EVERYDAY | WEDDING DAY: BAUBLES

Everyday-Wedding-Day---Baubles

Ahhh, jewelry – one of the best parts of planning your wedding look. Although you might be tempted to load up on the sparkle, I prefer to keep it simple and stick with a few delicate pieces. I also like to go with two of the three above categories instead of wearing them all – it makes a big difference between looking finished or looking overdone.

If you’re in the market for new jewels for your big day, consider these pieces above – they are special enough to wear alongside your wedding dress without stealing the show, but they aren’t too fancy to pass up for everyday wear, either.

CREATING A BEAUTIFUL WORKSPACE

A-Beautiful-Workspace1

As a blogger, I get the luxury of working from home, which is both a blessing and a curse. In the beginning, I found that I was easily distracted by other things around me because I didn’t have a comfortable, designated workspace.

Creating my own workspace in my home is really important for me to be able to focus. I prefer my space to be clutter free – I feel like a clear desk is a clear mind! Put your papers and odds & ends away in containers and paper organizers. This doesn’t mean that I like it to be too stark though – if you know anything about me by now, is that I’m enamored with the pretty. Decorate sparingly and with purpose, using things like patterned mousepads and textured desk accessories. I personally love fresh blooms on my desk!

Even if you don’t work from home – take some time to spruce up your desk at the office. You spend so much of your life there, I promise it’ll brighten up your day ever so slightly to start a day with a beautiful, efficient space.

PARKING LOT TRANSFORMATION

Sometimes we take an ugly ole parking lot and make it the perfect spot for a cocktail and a lounge. Sneak peek from a recent event we designed at No Vacancy. More pics will be shared very soon.

HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO

Have-Your-Cake

 

There might be nothing better than wedding cake tasting. I know that it was one of my favorite parts of wedding planning! While a lot of people don’t put as much focus on their cake, having it tie in to the aesthetics of your day makes a huge difference, especially when you’re looking back at your wedding album!

Above are a few different ways to add fun to your cake – you could add greenery (instead of the traditional flowers) like Kari & Elan did, or you could add a bold pop of color against a white cake, like Natalie & Pat did. If you’re a little more of a glamour girl, you could add edible sparkles on your cake to add that extra glitz.

For more in depth details on how to design your wedding cake, Beth has written a great piece, here - be sure to check it out!
