FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS™ | July 16 | A free printable, DIY place cards, DIY pastel glass floral arrangements, honeyed tea spoons, ice cream photo shoot, and my favorite bride of the week!

↑ Love that?  Yeah, me too.  A LOT.  Read on for details...


I’m jumping right into the Finds, today, because I have two little munchkins nipping at my heels.  Being an Aunt is rough business.  (:

Love these honeyed teaspoons I saw on my girl Kim’s site, Bride Goggles!  They are sooooo cute and I want 1000.  Thanks for this amazing find, Kim!  And I’m still waiting with baited breath to see your dress!

I’ve got two from Once Wed, today, because I just couldn’t part with either of them.  The first is the simplest, most adorable little DIY wedding place cards project one could possibly take on, in fact it’s hardly even a project, it’s so easy.  Pair it with the loveliest, most darling, most colorful pastelly flower arrangements, and you’ve got yourself a wedding.  Check it:

I’m seriously crushing on this next find from the same place.  This gorgeous bride went with a statement necklace that renders her a style maven in my book.  Check out the neck action here:

And yes, I love her shoes and I know most of you do, too.  Here they are if you wanna see them up close.

One more, ’cause I’m not over this yet.

Listen, whether or not you like statement necklaces, you have GOT to respect that girl’s style.  How fabulous is she?  HOW?!!  It’s such a risk to take – she wore it in practically ALL of her wedding photos.  And that woulda sucked bowls if it wasn’t the most awesome possible look for her on that day.  Phew.

Candy bar wrapper printable time!  Thank you, Maddy, of The Inspired Bride.  You’re always… what’s the word… I can’t think of it.  … Wait what’d you say?  “Inspiring?”  Hmm, no, that can’t be it.  I’m sure I’ll think of it later.

Here’s what the printable looks like (you’ll need to download the pdf at the very end of Maddy’s post if you want to put this to use):

By the way, Maddy and her man are hard at work redesigning their new house, which is so freaking awesome on myriad levels.  I am so excited to see how it all turns out.  Good luck with the process, my dear!

Love ice cream trucks?  Love wedding shoots?  Perfect.  Check out my fave from this week, courtesy of the Wedding Chicks:

If you live in New York, you likely see these ice cream trucks every day.  But tell me, did you ever realize how fabulous they could look in your wedding photos?  I certainly didn’t.

xoxo!  – Alison

    I am OBSESSED with ice cream trucks. They come around the Super Burbs all the time and I am the only adult waiting in line – but there is no shame in my game.

    Love all of your finds missy – as always, my favorite find is you! xoxo

    When you order 1000 honey spoons, go ahead and double that order so I can also have 1000! Those are SO fantastic I think I would use them for EVERYTHING.

    LOL, you know how some people have clown phobias? I have Ice cream truck phobias. And when I scrolled through other reader comments I suddenly felt really lame. The couple in the ice cream shot looks fantastic though.

    I am in love with the statement necklace of the first bride though. Super cool.
