Another week has rolled by so quickly and amidst the stress in daily life, it’s good to take stock of what we’re thankful for.
This week, I am thankful for:
Flowers for weddings can sometimes cost a bomb. And it also feels like a waste to be tossing so many flowers after the ceremony if no one wants to take them home.
I’ve been quite keen on making paper flowers for our wedding but we’ll see how many I can whip up in time. I had thoughts of mixing paper flowers with real flowers but wasn’t really sure how they’d look.
And then I came across these!
Things have been a crazy whirlwind and it’ll probably be even crazier over the next few months. But the good news is that the date for our big day is set!
There’ll be even more DIY projects to come as we prepare for our wedding and I’m excited to share them with you. :)
First up, a brief version of our save the date card design:
(I’ve removed some details for privacy but you get the general idea.)

Despite things getting hectic, it’s always good to take time out to smell the flowers (although not too literally!) My family and I took a trip to Gardens by the Bay in Singapore recently – a newly constructed ‘garden in the city’. In the flower dome, a cool-dry Mediterranean climate is replicated and flowers from all over the world can be viewed up-close.
If you’re in Singapore and love flowers, I’d highly recommend a visit!
In the meantime, here are some free flower desktop wallpapers taken from our trip. Enjoy! :)
Things have been pretty crazy recently but flowers from a loved one always makes my day! There’s just something about the gentle folds of the petals and the beautiful colors. Adds a little bit of magic to the room…
Each time I receive flowers I can’t help but snap photos of them. I’ve decided to turn them into a series of images – for memories and to share with you! If you’ve had a hectic week too, hopefully these will help make your day too :)
