So you have decided to do cupcakes instead…

Posted in Uncategorized
Cupcakes in lieu of cake is still very high in demand. The benefits of doing cupcakes instead of cake is that you can do many different flavors and detail on the cupcakes to show your true expression. Cupcakes made their debut during weddings as favors or display, but now we see them across all kinds of events. From mini to jumbo cupcakes in various flavors and hues.

Being creative you can have the right cupcake stand to also carry through on your design element. Below is just a small array of your options out there. You can go from your traditional cupcake tree or get something a bit more custom in your decor style and colors.

Tablescape we Adore

Posted in Uncategorized
Sometimes you flip through a magazine and you can find the most inspiring tablescape or decor item. Here is an image that has had the most impact for me this week.

Around the table there are compliments of a plum chandelier, cranberry votives and table runner with matching glassware and decor. The use of texture is brought in with the ribbon tied around the flatware and feather accenting the bread dish. Everything screams cohesive.

Inspiration Station: Peacocks Pt.2

Posted in Uncategorized
Everyone loves peacock! What I love most about the idea of incorporating peacocks into an event is that you do not only have to use the peacock pattern. Bridesmaids dresses could be in peacock blue while your wedding dress adorns a peacock blue sash. Your linens could be a nice shade of emerald green with hues of blue and purple floral arrangements.

I love the fact that this couple decided not to use the peacock design on their cake and left it white. However they used the peacock design as an imprint with a bouquet of peacock feathers serving as the backdrop. This allowed a simple white cake to now become the main attraction of the reception.

This peacock platter can serve as a sign in platter by using a fine tip gold sharpie.

These tablescapes do not have any of the peacock pattern present but with the use of the color scheme you can still see where the inspiration derived from.

Glass Pedestals for your next Candy/Cookie Bar

Posted in Uncategorized
Move over apothecary jars. There is a new jar on the block that would like to be recognized. The Pedestal glass containers are looking to be the next big thing in candy, cookie, or cereal bars. What is great about these kinds of set ups is that it does not need to be filled with edible goodies, you can use some of them to add texture to your event by implementing decor showcased in some of the vessels.

Ribbon Centerpiece Ideas

Posted in Uncategorized
It’s the simple things, no really it is. There are so many things you can use in order to enhance the current items you are working with. For example, you can take a plain vase and make it a custom centerpiece by adding ribbons, buttons or a lace pattern. You can do this throughout your event and use them on almost everything to make your designs cohesive. You may decide to use one ribbon pattern on your main centerpiece vase and a plain ribbon with your accent colors on the votives surrounding. The possibilities are endless!

Don’t forget use varying heights to add to the element of surprise.

I love that the next piece does not actually have the ribbon wrapped around the base of the vase but instead used as decor inside the vase. Definitely a twist from the traditional stems.

Bud Vase Centerpiece Ideas

Posted in Uncategorized
I have always loved the look of a single flower stem in a bud vase. We have seen them used as place card holders as well as accent décor around centerpieces. There is a strong emergence of bud vases used in groups to be the main centerpiece. At first they were used only in restaurant based events, but not anymore!

You can become a collector of bud vases from your local store or antique shop and get them for as little as .25 cents. They can be dispersed upon your guests so each person leaves with a piece of your centerpiece, or used for décor n your future home. The best part is this can be an inexpensive idea for florals if you are on tight floral budget.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match colors, shapes and sizes. Be diverse in your choices. This will provide a stunning appeal to the eye.
