These Are a Few of Our Favourite Pins – a Weekly Roundup

Wedding invitations have to be one of my favourite things to look at on Pinterest. I’m literally addicted to it, there are so many gorgeous ideas! So how do you go about choosing the right stationary for your big day? I always think the invite sets the tone for your guests, as well as all the important information(day, date, venue etc!), it gives them little clues to the vibe of your day.

We’re thinking long and hard about the scene that we want to set with our invites, relaxed garden setting with a few unexpected surprises … and … NOTHING FORMAL! I adore letterpress stationary and I’m big into lino printing at the moment (think posh potato stamps) and some sort of kraft paper is an absolute must.

Here are my current top 3 inspirational pictures

So I’m pretty head over heels with this invitation bundle. Gorgeous kraft paper envelope with the collection of coloured cards making it easy for your guests to take in each bit of information. I didn’t think I was a fan of black paper, but in this context it works wonderfully.

Invitations by Lauren Owen Design

I think you’ll agree, this stunningly simple invitation packs some punches on the design front. The elongated design really caught my eye and I love the bold monochrome print and a cute monogram. Combine all of that with a custom designed by Lauren font for the couple and its a winner! How awesome!

Invitations by Artcadia Stationary Co.

Peach … blue … rounded corners. Need I say more!

Like I said there is heaps of inspiration out there so get looking, and pinning.

We are a little addicted to craft at Green Parlour and Pinterest is full of gorgeous crafty ideas to get your teeth into. Here are a few of our favourite pins from our Pinterest adventures this week …

I stumbled upon this amazing Runaway Coffee Date dress pattern when it was re-pinned by Tilly (from Great British Sewing Bee fame) who runs Tilly and the buttons and of course I clicked right onto Four Square Walls to see where I could get such an ace pattern from. I should have known Etsy would be involved! If your after some unique patterns Pattern Runway do some lovely bits and pieces, well worth a look if your longing for some dress making time.

String, wool and some cleverly placed nails. Now all I have to do is convince the other half that this gorgeous DIY idea HAS TO grace to walls in our little abode. Such a simple idea, now to choose a word…
