Ok everyone...our mini hiatus is over and we are over the moon with what is to come. We took the week off to make some major changes that we hope you will love as much as we do. We are changing platforms and we have given the blog a new fresh look. There will be more detail on what we went through this week on ...THE NEW BLOG!!
It will be the same blog, same name and the same content...just better!
The most important things for us is that all of you come along for the ride and meet us on the other side. Sadly we decided to move out of blogger but we think that it will be for the better. It is bitter sweet since this is where we started back when we were still Pink Peony. There is only moving forward from here.
Starting tomorrow you will be re-directed to our new .com site. We hope to see you all there for a visit. Please stop by and say hi or even a "follow" would be nice =)
Before we began Lambs & Kings, we coordinated wedding events for lovely couples with lovely weddings. Last year, we had the pleasure of coordinating a drop dead gorgeous wedding in Aptos, Ca at the the Pacific Estate and Vineyard. It was a cute country chic estate that had a small vineyard and a large lawn and patio that overlooked the Santa Cruz mountain scenery. It was a perfect setting for vintage inspired chic wedding which is exactly what our clients were dreaming of. My bride is super creative and dreamt up the whole event and knew exactly what she wanted from the shades of pink, to the collected vintage glass, vintage typewriter guestbook, and tons of crafty projects! Everything was meticulously thought out.
We were so giddy to find out that this wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty yesterday!! Its not a surprise as the event was so beautiful and photog Stephan Pappas did a superb job capturing it and Nicole Ha created a beautiful feel with her stunning florals. The entire team was great. Head on over to Style me Pretty to see the FULL post and all the glorious images.
This is just a small peek. Give them some love on the SMP site! Seeing these images reminds me how much fun we had doing weddings and working with all our awesome clients and vendors...seriously, all of them are awesome. We definitely do miss it. However, since we are super busy with the business re branding process, and the possibility of going back to school and/or starting a family, we had to put it on hold this year. We are planning to start styling events and doing prop design soon with the focus more on intimate events such as smaller/intimate weddings (such as this one), parties and showers and photo shoots. Stay tuned!
Do you have a wonderful eye catching wedding that you want to share?! Let us know!
As promised, we built our little terrarium this past weekend. The hubs and I have wanted to add some greenery to our home and given that the both of us do not a have a particularly green thumb, making a cute lovely terrarium was a great solution. Above is my first succulent terrarium... I'm super smitten over it! It now lives on one of our side tables in the living room next to a nice little window. I followed the diy from Birdhouse, which I mentioned last week. We used the open face terrarium bowl we bought from west elm because it had nice space to put different plants and it was easy to use with it's wide open face. I figure, its my first one so I need to make this as simple as possible.
I collected all my materials which included a glass container, pebbles, active charcoal (can get at a pet store. Its used in aquariums), succulent soil and an assortment of succulent plants.
It was pretty easy to make. First you put a layer of pebbles in, then mix in some active charcoal, put your soil on top of that mixture and then place your plants as you please...and voila!!
The total project cost me about $40 but I have all material to make up to 3 more terrariums ( i bought too many succulents and the bag of soil and carton of charcoal gives you a ton) so after I make those 3 it will come out to be about $10 a terrarium. This is definitely a budget friendly project that makes a lovely gift for someone or if you are just looking for a low maintenance way to add some lovely green to your home.
Our first Grab Bag Series! We have so many things to share so why not just lay it all out there!? We collect all this awesomeness and eye candy while scouring the internet and making our way through our reader articles.... SO. MUCH. STUFF! No sense in keeping you waiting. Hopefully you like this new installment and come back to visit for our next GBS. We plan to do this grab bag series every few fridays.
This weekend, I am planning on getting my hands a little dirty and doing some planting and gardening. On my to do list is finally making a succulent terrarium for the house. I'm trying to spruce up my green thumb and I'm thinking this low maintenance project will be the right start. I've scoured the Internet researching instruction, care tips, and creative ideas for a terrarium. Succulents have a such a special place in my heart and they always look so cute and lovely so I have decided to use succulents over other plants such as tillandsia (air plants). You can choose to do any kind of terrarium and from all the research I've done, it seems like the same type of materials are needed. Check them out below
Make the Terrarium your own by choosing a unique container. There are tons of options. I personally love cloches and West elm's wide selection of terrarium glassware.
As for the "How To", here is the diy that I am following from Birdhouse Diy + Design. I chose one that was simple and straightforward. Be sure to read the care and watering instructions. Very helpful! Feel free to share ones that have been successful for you.
