A Rehearsal Dinner Inspired Table at Brick & Laurel

I recently teamed up with a really amazing group of vendors to create a rehearsal dinner inspired table.  It’s so often that so much focus is placed on the actual wedding that the rehearsal dinner becomes an afterthought.  From my own experience, the rehearsal dinner was one of the best parts of my wedding weekend.  It was intimate with the ones I love and more low key, but still a great party.

One of the main problems with the rehearsal dinner is finding the right place to host it.  Restaurants can seem like a good idea but the feel of them is often cheesy or not the style we desire.  That’s one of the many reasons I fell in love with Brick & Laurel, an amazing rental space in San Diego.  It is the perfect size for a small party and has the best vibe of brick industrial walls that are just asking to be prettied up!  I think it’s the perfect space to host a rehearsal dinner or even a birthday party or shower!!

Lucky for me Sarah, owner of Catalina Neal, also owns Brick and Laurel, so I was able to utilizee her amazing floral skills as well.  She even offers that as part of a package when renting out the space, genius right?!  Our vision was a pretty Winter to Spring tablescape that was as welcoming as it was sophisticated.  The feel is light and airy with some coziness oozing off of the brick walls.  I added in a few of our other favorite vendors and the party was complete!

Keep scrolling to see more of these beautiful images the Dulcet Creative ladies took of our rehearsal dinner inspired table.  You can also see it on The Fashionable Hostess Blog today as well!

First let’s show off what the lovely Taryn from Twinkle & Toast created for us…  Even though the wedding is the main event, that doesn’t mean the rehearsal dinner doesn’t deserve it’s time to shine!  She deserves a pretty invite too, and this one is just so good with all that combo of amazing colors!

That gorgeous combination of dark and light colors was the ideal contrast for our Winter to Spring inspiration.  I carried it over to the beautiful table.  It’s elegant but warm and inviting at once.  The perfect place to celebrate something so important but still having that relaxed vibe letting the actual wedding shine.

I especially love the softness of the vintage lace tablecloth compared to the industrial metal chairs and brick walls.  And can we take a second to talk about that greenery install Catalina Neal created?!  It really makes it feel like Spring is in the air!

The gold wire chairs are from Pow Wow Design Studio, can I have those in my home please?!

All of the gorgeous tabletop items are from my girl Farra at Hostess Haven.  She is always adding pretty pieces to her collection, and these new grey ceramic plates are brand spanking new!  Aren’t they the prettiest shade?!  They would make just about any table and color scheme look amazing!  And those pretty place cards are done by the talented Twinkle & Toast again!

Last but not least, I always love having One Hope Wine at any event I host and a rehearsal dinner would be no exception!  Their wines are so yummy and also give back to multiple charities which I of course love!

So much pretty in one place right?!  I love how this rehearsal dinner inspired table came to life.  Proof that the rehearsal dinner can be just as thought-out and gorgeous as the wedding, well almost ;)

Girly Galentine Playdate

You know we couldn’t let a holiday go by without throwing a par-tayyyyyyy!!!  Valentine’s Day deserves lots of love and that’s what this girly Galentine playdate is about!  I gathered up the ultimate girl squad for this shoot and the cuteness enthused.  The best part was that all of these girls had the best time together and it was so fun watching them play!

 The adorable clothing line Stella Phoenix is what inspired me to throw this little party.  I saw an image of their amazing collection and knew it would be the perfect attire for Valentine’s Day.  The pieces were even cuter in person, I swear!!  Being a mom to two boys this was my chance to go all out girly and I loved every second of it!

This party is also featured on 100LayerCakelet today!

All photos are by Dulcet Creative

Now are you ready for the ultimate girliest playdate you’ve ever seen??  Because I don’t know if you can handle the cuteness…  Let’s start with the amazing balloon install from Wild Child Party complimented by the beautiful flowers by Of the Flowers and the gorgeous rentals from 6th and Detroit…  Giving me all the Valentine’s feels…

Meghann Miniello created the sweetest invite that would make any heart flutter… I carried on the cute acrylic heart theme to the table as well.  Playing with all of this pink was way too fun!!  We threw floral confetti by The Confetti Bar around and the girls had the best time doing it!

The table had a mix of wooden plates from The Little Market, amazing paper tabletop goods from Wild Child Party, and the pop of acrylic pieces from Meghann Miniello.

I layered bright pink Gunn & Swain blankets and pillows with some white mud cloth Boho Pillows

Now for the cutest girl squad you have ever seen… I seriously want to be them when I grow up!  These girls have more sass and more confidence than most adults I know!  We could all learn from their girl power!

Iris & Zooey

Perry & Edie

Rylie & Lucca

And of course this cutie, Avalon

I think I was just more in awe of how adorable these girls were and how much fun they had together.  Aren’t our girl friendships the best?!  And you can see how evident that is at even this young age!  Makes me so grateful to be a girl and get to share this love with my fellow ladies!!

Cute XOXO balloons from North Star Balloons

Like we said, Stella Phoenix is what really inspired the shoot with their adorable collection, but our buddies at Little Style Collective styled the girls up right!  They threw in some fun sunnies, jewelry, bags and shoes that completed each little gal’s get up.  We also had fun with some ban.do tumblers, party straws and sunnies too!

There’s that amazing acrylic magic from Meghann Miniello – All the Heart Eyes!!

The girls got spoiled with the sweetest cookies from Parchment.  We love everything she creates because she puts so much detail into each delicious cookie!

All I know is these girls were made to party… They had so much fun sitting around acting like grown ups, whilst stuffing their faces, haha!  My kind of girls!!!

So we loved this peacock chair from 6th and Detroit so much, along with the insanely gorgeous floral garland Of the Flowers added to it we dubbed it the Princess Chair!  Each girl got to sit in the chair and do their own Princess pose… I can’t make this stuff up people… Please god, let me talk my husband into having a girl!!!  I was the biggest tomboy ever growing up but I love seeing this stuff!!

Avalon marches to the beat of her own drum!  And since she was the littlest at the shoot, she wanted the littlest chair… And trust me, you don’t want to argue with this one!

Here’s just a bunch more photos because, well, the cuteness…  The adorable princess star wands are a new addition to Gunn & Swain’s site and they’re only $10 a pop!  Trust me, big hit!!

And that’s a wrap!  I’ll seriously be dreaming about living in this pink girly wonderland the rest of the day!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!!

A Tropical New Years Eve with Lulu & Georgia

One of the most anticipated holidays of the year is upon us…  Just two more days till New Years Eve!!!  This is THE holiday for getting the party started, and I did just that!  Usually when you think of New Years Eve you think of the typical black, gold, silver, white color scheme.  Well, I wanted to try something different this year, and since the tropical trend has been such a continuous favorite, that is right where my mind went.  So this year we decided on a tropical New Years Eve with Lulu & Georgia, and it turned out pretty amazing!

If you missed our New Year Brunch with Lulu & Georgia earlier this week be sure to check it out!  This tropical affair is all about fun colors and the essentials for the perfect celebration.  Keep scrolling to see the gorgeous photos from Heather Kincaid and be sure to head over to Style Me Pretty Living for even more fun!

I always have to start with a gorgeous invite, and who else but my girl Taryn from Twinkle & Toast.  Palm leaves and pink, sort of the perfect combination, am I right?!  She created all of the paper goods for this shoot.  And you’ll see that amazing custom confetti from The Confetti Bar and cutest cocktail stirrers from The Roc Shop through-out this shoot!

Everything used for this shoot from the furniture to the tabletop is from Lulu & Georgia!  So you can literally recreate this yourself!  These tropical palm leaf plates were the perfect addition to the table and really make it pop!  And I fell in love with the super tropical floral arrangement from the Bloom Babes!

It’s New Years Eve so you’ve gotta throw some confetti around!!

One of the most important spots on New Years Eve has gotta be the bar cart!!  The Zelia Bar Cart from Lulu & Georgia is so classic and modern, it will fit perfectly in any home!  Just add some pretty glassware and our favorite sparkly One Hope Champagne bottles!

Let’s Get Bubbly!!!

Our gorgeous models all wearing the cutest outfits from Show Me Your Mumu and hair and makeup by Fiore Beauty.  These cuties are from left to right… Jen Hawkins, Hannah Lord, Janel Benson, Abby Sterling and Hannah Hagler.

Cheers Ladies!!!

How cute are these girls and how great do they look in their outfits?!

Cheers and have a safe New Year!!!

New Years Brunch with Lulu & Georgia

Now that Christmas is officially over there’s only one way to deal with our heartache…. Start making New Years plans!!!!  That’s right, 2017 is coming up and we’ve got you covered this week with tons of inspiration!!  Starting with this amazing New Years Brunch with Lulu & Georgia.  I was lucky enough to style and design the first birthday party of Vivian Mae, the daughter of Lulu & Georgia CEO Sara Brenner earlier this year.  I loved working with Sara so much I had to reach out to see if she would be up for some fun styled shoots.  Lucky for me, she was!

The idea of a New Years Brunch with my girlfriends just makes me smile!  After a night out of debauchery, spending the day lounging with your gal pals drinking mimosas sounds like heaven!  I had the best team of vendors on this one and I’m thrilled to have it featured on Glitter Guide today!  Keep scrolling to see all of the pretty details and get inspired to host a fab New Years brunch of your own!!  You’re gonna flip over all of the amazing Lulu & Georgia goodies!!

What pieces and details brought this party to life? 

 I have been a huge fan of the Elodie collection from Lulu & Georgia and Glitter Guide since the minute I saw it.  I love the mix of colors and print and thought it would be the perfect inspiration for this gathering at home!  I mean, who wouldn’t love to have that rug in their home?!  All of the vendors involved had so much fun creating pieces inspired by the Elodie, I especially love the invite Twinkle & Toast created that used the print and colors perfectly!

We love the concept of a New Year’s Day brunch! What inspired this type of holiday celebration?

I love it too!  NYE is always an amazing celebration but I like to keep the party going and love the idea of having a girls slumber party with fun festivities to continue the next morning!  Plus, we all could use a little hair of the dog the day after such a fun filled cocktail infused night out :)  And lastly, you want to start the new year off right with close friends and fun times, so this is just how you do that!

How gorgeous are the flowers by Bloom Babes?!  They go with the whole color scheme so well and they are exactly what you want to see to kick off a new year!

Tell us about the menu! 

I love brunch foods, to me that’s the best meal of the day!  So for the menu I had to have something delicious but pretty as well!  There is an array of sweet and salty, which is also important to appease everyone’s taste buds.  Plus, some good hang over options for the ladies who had a little too much fun the night before

Custom menus, resolution cards, and really rad copper place cards by Twinkle & Toast.  Also, loving the custom cocktail stirrers from The Roc Shop!

What are three things every holiday party has to have? 

Good food, yummy cocktails and festive friends!

How did you settle on that pretty pink color palette for the party? 

I wanted something different for this NY celebration.  New Years tends to be all about black, gold and white but I wanted something different!  I love the idea of having a girls get together with these pretty hues and that soft pink really stole my heart!  The pretty pink Lulu & Georgia settee played off the colors of the Elodie rug so well and I just love the way it all turned out!

Now let’s get our models in here, who really know how to party!!  Especially when some One Hope champs is involved!  Bottoms up!

Best brunch playlist: go!

I’m really feeling the new Bruno Mars album and gotta have some Bieber!!

All of our models are keeping cozy in Show Me Your Mumu and looking pretty thanks to Fiore Beauty, and genetics of course ;)

Do you have any stress-free party-planning tips to share? 

Do as much as you can the day before… Pre prep food, set up your home for everything you can, all of that tedious stuff.  The less you have to do the day of the more you can enjoy yourself and have fun!  Which is what planning and throwing an event is all about.

What are your New Year resolution for 2017? 

Something I want to focus on is more time on myself, whether it’s working out, resting, reading more books.  Just finding time for me and taking care of myself!

Hope you enjoyed this New Years Brunch with Lulu & Georgia as much as we did!!  Now go out and plan that brunch and make it a dreamy affair like this one!

Beijos Friendsgiving

Fact of the matter is people that Thanksgiving is in a week!!  What are you all doing??  Whether you are going to someones home or hosting it we have some fun inspiration for you today. Which by the way is also featured on Inspired by This blog today too!! The collaborators on this one were amazing too!!  We always work with the best, most talented people and for that we are so Grateful!! The inspiration for this almost came out anti traditional when you see the colors, but it wasn’t on purpose. It came out just perfect for a feminine and playful friendsgiving. We are just always trying to bring in some new fresh ideas and looks for y’all!!  Hope you like…

All Photos by the lovely Megan Welker

We shot in the beautiful Woodshed Venue down in Vista.  This place is so stunning for events.

We loved this set of table and chairs, along with the side table dessert cart all by Witty Rentals.  The small circular table was fun and different with the wood top and brass bottom, which was perfect for the intimate setting we were trying to pull off.  And we had to add in these modern chairs with the white and wood mix.  It had the right fun and funky mix we were going for.

Now for these table details…first of all these flowers were kind of insane.  When we work with the bloom babes we are pretty much in awe of the beautiful creations they bring to the table every time!! The soft whites and pinks mixed with the foliage is just perfection!! And how cute are these little persimmons??

Next up is the the table top by our favorite store in the world Target!!  We went with the lighter charger adding some texture with the jute mixed in with some gold stitching in there making it fun and fancy.  A simple white plate is next, with a textured but muted yellow plate on top.  Accented of course with some gold flatware and a light pinky/orange napkin. Oh and we can’t forget the gold tumbler, we loved that little guy!!

Then we had Taryn of Twinkle and Toast pull off something really pretty. We went with a black to fully stand out on this table.  The traditional place cards and the fun little cards stating what we are thankful for off to the side of the plate.
