We hope you’ve all had the best weekend and if this is your first time visiting the new look site, we hope you have enjoyed what you have seen so far! Our love for colour is no secret, given the number of bright, bold DIY’s wedding’s and Styled shoots we share on our site. And today is no different, as we are super excited to share these jeweled geometric wedding decor ideas with you. Here’s a couple of quick tips for recreating this look for yourself.

First, take inspiration from your venue and work with the colours of the room. Compliment these with other bright and bold tones to make your decor really pop.

Second, if you want to know how to make those glittered champagne glasses all you need to do is get your own plain glasses (these were less than 50p each!) add PVA glue to the base and then sprinkled with glitter. They aren’t dishwasher safe but certainly look pretty and add a little bit of extra sparkle! Super simple, effective and cheap!

DIY Glitter ICe Cubes Edible Fun Party Sparkle Drinks Cocktail Accessories_-1

Hey there! I, Holly, am not afraid of glitter. While I try not to go overboard, I’m not afraid to make a mess and use it in my craft projects and even some of my baked goods. Edible glitter is the perfect topping for cakes, cake pops, chocolate candies and so much more to add color and sparkle. That’s when I thought, I just need a way to add glitter to my drinks now! Edible glitter ice cubes were the answer to adding some flair to any drink without changing the taste.

Because edible glitter is essentially pure sugar, simply be aware that, depending on the amount used, it may increase the sweetness of your drink. I used my favorite silicone gem mold to create the ice cubes and then added the sugar. When added to liquid, the edible glitter slowly melts and changes the color of the liquid, which creates a pretty effect when using multiple colors. Because the glitter dissolves in liquid, it’s important to wait to add the glitter until after the water has frozen into ice. Otherwise, you’ll have colored ice cubes that are no longer glittery.

YOU WILL NEED:

If you’ve been reading Bespoke Bride since August you would have seen the beautiful Confetti Bucket DIY in collab with Shropshire Petals! I absolutely adored making that ice bucket and loved the way it turned out so much that I wanted to try and recreate one with a Christmas spin! An ice bucket that would be the perfect centre piece for any table and really show off the glitz and glam of Christmas! This year, in our house, the festive theme is metallics so I really wanted my ice bucket to match and include lots of golds, coppers and bronze shades! Let’s get going shall we?

I love socks, especially the warm and cosy kind but most of all socks that look cute are the best! I feel like now, more than ever socks are becoming a really big thing in fashion (we’re looking at you Happy Socks!) and I thought it would be super fun to design a couple of pairs this year!

DIY SNOW GLOBE FAVOURS

If you’re having a festive shindig and want to create some fun favours to match then why not make your own snow globes that each of your guests can take home? They couldn’t be easier to make and would look super pretty on all the tables! We’ve used flamingos in ours but you could add whatever plastic animals you can find. Unicorn snow globes would be equally as amazing!

Also, if you’re eyeing up that gorgeous sequin tablecloth in the photos it’s from Pudding Bridge! SO pretty right?!

YOU WILL NEED:

Jars // Super Glue // Glycerin // Plastic flamingos (or other plastic animals!) // Glitter // Sequins // Small disco balls or other embellishments // White tack (optional)

Firstly you’ll want to glue your flamingos to the inside of the lid of your jar, along with any other decorative items you want to pop in there.

DIY Glitter Station Wedding Make Your own sparkle station glitter face makeup festival_-11

This year when I went to Glastonbury I felt like every other person I walked past had glitter done amazingly all over their faces and I wanted me some of that sparkle action! I found a little glitter station that had a bunch of different coloured glitters and a pot of vaseline and a lovely lady put a bunch of it all around my eyes. It was SO easy guys and I couldn’t help but think how awesome it would be to have sparkle stations at weddings, especially festival ones! I love the idea of your guests being able to get all glittery! How epic would the photos be?! Here’s how you can make your own…
