Interactive Stations: Seafood Display

Posted in Uncategorized

If you are a lover of all things Seafood like I am, I am sure you would appreciate seeing one of these displays at the next event you attend. In a seafood display (sometimes referred too as a seafood boat), you can usually find a wide assortment of fresh seafood choices such as: shrimp, oysters, clams, crab legs, whole lobsters, etc.

Inspiration Station – Mason Jars

Posted in Uncategorized

When it comes to your event get CREATIVE. Turn to ordinary household items and try to find a way to incorporate them by using your unique sense of style. This does not mean to get all DIY crazy, but look to the ordinary to get you extraordinary. Mason jars have always been on the scene for a few reasons:

  • They are available in bulk and can even be purchased in your neighborhood grocery store
  • They come in a variety of colors and shapes
  • They evoke that childhood memory
  • They can be reused over and over again
  • The design possibilities are ENDLESS

Here are some great pictures illustrating the possibilities:

Love the look of these mason jars being used as aisle makers.

If you are having an outdoor wedding, do not be afraid to hang them on near by branches to narrow in the event space and create an intimate setting.

Here are mason jars are used throughout the decor to illuminate the night.

And of course you can use them as the vase for your centerpieces.

Bridal Bar Grand Opening Pt. 3

Posted in Uncategorized

TGIF! I am so excited today is Friday. Not only is it a gorgeous day but it is the start of a pretty amazing weekend. This will be the first time in three weeks that I will actually be at home in Atlanta. Here are the last images from David Murray Weddings from the Bridal Bar event. I stopped by Bridal Bar yesterday and we discussed all of the amazing events that are on schedule to come. This is just the beginning!

As I mentioned yesterday with the Smilebooth, photographers are now doing their own version of photo booths. David Murray Weddings do the Love Booth. Here are few pics from the love seat. Don’t forget to check out the slide show.

Disclaimer: If you see Mr. ellyB in the pics having a ball is because he was! He loves being in front of the camera.

Have a great weekend.

So what is a smilebooth? Bridal Bar Grand Opening Pt. 2

Posted in Uncategorized

The smile booth is the brain child of photographers Our Labor of Love. It is a great fun alternative twist to the traditional photo booths that have emerged at events over the past few years. What I really love about the photo booth is that it can have custom backgrounds and your guests will be the one taking the pictures. That’s right, no longer waiting for the countdown, shoot and click as many times as you like. There are no time limits to how long the fun can last. The best way to get the most out of the smile booth is to just have fun. Be yourself, make fun of your self and the others in there with you. Custom backdrops created by dolci odille, they can do amazing things with paper!

Please don’t ask what I was doing or saying in the pic above!

TIP: A great way to remember all the fun is to make an album of all the images.
