I’m excited to share a recent book project I had the opportunity to work on…Stylish Weddings: 50 Simple Ideas to Make from Top Designers by my friend Jenny Doh. The book is divided into 6 Chapters/Designers, with each devoted to a different style wedding, along with easy diy projects and ideas. It is full of inspirational content that could easily be adapted to all forms of party and entertaining celebrations.
For my contribution, I was asked to create Romantic and Pretty wedding ideas and decided to incorporate them into a bridal shower luncheon.
The gorgeous florals were provided by Lindsay Lemone of Flower & Water. Her work is absolutely stunning and the colors made everything “pop”!
I created a Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue bouquet that would be full of memories and mementos for the bride. Thanks to my amazing assistant on this shoot, Pam Garrison, for talking her daughter into being our hand model (and for all her hard work!). Couldn’t have done it without them!
There are 10 simple diy projects in my chapter including these Wishing Tree Tags…..
and Favor Treat Boxes….
Even if there aren’t any wedding bells in your near future, there are still some great ideas to make your next party shine! The other 5 contributors, each with beautiful chapters are Minna Mercke Schmidt, Corey Amaro, Serena Thompson, Tiffany Kirchner Dixon, and Tracy Schultz.

Between posts you can find me on Instagram (heatherbullard) sharing the little things in life.
The May issue of Country Living features a home I had the privilege of styling. It was a fun shoot to work on, with one of the sweetest homeowners I’ve ever met. She had such a creative eye and lots of ways to get “the look” for less!
I was able to find many of the antique props at a local store, M & M Antiques in Monroe, WA. They have a fantastic friendly staff, some of the best curated booths I’ve seen and really great prices! I wish I had one in my neighborhood because I’d be there on a weekly basis trying to hover over the new stock. Be sure to check our their FB page too…they post some of their recent finds and highlights from the vendors.
And a big thank you goes to Melaine for running errands, making returns and helping out with all the busy work that goes on behind the scenes! The lovely photos are from my friend, Victoria Pearson…you should see her portfolio, stunning!
You know what they say, better late than never, right? I’ve been meaning to share my trip to NYC with you and completely forgot. So let’s just pretend I got back last week instead of in December. We’ll begin with the shopping first, starting with Fishs Eddy. I’m not sure a trip to NYC would be complete without a visit here…there’s just so much good stuff.
When you walk in you’re greeted by this enormous display of waving ceramic hand molds….
And in the window they have a creative display of broken china…
And everywhere you look there are stacks, upon stacks, upon stacks of dishes. There are new and vintage pieces here, making for a great place to pick up lost pieces of a collection or begin an entirely new one. I’d start with the cake pedestals or white china.
And for you color lovers, there is plenty to choose from as well.
Like this tower of rainbow mugs or pile of colorful berry baskets…
And I thought this Brooklynese Cawfee Set was a crack up!
If you can’t make a trip to NYC, Fishs Eddy has a great website and their prices seem very reasonable. I know the next time I’m in the city, I’ll be spending more time here. It’s one of those perfect sources for prop inventory, and home goods!
