inspiration board #22: birds of a feather
Good morning lovely people! What did you get up to this weekend? Wedding plans or DIY projects? Or maybe you had a weekend’s rest spending time with friends and family?
I started a new feature this weekend called Sunday Sweetness! A round-up of my favourite five intimate weddings from around the blogosphere this week? Did you see it? Be sure to check out some of the links for some beautiful bijoux inspiration!
Today’s inspiration comes from this pretty feather stationery suite I’ve had my eye on for quite a while. I love guinea fowl feathers (I almost included them in my own wedding!) so this sweet set caught my eye straight away. Not only is it completely gorgeous, but they are DIY! Yup, bride Elizabeth from pretty Danish blog Pretty Chic crafted these beauties herself! Wow, right? I also have to say I love how the images have been styled with the litle feather & button details. Swoon.
Anway enough of my rambling, let me tell you about this board! Love birds have been a popular wedding theme for a while now, but feathers not so much. So for a subtle and pretty take why not include soft feather details in the your groom’s boutonniere, or in your bouquet? I love the flapper-style ostrich feather headband from Twigs & Honey! The romantic pewter & blush colours work so beautifully with the delicate feathers, a creating a sense of elegance and calm. The sparkly bird earrings from BHLDN add a delicate touch of glamour.
