wedding crafts: bunting cupcake topper

You’ve seen my flag cupcake topper, and you’ve seen the fringe topper I made. It’s time for the piece de resistance, the most challenging cupcake topper I made from my big day, the bunting topper. Isn’t it adorable? The work on this one is highly labour intensive and super delicate (read: frustrating). My best advice is don’t aim to make too many. Even if you have a big batch of cupcakes, you can top off a fraction of them – a sea of toppers can be overwhelming anyway.

wedding crafts: fringe cupcake topper

If you liked the blue and white polka-dotted flag cupcake topper I made for my wedding, you’ll love this gold fringe one. As promised, this one is a bit more challenging than the first, but it’s still quite easy to make. Warning: It does get messy!

wedding crafts: flag cupcake topper

Welcome to the Week of Cupcake Toppers. It’s a working title, but I think you get my drift. There is no such thing as a cupcake that’s too cute. So, I made three different types of toppers to add that little extra touch to the already adorable – not to mention delicious – cupcakes that Sweet Melissa baked for my wedding. As it turned out, some of these were easier to make than others, so throughout this week I’ll post the DIYs in order of difficulty, starting with the easiest. The first is a flag topper, made with polka-dotted washi tape and a toothpick.

fab find: colourful kitchen oven mitts

I’ve been surrounded by fun kitchen accessories recently as our October issue (that features a ton of great kitchens!) is about to hit stands. Since it’s no secret that I’m obsessed with hot pink, I naturally gravitated to these Checkered Raspberry Oven Mitts. Such a simple way to bring a pop of colour into an otherwise neutral kitchen. Read on for more details.

wedding crafts: glitter-dipped mason jars

It’s official. I’m a Mrs. This past Friday, I got hitched at Belcroft Estates, a tree farm just north of Toronto. Think: Pinterest barn wedding. I wasn’t the type of bride to gush about my big day, but now that it’s all done, I’m excited to share a few of my DIY decor projects. (I use “my” quite liberally since I had a lot of help from my amazing bridesmaids.) Hopefully you get inspired to make a couple of things for your next event, be it a once-in-a-lifetime day or a casual gathering. First up: glitter-dipped mason jars.

woodland adventure

Hello all! I am heading up north to camp for a few days, and thought why not share with you a couple of my favourite woodland and nautical rooms on Style at Home, plus a sophisticated yet playful board I put together for a boy’s room.

This “woods” wallpaper from Cole & Son is definitely one of my all time favourites.  While the nature inspired pattern makes it the perfect choice at the cottage, the contemporary illustration and the colorways make it super chic in a modern contemporary space.  I love the soft, romantic look in this room, especially how the pale lavender accents juxtaposed with the masculine woodland backdrop.

editor’s pick: cat beds

Meet Tootsie. She is my Scottish fold kitten, who is of the Lol Cats persuasion that “if it fits i sits,” as evidenced by her perch in my stock pot. (Cat soup, anyone?) I’m forever finding her in strange places, such as shoes, drawers, the fridge, etc. Adorable as she may look in these – ahem – resourceful spots, I think the time has come to get Tootsie her very own place, so I’ve been scouring the net for cat beds. Check out a few of my favourite finds so far.
