Real Wedding: Areum and Jon

31 Dec

We were lucky to have Areum and Jon’s wedding at the Carnegie Institute published on District Weddings  earlier in December. I wanted to share it in full for our readers and show off the great subtle details we added in to establish a sweet Ombre theme. They wanted to keep the wedding romantic, soft, and use a color palette of blush to lavender in an ombre gradation.  They held their ceremony and reception both at Carnegie with Spilled Milk  catering with a 4 course menu of Short Ribs, cornbread and shrimp, and ending the night with a s’mores bar. Jon is a DJ with MyDeeJay  and so of course the music was a huge part of the night making sure that people kept to the dance floor! Enjoy!

pajamas and pancakes 1st birthday

12 Dec

Showing off a special first birthday that was featured on Onto Baby earlier this year. Instead of a more traditional theme we wanted to make fun with our idea to have everyone come over for brunch and do “Pancakes in Pajama’s”. We used shades of blue in ombre scale and a reoccurring set of shapes in banners and dots to keep things cohesive.  For the littlest guests they were given swag boxes full of games and treats to make sure everyone felt included when the birthday boy opened gifts. For the quintessential smash cake, a multi-tiered inside out cake was made which hysterically Jackson would not have anything to do with. This was so much fun to plan and I look forward to years of more birthday parties for this handsome fella. (I know! I’m biased!) Big thank you to Lisa Boggs Photography for these amazing photos!

Everyone is loving the ombre wedding trends this year, and Glorious Treats has posted a really simple DIY post about how to create your own Ombre Mini Cakes. I think these would be great wrapped in clear packaging and given away as favors, or even one presented to each guest for dessert instead of a large wedding cake. Enjoy and check out her tutorial!
