Trendspotting: Farm Friendly

Last year we saw many couples include their dogs in their wedding and engagement photos – that’s nothing new. Lately, however, I’m starting to notice a mini trend towards including other four-legged, furry or feathered creatures as well. Donkeys and chickens and monkeys, oh my!

A fun idea for a rustic wedding, don’t you think?

Fancy This...

Ladies of Wonderland

March 26, 2010

I love these photos of Helena Bonham Carter featured on the Guardian UK website last month. That mad hat and that ruffled trench are both fabulous!

By the way, after mentioning my desire to see Alice in Wonderland a few weeks ago, I forgot to let you know that I did indeed take a trip down the rabbit hole. I saw it opening weekend and I loved it! It was just as quirky and visually stunning as I expected it would be. The Red Queen was the quirkiest of the lot and I thought Helena Bonham Carter played her to perfection. I also thought Anne Hathaway was quite hilarious as the White Queen with all her ridiculous sashay-ing around.

Here’s a peek at the impeccably-styled ladies of Wonderland…

I also couldn’t help but notice what a fashionista Alice was. All her outfits rocked… including this blue off-the-shoulder ruffled number above… sure beats the pale blue pinafore of Alices past, no?

If you’re in the mood to get swept away by a fairytale, definitely check out the movie… I think you’ll enjoy it! If you’ve seen it already, let me know what you think!

Wedding Inspiration

Spring Bridal Shower

March 25, 2010

I’ve decided to change things up a bit with this inspiration board. Rather than wedding inspiration, this board is geared towards a pre-wedding event – like an initmate engagement party or bridal shower.

I’m thinking a lovely Sunday brunch with a fresh, airy color palette. Design details could include seaglass bottles as vases, depression glass dessert dishes, vintage clip-on earrings for placecard holders (a nifty idea found here) and stacks of vintage books as part of the centerpiece arrangements. So lovely, girly and perfect for spring!
