I can’t believe it’s been over two weeks since I came back from Croatia, I spent a week in this beautiful country and ticked a couple of places of my ‘to see’ list whilst I was there! If you’re planning a trip here anytime soon, or maybe you’re thinking of visiting Croatia for your honeymoon or are simply dreaming up new pretty place to explore in the future then be sure to pin this page to your travel board for future use! I’m going to be sharing places to visit, where we stayed, what to eat, my favourite moments and a few helpful tips and tricks!
VISIT IN SPLIT
Hands down my favourite day of the whole trip was when we took a day trip to Krka national park. This park is full of these insanely gorgeous natural waterfalls that you can gawk over! (Actually if you go in the summer months you can swim in them!) we booked our tour with a company called Splitlicious and I couldn’t recommend them enough! We got picked up in a mini bus around 8am in the morning and headed to Krka, it takes about 40 minutes to walk around the entire park and there’s a lovely little restaurant that over looks the waterfalls where we ate lunch.Details
A lot of newlyweds say to us that once their wedding was over they felt a little sad that they didn’t have any more projects to get stuck into and this made us think about all the just married DIYs that could be made once you’ve tied the knot to keep the spirit of your special day going! Say hello to the just married door mat! It’s the perfect way to let the world know that you’re celebrating and is a super fun and easy craft that you can make after your wedding! If you like, you could even make it before hand and have it ready, or I love the idea of one of the bridesmaids making one and surprising the bride and groom with it once they get home! How cute would that be?! Here’s how to make your own…
YOU WILL NEED:
A door mat // Spraint paint in the colours of your choice (we used Rustoleum Candy Pink and Rustoleum Berry Pink) // Rustoleum Crystal Clear Protective Coat // A Cricut machine* // Just Married Template** // Cardstock // tape // newspaper //
*If you don’t have a Cricut then fret not! You can still create the DIY, you’ll just need to draw the stencil onto card using a ruler and pencil, then cut out the pieces using a stanley knife
**We’ve included the Just Married template above, but if you’re using a bigger size mat (like me) you’ll probably need to cut out the ‘JUST’ first on one piece of card, followed by ‘MAR’ and then ‘RIED’ also on separate pieces of card. The templates for these are here: ‘JUST‘ , ‘MAR‘ , ‘RIED‘
Either upload the templates to the Cricut design space and set your machine to cut out the card stock or as said above, cut out the stencils by free hand.
Once everything is cut out you’ll want to tape the templates down to the mat, making sure that they’re secure. I used double sided tape to stick the middle of the A’s, D’s, etc down.Details
Anyone else got that Friday feeling? I feel like this week has absolutely flown by, we’ve been really busy (in a great way) but I am super excited to see the weekend ahead! If you’re celebrating something tonight or tomorrow, or perhaps you’ve got a bridal shower or bachelorette / hen party coming up then today’s DIY is for you! We’ve just released a bunch of these fun rainbow printable cup wrappers to transform your table tops!
They’re so easy to make, simply download the files here (or below) and print them out onto white paper. Next, cut them out and wrap them around a bunch of paper cups, then all you need to is glue the wrappers in place. You’ll instantly update the look of the table decor with a punch of bright colour and you can guarantee your gal pals will love the fun slogans on the front!
We’re pretty sure the slogans are a recipe to the perfect party! Dance, smile, enjoy, drink, talk & laugh! Sounds like a pretty fun get together to me! Team our cups with some pretty straws and a bunch of delicious cocktails and we know you’re onto a winner! (bonus points if you make colourful cocktails to match!) We’ve got some great cocktail ideas you can check out here too!Details
Flower crowns are one of my favourite accessories not only when it comes to weddings but also festivals (and every day life!) whether they’re real flowers, faux flowers or paper flowers I’m seriously obsessed, and all the better when the colours are as bright and bold as this DIY flower crown we’re sharing with you today! Holly from Club Crafted is going to demonstrate how fun making a crown like this is, they would look so adorable on little flower girls or even a great craft to do at a bridal shower! Over to Holly…
When I, Holly, set out to make paper flower crowns, I struggled with how to make flowers that were both simple to make and that would not appear cheesy or childish. After trying out a few different flower designs, I have two styles of flowers to share (with a template!) to make this project as easy as possible for you but still feel elegant, and once put together, these flower crowns are perfect for a bridal shower project or any other type of event you want to celebrate.
I’ll warn you, making these crowns is fun but will be a long process. Just use a variety of your favorite spring colored paper and start cutting! Once all of the pieces are cut and curled, the gluing is a piece of cake. If you have a cutting machine, such as a Cricut or Silhouette, you can upload these PNG templates to cut for you. Otherwise, note that cutting by hand may take some time to cut enough flowers to fill the crown. There are two types of flowers: large individual petal flowers and smaller one-piece flowers.
YOU WILL NEED:
Coloured cardstock, including green for leaves // White cardstock // Scissors // Glue gun and glue sticks // Paper flower templates //
If cutting by hand, print the paper flower templates in your desired size and use them as templates to cut out flowers from the colored cardstock. The one-piece flowers should be about 4 inches wide. The individual petal flowers should be about 2 inches wide for the large petals and 1.5 inch wide for the small petals (5 large, 5 small per flower).
Note, cut some petal shapes out of green paper for leaves and cut the comb-looking pieces out of a yellow or similar color to be the middles of the flowers.Details
I love fun table names as much as the next gal but sometimes it’s just easier to have table numbers and if you’re thinking of having numbers instead of names then do not worry because that doesn’t mean that they’re going to be boring! Today’s DIY is all about these fun spray painted gradient table…Details

Today’s DIY is all about the fun factor! This pom pom veil would be perfect to make for a bride to be ready for that hen party or bridal shower!
Forget the cheesy sash’s and tiaras why not upgrade a veil into something far more fun and modern?! It’s no secret that pom poms are everywhere right now and we love the idea of incorporating them into a little bit of wedding fashion! (Especially when they’re as bright and colourful as these!)
And don’t get me wrong we still think this would look kick ass on a bride for her wedding day too! It’s beyond cute and the best news is that it really couldn’t be easier to make plus you only need a few items…
YOU WILL NEED:
A Veil // Pom Poms // A Glue Gun //
Lay out your veil onto the floor and place the pom poms where you want them. I place three onto the clip and then varied the rest throughout the veil making sure that no two pom poms of the same colour were too close to each other.
