Fall Harvest Brunch on City Cradle Design

Good morning, everyone! I wanted to take a moment today to share with you the fun little fall harvest brunch design I recently created. You can check out full details over at City Cradle Design where myself and four other bloggers were challenged to create a fall harvest design to inspire all of your fall parties and weddings. (I have loved seeing what everyone else came up with and I know you will, too!) Please pop over and check out all of the designs and I would love love love if you felt so inclined as to leave a comment on my design and support me in this fun design challenge. Reader response will be taken into consideration when determining the reader’s choice award so please leave a little love!

Pizza Party Inspiration from Sunday Suppers

I know I’m not the only one who finds everything Sunday Suppers does endlessly inspiring. I have been rather impatiently waiting for over a year now for my New York City travel schedule to coincide with a class and I have fingers crossed it happens soon. (Honestly, for as often as I’m in New York, it has to work out sometime, right?) In the meantime, I am loving this recent pizza party class they offered. This is not your elementary school pizza party! This is sophisticated, casual elegance at its best and utter perfection for a rehearsal dinner or a small, intimate wedding celebration.

Noah’s Train Theme Birthday Party

The best days for me are the days I get to feature a great party sent to me by a reader. With that said, today is a great day because Abby sent over photos of her son Noah’s train themed third birthday party that I just couldn’t wait to share with you. I see a lot of birthday parties in bold, vibrant colors so I kind of love that Abby chose muted shades and pastels when planning Noah’s party. It still says ‘little boy’ to me without giving off a superhero vibe. Abby created the train cake topper using a tutorial from Cake Journal and I love that she opted to celebrate with a small family party loaded with sweet details like striped straws and little flags on the  tea sandwiches, making Noah’s birthday perfectly festive and fun for a little boy turning three.

Travel Inspired Dessert Buffet

As soon as I spied this incredibly fun travel inspired dessert buffet by Sweets Indeed on Amy Atlas Events I tucked it away in my favorites. I stumbled upon it again over the weekend and couldn’t resist sharing it with you. I love all of the vintage map details and the hot air balloons are too cute for words. This would be as equally perfect for a great kids party as it would be for a travel inspired wedding celebration for the globetrotting duo. Paper pinwheels made from old maps, a great homemade cake and little cream pies topped with paper hearts are festive and sweet, making this one of my absolute favorite dessert buffets to date.

Loving Wedding Bouquets

Without question gorgeous flowers are one of my favorite design details for weddings and celebrations. It’s such a great way to introduce color, texture and personality, which is why I am loving wedding bouquets right now. From the bold and colorful to the classic and traditional, a beautiful wedding bouquet never goes out of style.
