Moodboard Monday

Hello everybody!  Hope you had a lovely long weekend.  We are channeling spring today with a magical garden wedding moodboard.  A very special lady asked us for some ideas for a backyard celebration, which is right on trend this year, especially with warmer weather just around the corner (we hope!)  This bride-to-be’s favorite colors are purple and silver, so we’ve suggested hues of lilac, lavender and florals and silver touches.  We love the idea of an intimate picnic wedding, and hope these beautifully whimsical images inspire you today.

You can find all these images on our Garden Wedding Pinterest board.

Even though the Olympics are swiftly coming to an end, it’s not too late to gather friends and family for a Olympic-inspired celebration.  Here are a few ideas using the 5 ring colors, and of course a bit of gold to top it all off!

Moodboard Monday

Wow, it is really Monday again!?  These weekends just fly by!  Hope it was a goodie.  Today we’ve got a birthday party moodboard to share with you, a preppy horse and hound first birthday.  A picnic at the stables would be ideal, with cardboard baskets of yummy treats and lots of flag bunting in bright colors.  We thought frisbees would be such a cute favor too.  And don’t forget some apples for the horses!

A Little Bit of Green and Gold!

We are addicted to the Olympics, prehaps its because Team SA are bringing home the golds! Go Boys! So to celebrate their incredible achievements, and to hopefully usher in a few more sparkly medals, we have put together a green and gold moodboard!

Moodboard Monday

Hello Monday! Wow, what an exciting weekend – we have been glued to the box.  Yay for our Sharks win, and for our amazing Cameron on his gold medal and world record.  A bit later in the week we’ll share some fun and easy ideas for a sporty get together, but for now here is today’s moodboard to inspire you.  It’s a combo of simple elegance and rustic charm, perfect for a very special couple planning their summer wedding.  We love how the white, sage and raspberry pink work together.  We’re thinking lots of crisp white, lots of sparkling glass, soft ribbon and plenty of personal touches. Their venue is the stunning Netherwood Farm in the Midlands, it’s going to be gorgeous!

Friday Favourite: Heart Felt

This Friday we’re loving these beautiful felt hearts from purlbee.com. They are just so delicate and beautiful. Wouldn’t you just love to give these, filled with sweeties, as little favours to your wedding guests? I know we would love to receive them! In fact, after digging around in our fabric cupboard and finding a few pieces of felt, I think some crafting may be in order this weekend. Have a look at our “heart felt” pinterest page and get inspired to make a few hearts of your own. Happy Friday everyone!

Laser Love Affair

We are obsessed with laser cutting at the moment.  How gorgeous are these wooden invitations!?   They come from a stunning website featuring such inspiring and beautiful paper goods.  Click on the image to visit it.  We’re dying to try this technique out, hope we’ll have our own design to share with you too!

Moodboard Monday

This week’s moodboard is full of inspiration for a beautiful baby shower.  We’ve just finished the printable kit for this special mom-to-be and just love the different yellows and greys combo.  Her friend who arranged the shower asked for a vintage-inspired feel, with birds, cages and a pram in the design. We’ll post our designs soon, but in the meantime enjoy these gorgeous pics…and have a happy Monday!

Inspiration Item: Egg Box

The humble egg box can be the star attraction at a party or wedding.  We used them for favors at Milla’s Rainbow Party, filled with brightly colored balls of playdough. Add a fun cutter and it makes the perfect take home gift for little ones.

Here are a few more ideas for clever and pretty egg box favors…
