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!

Monday’s Finding: Wheat Wedding Details

Before I delve in to today’s post, I want to honor a man who I greatly admire and have been inspired by in my personal life: Russell Means. He passed this morning after a battle with throat cancer on his ranch in South Dakota with his family by his side. He is walking with the Great Spirit and his ancestors now. Such a great man and an inspiration. May the work he did here on earth blossom and lead to the restoration and preservation of indigenous culture.

Today’s finding is all about the beauty and symbolism of wheat as wedding details and decor. What I love about wheat is that it has a long tradition of celebrating the Fall season without being too kitschy and theme oriented as well as being symbolic of the fruition of love and prosperity. It was even tucked in to a bride’s veil to ensure the couple’s ability to have children and to thrive financially. It’s golden hue and rough texture is perfect for a vintage or rustic wedding, particularly for a barn, ranch, or field wedding venue. Here are some beautiful examples of wheat wedding details perfect for your Fall wedding:

Friday’s Favorites: Fabulous Fall Finds for Fabulous Fall Entertaining

This week’s Friday’s Favorites features some great Etsy finds for your fall decorating and entertaining. I know the stores are now full of Christmas decor, but let us not forget Thanksgiving and the Fall harvest, which often start the holiday social season. Take some time to slow down and enjoy the Autumn colors, the blowing leaves, and all the goodness the pumpkin harvest brings us. Decorate your home for an autumnal fete just as you would for Christmas, paying special attention to that which you are grateful for. In doing so, think of individual artisans and their unique wares as opposed to the plastic mass marketed stuff in setting up your decor. Take care all and stay tuned today for more Fabulous Fall Finds.

Wedding Wednesday: Black and White Glamtastic Halloween

While I sit here in my non-air-conditioned home, I await my most favorite time of the year: Fall. For me, Fall brings about a respite from the dog days of summer and this year is no exception. I grow tired of the daily 90 degree plus temperatures, unusual for Denver. I long to see nature prepare for it’s winter sleep. I want to see the aspens change and most of all: Halloween.

Halloween and Dia de los Muertos are my favorite holidays. I grew up in San Diego and my love of the Day of the Dead stems from the vivid culture in places like Old Town and Bonita. I think it was as a child being surrounded by the normalcy of death and the promise of renewal that comes from the waning time of year is where my love of skulls and skeletons developed.

Today I wanted to share with you a different sort of Halloween/Dia de los Muertos/Fall influenced wedding with a color palette influenced by Kim Kardashian’s (groan, I know…I know) black and white color scheme. I hope you are inspired to go a little glam and outside the box in terms of styling a Fall wedding. It doesn’t have to be your typical orange, brown, and yellow for a beautiful Fall fete.

B&W Wedding Wednesday

Favorite Fall Bouquets- Finally!

My apologies for such a late post. I was having some issues with WordPress today. I’ve been a bit under the weather today, so I thought I would go for a simple post on some of my favorite Fall bouquets. I love the use of non-traditional elements that are becoming trends in the floral industry such as the use of kale and artichokes. Here is a little bit of Fall inspiration:

Happy Halloween, Samhain, and Dia de los Muertos

I wanted to send out a little inspiration for those who are having or want to have a fall holiday centered wedding. The first set is a traditional orange and black Halloween, the next two sets I have published before, but figured they could use some posting again: white and green pumpkins and a Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) theme.
