Christmas DIY: How To Make A Vibrant Garland – A Collaboration with Interflora

Party Brights Garland Final

Remember last week we were talking about switching up those classic Christmas colours for something a little more bright? Well our ‘Merry & Bright’ inspiration board was such a success that we just know you’re going to love this beautiful Christmas garland DIY! So If you simply cannot face unpacking those same old gold, red and green Christmas decorations again this year, why not plan a departure from the traditional and lift your mood with a bold and beautiful colour scheme instead? Vibrant, fun and fabulously festive, a jewel-coloured scheme will take you from Christmas into the New Year party season. Whether positioned pride of place on your mantelpiece or used to decorate a bannister, it’s sure to be a cheery sight all throughout the Christmas period!

Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: A Mexican Adventure

Hola from Mexico!

 ♥  ♥  

I know im getting around a bit, what with Italy and all, but can you blame me? England’s summer pretty much didn’t exist this year!

Instead of doing a standard Mexican destination wedding board this week, I wanted to bring you something that reflects the culture of this beautiful country, something full of colour and tradition.

You have a lot of options when it comes to a ‘Mexican colour scheme’, generally you could throw a huge selection of colours together and it would work. Like the Mexican bride’s dress above ’embracing a riot of romantic color’.

Alternatively, you could theme your wedding around the colour scheme of red, white & green like the Mexican flag, or go for a scheme with an array of blues, red, yellow & pink like featured below.

It doesn’t just stop at the colour scheme though! A Mexican themed wedding isn’t complete without the delicious cuisine & music from the mariachi! Of course, there are lots of Mexican traditions too and if you’d like to include some of these in your wedding then you can read about them here.

See the board below for more Mexican inspiration!


Wednesday Wedding Inspiration: Indian Summer Wedding

We know summer isn’t ‘officially’ here yet but we couldn’t help feeling the summer love when looking at these gorgeous pictures from several Indian Summer Weddings!

Colour is the first thing that stands out at an Indian wedding, next to beautiful traditions & lots of dancing! Here we have put together an inspiration board to emphasize how visually stunning these types of weddings are.
