Carnival Themed Birthday

20 Oct

My friend Nicole was looking for some inspiration for her son’s upcoming 2nd carnival themed birthday. I hope this inspiration board helps her see that this theme is well within reach.  Food for the party can be as simple as hotdogs, snow cones and popcorn. She can add some true carnival flair by renting a cotton candy machine and making some funnel cake. I don’t know about you, but I can always tell I am at a carnival when I smell the sweet goodness of funnel cakes in the air! Balloon animals and some homemade games can entertain the kids. Invitations could be a “ticket” to the invent. What a fun way to celebrate a birthday!

The facebook challenge continues…

This time it was a “romantic swamp” wedding. Well Carrie, I hope you like what I came up with. If this doesn’t inspire someone to go for it and have the wedding of their dreams; I don’t know what will. Even a romantic swamp wedding is within reach! Go for it!

Sophisticated twist on a “redneck wedding”

18 Oct

As a continuation of the challenge I posted on facebook; I was challenged by a friend challenged to create a “redneck wedding” inspiration board. Now I could have went completely cliché, but I decided to take a different approach. While I was looking at pictures I noticed that peacock feathers have deep and rich colors that are very similar to camouflage.  So, I created a sophisticated twist on what you would think a “redneck wedding” would be.  I hope you are inspired to think outside the box!

Hidden Gem in Plant City Florida

12 Oct

A good friend of mine attended a wedding over the weekend and told me I have to check the venue out. So I looked it up online at www.gigiscountrygarden.com. It is as cute in person as it is in pictures. It is a little rustic garden. The rates are super reasonable too! I have not personally attended a wedding at this venue but I trust my friend 100% and she said it was amazing! So if you are looking for a hidden gem of a location for a rustic outdoor wedding I recommend looking into Gigi’s County Garden in Plant City!
