This morning I saw this bright turquoise fish vase¬†& thought he would make quite an interesting centerpiece on beach wedding reception tables, or even on buffets or near the guestbook.
At $39, he offers¬†tremendous value and room for creativity, especially considering what you can spend on just one floral centerpiece.
The stylists from At West End added some curly red branches; aqua & red wedding schemes are always bold and photogenic.
Alternatively, I can see yellow, orange or white (my favorite color) arrangements of some sort. The company also has a best-selling glazed blue mermaid vase ($65) if you wanted to mix it up with a combination of the two.¬†The lower, U-shaped fish vase adds a third option.
Add a few strands of their whitewash driftwood garland and you’re nearly done. Or find real treasures from the sea on a beach vacation and re-purpose them for your wedding decor. Serious DIYers only, of course. (That would be well beyond my talents…) Happy beach combing!
Yes, wedding planning can get a little overly detailed at times. I mean, how many granular details do you really need to handle? And how important will they be to the overall outcome of your amazing big day?
In general, I tend to believe in keeping it simple. That less is more¬†when you focus on a just¬†few big details that speak to your hearts.
That said, I’m guilty of showcasing a detail here that literally takes the cake as far as details go. If you¬†haven’t already¬†considered the utensils for your first newlywed dessert, let’s get right down to this adorable set of wedding cake forks.
Each mis-matched vintage dessert¬†fork is a hand-stamped keepsake, ready to go from wedding cake to anniversary and many other sweet occasions. Just $41 for the pair, from jessicaNdesigns on etsy.
These two pieces of custom wall decor were two of my very favorites. Few newlyweds could help but be smitten by either one.
First, artwork that captures your unique fingerprints, set side by side for all time. Nashville artist Lori Danelle carves each print by hand before adding names, a date and a heart. Frame is optional, as they also show it mounted on plywood for a more rustic look; $500-$650.
Next up, celebrate a love that crossed state lines to finally unite in wedded bliss. Artist Sandrine Froehle memorializes your old stomping grounds with your two home states joined as one, complete with your names and date; $160-$180. I warned you… very irresistible!
And look at the price: $309!
Custom-made to fit, the gown and its spring flowers¬†are equally stunning from the front and the back.
For a more formal wedding, this could even be lovely on your bridesmaids.
Personally, I see a bride stepping from a forest into the sunlight or walking down the aisle in a wildflower meadow.
If only the designer would include a photo of a bride wearing it…
A very yummy creation indeed!
Adorable is about the only word I have for this On-The-Button Checkers Set by Napa Style. Pack a picnic and unfold this vintage-inspired tablecloth. After wine, cheese and chocolate,¬†you’ll be ready for a lazy afternoon game of checkers. (Do you even remember how to play?)
It works equally well on the floor or the kitchen table on a rainy day. And it comes complete with a set of pieces shaped like oversized buttons ($39).
I know this will turn up in at least one vintage picnic-themed engagement photo shoot very soon… (Hopefully it will be straight, unlike this one! Sorry about that–their website had it that way & I just couldn’t fix it!)
I just finished this trio of tiered dessert stands for a lovely bride named Kim. She wanted a set of centerpieces for her wedding’s dessert table that coordinated but were all slightly different in elegant pink & gold.
She chose Royal Tettau cups and saucers from Germany, Cauldon dinner plates from England and three different dessert plates for the middle tier, a mix from England & France.
I really love the concept, something I hadn’t considered before but one that is definitely possible when multiple pieces of vintage china are available. I hope she sends photos of the entire set up… I can only imagine what she is planning!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Why are you reading blogs and not celebrating your love? Just kidding… I know life has many callings these days, and sadly, celebrating can only be one of them! I am sure you have some plans up your sleeve for later today or tonight!
In¬†the meantime, I wanted to share these sweet & soooo affordable white lace containers from IKEA. Would you believe they are just $2.99 each? Meant as a home for potted plants, I found they work equally well to cast a romantic, flickering glow as a sturdy lumineria. Just add a votive candle¬†in a glass holder and there you are. Made of powder-coated galvanized steel, they have countless DIY¬†wedding decor uses. Bundles of silverware, bottles of wine, piles of cookies tucked inside pretty linens–these could showcase just about anything smaller than a breadbox. Create a plants-&-candles centerpiece with just a few. Now you have something for your weekend to-do list to go along with celebrating:¬†pop into¬†IKEA & stock up!
