Over the last few days I’ve been getting a few things together for St Patricks Day later this week. Although it’s not a day I traditionally celebrate, I love any excuse to decorate the house and come up with some new fun ideas and ways of arranging things. This is a small little table piece I created using some fresh garden clover and a sprinkling of gold stars. It’s super simple but felt so pretty and appropriate for the occasion. I’ve absolutely loved having it on my table this week.
I was feeling a little inspired during the week and created this cute arrangement of petunias for the kitchen window sill. I had the idea of using this small glass trinket dish as a vase to lay the flowers in horizontally so that the light would catch it from behind. It looked so pretty! I loved it so much that I felt the need to share it here! I love how the flowers glow, almost as if they are made of stained glass. I’m feeling really excited to try more arrangements like this now. A tip if you try this though – the water dries up really fast so it needs to be topped up often!
Silver Chandelier Earrings from Kmart
I’ve been doing a bit of shopping recently and felt so excited about some of the things that I found that I felt the need to share! I always love earrings and already have way too many but here a few that I couldn’t resist. I only just realised Colette Hayman have surgical steel posts on all their stud earrings which is so awesome as my earrings are super sensitive, it’s only that and silver that I can wear (so I stocked up on heaps!)
I’m in love with this rose skirt from Myer! Such a pretty design, the perfect length and shape – it really doesn’t need much as it’s so lovely in and of itself. I love it with red and with black so I’ve just stuck to that here, choosing some simple structured pieces to complement it nicely.
The last few posts like this I made an effort to find items that were affordable and available to everyone but I’m finding this takes a ridiculous amount of time and kind of takes the fun out of it for me. This time I’ve just used items that were promoted by Polyvore, mostly insanely expensive and on other side of the world so sorry about that! Hope you enjoy the styling anyway :)
Here are the links from Polyvore just in case you are curious about anything but please note that they are not chosen as shopping picks by me: Topshop biker jacket / Leona Edmiston clothing / Uniqlo clothing / Burberry over the knee boots / Verali flat shoes / David jones handbag / Suzywan DELUXE black earrings / Topshop earrings, / Faux fur shawl / ‘Lia’ Facetted Pod With Metal Tassel OLGA BERG / Loop Leather Co Madison
How would you style this gorgeous skirt?
Yay! I’m so happy I managed to get a post together in time for Valentine’s Day! I’ve had this one in mind all week and was beginning to feel worried that I wasn’t going to get a chance to post it! My original idea was to make some large pink watermelon hearts for a berry fruit salad but had to change that as I found I didn’t have a cutter. As a last minute change of plan I made some cute pastel-hued heart confetti from a super tiny heart cutter that I did have. I absolutely love how they turned out, they not only look super cute but are so yummy too. (more…)
I’ve had my eye on these garlic chive flowers for the past few weeks and now they are just beginning to open! I love the cute star-light quality of these flowers and feel they add such a nice detail to arrangements. I’ve really enjoyed having these flowers on my table, the colours and shapes feel so cheery together. The pink of this geranium is absolutely stunning too!
