Over the Rainbow

There seems to be some sort of unspoken competition going on between parents now-a-days.  From fairy extravaganzas to penguin wonderlands, they’re not pulling any punches when it comes to their children’s birthday parties.  And man, oh man is this competition fabulous!  Everyday it seems like the blog receives another fantastic party to rival all others… the creativity is endless.  Today’s theme is no different as we travel through the sky to find what lies beyond the clouds.  Here’s what photographer Renee Marie had to say about this feat of technicolor magic: This party is near and dear to my heart …

Beer, Boots, & BBQ

Nothing like a good ol’ BBQ to celebrate your coming nuptials!  Soon-to-be husband and wife, Courtney and Greg, decided to celebrate their rehearsal dinner is Texas style.  Their theme?  Beer, Boots, and BBQ!  With burlap accents, yummy meats, and an ice cream sundae bar, this is one rehearsal dinner we wouldn’t want to miss!           Photography:  Chanterelle Photography Catering:  The Salt Lick & Terra Cotta Catering Floral Design:  Hall’s Opelika Venue:  Auburn University Ag Heritage Park

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 …
