Hello all! Apologies for my lack of posts recently, but I come bearing exciting news. My brother and his fiance have set a wedding date next year at the beautiful Summerour Studios in Midtown, Atlanta. She is already family in my eyes, but we get to plan a party! And to make things even sweeter, my future sister-in-law asked me to be Maid of Honor. It came as a complete surprise and a true honor!
We already have big ideas for the wedding. She’s a graphic designer so you know it’ll be spectacular. First things first though, we had to gather her girls together for a bridesmaid proposal.
She was so sweet to buy all of us these gorgeous pearl earrings and rings for the proposal. With a little bit of moss, some gold bows (sewn by my mom), and fluffy pink peonies, it was the perfect mix of DIY glam. Here’s a shot of the bride to be!
Can’t wait to plan a wedding with this girl. How did you propose to your bridesmaids?
Spotted: awesome throwback rice packaging. I’ve been seeing this packaging more and more around town from specialty Japanese food and/or rice shops. This 2kg bag of rice from Arobo in Hiroo is a more modern take on the design.
Note: Japanese rice is a great omiyage (souvenir). It’s flavorful with a great texture that’s hard to find outside of Japan – especially if it’s from this year’s harvest! Visit one of the specialty rice shops like Suzunobu in Meguro.
I love free downloads – especially when they’re from Hermes! Download these cool leather desktop wallpapers in all sorts of animal skin textures and colors. With 35 of them to choose from, there’s one for everyone. Textures so chic and rich, even PETA wouldn’t complain! Get yours here.
Also check out Hermes’ DIY Paper Clutch or their DIY cuff over at Adorn London.
I’m loving these adorable holiday themed gift tags and pockets over at Eat Drink Chic. Adding a pocket adds a tad of sophistication to gifts and an element of mystery. Plus when they’re so cute like this, how could anyone resist?
Download these tags for your holiday gift giving here.
I love love love this giant flower tutorial from Duitang, spotted over at Too Stinkin’ Cute. I can’t wait to make them for a garden party or to spruce up a plain ol’ dinner party at home. Don’t they seem kind of “Alice in Wonderland” but much more whimsical? Hope you’re all having a great weekend!
Looking for a ‘cool’ way to add some pizzaz to your summer party? Look no further than these cute polar glacier molds! They’ll instantly cool you down on those summer days. And if that doesn’t work, at least they’ll distract you from thinking how hot you are for a few seconds. “Oh those creative Japanese designers…”
