As Seen on King 5: Wedding DIY Tips!

June 13, 2013

Our Herban Design Studio Creative Director, Nicole Haynes, was invited to join King 5’s Christie Johnson for a special DIY segment. Here are a few favorite takeaways!

Check Grandma’s House, Antique Stores and Thrift Shops

These are great places to find china, crystal glasses, chandelier prisms and strands, vintage mirrors, and delicate lace.  Select several pieces and cluster them together. Selectively incorporate a single bloom or two in a bud vase and you’ll have a beautiful centerpiece.

Visit the Beach!

Beachcombing is amazing for finding interesting natural pieces like driftwood, nautilus shells, and sand washed rocks.  Add these elements to your vintage finds for warmth and visual interest. Beautiful when paired with orchids.

The Gem Store + A Glue Gun = Inexpensive Details

Bring on that bling! Add a simple but dramatic detail to an inexpensive votive or vase, by adding gem stones or vintage broaches with a glue gun. Choose a single palette for monochromatic simplicity or go bold with a multitude of bright colors and shapes. Adding a vintage broach to ribbon can be used to wrap a glass vase, or create a gorgeous detail to a napkin fold.
