I love the use of Gloxinia plants by this couple as their wedding table centerpieces. It's also great for folks on a budget as it has such nice, large, juicy blossoms. Go read more about this lovely wedding at The Bride's Cafe.
Really enjoying this blog from the designers at Lollipop Events in Southern California called I Love Lolli. I can never get enough wedding and design inspiration! Check out this post called "Let Them Eat Cake" - a romantic and lush combination. Pure eye candy!
I can be a little crazy when it comes to antiques. I wouldn't say that they are in huge supply (at least what I am looking for) here in Oregon so when the chance arrises for an antique show, I squeeeeeze it in.That is to say after a huge wedding and during finishing the shop to open. I gave myself only 90 minutes to shop.
So I wanted to share with you this fab booth called Candywinkel. It is created by paper designers Amy Smith (of Goosey Press) and Alex Wijnen (of Cecily Ink). The concept for the line started with a five-hour plane ride to NYC in May (they both were exhibiting at the National Stationery Show).
Candywinkel – "winkel" being the Dutch word for store - they call it "your place for all things sweet and pretty!"
Such a clever and cute concept...they take vintage containers and load them up with all sorts of old fashioned sweets in yummy little color combos. I wanted to swoop it all up and have a tea party in a garden!
Beautiful wedding centerpiece ideas featured at Brides.com. The top one is a gorgeous terrarium by floral designer and landscape architect Wenonah Webster. She works in Hudson New York and also designs with talented floral designer Ariella Chezar. I love the little shot of coral color against the lush begonia greens and moss - so precious.
And this one is by another favorite designer of mine - Michelle Rago. It features luscious succulents in a modern square glass container - a textural feast for the eyes.
More succulents this time in a series of log boxes - designed by accomplished floral designer Matthew Robbins of Artfool. They are simple and clever and would make a lovely modern and natural display.
I love the idea of the bridal line from Simple Silhouettes...stylish unfussy bridal dresses that come in different colors and fabrics. I also love the photography and styling on their website. Uncommon color combinations make the simple styles look hip and fresh.
