Winter Weddings

There is something so romantic and unique about a winter wedding. We love the details that go into any wedding but those that sparkle, glimmer and bring warmth are extra special!

Here are our favourite trends for the upcoming chilly season!

Jewel tones, natural textures and deep coloured florals work so well in the winter months. Cranberry, jade and metallics are trending and we could not be more excited!

The season lends itself so well to handmade touches! Sparkly crafts made for wonderful centrepieces and incorporating the holidays into your day can be done in a sweet, subtle way ; we love this ornament seating chart idea!

the perfect palette

Writing this post has been so much fun! There are a lot of pretty palettes trending for 2015 and we are loving the combination of glam with neutrals and natural textures.

Here are our favorite picks! We can’t wait to see yours

Pantone-Colors-for-Spring-2015

Pantone’s Spring 2015 Color Palette is amazing. The warm tones and blues are sure to make some gorgeous event designs!

Moving towards the summer, fall and winter, I am expecting a lot of other pretty combinations..

I just love the way these pink and gray tones complement Pantone’s color of the year!

navy-blush_resized

Navy and blush; one of my personal favorites! Replace blush with ivories and you have such an elegant look.

sangria-gold_resized

Sangria and Gold! This palette presents so many opportunities for play with design. More to come on this one!

colors

Just love.

black and gold

With Kate Spade inspired looks all over the internet, it is no wonder black and gold are one of the most popular event color palettes. We love the pop of pink and of course, glitter!

purple

 

Did you know purple remains one of the most popular colors for weddings? I like the way different tones can be combined to create different looks. For the fall of 2015, I am predicting a lot of jewel tones; drama, elegance and bold accents!

flowers

Happy Planning!

2014 favorites

As the end of the year approaches, we’ve taken a moment to look back at 2014 and we are feeling so blessed for the wonderful moments we were able to share with friends, family and clients (as well as their friends and family!)

Thank you to everyone who was part of the big moments, and the small moments of 2014, we cannot thank you enough for your support, friendships, challenges and laughs!

Wishing everyone a 2015 filled with love, success and happiness!

the cocktail party host

Cocktail parties have to be one of our favorite types of events!

Your guests have the flexibility of showing up when it fits in their schedule, stay for as long as they would like, enjoy a few treats and mingle with an intimate group!

the creative details hosted it’s first wedding industry networking event on Thursday night and despite the storm and cancellations, we would like to think it was a success!

Our plan was to get a small group of (amazing/enjoyable/ talented) vendors together as a thank you for a great wedding season and a cheers to being industry friends!

IMG_20141120_190640 IMG_20141120_190652

Here are a few tips for planning your first cocktail hour!

1. Don’t worry about the number of guests. A cocktail hour should have a casual feel with people coming and going as they please. Whether there is a group of 5 or a group of 50 in the room, it will be a great time!

2. Know your group. We were inviting all industry-related guests so we made sure our event was not on Friday/Saturday/Sunday when they would be working. A Thursday evening seemed like the perfect timing for the group to get together and have a glass of champagne before the busy weekend!

3. Pick a theme or color scheme for your event (ours was Kate Spade inspired). This helps guide you through the planning process to ultimately create a pretty, coordinated evening.

4. Keep it simple and work with people you trust. We had hors d’oeuvres, mini sandwiches, snacks and sweet cookies! That’s it. Not need to go over the top, no one is anticipating dinner, just a little something.

5. Enjoy yourself. Hosting a networking event is like hosting a dinner party or an event in your home. You want to be calm, enjoy your guests and not run around worrying about things being done (planning ahead and keeping it simple helps so much with this!)

Thank you to the all the vendors who helped us make this event and a special thank you to the wonderful team at Balzac’s Coffee Roasters for being such a pleasure to work with and an a wonderful, unique venue for our networking event!

When hosting parties with kids, I like to plan a lot of activities to keep them busy. This ensures they have fun and keeps them out of trouble :)

There are so many free printables online; bingo, word games etc. for every age!

Decorating sugar cookies is always fun too!

End the night with a scary movie and treats in the fort! A great way to unwind after all the sugar.

When hosting a group of adults, I like to play up the theme of the haunted house and make things a little more spooky.

You can get creative with food for this party and make your decor focal activity points as well.

fall

Fall is here!

The crisp air, the change in the color of the leaves and the nutmeg-cinnamon-pumpkin flavoured everything!

During my walk this evening I found myself dreaming of the sweet details that would be created for this season and next season’s fall weddings.. I felt giddy just thinking about the upcoming projects! (you know you love what you do when..)

Today I thought I would share a few of these details with all of you and inspire your fall decor!

Gold rimmed plates, metallic paint, a simple name tag and a tiny pumpkin- perfection! I just love this look.

September Goals

As a part of the wedding industry I spend the summer on- the- go. With client meetings, paperwork, DIY projects, weddings and squeezing in family events, I forget to sit back and reflect on the busy season and what my goals are moving forward. As I sit by the window with my pretty view and a cup of tea I have decided to make myself a list (yes, another list!) of September goals. Even though the month is looking very busy I want to make time for a lot of important things!

Business Goals

Complete new website and showcase services and photos of this summer’s work

Network with 5 new vendors in Southwestern Ontario

Plan an amazing party for a favorite vendor :)

Catch up on paperwork and adjust my business plan

Enjoy my week of vacation

Personal Goals

Make time for exercise, a walk to clear your mind can work wonders

Print photos and hang them

Try a new recipe every week ( i love to cook!)

Have dinner with the girls

and again, enjoy my week of vacation :)

What are your goals this month? I find listing them makes me more accountable somehow.

Happy Planning!
