Style Tip: Uncage Your Creativity


[photography: bella jay photography wedding rental: colonial house of flowers]

These days, wedding birdcages are everything but boring. By simply adding ribbon, candles, flowers, signs or even a little chalk you can make a boring birdcage into a whimsical style building element. If you’re from the south Georgia area you likely recognize this bird cage – as part of our rental lot it’s been a touch in many of our favorite couple’s nuptials over the years.

Here are some birdcage ideas:

So, back to the bird cage at the very tip top. Do you recognize it? Was it a part of your event? Tell us how you used it. Better, share your pictures with us. Yes! We’d love to see:

P.S. It’s Monday…

Hi everyone! My name is Paige Shearer.

And, I am the public relations intern at the wonderful Colonial House of Flowers.

Every Monday I’ll post something on our blog from myself, it may not be about what I am currently working on in the shop, or even about flowers at all.  Rather, something I think is interesting, amusing or enchanting & would love to share. Fun, huh?

Today I’m going to tell you all about one of my latest obsessions: Emi Jay hair ties!

I’m sure you’ve heard of them before. They’re stretchy accessories for tying your hair up that don’t  leave a crease. Wow! Finally done with throwing my hair up for five minutes and not being able to take it down because of that awful crease that pony tails leave in your locks – not to mention how bad they are for you!

These hair ties come in an assortment of colors.  And, look cute even when they’re around your wrist. My favorite places to find new Emi-Jay’s around here are:  RJ Pope, Threads, Viola’s Market & next door at Entourage

If shopping isn’t your thing, here’s a tutorial on how to make your own Emi-Jay inspired bands. Or, Social in the Market District has a hair ties that are similar to Emi-Jays.

You can even dress them up with things like flowers:

Emi Jay has headbands, ties & bows. And, they all work amazingly.  Okay honestly, they HOLD for everything – a workout,  a long day of vase building, plant gathering, flower deliveries, class  and campus. They even work for high-glamour situations  and well, so many different occasions.

So, I am sharing my latest obsession in this first post. Seriously – they stay in place. All day. And look super chic.

Hope you have crease-free hair days ahead!

Until Next Week,

P.S. It’s Monday
