DIY Paper Banner.

2015-11-14 07.51.59He’s always this excited! My friend Meris made this super cute banner that we can use for my bachelorette party and wedding shower. She made it look easy but I promise you that it does take a bit of time and care – in the end, it is worth it.

2015-11-14 07.18.02(We were going to cut out letters from glitter paper but found this awesome sticker letters. This is the way to go!)

2015-11-14 07.18.08(She cut out the purple flags first and stuck the letters on them. Then measured out the brown paper which was a slightly larger flag. Once she pasted those together she made one small hole in each of the top corners. Tulle was used to tie them together)

So clever and cute, I just adore this banner!

DIY Wedding Table Numbers

2015-11-14 08.17.50This weekend a couple of friends and I made these awesome table numbers for my wedding. We cooked up this idea as we were shopping at Michaels! What you’ll need:

  • Open wooden boxes
  • Wooden numbers
  • Rose gold pray paint
  • Rose gold glitter
  • craft glue
  • hot glue
  • fake flowers, moss, etc

2015-11-14 04.37.26(Spray the boxes and let them dry)

2015-11-14 04.42.59(You could choose any color but I love rose gold so we went in that direction)

2015-11-14 04.43.08(Spray the numbers – both sides)

2015-11-14 06.57.25(Once dry, apply craft glue to the numbers)

2015-11-14 06.57.47(Dip in glitter immediately)

2015-11-14 06.57.50(Don’t you love that sparkle?)

2015-11-14 07.10.23(Warning: You will be covered in glitter)

2015-11-14 08.06.11(Get your supplies in order)

2015-11-14 08.17.41(Hot glue the glittered number to the inside of the box)

2015-11-14 08.17.37(Begin to decorate)

2015-11-14 08.17.32(This is the fun part!)

2015-11-14 08.36.04(Use the hot glue to set things in place)

2015-11-14 08.36.22(Get creative with how you present them- we will use books)

There you have it! They take a while but they really shimmer! I’m very happy with how they turned out and can’t wait to use them soon!

Wedding Wear Part One.

It’s Summer and that always means one thing, weddings. Brittany recently got some great dresses from Charlotte Russe and thought they would be great to wear at some upcoming weddings. I couldn’t agree more!

Wedding1

(Dress from Charlotte Russe)

Wedding2

(Blue and tan are great wedding colors, pretty much color but white and black)

Wedding3(The zipper details is one of my favorite parts of the dress)

Wedding4

Wedding5(A bold nail color adds to the Summer feel)

Wedding6(Open toed shoes are a must at warm weddings)

Wedding7(We opted for no necklace, instead a geometric earring)

We love dressing up for any occasion but weddings are the most fun, just make sure you put something on that you can dance in!
