Jenny’s Flower Project

November 23rd, 2009 @ 1:31 pm by Megan @ Princess Lasertron

Several months ago I had lunch with my friend Jenny, who ordered a felt flower kit to make her own embroidered flower stems at home to keep in a vase on her desk. The other day, she sent me the results of what she had put together–I love these so much!

DIY Holiday Gifts (Or Favors)

November 12th, 2009 @ 10:49 am by Wiley Valentine

It’s getting to be that time of year again when I start brainstorming about what gifts I will make/give this holiday season. Each year I like to give the ones I love something handmade. I find these are always the best kinds of gifts and the ones people appreciate the most. They are also a lot of fun! This is where I begin - I have put together an inspiration board for myself to start the creative juices flowing. I looked mostly at DIY wedding favors as these can easily double as holiday gifts. I like the fact that many DIY brides are thinking of something personal and meaningful to give as wedding favors - exactly what I want to achieve for my holiday gifts!

Food is high on my list of ideas since both my husband and I love to cook, it definitely brings in that personal touch. My inspiration above came from: 100 layer cake. We love jam; check out their recipe and DIY instructions! Love this especially if you grow your own fruit!; the next images also from the fabulous 100 layer cake are more for visual inspiration although I am loving the coffee and tea bags and those handmade caramel apples! brilliant!

Phil and Amy’s Wedding

September 16th, 2009 @ 1:03 pm by Megan @ Princess Lasertron

I loved working with Amy and Phil on their August wedding in the UK–I love my international brides! Amy and Phil look so happy together and paid so much attention to every detail. Amy did an awesome job with the decor and even made an adorable little felt boutonniere for each of her groomsmen (and she sent me one, too!). I’ll let Amy say more about her big day in her own words…

Table numbers

Thanks to Christina Loff at Chronicle Books for sharing the adorable photos from her friends Julie & Joe’s wedding. Our favorite details were these embroidered table number flags — in Christina’s words, they gave the wedding a “shipwreck feel” - appropriate, since it was on the beach!

Kim @ Inspired Goodness's Picture
Kimberly Canale, Brooklyn, NY Vendor: Event Designer Website: Inspired Goodness About Me: From the moment the engagement ring was slipped onto my finger, I've been in love with all-things-wedding. I still get teary eyed reading proposal stories in magazines and love sneaking a peek at a bride and groom glancing at one another for the first time, as the ceremony is about to begin. With each of my clients, I get to know their personality, family background and hear the story of how they met and fell in love. Each piece becomes another element from which I use to build the overall vision for their wedding day. As the Creative Director at Inspired Goodness, my job is to create the various details that makes each of our weddings come to life. My work incorporates classic elements; engraving, hand calligraphy and vintage typography. Using a mix of found objects and flea market pieces lends a rich history to my work and challenges me to find creative ways to use mass-produced elements, each with a chic and timeless result. With every new client, I get to explore avenues I've yet to pass and love knowing that the next adventure is just around the corner!
About Kim @ Inspired Goodness

I have to admit that while this wasn’t an original idea of mine, I loved the idea of adding this simple and personalized embellishment to my wedding shoes. If you’re not able to spend the $75 Stuart Weitzman charges for this same service, you can easily tackle this project yourself. That said, I’ve put together this little step-by-step tutorial to help you recreate this same look.

It’s a fun way to incorporate a little something blue into your ensemble and guests love asking to peek at the bit of bling you have on you. You may have seen this idea before when I decorated shoes for Mrs. Cupcake’s wedding.

Borrow this DIY idea…

August 31st, 2009 @ 4:03 pm by Wiley Valentine

Here are some of my favorite DIY ideas I have spotted around recently. Take a look, borrow, change them a bit to be your own, and voila! Handmade touches for your wedding day…

diyideas

These adorable picnic areas would make the cutest lounge area, forget the sleek white modern furniture, go for a more relaxed vibe with color coordinated pillows and blankets in the grass! Photo via Once Wed. Loving the vintage books piled up with the mason jar on top. What adorable center pieces these would make. Even during a cocktail reception these would be perfect! Photo via Once Wed. I am absolutely loving the look of these apple crates on the wall. Like shadow boxes. Photo via Style Me Pretty. I am a huge fan of the cheese platter, and this one is absolutely perfect. Spread out on a long wooden table with chalkboard name plates. Perfection! Photo via Style Me Pretty. The polaroids strung on a clothesline act as a guest book that everyone can enjoy at the reception. Photo via Style Me Pretty. Chalkboard used as a menu or bar menu…lovely. Photo via Style Me Pretty. Loving the vintage hankies that are used as napkins, seating cards and favors!! Love that! Photo via the Nichols. Lastly the sugar rimmed mason jars for your signature cocktail have the perfect blend of casual and chic for my taste! Photo via the Nichols.

flowers bouquet

Studio Choo completely inspires me. Every time a new photo of a gorgeous arrangement is posted on their flickr I get so excited. Their bouquets are sweetly composed and have a perfect homemade, I-just-picked-these-in-a-field feeling, which I love. They often use vintage vessels for their arrangements such as mason jars and milk bottles. Flowers that are often seen in their arrangements and bouquets include ranunculus, poppies, peonies, cosmos, zinnias, dahlias, and Queen Anne’s lace. Swoon!

Since we launched the Princess Lasertron Felt Flower Bouquet Kits last May, we blew our goal of selling 50 kits in 2009 out of the water in the first two months. As readers and customers began sending me photos of their finished creations, I started the Princess Lasertron photo pool on Flickr for everyone to share photos of their creations and inspire each other.

Here’s a look at some of the great projects that you have all shared in the Flickr pool….
