Green & Gold Spring Wedding Inspiration

Simple Spring Centerpiece and table arrangement

Spring Centerpiece and table Arrangement

We love nothing more than the chance to collaborate on styled wedding inspiration shoots with some of our favorite vendors. In this design, bold greenery against a white and black table setting adds a pop of color to this beautiful arrangement. Some extra little green and gold accents really bring out the fresh feelings of springtime.  Vintage touches in the glasses and candle holders give the table a little something extra. This elegant table arrangement is perfect for any outdoor or spring wedding.

Luggage Tag Wedding Favors

Image

Luggage tags for wedding favors would be a great idea for a destination wedding! So creative and unique, and definitely something people would use again. Get them made in your wedding colors with a quote on them, a lyric from your first dance song or something memorable about you as a couple and the date of your wedding.

Unique, Stylish Valentine’s Day Gifts For Your Wife

pretty plum sugar robe - valentine's day giftAhh, Valentine’s Day – the official day of romance. While lingerie, flowers and candy are the holiday’s gifting mainstays for the important lady in your life, I’m a fan of going with something a little more subtle, yet still romantic. Here are my top picks for unique, stylish presents for your girlfriend or wife on Valentine’s Day:

1. Scoop Back Kimono Style Robe – Pretty Plum Sugar, $68 (see photo above)

What I love about this robe is the sexy shape and beautiful fabrics – it’s less obvious than buying your lady lingerie, but she’ll love it so much that it just might have the same effect.

2. Byredo Cotton Poplin Candle – Net-A-Porter, $80

 

This candle is so simple, sleep and stylish. It’s the perfect luxurious present that avoids being cheesy, but is still a beautiful romantic gift. I mean, who doesn’t love to be bathed in candlelight?

3. Faux Fur Mink Throw – Calypso St. Barth, $395  

This ultra-soft and sophisticated faux fur throw is a perfect compliment to almost any home’s decor. It makes a gorgeous throw on the bed, couch, and can make a fabulous makeshift throw in front of a fireplace on Valentine’s Day too… just saying! ;)

 

What are some of your favorite unique, non-traditional yet still stylish ideas for Valentine’s Day presents? Or what is the favorite gift you’ve ever received for Valentine’s Day? Leave us some love below, we want to hear from you!

Happy Valentine’s Day, all!
