Wedding Candy Bars!


This trend has been around long enough that now I don't really consider it trendy. And I don't care how young or old they are, guests faces just light up when they see one of our candy bar displays! If you have a sweet tooth, love Willy Wonka or are just looking for a way to keep the party fresh and fun, then you should seriously consider having a candy bar at your next celebration.

Winter White Tablescape

I love a winter wedding! There are some design elements that only work this time of year. Faux fur table linens and chairs for example! How glamorous are they?! I rented the chair back covers and linens for this table from Wildflower Linens in Los Angeles. The linen overlay also has gorgeous bead work sewn on to it. Truly divine!

When temperatures drop, everything begins to glisten and that's just what's happened on this table too! The silver urn centerpiece is overflowing with glittery garland and faux snow filled hanging votives. Even our table signs, menus and placecards have a little sparkle! The white tulips peeking through the snow amidst the bare branches are so cheerful and a reminder that Spring is on its way.

Another of my favorite elements of this table is the deliciously decadent treats waiting for each guest. By their place cards, guest find these tiny, individual wedding cakes covered in coconut to echo the freshly fallen snow outside. Yum!

Quite the winter wonderland!

Pocket Ceremony Programs


This pocket style ceremony program was a design that I created for a wonderful couple named Kirsten & Jonathan.  These programs were especially lovely because they were two-toned. One side was pink and the other side was green. So fresh! 
Best of all, they are an easy do-it-yourself project. Here's what you'll need:
For the pocket:
1 piece translucent paper cut to 5 1/2" x 11"
1 pair of scissors that have a decorative edge
Ribbon – recommend 1" size
exacto knife
double stick tape
For the program:
1 piece pale pink paper cut to 6 1/2" x 6 1/2"
1 piece pale green paper cut to 6 1/2" x 6 1/2"
Pocket Instructions:
First, fold the paper in half so that it is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" square. Unfold and on crease line, use the exacto knife to cut a 1 1/4" slit for the ribbon. Refold paper and place a piece of double stick tape on each folded edge to seal and create a pocket. Trim open edge of pocket with decorative edged scissors.
Program Instructions:
Format and print your program details on each page of the paper.  Once your programs are printed, use double stick tape to attach the two sheets to each other to form one page.
Putting it all together:
Thread ribbon through pocket and around chair back. Place program inside pocket. Voila! A beautiful ceremony program that won't blow away in the wind.
Happy Crafting!
