We always get a little excited when the seasons change – new takes on event design, more wedding trends to try out, and the best part… lots of beautiful seasonal blooms. In celebration of all the lovely fall events we’ve seen so far, we’ve put together a few (okay, more than a few) of our fave autumn bouquets. From ferns to feathers to fall foliage… we must say, these arrangements are pretty genius. Click through the slideshow to see them all! xo
We’re feeling a bit crafty this morning, so how about we start the day off with a little DIY? We just shared a super cute DIY bridesmaid glam gift idea over at LaurenConrad.com, but honestly, why stop at one? Your bridesmaids are your best gals, so chances are you’re putting a ton of thought into their gifts. As a result, we came up with another angle for a thoughtful gift, this DIY pamper basket. See the how-to below to show your ‘maids how much you appreciate them with the gift of relaxation. Say it with us now: Ahhh.
Our DIY gift contains:
- custom aromatherapy perfume (a combination of essential oils and a carrier oil, like jojoba).
- DIY herbal tub tea
- coconut milk lotion
- body brush and loofah
- lip butter
- pink clay soap
- spa headband
- salt hair spray
…All tucked inside a pretty basket.
And for the herbal tub tea:
As for scents, some lovely combinations to make are…
5 drops rose + 3 drops sandalwood
Then, put the aromatherapy oil and jojoba in a pretty rollerball perfume container.
Pretty, right? What do you guys think?! Don’t forget to see our post on LaurenConrad.com for more bridesmaid gift inspiration!

With this sparkly gold shoot, Jessica of Kill’s Custom Creations + Emily Jane Photography glammed up Michigan’s Old Town Marquee, a spacious loft with huge windows and exposed brick walls. For the theme, Emily explains, We weren’t afraid to put gold next to silver or rose gold on gold. There were no rules. The end result? A glittery vignette both elegant and playful…
How fun is this gold calligraphy by Paper & Honey?! They went with this look for all the paper products throughout.
Just saying, this incredible Badgley Mischka gown is on sale at Saks right now…
Everything had an air of Old Hollywood glamour, from hair and makeup to the table spread, and stylist Kill’s Custom Creations put all the elements together quite seamlessly.
A metallic cake is a pretty good way to top off a glitzy evening, we think.
Thanks to the team below for all the ideas!
