Brides whose taste runs a bit rustic should check out the relatively new shop Lilacs and Lace. You’ll find jewelry (not just for brides, mind you), boutonnieres and bouquets and had screen printed cards. The shop is run by a university student studying Graphic Communications who is currently trying to fund her own wedding. Lilacs and Lace was started when she realized that she just wanted to constantly make things and loved working with her hands.
I love love love the champagne swarovski and moonstone earrings because they are just so gorgeous! They catch the light beautifully.
At lilacs and lace you’ll find lovely nature inspired wedding flowers made from long-lasting silk flowers, feathers and other elements. If you want your wedding flowers to last forever, this is the way to do it. Her rose bouquet is ensconced in cholla wood for a unique look. I also love how she works metal leaf elements into her boutonnieres. It really gives what can be pretty standard a modern edge and extra interest.
I take my inspiration from nature. 100%. I love things that look like you could have plucked them right from outside.
The shop gets it’s name from two of the owner’s favorite things. Lilacs, her mother’s favorite flowers, are close to her heart. On an annual trip to Denver, she cuts multiple stems from her mother’s lilac bush, and bringing the beautiful blooms and lingering scent home. Lace, on the other hand, has such texture and history to it. The artist often find herself in antique shops looking at the old lace tablecloths wondering what sort of occasions they must have seen. One day Lilacs and Lace‘s artist hopes to be able to focus on her craft full time. She’s off to a good start, so let’s give her some encouragement and a few more sales.
