BLOGGING / PARTY / Wedding Ideas

handmade wedding


I am thrilled today to give you a small sneak peak into the book Handmade Wedding that I am a contributing author to. I just received it in the mail and LOVE seeing my designs in pretty paper print (so fun!). For the book, I prepared a handful of easy handcrafted wedding projects and am pleased to be showcased alongside other amazing craft stylists like Amy Moss and Olivia Kanaley. The book is being published by Penguin Press Australia and features page after page of beautifully designed and gorgeously photographed projects to make your wedding day (or any party) special.

I want to share a few of the projects that I contributed for the book. Although, none of the styling or photography was done by me I think they did a splendid job showcasing the finished products and compiling all the text. For the complete DIY tutorials you will need to get a hold of the book.

PS. I cannot stop smiling every time I glance at the book, I’m all kinds of school girl giddy about it:)

    holy moly, congrats! I’ll definitely be picking this baby up when it comes out – love the wreath and I actually made vintage fabric boutonieres for my groomsmen and they didn’t turn out half as nice as the ones you made! Can’t wait to see more.
