DIY THIS COLOURFUL GEOMETRIC SEATING PLAN

This month we teamed up with B&Q on their #mystatementwall campaign where we got to share our favourite colourful and statement walls over on our instagram and we also got to create a canvas of what we envisioned a statement wall of our own would look like! I chose to use blues, oranges, pinks, purples and yellow to create this geometric piece and loved the results! Afterwards I was thinking, what can | do with this canvas now? And it hit me that it would make an awesome seating plan! Here’s how to create your own geometric table plan…

YOU WILL  NEED:

A white canvas // Paints in the colours of your choice // Paintbrushes // Frog tape // Faux flowers (or real flowers if you prefer) // A glue gun // Black vinyl // White vinyl // Cricut Machine* // Place names (These can be from your stationer, printed out at home or handwritten if you’ve got lovely hand writing) // Craft glue //

*You don’t necessarily NEED a Cricut with black and white vinyl for this project, you can always get some vinyl letters or stickers if you prefer to create the words ‘seating plan’ at the top

A SCRUMPTIOUSLY SWEET MOD INSPIRED ICE CREAM BRIDAL SHOWER

Stylist Kristin Rapisardi of Lustre Theory is blowing our minds right now with her version of a 60’s Mod ice cream bridal shower! The fact that it combines amazing colors, macaron ice cream sandwiches and everyone’s favorite vintage era, equals only one thing? Pure magic of course with a cherry on top!

Kristin used color to define this classic look. Bright, bold color is splayed in geometric patterns and vintage influence and focuses on color blocking, hints of bright yellow, orange, pink, and pastels.

Not wanting to copy the well known Twiggy style, the team added a more playful approach to makeup and the use of color. Different elements of the 60’s hair and makeup trends were chosen for the models, voluminous hair, lots of eyeliner and large bright accessories.

Scroll on through for tonnes of super sweet inspiration and even more details on how you could get this look for yourself…
