Hello-hello…it’s Wedding Wednesday and I’ve been in a DIY kind of mood. Rather than posting a bridal inspiration board that revolves around a color combination, this week I will share with you some of the bits that I’ve found around the web for favors that you can either completely or partially do yourself.
Personally, when it’s my turn to walk down the aisle…I will skip the standard favors of frames and salt-and-pepper shakers. I would rather give something people can enjoy…gastronomically speaking…than something that will most likely gather dust in some tucked away place. If you haven’t noticed with some of my posts…I love and adore food, especially sweet bits. So it won’t come as a surprise that a majority of the items are desserts.
A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by my friend, Sarah of Dreamers Joy Events and Design, to design an invitation and coordinating place card for a welcoming dinner being hosted by one of her clients. The concept – modern/fancy…the color palette – plum, gold, black and white. By the feed from her business page on Facebook, the event went off this past Saturday night as a rousing success and I am looking forward to seeing the photo coverage!
Inspired by the color palette, I decided to explore the interwebs and find pieces that I recommend for a plum-my dinner. What do you think? Do you have a favorite piece from the place setting?
Now…what would a dinner party be without some vittles!? So, here is a menu I put together…some I’ve actually served during intimate family dinners (the salmon fillet is a-maz-ing!)…others I’m just dying to try. Anyway, which one looks to be the most appetizing to you?!
If you start to follow along as I populate this blog, you will probably notice that I will be sticking to particular themes for specific days. For example, every Wednesday you’ll most likely find a post on something to do with the wedding industry – whether it be a bridal inspiration board, a featured wedding, some tips and tricks, a DIY tutorial, and – occasionally – a shameless plug for BrainFry via a ‘completed project’ post.
That said…here is a bridal inspiration board I put together based on one of my favorite color combinations – green, black and white….
