Celebrating the May Wedding Flower of the Month : Lily of the Valley

Happy Friday! I was thrilled to find out my Vintage Styled Lily of the Valley Wedding Invitation was featured in a Lily of the Valley treasury on etsy this month, created by Elizabeth of Tint Press. Did you know that the flower of the month for May is the Lily of the Valley? You can find the personalized print-at-home Lily of the Valley Wedding Invitation template in my etsy shop. You can also see the Vintage Inspired Lily of the Valley Photo Shoot here that features my {hand-glittered} invitation and gorgeous florals from EightTreeStreet.

Below are four of my handmade favorites from the Lily of the Valley Treasury from Elizabeth . . .

Photo Shoot : April bridal showers bring May flowers

Can't believe the week of April Wedding Vendor Challenges has come to an end. But, not before I share with you one last lovely photo shoot with a great DIY wedding favor {there's even one made just for me, love that}. I have enjoyed this week so much and being able to share with you all of the amazing bridal shower photo shoots with inspiring tablescapes and dessert displays. Today's talented team created a fun bridal shower based on "April Showers Bring May Flowers" with this month's color palette of bubble gum pink, mint green and robin's egg blue. The photo shoot took place in California with Jacin of Lovely Little Details and Gladys of Gladys Jem Photography. Jacin is so clever - wait until you see all of the fun little goodies she incorporated into this tablescape.

Wellies with baby's breath and hydrangeas as a "vase" to represent the rainy weather and a peat moss pot with malted milk balls and green pixy stix to represent grass

Pink carnations for a simple floral design using bud vases and an antique watering can

Mini pink takeout boxes for guests to take their sweets home

Jacin made a mobile with taffeta that hung over the table to represent the "rain"

Loving these "potted" cupcakes with custom embossed flowers created by Jacin herself

DIY GOODIE: Jacin created a simple "favor/placecard" for bridal showers which includes a seed packet for each of your guests to take home.
