Florence, Italy Inspiration Shoot

29 Jun

Did you see our great hammered spoon tutorial on Elizabeth Anne Designs? We’re so thrilled that they posted it!

But wait, there’s more!

When creating the hammered spoons, we were also finding a lot of inspiration from Florence, Italy, and designed a tablescape around that lovely city!

For the table: gold chargers, olive linens and simple white tableware. All was placed on a lovely silk dupioni tablecloth.

We’d be crazy to leave out the fantastic rustic bread, cheeses and other accoutrement.

Inspiration: A rainbow of vintage typewriters

23 Feb

A vintage typewriter can tie your vintage-style wedding together nicely. And what guest wouldn’t love to type a sweet note to the bride and groom on one of these beautiful typewriters.

Bonus: with a little searching, you can find a typewriter in nearly any color to match your wedding decor.

The veiled truth – how to choose the perfect wedding veil

11 Feb

Choosing the right veil for your wedding can be tricky. The days of only having to choose between a handful of veil-lengths, based on the venue you choose, are long gone.

Now, brides are choosing their wedding veil based on their personality and dress style. Short dresses just scream for short veils or blushers. Long, traditional-style dresses look great with just about any style. Details such as pops of color, gorgeous mantilla lace details and embellishments are all sweet additions.

David’s Bridal has a great resource on veils – if you’re not sure of the right kind for your dress-style, or just want to learn a little before you decide, they offer a pretty solid description of styles and a riduculous selection of styles.

And, OMG, I had NO idea that they have combs and hairflowers – to wear alone or accent your veil (or, as many brides do, swap with the veil after heading down the aisle).

My favorite piece? A sweet Russian netting birdcage veil with a feather-flower embellishment (H7546). So lovely!

We love all the lovely wedding dress embellishments that are in style right now – brooches, sashes, floral details and pops of color make us swoon and wish for a second wedding!

Is it surprising that this custom floral sash from Etsy designer Icing101 catches our eye?
