Graphic + Modern Wedding Inspiration

Inspired by the graphic, black and white Missoni for Target bike coveted by so many, event designer Jessica Herberger of Experience Events designed this chic tablescape. Jess imagined a stylish, casual couple hopping onto their bike and zipping off to city hall to get married. What follows is a little celebration with decor using simple every day items with the addition of sweet, newspaper-inspired details. I love the newspaper chandelier and funky chevron stationery, with each guest receiving a newspaper wrapped in chevron paper to remember the day for years to come. There’s just something about sweet, casual wedding celebrations that I adore.

A Shabby Chic First Birthday Party

I was so excited to have the lovely Jenny Haas share her niece Ada’s first birthday party. Jenny’s sister pulled together all of the pretty shabby chic details, from the vintage-inspired fabric hoops along the wall to the beautiful cluster of mini cakes. I love the simple white roses tucked in old milk bottles and the strings of white lights criss crossing the room. Everything about this party is so pretty and feminine, it’s the perfect way to say happy birthday to a sweet baby girl.

Party Palette: Rust + Blush

I’m loving this soft and pretty color palette for the fall harvest season. It’s a touch unexpected, but still definitely says “autumn” to me. Of course, I’m still loving on all shades of peach, apricot and pink these days, but I love the addition here of a bit of fresh green and a darker rust color. I actually try to challenge myself to come up with palette that don’t use any peaches or pinks, but this one kind of found me. Isn’t it pretty?

Venetian Inspired Jewelry from Amy Wing Designs

Right now I’m loving the latest collection by Amy Wing Designs. Inspired by the ironwork of Venice, Amy designed a collection that plays off the concepts of light, dark, shape and form. Each piece was created in sterling silver which was cast, hammered and then antiqued to give a dark, rich color that I absolutely love. Check out the lookbook for the entire collection, showcased in a beautiful photo shoot captured by Sara Gray and styled by Billede Design. Anyone else feel up for a trip to Italy after this?

Trick or Treat!

Just popping in quick to wish everyone a happy and festive Halloween! Have a great time trick or treating and handing out candy – I can never get enough of cute little ghosts and goblins on the hunt for some Halloween sweets. Until then, I’m revisiting this impossibly chic Halloween wedding featured last year – it’s still one of my all-time favorite weddings! Happy Halloween!
