DIY ROPE TABLE RUNNER

Sometimes the hardware store is your best friend when it comes to craft inspiration. Look at this lovely centerpiece made out of simple rope. (It could also double as a hot plate!) You could also go one step farther by adding a doily to the bottom to give it a nice trim. Found on Ruffled, get the full tutorial here.

OUTDOOR WEDDING IN SHADES OF PINK

Valentine's Day is not too far off and I am sure there are a lot of weddings planned for that weekend. Although this was a summer wedding, the shades of pink at this time of year seem completely relevant and inspiring. But what I love most is is the soft shades of pink they used, keeping the decor sophisticated and elegant... "blush and bashful"! Thank you to California photographer Your Lovely Wedding for capturing all the elegant and sparkly details and sharing them with us. It really looks like it was a picture perfect day!

MICKEY MOUSE PARTY BURSTING WITH COLOR!

Mickey Mouse is timeless. Every new generation becomes enamored with Mickey and his crew of fun Disney characters. Event designer, Lenee' Valentine in Virginia, gave little Jayden a Mickey Mouse party that is sure to make his first birthday memorable for all! The decor was filled with oodles of Mickey: balloons, cut-outs, cake, cookies and more, in a bold blue and red color palette. We're so happy she shared this fun-filled party with us!

AN (ALMOST) CUPCAKE SESSION!

I love this creative twist Canada photographer, Kristy Klaassen, put on the traditional cake smash photo session. Instead of using the finished cake product, Kristy gave this little one a chance at getting hands-on with the cake ingredients. With an illustrated stove and fun speech bubbles, this styled shoot told its own original story! And don't you love the different facial expressions she captured? How perfect!

DIY PHOTO BLOCKS

No doubt we all probably took way more photos than we needed over the last few months! Here's a great photo display from Mark Montano you can easily do to showcase them all. These would be so fun on a coffee table - where visitors could take a look at all the blocks. Find the full tutorial here.

MINIONS THEMED PHOTO SHOOT

My kids are already so excited to see the new Minions movie coming out in July. No doubt we'll see a resurgence of Minion parties! Great for a party theme and to bring it into photos of your kids, like this very fun one from Texas' Photography by TSM. What a great time it must have been taking this shoot of these adorable little minions!

AN ENGLISH SEASIDE WEDDING

I always love to see how special occasions are celebrated in other countries. What kind of customs or traditions do they have? Are they passionate about DIY like we are? Judging by this wedding from England, the answer is YES! The bride's "mum" made the bunting, cake, table decorations and bouquet. Not sure if this is an old custom, but the bride and groom fired a cannon into the sea in honor of their marriage. Love it! The nautical theme can be used for any shower or special occasion especially celebrated outdoors. Thank you to the U.K.'s Tracey Ann Photography for capturing the memorable day and sharing it with us.
