Mid-century modern done oh so right. Bride Jett sums it up: We wanted to throw the most epic party of our lives that celebrated our love for each other. What better way to do that than to have amazing cocktails and dance the night away in a gorgeous setting? Nope, there isn’t a better way, and these photos by Steve Cowell prove it. From taco carts to a killer venue like the The Sinatra House, to literally taking the plunge…these two knew just how to say ‘I do’.

Ryan’s vows described the memories they had documented with almost 1,000 photos over the last four years. He said, Each photo is a memory of the life we have built together, and today we get to add building a marriage to the album—then he snapped a selfie of them both, surprising everyone. So cute!

1950s + 60s radios from Ryan’s collection made fab centerpieces + décor. He also digitally illustrated all the radios (took over 8 hours each!), to use as assignment cards for guests to use to find their seats.

The night ended with—you guessed it—a jump in the pool, joined by guests and Event Designer Jesi, who just knew it would be an awesome moment.

Advice from the bride…
Trust your vendors. From the best flowers that were in season, to which beer/wine would be the most crowd-pleasing, to which songs would set the tone and get everyone on the dance floor, to which lighting was the best for photos. We had the best, and literally stress-free wedding experience by doing so and were able to completely enjoy our day.

So happy we could share in the fun, congrats Jett + Ryan!

It’s gonna be a good month, you guys. We can feel it. As much as we love mega-events (we are wedding people, after all), we have to admit that hosting a relaxed, laid-back party for a holiday like the 4th of July can be super fun too. With a little outfit planning, DIY decor, and sweet treats, we’re ready to show our spirit. Our tips? Mix and match red, white, and blue fashion to create a star-spangled ensemble, and add a little glitter for good measure.

July 4th outfit | 100 Layer CakePinstripe dress | Silver Birkenstocks | HatSwimsuit | Nail polish | Lip and cheek color

Streamer decor | via Style Me Pretty

Then, turn your backyard or little corner of the beach into a mingling spot for friends + fam with the help of streamer decor made from crepe paper + string lights.

July 4th ideas | 100 Layer Cake

Star napkinsBeach ping pong set | Burger baskets | BBQ tool set

Double up on tables: one for play, one for eats. Wouldn’t want to forget the BBQ tools…

popsicle flavor ideas | 100 Layer Cake

Coconut and blood orange | Green tea, Meyer lemon and basil | Root beer float | Strawberry Greyhound

A 100lc party is never complete without a cute, tasty popsicle recipe.

How pretty are these fruit ice cubes?

And voila! You have a spirited summer party in a flash! Don’t forget about all the little details, like some sweet sparkler drink stirrers via Etsy.

Happy fourth!

Us mamas at the 100 Layer Cake HQ always appreciate it when a wedding is a family-friendly affair. As do photogs Giuli & Giordi and the rest of the team that whipped up this super fun and playful shoot for Say Yep Magazine. Giuli says, Our wedding didn’t feature a separate kids table, a simplified menu, or decor just for the little ones; everything aimed to be perfect for both kids and grownups. And perfection it is. We’re way into the trendy pastel palette, delicate paper flower decorations, hand drawn elements, and sweet wardrobe choices for the little guests and their parents.

The concept of home—the place where the family comes together—was the starting point also for the use of the houses as decorations: some were constructed in cardboard and became flower vases, others hosted the sweets display, and others were made in white paper to be decorated by the kids.
