My best girl (who also happens to be my cousin) and I have started a new lifestyle blog (www.houseon8th.com) and to celebrate the launch of the site we’re giving away a pair of sandals from the fabulous Sseko Designs! They are a great company helping women continue their education in Uganda while also making gorgeous sandals, clutches and totes. And for all you brides out there, they have a gorgeous wedding line! Perfect for both you and your bridesmaids. And right now they are running a promotion when you buy four pairs of wedding sandals, you get your bridal pair free! Use code ssekobride until June 30th.
And also hop on over to House on 8th to check out the site and enter the giveaway before it ends on Monday!
How cute are these chalkboard style pennant banners? The adorable team at Elli.com is offering them up as a free download on their blog. Just print, punch holes where they are marked for you on the template, and string them on some ribbon or twine! Once they offered up the download they realized that from the words “Just Married” you can also spell out “Mr. & Mrs” so they included an ampersand as well – love it.
I have one thing to say about the wedding of this adorable couple – mini donuts! I can’t think of a better way to end a reception than passing out bite size pastries to all of your guests (really, who doesn’t love a donut?) Lisa and Seth were married in Minneapolis on a gorgeous Fall day, in a event that is full of understated simplicity. Lisa’s dress is so perfectly classic and I love the single blooms in small glass vessels set up throughout the reception – a perfect way to achieve a romantic feeling without spending a chunk of your budget on blooms.
