Is it obvious that I love creating flowers from unexpected materials?Â Becky from the fab Beetlegirl Design blog shows us how to create tulle blossoms that are perfect for adorning the branches in your centerpieces (or for adding faux flowers to your invites…Â or to dress up a plain shawl…Â or in a DIY headpiece…)!
Faux vs. Fresh – Who knew?
While doing a little registry shopping recently, I was floored to see such gorgeous silk flowers at Pottery Barn (of all places)! My previous experience with silks has been less than impressive, but it appears that they’ve come quite a long way in recent years!

A DIY wedding: Part 3, quasi-DIY adventures
Yesterday I featured some of our favorite DIY details from our wedding. Today, Iâ€™m focusing on our â€œquasi-DIYâ€ details â€“ projects that we assembled but didnâ€™t make or used vintage items, but that we still count as DIY since we procured all the pieces. Just after we decided to have a vintage- and internationally-inspired wedding, I came across vintage-reproduction globes from Anthropologie that we knew would be great as reception centerpieces.

Today, we’re featuring a DIY centerpiece created by BloomsByTheBox.com that proves that vase selection and a bit of floral dye can create expensive-looking arrangements on a tight budget.
Make Your Own Modern Victorian Silverware
It’s becoming very common to see repurposed vintage flatware making an appearance, (even Anthropologie sells sets now!) but building and designing your own collection is of course more fun. Today we’re going to use multi-surface paint and silver/gold leaf to create our very own gorgeous custom silverware set!
