Trend alert: black and white stripes

black-and-white-stripes-at-wedding

Ok, black and white stripes are not new, but they are certainly shining on the wedding scene. Black and white stripes are clean, modern, and easy to pair up with bright colors, so it’s no wonder they are used so much. Also, a little bit of advice, there’s some uber cheap black and white fabric at Ikea that you could easily turn into tablecloths like these. Score!

DIY geometric garland

make-a-paper-garland

This simple garland is the perfect accessory to add to any event, especially your modern wedding. It’s easy to make, just requires a bit of time. Let’s get crackin!

Supplies: paper color of your choice, circle cutter (I got mine from here) OR scissors, sewing machine, thread

supplies

 

Step 1: Cut out your circles in any size you want. We did  6″ circle here.

Step 2: Fold the circle in half.

Step 3: Fold the circle in half the other way.

Step 4: Fold the circle in half two more times so that there are 8 pieces total. The folds should go in and out, meaning that every other fold should be going the same way.

Step 5: Cut out two of the pieces with scissors.

Step 6: Sew down one line of the circle.

Step 7: Continue sewing down each paper fold onto the next circle. I left about 3-4″ between circles. I also alternated which line I sewed down to add variety to the look of the garland.

Voila!

UPDATE: Turns out, there’s a great French designer, Maïze, who has been making garlands like this for awhile. Though I was unfamiliar with her work, I think you should buy from her! She’s got lots of amazing garlands. Here’s her website. - Brittany Watson Jepsen of The House That Lars Built

6 ways to use billy balls at your wedding

6-WAYS-TO-USE-BILLY-BALLS-AT-YOUR-WEDDING

I’m loving how billy balls are so in right now. They are the perfect dash of happiness and cute, yet used in the right way, they can also be a modern. The long line of the stem creates a unique height and the perfectly round pop of yellow adds an unexpected quirk. Try adding them into your wedding in some unique ways: boutonnieres for the groomsmen, a bouquet with succulents, a more modern bouquet with lots of them together, use one on it’s one for a place setting, use three to act as ring stands, or group them on their own for a centerpiece.

Have you used billy balls before?

4 ways to use honeycomb

4-WAYS-TO-USE-HONEYCOMB

I’ve noticed a major epidemic of DIYs using tisse honeycomb balls recently. I think part of the appeal is that they come in the loveliest shades making it easy to want to use them. I love the idea of stacking them on top and grouping them together for maximum statement. A great way to fill in a empty reception venue to to clump large items together and this does just that.
