescent glitter polish, with added embellishments to add depth and detail.

Meet the Blogger 2

We’re so excited that we’ve just booked to attend our first bloggers conference in October – and it’s in Amsterdam of all places! Neither of us have been there before, so we can’t wait to explore the city and see what it has to offer, as well as attend this awesome event. We’ve made it into a long weekend trip, so we’re heading out on Friday, 2nd October and come back on Monday, 5th October, and we hope to learn so much from like-minded people whilst we’re there. The wonderful Elsie & Emma from A Beautiful Mess are keynote speakers, so we’re looking forward to hearing what pearls of wisdom they have for everybody and we also hope to meet as many fellow bloggers as we can. We’re really excited and will hopefully feed back to you on our first conference experience when the time comes.
