“Sphere”iously Chic

Looking for high impact décor without the lace and bling?  Kathleen Golik of TheFindSac.com creates eco-friendly handcrafted spheres ranging from 4 inches to 10 inches in diameter.  The possibilities are endless as the spheres can be custom designed in a variety of sizes to incorporate your wedding colors.  Hang them as featured or place them in vases as unique centerpieces for a clean and simplistic style that’s perfect for an outdoor Hawaiian wedding.  Rather than competing against the natural beauty of the islands, the perfectly round spheres enhance the tropical background.

As a former student of sustainable architecture and interior design, Kathleen puts each sphere through strict quality control to ensure that they are perfectly round and photo-shoot ready.  Her passion for sustainability, creativity and design are evident in each of her pieces and flow hand in hand with the spirit of Aloha. 

You can purchase a set of 5 hanging spheres $55.00 here:   http://www.etsy.com/listing/103027522/wedding-decoration-hanging-spheres  or email her at Kathleen@thefindsac.com for a custom order.

Get Your Fold On...

Want an easy budget friendly way to wow your guests and add to your décor, without breaking the bank? Enlist your bridal party and have a napkin folding party!  Whether you choose an elegant or a unique fold, it's one detail that all your guests definitely won’t miss! 

We love the Bijou fold featured above from Delish.com that mimics a tropical leaf and makes the perfect addition to an island wedding.  The orchid placed on top is an added bonus, making for a clean and stylish place setting.  The step-by-step directions are really easy to follow (http://www.delish.com/recipes/napkin-folding/bijoux-napkin-folding) but you’ll need plenty of starch and an iron to keep the folds nice and crisp.  So, grab your wedding party (or your groom) and get your fold on!
