{floral} FRIDAY :: the second week of november, 2013.

well, dear ladies & gentlemen, another week has come to a close and with it - more lovely flowers! i tried to be a bit more selective than i typically am {who can blame me?} so this post should be a little less overwhelming in scope than you all are used to ;)

enjoy!

a single bloom is understated and a lovely addition to any place setting!

natural, organic and oh-so-pretty as a bouquet

feathers! oh my. this tied in fabulously with the bride's bird theme ;)

mixing spiky, oversized blooms with rounded smaller ones is never a bad idea, y'all.

such a sweet idea for escort cards - hang them from a tree! i'd throw in a few blooms too.

oh my stars i just love this clematis bouquet!

so this bride's theme was {clearly} peonies. heck yes. i'll never get tired of those suckers!

my absolute favorite part about oversized blooms is how fabulous they look as single stems in little bud vases. undeniably gorgeous, no?

and to end on a seasonal note, these arrangements just scream "fall" to me - love it! the tin vases aren't half bad themselves, either ;)
 
as always, have a beautiful weekend & XO,

{floral} FRIDAY :: the second friday in july, 2013.

 {via 100 layer cake}
something about this mix of reds, soft pink and white is breathtaking. it's amazing what a difference a bit of greenery makes!
 
  {via 100 layer cake}
if peonies aren't at the top of your favorite flowers list, i'm not sure we can be friends much longer;) but seriously - what a classic, elegant look for a bride {or her bridesmaids!} to clutch a single blossom in lieu of a bouquet.

 {via every last detail}
contrasting the color of your cake flowers with the icing while keeping them all in the same color family is a fab-u-lous idea!
 
 {via green wedding shoes}
not only is this supremely different from your run-of-the-mill bouquet, but it is also a great example of how pretty green can be with pops of orange + purple.
 
 {via ruffled blog}
romantic, soft and delicate blooms on a bed of greenery = so pretty.
 
 {via ruffled blog}
this color palette is to-die-for! i'd do bridesmaids dresses in a shade of mint or maybe a pale blue. love love love!
 
 {via ruffled blog}
wildflowers: perfect when clutched by a bride whose heart most desires a simple lace gown, bare feet & flowing locks.
 
{via southern weddings}
this is just gorgeous. it would be lovely for a warm color palette or in contrast with turquoise reception/
 
{via wedding chicks}
this is great inspiration for a ceremony  backdrop. leave it similar in size for an intimate gathering or add height + width and a larger table for a more dramatic feel.
 
and bonus font loveliness...
 
{via every last detail}
how cute is this menu styling? the calligraphy is awesome, too.

 {via every last detail}
i adore this cake. it would be more than perfect for a lighthearted couple who also happens to adore typography!
 
have a beautiful weekend, y'all!
 
XO,

{make it your own} MONDAY: visually defining the sweetheart table




The sweetheart table is a special opportunity to give you a moment of respite as a newlywed couple. It is also the perfect way to set yourselves apart and identify your own space from amongst your sea of guests! The table does not have to be set up on a high-rise pedestal, be decorated with strings or "Mr. and Mrs." signs to let guests know it's your table. See below for a few unique ways to visually and subtly set yourselves apart from the crowd.






Use over-sized arm chairs to both differentiate your seating area and, in this case, make you more comfortable when taking a break from the dance floor. Reuse your ceremony arch to create a frame around you and your partner. Add some drama to the table with specific mood lighting and reflective sparkle. Use a high back love seat that doubles as a dramatic backdrop. Have special china or glassware - perhaps a special place setting you can later use at home - only at your table. Finally, anchor your sweetheart table with a large mirror that reflects back into the space  and helps your guests see you twice as well!

There are a multitude of ways to set your sweetheart table apart without spelling it out for your guests. As long as your table makes you and your sweetheart feel comfortable and special, you can't go wrong. Check out more great ideas on the MGE Pinterest "Make It Your Own - Design" Board.

XO,
Nicole
