éclairs for breakfast: diy cupcake topping bar

This idea is so fabulous for any occasion... a DIY cupcake topping bar!

Enjoy Cupcakes created a great 'Build It' bar with ready-to-decorate cupcakes waiting for some delicious individual toppings such as different flavoured sauces, sprinkles and fruits.

It allows your guests to personalise their own cupcakes!

This great DIY idea can be used for any occasion such as a wedding dessert table, a bridal shower, a baby shower or children's party.

detail love: a whimsical workshop

How stunning is this summertime wedding inspiration workshop by photographer Jessica Claire and Carter and Cook Event Company

Heather and Ashlyn styled a really lovely summer inspired wedding with so many gorgeous summer touches... summer fruits, feminine and pretty florals, vintage furniture and props, rustic wedding table settings and whimsical hanging chandelier.

The girls of Carter and Cook say they were 'inspired by camping, all things summer, gingham, popsicles, fireflies, fun colours, rope and various textures'.

The outdoor table setting is very romantic. The pretty peach, tangerine and navy colour palette work beautifully with vintage floral prints and natural textures. The paper goods are simple and sweet and compliment the yummy and edible rockmelon place settings!

What a stunning way to display the three wedding cakes?... a gorgeous pink tulle curtain backdrop, a rustic table and beautiful ceramic cakeplates. The soft pink butter icing and toasted marshmallow icing just looks delicious.

I just adore the bride's sweet little floral cardigan. A perfect accessory to a summertime and camping themed wedding!

sunday love: scones, jams and pretty florals

This styled shoot by Eva Lindh is so pretty and adorable. I just love the baked treats (scones, jams and cupcakes), the pretty florals (fabrics, wallpaper, tablecloths and ceramics) and the cute cardigans and aprons.

Now I want to go and make my own jam!

wedding love: beautiful rustic wedding

This beautiful rustic Austin wedding captured by the very talented Simply Bloom is so soft and sweet. I love its DIY details, vintage and rustic furnishings, succulent flowers and gorgeous location.

I adore the bride's lovely gown and fabulous necklace and shoes. Also, how sweet are the cute photos of the couple with their cat and dog?

The handmade stationary and the personalised cross-words are so rustic, natural and unique. The couple asked their guests to send copies of their own wedding photos prior to the wedding day and they were hung alongside the aisle with little wooden pegs.

Simply Bloom's photographs are so whimsical and romantic, be sure to check out more here and here
