take me away

20 Feb

I want to share my all time favorite dessert table that we have created. It was inspired by vintage post cards and the soft Parisian colors of mint, blush, and cream. There is something so soft and romantic about those colors and I wanted to pair them with equally delicate desserts such as Macaroons, and petite fours, and chocolate dipped marshmallow puffs. These gorgeous photos were taken by Procopio Photography and the wonderful labels and graphics were designed by Mary Coppola Design . Enjoy!

On these chilly days I love putting on a scarf or pashmina and my personal favorite in my closet are my monogrammed ones that add a touch of personalization to my outfit. (and not to mention go back to my southern roots where EVERYTHING is monogrammed!) So I wanted to share these pretty options for bridesmaids gifts for your ladies in waiting. Make sure to check out the other great items in The Pink Paisley etsy shop!

Stock the Bar

7 Jan

The bar  is typically somewhere that guests frequent a lot during your wedding, and yet it tends to go unnoticed in the planning stages. Here are a few great options to spruce up your wedding watering hole.

personalized drink buckets are a great option to store iced wine, beer to go, or water before the ceremony.

Vintage bath tubs, old canoes, or a wheel barrow are great for “drinks on the go”. Store just about anything in them, but make sure to have a small bucket near by for guests to put drink tops after popping their favorite beverage.

Never be afraid of signage! Hanging a unique Bar sign or banner behind the bar draws focus in just the right way to a really awesome setup.

Have a bar within a bar. Setting up a Brandy or Whiskey Bar is the perfect way to pay tribute to your favorite drink. When setting up a brandy bar make sure to bring it special brandy glasses, a few of your favorite options and signage to describe what guests are drinking.

Renting specialty bar furniture can transform a space into a glamorous and unique atmosphere. Custom furniture can be created by the best vendors in the area such as Amaryllis, or brought in by Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

Small details in Coasters and stir sticks are easy finds and tie back into the overall theme. Make sure to keep them personal and fun so guests are drawn to use them.

Collect vintage and glass decorative bar bottles to hold your liquors instead of boring containers they are purchased in. Have the bartender keep them up on the top of the bar for guests to admire.

If your budget allows, add in flowers and props to the ends of the bar. It helps to soften the space and it is a small touch that goes a long way.

Give take home champagne favors to guests that they can pickup adjacent to the bar. These are not only a crowd pleaser but look glamorous staged together with ribbon bows and oversized tags.

My personal and always favorite favor is a really bad ass koozie. I have a collection that is quite ridiculous and I think it’s the perfect gift to the beer drinkers at your wedding.
