V4 Giveaway :: Southern Exits

by in Contests, Main on

I hope y’all enjoyed this morning’s extended look at our Boone Hall getaway shoot! If you loved the pretty details we shared, I’m betting you’ll LOVE today’s giveaway! We have several pieces from the shoot to hand out to lucky readers, so let’s get started!

First up is the gorgeous Peyton clutch from Belles & Crystals. This beauty retails for $160, and is made of sleek hand-swirled silk dupioni blooms. My favorite part about this clutch is the beautiful blue interior.

Our next clutch up for grabs is the Big Bloom Bridal Clutch from Oatmeal Lace Design. This beauty retails for $60 and is made of ivory silk, and it also has a (patterned!) blue and white interior!

Our third clutch of the day is a beautiful pale pink pleated clutch from Davie & Chiyo, also made of silk. This pretty has a white silk interior.

The next lovely is the Southern Vintage Feather accessory from Preston & Olivia! I love this piece, because while I enjoy a good fascinator as much as the next gal, sometimes they can get a little… unwieldy. This one is perfectly sized and perfectly understated.

Finally, we have a set of 20 coral satin ribbon wands from Romancing Juliet up for grabs. These would be perfect for your very own Southern exit! :)

Win: We’ll choose five winners — one for each of our four fabulous Southern Exits prizes.

It must be that mason jars simply inspire sweet thoughts, because we have another cake-based finalist for you today! Farren of PrettyPeachtree and Ashley from Scobey Photography put together this mason jar “cake” after they discovered their mutual love of frosting at a wedding. A friendship with a sweet beginning, indeed!

From the ladies:

“I don’t think I have ever met someone who loves wedding cake as much as I do until I met Ashley Scobey from Scobey Photography. We discovered this similarity when Ashley and I sat next to each other at a rehearsal dinner and both returned to our table with extra helpings of the groom’s cake with added fondant on the side. When I saw the challenge for mason jars on SW, I instantly knew wedding cake had to be the way to go. It is the best part of the wedding after all…that is, after marrying the love of your life.

What makes these mason jars great is that they are easy to make, and guests don’t have to wait on the cake to get sliced before they get to enjoy the sweet sensation that is wedding cake! By adding a cake tier on top of the mason jars, you get a cake-like appearance and to enjoy the tradition of cutting the cake with your new husband.

DIY Instructions:

1. Search local craft stores such as Joann Fabrics for ribbon to top your mason jars to match your wedding color scheme. I wanted a rustic look for this challenge in honor of fall, so I chose a neutral braided like ribbon. Cut enough of the ribbon to fully fit the circumference of the top of the mason jar and where the ribbon overlaps a bit in the back as to create a smooth edge. Adhere with hot glue or use a craft adhesive dot to secure. I wanted to be able to reuse the jars for other purposes, so I used an adhesive dot to secure the ribbon to the jars as it will peel off when wanted.
2. Bake your favorite kind of cake in a sheet cake pan. Once cooled, cut the cake into small cubes. Place cubes of cake in the bottom of each mason jar until they reach about halfway up the jar.
3. Dollop a generous portion of icing into each mason jar on top of the cubes of cake in the bottom. Spread gently against the sides of the jar with a spatula as to create a layered look from the outside of the jar.
4. Top each mason jar off with more cubes of cake until it reaches the top of the jar.
5. You can stack the mason jars as pictured, or just display them individually on a table. Either way, your guests won’t be able to wait to pick one up and enjoy that yummy cake!”

Thank you so much, Farren + Ashley! Readers, if you love this idea, comment and let us know! And remember, you’re welcome to vote for more than one concept!

    What a great “Southern Idea”! Unique and classic! It makes me want to get a “BIG” spoon and dive in. Very creative and such a lovely touch for that true Southern wedding.

I know poms have been around the block a time or two, but I was just emailing with a reader the other day who loved the look but didn’t know how to replicate it. Handmade Find to the rescue!

If you’d like to make your own poms, check out Martha’s tutorial — the original and the best.

Photos from Martha Stewart Weddings

If you are more of a Buy-It-Yourself rather than a Do-It-Yourself bride (no shame!), I’ve got a few resources for you, too. I’ve personally ordered from PomLove before, and was very pleased with their prices and service. I’ve also heard good things about Orangekisses, another Etsy shop.

Once you’ve got your poms in hand, they’ll only need a little fluffing love before looking as gorgeous as the ones at this Atlanta ceremony:

Photos by Stephanie Richardson

I also think this use for poms is too cute! How perfect would this be for a bridal shower?

See the how-to for this project on the Fiskars website!

Tell me: did you use poms in your wedding?
