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.

Honoring Family Members

November 20th, 2012 by Karen Pan | Comment

In this season of thanksgiving, we thought what better topic than honoring family members at your wedding. Weddings are a great time to honor those closest to you, either a special family member that will be attending the wedding or someone that you have lost. We’ve seen brides walk down the aisle to a symbolic song to play tribute to that person. Or you might have a special piece of fabric that your mother or grandmother wore on her wedding day that you can sew it into your own gown or attach to your bouquet. We’ve also seen couples light a candle or dedicate flowers to those who couldn’t be present. Whatever it may be, it might not be known by others but it will be close to your heart on that special day and that’s all that matters.
