Spring Fever: That Added Touch {Volume 1}


Spring Wedding Trends 2014

Looking to add a bit of edgy flair to your pastel spring colour palette? Bold, Black and White stripes will enhance any colour palette you decide to go with! And let’s be honest – it totally speaks to us {can’t you tell with our website? 😉 – well really ALL of our branding – I’m in Love what can I say!}

Bird cages have been on trend for quite some time, but have more so been utilized as card holders on the gift table. Rather than go with what the norm is, why not create a stunning centrepiece with birdcages in a variety of shapes and sizes. To add some “Spring” flavour to them, spruce them up with some added greenery!
This centrepiece featured above, is specifically done well – it’s clean, crisp and every aspect of the design is utilized very well.

Are Mason Jars Overdone? Maybe! But I still love them! They’re adorable, super versatile, and add that vintage feel that everyone seems to be going for these days!
To do them properly, stick with the theme and add them only to certain elements. Don’t over do it as last thing you want is your wedding looking like a bunch of Mason Jars fell off the back of a Jam truck (unless that IS the theme that you are going for). If you want them incorporated in your wedding, try just adding them to only one element such as just your centrepieces, or down the aisle.

Spring Fever: Simplistic Centrepieces {Volume 1}


Spring Wedding Trends 2014

Beauty is not always overdone decor, with that added Sparkle – beauty is simplicity. Why not use what nature has to offer?

Spring is a perfect season to really reflect on what this beautiful earth has to offer. When fresh blossoms wake up from the Winter freeze, even the air smells crisper – I always find myself happier once spring has arrived! 

Going with the flow with what is trending for 2014 – here are a few examples of simplistic {yet definitely Make the Mark} centrepieces! 

Let the beauty of nature take over, and keep your table setup simple! Adding spring florals to a variety of vases, milk pitchers and even mason jars will not only be cost effective but will also create that wow factor that you’re searching for! 

If you’re looking for something un-traditional, why not add some grass or utilize the fruit that you can easily grab from the local farmers market! 

So go ahead, get creative, let your personality and charisma shine through – because this is your day!

Thanks for reading, Cheers!

Spring Fever: Vibrant Bouquets {Volume 1}


Spring Wedding Trends 2014

With Winter at an end and Spring on the horizon, it’s easy to get swept away with the colourful and pastel hues. Spring is a time to shine, a time to flaunt your cardigans, skirts and dresses (depending where you live of course – aka the never-ending winter like here in Calgary). It’s a time to brighten your smile and pack away your winter frocks. 

The pastel hues often bring back fond memories of a simpler time with that added Vintage elegance. I find that more often large bouquets are popping up everywhere with a variety of flowers being used rather than sticking to just 1, 2 or 3. 

So go ahead, get creative, let your personality and charisma shine through – because this is your day!

Thanks for reading, Cheers!
