I love this Woodland Theme 1st Birthday Party, there are is so much potential for so many things to be done with this party. It could be left simply woodland themed as it is, or other elements can be added like a garden twist; which would easily transform this for a boy to a girl. The woodland theme is perfect for a baby shower, a bridal shower, or any other occasion.
Words from Sun about the party: “When mommy first came to me with her vision of a woodland themed celebration for her son’s first birthday, I was excited! She envisioned earth tone colors with natural elements. Working closely with her, we came up with a very fun yet sophisticated design that brought her ideas to life.”
Chic Rustic Wedding Inspiration brings together two great styles into a beautiful event. My absolute favorite aspect of this inspiration is the beautifully decorated ceremony arbor, with the flowing fabrics beautiful greenery.
Words from Victoria the designer: “The wonderfully talented Seth and Tenielle from Feather + Stone held their first photography Field Day (a condensed version of their popular Field Trips) in early October and I was lucky enough to be invited to coordinate and design the day.”
I love how classy and elegant this Chanel Inspired Baby Shower is. It’s absolutely perfect for a gender reveal party, or a gender neutral baby shower. I absolutely love the Chanel like labels that are tailored for a baby shower. I also love the small touches of the pinks and blues everywhere. The straw mustaches and bows are a great touch to add some elegant fun to the shower.
Words from Candice about the party: “Last Spring, I had the honor of hosting a baby shower for a dear friend. Since the Mama-to-be is both “classy & fabulous,” I decided to go with a Coco Chanel themed celebration. We kept the party gender neutral by incorporating lots of pops of pink and aqua, along with the traditional black and white color scheme of the perfume branding.”
What a beautifully elegant English Country Estate Wedding, it’s such a fairytale way to have the perfect wedding. I love the mini gold picture frames with photos of the bride and groom. I also love the color combination of teal and gold.
Words from the Bride about her big day: “We chose our venue because it had so much character. Maunsel House is a 13th century manor house, full of history. It had such an incredible blend of opulence and elegance mixed with the natural and wild feeling of being on a working estate, with animals and beautiful secret gardens – plus the added extra of peacocks roaming everywhere! I loved the idea of an Art Deco feel, but didn’t want it to become too themed, and then we loved the peacocks so much that they become an influence on the design and colors of our entire celebration.”
I absolutely love the pastel colors in this Butterfly Garden Birthday Party. I also love the Shabby Chic touch that has been added to this Butterfly Garden Birthday Party, it’s a perfect garden party. This is great for not only a birthday party, but as a baby or bridal shower. The wooden pallets used in the decorations make a great and easy DIY project.
Words from the designer Luciara: “The little party was to celebrate the first year of little Laura, her Mom chose the theme and the whole concept was based on offer to the guests a very happy and fun environment! Apart from the distinctive and charming cake table, we create a “Paint cantinho” wood paint for children, and also rode the “corner popcorn” with snacks, drinks for the guests to eat.”
I love Southern styled weddings, they always seem to have such a great charm in them that you can’t find any where else. Sweet Southern Belle Wedding captures the beauty of the South in such a stunning and simple way. I love the use of cotton as part of the decorations, not too overwhelming it’s just the right touch. I also am in love with that huge 6 tiered wedding cake!
Words from the wedding designer: “Addie and Jason never knew when they met online, that they had spent there entire lives growing up only 60 miles from one another! The Bride’s family has spent many years involved in the cotton industry and Addie wanted her decor to reflect that heritage . The lavender her favorite flower, accented the vintage props and scenery!”
The movie Frozen has so many different fun and playful aspects to it; it’s easy to see why everyone loves to have a winter themed party. Winter Frozen Wonderland Birthday is such a beautiful take on the movie. I especially love the huge Olaf birthday cake! The backdrop to the dessert table is absolutely beautiful and would be a really fun DIY project for the party, with your little birthday princess. The cupcakes are absolutely dazzling with the blue icing, decorative cupcake wrapper, and jeweled topper.
Words from Lorena about the party: “A beautiful birthday, full of surprises and entertainment.
Our table decorated with details and a white color scheme and centered around the main character Olaf.”
I absolutely love the color combination used in this beautiful Modern Teal and Gold Wedding. The couple are about to embark on a life long journey together and are actually traveling overseas; having the guests sign a map of the world is wonderfully unique! I also love the lighted tree, perfect for photo backdrops and setting an intimate mood.
Words from the Bride: “I like to joke that my wedding was gifted to me. In over our heads, Steven and I had no idea how to plan a wedding or even where to begin, especially as we were in the midst of transitioning jobs and countries in the coming year.”
Who doesn’t love to fall asleep to a good book? What a great way to influence your child’s love of reading by celebrating by having it part of a slumber party with great friends. In a way, it’s like a really fun book club for the younger generation. My favorite element of the party are the different cupcake toppers, with the reading animals, bunny slippers, and books.
Words from Courtney about the party: “My daughter’s love of books and desire to have a slumber party inspired her “Bedtime Stories” themed 8th birthday party.”
What a great way to have your wedding where you want at half the cost! This Intimate Paris Wedding is a great place to have a wedding, the city of love; or really any other city that you’ve always wanted to get married in.
Words from the photographer: “Imagine yourselves like this couple…Melanie and Dan….after they said “I do”, they decided to celebrate by going wherever the wind blew them. They made no plans other than to enjoy one another’s company in the City of Lights.”
I absolutely love the designs in this Tutu Pink Ballerina Birthday Party. The tutu backdrop is a great and adorable idea. I love the use of an old cart, just painted white as a serving table, it adds a great vintage vibe to the decor of the party. The same with the vintage ladder, that has been repurposed for more table use, but this adds a tiered look to the party.
Words from Johanne about the party: “This beautiful event was put together in a matter of 4 DAYS !! A combined effort with myself and rania rifai we magically were able to whip this up… BIG BIG thank you to our incredible vendors for all the last minute help.”
I absolutely love how beautiful the decor was done in this Shabby Chic Modern Wedding! The tall flower vases with twigs and vines coming out are awesome, and set a great rustic fresh picked look. The vintage doors make for an affordable beautiful backdrop!
Words from the Bride: “Thanks to a tip from a family friend, we stopped by the beautiful grounds of The Alfond Inn, a boutique hotel in Winter Park and it just felt perfect. The fresh architecture and interior peppered with contemporary art, that pretty glass-domed Conservatory, plus some seriously delicious food, thanks to the charming chef Marc Kusche – had us sold! “
I cannot get over the beauty of the details of this Secret Garden Ballet Party! I am in love with the garden cookies, they are soo full of detail and yet they are so small; also the detail of the small flowers all over the one side of the cake is amazing! I also love the mini easels as place card holders, they are completely adorable and go wonderfully with this colorful theme.
Words from Wansze about the party: “My little girl has been obsessed with ballet for a year now. She wakes up wanting to wear a tutu, goes to sleep wanting to wear her tutu, twirls and does splits in the middle of the shopping aisle and loves watching ballerinas. It’s no surprise that I decided to do a Ballet themed party for her 3rd birthday. Alea’s Secret Garden Ballet Recital was so much fun to style.”
Stunning and elegant come to mind when I see the photos for this Pink and Gold Estate Wedding. I love the elegance of the all white tent for the wedding reception, along with the white table cloths. The table decor, is beautifully and simply done so it doesn’t take away from the feeling of elegance. My favorite element of the wedding of course is the fingerprint tree, such a great and unique way to keep the memories of the big day alive.
Words from the Bride about planning her day: “Selecting our venue was a huge decision, and it felt like we had visited every outdoorsy venue in the Hudson Valley. A lot of things clicked into place when we finally we found theWainwright House. The house itself is gorgeous, but it was really the grounds that sold us. We loved that our guests would be able to explore the gardens and walk down by the water. Having our ceremony underneath the two huge trees and overlooking the harbor was a dream come true.”
I love vintage 20’s era themed parties, and this Great Gatsby Themed Birthday takes the cake on how awesome a 20’s themed party can look. I absolutely love the black feathers, and gold sequins that pop out of the top of the cake. Black and gold are always such a great choice for representing past eras, and like this themed party; great for celebrating 30 years of life! I also love how simple the table is decorated, with a black table cloth and gold sequined table runner, it’s just perfect!
Words from Rachelle the party planner: “Creating this beautiful lolly table and table styling for Chloe’s 30th was so much fun. I love this theme! The aim to capture the opulence, elegance and grandeur of the time, Chloe had a great night and her and all the party looked amazing. I was so happy to be able to contribute to such a special milestone event.”
What a beautifully unique Chic Country Wedding. I love the use of wildflowers in the decorations, it brings a great country vibe to the chic decor. I also love the use of floral fabrics and lace fabrics cut into strips for part of the backdrop for the dessert table, it’s such a simple and inexpensive way to decorate.
Words from the Bride: “It’s not easy working on a small budget, but being a lover of DIY projects, it sure was fun getting creative and I just love the feel it brought to the day knowing that my friends and family were involved in bringing together all the little touches. It meant a lot to us that so many people were a part of our special day. The overall feel that I was going for was Country Chic. The venue was ‘love at first sight’ for me as it had a very rustic feel to it, so all we needed to do was make it look pretty!”
Sleeping Beauty Inspired Birthday is a perfect fairytale birthday party for any little girl. I love the birthday cake that looks like it’s falling over and being held up by a broom. I also love all the colors of pink, blue, and gold that really work together for the birthday party. The castle backdrop makes for a great background for the party, and fun party prop. The play props are adorable for party guests to make believe that they are playing the real Sleeping Beauty.
More words from Laila: “I really love what I do. I get to make children smile when they walk into their parties! Kora was no exception, this tiny but very determined little girl requested a sleeping beauty party. Kora’s mom Andrea, had a vision so we worked together to achieve it while keeping within her budget. There were lots of DIY projects and touches which made the party picture perfect.”
