About Hostess with the Mostess

Since spring has finally sprung, I thought it would be fun to celebrate the imminent arrival of warmer weather with some spring-and-summer-appropriate decorating inspiration from one of my favorite entertaining books: The Perfect Wedding Details by Maria McBride. Whether you are planning an outdoor wedding or just looking for cute ideas for your bridal shower, this book is a great resource to draw creative inspiration!

This adorable strawberry & wheatgrass topiary above would be lovely for a bridal shower, and looks delicious enough to eat!

For those of you looking to spruce up the chairs at your ceremony or reception, brightly colored, duo-tone chair bows are the perfect accents. Enlist some of your sewing-savvy bridesmaids and put them to work!

Another fantastic crafty tip from The Perfect Wedding Details: fun ideas for dressing up simple glass cylinders. What a great way to make your dollar stretch, and add some pizzazz to your tablescape.

And finally, if you consider yourself eco-chic and want to put a unique spin on your bridal bouquet, go green with a funky, chic arrangement of button mums & tropical leaves.

Check out The Perfect Wedding Details for a step-by-step breakdown of all of these ideas and many, many more!
