the 10
things that are heirlooms in the making


With her styling prowess featured on the pages of high-profile publications like Brides and Country Living (not to mention a coveted contributor gig with kid-centric lifestyle site Babble.com), self-proclaimed "party animal extraordinaire" CYD CONVERSE has good reason to celebrate. So it's no wonder her endlessly pretty wedding and event planning blog, The Sweetest Occasion, is a gold-mine of design eye-candy and soirée inspiration. As editor and creative director, she's established a loyal readership of aesthetes that come back for daily doses of clever project ideas (hello, DIY glitter vases!), style tips and décor ideas. Since she spends her days hunting down all things beautiful,

we tapped Cyd Converse for a list of goods she thinks are heirlooms in the making.
