Eye Candy Friday {It's All About Sweets}

Anybody that knows me, knows that I have a HUGE sweet-tooth.  So deciding to add a dessert bar service was a no-brainer.  It wasn't anything to think about, but I do check out other pics for inspirtation for my weddings and special events to ensure the sweet station will be a huge hit.  When I came across these pics from scissors.paper.cake, I immediately wanted to grab some sweets.  This birthday party is tooo adorable, I would love to put my stamp on an event like this.

Australians know how to throw a party!! This gorgeous Bumble Bee 1st birthday party by scissors.paper.cake (great inspiration on this site!). Imprintables. Love the pale yelow and white palette and definitely one of my all time favorite dessert tables. Just look at that backdrop!

We Love Baby Showers!

Besides weddings we love styling showers and parties, so when I came across this beautioful baby shower picture I was too excited.  The color palette is so fun and really puts some pizazz in the traditional colors for baby showers.  The color palette for the party was inspired by the Tiny Prints invitation. A tent covered the beautiful table setting, and was decorated with paper lanters and a special “Baby Mama” banner. They made sugar scrub jars for the party favors and it doubled as the placecard. My favorite decorative element is definitely the huge Z they covered in artificial flowers…the baby-to-be’s name is Zoe. Baby Zoe’s room is to be decorated with bla-bla dolls so they made tags on the back of all of the chairs with cut outs of different bla-bla dolls. And here is a darling activity: while the guest of honor, opened gifts, they had baskets of ribbons, glue and buttons for the guests to make baby Zoe hair clips! Too cute, right?

Bridal Chic - Elizabeth St. John Couture

Photo: Elizabeth St. John Couture

While Green is proliferating everywhere on the bridal scene, where can you find eco-friendly and chic all in one wedding dress? Typically green dresses have that tattered Issey Miyaki look which is fine but not for everyone. Enter Elizabeth St. John. Her bridal collection pieces premiered this season and have editors and retailers drooling. She's one of a few designers knowing how to fashion sustainable fabrics into haute couture masterpieces with detailed touches like hand rolled florals. I also can envision some of her basic gems as naturals for customizing.
