A Frighteningly Cool Registry Trend: Bugs

Similar to the serpent trend we recently spotlighted, (and update, they're definitely trending! Did you see Naomi Watts' necklace at the Golden Globes?), this registry trend is not for the faint of heart — or really anyone who may have an intense fear of insects or arachnids. But for those brides who crave a dose of whimsy, you'll love this look.

If you're brave enough to voluntarily bring bugs into the kitchen, this Astier de Villatte mug from John Derian is the perfect way to enjoy your morning coffee, and we're loving this playful fish platter decorated with ants, from Laura Zindel Designs. For a plate too pretty to eat off of, hang this Fornasetti beauty up on your wall, or better yet, a collection of them clustered together behind a buffet in the dining room. Add some chic creepy-crawly accents to your desk, with this pretty resin paperweight or this modern beetle box from DwellStudio.

For the bedroom or living room, we're obsessed with this kaleidoscope-inspired entomology cushion — it will add edge to any bed or couch when paired with more subtle throw pillows. Lastly, one of our favorites is this amazing jewel-encrusted spider candle, complete with a container so beautiful you'll want to stash all your rings in it when you've burned the candle down to the wick.
