Gifts for your Gal: Kitchen Edition

Blame it on the “Hey good looking. What’cha got cookin’?” currently playing in the background, but right now I’m dreaming of the perfect editions to my less than fabulous eclectic kitchen. Complete with some scattered mason jars, a coffee mug wall, and a cute little recipe box, I have to admit it is unfortunately lacking some key components that make it hard to get into the culinary spirit. Thankfully, that’s about to change. Wanna get your gal into the kitchen and see what she can whip up? Here are some ideas to get her there, because lets face it… that’s really where the magic happens.

Wedding Wednesday: Travel Theme Wedding

Confession time: I have a recent obsession with maps. If you know me, this is more than hilarious considering I’m one of the most directionally challenged people out there. I may not know how to read them, but I still think maps are some of the prettiest pieces of décor out there. This makes me beyond excited to see how items such as maps, globes, luggage tags, and other traveling equipment is being used in weddings everywhere. If you are a couple who enjoys adventuring and traveling, or maybe you came from different sides of the globe, there are so many easy ways to tie that aspect into your wedding. Here are a few of my favorite ideas.

Lace Wedding Decor

Rustic weddings are certainly “in” and while we have all seen our fair share of the burlap, baby’s breath, and lace trend, when was the last time you saw lace wedding decorations without the other two? I love love love lace! It’s so classy and timeless. I mean, if it’s good enough for Kate Middleton, it is certainly good enough for us! So here are some decor items that I have found and I’m loving on lately. My vote is to remove the harsh and rough burlap and just focus on the delicate and whimsical lace!

This beautiful lace ribbon garland would be the perfect backdrop for your alter, cake table, or even a photobooth! Just imagine the ribbons drifting slightly in the breeze…

I love the glow of flicking candles! Then add the delicate lace around the outside of a glass votive to really class-it-up! It’s an easy DIY that will bring your wedding to the next level.

I mean who doesn’t love a good bow! These bows would be perfect aisle decorations to hang from each pew!

These DIY lace projects would be so so simple! Plus they would create a density that would really liven up a dark corner or doorway of your reception venue.

Wedding Proposal Video – Chicago Fashion Blogger Gets Engaged

Back in May 2013, we were asked to create a marriage proposal for an Inside Edition segment (see blog post here)! Obviously you can’t turn something like that down, talk about a fantastic opportunity! Then Dave came to us with the perfect scenario. His girlfriend is a fashion blogger in Chicago and loves creating new style trends through her blog, Style Sidebar. So we took outfits from her blog and created adjectives that both describe the outfit and Tiffany! Then we created a rouse to get her to Cuneo Mansion and Gardens (a local fashion show), and gave all her friends and family tickets to the show! When Tiffany showed up she noticed that each guest was someone special to her, and then she saw the incredible models (also friends and family) strut their stuff with her outfits on. What a wonderful surprise for her!

Last week, Dave sent us a very delightful surprise of his own – a professional video of the proposal! Obviously we have the footage from Inside Edition, but this is from their wedding videographer! Seriously, I love this proposal video… you can feel every emotion and exciting moment from that special day. And even though it’s almost two years later, this video is new to us so we are sharing with you! Enjoy :)
