FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS™ | August 13 | DIY succulent place cards, ruffled bridesmaid dresses, a ruffled love bird cake, simple decor, a new guestbook idea, a stained glass cake, cookies, cool wedding invites…

Happy Friday, my little buttermilk pancakes!  I’m gonna jump right into it if you don’t mind, ’cause I’ve got a lot of ‘em today… for example:

I’m lovin’ on those bridesmaid dresses, aren’t you?  They’re by Cooper by Courtney if you love ‘em, too.

All the decor involved in my wedding obsession of the week, which was featured here on Style Me Pretty, makes me go insane with joy over the beauty one can achieve by keeping things light and simple.

Oohhh, Speaking of Style Me Pretty, my next guest blog over there is coming up on Monday!  Get psyched – it’s a subtle, simple, slightly pastel, beautifully decorated wonderland.  And it was shot by a couple of my favorite photographers in the whole wide world.  So yeah, I’m kinda looking forward to you guys seeing it.

Next up, a freaking RUFFLED CAKE!!!

AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!  Thank you, Melissa, for bringing the above to my face!

These wooden save the date and wedding invitations kind of rule, in my opinion.

I AM OBSESSED with the decor going on in this wedding guest blogged by Sofia of Brancoprata for Love and Lavender.  Sofia, darling, you are brilliant.

Sofia had the idea to use the pillows as the couple’s “guest book;” guests would pin their notes the pillows!!!

The decor just blows my mind.  So pink, but not TOO pink.  Which rules.  FYI, roses, peonies and pink dahlias made up the floral decor.  What a heavenly triumvirate of floral power!

Speaking of Brancoprata, I found these amaze-cakes on Sofia’s blog on Monday and FREAKED OUT over the stained glass one.  They’re Magpie’s Cakes, and I’m madly in love.

* * *

Loooooooove these cookies my girl Ez baked up and featured on her fabulous blog, Creature Comforts.  I love her dearly, and this doesn’t hurt matters.

* * *

I am in lust with the wedding decor going on in this wedding I saw featured on my girl Megan’s blog, Glamour and Grace.  Light and lovely stuff, eh?

What a dreamy winter wedding!  I’m a fan.

And finally, a DIY project you KNOW I love.  Presenting:

Succulent Place Cards, by the Wedding Chicks!

Le sigh.


Aright, so, what do you think of today Finds?  Have any favorites?  Would you use any of these ideas in your wedding?  Chime in!

    So many gorgeous finds! I love the ruffle cake and the one that looks like stained glass. And the succulents are just brilliant — I adore when people give a practical “take me home” gift instead of a plastic Cinderella horse and carriage.

    I love those bridesmaids dresses. I clicked on the link (cooperbycourtney) but I can’t find the dresses. I would love to purchase them for my wedding. Any ideas on how I can find out more about those dresses?

    Thanks!

    But, competitiveness and the hand of the us government have caused
    their rates to be brought down by most lenders.

    Whilst they can be beneficial, consistently taking out loans can become hard within the long haul.
