DAY TWO: floral wedding finds
featuring: dried flower country wedding accents by theflowerpatch


Here is my submission for @meredithannebull‘s Strange Magic contest. I re-watched the movie for ideas of what all to put on the wreath and had a lot of fun making each piece and putting it all together. Still love this movie with all my heart <3


Oh So Succulent

I thought it might be time for a little wedding planning update. While scouring this scary-overwhelming place known as Pinterest, I discovered that I have a thing for succulents. I’ve never been one for flowers (I know, I must be evil right?) so I was looking for something different to add to a bridal bouquet. I don’t want to have a set color scheme for the wedding but I do want to see lots of white with gold accents. I love how succulents look super fresh and simple when combined with white flowers and leafy greens. Some of them come in this beautiful shade of dusty lilac which I also love! They’re pretty versatile in that they fit a rustic look yet still look very rich and polished.

tap into etsy sellers for your wedding florals, too! these bad boys are made from fresh and dried flowers, plants, and herbs — there are bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, and more in all KINDS of designs! love the succulents, obvi.


the days grow longer and the air sings with life, and even the sunsets seem more vibrant. colors of all shades and hues of the spectrum beckon you out to be among them, among the gentle kiss of the suns rays and the ubiquitous floral fragrance that reminds you of a simpler time. what better cause could there be to gather among the blossoms and signs of spring to celebrate the end of winter and the dawn of new beginnings with song, dance, and the best of company?

Hello! Tori here, and I am proud to present Stella City’s second mini-event, The Vernal Ball! This event will run from Friday, May 12th through Sunday, May 14th. This event will focus on on-dash threading. All are welcome to attend – in fact, they are encouraged to! The more, the merrier.

The ball’s host, Margaery Tyrell, is pleased to offer the following activities to all those who attend the ball.

  • Margaery has hired DJ Baaled, a sheep well-versed in music from the classical era all the way to modern music, providing a wide enough range of musical selections that everybody should be able to find something they can dance to.
  • Starlight Garden has graciously allowed us the use of their facilities for this even. There will (obviously) be a dancefloor available for those who feel the urge to show off their moves, but if you find yourself in need of a moment to rest (or perhaps a quiet moment with a special someone), the gardens are at your disposal. This is all about celebrating the coming of spring, after all!
  • Several very dapper-looking butler sheep will be in attendance to offer food and refreshments to the attendants. It wouldn’t be much of a party otherwise, now would it?
  • Margaery’s flower shop is working around the clock to prepare and provide corsages, boutonnieres, and, of course, flower crowns to help you look your very best on the day of the ball. There will be a stand set up where you can get one of your very own.

Excited for the ball? Here are a few fun ways you can prepare in advance!

  • Post (or draw!) a picture of what you are planning to wear! You can use the tag ‘#steci vernal ball’ to show it off to others.
  • Have a special someone? Had your eye on a special someone, but haven’t had the courage to make that move yet? No better chance than now! Ask them to accompany you!
  • Or, plan with your friends to attend together! Sometimes that can be even more fun than having a date. A lot less worrying about if there’s something in your teeth or if you snorted while you were laughing.

Here are some fantastic fall florals. If it were me I’d avoid the maroon, orange, brown color scheme and go with some other things like the lavenders and greens shown here. BERRIES. Load these babies up with berries. and PINECONES! Of all kinds. Like seed pods. Dried flowers and LEAVES are a great way to go in autumn! 

anonymous asked:

How about the seijou boys going to prom?

I’m only going to do these for the third years, just because I honestly… can’t imagine any of the others going in their year?? Sorry to let you down anon.

& before anyone feels the need to tell me they don’t have prom in Japan, please see this post

  • Oikawa is the one who really wants to go, and convinces the others
  • Iwaizumi and Oikawa are prom dates (not necessarily as a romantic date kinda thing (although that works too), friends go to prom together all the time Iwa-chan!)
  • Matsukawa and Hanamaki go solo (although since the four of them are going together, are they really “solo”?)
  • Hanamaki’s like “won’t Iwaizumi get jealous when Oikawa spends all night dancing with his fans?”
  • Hanamaki’s the best dressed (maybe a little too well-dressed… you aren’t supposed to look that stylish at your high school prom)
  • Matsun and Iwaizumi are in cheap suits, but they look good anyways!
  • Oikawa insisted he and Iwaizumi match outfits in some way (they choose teal, the colour of their volleyball jerseys, since they don’t have a dress colour to match)
  • Iwaizumi wears a black suit, white shirt, and teal tie; Oikawa wears teal trousers (they’re actually coloured skinny corduroys but shh), a white shirt, black suit jacket, and teal bowtie
  • Makki calls them tacky and embarrassing, but Oikawa’s too elated to rise to that bait and be upset about it
  • Iwaizumi jokingly gets Oikawa a corsage (flower arrangement that goes around wrist, usually presented to girls by their prom dates) that matches his boutonniere (flower arrangement worn on the lapel of a suit jacket at prom)
  • Oikawa wears it all night though, and Matsun complains about Makki not getting him a corsage
  • they manage to take a few group shots with just the four of them, but Oikawa is quickly swept away in a clamour of fans wanting to take pictures with him (and he’s wanted for the group shot with all the sports teams’ captains)
  • the other three mingle (no, they don’t, they lurk in the corner drinking the cheap, non-alcoholic champagne, and being generally unsociable)
  • then, it’s dinner time! (they made sure to get assigned the same table)
  • there were two dishes available for dinner, and Oikawa likes Iwa-chan’s better than his own, so he eats most of his, and Iwaizumi has to eat Oikawa’s leftovers
  • Oikawa drags Iwaizumi onto the dancefloor at the first opportunity, but Makki and Matsun escape dancing to the first couple songs
  • Iwaizumi soon returns to the table, having very low stamina when it comes to dancing
  • the fanclub descends on Oikawa, although he tactfully avoids dancing with any of them during any slow songs (he needs a drink, he needs to rest his feet, etc etc)
  • eventually, Oikawa manages to drag the other three onto the dancefloor, and they dance together!!
  • Iwaizumi and Oikawa almost slow dance, but Makki and Matsun make fun of them to such a degree (by imitating them) that Oikawa gets upset and storms off
  • he’s fine though, Iwaizumi slow dances with him in the hall, and Makki and Matsun even apologize! Unheard of 
  • then Matsukawa dances with Oikawa while the other two rest their feet
  • they stay fairly late, but eventually, everyone starts trickling out, to after-parties and such
  • even though most of them have invites to multiple after-parties, the four of them just go to Makki’s house, and hang out in his backyard, just sitting on the grass (maybe some picnic blankets, wouldn’t want to ruin their nice suits), looking at the stars, reminising about the past and thinking about the future
  • y’know, classic prom stuff
  • the tables were scattered with (real!) rose petals, of all things, and Oikawa collected as many as he could, and has an enormous stack of wilting petals to deal with the next day 
  • (he dries them in a flower press, and Makki says he’s “repulsively sentimental”)
  • they do nothing the next day except sit around Makki’s house gossiping about their classmate’s terrible outfits from last night, and of course,  complaining about how much their feet hurt
“Knockout” - Kurt/Blaine

“Can I teach you how to box?”

Part 10 of the Cuffed Verse

Warnings: discussion of past bullying and assault

~3500 words


Kurt shouldn’t be nervous.

He and Blaine have spent the past five days of his blissful suspension getting to know each other better outside the mania of McKinley High. Kurt, able to sleep in now that he’s temporarily free from the place, wakes to Good morning! texts he can tell Blaine sent as soon as he woke up, because they arrive at 6:00 every morning. Then, they text throughout Blaine’s classes and Kurt’s reality TV marathons. Blaine sends updates on the football players’ post-Kurt bruises when he spots them on Friday—Figgins gave Kurt a longer sentence for “starting” the fight—and Kurt takes quiet pleasure knowing those assholes have to walk around telling everyone at McKinley not to fuck with Kurt Hummel, without saying a word.

Blaine brings Kurt’s homework every day that week, and they sit (or lay) on Kurt’s bed and complete their work together—with the door open, thank you, not cracked, as Burt had instructed. In the comfortable silences, Kurt glances over at the way Blaine’s eyelashes fan over his cheeks, how his muscles bulge when he folds his arms under his chin, and the shape of his mouth when he purses his lips in concentration, and Kurt falls a little farther for him before turning back to his own work.

Now, as Kurt approaches the Andersons’ notably large (but not ridiculous) house on a sunny Saturday afternoon, he knows he shouldn’t be nervous, considering he’s seen Blaine every day this week. But that doesn’t stop him from being so.

He rings the doorbell.

I just renewed some listings on etsy including a number of doughnut earrings, my Strange Magic boutonniere and flower soap, my gcbc badge, and my Ice King crown hat. I also have a lot of similar things that aren’t up on etsy right now that you can request and I’ll post a listing for. I’ll post some pictures of some of them.

I’m in pretty desperate need of cash right now so please consider buying something or at least spread this post. My prices are all very reasonable.
