LIGHT UP YOUR WEDDING | Creative ways to decorate your setting with light…

I came down to get some coffee, but before I could open the door, my three-year-old nephew swung it out in my direction.  He looked me dead in the eye, held out a closed fist, and then opened it to release a single doggy bone puzzle piece… which fell at my feet.  No words were expressed.  He then retreated behind the door from whence he came.

Do you think he’s trying to tell me something?

I love light.  And I adore finding unique and gorgeous ways to bring it into my life.  {Continue reading…}

WEDDING DECOR ❦ Mini Lustre Vases, Ice White Lights, Writable Napkin Tags + More Little Things!

Many of us want our weddings to have some kind of fairytale-ness to them.  Some want a lot, others want a little, but I think it’s safe to say that we want to set the scene properly for a dreamy escape into our new lives of loving one another forever.  And in my opinion, that rocks.  So, when I think of setting that scene, I think details.  Details, details, details.  And more details.  Because who doesn’t love details?  As they say, it’s the little things that show that you care.  And I’m thinking you care about your wedding day.  So, what do I think of first?  Without a doubt, lighting…

Ice White LED Tree Lights

Yeah, that’s what I call a fairytale setting.


If it made sense for my home to decorate every room with a handful of these, I would.  But it doesn’t make sense to do that.  However, it DOES make sense to decorate your entire wedding with these babies.  And I insist that you do it (if you want to, that is… no pressure).

Lustre Vases


And given the trends we’ve been observing, I think I’d be remiss if I didn’t throw in a little chalkboard inspired lovin’ – form of: zinc place tags for your guests’ napkins!!!  Yes, OMG is right!!!  How much do you love these things?!  Is it as much as I do?  Because I honestly don’t know if that’s possible.

And these, well I just can’t get over how cute these would look in photos.  Not to mention how official it would make things.  If you’re thinking of a school-related theme for your big day, may I introduce you to the perfect little finishing touch?

Old School Wedding Badges


At first I kind of pooh-poohed these mini chocolates, but they grew on me quickly and with force.  With a simple, clean palette based in white or ivory, these bite-size squares of milk chocolate wrapped in silver foil and a white outer sleeve are the ideal way to please the palates of your guests.

I’m sorry, I just think these little vase munchkins are frikin’ adorable, so I had to include them.  Aren’t they frikin’ adorable?  They’re frikin’ adorable.

(Look at the wittle hole for the wittle tiny fwowah.  Awwwwww!!)


This jar = phenomenal.  I am in awe of it and want ten.  This is just PERFECT if you’re looking for a brilliant way to light your intimate backyard/outdoor wedding.

My Mom adoooooores these confetti boxes.  She can stare at them for minutes and, as if she were starring in an infomercial, talk up their attributes in a way that’ll tempt you to slap down your child’s tuition money just to get your hands on them.  But I must say, they are quite spectacular.  Really, what’s better than a box full of ready-to-go ivory colored confetti cones, filled with a mixture of delicate lilac, ivory blue and pink delphinium petals?  Not much, if you ask my mother.

Hope you enjoyed these picks!  I’ve got to admit, they were super fun to pick out.  Though it was a biotch not to buy everything as I went along.  I think I may own several of those little vases before the day is through.  Seriously.

By the way, if you did fancy those picks, I suggest you check out some more!
