If you have been watching the news, the biggest story is the flu that has been crippling most American households. Seems I am not immune and have the luck to be hit by this awful bug the past few days. Not exactly what I had planned for this week, but what’s a girl to do? My lack of posting yesterday was due to the fun fever I was battling. As I could not muster the energy to bring my dog for a walk, pulling together a coherent post was just not going to happen. Luckily today the fever is broken and although I am still pretty sick, I couldn’t wait another day to chat with you all about one of my favorite subjects – Sunday night’s premiere of Downton Abbey.
After months of waiting, I have to say it did not disappoint. Some of my favorite highlights were watching Maggie Smith and Shirley MacLaine go toe-to-toe, holding my breath to see if Mary and Matthew would finally be together, having Thomas finally get a taste of his own medicine, and being so proud of Cora’s attitude toward the possibility of losing Downton. But most of all, the biggest highlight was the wedding.
As I was watching I immediately saw two trends for future brides to make part of their wedding.
The first was the amazing diamond headband/comb Lady Mary wore on her wedding day. It was striking and a new twist on the tiara and headband trends of late.

Another scene from the wedding I just loved was the white bunting hung around the town in celebration of the wedding. They were so charming and festive and I immediately thought what a great, easy way to decorate a wedding venue.
Here are some examples of how you can add these festive flags to your own celebrations.
