i really love weddings- mainly because they almost always inspire some sort of entertaining ideas for regular parties. i love picking through martha stewart weddings every month and picking up little ideas for gift wrapping, setting a dinner table, or a casual brunch with friends. i know some people bristle at the idea of weddings, but for me, they’re always just a jumping off point for general entertaining. so with that in mind, i wanted to share this beautiful photoshoot produced by sierra & juliet of poppies and posies and jackie of merci new york. sierra, juliet, and jackie organized a handful of local designers, stylists, bakers, and other talented people to collaborate on a photoshoot (shot by whitney & dustin of oh, darling!) focused on providing inspirational ideas for brides and grooms to be.
whether you’re planning a wedding or just a dinner-party for friends, i love the idea of using terrariums as centerpieces- and using tiny vintage glass bottles to create even tinier terrariums people could take home as gifts. i don’t think i’ve ever met a birdhouse i didn’t like, so i love the way they’ve used one as a favor center, though for a party i think i’d use one as a centerpiece and fill it with candles. there are all sorts of fun entertaining ideas in here (as well as more wedding-focused ideas like stationery and flowers) so be sure to click “read more” below to view all 10 images and get links to all of the talented artists involved in the shoot. thanks, whitney!
