inspiration of the week: the wheatfield {etsy vendor love}
{image (c) the wheatfield} No matter what you think about pinterest, you have to admit, it does introduce us to so many inspiring things! I came across Katie Daisy's work a few weeks ago and wanted to share it with you today as a nice weekend kickoff. Is this not amazing? I'm pretty much obsessed. Here are some of my faves:   I feel kind of like she reached in to my head, found all of my favorite things, and painted them exactly as they are supposed to be. And that...

lovely flower ingredients: cooking up a fragrant bouquet
{all images taken with personal camera (c) jacin fitzgerald} i have so so so much on my list today but all i can think about is pulling these lovely blooms together for a very special bouquet. i put a note out there on facebook last week saying how much i've been dying to incorporate kumquats in a wedding bouquet and wouldn't you know it, a very special photographer happened to have the perfect bride looking for something fun, whimsical and with lots of color, and a match was made. so...
floral inspiration: peonies, ranunculus and succulents, oh my {ella bella floral}
{all images and floral design by ella bella floral in cache, utah} it's very rare that i post things i did not craft or design myself here these days, but when i came across these stunning florals by ella bella floral, i literally was left speechless and absolutely had to share them with you for inspiration. are these not some of the most gorgeous flowers you've ever seen? my favorite part about flower design is pulling together all of the "ingredients" for an arrangement, because every...
cupid’s arrow {valentine’s day sentiments and an impromptu love shoot}
{image by gladys jem, styling by lld for last year's valentine's shoot} valentine's day to me means homemade valentines from my family, and conversation hearts. lots of them. my mom used to surprise us every year with a little box of those sweet little heart-shaped candies and it would always make me feel special. she would also make these cute little mini cupcakes with pink frosting and put a larger conversation heart on the top of each one, and i would bring them to school. that was...
A New LLD is on it’s Way…
I am busy prepping for a lovely wedding today down in Half Moon Bay, where I am not only doing the decor but I'm also pulling together the florals, something I absolutely LOVE to do. While I'm gone, though, I wanted to get you up to speed on some updates going on over here in LLD land. I am working with a very talented duo to revise my branding slightly, to something a bit more in line with the future of Lovely Little Details. Really not a drastic change, but just a few tweaks here and there...
Simple & Pretty Holiday Ornament Display: A Clear Cake Stand!
{personal image} While I am all about coordinating colors and design to make things pretty, our Christmas tree is a design-free zone - it is filled with mismatched (and sometimes tacky) ornaments that hold so many memories for each of us, and we wouldn't have it any other way! This year we realized we had way more ornaments than would fit on the tree, and we almost threw some of these metallic ball-shaped ones away. As I was cleaning the kitchen, including our clear cake stand (that doubles...
Hipstamatic Pop-Up Restaurant Recap & Pictures {Rustic California Style}
{all images taken with my personal camera} Wow, what a crazy/fun/exciting past few days it's been! From a short trip to New York City for one of our best friend's wedding, to the Hipstamatic pop-up restaurant event I styled on Thursday, it's been non-stop madness! I'm going to let the pictures do the talking on this one - so here are some of my favorite shots (all taken with my personal camera, please credit if you use elsewhere) from the event! The chef was so happy with the decor and...
Inspiration: Taking Pashminas Past the “Keep Warm” {Fun Decor Idea}
{image by Aaron Delesie, full wedding on Snippet & Ink} First off, if you didn't see Regina & Zaheen's wedding on Snippet & Ink a few months back, you must. It's kind of one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. But one thing that stuck in my mind specifically, was how they used pashmina scarves to accent the decor on their chairs. I had seen this once before at one of my best friends' wedding, as she had pashminas as "table runners" on the cocktail tables to bring a...
Inspiration: Pretty Ribbon Photobooth Backdrop
{image by Ryan Farr, full wedding here on Ruffled} Oh, you pretty little ribbon backdrops. Nothing new, I know. But that doesn't mean I can't still like them, a lot. I created a similar photobooth backdrop for the Fizz & Frills launch party, greet.meet.eat using crepe paper and fringe scissors, but I think any ribbons, rope, string, you name it would be just as pretty and fun. And our photobooth pics from the amazingly talented (and awesome) Gary Sexton! Photobooth backdrops,...
