Real wedding: Laura + Jordan

20130923-LauraJordon-161_1

What better way to do a wedding than with a pink dress and a simple City Hall ceremony?  Top it off with a rooftop dinner at the NoMad Hotel with friends and family (who came all the way from Australia no less!), and its pretty perfect to me.

Animal menagerie tablescape

animal menagerie shoot with kate spade new york

When I was approached to put together a shoot using kate spade new york products, I jumped at the chance, particularly because I’ve been obsessed with the Castle Peak plate collection ever since I laid eyes on it.  Those facets get me every time!  But when paired with the whimsy of their Woodland collection, it definitely makes this tablescape a fun and quirky change from the ordinary.  I mean, seriously, how can you resist an owl with a floral headpiece to rival that of Marie Antoinette??  Add in some cute salt and pepper shakers, figurines, and even an elephant piggy bank, and you’ve got a seriously adorable table.

Thanks to the fabulous team of Brittany from Brrch Floral and the fabulous Jainé from Brklyn View Photography, this shoot is the perfect inspiration for a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or even wedding!

How can you resist this little owl‘s face?  When you add the taller version of this owl vase, they make quite the pair.

The subtle dotted pattern on these champagne flutes and the sleek Tomkins flatware really complement everything nicely, dont you think?  For drinks we just used some sparkling grapefruit juice with a blackberry…the light pink really pulls in the blush from the flowers.

Cool cake series: stripes

yellow stripe cake

Welcome back everyone, and welcome to any of the newly engaged brides out there!  Hope you all had a great break and got to relax a ton.  Me?  Not so much….you always have hopes to accomplish so much, and then all those plans fall to the wayside.  But oh well, such is life!

Thought we could start the week off bright with the latest in the cool cake series with this yellow striped stunner from Betsy at Nine Cakes.  I thought the imperfect stripes on these vases with the colorblocked yellow were a great translation to cake, and Betsy proved me right again!  Gotta love that little addition of asymmetry…it would be great for a laid-back, colorful wedding!
