When I came across this couple’s wedding on Style Me Pretty, I just had to make an inspiration board out of it. This couple is totally awesome, and they have to be to pull this off. This wedding just totally reminds me of a mix between Alice in Wonderland and Donnie Darko. I just totally love weird things <3
I just love calla lilies. To me they look so elegant with their long stems and their shape. A very good choice to have as centerpieces because they can go in all kinds of vases.

Calla Lilies make an elegant bouquet as well.
How I do love these invitations by InspiraDesigns on Etsy. The colors are so bold and so are the designs. Not only are there invitations in this Etsy store, but there are also cards, menus, DIY garland and thank you cards amongst other things.
Today’s post is for the fun filled adventure seekers and those who are a child at heart. This carnival wedding seems like lots of fun with their street vendor food, ferris wheel, games and snow cones. Who wouldn’t be thrilled to attend this wedding?!!!
These totally awesome invitations were photographed by Kelly Prizel. I love the old school bakery twine they used here. These invitations just look so perfect for the occasion.

Carnations are perhaps one of the most misunderstood flowers when it comes to party planning. Truthfully I think a lot of people like to steer clear of carnations because they are cheap and I guess a lot of people don’t want to look cheap. Yes, carnations are cheap, but they also come in so many different colors and their shape is perfect for creating amazing centerpieces. Perhaps carnations are worth a second and closer look…
Found these pictures off a blog named Cheap ‘N’ Quirky. Very nifty blog and the name says it all. Love it!

If you are having a barn wedding, fall wedding or even want to incorporate fresh produce into your wedding, be inspired by this post. Not only is fruit really healthy, but it also makes great decoration and unbelievably awesome sweet treats, so don’t worry about it going to waste because there is always the option of making apple cider, fruit tarts or pies with them for or after your celebration.
I am totally nuts for candy apples. This wonderful picture of miniature candy apples made by Allyson Baker Design, which is quite a nifty blog with all sorts of craftiness. I love how she used twigs in the center of them. So cool.

I also found a step-by-step DIY for making your own mini candy apples on The Finer Things, another nifty blog. I just had to go and look up this recipe because, truthfully, I was intrigued by this whole miniature candy apple thing. What an excellent favor/treat idea!

Another favorite treat of mine. That’s right, miniature fruit tarts! Click on the picture or link for an excellent recipe from Salad-in-a-Jar‘s blog.

And when we talk about farmer’s market inspirations, we cannot forget the honey (or, in this case, almond honey). Thank you once again to the goddess, Martha Stewart, for all of her awesomeness.

If your looking for a really fun centerpiece that guests will really want to take home with them, then look no further. Flower centerpieces filled to the rim with candy are pretty, sweet and fun. This is a great centerpiece if there are going to be a lot of children at your wedding and they are also easy to set up by yourself.

This one right here got me super excited because it comes from one of my favorite blogs, Green Wedding Shoes and it’s also perfect for a garden themed wedding (I had a garden themed wedding) and I am also absolutely obsessed with terrariums (I have hermit crabs). This project is a little bit more involved, but the outcome is worth it and it just makes me feel so happy just looking at the picture!

These are just absolutely gorgeous….

And here are the place card holders that I made for my wedding.
There is no denying that green is a popular color trend for weddings and I love it! It just stands out and makes a fresh and bold statement. And what a better day to show off green wedding decor than today. Happy St. Patrick’s!

It’s been a while, but I have begun to settle into my new life and feel a lot more up to blogging again. I just feel so blessed to ;have a wonderful husband, who brightens my each and every day, and friends who’s company I truly enjoy and, of course, a great family. As I settle into my married life, I have received the wonderful news of my sister’s engagement and I couldn’t be happier to be her matron of honor and help her step by step plan a wedding that is right for her. As our best friend says, “this is the first day of the next year of our lives.” So lets hope this process goes as smoothly as it did for me. So far we know this: NYC and Yellow. So I made this inspiration board for her.
