I just wanted to further share with you all how I spent my day!! I made some embroidery hoop art and a grapevine wreath and some primitive grapevine star crafts!!!
This is a really cute tutorial by Dear Lillie for Crepe Paper Peonies! You could use these on a lot of things!! From wall art to table settings from party decor to specially wrapped gifts! Head on over to her blog and check out this free & simple tutorial!
This pin by Diane Bockus is stunning! What a beautiful idea for Spring/Easter Decor that will last! This is one of the prettiest silk arrangements that I have seen….using faux tulips & moss in a vintage basket with decorative easter eggs! This will be so easy to recreate! Make it one of your floral centerpieces this Spring for your Easter gatherings!!! Diane has some consistently great pins over on Pinterest as well! Follow her boards!
My Pinterest find of the day is this great diy St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Themed party by the Busy Budgeting Mama! She shows you a cheap way to celebrate the Luck of the Irish with your little ones! Batting for clouds! Bright colored fabric for the beams of the rainbow all hung with a curtain rod! I love her placement of the yellow potted flower and her idea of using skittles for rainbow seeds! She also has a printable for purchase for $10 to use for your packs of rainbow seeds for your party guests!!! Check it out!
I haven’t been on Hostess with the Mostest in a while but, I just checked it out and found this beautiful Ice Cream Party Theme that would be a great for a birthday.. but, I think I like it even better for a baby shower (especially with all of the pastels)! The theme is by Just Call Me Martha! The Ice Cream Cone Cake and the Ice Cream Float flower arrangements are definitely the highlights for me!!!
I am a gypsy at heart! So as my first full wedding idea post I decided to post about a wedding Style I would go for, The Bohemian Wedding! This is a compilation of some beautiful finds around the internet that I hope inspires the gypsy at heart in planning her big day!
1. The Most important part of a wedding we all know is the dress!!! Here are the top three dresses that wowed me!
I found this dress over on weheartit! I love the lace patterns!
This Dress is breathtaking!!! Get it over on ETSY by DaughtersofSimone for $2,550.00! By the look of it…it is worth the $$
I absolutely adore the crochet and bell sleeves on this gorgeous dress! You can get it for $676.00 over on dreamersandlovers ETSY store!
2. Wedding Hair! Letting your hair down is a must-do for any Bohemian Style wedding!
Let your hair down with this lace head band!!! This post on Burnettsboards gets the credit!!!
Melissa Heuscher on Pinterest pinned this gorgeous bohemian style head band and hair idea!!!
And of course!!! The Flower Crown!!! Check out Miss At La Playa for all of her flower crown finds!
3. The Bridesmaids!!!!
I love this bridemaid style from Three Bird Nest that also sells the headbands you see in the photo!
This is an absolutely stunning pin from Gabrielle Pettit over on Pinterest! I am in love!
4. The Bouquets!!! Wild, Full & Over-the-Top is where it is at!!!
Again, from Ruffled….the zinnias and amaranth… OMG this is dreamy!!!
Oh, the Peaches & Blues, Rust & Mustard Yellow hues over on Simply Peachy!!!!! This is the color combo that I would personally go for in a boho bouquet…but, I would make it fuller!!!
This bouquet is equally gorgeous even with the more muted pastels!!! The Roses, Wax flowers, and Whispy greenery make a gorgeous combination!!! Thankful for the Wedding Chicks for posting this!!
Of course for the bridesmaids bouquets you should go for an identical yet significantly smaller bouquet for each!
I love this bout and all the other bouts made by hazelfaire over on ETSY. All of her creations are perfect for any Boho Wedding Groom!!! Dare I say, just buy from her!!! ❤ ❤
I like interesting pieces of anything when it comes to crafts and art… and I am so in love with this mustard yellow bout from Fairyfolkweddings also over on ETSY! So whimsical!
I just adore the color palette and the incorporation of the feather of this bout pinned by Sandeep Mace on Pinterest!
6. Da Grooooom! Encourage your groom to go with non-traditional attire (even if just a hint) for your Boho Themed Wedding!
From Inspired by This!
Hell Yes, on the suspenders and the blue w/ khaki via Wedding Chicks!
Or dress it up a bit with a funky polka dotted tie (Green Wedding Shoes)!!
7. Other Ceremony Details!!!! I stumbled across so many great ideas including wedding settings (!!)… so I am just gonna throw it all into one category here!
from Elizabeth Anne Designs. If you don’t do anything else please have this wooden swing adorned in flowers at your wedding soiree! Perfect for photos and for guests, especially kiddos!!
This canopy “altar” is a MUST too!!! from Pretty Wedding Idea!

and….never…forget…the getaway car!!! (Green Wedding Shoes)
Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette was a very visually pleasing movie…and I have to say it is really the only movie I ever liked Kirsten Dunst in. This Party theme featured on Occasions Online could mirror the movie decor! It is so gorgeous and charming + I love the photo of the girls in their ‘royal best’! They have a nice little blog article written along with the photos of this visual treat! This is a party theme that I look forward to recreating in the future!
