Halloween Sweets and Treats

There are no tricks about these sweet displays, just treats! A simple candy table will add that extra special touch to your Halloween party. I actually think it's should be a staple at any event! :-) Can you resist a display that looks like this? Martha Stewart makes it look so incredibly effortless! All you'll need are a couple of pretty jars and color coordinated candy, right? If you haven't done so already, try one out, they are always a hit!

Vintage Inspired Bridal Shower

I'm loving all the details of this chic bridal shower. The guest of honor's married name will be Lemon, so her bridesmaids used lemons throughout the shower.
The food and drinks were all homemade by the bride’s best friend and the other bridesmaids,even the jam favors! And they sure did an amazing job! Check it our for yourselves.

Featured Fête: Something Blue Bridal Shower

In about 3 weeks I'll be creating a desert/candy display for the Blooming Studios Bridal Event. I can't wait! I'm planning on creating Tiffany Blue display, but didn't really decide yet, I'm still brainstorming. Luckily I received a dose of inspiration right in time. This weekend a lovely reader, Madonna sent over pictures of a bridal shower she recently hosted. These gorgeous photos are certainly inspiring, see for yourself.
How cute is this cake?

Love personalized stationary to add that special touch.

Branches gets me every single time.. cute wishing tree!

Thanks for sharing Madonna!

Birds + Bees + Baby-The Sweets!

I'm back with Sweets! LOTS of them!

So, I had the cake designed to reflect the theme, and since we loved the invitation, I thought it would be cute to worked play off of it. So here's the invitation again..

And here's the cake! This is what the Birds and Bees gave us! And it was mighty tasty.

You guys should know I love swizzle sticks.Right? Well if you are new to my blog. I Love 'EM! So I just had to incorporate them!

The party favor..Sweeten your tea with a Honey Bee Swizzle sticks!

And even more sweets...The Sweets Table!

The twig runner added extra flair to the asthetic of the table.

The honey sticks were gone in the blink of an eye! Thanks for the honey suggestions!

Birds + Bees = Baby!

A few weeks ago we welcomed (proud to say) my very first God son! I'm so honored and excited to be name the godmother of my cousin's baby boy. Now you know.. I had to style and hosted his baby shower, right. I was stung by the nesting and bee inspiration all around the web. I was also feelin' terrariums so I had to include them. I call this style organic whimsy. :-). I have TONS of pics to share, and still going through them. Its difficult picking from a million and one photos. So I'll start with some of the decor details. I started out with this oh so cute invitation! I had a vision of a cartoon-esque bird + bee = a baby, and the designer brought it to life! She hit the nail on the head I tell ya!
I love the way the blue honeycomb background turned out.

We welcomed guests with a signature drink and pacifier necklace. They were forbidden to say the word baby or the guest of honor's name. If anyone was caught saying either of the two, their necklace would be taken away. It's a spin off the clothes pin baby shower game.

Signature Drink-A Beehive dispenser held the non alcoholic Honey Lemon Spritzer I whipped up

You know I love to "dress my drinks" right.... Teeny Tiny pacifiers embellished the drinking straws, along with blue sugar rimmed glasses.

I like to create an area for the guest of honor to open gifts

Gift Bags for shower game winners

Ok so, you know how there are always those few folks that come early to the party ( when you are still getting ready). Well these were for them! Gummy Worms!

Psst.. remember the mini chalkboards to wanted? Didn't have time to scour.. made these from paper!

I love me some double duty.. sign doubled as a pick.
The centerpiece.. Terrariums! I wanted to create terrariuns.. organic with a touch of baby whimsy.. what do you think?

I have many more pics to share. I'll be creating a Facebook album with more soon. But I'll be back soon with the favors and oh course a sweets & treats table. Oh and the cake!
