How to Style a Vintage DIY Wedding

9th March 2015

Beautiful bride, Taryn, married her long-time love, Ben, in a sweet vintage-inspired wedding with loads of little details we just love. This is one of the prettiest DIY weddings we have ever seen, so we simply had to share with you how clever she is!  //// Taryn and Ben had been together eight years when they got engaged, so they didn’t see the sense in waiting too much longer to call each other husband and wife. And so they gave themselves only six months to plan and execute their dream wedding. A love of craft and styling, and also time…

DIY: Honeycomb Garland

10th December 2014

If you’re anything like me, you buy all these fancy decorations and then don’t really know exactly what to do with them placement-wise to make them look as spectacular as you would like. This idea from the clever folk at Oh Happy Day! is brilliant! I love how putting all of these honeycomb decorations bunched up together in one impressive garland creates a fabulous statement.  It frames the food table perfectly, and would also work for a sweets table adornment, behind the bridal party table, or as a photo booth backdrop. You could select colours that tie in with your…

DIY Paint-dipped Glass Jars

21st October 2014

The Mason Jar has had its day in the sun. Now it’s time for a more modest jar. A jar we all know, but seldom pay homage to. A jar that may appear too small in stature to warrant much attention at all. A jar with very few reuse prospects. Usually fated to be a mere button or paperclip holder, this jar has far too long been underestimated and overlooked, yet its prominent presence in many a home across the nation – nay, across the world – is evident. It has brought inside it much-needed supply of emergency food in…
