…Now That’s Inspiring!

I’m in awe.  Today while visiting the Totally Tabletops blog, I came across this gorgeous floral dress centerpiece, made out of real flowers!   Check it out

How fun must it be to be able to create such amazing floral arrangements?!  Seriously, I get excited when I am able to arrange a vase of roses, let alone something like this!  I think this would be super cute next to the gift or cake table at any bridal shower or wedding, don’t you?

Dry your tears and fears my dears.  Planning a wedding in the middle of a recession can be scary but it doesn’t have to be!  Get your “champagne” wedding on a “beer budget” with these creative ideas from the MJ Trim Blog!

Decorate old silverware with rhinestones, or fancy up your flutes with them as well!  You don’t really need an $800 pair of Mui Mui shoes for your big day.  Instead, pickup an affordable pair and add your own embellishments!  Looking to save on flowers or jewelry?  Learn how to make your own fabulous flowers out of fabric.  Don’t want your reception decor to be a bore?  Jazz it up with buttons or whatever other crafty thing you can think of.  The options are limitless, even if your budget isn’t.

The girly girls on Gossip Girl are always in style.  Instead of trying to hunt for that expensive hair accessory you saw Blair Waldorf wear in that one episode, why not just make your own?  I’m loving these simple, easy, crafty ideas to achieving the look for less:

See, it’s all good!  For more stylish DIY ideas for your day be sure to head over to the MJ Trim Blog and also check out Kristin’s wedding ideas.  You can also find instructions there on how to make all of these projects shown above, including how to make a kick butt wedding veil.  If you need to find any of the products used, get shopping at their store, M&J Trimming.  Happy planning!!

Budget Friendly Holiday Tablescape Ideas…

…Stylish Decor ~ Get The Look!

‘Tis the season to be jolly and entertain.  Whether you’re planning a winter wedding, holiday party or an intimate holiday dinner, get inspired with these beautiful ideas from Pottery Barn!

On a tight budget?  Simple use of branches, pine cones and pure white candles can help you mimic this look.  Want that frosted touch?  Take your items outside and spray paint them with metallic paint to finish off that wintry feel

To get the look shown below on a budget, pick up some tall glass vases and round frosted votive holders from your local craft store or dollar store.  Fill them with small red round ornaments and limes.  Use plastic martini glasses and small plastic cocktail glasses in complimentary colors which you can also find at many dollar stores or party stores

Or, just head on over to Pottery Barn where you can find all of these items!  Also, check out their sister store, West Elm, for more affordable entertaining and decor ideas.  Happy holidays and happy planning!
