Trend Alert – Is Navy the New Black?

According to the lastest fall trends for 2011, as far as nails go, navy is the new black.  Loving it!  Went for a pedicure with my friend yesterday and we both tried it out.  It did take a couple of shades in order to find the perfect Navy though.  We decided on Navy Baby by Sally Hansen.  It was a shade that I had brought from home.  The salon wasn’t hip to the trend yet.  So their shades were a bit too light.

You can find this shade at Ulta, CVS, or Amazon.

Another Creative Twist on the Guest Book

How about a Keepsake Poster. I just love this idea! Have your guest sign this 24×36 poster then frame it.

Wish I would have created this before my wedding.

Live this.

I just love this Swedish proverb. I will be keeping this in mind as I visit friends and family in New York

and meet our new nephew! What are you doing this holiday weekend?

Library Style Boxes, Oh The Possiblilites

As you may have guessed, I love boxes.  Especially vintage library looking boxes.  How gorgeous is this floral display photographed by Jose Villa?!  I am always trying to come up with new ways to use all of the boxes I have collected over the years.  I will definitely file this idea away for our next house.

As far as using this idea for a wedding, I would add little note cards to some of the drawers to be used as a guest book table.  Each drawer could be labeled with a prompt like “The best part of today has been…”  Or maybe fill some of the drawers with photos of the couple and their family.
