Happy New Year Brooklyn Bride fans! Here we are with a glamorous table for you to see. Okay, Okay – I know this has frilly pink flowers (but at least no poofy dress!). Forgive me, I just can’t resist peonies. We kept it simple with low clusters of blooms and twinkly gold votive candles. A cheap store bought house number from Home Depot was easily gold leafed for a snazzy table number. Sprinkle some sequins, throw down tulle and ribbons for a runner and you are done. Cheers! – Denise

You guys might remember Alicia and her husband Adam from their real wedding feature here a few months ago. Well Alicia emailed me with this shoot she styled with her hubby at their store Bows and Arrows, and I had to show you all!
This party is inspired by sweet treats that are fun to eat and to look at! eye candy all around! On the plate are a few pink flavorful favorites including; cotton candy, Mexican pastries, sno balls and strawberry sugar wafers. Adding to the scrumptious time are clusters of fluffy flower arrangements of pink and yellow. Flowers include: peony, dusty miller, ranunculus, astilbe, dahlias, roses, hydrangea and billy balls! A few vintage touches are the milk glass for the arrangements, vintage chanel shoes, and a 1920’s craftsman style house as the setting. Handmade goodies include the felt pennants, pink veil, pompoms, table coverings and bandanna.

OK, so I’m not totally a pink person, but I do make an exception for the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. When I got my issue of the latest Martha Stewart Weddings (arriving on stands Monday!), I caught my breath a little after opening this spread, with florals by Matthew Robbins. Check out the full gallery here, and if you ever have a chance, go to BBG in April when the blossoms are fully bloomed and sit under the trees, its amazing! [secret tip: if you shake the tree a little, it will be like its raining pink petals!]

This latest addition to MaeMae’s 2010 wedding collection , Gilly, is a stunner…I like how the designer, Megan, comes up with a fictional story behind her designs.
“Gilly spotted Cian at an old fashioned candy shoppe where she was buying jelly peach rings before boarding a train home. She had the peach rings at the shoppe at the same everyday for five months before Cian finally took her on a date to an orchard where they were married the following year.”
