Pinterest Pins Of The Week

Big Balloons: We’ve been seeing this trend for awhile in small doses. Dessert table queen Amy Atlas wowed us with her monochromatic take on sweets with coordinating extra large balloons attached to her table. But balloons are taking over for real now with less emphasis on florals and total whimsy with these giant childhood favorites stealing the show and acting as centerpieces and focal points.  And there’s really no limit to colors and styles- AND prices! BHLDN makes some uber fancy golden and metallic ones with ultra plush add -ons, but you can also find DIY tutorials, some serious steals on ETSY and wholesale finds from sites like Event Décor Direct. Some of calling them Geronimo balloons, but in reality they are just super sized latex balloons that need lots of helium and are making a huge statement.  The coolest part? They can be customized with over the top fancy tassels and double as wedding photo props. They’re adorable and in bulk make a massive statement, literally. See ‘blackboard decor’ here.

chicago cotton candyCotton Candy Accessorizing: We knew earlier this week, when we covered local vendor Spin Spun, that cotton candy was definitely all the rage. But Colin Cowie took it to a whole new level on Pinterest with this dream- like presentation of cocktail hour with cotton candy glass toppers.  You can imagine our surprise when we also found this photo in the latest Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine. Try it on in small doses since it seems a bit labor intensive. We are thinking engagement party or bridal shower. Either way, the look is fabulous and sure to induce lots of chatter.

Floral Envelope Liners: Lining envelopes has long been a highly sought after trend of the upscale stationary lovers, and now the look has become even more fun and also more accessible.  For those with a big budget and even bigger imagination, you can custom line your envelopes in almost any pattern or design. We especially love the idea of a floral, almost wallpaper-inspired design for the upcoming Spring. We also adore what companies like the always whimsical Cherie Berry are doing with vintage prints and initials. And for those brides who are looking to save a few bucks? Lining your own has never been easier! Buying the paper in bulk or even printing your own on a laser jet printer can save you tons and with a little time and the right adhesive can look just as good!Modern Elegant Wedding Invitation

Pinterest: Pins of the Week

Pins of the Week
Last week, we posted about our obsession with Pinterest!  We love it so much that we’ve spent the past week scouring the site for some fabulous and creative wedding ideas.  We’ve decided to share three of our favorite “pins” each week.  Let the pinning begin!

 Celebration Signs
We spotted these cheery signs from a pin via Style Me Pretty.  We are big fans of the reception exit, and these are a fun yet simple twist on the tradition.  This is also perfect for indoor spaces or venues that don’t allow sparklers!

Don’t get us wrong, we love a classic black tux, but this groom’s choice for gray had us doing a double take.  Just a shade off of the normal, it stands out and gives the wedding a unique and slightly relaxed feel.  We think gray will be huge for the men this spring, and frankly, we can’t wait!  Image via Ruffled

Vintage Inspired Garters
Brides have been following the tradition of garters for years, and these Emily Riggs Bridal vintage inspired garters take the tradition to a new level.  Hand selected crystal buttons on French imported lace…what’s not to love?  We have a feeling brides might think twice about having this tossed among a group of rowdy bachelors!
