This gorgeous floral centerpiece will surely be the star of any wedding tablescape! I teamed up with Beacon Lane to design a DIY inspired by their Modern Calligraphy invites, Looking amazing at backyard and outdoor weddings to bridal showers and more, we love the customization these centerpieces offer. I’ll walk through the steps to create a greenery wreath, plus various styling options – choose whichever option suits you best! And it’s not JUST for brides – these look amazing at other events, showers and more!

We love mixing textures in florals – the eucalyptus, assorted greenery and creamy roses provide a sophisticated blend of color and shape. Choose blooms that compliment each other, or go with an all-greenery scheme for a neutral palette.

Bewitched Halloween Lookbook by Quiet Lion Creations

It’s every witch’s favorite season – and any pumpkin spice lover’s dream to find this hidden garden nestled between cornfields and evergreens. October is over, but why not carry some Halloween vibes throughout the rest of Fall?

An autumnal palette of caramel cream, cinnamon brown and with dusty olive pairs with bright pumpkin orange and cauldron black – contrasting cosmic silver sparkles provide the same glitter factor as a shooting star! This sequined Zara dress brings celestial vibes to the max, equipped with sheer mesh to provide an even more ethereal feeling. The slight chill in the air required the addition of my trusty vegan leather jacket.

The sparkle continues with layered accessories – stack bracelets and rings like there’s no tomorrow, but keep the colors coordinating for a cohesive look. For a festive statement earring look, large baubles are tres chic, and also tres easy to make. Grab 6 large beads (wood, thread-wrapped, acrylic or resin, something lightweight) to feature…..mine were sequin-wrapped wooden beads. Create bead links out of 4 of them (use eyepins), and bead drops with the remaining 2 (use headpins). Connect two bead links together and end with a bead drop. Attach the top loop of the bead link to an earring fishhook, and repeat for the other earring. Legit, you can make these in less than 10 minutes! The key, because of the large size, is by using lightweight beads – don’t choose any heavy glass crystals here! The bigger and crazier/sparklier the bauble, the better!

Enjoy the festive Fall vibes below! In Pumpkin Spice we Trust.

The golden hour glow of Autumn sun casts the best honey-like lighting for these “Fall in Florida” looks! Well, I guess we tried to pile as much of the season we could into the shoot, with dark bohemian makeup and plenty of seasonal colors in the jewels. Chunky gemstones, mystic crystals and plenty of sparkle speak to a wanderlust-type aesthetic, mixing both media and texture…. Hints of gypsy shine through in the form of citrine and amethyst stones, flowing feathers and a dreamcatcher pendant. You can catch the tutorial on the dreamcatcher necklaces on my other post here!

I don’t think you can beat the background mural art of Downtown St. Pete, Florida – always a solid shoot locale. One of my go-to spots! I added some sunny and starry doodle edits to mimic the beautiful wall murals…. it seems a new mural pops up every week or so on Central Avenue!

As for Fall favorites, I have been loving tonal color combinations recently, especially with gemstones. Mix stones with similar colors but different textures or finishes to create an ultra-chic story! My personal go-to has been brown jasper, tiger’s eye, red aventurine and garnet…

Taking that same wanderer mood far out to the cosmos, starburst sparkles blend perfectly with interstellar spikes and sunset shadows, coming together to create a totally glam galaxy –even  if only existent in a daydream….

Special thanks again to my model Laurel Mona and Ooh Lala Makeup Artistry for the gorgeous makeup/styling!
