This is such a wonderful idea for living room decor. It would be a lovely wedding gift from parents or grandparents.

Featured on Southern Living:

“This is one of my favorite things,” says George of the framed envelope in the dining room. It was addressed by George’s great-grandmother to her uncle, George’s namesake, in 1917. He found it tucked away in his grandfather’s dresser. A local printer scanned and enlarged the envelope.”

Such a simple yet sweet idea to warm your home.

Matt and I, along with our family and friends threw an engagement party {finally}! Held in the backyard of my parents home in Laguna Beach. We had a blast putting together an awesome little party to get our loved ones and wedding parties together.

It was a DIY party. We took care of everything from the food to the lighting canopy. It turned out great and I am so excited to be able to share it with you. I am currently compiling pictures but I wanted to share a sneak peak : )

Constructed my Matt and my father. I gave them some inspiration via {my pinterest} and they threw together the perfect design.

Courtesy of KittenBear. I have seen this DIY floating all over the internet. Today I found simple DIY instructions and wanted to share. . .

1. Before you get started – You will need the following:
~ Picture frames – either one for each heart or one large enough to hold multiple hearts. I chose to have quite large hearts so I got one for each. I think plain white frames are the best for this DIY, but play around with different styles, you might find something you like better!
~ Maps of important or significant places – vintage maps are lovely if you can find them, but I just used regular street maps as it was easier and much cheaper! I had to get one map from overseas and snagged it on ebay for fairly cheap.
~ Scissors, glue or sticky tape, and a light coloured pencil.
~ A heart shaped template.
~ White backing paper.
2. Locate the part of the map that is significant and line up and trace your heart around the chosen area. Don’t press too hard or else your lines will show up later.
3. My template was actually a clothing tag from a dress I bought. I’m not great at drawing nicely shaped hearts, but if you are all you need to do is draw and cut one out to use as a template. Remember that the heart needs to be big enough to cover the chosen area of the map.
4. Carefully cut out each of your map hearts, ensuring all the edges are smooth and neat and no pencil marks are obvious. I chose to have maps of where the groom proposed (Las Vegas), where the wedding was being held and where the couple live (their first home together).
5. Lay out your backing paper (and cut to size if need be) and lay out your hearts how you would like them to display. At this point I decided I wanted to label the three locations – ‘The Proposal, The Big Day’ and ‘Happily Ever After’. I then proceeded to spend the better half of an hour re-writing these three phrases over and over again until I decided on the one in which I hated my hand writing the least.
6. Glue down all the pieces and put into your frames, and VOILA! You have just made a lovely and sentimental gift for loved ones or even for your own home 🙂

This would be a great anniversary or wedding gift. Or just something special for fun!
