A Red, Red Rose – Wedding Inspiration

Deep red, saturated satins. Lush, vibrant red rose petals. Those are the details that make this wedding extravanga so, well, extravagant.

Here’s what I had in mind for this lux wedding:

Is red too dramatic to be your wedding color? Or do you enjoy the bold, rich hue?

 

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.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Christmas Cookie Decorating Party

I know TECHNICALLY Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and I should probably do one last “fall” inspired inspiration board. But you know what? I don’t feel like it. I’m ready to dive into Christmas! That and I am not a huge fan of autumn (mostly out of never having experienced it) and today is an abnormally cold day for us here in Florida. And by cold I mean it’s 65 out. That’s cold for us, don’t be jealous!

Now that we are past that, and we have both come to terms that it’s pretty much been all about Christmas in the US since, November 1 (you know it has!), what better way to REALLY dive into the season then by decorating cookies? Cookies + Sprinkles + Eggnog = a good time. Add some friends, some Christmas classics on the radio and you will be having a great time.

This would also be a fun theme for a kid’s birthday party that happens to fall close to the holidays. I know if my birthday was around this time of the year I’d want to do this with all my friends. Though, I also think a snowman building party would be a blast too.

Let’s get to it, here’s what I’m thinking:

Apple Themed Fall Dinner Party

I had so much fun creating last week’s pumpkin inspired dinner party, I created another fabulous dinner party idea board for this week – but themed around apples! I was channeling a cool fall night, some close friends over….and thought about what would I want to have. I knew good food was a must (and these recipes have rave reviews!) with simple but pretty apple elements. Here’s what I had in mind:

Burgundy Ombre Fall Wedding Ideas

Have you ever just seen something and instantly knew THAT would be your inspiration? I had one of those moments while browsing Pinterest, like you do at 10 o’clock at night. It just so happened that this gorgeous dress found its way into my feed. Isn’t it stunning?

If you follow my inspiration boards, you know I’m not one to normally include people, let alone clothing or dresses into my boards. But in this case- it was just necessary.

Here’s the inspiration board I put together around this incredible dress:
