Ultimate Bridal Show Navy, Gold + Magenta

Today on the Martha Stewart Weddings blog, The Brides Guide, Britney Peterson offers a look at the wedding colour palette of navy and pink. Well, what a coincidence! At the Ultimate Bridal Show yesterday in Mississauga, my tables were inspired by a similar palette of navy, deep magenta and shimmery gold. Take a look at the Martha inspiration board, then scroll down for some shots of my table set up and dessert table!

I arranged the flowers myself! Go me! The table runner I also handmade.

My booth was beside fellow wedding planner Stephanie Thompson Wedding Design.

You can see my inspiration board there in the background. The title of this was "Royal Whimsy"
My chiavaris and candelabra were graciously lent to me by Will at Chiavari Chair Rental

GORGEOUS cookie tree custom made by the very talented Angela of The Cookie Queen.

What do you think? My tables were well received at the show, and I really was pleased with how they turned out.

Ultra-glam Dessert Table

Here are some shots of a girls-night dessert and candy table I styled. I used lots of pink, silver and black to achieve a glitz and glam feeling, while juxtaposing that with sweet flowers to keep it from being too haute to touch.

I took the outer wrapper off of some Mentos and piled them loosely on the table. They sort of look like glamorous pink cigars!
Pretty mineral water bottles.
Giant martini glasses held different types of candy.

I  draped and weaved long ribbons into the chandelier and let them trail down at differing heights.

finding inspiration: Cake Stands

I am obsessed with finding perfectly adorable vessels and props for my dessert tables, especially cake stands. They have to be the cutest and easiest way to pretty up a simple cake display and they are extremely versatile. Don't agree with me that they are the best thing to happen to cakes since... well, cakes? Try typing in 'cake stands' into Google Images and see if you don't change your mind. Better yet, type in any colour before 'cake stands' [eg. green cake stands] and you will see that the possibilities are endless.

Today I bought this beauty from Write Impressions in Waterloo [my old stomping grounds in my Uni days] after a wedding consultation. I am such a sucker for this store, they stock the most beautiful things, and their set-ups are just as beautiful as the products themselves. I can't wait to use this in my dessert tables! It will go perfectly with the Sugar and Spice table I have coming up, and I may even try to make it work for my ultra-glam totally girly table as well.

Do you use cake stands to display your wares? What other props or vessels do you use?

run and tell that, HOMEBOY

Is anyone else totally feeling the remix of this dude sending out a warning to his sister's attacker on the Huntsville, AL CBS news? This is sure to be a party anthem soon, so I think it warrants being posted on Celebrate It!

Wedding Wednesdays: Crystal and Nathan

Here are some shots from a wedding I coordinated a few weeks back for a wonderful couple, Crystal and Nathan.

The wedding took place at the Northridge Public Golf Course in Brantford, Ontario which was a beautiful backdrop for their simple celebration.

 I love this picture of Nathan beaming at his bride during their handfasting ceremony.

 Crystal used scrapbook pages as the guestbook so that she could slot them into a scrapbook after the wedding!

 Can you believe only one single male in the whole place!
 The cake, dreamed up by Crystal after she saw a similar design as a cell phone background, was brought to life by the talented Jo-Anne of Divalicious Cakes in Paris.
 These two were AMAZING dancers, I love that the photographer snapped a pic of them in action!

Veggie Buffet Table

This Christmas my sister had a pot-luck with a bunch of her girlfriends and she decided that her offering was going to be fresh raw veggies. She wanted to put a funky spin on the concept, since veggies are pretty boring, and she asked me for ideas. I thought it might be cool to try a veggie buffet table and set it up like a candy display like those I create for other events. The result was pretty cool!

The girls demolished the table in no time, partly due to the fact that the veggies were presented like treats! Might be a good trick for a children's party!
Have you ever tried to put a new spin on a candy table?
