    {DIY} Cupcake Liner Garland

    DIY cupcake liner garland
    Happy DIY Tuesday!  Today I’ve got another DIY from new contributor Mariana from So Much Life.  She’s sharing a fun cupcake garland for us that is perfect for Spring and Easter parties.

    Step 1: Choose a large and a small sized cupcake baking cup. Separate each cup, one by one, and display everything on the top of a table.

    Step 2: Flip the smaller cupcake baking cups.

    Step 3: Paste, with hot glue, the smaller cupcake baking cups inside the bigger ones.

    Step 4: Merge with hot glue the two cups above the twine.

    And you could use any color and pattern of liner for whatever type of party you want to have.  I love the pastels but neon would be really fun too!  Thanks again to Mariana from So Much Love (she’s also got another blog called So Much Life – check them both out. While they’re both in Portugese, they are FULL of pretty visual inspiration, one wedding-focused and one crafty!)

    Are you loving these DIYs we’ve been having from our fabulous new contributors?  If you have an inner Martha just dying to get out, email me to send your submissions my way and you could be featured too. We’ve got an Easter-themed one from Mariana coming up next week too!  Until then, happy DIY’ing.

    Floral Centerpiece Ideas for Spring

    spring wedding centerpiece idea

    Spring is (almost) officially here, which means Spring wedding season is upon us.  If you are still finalizing your florals or planning a wedding for next Spring, I’m sharing some pretty centerpiece ideas for your Spring wedding.

    {Vibrant Peaches & Pinks}

    What says ‘Spring’ more than brightl colors?  The incorporation of peonies and peaches in your centerpieces are perfect for your Spring wedding.  The sherbert colors are fresh, warm, and fun.

    {Yellow & Green}

    Don’t daffodils just announce spring when they start popping up?  When I was a little girl, my favorite thing about spring was when our hillside turned yellow with daffodils and I would pick bouquets everyday.  This mix of daffodils, tulips, snowdrops, and ranuculus make the perfect spring table.

    {Pretty White Tulips}

    The flower that most symbolizes Spring for me is the tulip.  Make them even lovelier by grouping a large group of white tulips together.  I also love large groupings of white hydrangea (another great bloom that shows up in Spring).

    {Soft Pastel Spring Florals}

    If brights or whites aren’t your thing, these muted pastel florals also make lovely Spring centerpieces.  Need more pastel wedding inspiration?  Check out this pastel palette inspiration. And did you know you can search by color and season on Oh Lovely Day?  Yep! Just hover over ‘Inspiration’ in the navigation menu and a drop down menu will appear for color, style, and season.

You can find a handy cheat sheet for what florals are in season when here.  And be sure to follow our Lovely Florals board on Pinterest for lots more inspiration.

    {Real Wedding} Giliah & Erez: Quirky DIY Wedding in Jerusalem

    quirky and whimsical DIY wedding in Jerusalem
    Sometimes I get a submission from a bride who was an avid reader of Oh Lovely Day, and sometimes that bride’s wedding is an absolute perfect representation of what this blog is all about.  Today is one of those weddings.  When Giliah, the bride, sent me her wedding she also said something that made my whole week:  
     
    “I was really in love with your blog before I even got engaged and used to look at it and fantasize all day long. Once we got engaged it was so helpful in the planning process and it really warms my heart that our wedding is going to be a part of it.” Read More »
