Friday’s Favorites: Etsy Treasuries inspired by this week’s posts: Fairies, Goths, Bouts and Toppers that are nom!

TGIF! Definitely looking forward to the weekend. Got some plans for tomorrow that will hopefully include a new tattoo. I’ll be sure to post it if all works out.

This week’s favorites presents a small change to the format. Instead of always doing exactly what was covered in the blog, Friday’s Favorites will be inspired by the week’s blog posts. For instance, Monday was all about they myriad of alternative bouquets available, but it’s Friday’s Favorites counterpart is about alternative boutonniers. I hope you enjoy the change and all of these great Etsy finds!

Stunner Thursday: Fairy Bridal Style From Head to Toe

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,
Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,
Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.” -Oberon, by William Shakespeare, Midsummer Night’s Dream

No other piece of literature or theatre quite captures the essense of the fairy real like Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream.” I have adored it since the first time I saw it performed as a middle schooler. From that moment on, I was fascinated by all things fairy and at nearly forty, I still am.

So, if you are looking for some Midsummer Night’s Dream wedding inspiration or are planning a fairy themed wedding, I have some gorgeous gowns, headpieces, makeup ideas, wings, and shoes to inspire you. Let your imagination run wild and I hope you find some ideas for your own fairy inspired wedding fete.

Friday’s Favorites: Unique place cards, Hair fortification, Nouveau theme, and not so Bridal Gowns

I’m a bit loopy on pain meds today as I hurt my knee yesterday. Nothing reminds you that you’re getting older like hurting yourself getting up from a chair…lol. So, commentary today is going to be a bit sparse. Here is a collection of amazing Etsy finds based on this week’s posts. It so hard to choose a few when there are so many handmade and vintage shops all in one spot. Have a fab weekend all!

Monday’s Finding: Springtime Party Fun For The Kiddos

On this cold and blustery Colorado morning, I’m looking forward to the beginning of Spring when the first green shoots pop their heads out of the earth to welcome life once more. I know, I’m being way too philosophical for a Monday morning, especially when I haven’t thrown some coffee down my gullet. 🙂

Today’s Monday’s Finding is for the kiddos. From planting lollipop seeds to a Springtime scavenger hunt, here are some fun party activities sure to make celebrating Spring lots of fun for your little ones.

Top row (l to r):
A new Easter tradition: Magic Jelly Beans
Baa Baa Yum Yums: Black and white sheep treats
Edible crudite: Veggie flower bouquets

Middle row (l to r):
Flower Fairies: Fairy Craft
For the birds: Nesting bag
Sweet nest: “Tweet” nest

Bottom row (l to r):
Searching for Spring: Springtime scavenger hunt
Easter Egg Heads: Breakfast and a craft all in one
Seed Starters: Recycle your paper and feed the bees

I hope you and your littlest party guests have a great time with these great Springtime activities!

Spring Fun For Kiddos

Friday’s Favorites: Treasuries: Peach and Purple Watercolor; Woodland Fairy

Whew! Made it through another week. I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to the weekend. I’ll be honest, I’m really looking forward to sleeping in whether it be the weekend or not.

This week’s treasuries reflect Wedding Wednesday’s Peach and Purple color palette and yesterday’s Fairy Woodland inspiration boards. So many great Etsy finds for these two themes. My favorite? The die cut Dresden foil numbers that are perfect for celebrating your kiddo’s birthday or even as table numbers for a magical fairy woodland fete.

Looking for a sneak peek in to this year’s Etsy Virtual Bridal Show? Like Belle Memorie on Facebook for exclusive peeks in to this year’s amazing shops.

Have a great weekend!

Theme Thursday: Fairy Woodland Magic!

There is no denying that Woodland themes are very “in” right now and the variations of the theme are full of magical possibilities. Today’s Theme Thursday is ripe with pixie dust and woodland charm. Imagine your little fairy princess or prince stepping in to their own little woodland grove to celebrate their special day! Key elements: cute little woodland animals, glitter, trees, acorns, toadstools, and fairy doors adorning a garden or forest setting.

Here’s a bit of fairy woodland inspiration to help you along your way in making the magic of nature come alive for your little one.

Fairy Woodland Party

Wedding Wednesday: Wedded Woodland

Today’s Wedding Wednesday is all about the love of nature and specifically the lush wooded forests that have provided us with legends of gnomes, fairies and other nature spirits. It’s the way light filters through the canopy both shading and illuminating nature’s wonder. Today I have a lovely inspiration board for you that shows how you can capture the magic of nature on your special day. Don’t live near woodland areas? The venue shown is actually a Marriott hotel, not a clearing in the forest. I hope you enjoy the inspiration board as well as the Etsy treasury to help you in your find of woodland treasures.
