First off, we wanted to give a huge thank you to all the lovely ladies who guest posted for us while we were away. Each and every one of your posts was so inspiring and we were honored to have you on our blog.
Since Aileen just got married, she has tons of leftover wedding “stuff” laying around, so for our first post back, we decided to find inspiration for how to use some of those items in her new home!
1. Paper Pinwheels.
In Aileen’s wedding: Paper pinwheels were used for a photobooth backdrop, in the table centerpieces, and as boutonnieres (image via Style Me Pretty)
In the home: Place various sizes on your mantle (via Design Sponge) or use them to make giftwrap extra special (via Style Me Pretty)
2. Apple Barrel Baskets.

In the home: Besides being great for holding fruit, you could make a country-style lamp out of one (via Cultivating Life) or use them as pretty storage (via Brown Paper Packages).
In Aileen’s wedding: Twine was used to tie up the programs, wrap the stems of the bouquets, and tie the silverware and napkins together.
4. Vintage suitcase.
