Sweet Tables of Love

Sweet tables that appear to have a DIY flavor to them seem to be trending a lot on social media. Everywhere I look there are sweet tables of all kinds that share a common thread. It appears that brides are looking for more bespoke styling over the pristine professional quality of a 5-Diamond hotel. Don't misunderstand; that's not a back-handed compliment either. If anything I am relieved, in a sense, that brides are paying homage to yesteryear through the hand-made quality of presenting their wedding dreams. I find these Valentine's Day themed sweet tables excellent examples of keeping the essence of love front and center through the use of color, styling and composition: * Ornate monochrome frames * Vintage cake pedestals * Use of handicrafts * Mix of pinks, whites, and red * Milkglass vessels * Hand-dyed muslin Although not pictured, I'd love to see this level of romance on a table include some glitz and glam. Nothing over the top. But some flecks of matte gold would give an extra textural element that reflects light and sparkle.

How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
