If you’re a bit of an architecture aficionado and really into gorgeous inspiration (aren’t we all?!), then this engagement shoot captured by Savour Productions is going to knock your socks right off. Set in the beautiful streets of Macao with its beautiful Portuguese inspired architecture as the backdrop, the result is clean lined, chic and breathtaking through and through. It’s so pretty we’re pretty sure you’ll be smitten like us too!
King of Savour Production shares, “This picture-perfect couple chose to shoot in Macao-the homeland of Eddie. Actually, they had done an engagement shoot in Hong Kong before but they wanted to have one in fine art approach in their meaningful place. Chapel of Our Lady of Penha founded in 1622 is magnificent and tranquil. The mermaid Enzoni dress and the flowy veil came gracefully. They changed into simple and comfortable outfit and strolled along the street to the green historical houses which blended with Portuguese architectural matrix.”
If any of you lovely peachies are looking to create a sophisticated celebration with a hint of sparkle that also perfectly combines femininity with a bit of masculinity, then this gorgeously elegant navy and gold scandinavian inspiration should should get those wedding planning juices flowing. And you know how we just love stunning calligraphy and all things geometric so when we see these thrown into this elegant mix, we’re so all over it! Lilelements had a vision for an editorial filled with marbles, copper, Scandinavian decor and a soft, romantic vibe. They teamed up with Floral Bomb to execute their ideas in this gorgeous private home and all the rich golds, copper and dashes of navy and sparkle against a creamy background is perfect for inspiring couples dreaming of a romantic wedding with an opulent feel.
Marie from lilelements shares, “Marble has been a trend lately and lots of people have styled their homes and events with simple marbles with copper or Scandinavian décor. I love how simple marble can be used for any event but I wanted to create a shoot with a little more than just the Scandinavian décor. As spring and summer is upon us, there’s so many florals to choose from and for the love of marbles and florals, what best to bring them together?!? This shoot was placed at a private home to show that you don’t need a big extravagant venue to make your wedding pop. The rooftop of the house had a great view to the waters and we place a gazebo with amazing florals for the ceremony. An intimate tablscape was set within the amazing marble titled floors and marble stairs, simple and elegant was what we were going for and deck the place with florals.”
With Christmas just around the corner, I’ve really been wondering lately, where the year has gone?! Is it just me? Either way, it has me excited about our first Christmas with the little peach in Australia. Christmas has always been my favourite holiday so I’m totally looking forward to continuing our Christmas traditions in the sunny land downunder. With that in mind, let’s take a step into our archives today with this festive red, mint and peach inspiration board, which is making me all warm and tingly inside. You?
It just wouldn’t be the holiday season without a bit of DIY so we asked the lovely Steph of Make and Tell to bring a little bit of Christmas cheer to Simply Peachy – and as always, with this sweet and simple pine needle garland, Steph does not disappoint! It’s the perfect little DIY that brings the outside in and I love that it can also be done in a way that’s perfect for any occasion and not just the holiday season. Happy crafting peachies!
This year is my first year having a living Christmas tree in the house and I love it. True, it’s not much taller than waist height and I may just kill it before Christmas is over (I have a terrible track record with plants), but looks lovely and I enjoy breathing in that pine needle scent every time I walk into the house.
So when Sandra asked me to come up with a Christmas project for Simply Peachy, the first thing that came to mind was a DIY using pine needles from my tree! The intention was to make a pretty garland that I could use to decorate my house this festive season, but really this one could be used all year round. Just substitute the pine with something a little less Christmassy (like rosemary) and you’ll have a green geometric garland for your next party or even your wedding!
Sprigs of pine or a similar plant like rosemary
Gold spray paint
Bend your wire to form triangles. Don’t worry too much about being precise – it doesn’t matter if the sides are a little wonky as they’ll eventually be covered with sprigs of pine.
Twist the ends of the wire to close off the triangle, using a bit of wire at the end to form a loop. You’ll be using this loop a little later to attach your triangles onto your garland.
Spray the top of your pine sprigs with gold spray paint and leave to dry.
When the pine sprigs are dry, attach each one to the sides of your wire triangles, using thread to fasten them into place.
Once you’ve made all your triangles, cut a longer piece of thread and feed it through the wire loops you made earlier to form a garland.
And that’s it – your garland is ready to hang!
It’s hard to see in these photos, but I love how pretty the metallic gold paint looks against the deep green of the pine needles. And you can change this project up to suit pretty much any Christmas (or party!) colour scheme – why not try spray painting your pine in white or neon pink for a completely different look?
