Moodboard Monday – Valentines Day

Posted by Emma ♥ - February 13th, 2012

I’m going to do something a little different this week peeps and instead of a wedding inspiration mood board, I have put together a little last minute gift guide for the big day tomorrow – a kind of stocking filler list!

It’s hard not to get caught up in all the romance of Valentines Day and I tend not to take it too seriously. I am of the opinion that we shouldn’t have to feel pressured into being all romantic and paying over the odds for a meal out in town just because it’s Valentines Day – these are things that we should be doing all through the year, BUT I am a complete sucker for all the tatt and love having an excuse to fill my pencil case with even more heart covered pens!

So, here’s my lil list of the top 10 fun buys for under a tenner from Paperchase….


1. Heart Notepad

2. Cherry Bath Roses

3. Love Mug

4. Heart Pen

5. Heart Beaker

6. Wild Cherry Lip Balm

7. Patchwork Heart Felt Journal

8. Wobble Heart Stickers

9. Love Candles

10. Knitted Heart Hot Water Bottle

Hope you have a fab day!

Much love,

Emma xXx

Monday’s Moodboard

Posted by Emma ♥ - November 28th, 2011

If you had asked me a few years ago about my thoughts on getting married  in Las Vegas, I would have been under the same misconception that a lot of people have about tying the knot here BUT now – well I wish I had thought of it when I was planning my wedding!

The hotels are super luxiourious, the options for your reception are just endless, the weather is brilliant (most of the year!), the photo oppotunites are amazing and the fun to be had – well that’s just priceless!

You can sample some of the world’s greatest cities in just over 4 miles of the Las Vegas strip by enjoying a trip to the Venitian for a Gondala ride, The gorgeous dancing fountains at the Bellagio, the famous skyline of the Big Apple at New York New York and even catch a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower from Paris

I have fallen for the romance of Vegas so much that it has now become a contender for where I renew my vows on my 10th Wedding Anniversary!!

Here’s a few of my favourite Las Vegas wedding ideas……

Polka Dot Bridesmaid Dress

Las Vegas Themed Wedding Favours

Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Heart Shoes

Las Vegas Themed Wedding Cupcakes

Prom Style Wedding Dress

Las Vegas Themed Wedding Stationery

Las Vegas Themed Wedding Favours

If you are stuck for somewhere to get married and haven’t considered Vegas yet – get looking into it! You’d be mad not to!

Muchos love.

Monday’s Moodboard – Chocolate Brown

Posted by Emma ♥ - October 24th, 2011

I don’t think brown is a colour we automatically associate with a wedding but mixed with some soft tones of green, pink or orange and this theme really does look beautiful!

It’s very understated and elegant leaving you to have lots of fun incorporating the ‘chocolate’ element into your day – which I am sure will please the guests! I think this colour would be best suited to autumn/winter months to appreciate the full effect and ‘warmness’ of this theme.

Here’s a few ideas for you….

1. Brown/Green Wedding Theme

2. Chocolate Wedding Cup Cakes

3. Brown Bridesmaid Dress

4. Brown Themed Escort Cards

5. Chocolate Wedding Cake

6. Brown Wedding Favors

7. Brown/Pink Wedding Theme

Have you had a brown themed wedding? We would love to hear all about it in the comments box below!

Muchos love,


Monday’s Moodboard – Military

Posted by Emma ♥ - October 17th, 2011

Good morning peeps! Hope you all had a lovely weekend and feel nice and refreshed for the new week ahead!

I must say, I have been looking forward to this weeks moodboard theme for a little while. Although I didn’t have a Military themed wedding, I did have certain aspects in there – we had a Guard of Honour and a Piper from the Regiments band. I think I do regret not having more though now. My husband, the old romantic that he is, has spoken a few times about renewing our vows on our 10th anniversary and I think that if we did do this then I would really like him to wear his Uniform this time and I think he would too!

Soooo, anyway, back to today’s post – I’ve got so many ideas to share with you all regarding this theme but there’s only so much you can put in a moodboard so from January I will be doing a weekly post on Military Weddings which will enable me to elaborate but here’s a taster in the meantime for you….

Military Wedding Theme 1

Military Wedding Bottle Labels

Military Wedding Stationery

Military Wedding Cake Topper

Military Wedding Flower Girl Basket

Military Wedding Theme 2

Military Wedding Favour

Hope you all have a lovely Monday and see you back here tomorrow!

Monday’s Moodboard – Autumn

Posted by Emma ♥ - October 3rd, 2011

Back at the beginning of September I thought I would be very clever and work out my weekly themes for the moodboards up until Christmas so I could give myself plenty of time to prepare each week. Judging by the weather we have had this year I thought I would have been feeling very autumnal by this point, wrapped up indoors and would probably have the heating on too, but instead I am sitting in the garden with suncream on (have made a point of putting a bit more on than I had yesterday!) so it has been quite a hard theme to really get into this week! Still, looking for inspiration through some of my favourite colours (brown and orange!) didn’t prove too hard a task  – I ♥ Monday’s!! I’m loving these Apple Favors……

1 – Autumn Wedding Favours

2 – Autumn Table

3 – Autumn Wedding Cupcakes

4 – Autumn Wedding Stationery

5 – Autumn Bridesmaid Dresses

6 – Autumn Wedding Flowers

Hope you have a lovely day and see you bright and early tomorrow morning!!

Muchos Love,

Monday’s Moodboard – White/Cream

Posted by Emma ♥ - September 26th, 2011

The colour White has been a huge feature in most peoples weddings for a LONG time but this was mainly due  to the wedding dress. Over the years, White/Cream has become a much more popular theme and gone are the days when the bride didn’t want anyone else to wear white (so as not to be upstaged), and a new trend, which was highlighted by the big Royal Wedding this year, is for the Bridesmaids to wear white too – although becareful they don’t carry it off as well as Pippa Middleton did as then the fear of being upstaged could be justified!

Don’t you just love this dessert table….

1. White Wedding Cupcakes

2. White Bridesmaid Dresses

3. White Wedding Favours

4. White Wedding Bouquet

5. White Wedding Dessert Table

6. White Wedding Table

Don’t forget to check back at 17.00pm (UK time) for today’s second post – this is becoming a regular occurrence!!

Elizabeth Avey Dress

Vintage Decoration

Monday’s Moodboard – Yellow & Lemon

Posted by Emma ♥ - September 12th, 2011

I can’t believe it’s Monday again already – Where is the time going?!?

To brighten up what is a very gloomy & extremeley windy Monday in the UK, this weeks Monday’s Moodboard is….

Yellow is such a happy colour isn’t it! It makes me smile and I feel all warm inside – a perfect colour to have at a wedding!

It would compliment a late spring/early summer wedding perfectly and even by just injecting a little of this colour your theme would be brightened up instantly.

As with the Apple Green colour last week, yellow/lemon again allows you to add some very cool DIY projects into your big day – who would have thought a peice of fruit could make such an effective place card….

Images Clockwise from top left….

Lemon Name Cards

Lemon Drop Favours

Yellow Heart Decorations

Wedding Invitations

Dessy Lela Rose Bridesmaid Dress

Yellow Wedding Bouquet

Lemon Decoration Table Centres

Yellow/Lemon Wedding Cake

Have you chosen an Yellow/Lemon theme for your wedding? If you have then please feel free to share any ideas in the comments box below.

Muchos Love
