Instagrammers We Love: Charlotte Lovely

As a stylist based in London, Charlotte Love is always working on exciting shoots with awesome brands. But in her free time, she’s also built one of the most inspiring Instagram accounts we’ve seen.

What does her normal day look like? Today she’s answering all our pressing questions about her job and photography (we loved her answers!)…

How to Make a Dessert Table

Dessert tables at parties  have been all the rage the last several years (I blame Amy Atlas for blowing them up!) I love dessert tables but they can be tricky to get just right. If you aren’t careful they can end up looking a little sad. The first one I ever made I spent a lot of time and effort and the table came out looking flat and sparse. I eventually figured out the trick and today I’m going to give you my favorite tips for a successful dessert table.

DIY Message Candle Centerpieces

by Michaela Egger

In my work as event designer, almost every dinner table setting is competed with candles. Votives, candlesticks, little lanterns, etc – there’s always the warm glow of candle light in one form or another because every single client loves the intimate, festive atmosphere candles create. So, why not use candles as the only centerpieces? This DIY will let you make a big statement with your table settings – in no time at all. Let your centerpiece “greet” your guests, spell out your table numbers or whatever else comes to your mind! I’ve provided three different printable templates – black & white, shades from yellow to pink and colder hues in blues and greens. Feel free to mix and match!

Punched Leaf Napkin Rings

by Ashley Page Norton

I love the idea of tying a piece of rosemary into a mini wreath for a napkin ring – a little bit of greenery always looks nice on a table. Here’s a way to have a set of leafy napkin rings you never have to throw away – they’re made of paper! You can make these into mini wreaths which are super pretty, or customize them by making letters for everyone’s first name who’ll be sitting at your table. Either way it’s a little bit of spring to keep all year round!
