Martha Stewart Weddings Summer 2010...finally!

I have patiently (or maybe not so patiently) been awaiting the arrival of Martha Stewart Weddings Summer 2010 issue to hit the shelves for quite some time. I am so excited it finally has! There are so many wonderful color palettes in this issue. I can't get enough of this magazine! Here are some of my favorite ideas:

Here we have hanging embroidery hoops filled with fabric! Genius!

I love this one. A small embroidery hoop with the guest's name written with a fabric pen!

A doily charger. Beautiful!

Let Martha help out with your table setting registry with her beautiful suggestions!


This bubble glass ornament canopy is just dreamy.

A beautiful color palette for bridesmaids dresses.

No-sew handbag for a bridesmaid.

Sweet peas, poppies, and anemones...how pretty! I love the look of using bottles in different sizes and shapes for centerpieces. Some of these bottles were coated on the inside with glass paint to add a little bit more color.

Opalescent bouquet.

Italian ice. Cantaloupe, lemon-violet liquor, and strawberry-lychee. Yum!

Pyramid candy holders.

Candies wrapped in clear boxes with a touch of translucent paper. Lavender rock candy, crystallized ginger, champagne gumdrops, and gummi peaches. So good!

Candy cones.

Jewel-shaped cookies.

All these ideas are so beautiful. I love when guys wear a grey suit instead of black for a more casual wedding. And all the pale colors of the dresses are so pretty.

Happy Friday!

Thank you for sharing this.
I wouldn't usually buy Martha Stewart Weddings [not wanting to put the moz on myself!] but may be tempted now.
The embroidery frames are pure genius and I'm loving the doily chargers.
