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.
Last week, I was unexpectedly quiet on the blog…work projects and regular ol’ life stuff filled up the time. But, that’s all squared away – for now – and I’m back with a new party picks board for all of you who are tossing around ideas for little shindigs here and there.
It’s been seriously warm lately and the weather has me in a citrus-y frame of mind. Pair that with this year’s Pantone color of the year and I’m all for some tangerine tango love! So here’s a rather large board of pickin’s…from do it yourself fun times to bits that you can pick up on the net.
Good morning…good morning! I hope that everyone enjoyed their weekend with the bunnies and eggs!
Now, let’s jump right in and get back to work with some picks for a Watercolor themed shindig…and – guess what – a lot of it is DIY…from watercolor streamers to the place card flags and favor tags! So go on and have some fun with a few of these projects!
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?!
