Last Thursday night, Heather and I had the pleasure of attending a Nib and Pixel Modern Calligraphy class at Post-Studio. We really enjoyed ourselves (view that class and others given by Nib and Pixel here), and the two hour course really flew by because we were having so much fun! I’m happy to report that I have a new hobby – although until I’m any good, I will be practicing on all of my work to-do and grocery lists.

Well, let me just say: this photo sure does make it look easy. My advice is to stick with the professionals. Hire a florist! Some of my favorites are Cheryl’s Flowers, The Blooming Idea, and The Blossom Shop. Today I attempted chair makeovers with fresh florals.
Here are the supplies I used:
Assorted flowers and greenery; florist tape; florist wire; flower cutters.
For this first look, which I actually like best, I stuck with a simple concept. I used eucalyptus (smells great) and added a single rose in that lovely dusty pink color. I’m happy with the result.
This second look really tried my patience. I wound the eucalyptus on a wire heart (found at Hobby Lobby), and while I think it looks adorable, it took way to long to be able to do for my own wedding. I cannot stress enough that this DIY is for inspirational purposes only. Hire a professional!
The third look is a simple hydrangea, orange rose, and greenery. I tied it together and tried to K.I.S.S. (That is, keep it simple, stupid).
Which is your favorite?

If you follow Heather’s Glen on Pinterest lately, you know what I’ve been pinning: fresh floral chair adornment ideas. Heather Benge Events created the look below on our adorable wrought-iron chairs, and we’ve been obsessed ever since. I’m going to try my hand at decorating two of our chairs with greenery and flowers this week, and will be sure to report back.

What do you think? Do you like naked chairs, covered with linens, or are you as charmed by the flowers as I am?

The Heather’s Glen team embarked on a wonderful adventure in Fredericksburg this week, enjoying a fantastic stay at a darling bed and breakfast. We enjoyed the pool, sunshine, some wine, shopping, and discussed goals for the rest of 2015. I highly recommend this adorable German-Texan town for a bachelorette party, honeymoon, or romantic getaway.
The perfect wraparound porch: gingerbread trim, tons of wicker furniture, fans, and chandeliers!

Lela was able to attend Wedding in Houston‘s event last week at La Colombe D’or – 70’s style! Here are some snaps from her night at the disco.

Heather and I are so excited to join Kasey Lynn Photography for Nib and Pixel‘s Modern Calligraphy for Newbies workshop! I’m trying to set realistic expectations for myself (in my mind, I’m the Michael Jordan of calligraphy writing, and I’ve never even done it), but I’m determined to practice what I’ll learn in a few weeks. Photos of the workshop will be posted here on the blog and on instagram, so be sure to follow along on the fun.
Are you considering hiring a calligrapher for your wedding stationery? Do you like modern or traditional style? I had my mother address ALL of those envelopes years ago, which remains a beautiful keepsake for me, but probably a reminder of the worst case of writer’s cramp she’s ever had.

I was a guest at my college roommate’s wedding this weekend in Austin, and I enjoyed myself so much at an old Texas dancehall with great food and music. The couple had a short engagement (2 months!), and as soon as I realized I’d be traveling on an already crazy weekend, I knew I’d need some help from my friends over at Blo The Woodlands. They are not a hair salon in terms of cut or color; the concept is you go there to be styled. They have a menu to select from and everything! Feeling like a total celebrity with my ‘do, I was out of the salon in about 30 minutes and hit the road to Austin. While I book my appointments there for work and social events that I’d like to look my best for, the Blo Bar is PERFECT for bachelorette parties (bring champagne and bites, get your hair done and walk out the door to be at The Woodlands Waterway Square for the best bars and restaurants) or wedding parties! The bride and bridesmaids can schedule to get their day-of hair and makeup done there, too. Visit their website here or call the Blo Bar at 281-465-8515.
