WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Halloween Wedding

Of course for the Wednesday before Halloween I had to highlight the most interesting type of wedding I have found… a Halloween Wedding. For all those who love the spooky and scary, anyone Halloween obsessed would love this type of wedding! There are a lot of kooky things that can be involved with Halloween weddings but I picked my favorites, classy and Halloween obsessed. If you’re going to have your wedding on a holiday this is the one they go all out for!

HOME-SPIRATION: Coffee Tables

With my Starbucks in hand, how appropriate that I am writing about coffee tables. These little tables can be so much more than extra storage, or a place to rest your beverage, and I have found some amazing and unique coffee tables. I guess you really are an interior decorating nerd when you get this excited about a table, but I know you all do too! Here are some of my favorite coffee table home-spiration images!

unique, natural, and a total statement. Love.

WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Calligraphy

Okay it may just be the design geek in me but I LOVE handlettering. It is a skill I really wish I had and am definitely going to learn! All my graphic designer friends have such a talent for this and I am so jealous! I think the most important thing about planning a wedding is the details. That is what makes an event special. Calligraphy is not just something that you should use on invitations but almost everything! It can be an amazing detail to make your special day even more beautiful. Here are some of my favorite wedding day calligraphy inspirations and a few of my favorite calligraphy and hand lettering boutiques on Etsy!

HOME-SPIRATION: Open Kitchen Shelving

I have recently been stocking up our kitchen for the fall months, baking cookies, and anything pumpkin of course! We recently had to get some new kitchen storage for all of craziness. I was looking for exactly what I wanted and what felt right for our kitchen, and fell in love with the idea of open kitchen shelving. This is a new trend, and definitely a big choice to make. I think I’ll have to wait until we have prettier dishes, but I just LOVE this look. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for open kitchen shelving.
