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!

Here’s what I had in mind:

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.
