Ahh…the coolness of winter makes me forget the gorgeous colors of all the other seasons. I was feeling in the mood for a pink wedding. The soft and strong tones of pink can be used in so many ways to bring romance to your special day. All you need is a little inspiration.
If you are more into the softer tones, don’t be afraid that the pale pink colors will feel washed out. It was a fear I had for my wedding day. I paired soft shades of pink with candles and splashes of brighter tones and it looked phenomenal. If you’re someone who loves color and wishes to go the brighter route, go for it! Bold pink tones look great with lots of greens and will definitely add a lot of personality to your wedding day. Just remember, not everything has to be pink, subtle accents are often enough to accentuate your main color.
Here’s a bit of inspiration for all you brides, regardless of where you stand on the pink spectrum! Enjoy =)
This Christmas season, my husband and I were blessed with the news that soon we will have a bundle of joy! We are extremely excited to have our first baby in 2013. This is the season of giving and God gave us the wonderful gift, the fruit of our love! We want to share with you how much joy and love we experience as a result of this blessing!
Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I shared something with you, life seemed to get a bit in way of blogging. But I am all pumped up and excited for this Christmas season! It is such a joyous time of year and as I get older I seem to forget that. Often bills and other adult things get in the way of the true meaning of the holidays. Gift exchanges are not about monetary values but about seeing the excitement on the face of the person that you are gifting. It’s a time where you really test your knowledge about your friends and loved ones and give them something (even small) that would make them really happy. In regards to family, it’s a time to put away all offenses and remember the bright moments that you shared!
One of my favorite things about this season is the smell of the Christmas tree! That pine scent fills the room and overwhelms the house with the Christmas spirit. However the pleasant scent comes with quite a bit of responsibility, such as watering, messy needles and loss of space in the house. I think that if you aren’t comfortable with a live tree in your house, that’s totally fine! Here are a few lovely alternatives for you to consider. As long as you stick with your creativity and embrace the Christmas spirit, it doesn’t matter what your Christmas tree is made of!
I enjoy pairing things with gold! From outfits and accessories to house decor, gold is a beautiful accent color. I often find myslf in home depot buying gold spray paint to make adjustment in my house. I love to spray paint frames, vases and anything metallic. To be gold represents grandeur and beauty.
I think this is one of the cheapest and simplest decorations I have ever made. I saw this tutorial on Ruffled and decided that I NEEDED to try it! The result was awesome and the process was extremely fun. The garland is perfect for birthdays, showers, any gatherings and even wedding decorations! I enjoyed it so much I decided to share it with you!
Twine (I used pink)
Tissue Paper (go wild with the colors) Fringe Garland (love the metallic colors)
1. Fold the tissue paper in half (taking a few pieces at a time) and cut fringe strips.
2. Separate the tissue paper and twist the top, securing with twine.
3. Repeat the same for the metallic tassels.
5. Put it all on a long piece of twine and play around with the lengths.
6. Put your own twist on it and include pictures of the person in honor (bride/groom or birthday girl/boy) to make your own beautiful hanging collage!
