  2. christina says:

  3. Kendra says:

    I'm LOVING those yellow striped curtains. Where are they from?

  4. Laura Trevey says:

    LOVE the yellows and blues…

  5. Splendid Sass says:

    There is a floral blog, but I can't remember the name of it. Everything looks lovely, Mrs. DIY. Have a great week.

  6. Hamptontoes says:

    I agree with Lavendar and Lillies, orchids are a lovely and sophisticated option for an older couple. Also, they can keep them or share with their children. Nice momento of the special day. How many people will attend? What is the budget for centerpieces? Is the affair in the day or at night? Votives always look gorgeous when grouped in large numbers (inexpenisve at Ikea)…I have lots of ideas!

    Our colors were dust pink & shades of grey. here's a pic of the invites/rsvp postcards:



    Our centerpices looked a lot like this:

    oh… and check out oncewed.com They have BEAUTIFUL wedding pictrues. I was *obsessed* with that site in the months before we got married.

  9. Helena - A Diary of Lovely says:

    felicidades a tus papas Camila, Im sure it will be a very special day!

  10. Mary @ RoomPolish says:

    what a lovely guest room! I am loving succulents lately for center pieces—but that's not quite the orange you're hoping for! I'm so excited to find your blog—I feel like I'm trying to get my foot in the design door too—degree in anthropology and NOW figure out what to do with my life…such is life right?? Anyway congrats on your BEAUTIFUL blog. Excited to see what you come up with day in and day out!

  11. High-Heeled Foot in the door says:

    Thanks for all of your ideas.

    Just finished cropping all of the menus. Had a teeny snag when I found a typo and needed to re-print!

    We are going to be having 65 guests and I think it will be 8 tables.

    Trying to figure out what I'm going to put the flowers in. I was going to use my milk glass collection, but my mom is afraid people will walk out of them at the end of party. I don't think Jon would mind that, but I totally would.

    I will keep you all posted.

  12. Mrs. Chic says:

    I'm a sucker from Hydrangeas in white….always a classic

  13. kayce hughes says:

    It could be fun to do the turquoise paint inside some thrift store glass vases and fill them with different yellow flowers.

  14. shari @ little blue deer says:

    I really love this! My wedding colors were light blue and yellow, and it was so cheerful, I was really glad I went with it. My one bridesmaid wore brown satin, it all ended up matching perfectly!

  15. Anonymous says:

    I noticed people are using paper pinwheels as centerpieces. Saw it on the following website (August 27th post):http://andersruff.blogspot.com/

    With your color combination you probably can come up with some interesting ideas with paper.

    Good Luck!

    send all those good centerpiece ideas this way! My blue and orange wedding needs all the good ideas it can get 🙂

    LOVE those menus, very cute!

    Centerpieces are so important. I would purchase inexpensive clear vases and with etching cream create a monogram in the center. Either etch the whole vase so the monogram is clear or etch the mnogram. Use mums and bright yellow gerberas to keep with the color scheme. Or etch your parents and use a different design on the others so someone at the table can take them home as a party favor.

    how about candles with an unusual vase filler such as small multi colored chili peppers (depending on the theme)colorful glass chunks from the crafts store, pretty river rock etc. Tie a big bow around the bottom of the hurricane and you have a lovely centerpiece.

    congratulations to your parents.

    If you want to go with something other than – or in addition to – flowers, I love this idea from Martha:


    We did something similar at our family reunion but actually put the vellum on larger square glass vases and eliminated the frames altogether. They turned out beautifully and seem like an appropriate way to celebrate your parents' lives together.

  19. A Few of My Favorite Things says:

    And what did I just stumble upon but a fabulous yellow centerpiece made out of all things, yellow Jello! Sounds heinous but it's actually quite pretty.


  20. Hello Lover... says:

    Love the colors and the menus are adorable. What about just getting some simple glass vases from a craft store and wrapping them with either ribbon or pretty fabrics and filling them with flowers of your choice – great way to add some color!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
