Action figure centerpiece

I think it definitely takes a certain kind of person to get this, but hey, if we can spray paint toy animals as placecards, why not action figures as centerpieces??

Guest post: Bouquet inspiration from The Bride’s Cafe

If you dont know Janie from The Bride’s Cafe, you’re really missing out!  She’s truly one of the sweetest ladies I know in the blogger world!

Hi, it’s Janie from The Bride’s Cafe and JMFlora Design…and I’m so excited to stop by Brooklyn Bride today and share a little floral inspiration with you guys…thanks so much Vané !!  So, guys, what’s your “Bouquet Style”…….I know you all love flowers, so don’t be shy!  Are you more of a “Monochromatic Bouquet” bride or are you loving the “Mixed Floral Bouquets”….personally, I’m loving them both…I can’t help it!

To help you decide, I’m sharing a few of my favorite bouquets in both styles….having a monochromatic bouquet is a great way to bring a “pop” of color into your wedding and it’s also brings simplicity…if you’re thinking of going this way, try using blooms such as peonies, tulips, and ranunculus…these beautiful blooms come in a variety of gorgeous bold colors and they are sure to make a statement on your wedding day!

If you are more of the “Mixed Floral Bouquet” kind of bride, then choose some of your favorite flowers in your favorite color palette and go for it….it’s your wedding day and what ever you choose….make it your own…xoxo
