Pinterest: Pins of the Week
Baby’s Breath Boutonniere. Take one look at our Pinterest boards and you’ll know how much we love baby’s breath. This floral accent seems to show up in almost every single one of our boards, and we’re not sure we’ll ever stop loving this “filler floral.” Because baby’s breath is simple in size, shape, and color, it adds beautiful texture and layers, without being too overpowering. This boutonniere is the perfect example that sometimes less is more. A small bunch of baby’s breath, wrapped in twine, makes the perfect floral piece for grooms, groomsmen, ushers, and fathers.
DIY Photo Chandelier. Though this pin wasn’t originally intended to be a wedding idea, (it came from HGTV’s blog), we couldn’t help but swoon when we saw it. We instantly started thinking of how you could work this into your big day, and we love the idea of having personalized chandeliers hanging throughout your reception space. Include pictures of you and your partner, friends, and family. This could also be a fun way to designate seating, having guests locate their photo on a DIY chandelier above their table! We love to see couples personalize their special day, and this DIY wedding project is certainly a great way to do just that.
Floral Crown. The sun continues to make small appearances in Chicago, which has most Windy City residents itching for spring. And nothing says spring quite like flowers. So it’s no surprise that this floral crown caught our attention, making a bold statement. The majority of the flowers are fairly over sized for a headpiece, so we like the unexpected proportions of this crown. We also love the small pieces of greenery mixed in, as well as the off-centered placement of the piece. This is a twist on the more common and dainty floral crown, and for the bride wanting to make a statement, we say go for it!
