May the Fourth {Black and White} Star Wars Wedding – Inspiration and Ideas

Happy *ALMOST* May the Fourth!

For those of you who have NO CLUE what I’m talking about, May fourth, also known as May the Fourth, is International Star Wars Day. And if you hadn’t guessed already it’s a play on the quote “May the force be with you”.

I’m a bit of a fan girl myself, so I couldn’t let an opportunity like this pass by. I love alternative and geek weddings, so I knew I had to make one HECK of an inspiration board for this holiday.

I decided to do a play on the colors of Star Wars, the notably black, white and yellow, and turn it into a wedding for the modern fan couple. While there are lots of Star Wars details and elements involved, there are still lots of traditional elements of a wedding, like a cake, floral, etc. that have had a bit of a geeky-god-mother-twist on them.

For example, take a look at the gorgeous wedding ceremony spot I found. It completely looks like Padme Amidala could walk by any moment to head over to the lake. I love the black floral details in it, don’t you?

Let’s take a look at the inspiration in more detail:

High Tea Lunch {With the Girls}

First there were the holidays, then New Years, back to work, back to school, Easter…you’ve probably been running around like crazy keeping busy! When was the last time you had a great lunch with you girlfriends where you could just nibble on some great food and chat and catch up?

I bet it has been too long!

Why not get them together over at your place, and have a cute high tea luncheon! You only need to invite a handful of ladies. Make sure to have a selection of teas and sandwiches, and some pretty sweets to nibble on. Oh, and don’t forget to pick up some lovely fresh flowers for the table!

Don’t worry, if you don’t have enough tea cups, a quick trip to your local thrift shop can fix that problem.

So pencil in a date with your girlfriends and start searching tea sandwich recipes. Here’s my inspiration board for a high tea lunch with the girls:

Sweet Lamb Baby Shower {Ideas}

Did you know I have another blog? I do! It’s my other blog that was actually my inspiration for starting THIS blog here. My original blog is The Sparkle Queen, and that’s where I started sharing my event and wedding design boards.

And you may be asking yourself, “why is she telling us this?”, and hang with me. I’m telling you because on The Sparkle Queen, I’ve have a series called “Etsy Treasury Tuesday” where I share some of beautiful items I find on Etsy in a curated treasury collection. And the other day, the theme was “Decorating a Lamb Nursery for a Baby Girl.” You can check out the post here.

I found SO MANY adorable and just flat out sweet lamb themed items; I just had to turn them into a baby shower inspiration board. I cannot remember the last time I said “Awwww” so many times in an hour!

So without further ado:

You’re Invited: Easter Peeps Birthday Party for Kids

Do you know any kids with birthdays near Easter?

I always wondered if the kids who had birthdays on or around Easter got the short end of the presents-stick, like the kids with Christmas birthdays. But then I got to thinking, the kids with birthdays on or around Easter and Halloween probably have it MADE.

Think about it. During that time, there is literally TONS of yummy candy lining every available store shelf. Those kids can have one heck of an awesome candy party!

That got me thinking about if MY birthday was near Easter, and I was a kid, what kind of party would I want to have? And I immediately thought “PEEPS PARTY”. Naturally I just had to make a party inspiration board for something that cute. Here’s what I came up with:
