As much as Twig & Thistle is for all of you it’s also a journal of sorts for myself. It’s a place that I can collect all the things I spot and don’t ever want to forget. This project in particular is just that. I saw this over on Design Sponge last week and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since.

Inspired by Adam & Halli’s circus themed wedding (also a MUST see!) Emily and team from Once Wed created this fantastically charming circus inspired christmas decor. Truth be told, I have been putting off decorating my own tree in hopes that they’ll share the instructions for that beautiful yellow tree topper! Everything from the whimsical ornaments to the genius use of straws – it’s all just so over-the-top cute! See all the pictures here and download the ornaments and poster as well!

Stay tuned, I have an exclusive holiday card by Maddy of The Inspired Bride to share later today….

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about these Menu Wheels by Anna Bond since I spotted them on Design Sponge earlier this week. What a lovely and personal touch to add to a wedding dinner or special event. I’m all for the extra touches so these are right up my alley. To see the full post and to get complete how-to instructions check out Design Sponge here.

The menus coordinate perfectly with Anna’s other recent DIY project for Once Wed. Her Pom Pom Vines are equally as charming and lovely. Stop by Once Wed for all the how-to deets and of course check out Anna’s blog, Rifle, for updates on her incredible work. I can hardly wait to see her feature in the next Martha Stewart Weddings!
