Ribbons are the first thing that comes to mind when you think about crafts, gift wrap, and things you used to tie in your hair as a little girl... but what about weddings? Recently, different ways to use ribbons have been popping up all over the blogs and magazines. They are an inexpensive, mostly simple way to express your personality in your decor, and the opportunities to customize are endless! So as you read on, re-think those old spools of craft ribbons in your gift wrap closet and how they can inspire you to create something new. 


1. Inspired by an Anthropologie floor set, a gorgeous cascade of paper ribbons creates the perfect backdrop for a rustic or empty-looking venue. Oh, yeah, and that's a DIY made from receipt tape by the way.

I've never been a fan of huge flower arrangements at the altar for weddings....they look a little "old school" to me...so today, I thought I would share some  "non traditional" ceremony decor with you....from pom poms....to ribbons...to flowers.....all so pretty and so "non traditional"....and check out the different venues that the couples are choosing to hold their ceremonies at today...all so different and so beautiful....see you at the ceremony!!....Enjoy!!

Coral Peonies

Hi Guys.....it's "Bouquet Friday" at the cafe and today I'm sharing one of my favorite color palettes with you...corals...yellows....and an unexpected touch of blue. I find this color palette to be romantic, yet still fun and the fluffy coral peonies in the mercury containers bring such an elegance to the table.
 
The blue accents are brought in with the ribbon table runner and to reference the yellow ranunculus, we choose the golden yellow napkins.  Using the mercury containers as our vessels for the florals and mercury accents with the votives and candleholders brought the look all together...a lovely table for your wedding reception...rehersal dinner...or simply entertaining at your home with friends and family. Enjoy!!

I'm so excited to share with you that there are going to be lots of new projects coming up at the cafe.......YAY!!!  The past couple of months, I've been busy working with so many awesome artists in the industry and  I'm beyond excited to introduce you to one of those gifted artist today, say hello to Dana FitzGerald.

Dana is an AMAZING stylist and we have been collaborating on some projects that I know you are going to love.....now, you probably aren't aware of this, but you've already seen Dana's work and you may not have realized it...you see, Dana was a stylist at Martha Stewart Weddings, Modern Bride and Mademoiselle for years.....her work has graced the pages of these prestigious publications and she is AMAZING!!......working with Dana has been a joy and truly a dream come true....I look forward to seeing her stop by the cafe on a regular and sharing a part of her creative world with us....today is Dana's debut at the cafe and she's sharing one of my favorite wedding details....RIBBONS!!....so without further ado, I give you Miss Dana....and capturing all the prettiness is our girl Amelia of Amelia Johnson Photography..... Enjoy!!  


(blushing) Thank you Janie! I am truly excited and honored to have the opportunity to collborate with such a talented floral desginer and blogger!

When it comes to wedding details I agree with Janie -  ribbons are a favorite. They are a special detail that should just not be over looked! Ribbons should be used to elevate the basics — trim flower girls' dresses, cardigans, shoes, bouquets, paperie, escort card tables, favors, napkins and more!  

Ribbons come in what seems like an infinite number of fabrics, widths, patterns and colors. And what is great is that they are widely available to all!

I am going to share some of my favorite sources with you now...hope you enjoy!
