Artifact Uprising Wedding Invitation and Macaron Eiffel Tower favor

Macaron Eiffel TowerAny excuse to go to Europe is a good one and it turns out I hit the jackpot! My brother-in-law, who lives in Denmark, is getting married in October to a lovely girl from France. And yes, I think you know where this is heading…We’re going to France for a wedding in the fall! Dreamy, right? Of course, I had to get involved in some of the preparations, and thankfully the bride and groom were generous enough to include me.

So we teamed up with Artifact Uprising to create a wedding invitation with an elevated design and timeless appeal, perfect for a classic Parisian wedding. The invitation is a no-frills design ideal for the modern bride or groom who may not be drawn to the traditional bells and whistles of a more extravagant invitation suite. Inspired by the beautiful blue invitation and the romantic Parisian wedding setting, we created a Macaron Eiffel Tower Favor! This little treat is perfect for an engagement party or wedding favor and goes great with the invitation! Remind me why I didn’t get married in Paris?

Disco Ball Ceiling Installation

DIsco ball ceiling hanging

The Disco balls have been trending over the past year and who can complain? With the way it catches the light and the tiny little mirrors, it deserves to have another moment in the sun! The resurgence of the mirrored ball got our wheels turning. We decided we needed to take the traditional disco ball to the next level. This Disco Ball Ceiling Installation is much more elevated than the traditional and will leave everyone gawking at your next shindig. Even if you’re not throwing a party, you can easily use this piece as home decor. And with just a few styling adjustments, this installation can transition from party decor to permanent art piece. A millennial pink color palette brought it all together! Can’t you picture it in a chic little loft apartment with a lush velvet couch? I’m thinking something like this or this. Long live the disco ball!DIsco ball ceiling hanging Read on →

Baby Lars’ French-inspired rattan nursery

French rattan cribFINALLY! All my years of pinning gorgeous children’s bedrooms come in handy! Not that I was particularly antsy, but children’s clothing and bedrooms are just naturally more whimsical and adorable and these are two adjectives that I can get behind 100%. You better believe that I’ll be documenting my nesting journey– I can’t let those 1,701 pins go to waste, now can I?!

Now, where to start… Read on →

DIY Bead Chandelier

DIY Bead Chandelier

We’ve got a Pottery Barn hack for you guys to try! You’ve probably seen this amazing bead chandelier making its way around the social media network. The layers of cascading beads have such a graceful look, but the natural wood keeps it fresh and easy to incorporate into any setting. We love it but with the $800 price tag, it’s a big dent in the monthly budget! Save where you can so you can splurge where you can, right? Of course, we automatically started to think of how we could replicate this beauty. A box of wooden beads, a handful of embroidery hoops, and a season of Friends later (yes, this one’s a bit time-consuming folks), we got just what we wanted! This chandelier could easily pass for an original. If you’ve got pennies to pinch and time to spare, this is the project for you! Total cost of supplies, $170! Score!

Check out the full DIY!
