Pink, Mint, Peach, + Gold : Color Inspiration

{Photo by Photographer Stacey Windsor}

The weather is rainy and dreary here today in Ohio. So today I am inspired by light pastel hues with a splash of elegant gold.

I stumbled across this GORGEOUS photo on Pinterest, of course. I pinned to my MINT GREEN wedding inspired wedding boards and have adored it ever since.

If you are looking for soft colors for an elegant spring wedding or event. These hues are for YOU.

Comprised of Minty Green, Soft Metallic Gold, Peachy Orange, Soft Blush Pink, and Light Mauve Pinks. Perfect for a wedding or bridal shower. So VERY LOVELY!

Unique Zebra Party Ideas

I stumbled upon this ADVENTUROUS and FUN zebra party dessert buffet photo by Leslie Gilbert Photography today. Oh my goodness!!! I LOVED how it matched my recently designed zebra themed bat mitzvah invitations. The amazing desserts are by the fabulous The Couture Cakery. Florals by Splint and Daisies.

Fourth of July Party Ideas

One of my favorite holidays is Independence Day! Food, fun, cheer, and last but certainly NOT least family and friends. My favorite July 4th party food is, you guessed it! CAKE, cupcakes, white chocolate covered strawberries, cake pops, and more!

July 4th white chocolate covered strawberries

Last year at our annual July 4th party, I made these. White chocolate covered strawberries. Many smiles and they didn’t last long! Yummm. PLUS strawberries are GOOD for you, right?

Pretty Purple Party Decorating Ideas! Say THAT 3x.

What a FIND! I stumbled upon this fabulous little purple party on Pinterest! The balloons caught my eye immediately. Now if you are going to use balloons to decorate your party, this is the way to do it. Hats off to Shannon over at 8footSIX.

I love that this intimate party has limited seating with colorful decorations that POP! (no pun intended) Even though it is a small party, the decorations scream *LET’S CELEBRATE!* Perfect for a bridal shower, birthday party, luncheon, and more.

Now go celebrate something!!! AND if you think you threw a fancy party, send your professional (or almost) photos to me to feature on my blog.
