Darcy's Diary: New Holiday Color Palettes, Comfy Custom PJs, and Personalized Flash Tattoos
Each week, Darcy Miller, the editorial director of Martha Stewart Weddings, will spotlight a few of her favorite things in the wedding world right now.
Holiday Wedding Inspiration
To help put you in the holiday spirit, I'm spotlighting a few photos from the Tiffany & Co. holiday lunch! If you're having a winter wedding, take a cue from these ideas: I love the blue-and-white color palette seen in the above wreath-it feels very festive without being the expected red and green.
In this arrangement (which was used a centerpiece), classic wedding flowers (peonies and ranunculus) are paired with festive touches like lush greenery and metallic ornaments-love!
Here's a shot of the entire tablescape. I especially love the chairs-which you can rent! A look like this would also be so perfect for an engagement party or winter bridal shower.
For the last course, they served alternating desserts, which helps encourage sharing amongst guest. Pictured here is a delicious chocolate cake (they served an apple tart, too).
Holiday (and Wedding!) Gift Idea
Andy Spade is one of the most creative people I know, and last week I visited his Sleepy Jones shop on Howard street in NYC. Sleepy Jones is an amazing collection of loungewear that is inspired by the lifestyles of artists like David Hockney, Pablo Picasso, and Jean Seberg. Not only are the PJs super comfy, but they can also be personalized, making them a great holiday gift for anyone in your wedding party.
Here are just a few of the different personalization options they offer-fom cute designs like sheep, hearts, and sunglasses to classic monograms!
A Personalized Detail
You know those fun metallic temporary tattoos everyone wears as jewelry? Well now, you can customize them! Flash Tattoos recently launched a new online custom design studio, which allows you to create your own-make them for your bridesmaids or go for a design that spotlights your wedding date. They make such a creative save-the-date!
