01020304 | 05 | 06

because i’m now a wedding monster — all i want to do is stop this boring planning stuff and move onto the fun stuff! the design and look of the thing. now that i have almost all of my vendors booked, i can start brainstorming. YAY. i’m definitely DIYing some sort of favors – and right now i’m thinking of custom tote bags full of goodies.

but my big question is : if the guests are getting tote bags in their hotel rooms, do they still need a small favor at the wedding itself? help!

holiday / inspiration / thanksgiving

now that my brain is set on all holiday all the time, i can’t help but only want to look for pretty holiday decorations and diy projects on pinterest. check out how pretty all these projects are.

thanksgiving diy inspiration

one . sending your guests home with a little thank you gift is such a nice gesture, that it could make you feel ok about bogarting all the leftovers for yourself — rosemary sea salt favors by best day ever (via poppytalk)

two . these simple and totally customizable place settings using feathers and herbs are so gorgeous and modern — by kara roselund

three . our rosemary is the only herb that survived the season change, so i was thinking of incorporating some into a place setting, until i saw these rosemary wreath napkin rings and place settings by spoon fork bacon. perfect and simple.

four . neutral and simple goes a long way when you’re doing your holiday table. some cinnamon, herbs and twine will make your table stand out — perfect place settings by vintage house

five . using washi tape and paper clips, you can make your own feather place cards perfect for thanksgiving — by a fabulous fete 

six . my mom and i used to collect pinecones outside for place settings, but some neon paint takes it to the next level — by jennifer rose smith for camille styles

diy headboard roundup

May 29, 2013


yesterday i posted a small roundup of beds. but truth is, i’d never buy any of them besides the ikea ones and i don’t know how to transport one from craigslist.

so now i’ve gathered up some favorite headboard and bedframe DIYs. i LOVE the rendition of the ace hotel headboard by the brick house because we watch all our tv and movies in bed so it’d be so comfy for that, but i’d have to do a no-sew version…

one ace hotel inspired headboard by the brick house
two diy tufted headboard by little green notebook
three wood headboard by one young love
four no-sew upholstered headboard by the kid collective
five an ugly ikea fjellse bed turned soooo good by manhattan nest
