    Love is in the Air

    Posted by Michelle

    Today’s post is dedicated to one of my favorite motifs — love birds. It’s one of our most popular themes for our welcome gifts and favors. I was inspired to include them on N&L Notes, because I think it’s the perfect theme for a hometown, backyard summer wedding!

    Wallcandy Arts

    Posted by Michal

    Sadly, I am leaving my beloved apartment and moving to a rental apartment not too far away while renovating. Since I can’t put any art on the walls, I wanted something for my son’s nursery to give him some pep and color, and was delighted with the designs from Wallcandy Arts. They have a fantastic variety of adorable scenes and designs to choose from, and I’m loving the NYC one for our location. I’m also planning on putting up … Read More »

    In the Round

    Posted by Michelle

    Happy Friday!  I wanted to end this week with one of the most beautiful ceremony photos ever.  What a beautiful idea and image it makes to get married in a circular setting… the couple completely surrounded on all sides by their loved ones.  Sweet, simple, and memorable.

    Shop Love: Terrain

    Posted by Michal

    I love the wonderful vintage-inspired offerings from Terrain, an online store that has everything from garden & home accents and furnishings to rare findings for your pantry and bath. My favorites include precious Himalayan salt, a great gift for any foodie, beautiful ceramic hurricanes, and a vintage style milk jug pitcher. The gem amongst them is the chalkboard creamer – no more guessing skim, whole or cream! Genius!

    I am a huge fan of adding some sparkle to your wedding.  Now of course glitter can be overdone, so limit it to the details in terms of your decor and fashion.  And stick with neutral metallics, like silver, gold, rose gold, etc. – that will add just the right amount of shine to your special day!

    Decorating with Wedding Decals

    Posted by Michal

    Decals are a fun way to add color and theme to a blank wall, a “just married” getaway car, a dance floor or even chairs. Relatively inexpensive compared to fabric draping or florals, decals are fun and customizable with your monogram, wedding colors, or theme.

    Watercolor Wedding

    Posted by Michelle

    One way to incorporate a lot of vibrant colors into your wedding, but in a soft, elegant way is to have a watercolor theme.  The subtle effects of watercolor are beautiful and romantic in fabrics, stationery, and flowers.
