DIY: Fall Leaves!

October has come to an end and November is officially here! That means all those beautiful leaves that made for great scenery have now fallen to the ground.  In this post, you will learn about some great ways to make use of those leaves with a little bit of DIY.  After all, fall leaves are beautiful and deserve to be put on display well beyond their time on the trees!

DIY Lighting

I’ll admit, when a client utters the words “DIY” I do get a little worried. Not that I’m afraid of a little crafting or that I don’t love the way some DIYing can look, because I do! But I digress, there is a whole other post here about why I don’t think you should try to DIY your whole wedding, (hint hint, it has something to do with stress and time management). So, when a client said to me that she wanted to use a DIY lighting company  I had never heard of I told her “ok, let’s try it for that great price”, but I was worried and I told her that too! Luckily she had a great attitude and an adventurous spirit and we ordered uplighting from Superlative Events for her wedding. The company is local, so we felt good about the lights being shipped to us since they were not coming from a distance that I couldn’t drive to in case of emergency. We had them shipped to the venue. They came in a carrying case (a heavy one, but it had wheels) with exact directions inside on what to do. There was also a video online that we could watch. We got them out the night before and tested them and it was super easy. The day of the wedding, I was able to set them up for my client, turn them on and viola, beautiful uplights, no lighting technician needed, just little old me! At the end of the night I packed them up and we sent them back the next day. So easy, such a great price and so worth it! I highly highly recommend trying out Superlative Events if you are interested in doing your own uplighting. They offer a great service.  was so pleased as was the couple!

Happy Mother’s Day

Sunday is Mother’s Day and we all have a mother or are a mother or know a mother we love and appreciate. So make sure they feel loved with a little something special, DIY or store bought, it won’t matter as long as they are appreciated.

Wrap it Up

Baker’s twine is the cutest thing ever. I want to wrap everything up in it. And you can! That is the amazing thing about it. It is so fun and can be used anywhere! It dresses up anything you wrap it around. It just makes anything more lovely and fun and fabulous.

DIY Holiday Crafts and Gifts

I may have mentioned my thoughts on DIY a time or two on this here blog. Keep it simple and don’t do too much. However, when it comes to the holidays. I think it is a great time to make some gifts or adorable decor with or without your gifts or better yet, decor as gifts.

DIY Do’s and Dont’s

1. DO DIY – it can add a beautiful, personal touch to your event
2. DO ask for help – DIY doesn’t have to be JUST the Y, ask your bridesmaids to help, delegate, it can be fun
3. DON’T get in over your head – one or two easy items can add a wonderful touch, more than that and you are spending all your time crafting, stressed you won’t finish or trying to create something that just isn’t working
4. DO know exactly what you are going to do with each item. What is it’s purpose? Where does it go?
5. DO only one or two items, more could not only be too much it could get kitchy
6. DON’T forget that your time is worth something. Sometimes it can be cheaper to pay someone else to do what you want. That way a. it is done, b. you don’t have to worry about messing it up and c. you get exactly what you wanted
7. DO make sure that someone else knows your decor plan besides you so that they can help put your DIY vision in place come day of
8. DON’T DIY just in case. Having a DIY project on hand that you do not know what you want to do with it, or doesn’t serve a purpose in some way is not worth your time or energy. Only craft what you know you are going to use and for what
9. DO make it personal. Your guests will love a personal touch
10. DON’T sweat the small stuff. If you don’t get a project done or don’t like what you did. Nobody but you is going to know it isn’t there come day of
11. DO have fun with it. And if it isn’t fun, DON’T do it!

Quilting Bee

My grandmother makes everyone in the family a quilt at some point in their life, it is a wonderful tradition that we all cherish. I love my quilt and my daughter’s quilt and they have both already spent many hours cuddled on the couch, spread out on the floor and even at the park.  I love the idea of using quilts in your fall event decor. Use them as a backdrop, linen or to stay warm. They can add such a beautiful, warm, familiar touch to your event.
