The V Spot

Rants, observations and home decorating from a woman with no time for a blog.

I’m already married, but that doesn’t mean I can’t look…

… at this fabulous wedding blog! (sheesh, what did you think I meant?)

My friend Jen writes Something Turquoise and I just had to share it with all of you! So, yeah, I’m not planning a wedding, but I go over there just to be inspired.  I may already be married, but that doesn’t mean I never throw parties, or want to see pretty pictures!

For example, look at this photo she posted from a wedding reception... I don’t care what you’re planning.

That’s an old book, with a house number on it, used as a table number…. Did you all just smack your hands to your foreheads and say, Holy cow, that is genius!!? (cuz I did.)

Jen also has fabulous tips and do cute DIY projects. She just did the most simple, sweet GENIUS idea for chocolate tasting.  How cute is this?!

How fun would this be at your next Girls’ Night?  Or a Baby Shower?  Or as a party favor?  I’m loving this idea!

She spotlights amazing wedding photographers and their shoots (like this one) and gorgeous dresses, but she also has handy tips that can be used for any type of party planning, like making an easy seating chart

She does great tutorials as well.  How about some of these adorable fabric push-pins

or maybe a simply gorgeous flower arrangement using scotch tape and a Trader Joe’s ready made bouquet…?

In addition to all of the fabulous DIYs she shares, she features her favorite etsy shops, ideas for party favors, pinterest inspiration boards and beautiful photography.

Please go visit her… but be warned: you’ll get over there and be scrolling through all of the eye candy that is there and probably pinning away like crazy.  I pinned several items just putting together this post.

Remember, even if you’re married, it’s OK to look at wedding inspired blogs.

Ding, ding...that is a great blog. One day Rondell and I will renew our vows and I'd love to do something simple & classy. I love the mason jars and the book to number the tables. Where was the seating chart tip when I was planning? Thanks for sharing.

Great ideas!!! I could TOTALLY do the seating chart idea. Now I just need someone to ask me to help them plan a party. This could take a while...

I love little jars and making gifts out of them.
