Chic Painted Pumpkin Centerpiece | Fall Party Planning

Chic Painted Pumpkin Vase with FlowersChic Painted Pumpkin Centerpiece | Fall Party Planning 

We love this painted pumpkin vase with fresh flowers that showed up on our Facebook feed from Beau-coup, one of our favorite party favor merchants.  Yes, flowers always look great in pumpkins but an orange pumpkin with fall flowers is very predictable.  All they did in this photo was spray paint this pumpkin white and add a chic contemporary floral arrangement to create a fresh centerpiece look for fall.  We love the painted pumpkin displayed on the acacia cake stand also!

We also think this idea would translate well to an intimate dinner party or could even be used at each place setting as a place card / party favor (one per couple is just fine!).  Simply use a miniature painted pumpkin and add a handful of freshly picked ombre flowers...

We are definitely adding this to our We <3 Fall Pinterest board as we gather ideas for this year's Thanksgiving festivities. Continue Reading →

Gorgeous Succulent Bouquets, Boutonnieres & Corsages

Late summer and fall weddings are just around the corner so it is time to start thinking about your flowers. We love the idea of using gorgeous succulents, air plants, and wild and dried flowers to create fabulous bridal bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages. Best yet, not only are the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages long lasting, they can be easily unwrapped and planted after your big day. Additionally, using succulents for your wedding flowers offers two more distinct advantages

  1. Succulent bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages are an eco-friendly choice for upcycling your wedding flowers.
  2. You and your wedding party can enjoy your wedding bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages for years to come.

We are particularly enamored with the showcased airplant boutonnieres and wildflower boutonnieres. These particular boutonnieres feature oregano, dried blooms, and assorted wild flowers, with a twine treatment on the stem. How fabulous! Here is another image showing the variety and detail available. Best yet, they are only $14.00 each! Continue Reading →

Mountain Day Inspiration >> Celebrate Autumn!

Today is Mountain Day! The Smith College bells were rung early this morning (October 5th) to announce that the college's president has suspended classes for the day. Students are free to go hiking, have picnics, pick apples at local farms, or just take a relaxing break. #smithmountainday

What a beautiful tradition!  As some of you who have been following me for a while know, this is not the first time I have waxed poetic about Mountain Day.  I truly believe that every institution and organization should establish a similar holiday dedicated to re-invigorating the soul.
