‘Tis the season for bridal showers aplenty, which probably in part explains why I was so excited to hear from Melissa at Cacao Sweets and Treats in Chicago, sharing this gorgeous glam black floral inspired wedding shoot. Designed around the ever popular dessert and cake buffet, Melissa played off of a few of my favorite design elements when creating this beautiful spread – gold, black, floral, stripes and loads of glamorous little details.

I’m such a fan of the ladies from CAKE. and Cakewalk Baking and their partner in crime, photographer Sherry Heck. They always create such beautifully considered parties and celebrations and this pretty little vision for a bridal shower they’re sharing today is no exception. It’s bright and punchy in crisp shades of grass green, sunshine yellow and bright white. Loaded with daisies, a spray of paper fans and a cheeky ‘He loves me’ theme, it’s absolutely brilliant for a spring bridal shower. I love everything about …

The team at Marry …
