We love Chalkboards…

4 Apr

It’s no secret among my friends and family that I have a slight (ok, huge) obsession with chalkboards- I have two in my apartment! So of course I react with pure excitement at seeing other people incorporating chalkboards into various aspects of their events.

 Could this be any sweeter…

      I love you much / most beautiful / darling / more than anyone / on the earth / and I like you / better than every / thing in the sky.

Hung on a tree in this Valentines Day wedding shoot from Green Wedding Shoes.

Caroline and Andrio used a chalkboard as a backdrop for the ceremony and the later as a photo booth backdrop. They also incorporated chalkboard-like features in other areas like these super cute seat place marks.

My favorite use of chalkboards is probably from this wedding in which the couple used it for the seating arraignments. I love the gorgeous frame on the board as well as the cute flower accents.

Here are some of my own chalkboard uses.

I would love to be able to paint a whole wall using chalkboard paint. Imagine the possibilities. How do you feel about using chalkboards- in the house or on your special day?

Headband inspriation…

8 Feb

When I was younger one of my favorite movies was The Princess and the Goblin. I loved the story (which by the way I find terrifying now) and I particularly loved Princess Irene’s headpiece. Dress up time always involved putting a necklace on my head so the charm would rest on my forehead, I felt so royal!

Of course seeing the model’s headwear in this wedding shoot styled by Finch and Thistle and photographed by Chantal Andrea Photography brought back good memories. It also sent me on a search for other headbands that can be worn on the forehead.

Inspiration from wedding photo shoot.

Casablanca headpiece from ban.do. My absolute favorite!

And of course Kim Kardashian had a similar style for her wedding.

We love this timeless trend and hope to see it around for quite a while. Did you wear a headpiece on your big day? What are other bridal looks you die for?
