Donna Wilson inspired tablescape with DIY planters

Finishing up with the Donna Wilson inspiration today with a last tablescape from Matthew Robbins.  They were able to utilize a lot of the same succulents from yesterday in a totally different way, just proving there are so many options out there when it comes to centerpieces!  Paired with painted DIY’d concrete planters and a painted graphic kraft runner, this is a decidedly more modern look, perfect for a bridal shower or low key wedding.  The planters end up making great favors at the end!

Mossy Donna Wilson inspired tablescape

Continuing on with the Donna Wilson theme, I asked Matthew Robbins and his team if they would be interested in trying their hand at interpreting a tablescape inspired by Donna…they not only did 1, but 2 inspiring tabletops, but today we’ll focus on this spectacular one utilizing moss & succulents.  It was actually inspired by a rug that Donna had seen while in Milan, and really does make for a striking centerpiece…so ethereal and whimsical!  Be sure to check back tomorrow when we take elements from this tablescape and make an entirely new one!

Cool cake series: Donna Wilson inspired

donna wilson inspired wedding cake

I probably say this every time, but this is definitely one of my favorite cakes that Betsy of Nine Cakes made for this series.  Donna Wilson has long been an inspiration for me in the design world, with her kooky knit creatures and home & fashion accessories, but I’ve never seen it worked into weddings so it was definitely something I wanted to tackle.  So many details for the cake were taken from a multitude of Donna Wilson projects to create this little masterpiece, and I couldn’t be more in love with it.  Just look at that cake topper!!

Cool cakes series: ombre studs

 blue green ombre studded wedding cake

This month’s modern wedding cake by Nine Cakes was inspired by this ombre studded bag DIY….its amazing how nicely it translated into fondant right?  I love how its not a super sweet, girly looking wedding cake…the studs give it a distinct bad-ass look, but its still fun and playful.
