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!
Even if you didn’t know what it was called, you will have come across marquee lighting at some point or another, whether it be at a local bar or restaurant, or maybe even at a friend’s wedding, where it’s becoming more and more popular to have large lettering of the bride and groom’s initials displayed. Depending on the style, it can either create a simple and elegant atmosphere or a more laid-back vintage vibe. If you don’t want to fork out a few hundred pounds to buy one, they are readily available to hire for events, or you can find loads of tutorials online to make your own, in fact I will be going back to basics and creating a mini illuminated ‘H & G’ for my wedding next year, so I will be sure to post a how-to guide when I get around to it. For now take some inspiration for the selection below.
H&M are once again stepping up their homewards game and I’ve been looking online at their newest arrivals and trying my best not to buy everything up whilst it’s still available. I find it hard to justify super expensive homeware purchases when my tastes change so frequently, so I find H&M a difficult brand to beat when it comes to chic, affordable home items. Here are a few of my current favourites.
I’m making it one of my top priorities to have a bar cart/drinks trolley in our next home. I love the idea of quickly being able to serve drinks to any guests we might have, as well as it be a stylish way to display drink and it be a focal point of its given room. There are so many pretty ones out there and I look forward to finding the perfect one for our home when the time comes. I’ve seen so much inspiration online when it comes to styling a cart, so I look forward to that too, maybe I’ll do a post about that closer to the time. For now, here are a few carts that have caught my eye.
I feel like my favourite colours vary significantly depending on what aspect of my life we’re discussing. For example, in terms of decorating our home, warm greys would be my first choice, whereas if you look in my wardrobe then blue would probably feature the most – so I’m pretty surprised when a colour makes it onto my radar and makes me want to wear it, decorate with it, feature it in my wedding, etc. This is exactly how I feel about blush. I wouldn’t say I’ve ever been a heavily pink person, but there’s something about this specific shade that I’m absolutely smitten with, and when you mix it with gold then I am just in heaven. It’s made a big appearance in recent years and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon, so I’m just going to keep enjoying it completely, from clothes and accessories to soft furnishings and homeward pieces. Here are a few items that have been catching my eye in this, my current colour obsession.
