FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS™ | July 23 | bridesmaid clutch bouquets, DIY love notes, white peonies, bridal shower invitations, color inspiration, wedding donuts…

* * *

Happy Friday, everybody!  How are y’all doing today?  I hope well!  The weekend begins soon and I’m rarin’ to go.  We’re going dancing again tonight (salsa, if I haven’t shared that yet) and I couldn’t be more psyched about it.  Granted, we haven’t practiced enough AT ALL, but that’s more my fault than his, because he’s certainly tried to get me to do a few steps here and there.  The thing is, it’s always in public, in front of other people.  That might sound silly, but those other people aren’t also dancing, like us.  They’re shopping for clothes at the mall, or pumping gas, or searching for home decorating supplies at Restoration Hardware, or some other everyday activity monotonous enough to make a young couple dancing a hugely eye-catching deal.  I usually have enough cojones to do a few steps before I crumble into a ball of giggling embarrassment.  I’m working on it.

Anyway, I saw Inception with my siblings/the boy this past weekend.  Let me tell you something: see it in IMAX because it will rule your face.  This movie was action-packed, in a no-time-to-breathe-because-this-movie-is-constantly-action-packed sort of way, so if you like breathing and generally appreciate arcs in your story line, then this might not be the perfect flick for you.  But, on the other hand, if you like things that are awesome, then forget that last thing and go see Inception.  Wheeeee!  Loved it.  The guy seated next to us had part of his butt on my honey’s seat and he kept accidentally moonlanding with my guy, because he was so wholly on edge the whole time that he was watching the movie sideways, at-the-ready to hide his face (which had a permanent look of alarm the ENTIRE TIME).  He had to be about 35.  Awesome.

Ok, let’s get to the freaking Finds already, right?

See that gorgeous garden tea party bridal shower invitation suite up top?  Well I found that on Once Wed, and I can’t stop staring at it with sheer adoration.  Here’s more to ogle at:

Love this next find.  It’s just a little straight-up color inspiration.  But it got a hold of me and I had to share it with you.

Napa Valley Wedding Full of Color via Style Me Pretty

Obsessing over this Elva Fields necklace I found on Luna and Chloe Weddings.  OBSESSING.  She suggests it for a rustic, country or garden wedding.  I concur.  But I’d actually go even farther and suggest wearing it for anything, anywhere.  Because me loves it long time.

Ok, here’s an idea I found over on Lydia’s lovely blog, Ever Ours, and it ROCKED MY SOCKS STRAIGHT OFF MY FEETS.

Bridesmaid clutch bouquets!!!!  AAAAHHHH SO AWESOME!!!!

Ok, you guys know I love peony bouquets, right?  Right, I know, everybody loves them.  Old news.  But I never get sick of seeing them in action, and I’ve just gotta show you this one, which I found on Megan’s lovely blog, Forget Me Knot Weddings:

So, umm, I’m hearing that in addition to our beloved cuppie-cakes, donuts are an up-and-coming dessert option for weddings?  Well, maybe not, it definitely sounds weird, but when you see them all prettied-up by Cannelle et Vanille, it’s hard to resist falling in love.  Thanks Sofia, for bringing these to my attention!

And last but not least, this DIY wedding lovenote created by Amy of Eat Drink Chic for Once Wed totally captured my heart.

Le sigh.


So, got any favorites?

    Love those clutch bouquets! The doughnuts are a favorite, too – our clients have been passing those out on trays to guests as midnight snacks since Krispy Kreme became a “thing.” Makes for the perfect snack during a night of indulging! :)
