DIY: Papier-m

2nd March 2015

This is a wedding decoration DIY anyone can do. It can be done in any colour theme for any occasion – bridal shower, engagment party, even your wedding! I can see this making a splendid addition to a photo booth backdrop, or even strung along the bridal table.  The very clever Jordan over at Oh Happy Day! is responsible for this papier-mâché lit garland DIY. It’s perfect for a crafternoon with your bridesmaids. Take a peek at the full DIY instructions, you won’t believe how simple this one is.

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…

DIY: Crepe paper wall hanging

23rd July 2014

If you’ve not yet noticed, I’m a bit of a fan of Oh Happy Day, an incredibly clever blog with party + special events (wedding!) planning ideas, and stacks of almost stupidly amazing decorative DIY projects. This one I’m sharing today may just be my fave ever.  Crepe paper wall hanging! This is such a cool design, inspired by Indian floral torans; it’s inexpensive, and so so versatile. You could do this with any colour under the sun, so it would blend with so many themes! How would you use it in a wedding? Three words. Head. Table. Backdrop. Boom!  For…

Kenilworth Homestead Wedding with Perfect Weather

13th March 2012

Gosh, we have had some interesting weather here on the Sunshine Coast this week! Cyclone warnings and sudden changes and all! Last Saturday’s brides must have been thrilled with their beautiful, fine day, though. I only hope this coming weekend’s brides are just as lucky. If your wedding is coming up this weekend, I have a nice story for you to lift your spirits. On Matt and Mandi’s wedding day, not only rain, but a cyclone was predicted. However, as you can see, it turned out to be an absolutely perfect day! A sweet ceremony was held at the “cute…

DIY Paper Flower Cones

11th March 2012

If you're anything like me, you've started your Monday with all manner of promises to yourself for the week. For me that means healthy eating, packing my son's lunches the night before school, instead of the morning of, which invariably leads to us running late. There are sometimes promises of mid-week facials and redoing my shellac nails before they start to flake, instead of two days after they do and I've already had myself a peeling party. There are keeping tidy promises, more exercise promises, (blog posts out on time promises…), and all of them I try my best to…
