Greenery is about new beginnings, it’s a natural, peaceful shade that pairs with a massive spectrum of colours and always grounds the palette. We have been massive fans of gorgeous greenery wedding palettes for a while now and are looking forward to seeing it appearing in more rustic, organic wedding decor in 2017. While we’re loving the actual shade of Pantone’s Greenery, for our greenery wedding palette we’ve gone quite literal with it, bringing in lush leaves, garlands, foliage, fern, forest greens – foliage is the new flowers.
“Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew,” says the press release for Pantone. “Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.”

DIY SPECKLED CLAY KEYCHAIN by sugar & cloth
All you need :
- clay get it here
- rolling pin
- cookie cutter
- black tape or any tape for covering
- black paint & white paint also brush
Follow the clay packet instructions for preheating the oven and start by rolling some of the polymer clay into a ball. On a sheet of greaseproof paper roll this out with the rolling pin until it’s roughly.
Use the cutter to make the circular shape and remove any excess.
Make a hole near the top using a pencil, pushing it right through. Transfer the greaseproof paper onto a baking tray. This way you don’t have to lift the clay itself up and risk misshaping it.
Bake for the recommended time and then leave to cool fully afterwards.
Make a geometric shape in the corner of the clay, blanking out anything you don’t want colored by covering it with tape. Now apply a few thin layers of white spray paint, allowing it to dry in between.
Once totally dry, use a paintbrush and ink to splatter black all over the white. Leave this to dry completely.
Remove the tape to reveal the speckled white shape and then repeat with more tape to create a triangular shape overlapping the white speckled area. Use this as a guide to paint on the color you want in acrylic paint. Do a few lights coats and leave to dry fully. When it’s dry glaze the area to seal and give a luxurious shine.
When it’s all dry remove the tape and attach the chain / ring and your keyring is ready for action!

From drinks and dos to eats and retreats, our go-guide to Sydney has you covered. Are you ready to live it up, or wind it down, in the harbour city?
1. Learn to surf <3
Sydney has approximately 70 surf beaches that cater to all levels of surfing skill, from small waves for beginners to big breaks for the more experienced and adventurous. Four Sydney beaches feature on the National Surfing Reserve Register, a list of iconic surfing spots in Australia: Manly, North Narrabeen, Cronulla and Maroubra.
2. Grab your mates for a picnic in Centennial Park, and secure one of their BBQs for free!
3. Get on your bike and explore the city by following a cycling trail or joining a bike tour. Make sure you stop at one of the many cafes who cater for cyclists around the city. Drop into Bespoke and Grind in Marrickville; Atelier in the city; Deus Café in Camperdown; and Town Bike Pitstop en route.
4. The Sydney Festival will bring the city to life from 9 – 26 January with performances from some of the world’s best artists. From late-night burlesque to international theatre; from avant-garde classical to indie and world music, the Festival has something to cater to every taste and budget.
5. Watch the sun set on yet another Sydney summer’s day at one of the city’s rooftop bars. Try the Glenmore Hotel in The Rocks for amazing views across to Sydney Opera House; Corridor in Newtown; the patio at The Darlo Bar; Ivy Pool Club and The Terrace at the Woollahra Hotel.
6. You can’t beat catching a ferry from Circular Quay over to Watson’s Bay for fish & chips from Sydney’s iconic summer dining hot spot, Doyles. Pack your swimmers and a ball for a dash of cricket if you’re up for a classic Aussie day in the sun.
7. From 24 January – 9 February, Sydney’s Chinese New Year Festival will see the city come to life with a vibrant run of cultural events, markets, tours, exhibitions and entertainment. Plan to be in town on the 2nd of February for the Twilight Parade; an impressive show of lanterns, lights, dragons and dancers as the Chinese community welcome in the Year of the Snake.
8. Do something different this summer by snapping up your ticket to a Twilight at Taronga performance. Taronga Zoo’s concert stage is set to sizzle with a hot line-up of shows spanning eight weekends in February and March. Check them out and nab your ticket now.
9. There’s no better lure to visit Sydney this summer than The Lion King musical showing at the State Theatre. Seen by over 70 million people, this landmark musical event is a must see.
10. The Sydney Opera House is hosting Summer at the House; an exciting summer calendar packed with entertainment and culinary experiences. A free giant sandpit and visits from Taronga Zoo’s native animals will keep little kids entertained, while the big kids soak up the pop-up bars, cafes and restaurants.
11. If you really want to live it up, why not take a scenic flight across the Harbour, taking in Sydney’s stunning views, before landing at Circular Quay ready for lunch at Peter Doyle @ the Quay? Prices start from $599 per person including the harbour flight and lunch.
12. For kids young and old, the much-anticipated Wet’n’Wild Sydney has well and truly opened its doors for those seeking endless summer fun. Get ready to take on more than 40 slides and attractions, and some of the tallest and fastest rides in the world!
13. Kayak in the harbour
No other city can boast such a range of places to go kayaking. Deep gorges, dense bushland, sandy beaches, wandering creeks, spectacular views, mighty sandstone outcrops – Sydney has it all. One of our favourite spots to explore is Pittwater. The western side is the most interesting, away from the mega-houses and scampering yachts and powerboats. Take a walk through the bush to the waterfall and paddle the creek itself. There are two beautiful sandy beaches on Morning Bay – a perfect spot to rest up and catch some rays.
14. Eat noodle under the stars
Spice Alley is a little piece of Singapore in Sydney, but the food isn’t limited to Singaporean – there’s tonnes to choose from. Tucked behind the Kensington Street laneway in Chippendale, the open-air courtyard serves up hawker style dishes from across Asia. Our picks of the serving windows are Alex Lee Kitchen for their authentic Singaporean dishes, Thai and Vietnamese street food from Bang Luck, Malaysian street food at Old Jim Kee, and Cantonese comfort food at Hong Kong Diner.
15. Wandering around in the secret garden
There's no paint, only plants. No canvas, only soil. No pencils or brushes, only sunshine and greenery. But the ‘optical erotica' that inspired Brett Whiteley at the foot of his Lavender Bay home has been reborn. For years, this land was tangled, overgrown and strewn with rubbish, a dead-end dump for surplus trains and derelict humanity. But when Brett died in 1992, his widow Wendy channelled her grief into creating a place of enchantment: natives, exotics, herbs and towering fig trees run along winding gully paths while parrots, gulls, kookaburras, owls and wagtails chatter amidst the flowers and berries. Tucked away in the shadow of office towers, it is both public land and private paean to love, loss and renewal.
16. Want an excuse to don your budgies or rock your bikini? Come 2nd of February, thousands of swimmers will descend on Manly ready to splash their way through the 31st annual Sydney Morning Herald Cole Classic.
17. Making the most of Sydney in summer can be thirsty work, so why not join one a Sydney small bar walking tour? Discover heritage buildings, laneways and most importantly, the hidden, quirky watering holes around town. Tours start from $50 per person.
18. Challenge yourself today with Circus Arts, the original and the best Flying Trapeze company in Sydney!

What you will need:
Step 1: Gather materials. If you are using vintage books or sheet music as your paper source make sure it is still flexible enough to curl with your fingers. The wire can be found at the hardware store, and is sometimes called “black wire” or “annealed coil wire.” This wire is flexible, but still very sturdy. If you are making naturalistic roses you can wrap the wire in green floral tape. I tend to enjoy the simplicity of the wire as it is.
Be sure you are using low temp hot glue because you’ll be able to feel it right through the paper petals as you work.
Step 2: Cutting. You will need to stockpile at least 5 different sizes of petals ranging from about ¾ inch wide to 3 inches wide. I cut freehand, and avoid templates, so that each petal is a unique and organic shape. Think of the shapes as little church windows or arches. Some can be pointy, and some can be rounded. For each flower you will need at least 4 of each size. Make more than you need. For the roses you see here the smallest petals are about 3/4 x 1 1/2 inches, and the largest petals are up to 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.
Step 3: Shaping. I really feel that this is the most important step to create natural and soft looking flowers. Roll the edges of each petal, and pinch the base slightly. Each one can be done a little differently to give the petals character and roundness. I shape all of my petals before I even begin gluing anything.
Step 4: Rolling the center. You need to cut out one more shape for each flower, and this is for the coiled center of the rose. This shape should be about 2 ½ inches long with a rounded tip. Roll it up into a tube to create its shape. Unroll it and run a bead of hot glue along the inside and re-roll it around the end of your wire. Another dot of glue will hold it in place.
Step 5: Attaching petals. Begin with your smallest petals. Use a single dot of glue, about ¼ inch from the bottom of the petal to attach it to the stem. Your next petal should overlap the first. Continue adding small petals, rotating the stem as you go, always slightly overlapping the last petal you attached. This is where your artistry will come in as you continue to rotate and build. As you begin adding larger petals pinch the bases, as they are much wider. By pinching at the bases you will be rounding out the rose, and creating space between layers.
Step 5: Finishing. The sepals will be made of ribbon, which will also cover your final seams and create a nice polished look. Each rose needs two - 4 inch lengths of ribbon. Wrap them around the stem and secure to the undersides of the petals. Cut a ‘V’ into each end of the ribbons to finish.
If you are making a bouquet gather all of the stems together, nestling the roses together. Wrap the stems tightly with floral tape. Use wire cutters to even out the ends of the wire stems. I like bouquet handles to be about 5 1/2 inches long. It's personal preference, but I find longer bouquet handles start looking odd and less photogenic. I like to wrap the handles in 3 or 4 layers of cardstock to thicken and cushion before covering it in ribbon or twine.
