Days finally get longer, mornings brighter and birds start singing early in the mornings, all of which makes me very happy! My favourite season is on its way and I can feel it in the air)) Really looking forward to warm sunny days, as I can't stand cold. Also spring 2012 means my mum is coming over for a visit (in 6 weeks to be precise)! I can't wait to give her a hug at the airport, show her around London, so she can see all the things I love about this city! Time for another Weekly Finds post - things I've come across on the web in the last week))
Lovely piece on the Natural Wedding Company blog about living table centrepieces. Quirky, rustic or elegant - they will breathe live into your reception, be it pots of herbs, blossoming flowers, succulents, or even strawberry plants! If you don't like the actual look of pots - wrap some fabric around them (hessian, for example), and maybe some pretty lace around that fabric. They can also double up as favours - something guests will remember for a long time, and it will be a wonderful decoration for their home.
Here are a couple of examples from the Eco Wedding Inspiration shoot I did last year. Potted succulents grouped together as a table centrepiece. They also have name tags and double as favours))
This week I've got a thing about bow ties - love, love, love! They are so versatile! Two images below from Green Wedding Shoes show just how they can be elegant, and also quirky at the same time. Bow ties certainly add charm to the overall look of a groom. Rather dashing))
