How can a ceiling covered in flowers not wow you? Crystal chandeliers complete the glamorous effect of this lush indoor inverted garden. Use the same concept over a dance floor, head table or ceremony site.

THE PERFECT FLORAL ARCH

The arch is a focal point of any ceremony, so make it something to stare at. And there’s nothing quite like a flower-covered trellis to do just that. Hanging crystals and cascading vines create a pretty backdrop for photos. Play with color and floral varieties to make it work for any season or setting.

ALL WHITE EVERYTHING

There’s something so timeless about a clean and crisp all-white reception. Use height, texture and lighting in your centerpieces to create depth. This will make your flowers stand out — even against a monochromatic background

OBSESSION WITH OMBRE

The ombre trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. It’s made its mark on almost every wedding element, from invitations to cakes and even dresses. This look works best on long tables, so you can really see the slight variation between each shade. You can stick to one flower type, like roses or hydrangeas, to really make the colors pop, but feel free to do whatever types of flowers you love!

FLORAL WALLS

Flower-covered walls are the next big thing in wedding flower decor. And why not? This idea pulls double-duty as both a ceremony and photo booth backdrop. It’s also a great way to bring the outdoors in if you’re saying “I do” in a ballroom setting.

HAPPY PLANNING!

diy ornament wreath ideas main

If you don’t know by now, I’m quite the crafty girl.  With a little imagination you can transform pieces into one of a kind items that look like they would be purchased at Pottery Barn!  Each year, Christmas decorating can be expensive and overwhelming, but it truly does make your home feel so beautiful and festive which is therefore, worth the hassle. While some of it can be expensive, I’m here to tell you that this is NOT always the case. And there are so many different styles and ideas!! Head on over to Michaels or your nearest craft store and you can buy what you need for a great price (be sure to use that 50% off coupon they offer to buy the actual wreath, especially if you are buying a plain green one that you plan to spruce up). It’s all in how elaborate you want it to look.  And the really great thing is that you can use it every year!  So, let’s get inspired with some of my favorite pictures and then I’ll show you a simple step by step guide to making a festive ornament wreath! 🙂

I hope that was inspiring!  I love all different kinds of decorations.  We will learn how to make a new style each holiday season.  For today, let’s zip through a quick tutorial on how to make a simple ornament wreath (the one pictured at the very top) for *dramatic pause* less than $20! Not only will you feel a sense of pride sharing that you made it, but you can also reuse it year after year! Now lets get started . . .

WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 
1) Start by using a simple wooden wreath form.This wreath form was found at the Dollar Tree, but you can use all sorts of other wreath forms with great results (styrofoam or grapevine wreaths work too.) So, go forth and pick the wreath form of your choice.  Just be sure that your wreath form has a big center opening.  Usually the bigger the form, the prettier the wreath.  So, once you have your wreath form…

2) First things first, you’re going to need a lot of ornaments. More than a hundred on this wreath. Go to the dollar store and get 6 tubes of ornaments (which gives about 75 ornaments in varying colors and that’s only $6).  If you want, spray paint them whatever color scheme you want or simply use the colors as they come. Make this your own! If you love a certain color scheme, glitter, metallic, neutrals . . . whatever!! Make it fit you! Also, watch for after Christmas sales and get ones for dirt cheap for next year that can really be some pop pieces!!
3) Glue gun or super glue
4) Ribbon, to tie a beautiful bow on the top and hang it from a mirror or door (or you can purchase the pre-tied bows that are already perfect and gorgeous)
LET’S GET STARTED: 
Step 1: Hot glue the ornaments around the inside of the wreath, with the tops of the ornaments facing up.

Step 2: Glue ornaments around the outside of the wreath, still with the tops facing up.

Step 3: Flip the entire thing over. You’re now looking at the front side of your wreath.

Step 4: Fill in the gaps, beginning with some of your large to medium ornaments.

Step 5: Finish filling in any gaps with your smallest ornaments.
At the end, I also glue a few small ornaments around the outer edge, which I think makes it look more unique and less like a bulbous donut.

After all of the ornaments were glued on, I attached a simple metal wreath hanger and tied a big bow at the top. I love all wreaths when hung in front of a pretty mirror, it looks so elegant and chic!

These bathrooms are retreats of beauty and peace, let them inspire you to decorate your home with little touches that can turn a room from plain to pretty. Notice all the small details — the glass jars that hold everyday items while making the space look polished and glamorous, fresh florals, candles, oversized mirrors, folded towels and glittering chandeliers — all creating beautiful ambiance and style.  Albert Hadley once said, “Decorating is not making stage sets, it’s not about making pretty pictures for the magazines; it’s really about creating a quality of life, a beauty that nourishes the soul.” Fresh flowers, candlelight, bits of gold and a lovely lingering scent are daily inspirations that make life a little sweeter.

There is something about Paris that is simply magical.  It is the city of romance, the city of lights — pink peonies strewn about, champagne for brunch, crystal chandeliers, intricate moldings in every room,  the exclusive home of Ladurée macaroons — a city full of all things high fashion and perfectly couture.  It is the land of chignons and Chanel, beaded satin and silk, a place so supremely feminine that even the hardest of hearts might be softened.

There are very few pieces that evoke a chic and glamorous reaction. French, feminine and impossibly romantic shades of lavender and soft blush, dresses of tulle and Parisian decor all intermingle, creating pure perfection . . . I love the wavy hair, fresh florals, and glimmering shoes – tied with a bow. Clearly, I’m a hopeless romantic. Not to mention a serious girls girl… Enjoy some simple pleasures today. Happy Monday.

Ashley and Matt hosted about 200 guests at their destination wedding held in Cabo at the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort. It provided the most pristine spot for the breathtaking nuptials. Ashley and Matt went with all-white decor and a few silver and gray accents to add a luxe touch to the theme. The couple asked guests to dress in all white (This is very uncommon, and I usually disagree with the idea, but surprisingly, it turned out beautiful without taking anything away from the bride’s big moment) Don’t let the neutral tones fool you, their wedding video shows you just how fun a wedding with a poolside affair complete with loud music and good friends can be… This is, a destination wedding done right. . . Congrats.
