Navy, Mint, Peach + Gold Bridal Shower

Hello!

This week is all about colors! Not just bright and bold, but those sought after spring tones. I’m lucky to not have any sort of serious winter season here in Florida, but still appreciate spring themed parties. We tend to enjoy the few days out of the year it is not excessively hot and humid out.

This week I’m introducing you to a navy, mint and peach bridal shower, with the slightest hint of gold mixed in.

I really think the navy with a touch of gold helps welcome the fresh mint and peach tones into this inspiration board theme. I’m loving this color scheme as a baby shower, or bridal shower, but really think it could be used in a ton of functions. Hellloooo ladies luncheon!

Here’s what I’m thinking:

Black, Gold + Sequin Celebration Inspiration

You know, all that’s missing from this week’s inspiration board is a nice bottle of champagne. Or maybe a champagne tower, you know, with the glasses overflowing with champagne being poured down, layer by layer. Yup, that’s really all this needs.

My natural instinct is the make this into a wedding theme, but to be honest, it could work for a fabulous awards dinner, gala fundraiser, and even on a smaller scale birthday party.

A Garnet Inspired Birthday Party for the January Princess

Happy Birthday to ME!

This inspiration board is fantastic, if I do say so myself. I made it completely centered on my birthday. I’m a January baby, who loves her garnet birthstone. If I had excessive amounts of money to spend on a lavish birthday, this would be what I would want this year. Luxury, rich jewel tones with fabulous floral and cases of delicious wine. What more would a princess want on her birthday?

Oh- I know! The perfect dress to wear to such a party! Check!

A Wedding in Red Velvet

Happy New Year!

I hope 2015 is off to a brilliant start for you! To start this year off with quite the bang, I’ve put together a dashing wedding – in red! Red velvet to be precise. This theme would be spectacular for wintery wedding, without going into the Santa’s velvet coat avenue. No, this is a muuuccch darker red, with a more sultry vibe about it. Fabulous for a wedding, but I think any gala or fundraiser could do well with this theme too.

Star Bright New Year’s Eve Party Ideas

Cheers!

In just a few hours we will be ringing in the New Year: 2015. Can you believe it?

2014 has flown by!

This week I’ve put together an inspiration board sure to delight: a star themed New Year’s Ever party! This is going to be great inspiration for someone hosting a medium sized get together at their house, you know, with a dozen or two of their friends, some champagne in the fridge and the music playing in the background getting everyone ready to dance and excited for the New Year. Hints of black and gold stars bring together all of the elements in this party.

Christmas Eve Cookies and Milk Party Ideas

Hello! And Merry Christmas! As Christmas Eve is drawing nearer to completion, and everyone is getting snuggled up in their comfiest of PJs, why not gather the family together and have a little midnight par-tay? Ok, maybe not AT midnight, but late night, when it is dark, and cold out and it’s about “that time” to get everyone to bed.

What if you had a little family PJ party, with some warm milk and a few cookies? A few cookies mind you – you’ve gotta leave some for Santa! This would be such a fun bonding opportunity for your family or just your other half, and a great new tradition. You don’t even have to open presents. Just get some cookies, your PJs and sit around the lit tree with all the other lights off. It’s a pretty magical moment. Plus, you can get some uber cute pictures of the little ones!

Here’s what I had in mind: (and yes – paper plates and small servings are PERFECT for this last minute get together!)

Black, White, Green and ICE! – Wedding Anniversary Ideas

Yup- you read correctly: black, white, green and ice!

Picture this: it’s a decade or two from now. You’ve been with your other half for ages. You are surrounded by family, friends and loved ones. You want to throw a fabulous wedding anniversary. But it’s winter, and everything is red, green and gold. You want something modern, but elegant. You want something chic, dramatic…. You want WOW!

Go with a black, white and green (and ice!) color theme! It is modern, can be done easily, and is incredibly chic. This anniversary is going to be like no others. You’re having a specialty tent erected, custom ice sculptures crafted, luxurious linens delivered, and the best caterer in town.

Here’s what I’m envisioning for you, beyond that white carpet entrance:

I LOVE the ice element, don’t you? It just has so much impact! What I really love about this theme is its versatility. While I originally planned this inspiration board for a wedding anniversary, it would work just as well for a wedding, a holiday party, or a gala fundraiser. The sky is the limit with this design!

Fill in the blank: Black, White and ………? (What color would you choose?)
