Originally I had planned my wedding for the summer, so I had a really nice color palette going.  I had planned for a chartreusey-olivey green, with a pink coral color and lots of off-white.  Had we had a wedding party, the groomsmen were going to wear tan seersucker suits with the green ties and the bridesmaids a lovely coral color.  I had wanted to do it sort of 20’s/Great Gatsby style, as much as I could.  However, the dates kept changing, and before you know it, the date was set for late September.  Since the wedding was going to be in a family friend’s back yard, I thought that it would be nice to incorporate fall-ish colors while still being bright and cheery.  My family liked to call it derisively brown, orange and green, but I think that the colors ended up being a bit more subtle.  I was using paint chips, but here’s a nicer version of the colors I ended up with:

I hope this helps set the stage for the next few days!  Tomorrow I’ll be blogging about flowers and what you can do to minimize the cost and maximize the impact.

So you might have noticed that I’m obsessed with terrariums, and I found a great seller on etsy that makes them!

Her shop name is Made By Mavis and she has an awesome assortment of terrariums in different shapes and sizes.  Plus, the shipping is totally reasonable!  When I got mine, the first thing I did was open it up and have a little smell – there’s nothing like the smell of damp earth to brighten up your day.  I hope you’ll pay her a visit and get one of your very own!

Friday faves are coming today – had some computer issues that I can hopefully resolve.

Since it’s Valentines day, and I’m not too into the whole lovey-dovey pink and red hearts thing, I thought that I would share something else that I love.  And that is…terrariums!   I’m living out here in the desert and I can try to fill my house with succulents and other things that I can’t kill but part of me secretly yearns for moss and grass and a little relative humidity.  I was going to use terrariums for centerpieces at my wedding last year, however, I was quickly vetoed (though I still think it’s a good idea).  It hasn’t dampened my enthusiasm!

A variety of choices...

It’s amazing the different configurations and designs that you can come up with.  There are so many awesome jars and glass bottles out there, you could fill your house with tiny terrariums.

I like the idea of displaying several of them in a grouping for maxiumum visual impact.

This one is super swank.  It’s made of recycled glass and created using wind energy.  How green!  Find it here at Velcocity.

Gorgeous!

This one may be one of my favorite compositions.  It’s literally oozing with moss!  Oh, how I have dreams about this…

If you’re super excited about making your own, you can find a great tutorial here at Domino.  Happy crafting!
