Fabulous Friday: Gray Weddings

I hope you are all having a fabulous week and enjoying this beautiful fall weather.  Today we are going to feature different ways that you can use the color gray in your wedding. It is a color often overlooked that we are going to shine the spotlight on! Gray is so versatile and can be used with so many other colors that I can’t imagine why it gets so little love.

Now isn’t that simply stunning?!  We have paired gray with purple on many occasions for a beautiful outcome.

As well as gray with yellow for an equally chic look.

Since Halloween is right around the corner I couldn’t leave out orange!

And for a playful combination match it up with a bright aqua.

If you combine it with pink it adds a touch of sophistication to the most romantic of days.

If pink isn’t your thing pair gray and red together for a thrilling combination sure to please the most daring of brides.

And if you want to stick with all neutral colors gray is a great way to add some excitement and style to your event.  Just take a look at these two beauties.

I hope you found some inspiration in this much overlooked color. I know I had fun while pairing these color combos! Have a great weekend! We will not have a post next week. The Boss and I are headed on an adventure!

Fabulous Friday: Gold Weddings

Happy Friday everyone! I don’t know about you but I am absolutely loving the hint of the cool fall weather to come! It can’t get here fast enough and I hope it stays around for a little while!  It is making me very eager for the crisp winter days to come! I have visions of laying by the golden fire snuggling with my two babies and just relaxing! A girl can dream can’t she!  Back to reality! This time of year exudes a warm and tingly feeling in all of us and I love the rich colors that can be found all around us!  So today I am going to show you some gold wedding inspirations that will leave you wanting more!



Aren’t those amazing! Gold is a great color to make a statement all on its own.  It is one of the few colors that can be used by itself and still make a stunning impact.

I hope you all have  fabulous weekend!

Fabulous Friday: Candy Bar Alternatives

I don’t know about you guys but I am so glad it is Friday! Summer is winding down and we have been gearing up for our very busy fall wedding season.  October will be crazy around here and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Now onto why you are all here……..

Candy bars have been steadily climbing into the “must haves” of a lot of brides planning their dream weddings. We love a good candy bar and have so much fun creating them, I am like a kid in a candy store! (pun intended, ha!)

But as your place to go for all things different and unique we are here to give you some alternatives to the traditional candy bar! There are so many possibilities and we are here to give you a few. Our first idea still involves candy but makes it a little more interactive and creates a sweet treat that everyone loves! Behold the candy apple bar!!!! Wouldn’t this be fabulous at a fall wedding or party?

What about a trail mix bar?!?! This could easily be played up for a wedding and down for a kids birthday party.  Remember it is all in the presentation!  Moms everywhere would be grateful for this healthier alternative to all that candy!

Or perhaps a popcorn bar? You can have different flavors of popcorn along with different toppings to sprinkle on. So cute!

You know my infatuation with s’mores so I couldn’t have a post on food and not include that tasty treat! Cue the s’mores bar! It makes me want to go light a fire in this 90 degree weather and toast some marshmallows! OK, maybe I will wait till it is a little cooler down here!

If you all have a love for baked good like I do then these next ideas are a must. You could do a cupcake or pie bar with all your favorite flavors. Or perhaps a milk and cookie bar?! Yes please!

 And for a little more of an adult twist on it why not set up a margarita bar or a mojito bar?!?! I mean, it is the weekend!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend and enjoyed all of the yummy treats. Until next time…….
