It’s my birthday today so, I thought it was only fitting to rock a party animal barrette in my hair and I had share!
I hope you all enjoyed the bridal shower photos. It was such a fun event to plan and I knew you would all enjoy the aesthetics of the venue.
One detail that I wanted to go into more was the invitation. Invitations set the tone for any party and this was no different. I spent days pouring through options on etsy. At the end of the day I couldn’t even make the final decision because I had so many favorites. This is where it’s super handy to have a co-maid of honor. Daniela picked out the option that was the most fitting for the event. The bride loves glitter and gold and one of her wedding colors is blush so this invitation was the clear winner for her.
Wouldn’t you agree?
Lindsay from Sea Paper Design was a dream to work with! She was super prompt responding to my questions and the quality was amazing. I also had her handle the printing and I was a bit nervous about not taking that on myself, because I’m a bit of a paper snob and I wanted to make sure it was thick enough. No flimsy paper here! Lindsay totally got where I was coming from and recommended the best option to go with for thickness. We went with matte.
Since I’m all about the details I couldn’t just use a plain old white envelopes. I ordered contrasting color envelopes in seafoam and then added gold glitter liners to match the gold font on the invites.
You all know I love a dose of vintage in a room. My favorite vintage item to use in a room is a rug. Not just any old rug, but a vintage kilim rug. Most times they come in odd sizes so I typically use them in bathrooms and laundry rooms where I don’t need large sizes.
I just stumbled upon etsy shop, Khalkedon Kilims which has so many amazing options. You must check it out!
My absolute favorite has to be this beauty:
Look at all of those bold colors:
I don’t think I have ever seen a vintage rug with this color combo and I’m smitten.
A trip to Peru has been on my must travel to list for some time now. It looks like a beautiful country with lots to do especially getting to see all of the amazing artisan work that comes from there. How amazing are these Frazadas rugs?
Etsy shop, El Hummingbird sources these from the Andean mountains in Peru where it takes up to a month to produce one! They are made of sheep’s wool and then colored with natural dyes. They can be used as blankets, rugs, wall coverings, etc. I would use them to cover an ottoman!
Ah! All of those pops of pink and bright colors!!!! I think my living room totally needs one!
Perhaps it my High School desire to go to F.I.T., but fashion illustrations always speak to me and the pieces from A Thing Created are just beautiful. Erisha is the Seattle based artist behind this etsy shop and her work is truly stunning. She makes me envious of all of the girls in her prints. I just want to switch places with all of them for a little bit ok let’s face it when my day is crazy I want to switch with them period.
She has a fun collection of summer inspired pieces that would be the perfect addition for any gallery wall:
I’m just a little obsessed with her work and you can be too! Use code SETSAIL to take 20% off all summer inspired items.
P.S. We are working together on a little project of my own that I can’t wait to share with you!!!
