Pink + White Shabby Chic Wedding Style

The star of this lovely Inspired Creations Contest entry from the Syracuse, New York team of Lovewell Celebration DesignAlice G. Patterson Photography, Whistlestop Florist, La Dolce Vita Cakes, and Rebecca’s Bridal Boutique, is the abundance of pretty, spring-hued details. Inspired by a pink faux fur stole, vintage pink glass china and a worn, rustic hutch, the team took a subtle approach to glitter and glam, embracing pretty shades of white, blue, and pink paired with soft fabrics. They worked with pearls, rhinestones, and ribbon to bring in the feminine charm and contrasted it with a simple, timeworn country elegance. To keep things from feeling too formal, they made sure to include fun cakes, bubby drinks, confetti and of course, glitter! The final look is incredibly elegant with a playful touch and impossibly sweet feminine details.

Much love to my wonderful friends for being apart of the Inspired Creations Contest – love you much, ladies! xoxo

DIY Sew in Love Favor

Hi! It’s Jenny from Hank + Hunt again with a cute little favor that is more easy than DIY. Perfect for a crafty bride. Use these cute and simple little treats for a bridal shower or at the big event.

This DIY has a printable for you to iron on, and then it’s just stuffing bags. Easy peasy.

Supplies –
Mending kits (at all craft stores)
Muslin bags – 4×6
Iron-on transfer paper

Pick a size, large or small, and print on transfer paper.

Cut out the hearts, staying close to the edge.

Iron the heart on the bag. Follow the instructions that come with the transfer paper. Helpful hints: Remember to use a thin fabric or pressing cloth (you don’t want it to get on your iron.) Also, top your ironing board with a towel and press really hard as you iron. You can also iron a little less perfectly and get a vintage effect when some of the color pulls off. I really like this look and do it for most of my iron-ons.

Stuff the bag with the mending kit. The mending kits are at any craft or yardage shop and only cost like $2 – $3 dollars. For a little more work, you could make your own.

Tie in a bow, ready to go. Voila! Told ya it was easy! This turns out incredibly cute for how easy it is. I’m sure you could make a ton if you assemble a team of helpers. Enjoy!

Pretty Spring Easter Brunch Inspiration

I remembered this pretty Easter table from Styled and photographer Marie Labbancz featured on Elizabeth Anne Designs last year and thought it’d be fun to share it with you. With fresh lemon cupcakes and cute details like speckled egg candies tucked in little kraft paper bags with gorgeous calligraphy, this spring-infused design is perfect for Easter brunch.

Loving DIY

I know you guys love DIY ideas and inspired craft projects as much as I do, so I thought I’d share a handful of festive and fun DIY inspirations I’ve bookmarked recently. I tend to gravitate toward projects that are budget-friendly, low on the skill level requirement and incorporate fun, every items in unexpected ways. All of these ideas fit the bill and are sure to add a dash of fun to your next celebration.

Keep Calm + Dream On Inspiration Shoot

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you had the loveliest weekend. To kick off the week in fine style, it’s back to sharing the amazing entries from the Inspired Creations Contest. Today’s inspiration shoot comes from the team of Posey & Bloom, Shasta Hankins and Easy Dreamer Photography. Together they envisioned the photos to be like a dream sequence, where things that are seemingly odd together are actually perfectly harmonious. Pretty little details such as balloons, crowns, glitter and wishes were paired with organic-inspired, woodsy elements and quirky papier-mâché mushrooms. I love the playful, dream-inspired feel and the endless imagination this amazing team put to work.
