Feminine Chic: DIY Friday

You may have felt a little neglected this week, what with only one post each day instead of three. What in the heck??? I’ve been busy over here getting ready for a photo shoot that I’m styling this weekend. I’m SO excited for what we’ve got planned, and as soon as the photos are published, you’ll be the first to see the goods. So while I run around getting ready, I thought I’d offer up a big helping of love from our favorite MSWeddings.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but feminine details are all the rage right now: ruffles, sparkles, pearles and lace. If you haven’t picked up this month’s Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine, you should run out right now and grab it. This quarter is one of my favorites! The whole issue highlights a return to glamour, which pleases me more than you’ll ever know. Here are some fabulous goodies (and several DIY projects) from their feature on lace:

Trend Alert: More vases, less work

I’m always looking for really great ideas that diy brides can translate into their own projects. This new trend is VERY easy for brides to replicate. Collect different sizes of vases, buy your flowers in bulk, and keep like with like–a vase of hydrangea, a vase of peonies and a vase of roses. Whether you do a monochromatic theme or a mix of color, this idea can be done quickly and a day ahead. If you are looking to stretch your budget on flowers, but don’t feel confident in your floral skills, this is the look for you.
