New Approach to Decor

Okay, for people familiar with the wedding blogging world, this isn’t particularly new. But since most of what I’ve seen of Perth based decorators is the oldschool “throw fairy lights and draped scalloped fabric at everything*” approach, these pictures from Bride + Groom’s photo shoot for their new styling service is pretty exciting and modern. […]

Engagement Party!

So the engagement party was last weekend! Things were a little stressful at points during the preparation, and I was ready to sleep for a day after it ended, but overall I think things worked out really, really well. Some great friends and family offered to cater the party as a present, so what was […]

Engagement Invitations

They’re done! And only just mailed out, despite my best intentions to give everyone a good few weeks’ notice. We ended up creating a Facebook event in the meantime, which has actually led to most people RSVPing on there and ignoring my request for their address to send them my cute invitations! I’ve managed to […]

Table Pictures

I love the idea of using images instead of table numbers. Doesn’t this look so fab? So instead of saying “I’m on table 4,” you can say “I’m on the T-REX table”, or LLAMA TABLE, or TEAPOT TABLE, which is significantly more awesome. The rest of the wedding photos are absolutely worth a look too, […]

Garlands

I came across the most beautiful paper garlands today in Apartment Therapy: Aren’t they so wonderfully delicate? They’re made with fancy German paper that the seller has screen-printed herself. Can’t really get much more handmade than that. I’m not sure where I’d use them – draped in scallops around the dessert/cake table maybe? I had […]

Chrysanthemums

Ah, Mother’s Day. I live on the other side of my country to my mother, so I just called her up to wish her a nice day and boast about going to see the Mama Mia musical in Melbourne. But now that I have some interest in flowers and kind of like having them around […]

Colourful Tables

Really loving the look of this yellow and grey wedding, especially their tables. Having non-white table linens adds so much personality! I don’t think this combo of grey tablecloths and yellow napkins will work for my ‘heritage’ coloured venue though, and hiring it all is an extra cost I really don’t need. I could probably […]

More DIY Photobooth Backdrop Ideas

Speaking of photobooth backdrops, there’s some super cool ideas here that could look awesome on it. I already mentioned liking the look of book pages pasted onto a wall which is described here; I’m also really liking the idea of sticking fabric to the wall with a cornstarch paste mixture which lets you easily remove […]

Friend’s Hens

Attended my first hens night ever over the weekend! We started the night at my place with champagne, snacks, photos and games, then went on to dinner, drinks and dancing. A fabulous night was had by all! I blame this wedding obsession for making me go a little over the top with decorations… but they […]

Decor Ideas

My fabulous Chick of Honour (who shall henceforth be referred to as Miss T) and another good friend did some venue recon for me over the weekend, and today I got to see the videos and photos they took! The venue in question is The Forrest Centre Reception Centre, which looks pretty good from the […]
