Perfect Pink Wedding Pallet

 When I think of Summer one of the first colors I think of is bright vibrant pink. Pink can be one of the most beautiful color pallets, when it is combined with various shades of pink and a dark brown contrast. Here the use of peonies and roses add texture and color to the flowers. I love how the wedding dress has a flower embellish that mimics the peonies in the bouquet. I am also a huge fan of cupcakes at weddings and these are amazingly beautiful!

DIY Garland



I have to say that I am not a huge fan of garland. I think you have to be careful because it can be overdone really easily. That is why I was so surprised when I fell in love with this garland idea from Once Wed. I think this would make a unique escort card display or the birds could be omitted or changed to a totally different design. I love the versatility of this project!

What You’ll Need:


One Bunch “Million Star” Gypsophilia (AKA Baby’s Breath) Generally, a bunch is 10 – 12 stems, with multiple laterals on each stem)


One Spool Fabric Coated Wire


Decorative Paper (3 or so coordinating sheets)




A Sheet of Card Stock


Floral Snips




Small Hole Punch




Computer and Printer


Resources: Gypsophelia is a very common flower and available through any floral wholesale house, flower shop, or grocery store florist.  There are many on-line resources as well.    Fabric coated wire is available in the floral section of your craft store.


Before you get started on the garland,  unwrap your bunch of Gypsophelia, trim the stems and place in warm water.    Allow the flowers to drink for a couple of hours before proceeding.


1.  Take your floral clippers, and trim all of the flower tufts off the end of the sprays, leaving just a little stem.  (see figure 1)


2.  Cut a 7 foot length of fabric coated wire.    Twist the end of the wire to make a little loop at the end.


3.  Take a tuft of Baby’s Breath, and lay it on your support wire, just past the loop.   Pick up your wire spool, and wrap the wire around the flower stem and support wire.   (see figure 2)


4.  Add another tuft, this time to the back side of the wire, and wrap again.


5.  Keep adding the flower tufts, alternating front and back, and work your way down the wire. (see figure 3)


6.  When you reach the end of the wire, cut the spool away  and wrap the wire around the garland end several times to secure.  Make a loop on the end with your support wire.  Trim your flower stems to make the end of the garland tidy.  (see figure 4)


To keep your garland fresh, coil it up, mist it lightly with water, and place it inside a plastic garbage bag.  Put it in your refrigerator, or in the coolest spot available.   It should stay fresh for 24-48 hours depending where you keep it.


7.  Print out the bird template(see below) on a sheet of  card stock.   Cut out the birds, and trace them onto your decorative paper. ( I used 10 pairs for a six foot garland)


8.   Cut all of your birds out, and punch a small hole in the middle of each bird’s back.  (see figure 5)


9.  Cut a length of string about 14 inches long, and tie a bird to each end. (see figure 6)


10.  Hang your garland from the wire loop ends and hang your birds over the garland, spacing them evenly apart. (see figure 7)


What it Cost:  (to make one six foot garland)


1 bunch of Baby’s  Breath = $8.50 (from a wholesale florist)


3 Sheets of Paper = $1.80


Spool of Fabric Coated Wire = $2


String = $1.50

Tis The Season

As I was going through the store today I found myself humming along to a little tune. As I started paying more attention it was a Christmas song. I also noticed that all of the Halloween items are out of the way and in their place is items for the holidays. So…I decided to join the madness today and to show you a winter themed wedding. I think my favorite part of this inspiration board is the cute little save the date sweater. It is just too cute!

Fall Colors

Having a fall wedding doesn’t have to incorporate a rustic theme complete with pumpkins and haystacks. A simple use of the fall color pallet opens the doors to an elegant and beautiful wedding. The colors of fall are bold and vibrant, which is the perfect match for a luxurious and romantic wedding feel. I know I continually talk about paying attention to the details of your wedding but it is super important! I think this is especially true for this inspiration board. The fall hues are displayed in every aspect of the wedding right down to the soup and the dessert. Everything goes together and everything flows. I think my absolute favorite thing is the chocolate wedding menus! They serve double duty as a menu and the favor. They also cut down on the paper used in the wedding and make a yummy treat. No one is going to throw this menu away!

Bold colors and fall leaves are the inspiration for this beautiful wedding inspiration board. Imagine… beautiful luminaries lining the edge of the dock, while the the glow reflects beautifully on your ceremony. You can toss beautiful autumn leaves in lieu of the traditional bird seed. Escort cards attached to barrels of hay add a rustic touch with a great seasonal feel.
