{It’s in the Details} Vintage Paper

Using vintage paper to decorate for your wedding is a great way to be eco-friendly (it is recycling, after all!) and to also add some personalized vintage elements in your decor.  Whether you reuse old sheet music, newspaper, or pages from vintage books (use ones already in bad shape rather than destroying nice vintage books), you can do lots of cool things with vintage paper.

{It’s in the Details} Set the Table, Beautifully.

What is better than a beautifully set table?  Find at least one way to make your table unique and personal.  If you are having a smaller wedding, I especially love the look of mismatched vintage china in your place settings.  Some other ideas:  use vintage teacups to hold small containers of florals, use vintage crystal punch cups to hold tea lights, make or find a table runner out of a different texture (burlap, crochet, etc.), use lots of color, or a complete lack of color (like the all white table below), tuck a flower in the napkin or place a piece of fruit on the plate.  There are so many ways to set a beautiful table.


And here is another perfect example just featured on Style Me Pretty, shot by Laura Novak:

{It’s in the Details} Mason Jars in your Wedding Decor

Mason jars have become very popular in wedding decor lately.  But there are lots of ways to incorporate this vintage element into your wedding decor besides using them as containers for your floral arrangements (although they are great as containers!)  Here are some different ways I have found for you to use mason jars in decorating your wedding (or party, or home):

Top Row:  Drink jar by Sabine Scherer, jar with river rocks and candle by Kate Harrison, jar chandelier by Jamie Grenough via Style Me Pretty, hanging jars with florals by Jennifer Roper
Bottom Row:  Jar escort cards by Sean Walker, jelly jar drink by Ian Grant, lots of jars and candles via 100 Layer Cake, floating candle in jar by Jennifer Roper

I love the idea of using the jars as candle holders, either floating them in water or putting river rocks in the jar.  And how amazing is that mason jar chandelier!  I had to post another shot of it:

Etsy Favorites {#1}

I’ve been a vocal fan of Etsy since I started this blog, and I want to devote a post a week to my favorite new Etsy finds or sellers.  This week, I am loving these fun package wrapping supplies by Etsy seller maythird.  I love giving gifts and sending packages, and I think it is really important to wrap packages pretty!  They could also be incorporated into favors, escort cards, or on welcome bags for your wedding.
