Fall dinner party for FEED Projects | hosted by 100 Layer Cake | Photo by Paige Jones | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=79909

We aren’t exactly enjoying fall weather yet in LA, but we *are* decidedly in a very fall mood suddenly. This time of year we love to gather around a table to share delicious food and drinks, whether it’s for a major holiday or just to celebrate the change in seasons. When FEED Projects asked us if we might want to participate in their FEED Supper initiative this month, we naturally jumped at the chance to host a party of our own to raise money for such a mighty cause.

You may have spotted a few snaps from that night on Instagram, but if not don’t worry. We have plenty of gorgeous photos from Paige Jones to share with you here.

We never miss an opportunity to throw a party, and the idea that this dinner would raise over 1,000 meals towards FEED’s goal made it all the more special.

Whoa Nelly created an amazing spread of passed hors d’oeuvres, a cheese platter, and yummy plated supper. Plus cocktails. Did we mention the cocktails? We were literally in heaven.

The scroll wrapped around each glass read “By sharing a meal with people you love, you donated meals to those you may never meet.” We donated $10.00 and 100 meals for every guest at our dinner.

To see our inspiration for this party and plan one of your own (hello, perfect inspiration for a holiday meal!), you can click over to our guest post on the FEED blog here.

If you’d like to host your own FEED Supper this week or next, it’s totally not too late! You can visit their site to learn everything you need to know about hosting your own dinner, including links to purchase decor. FEED Supper doesn’t have to be fancy (you know that’s how we like it!), it just has to include good food and good company in the name of raising meals for people in need. It’s a great way to kick off the holiday entertaining season, we say.

Don’t have time to host a dinner, but still want to donate? No problem! Click here to donate via the 100 Layer Cake donation page. We’d love to raise $1000 (that’s 10,000 meals) from our amazing readers!

Thank you so much to everyone who made this possible. Special shout out to our gal Sarah Samuel for being the hostess with the mostess, always.

Intimate woodland Berkeley California wedding | Photo by Danielle Poff Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=79651

Event planner Jacqueline + project manager Casey had a pretty clear vision for “I do”: intimate, rustic, elegant, and definitely outdoors. They landed on UC Berkley’s Redwood Grove Amphitheater + and knew it was the spot. Jacqueline tells us, The redwood trees not only provided a beautiful backdrop, but made it feel private and romantic. We had always wanted an intimate and small wedding surrounded by our closest friends and family, and the redwood grove provided just that.

Thanks to Danielle Poff Photography sharing these photos.

From the bride… The most memorable moment from our wedding was our vows. We had decided to write our own personal vows and to our surprise, they were almost identical to each other. We were not only moved by each other’s words, but had all of our family and guests too. You could really feel the love we had for one another. It’s a moment that I will play over and over in my head and treasure forever.

Jacqueline’s dad made this wood backdrop + chalkboard easels. To make sure the overall vibe was romantic and elegant, they opted for rustic elements in the ceremony + chic décor for the reception. Take a peek at Jacqueline’s Pinterest board for more inspo.

Jacqueline says, The gown is a dramatic composition of lace and a striking trumpet silhouette with slight pleating at the skirt. The fabric used was a lace appliqué and English net. The fabric was a champagne color with an ivory lace on top.

Fall in California is a beautiful thing, yes? Inspired by Holman Ranch in Carmel Valley (complete with take-your-breath-away-stunning oak trees + rolling hills for a backdrop), Lara of Sealed With A Kiss Events whipped up an enchanting autumn countryside scene with a Spanish flare and soft details. Thanks to the lovely Danielle Poff Photography for sharing these light-filled photos with us!

Lara says, Studio Cake designed a beige cake with a faux leather band wrapped around and small white ruffle details to which we added some fresh fruit and flowers. It was placed on a sweet white table with a Spanish medallion runner and signage from Flight Design Co. that read, “Love is Sweet”.
