State Stamped Cake Forks — #HANDMADEADAY

Happy Monday! Whew, what a fast weekend — but a great one at that! We’re kicking off the new week with our first #HANDMADEADAY find for the week. But first, have you stopped in at Woodenhive lately? Kerrie is pretty amazing: she turns ordinary vintage silverware into keepsake gifts by adding hand-stamped names, dates, and now — states! One of our favorite new finds in her shop is called ‘STATE IT’: a pair of cake forks with your state custom stamped onto the handle. Whether you’re from different states, you’re getting married away from home, or you want to show off where you met, this is the gift for you. I also love it just to show off your shared stately pride (go Michigan)!

Best Day Ever Banner — #HANDMADEADAY

Happy Weekend! When we told you about our new handmade-a-day series, we mentioned how we’d be unveiling a curated handmade item every day. That means every single day, all week long — weekends, too. :)

We’re popping in this weekend to share this beautiful decor find from The Lovely Glass Jar. This banner is large enough to make a dramatic statement anywhere you see fit: as a ceremony backdrop, as wall decor, or displayed above your dance floor. Here’s an example from a Real Wedding with a banner in gold:

Here’s another example for brides who prefer silver…

Wood Letter Wedding Decoration & Felt Flowers

I never thought I could love felt flowers almost as much as the real deal. But awhile ago when we talked about these felt wedding ideas and I couldn’t believe how beautiful felt could really be. And with further digging, I spotted this wood letter wedding decoration over at The Felt Flower Shop and now I just adore all things felt. Take a look and I think you’ll see what I mean! (Oh, and this can be re-used after the wedding as home decor!) The ampersand is cute, too.

Fishing Cake Topper for Wedding / Groom’s Cake

A while back, we featured this gone fishing cake topper and it was a huge hit. And we loved it just as much as you did. But then the cake toppers were no longer available and bride-to-be, Ashleigh, came to us looking for one, and we think she (and you) will love what we’ve found! This topper has it all, from the adorable bride’s dress to the fishing rod to the puppy! And just wait until you see how this groom holds his bride. So sweet. Check it out below, by Anna Crafts:

Modern Air Plant Wedding Decor

I love when wedding decor can be re-used as home decor. Loooove it. So when I (Emma here!) spotted these modern hanging air plant holders over at Handmade Sam Made, I couldn’t resist sharing their geometric awesomeness with you. But first, what is an air plant, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you!

What is an Air Plant?

These is an air plant? Here’s what it looks like:

by handmade sam made

An air plant — aka Tillandsia, if you want to get technical — is a sometimes rootless tropical plant with grasslike leaves, according to Google. Water and airborne nutrients are absorbed through its leaves.

Air Plant Wedding Decor

An air plant makes an exceptionally lovely flower alternative for wedding decor, especially for a modern wedding because it offers a minimalist look (similar to the succulent). If you want to decorate your wedding with air plants, we recommend using them as centerpieces, like so:

Or in a vase:

Another way to use air plants as decor is to hang them, whether from trees, rafters, or displayed on a back wall as a sconce or plant holder. These brass Himmeli designs are some of the prettiest I’ve seen yet…
