Confetti Influence

Martha Stewart threw out some ideas for a confetti-themed wedding recently. I love confetti, and I love simplicity, so these are kinda awesome for me.

The last ones, especially, the dougnut holes. How could I not love them? :)

Martha recommends asking your caterer to roll them in colored sugar...

...i think a girl could find a way to DIY it herself, indeed.

i'd love to go to this party.

dreary cheery

this wedding




look at all those garlands!

they're beautiful.

they're so colorful!

they're probably so easy to make! (except time-consuming, of course) :D

and i love the portraits in front of the old house.

that peeled paint, those rough boards

reminds me of my fantasy home in Farmersville

000h gotta love a fixer upper.


Hey y'all.

So today i will admit...that I love Ikea, by default.

First of all, let me preface this by saying that every time I go into Ikea, I have to eat a huge meal. Otherwise, my head quickly begins swimming and I can't understand why all my energy has been sapped.


Recently, I moved all the way into Josh's studio apartment here in Cincy. TINY. And before these magical Ikea trips, pretty dang sucky. The walls suck, the floor is crappy, the space was too crowded, EVERYTHING. He had all this furniture just falling apart, and finally, I was tired of it.

And WAZAAAM! For under 150 buckaroonies, we got new curtains, a new rug, and GIANT storage shelf, two plates, and some Ikea bags that have completely changed the ENTIRE ROOM. Now, I don't feel like crying when I go home. Now, I feel like lounging around all morning long if I could (but I can't because i work.) :)

It's really very amazing.

We also got a rolling garment rack from The Container Store because our entire closet fell down. What's that? I didn't mention the "broke," and "college graduate" part of the story?

and while we're at it, I got a thirty dollar pair of amazing green suede pants from Anthropologie. I need some blouses! Wowweee!

by marcesa

and available in my dreams

a sweet, simple, southern wedding

i found this wedding on 100 layer cake, and it's just too divine.

how sweet!

how simple!

and look at how enjoyable everyone is!

i love the desserts in the back of an old truck.

i, of course, love roasting marshmallows and making s'mores.

but most importantly, i love their sweet, sweet smiles.
