The South is known for its delicious honey like Tupelo and Orange Blossom to name a few.  Here are a few sweet ideas for a honeybee inspired wedding.

How perfect are these invitations?  And we love the bee brooch on this bouquet!

We would fill these honeycomb ceramic vases with bright yellow flowers and use them as centerpieces.  You could serve cakes made in honeycomb molds as well! The yellow and black dresses from Eshakti would be great  for bridesmaids.

These little gold bee studs are so adorable and could be worn by both the bride and her bridesmaids.  We would wear them long after the wedding too!

This bee cutout place card is so creative in the way it is displayed perched on a wine glass. And of course you would have to have honey for favors!

This really is the easiest wreath you will ever make.  It is low cost and looks great when complete.  You can pick your color scheme and fabric so that it would fit into any decor scheme. To create your own all that you will need is:

  • Scissors
  • A metal wreath frame which can be found in most craft stores ($2-$5)
  • A good amount of scrap fabric or ribbon

Cut the fabric or ribbon into 10″ strips that are 1″-3″ wide.

Once you have your fabric and ribbon organized begin tying the pieces to outside wires of the wreath form using simple square knots.

Once you have completed the outside wire of the wreath form you repeat the same step on the inside wires.

Cover all of the inside wires and then add additional strips of fabric to any portion of the wire that is still showing.

Voila!  Your wreath is complete!

How fabulous would these look on the back of the bride and grooms chairs at the wedding reception?

The title of this posts says it all. Today we are inspired by Spanish moss and oak trees. Two Southern landscape staples that stretch from Texas all the way to the coasts of the Carolinas.

The wood grain band on these oak motif invitations adds texture and enhances the ‘carved initials’ image. These tags also bear the oak tree motif and an antiqued look.

This oak draped mantle is so simply elegant. Spanish moss can be tucked into all areas of your decor including around centerpieces or food displays like this candy bar. Or you could place your cake, desserts or other food on these trunk pedestals and tuck moss around the bases. If your budget permits you must serve Silver Oak wine (it is divine).

This is a beautiful example of Spanish moss tucked around centerpieces. The Spanish draped arbor creates a beautiful ceremony setting. The light fixture hanging from the tree in this cozy seating area is so chic.

It would be easy as pie to make these string light filled mason jars.

Speaking of string lights, how gorgeous is this light lined tree at night? You could also opt to hang lanterns instead or as well!

Important to Know: Do not touch or take live Spanish moss off of trees. Even though it is gray – it is still living and is host to many little critters (chiggers/red bugs) that will make you wish you never touched the stuff. You can purchase Spanish moss for decorating at most craft stores very inexpensively. This Spanish moss will be very dry so make sure you use it carefully around anything that is flammable.

Baby’s Breath has gotten a bad rap for serving as a ‘dozen red roses’ unwilling wingman for far to long. Often forgotten this simple white and light flower is elegant and very versatile.

Today we celebrate you, Baby’s Breath, in this short pictorial tribute.

There is something so dainty and feminine about lace.  It has always had a star role in bridal apparel but is now a huge trend in wedding decor as well. We found so many lace ideas that is was hard to narrow down our favorites.

This French inspired bridal cap is stunning. Monogrammed hankies are so sweet and perfect gifts for mothers, grandmothers and bridesmaids.  We love the way an heirloom handkerchief looks on a bouquet. This lace inspired bracelet would look beautiful for the wedding and could definitely be worn again afterwards.

Lace and mason jars as votives – Yes Please! And for cupcake liners. And for an inner envelope for invitations!

This invitation suite has a lace pattern in the great color scheme of peach and gray.  A lace clutch would be great for a bride or her stylish bridesmaids.

How clever is the idea of using a doily under a glass plate as a name card?  This cake is simply beautiful with the lace pattern to add texture and contrast. Even the popular trend of bunting can be combined with lace handkerchiefs to create a vintage look.

If you don’t want the lace bridal veil or just want something fun to wear at the reception you could opt for this lace and floral fascinator. These lace shoes are yet another fun bridal accessory.  We adore the detail in this Irish linen ring bearer pillow and handkerchief.  And because we love fans (its hot here and this is fashionable & functional) we had to include this battenburg lace version.

We had so much fun discovering the table number ideas yesterday that we continued our search today.  Here are a few more ideas.

These burlap table numbers are great for so many reasons but mainly because they are very environmentally friendly.  You can use potted plants that can be replanted afterwards, and the burlap bags can also be repurposed to hold and organize household items.

These fans could be made in any color and would look great in a variety of different types of venues.

These moss covered numbers are so cool and would be great for a rustic or country wedding reception.

And finally these wooden table numbers are unique in their size and shape considering their material.  We think they almost look shabby chic.

Obviously – we love creative ideas.  Table numbers and or names can be a great way to express yourself and continue the theme of your wedding.  We thought the following ideas were original and fun.

These bottles of wine used as table numbers are not only clever but functional.

For a nautical or beach themed wedding these sailboats totally upgrade the tablescape.

These books were made into table numbers simply by screwing exterior house numbers onto the cover of books.

We adore these cowboy hats that not only work as table numbers but could do double duty as favors as well!
