This week, I’d like to introduce you all to Pinterest, you may have already heard of the internet-phenomenon but in case you haven’t:
(From Pinterest.com) Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.
Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
This doesn’t sound like something I would normally find too appealing, however, if you search for the right things, it’s an easy way to find and save inspiration for future events and menus! For any bride-to-be, I suggest browsing through Pinterest for things like centerpieces, flowers and reception décor to give to your wedding or event planner to help them better understand your vision. Users have uploaded literally thousands of pictures to look though so you’re sure to find something you like. Another idea is to browse through the engagement or wedding photos section. Find some shots you like and give it to you photographer so they know what type of style you’re looking for!
I like using Pinterest to find recipes for the home. There’s usually a picture of the dish and a link with the recipe. It’s easy to simply “Pin” the recipe to my board so I can come back to it whenever I’m ready. I can also follow some of my friend’s and family’s pinboards to see what they are “pinning” to draw inspiration for my next great culinary masterpiece.
The possibilities are endless on what you can find on Pinterest. I definitely recommend setting up an account! Happy pinning!
