I absolutely love the colors and classic feel this Classic Pink and Purple Wedding. I love how they used just colorful rose petals for the aisle instead of an aisle runner; it’s much more natural. I love the extravagant centerpieces of the tables with the huge bouquets that rise above the tables. I especially like how the wine bottle labels are also the dinner menus, a great ingenious idea! I love the natural feel of the how the cake looks with the owls in a nest as the cake topper, berries and succulents; it brings a great woodland feel to the wedding.
Words from the Bride: “We wanted a place that was an “almost destination” wedding, where most of the guests could drive to but still stay for the weekend if they wanted. Since I am from the Poconos and Wayne is from Baltimore, we settled on historic and scenic Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and we fell in love with Riverdale Manor.”
Shabby chic is an awesome theme to go with when celebrating any occasion. Shabby Chic First Birthday is one of my favorites for any little girly girl, I would love to do a Shabby Chic party for my own daughters birthday party. I love the personalized cupcake toppers with the baby’s photo, it’s such a great personal touch. I also love the jam party favors, especially with the old fashioned fabric covers that are very shabby chic. I love both of the birthday cakes, the simple pink smash cake for the baby with the fabric banner and the other cake with the blue ruffled look and flowers.
Words from Melissa: “I designed a party all around the shabby flowered planter shown. Sweet table for a sweet girl. For the food I made an arrangement of hor devors including cheese stuffed figs, cheese plate, and salami and provolone rolls, and chicken salad roast beef croissant sandwiches for lunch. Kids enjoyed pre-made lunch bags filled with yummy healthy treats. Guests enjoyed old fashioned sodas or sweet peach tea. Had peaches all included in theme based on her pics we used for party.”
What a gorgeous wedding! I love the simple designs of this California Destination Wedding. I think it’s wonderful that the bride who did a lot of her own decorations, kept a lot the natural beauty of the venue. I absolutely love the wedding cake, from the different shaped tiers to the floral designs.
Words from Sharon the photographer: “This beautiful Alabama bride and groom flew to California to share their vows with family and friends. On the south lawn at the Marina Village in San Diego they were stunning in presentation. Sarah, a DIY bride, put together all the floral arrangements of daisies and most of the other décor to include a cute little smores’ party favors. Their colors were classic gold, brown and ivory, which tied this beautiful wedding together so naturally.”
What an absolutely beautiful baby shower! I love the design of this eye catching Blue Balloon Baby Shower. I love the different designs and texture the shower cake has with chevrons, ruffles, and flower petals. I love how they came up with the concept of having elephants and hot air balloons. The hot air balloon cookies are adorable, they look way too cute!
Words from Trixy about the shower: “This Baby Shower was designed for Baby G who is on its way. We combined elements of baby elephants, hot air balloons and using gray, kraft, navy, and light blue as color to put this simple, but adorable shower together. We didn’t want to go over the top with hot air balloons or baby elephants, but instead used the elements lightly on the décor to bring this theme to life. The dessert table was my favorite to put together with the beautiful cake as the centerpiece. The cake details are so perfect for the theme.”
Sweet English Wedding was put together in a short time frame, but you can’t tell from how beautifully done this wedding is. I love the use of pink, white, and black for the reception; it goes beautifully together. The tuxedo and bridal dress favor boxes are an adorable touch.
Words from Amanda the event planner: Ben and Kaye came to me (Amanda Higham Events) after getting engaged and wanting to get married as soon as possible – 3 weeks to be precise! Kaye sat down with me (Ben was more than happy to leave it to us!) to discuss her dreams for their big day. They only had a very small budget (not to mention timescale!) but I assured them this would not be a problem as long as they could be flexible.
What a beautiful Shabby Chic Paris Party. I absolutely love the beautiful hanging ribbon tassels that make up the backdrop and hang from the table. I like how the designer took the frame, and added decorative paper to make a beautiful art piece for this Paris themed party. I also love the cake, with minimal icing, but a lot of delicious looking strawberries. This party could be used for someone’s birthday party (no matter the age), a baby shower, or a bridal shower.
This Modern Glam Wedding is just stunning, from the natural beauty of the picture perfect venue down to the heart dance floor! I love how the table numbers are olive branches shaped into numbers, and they match the the wedding cake topper along with the backdrop of the cake table. I absolutely love the dark blue sequined bridesmaid’s dress!
Words from the Bride: “The overall theme was elegant and glamorous with a rustic Italian feel—think lots of fresh greenery draped on tables and hanging from the ceiling of the tent. The tables were all covered in sequin table clothes with gold flatware and plates. The chairs were rustic wood farm style.”
What an adorable way to create a memorable birthday party for your little gamer! Minecraft Theme Birthday Party brings the world of Minecraft to reality and into a fun party! I love the creeper pops and the TNT treats. The “pixeled” block cake is an absolutely perfect representation of everything Minecraft. The pixelated cupcake toppers are awesome, with the character face and TNT blocks. I would love to throw this party, there is so much fun to be had in just creating this party. This doesn’t even have to be for a little gamer either, it would be great for your big gamer as well. Also another great use for this party idea, is a video game party; get together a bunch of little or big gamers together for a fun day of gaming.
Here’s yet another great beach wedding! Citrus Beach Wedding is unique in that a lot of decor is uses oranges, limes, and lemons; which brings a lot of natural colorful aspects to the wedding. I absolutely love the natural driftwood arch! Obviously they had to add some support so it would stand on it’s own because it’s not a complete arch, but it does add natural beach beauty to the scene.
Words from the photographer: “Alisha and Tony recently celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary. I wanted to do something special for them, so I invited them to be the ‘models’ for this styled session. They had no idea what they were in for when they said yes. Our team conceptualized the Love and Citrus shoot because we wanted to bring the styled shoot home.”
I absolutely love the feel of this Vintage Neutral Baby Shower!! All the colors are spot on when I think of a vintage party. I love the painted vintage bicycle that’s being used as a party prop. The pink and blue pops are perfect, and keep the guests curious as to what the baby will be! This shower would also be perfect even knowing the gender of the baby! I absolutely love the chevron cake with the bowtie at the bottom. This party would be great to also have a gender reveal thrown in!
This Rustic Campground Wedding, is great inspiration for any outdoor loving couple, and gives me some inspiration for my own wedding. I absolutely love the log arch adorned with flowers, that this happy couple said their vows under! The use of tents adds for a great outdoor feel, along with an inexpensive place (if your guests don’t mind) for your guests and wedding party to stay. The bridesmaid’s dresses add just enough color to the wedding that’s not too overwhelming.
Words from the Bride Kate: “We are both pretty down to earth people who wanted to spend our wedding over a full weekend with our friends and family. We wanted it to also reflect where we came from. We always wanted to be outside away from any city with the ones we loved so the theme slowly became a camping / wilderness type event.”
I am absolutely in love with this Disney Frozen Birthday Party, it’s totally different than all the Frozen parties I’ve seen. There’s generally too much decoration that it feels over done. This one is simple, elegant, yet still shows that it’s all about Frozen. I am absolutely in love with the Frozen silhouette as the backdrop.
Words from Emily about the party: “My daughter is obsessed with Disney’s Frozen and specifically Elsa. I am obsessed with doing everything on my own and on a budget, so this is the party we were able to create. The mantle has a fun tissue banner, ‘Let it go’ with small paper marquee letters, and a old crate made into a painted silhouette of Elsa. The cake table had an Elsa doll cake, snow wands made from tulle for the girls to dance with, cake pops, and cookies (my daughter insisted on icing).”
Green Bohemian Wedding is such a beautiful bohemian wedding! The color palette of jade green with orange and golden yellow tones go perfect together! I love the variety of styles the bridesmaid’s dresses are, they were able to get them custom tailored to themselves, which I think is an awesome design concept.
Words from the photographer about the wedding: “Everything was pretty much made by our wedding planner, Jeffrey Caballero, or myself. Jeffrey built the Chuppah day of and all of the floral arrangements from scratch. He is one of the most talented, creative people I have ever met. All of the mini succulent party favors were put together by myself and a few friends. I found the door we hung the hand dipped clothespin escort cards on the side of the road. All the vintage Swedish table runners were found at various thrift shops and of course Etsy. All of the table numbers were vintage Joshua Tree postcards, one of our favorite places to visit. I was really proud that everything had meaning and purpose. I love beauty in simplicity.”
Two things that girls love the most are brought into this Beach Spa Birthday Party, the beach and the spa! I couldn’t think of a better way to get pampered than by the ocean. I love how the table is under a canopy tent with beautiful flowers! I can’t get enough of the desert table, it is beautifully decorated from the cherry blossoms to the ferris wheel cupcake holders to the beautifully decorated bird cages with bouquets inside. The eye cover cookies are adorable and could almost pass for real ones, if they didn’t look so tasty.
This design could be used for an adult’s birthday party, a baby shower, a bachelorette party, or a bridal shower.
I absolutely love the setting for this Artistic Boho Wedding. Every piece and flower seem to have a beautiful artistic element to it, that’s completely eye appeasing. I love the huge white bouquet with the greenery and just the smallest bit of pink. The cake table is a piece of art all onto itself, with the reflecting glass that only enhances the cake and the setting around it. The groom’s boutonnière, is so simple, a pineapple, fresh and beautiful! I also love the uniqueness of the place settings, each has a hand painted plate with the design matching the first letter of the guests name.
