It’s time to take a few tips from your grandmother because the art (and appreciation!) of calligraphy is back and here to stay! The pages of wedding invitations, signs, wrapping paper, chalkboards and cakes are overflowing with delicate handwritten notes. Whether you’re a newcomer to typography or a regular attendee, it’s time incorporate stunning script into your home’s decor.
Take a peek at Oh So Beautiful Paper‘s elegant DIY Balloon Engagement Cocktail Party Invitation. The gold metallic lettering shines brightest over a muted hue.
Go big or go home! Style Me Pretty‘s DIY “Cheers” Sign takes cursive (and sparkle!) to a whole new level.
Who says that script needs to be two-dimensional? Put on your 3D glasses because Oh Happy Day‘s Calligraphy Cake Topper opens up a dimension of an entirely different magnitude.
Put your favorite song lyrics to paper with Paper & Stitch‘s Large Scale Hand Lettered Artwork Tutorial. It’s simple, it’s easy, and did I mention that it can be done in less than an hour?
Whether it be custom wrapping paper for the holidays or a personalized bouquet that carries a message on its sleeve, Julep‘s DIY Personalized Flower Wrap adds an extra dose of thoughtfulness to any gesture.
It doesn’t matter what your handwriting looks like, beautiful script comes in all shapes and sizes. You just have to give it a shot!
TREND: Bar Carts
Whether it’s a vintage find or a fabulous new piece, bar carts are popping up everywhere. Their versatility and style make them a perfect addition to any dining room or kitchen space.
A few years ago I found an old metal school cart at a local thrift shop for $10. It has since become one of my favorite things to style in my home. It has classic ingredients like glasses, a cocktail shaker, and a basket or two. Then for special parties or occasions, I get to have fun incorporating different cocktail napkins, straws and colorful glassware. Not only does my bar cart serve as a functional piece in my room, it becomes a beautiful and eclectic statement piece of my own personal style.
Today, I put together a fun collection of some of my personal favorite accessories to create a really special bar cart. From a pig corkscrew to birch paper straws, this bar cart is serving up function and style.
