Blogs we love: One Kings Lane Style Blog

At My Little Flower Shop, we look for inspiration everywhere. There are loads of terrific wedding blogs, and we’re glad to be a part of that sphere. But we also reach outside of it for ideas.

One Kings Lane, a flash sale site for high end decor, offers a curated look at the best in home design. They even pick a favorite Pinterest board once a week- and as someone who’s lost entire afternoons deep in the home design boards, some help focusing is a godsend as far as I’m concerned. I definitely recommend checking out the One Kings Lane Style Blog

My Little Flower Shop Wedding Centerpiece Goes To A “Kate Spade” Party

A modern wedding centerpiece from our website was featured in a blog today about translating your favorite clothing designer’s “look” into a look for an event. Our wedding centerpiece was put on an inspiration board for a Kate Spade-styled event.  How delightful!  Thanks to Dana from Big City Farm Girl, and to Lindsay from Pinklet and C for including us in this fun concept.

Hi Everyone, I’m Dana – fashion lover, DIY enthusiast, blogger over at Big City Farm Girl, and good friend of Lindsey’s! I’m super excited to be posting over here at Pinklet and C. I wanted to make my post both fun and inspirational and came up with the idea of translating one of my favorite designers into an awesome party. When a designer creates a collection it needs to be cohesive, inspirational, eye catching, and make everyone go “wow.” Well don’t you want the same reaction when throwing a dinner party, birthday celebration, or bridal shower? Incorporating a certain designer’s aesthetic is a way to make your party both  fun and fashionable. One of my favorite designers out there right now is Kate Spade. I’m in love with her bold, gorgeous, bright pieces and jewel tone accessories and of course classic polka dot prints. So why not take this look and plan a party around in?

Thanks Lindsey for having me over here at Pinklet and C. I would love for everyone to stop by my blog and say hello!

You, Your Family, and Your Wedding.

Your family's right behind you, all the way. For this bride, literally!

By their nature, most weddings (the exceptions being these excercises in opulent navel gazing and their brethren) are about celebrating the family. Yours, his, and the great big new one that just came together.

But making planning the event a family affair makes a lot of brides break out in hives.  And it’s understandable. There are always enough opinions to go around, and when some of them come from people who drive you a little over the edge to begin with, things can get a little tense.  How can’t however, shut everyone out, particularly if they are helping pay for your big day.  Here are a few ways to integrate the bunch into your plans without going bananas.

  • Supermodel, Work!  Nothing makes female relatives feel more “in” on the process than a trip to the bridal salons to watch you do your best runway walk in gorgeous gowns.  It doesn’t have to be “the” time you plan to buy, or even “the” store you plan to visit.  Make an appointment, and try on a variety of shapes and styles.  Even better, let each woman who’s with you pick a dress for you to try.
  • Scavenger Hunt.  Have you been looking for ¾ inch gold ribbon? Rhinestone swizzle sticks? Is Aunt Sue on your last nerve about how you’re not organized properly? Send her on a treasure hunt for those last items you need that are hard to find, or available only at that one store on the other side of town.  She’ll feel useful, and you’ll get some peace and quiet.
  • Keep the content current on BNN – The Bridal News Network.  There are going to be people who you’re not in touch with daily who’ll want to feel like insiders.  Whether it’s a weekly call to Grandma, or a blog for far-flung sorority sisters, make sure that those who want news get it.

Families go a little haywire when it comes to weddings. But they love you, and are only making you crazy because they want to share this special experience, too. Handle as you do all things you love – with care.

Care well, and love well.

-Dinah
