Tin Can Treats Celebrations

I know vintage campers are everywhere these days, but I’m thinking there’s a reason for that. There is something so blissfully nostalgic about an old camper. It sings of long summer days, childhood, creamsicles melting in the heat of July, and days when our biggest worries were whether to go with the purple or the blue crayon. (Personally, I always went pink.) Tin Can Treats is a Nashville company renting out their vintage camper, a 1965 Shasta Airflyte named Doris, for birthday parties, weddings and celebrations of all shapes and sizes. To me, it looks like a little piece of heaven.

Party Palette: Beach Chic

With spring having finally decided to stick around and summer close on her heels, you’re going to notice things getting increasingly beachy around here. I grew up on the water and I swear I can’t stay away, especially in the warmer months. By summer you’ll find me on a boat or a beach or a lakefront every chance I get. These colors are the colors my dreams are made of – watery hues that whisk you away.

Birthday Candle Party Invitations

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the very best ones of all. Take these first birthday party invitations for instance. Letterpress printed and paired with a single birthday candle and fabulous packaging, they’re about as charming as they get. Created by Chelsea of Sugar Paper for her son Owen’s first birthday celebration, these invitations are a new favorite.

A Beachy Bachelorette Party

I loved this beach bachelorette party the instant I saw it. In fact, I may have clapped on sight. It’s so many of the things I personally love in life. The waterfront, sea breezes, my best girlfriends, icy cocktails served up with paper straws, and easy indie-inspired style. In a word, it’s gorgeous. For those of you planning bachelorette parties this summer (or looking for inspiration to pass along to your bridesmaids), look no further. A picnic dinner, pretty cocktails and good company are all you need. Beautiful scenery is just the icing on the cake.

Japanese Inspired Spring Wedding Shoot

The Inspired Creations Contest is winding down this week, but it wouldn’t be complete without this pretty Japanese-inspired entry from Fabulously Wed and Ashleigh Taylor Photography. Using an unexpected color palette of pink, purple and gold paired with sweet Asian details, the team created a small sweets table with mini take-out containers as a pack-your-own favor station. Perfect for a spring wedding, purple iris, pink tulips and soft pink gerbera daisies are simply lovely while a backdrop of shimmering origami cranes pays homage to Japan.
