This fabric ribbon backdrop is so fun- it would look great behind the head table at the reception too!

the tassel trend

If you’ve been on Pinterest lately you have probably noticed the tassel trend.

I absolutely love the fun look of this DIY project and I think it’s great for all occasions. Birthdays, weddings, parties, home decor, anything!

I’ve put together a little collection of favourites to inspire you.

Feeling crafty? HGTV shares how to do-it yourself here.

Not sure you want to make it? There are tons of options on Etsy, at Target, at your local party store and my favourite.. Studio Mucci- they have tons of color options!

the sweetheart table

Good morning brides!

As you work on your floor plan and your seating chart, an important aspect to consider is what type of head table you would like. Who’s is going to be at the head table? What layout would you like? etc.etc.

There are so many options and we are now seeing a lot of this new one! The sweetheart table is trending again this year and we’re showing you what it’s all about.

The sweetheart table can be very simple or very elaborate- I love how it is another way to customize the reception.

What do you think? Would you consider the sweetheart table for your reception?

all about the details

There’s something about the details that makes people feel special.

That extra thought or customization- it’s often what makes businesses successful. People work with people they like, with a service they trust. “the creative details” as a business name came from my love for the little things in life and my desire to make every client and every couple feel special.

I’ve always been excited over the small things, paid attention to the personalization of a gift or an event, and today’s post is inspired by that.

Here are some of my favourite ways to personalize your wedding day!

setting up your candy bar

 Candy bars have been super popular for a while now. They are great for weddings, birthdays, showers etc.

People are getting very creative and providing there guests with a nice alternative to traditional favors. Candy bars allow guests to get engaged in an activity and if done properly they look awesome too!

60f63d6b4c8ebd061675f3c2b3db4aab 2645bba36432c0652fba5f6e75acc722

 If you are considering a candy bar for your wedding, party or event, here are a few things to remember:

1. Determine a budget for this project- candy can get expensive quickly.

2. Pick a color or theme- this makes your candy bar part of the decor and can replace giving your guests favors! It also makes purchasing your candy a lot easier.

3. Make sure you have enough for everyone.

A good rule of thumb is to order between .2 and .25 pounds of candy per guest. For an event with 100 guest you should plan to have round 20-25 pounds of candy.

or

The Wedding Planners suggest

Number of guests x 3, divided by 16 = Grand Total in pounds

For example, we have 155 guests at the wedding I am coordinating this weekend:

155 x 3= 465, then 465/16 = 29lbs of candy (for kilos divide by 2.2 = 13kg)

4. Have a designated person to refill the jars if necessary (this could be a planner, coordinator, catering member or someone from your wedding party). You don’t want the jars sitting empty when only half the guests have had a chance to participate.

5. Don’t forget scoops, tongs & signs. For a wow factor get a sparkly table cloth, backdrop and fun accessories that match your theme.
