A Case of Honeycomb Envy

Brace yourself, Petticoat Nation, because what I’m about to tell you might come as a shock.  Today’s feature of a honeycomb themed baby shower is the most beautiful baby shower I’ve ever seen.  Nay!  It’s the most beautiful baby shower of all time!  Yes, I understand the implications of such an overarching and definite statement… it’s all down hill from here.  But when you feast your eyes on this fete, you’ll see what I mean.  The honeycomb theme is so gorgeously orchestrated in an elegant (and non-kitschy) way, that it almost makes me angry – honeycomb cakes, honey jar favors, …

Feeding the Soul

Last December, the eco-friendly grocery chain Fresh & Easy tasked one of their members, Stephanie, to throw a holiday party for all their employees.  Boy oh boy, was this one a stunner!  With a palette of black, white, and gold, the hostess sought to marry the formal with the hometown.  And if you ask us, she couldn’t have done a more beautiful job.  Here’s what Stephanie had to say about the inspiration behind this gorgeous fete: After having read the book Bread & Wine earlier, my passion and perspective for my time in the kitchen and around my table was renewed. …

Tangled Birthday Party

If you grew up with long golden locks, then you probably fancied yourself a Rapunzel at some point or another.  You know, throwing your endless tresses out the tower window so the Prince could come save you.  Personally, I don’t know what that feels like. I grew up with short, brown hair and had a penchant for fantasizing that I was Indiana Jones in search of the Holy Grail (for those of you born after 1990, put it in your Netflix queue… Harrison was a Grade A hottie, you’ll thank me later).  Anyway, back to Rapunzel.  If you were one …

The Holiday Table

Who said the holiday table could only be comprised of a bright red and green palette?  Break from the yuletide mold and add a unique festivity to your party.  As gorgeously demonstrated by this lovely group of Georgian vendors, the holiday table can be as stylish as the days are cold.  With rustic ornaments and a beautifully simplistic design, this is one fete that will leave your guests with cheer in their hearts.     Photography:  ZoomWorks Photography Event Design:  Natalie Bradley Events Floral Design:  European Floral Design Props:  Oconee Events Venue:  The Georgia Club

Catching Fire

Prepare yourself as I totally geek out over today’s deliciously styled wedding shoot!  We’ve got Katniss.  We’ve got Peeta.  We’ve got the Capital.  That’s right, we have a Hunger Games wedding!  Aaaah!  I apologize, the 13-year-old in me just had a heart attack.  Off the page and into a world of ridiculously talented vendors, this Catching Fire themed wedding is the stuff that sci-fi, post-apocalyptic dreams are made of!  Photographer David Lilly breaks down all the details and the inspiration behind the day: This styled shoot was based on the hit novel and movie series, The Hunger Games Trilogy.  Instead of …

The Other Side

Did you know that Halloween originated in Ireland?  Yup, it’s true!  Well it seems that this lovely group of wedding vendors certainly knew that little factual tidbit.  Styling this spooktacular event after a traditional Celtic autumn tradition, event planner Krystle Peskie explains the significance behind the gorgeous design: Samhain (pronounced Sow-in) is one of the harvest festivals in the Celtic tradition.  It is considered the day that the veil between the worlds is the thinnest.  It is also the “day between the years” since they considered October 30th as the last day of the year and November 1st as the …

The Living meet the Dead

Happy Halloween, boys and ghouls!  Today we have some holiday inspired weddings that are so fabulous, you’ll be dying for an invitation.  Our first event’s creepy beauty will send you on a quest through the woods in search of it!  Here’s what event designer Laura Taylor of Gathered Events had to say about the eery setting: In the gorgeous woods behind the historic Highland Manor, we created this Halloween-styled scene pulling inspiration from antique gothic decor and Tim Burton.  We wanted to create a scene that was lush and beautiful, with a creepy twist.  Antique vessels were filled with gorgeous …
