Inspiration Board: A Pop of Yellow

I love a little spot of color to brighten up otherwise neutral outfits or decor. With summer here, I tend to go for the brightest color I can find! Yellow is one of my favorite ways to accomplish that cheerful summer spark.

Our Favorite Blog Posts: June 28 – July 5

Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July!  Here’s some of our favorite blog posts this past week:

artfully crafted atlanta wedding 9; Our Favorite Blog Posts: June 28   July 5

1.  Artfully Crafted Atlanta Wedding – The shots from this wedding (above) are completely gorgeous and original wedding photos. I love the intimacy created by the distance and the balcony. The rest of the wedding, featured on 100 Layer Cake, is full of similarly thoughtful details. Photography from W. Scott Chester Photography.

2. EGO-EGO-EGO – I love this letter, featured on Letters of Note, from Madonna to her producer and collaborator Pat Leotard. She comes off completely sincere, charming, and humble–it’s a really interesting side of Madonna and a great lesson in letter-writing to boot!

3.  Frank Lloyd Wright Letterhead – I would love receiving a letter written on this gorgeous letterhead from architect Frank Lloyd Wright featured on Letterheady! The few pops of color really let the intricate design shine.

 

Why Don’t You… July 2 & 3

6a00d83451c0f869e2014e896e1ed7970d; Why Dont You... July 2 & 3… make your own 4th of July menu and name tags? If you’re planning an especially large and festive 4th of July celebration this year, you’ll love this tutorial from {frolic} for making your own menu and name tags in a perfectly patriotic style. They’d make a perfect addition to your decor.

b; Why Dont You... July 2 & 3… make child-sized aprons? Any future chefs out there love having their own kitchen equipment, including an apron that actually fits them properly! This tutorial for aprons for kids made out of placemats is one of the coolest and cutest I’ve ever seen. Plus, they’d make a sweet gift for a pint-sized chef.

liberty3; Why Dont You... July 2 & 3… make a 4th of July headband? It can be difficult to dress the part for the 4th without looking overly red, white, and blue. When I came across this idea for a DIY headband fit for someone like Lady Liberty herself, I saw what a patriotic and stylish addition could be made to any outfit. I love that it can be a headband or clip, there are so many ways to make this craft your own!
