Marbleized Wedding Details

March 11th, 2014 by Karen Pan | Comment

I’m obsessed with marbleized wedding details right now! It’s such a cool trend that is perfect for a fresh spring or summer wedding. Marbleized wedding decor goes well on just about everything from stationary, linens and even vessels. It’s perfect for that artsy, whimsical and lighthearted couple and great DIY projects that you could work on together. Check out the great tutorial at Green Wedding Shoes on how to create your own marbled paper .

Glitter Snow Globe Tutorial

December 19th, 2012 by Karen Pan | Comment

One of the reasons I love this time of the year is because I get to catch up on all the fun DIY projects that I’ve been holding off during the busy wedding season. These glitter snow globes are a great project that can be easily done all year round and used at your wedding. I chose an ornament reflective of the season but you can fill your jar with any non festive decoration that represents you as a couple. Try using different sized jars, mismatched glitter and even artificial foliage. Place them next you flower centerpiece or dessert table. Super cute!

In this season of giving, a lot of thought and time is put into finding the perfect gift for that special someone. However,  a nicely packaged gift is sometimes a forgotten detail that can bring just as much joy as the gift itself. You can use almost anything for your gift wrapping from plain printer paper, foliage, lace, bakers twine, burlap…the possibilities are endless! Here are some ideas to inspire that extra special touch.

Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan

February 28th, 2012 by Karen Pan | Comment

Have you ever wondered how to get that vintage French look for your furniture and decor? Well, I recently discover this AMAZING paint called Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan, which can transform virtually anything into a vintage masterpiece. The texture has a matte, velvety finish resembling chalk (but is not chalkboard paint). It has gained worldwide popularity for its easy use and the fact you do not need any preparation. No stripping, sanding or priming is needed and the paint will adhere perfectly well to almost any surface including wood, glass, metal and plastic. The possibilities are not just limited to interiors but imagine transforming a beautiful frame or table centerpiece for your wedding or next event. Your guests will be so impressed when they find out you created these pieces. Check it out!

Our favorite holiday is just around the corner and what better way to the mark the season of love than with a beautiful Valentine’s Day wreath. Here are some ideas to get you in the romantic mood.  How about a gorgeous and simple wreath made out of white burlap or tissue-paper pom poms. Or make a bold statement with a paper rose wreath made out red card stock. These ideas would also work perfectly as wedding day decor.
