A staycation is not complete without downtime, and even as the hostess, you can sneak away for a few minutes to write down your thoughts and drink a glass of sweet tea or champagne. To inspire your guests in their own journaling activity, put up some of your favorite inspirational quotes around the house on chalkboards. You can even ask your guests to add some of their words throughout the weekend.
Bridal shower place cards can also make for unique party favors. Instead of folding paper card stock, opt for colorful journals or notebooks. Write each guest's name down on decorative paper, and attach it to the front of the journal with double-sided tape. Slightly open the book, and place it on its side in front of the place setting.
Imagine quiet afternoons spent reading on the bed or journaling by the window. White walls, clean linens and lightweight curtains accentuate the dreamy aesthetic, while a wood dresser and desk give the teens' bedroom a sense of timelessness.
Gallery walls are always an eye-catching design feature, but this one takes it a step further, adding a dash of history to its colorful display. Le Petit Journal was a Parisian daily newspaper published during the French occupation of Morocco. Each of the beautifully hand-drawn cover illustrations is a work of art in its own right. Taken together, they present not only a colorful wall feature, but a snapshot of the history that shaped Morocco.
