Want to have an outdoor party, but the weather’s lousy? NO PROBLEM. Here’s a hack… sort of.
One of the most coveted styles of party these days remains the outdoorsy, woodsy, greeny, lush and naturey look (I definitely just made up some words but whatever). That usually means: wood elements, at LEAST a few succulents because SUCCULENTS ARE EVERYTHING, other types of plant life, generally a rustic vibe and – because who doesn’t love it – a bit of gold speckled throughout. Not too much, because that’s tacky. But just enough. By the way I might have thrown in a bit too much gold. Hopefully it’s not tacky, though. Sorry I LOVE GOLD.
Featured in today’s shoot are some sharp mini champagne bottles, because – cool giveaway alert - Freixenet is doing a giveaway of their adorably packaged champagne bottles. Would you like to win 125 beautiful little mini bottles of Freixenet bubbly, plus a ginormous Memory Magnum bottle as well, to use on your wedding day, all for the low low price of free? The appropriate answer is who wouldn’t. So yeah if you’d like a shot at winning one of six of these prize packages, pop over to Freixenet’s All Love Sparkles sweepstakes, which is taking place over on their facebook page.
Now, as I was saying — while we’d all like to have a lovely little garden party outside, sometimes that just doesn’t work out. Depending on where you live, it’s possible your only viable option for parties may be indoors! In other cases, the weather for an entire week leading up to your party day could be full of sunshiney rays, and then BAM, rain all day. Huge bummer.
Not so fast. It doesn’t have to be a bummer! I decided for this shoot I’d show you guys how to have that coveted outside garden party look, indoors, if the weather just isn’t cooperating. Stupid weather, doesn’t it know who you ARE? :)
I really wanted to show you that you can still have the garden party of your dreams, even on the dreariest of days! I DIY’d a crapload of the things you’re about to see, like these terrariums in lightbulbs for example:
… so lemme know if you’d like me to share how to at some point later on the blog. Aright, to the pictures…
Yes, that’s a Pez dispenser spray-painted gold. Because why not?
That little golden cake is an eraser! Just another little favor for your bridesmaids to take home.
Lovely little botanical-inspired notebooks from Rifle Paper Co., again, for your lucky bridesmaids to take home!
Watch out, btw, if you decide to introduce wildlife in your indoor styling… they may steal your treats..
