Brides: are you serving cupcakes at your wedding? Bored of the same old display? Want to cross “centerpieces” AND “cake” off your to-do list at the same time? You’ve come to the right place! We’ve heard of the cupcake in a jar – heck, we’ve even seen cupcakes on candlesticks – but a DIY cupcake bouquet is a fresh + fun idea. Instead of displaying cupcakes on the same old tray or tower, display them in a pot instead! These rose-frosting-topped cupcake bouquets are perfect for spring and summer weddings, bridal showers, and parties, and they double as your centerpiece, too. Plus, with Mother’s Day around the corner, you have no excuse but to whip up a batch of cupcakes this weekend and give ‘em to your mom. (And, it’s EASY! Even I could make ‘em, which is saying a lot. I’m no baker.) Besides, do you know anyone who would turn down a bouquet of cupcakes? Me either. So, grab your favorite cupcake mix, delicious frosting, some decorative cupcake wrappers, and a few other easy-to-find supplies and prepare to be inspired! Be sure to check out the links at the bottom of the page for full step-by-step tutorials. Enjoy!

Hello, loves, and Happy Monday! We hope you had a great weekend. I (Emma here!) love Mondays in particular since we get to kick off a brand new week of handmade wedding inspiration and launch a new giveaway (details on that coming up next!) This weekend, I had the honor of signing copies of my new book in lovely Northville, Michigan at Next Chapter Bookstore and Bistro. I wanted to extend my gratitude to those who came out to visit me and purchase a copy. It was wonderful to see your smiling faces!
To kick off the brand new week, we’re talking about reusable wedding decorations. Instead of buying decorations to be thrown away after your wedding, consider reusable wedding decorations meant as keepsakes in your home. To show you what we mean – and provide plenty of inspiration! – we’ve compiled ten favorite new finds. Read on to see which decorations made the list + find how we recommend using ‘em. Enjoy!
Reusable Wedding Decorations
1. Bride + Groom Custom Illustration Print
Who wouldn’t love a custom illustration made in their image? This find is one of my favorite illustrations to date. At the wedding, display on an easel for guests to view upon entering the reception; after the big day, frame and display in your love nest. Illustrated with love by Barbara Szepesi Szűcs Illustrations
