I had planned to share the party in its entirety this week, but due to the not so big snow storm that shut down Charlotte, and the crazy busy week with kids home from preschool, that didn’t happen.

However, here’s a sneak peek at some of my favorite images!

Valentine’s Day Inspiration Round Up

Tying The Knot Bridal Shower Dessert Bar || Sarah Sofia Productions

It’s hard to believe Valentine’s Day is next month. I have to admit I’ve  been scouting out the stores the last few weeks to create something fun and festive for you this year.

However, today I wanted to share past Valentine’s Day party inspiration and recipes with you.

Valentine's Day Inspiration

Valentine’s Day is all about being with loved ones which can be your best girlfriends, your boyfriend, husband, or family.

Red velvet mini cupcakes and mini strawberry cupcakes are not only a fun activity to make with your family but are delicious and the perfect school treat!

We’re working on the details for a festive Valentine’s Day celebration coming in the next few weeks. Make sure you come back and get inspired!

Kicking off the New Year!

It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone! While New Year’s Eve is over, the colors of this New Year’s Eve celebration are fitting for a Valentine’s Day or Mardi Gras party!

I love mixing red, white and gold together with some greens in floral arrangements.   This is a celebration that adults and children can enjoy! Noise makers, beads, faux sunglasses, confetti, and balloons make this party fun for all ages!

For a Valentine’s Day celebration take away the pine cones and NYE hats and add hearts as place cards or napkin holders. For a more festive Mardi Gras feel add hats, boas, and lots of beads!

 

Pink + Gold GLAM Bridal Shower

IMG_8457

I have always wanted to design and style a glam bridal shower and finally had the opportunity when Pasha Davis with Bridal Flavors and Mekeda Dempsey with Queen’s Sweets asked me to team up with them for this photo shoot!

The collaborative look was created by pulling together stationery, party supplies, delicious and glamorous sweets, linens, and a few of my favorite DIY projects.

Inspiration for this Pink + Gold GLAM bridal shower began with a little glitter and sequins.  Pink and gold are becoming a hot trend for 2014 and was the perfect fit for this GLAM themed bridal shower! Add a splash of sparkle and a pinch of glitter and you have yourself a glamorous party that all your guests will remember.

GLAM is all in the details! From the invitation and place cards by Bridal Flavors, to the linens, chairs, and place settings by Party Reflections, to the floral arrangement by The Place for Flowers, you will see the different shades of pink and gold.  Don’t forget about the pop of sparkle from the pink and gold glitter cake pops and mini whoopie pies by Queen’s Sweets.

My favorite design of this photo shoot was making the gold and pink glitter champagne bottle! I started out trying to make straight lines and alternating between gold and different shades of pink.  However, I decided half way through that it looked more unique to have the colors blend together.

I used hot pink ribbon with glitter to make napkin holders and gold sequins ribbon for ties on the hot pink polka dot straws, which added a punch of color, glam and glitter!

Adding the gold candles accented in gold glitter and the gold votive candle holders glammed up the pink tablescape and gave it the right amount of sparkle!

I have to applaud Christopher Bollinger with Bollinger Images for bringing this GLAM photo shoot to life in all the photographs.  I hope you enjoy this photo shoot as much as we enjoyed working on it!
