It’s looking like a girls’ weekend for me – face masques and nail polish and chocolate chip cookie dough. And now some of my favorite links from around the web this week…

Rustic centerpieces you can make yourself, via A $10,000 Wedding.

A new kind of inspiration board (and thank you for the love!) on a fantastic new blog.

Brightening dreary February days.

Loving these rockstar wedding portraits.

A variety of tying-the-knots.

Etsy finds: rings via A Cup of Jo, cake stands via Green Wedding Shoes, bow ties via Casando Ideias.

Mustaches are still cute to me, especially in miniature.

Great idea for Moo cards.

Too many bridesmaids to count? How about a color team instead.

If you’re lucky enough to have a lovely home with a pretty backyard, it could be the perfect place for an intimate wedding. For this wedding board, I was inspired by the retro feel of this bride’s dress and veil – maybe a little picket fence, glossy white mailbox, suburban nostalgia? For the ceremony, drape a basic patio umbrella with fabric and garlands. Afterward you’ve said your vows, invite guests to lounge on picnic blankets, eat watermelon and homemade cake, drink lemonade and play croquet. And have plenty of pink balloons for the kids!

Mood: home sweet home
Palette: picket fence white, lawn green, buttercream yellow, hints of pink

I think the colors and sensibility of this inspiration board would work especially well for a baby or bridal shower – or maybe a birthday party. Whichever one you choose, it certainly satisfies my sweet tooth.

Mood: Polaroids in a candy shop
Palette: soft filtered sunshine, candy pink

I’ve had this movie-inspired wedding board sitting around for awhile, and with the Oscars last night, I thought it would be fun to post it today. How about lollipops, hot air balloons, and a rainbow palette against the backdrop of a Kansas farm venue? Glittered, ruby red shoes are a must! What movies would you love to see translated into a wedding or party?

Mood: fantastic whimsy meets simple rustic
Palette: somewhere over the rainbow
