Paper flower holiday wreaths by Hayley Sheldon | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=82411

You may recall the incredible turquoise paper flowers that artist + designer Hayley Sheldon whipped up for a bridal fashion editorial we featured back in April. Once we came across her pretty holiday wreaths the other day, we had to add a little somethin’ to the blog calendar ASAP. With holiday planning mode in full swing, you understand the urgency, yes?

After chatting with Hayley, it was obvious a little collab was in order! Check out her wreaths and see what she created just for 100 Layer Cake below. (Spoiler alert: There’s a giveaway involved!)

About her work, c/o Hayley…

For these wreaths, I was inspired by how changes in colors and textures can speak to different holiday decorating styles. One wreath, that I call Merry and Bright, channels a 1950’s “White Christmas” look, while another “Sugar Plum,” was inspired by the gorgeous jewel-toned costumes of the Nutcracker ballet. Lastly, the beauty of winter white is undeniable, and the “Winter Frost” wreath pays homage to a delicate snow fall but with lots of metallic, because hey, it’s the holidays! Love!

We’re fans of the Sugar Plum wreath, with holly sprigs and berry tones.

We were inspired by the rich tones and splashes of gold we’ve seen all season, but wanted to design something that would stay relevant and beyond the holidays. (Because hello, who wouldn’t want to display this all year?!) Hayley totally saw our vision and even used many of the color stories we’ve featured on the site lately as inspo for her design and crafting. Gorgeous, yes?

Hayley says, This collaboration was based on some of the beautiful color palettes recently featured on 100LC. I was looking for a balance between rich, bold reds and pinks and the more delicate petal shapes of the flowers themselves. Something both vibrant and feminine. To infuse a bit of shine I applied copper leaf to buds and leaves here and there. We think it works great as a winter wreath, but it can definitely transition into a special piece for all seasons.

Guys, there are quite a few reasons why we’re totally impressed by today’s winter inspiration shoot. Three in particular: 1) The team managed to add a classic white dress, white flowers, and other white details amongst a snowy backdrop while keeping things interesting and not a bit washed out, 2) The cake is equally epic and endearing, and 3) It was below zero degrees in Wisconsin when Erin Johnson Photography shot this.

Erin says, Sarah of On Solid Ground Vintage Rentals and I really wanted to do a winter shoot that didn’t have red in it since so many barn weddings have red as part of their color scheme. The turquoise is the perfect pop and the animals add just a little bit of quirky. I think it all came together so beautifully!

Say we’re still in Sunday mode, but this new line of sleepwear from San Francisco brand Terrimae sure has us in a cozy hang-out-on-the-couch kinda mood. Just launched this year, Terrimae focuses on quality, easy to care for (no hand wash or dry cleaning required!) loungewear made with luxurious fabrics from Japan. The blue design on the pieces was drawn by a London artist and custom-printed on all of the fabrics in Los Angeles. Then everything was cut and sewn in downtown San Francisco, resulting in a simple yet lux collection:

Founder Haley’s story…

Throughout this development process, I was coming across women of all backgrounds, interests, and talents who were helping me find my way, supporting and encouraging me. I am now in the process of finding ways to share their stories and women like them. Women deserve to be celebrated! We face unique challenges and I find it intriguing to hear how other women are redefining what it means to “have it all”… a concept I think we all struggle with.

Not only can you browse the Terrimae website for the perfect piece for you—like the tunic, shorts, kimono, or pants—you can read artist profiles highlighting the gals behind the collection. Neat, huh?

We can totally see a bride + her ‘maids all looking fabulous in the kimono robes. (*Ahem* Foreshadowing the giveaway below, here!)

All these cute pieces are made through one of the last manufacturers in SF, too.

And now a little somethin’ for 100 Layer Cake readers! Snag 15% off all Terrimae orders through Dec 14 with code 100LAYER.

Plus, Terrimae is giving away 5 kimono robes for one lucky winner to share with her bridesmaids or best pals. To enter, use the app below to share an image from this post on Pinterest. Extra entries can be earned by following Terrimae on Instagram. The winner will be announced via Terrimae’s Facebook page on Monday, Dec 15. Giveaway ends Dec. 14 at 11:59:59 PM PST.
