So heres the scoop. I had an amazing invitation from Emily of Once wed to design a wedding table for her "Table Trends" series. Of course I nearly bit her hand off to accept. Thank you so much Emily.
Planned on a budget of $200-$250 using easily accessible supplies. I will hand make some pieces to save money and may use some vintage elements, not too many though as I appreciate not everyone feels the need to trawl flea markets and antique stores. But hey one day maybe people will employ me to do the leg work for them?
My first Wintery thoughts are for Lots of White accented with Gold leaf. Rich winter fruits. Foil wrapped sweets. But don't let me give it all away so soon. I will be making some more collage boards as soon as I get back home to my avalanche of magazines and paper. The magazine fast is officially over. (Well, it is nearing christmas and I just can't resist all those festive front covers).
The inspiration board you see here is a collection of images from these wonderful designers Emma Cassi, Sweet Paul and Colin Cooke, Caroline Roehm, and Martha Stewart.
I also love the idea of these snow topped cupcakes from Cannelle et Vanille too. If you'll join me I'll keep you posted of my progress each step of the way.
Ps. These guinea pigs are better company than you would think, every time I go to leave the room they are hanging on the bars to see where I'm going. Bless em. Yes they live in Emma-li's lounge!
