Category Archives: Inspiration Boards
My birthday is soon approaching! (2 weeks & 4 days! Yes, I’m one of those annoying people who counts down the days…) I’ve started a tradition of throwing a huge house party every year for my birthday. This year I couldn’t decide between certain themes, so I asked my family, friends, & fb, and thanks to everyone’s opinion I decided to throw a kick ass CANDYLAND party!
For my party I’m not going to focus so much on the characters from the game because I’m turning 24, not 12. I’m mainly pulling inspiration from the bright colors & candies/sweets. A friend of mine suggested watching ‘Katy Perry’s – California Girls’ video & that gave me all the inspiration I needed. (‘Fergie – Fergalicious’ is a good one!)
So can I tell you how much I love this inspiration board?! It’s frkn magical…
I’m so excited to plan and decorate off of this board. I’ll be sharing my ‘planning process’ of my party here, so stay tuned!
The weather is beyond magical today! So magical, I attempted to get a tan (fail..) & I created this beachy, tropical, wedding inspiration board. Looking at it makes me want to go on vacation!!!
colors: coral, seafoam green, sky blue, cream/white
Fashion trends to Wedding Trends:
Here’s some different ways to incorporate the current stripes trend, such as Kim Kardashian is wearing, into any wedding. Bring stripes into table decor with striped napkins and straws, into clothing through ties and hair accessories, and into wedding paper through invitations, envelope liners, paper-cones, and bunting or banners. My fave is the cupcake liner from shop sweet lulu!

Here’s some different ways to bring the latest fashion trends into any wedding! Lace, being a big fashion trend this spring, can easily be incorporated into a wedding through not only the clothing, but through the decor, accessories, stationery, and dining details. Tie lace ribbon to jars or around cupcake holders, glue doilies to mason jars, hang doilies to string lights, create your own lace-poms, (all easy enough for anyone to make) and wear pretty fashion and accessories with layers of lace.

Before I design anything, I always look for inspiration; from blogs, clothing, colors, fabrics, decor, television shows, movies, art, nature.. anything really! While on tumblr, I was completely inspired by this Louis Vuitton bag below. From that I created this high-fashion-couture wedding inspiration board and I absolutely love it. Can’t wait to design matching wedding paper (:
