We love watching the new trends to ensure we are always up to date with our wedding styling and tonight I quickly put together this style board with concrete inspirations found on Pinterest.
As the industrial look hit the interiors world a few years ago we adored the polished concrete kitchen worktops and I was pleased to see the use of marble and stone come back with a vengeance as my entire house has marble floors that I never really liked but now they are bang up to trend!
Of course finally this look is now filtering into wedding world.
So instead of stacking those beaten up vintage suitcases or rustic wooden crates, us wedding stylists have now got to try to pile up concrete blocks!!!! Quite a task and will need some muscle to recreate this look I think!
I do love the simplicity of this style though, combined with succulents, trailing botanical plants, ferns will be making a comeback too and mixed with metallics, is a simple but effective look.
So find those breeze blocks and stack them up for displaying your cakes, creating statement areas and centrepieces. Mix in some sparkle of course with rose golds and copper, add some romantic candles, easy and quite fun but heavy work!
Recently I found a fabulous post on 100 Layer Cake about about making concrete Easter Eggs.
Having tackled some Plaster of Paris projects recently with my 10 year old daughter, this looks rather fun and quite easy as an Easter craft and possibly ideas for weddings, quite what, I have to think about this a bit more 🙂
You can see the link to the concrete Easter Eggs here.
Next time I do a blog post I promise I will do something pretty and floral but seem to be set on greys, stones, marbles and now concrete at the moment although I am sure after trying to move a few concrete blocks I will go off this trend quite quickly and be searching for anything made with fibreglass!
