Variations on a Theme

5 May

As an ex-features editor on a bridal magazine, I’ve seen my share of white weddings. David Austin roses. Vintage typewriters. Tea lights.  I promised myself I wouldn’t link to any old weddings. It would take a killer theme to get me across the line. And I’ve just found one…

Oh my lordie lord that backdrop. It’s got little macrame pebbleholders in it! Look:

And Geo invites!

And neon chartreuse pinatas with geo paper garlands!

More more more photos on 100 Layer Cake. It’s making me swoon right now. How ’bout you? Do you do wedding porn? Sneak a peek at wedding pics in the paper? Or are you more a menu perve? Shoe lady? What do you swoon over?


Paper Shop

18 Apr

Potter + Butler make sweet toppers and garlands so delicate and pretty, I wonder if Emily and Carrie breathe out while they’re making them. The girls also have a blog with lots of inspiration on ways to play with their pretties.

You thought piñatas were papier-mâché mash-ups gooed together in the kitchen for kids parties? Ha ha, not at Confetti System. These are the most glamourous pretties you will ever encounter and so, so cool. You can buy them in Australia from the equally cool but far less intimidating Third Drawer Down.

Colour Blind? Or just a little lost when it comes to combos? Paper Tuesday‘s got you covered. Plus the paper goods are all made in the States with sustainability in mind. No anonymous Guangzhou factories here (or so they say).

Huh? These aren’t pretties, more like the office supplies from the back of the filing cabinet at your dad’s office. Yes, they are. However they are perfect, pristine, blank. In fact, they’re from BLANK supplies. For a craft tragic that constantly bemoans the painfully distasteful branding, the oversights of design or even worse, the little flourishes that apparently create a point of difference for most stationery or packaging supplies – this is nirvana.

Slightly Deco Hens

16 Apr

A few shots from the little bit of styling done for Arti’s Hens drinks. Terrible lighting – I’m pining for a proper camera to elevate me into serious blogger-nerd territory. Until then, it’s trusty iPhone photos I’m afraid.

Basically, we’re talking a yummy drink, a few mirror balls, and a box of falsies to enhance the evening’s flirt factor. Fun in application increases with every sip!

Come for a Jungle Party!

Ahh Kitchen Tea

31 Jan

A slightly so-frenchy-so-chic sunny picnic kitchen tea for the lovely bride, Arti. Delightful deck chair stripes from Ici et La.
