We love these individually wrapped shawls. It’s a great way to make sure guests stay warm for those gorgeous outdoor weddings. Weather can be fickle and change on a dime, so why not be ready? Brides can mix and match to incorporate the color palette of the wedding. They can be a wonderful inexpensive way to cater to the guests and keep the color scheme flowing throughout the wedding. Plus the shawls are a cozy favor for guests to keep wearing even after the big day. It is such a cute and lasting piece of the design.

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.

This is a creative and unique idea for a fall wedding, shower, halloween party, or even Thanksgiving decor! Hollow out a large pumpkin and place a similar sized metal bowl, or gallon bucket inside, fill with ice and stick your wine or beer bottles inside. Easy as that, and truly adds a fun touch to the theme that your guests will love! What other creative DIY projects have you done with pumpkins?

This is a great idea if you are having water (or wine!) on the tables. The bottles can double as the table numbers.

This mason jar themed bridal shower is adorable for a summer shower, and easy to put together!
Mason jar shaped labels for food and drinks make a cute accessory for the themed shower. There are many templates on google but the template from Sweetly Scrapped Blog was used for these. There are several different mason jar shapes, so choose the one you like! Simply print out the template and trace it on to a piece of scrapbook paper, color of your choice, and cut it out (you can fit about 3 or 4 on one sheet of paper). Then cut white scrap book paper for the top and the middle to write on. Last, tie a piece of twine around the top.
Brides- What other mason jar ideas have you seen?
