MInt & Peach is the perfect color combination for your late spring/ early summer wedding (or bridal shower or even baby nursery) because it is soft and romantic. You can incorporate the colors into a variety of styles, such as vintage garden or modern beach. Another great thing about this color combination is that you can incorporate both silver and gold finishes, since peach is warm and mint has cooler undertones.

Ditch the traditional buffet and have a food truck cater your wedding.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! I was so lucky to be able to spend Sunday doing what I love — Coordinating Weddings! All of the vendors I worked with this weekend were true professionals and I just cannot wait until I am able to show everyone the photos. The ceremony setting blew my mind and the popcorn bar I set up was a huge hit.
Well, the weather is getting so beautiful and I only have one thing on my mind…Sailing Away! I love cruising and the nautical theme is close to my heart (♥itb) so I decided to bring you an inspiration story for an All American Nautical Party. You can use this inspiration for a casual lobster bake with friends or for a preppy wedding by the sea shore. The most important thing to remember is to be inspired by the beautiful pictures but make the elements your own.
Nautical Flags in the coordinating color of your wedding party can be strung from the umbrellas to the table tops
A canvas bag with an anchor motif would be perfect for welcome baskets or party favors
"Two ships passing in the night" An adorable cake topper
Navy and Moss green elements would make a very classy setting for a cliffside wedding
Programs in the Nautical Flag of your new last name would be fun
A Red White and Blue dessert table is the piece de resistance at a summer time birthday party

Easter is this Sunday and I can’t believe how fast this year is flying by! This was always one of my favorite holidays because we would personalize our eggs, hide carrots for the Easter bunny and wear a fabulous new dress. My mother would hide a basket for me and my sister with the most amazing Mr. Sketch markers and a notebook with the most delicious carmel popcorn bunny. We would make spinach dip then go visit with my aunts and cousins.
This year I will coordinating a good friends wedding so it will definitely be a celebration! I have rounded up my favorite decor elements and tablescapes. Find even more Easter inspiration on Pintrest!
A basket full of gilded eggs is magical
My mother's spinach dip would be amazing in that bunny
Carrots that look like they were just pulled from the ground make the perfect centerpiece
Beautiful inspiration for an Easter party
Some my favorite party food is a large selection of salads. I love Italian style pasta salad, with roasted red peppers, olives, and basil pesto. A huge garden salad filled with veggies and a juicy, fresh fruit salad are delicious, healthy options. For refreshments, I love drinking white wine spritzers (so retro!). I mix a light white wine (sav blanc or pinot grigio) with some Diet Sprite and a splash of fruit juice. You can always freeze the juice and just throw a few cubes in your glass for fun.
What are your Easter traditions? How will you be celebrating this year?
The best bridal hair is soft and natural. If you normally wear your hair down, then wear it down in loose waves or pulled back on one side. You will feel most comfortable, meaning you will look most beautiful. If you normally wear your hair pulled back in a low ponytail, then a soft chignon with texture will look luxurious and modern. A jeweled comb or flower clip would easily work with both hairstyles and is easy to reposition during the night, if needed. It is a separate piece from the veil so you can still keep that bit of magic on during the reception.
Below are my favorite jeweled combs from various Etsy artists. Once you enter the website search for bridal hair, bridal combs, jewel combs and a massive selection will be at your finger tips.
Another option for a more organic look is a faux flower hair comb. They are soft and romantic, without worry of wilting as the night goes on. Plus, it makes a very special keepsake. I love the assortment at Amy’s Bridal Accessories. All of the hair combs are hand made with fine silk fabric, luxurious goose feathers and magical pieces of vintage lace. Their jewelry is spectacular as well.
