Cakies, the last day of good ol’ 2013 is finally here and there’s only one way to end it: with a heck of a lot of gold! The ladies of A Savvy Event took their love of gold to the max when they decided to carry us into the new year with their ultimate New Year’s Eve glitzy gold fete. And they’re not just partial to any one shade of gold, they love every single shade of gold, which you’ll see momentarily. So if you’re hosting a NYE bash tonight and need some last minute party inspiration, here you go! Alls we got to say is confetti, confetti, confetti… and champagne.

These push-pop confetti poppers from Thimble Press are so perfect for NYE or any party, really.

A photo booth is kind of a must at any NYE celebration. You can run to a store to pick up some last minute photo props or just whip some up yourself. The shape of the top hat & bow tie are basic enough to replicate, and we all know the moustache prop is always a hit, this time just make them with glitter paper!

Make sure to pop into the gallery for even more NYE party inspiration. There are some really cute ideas in there!

Northern California New Year's Eve wedding | Photo by Edyta Szyszlo | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/

New Year’s Eve weddings are kinda perfect. People tend to scramble to decide how to spend NYE anyways, right? So why not attend a wedding surrounded by friends, good food, drinks, and a dance floor? Oh yeah, then there’s the dressing up part. People love to dress to the nines for the holiday, so giving them a reason to bring out the sequins for your wedding won’t be a stretch. Courtney + Neal, we applaud you for achieving the ultimate romantic, inviting, elegant, wedding & NYE soiree. And Edyta Syszlo, for capturing it beautifully.

The flowers in Courtney’s bouquet were inspired by the evening + a little southern flaire- fresh cotton with white peonies, roses and babies breath.

100 Layer Cake holiday

As we wrap up 2013 and retire from our computers for just a few delicious days again this year, we want to say thank you so very very much for all the support you’ve given us over the past (almost!) five years. We hope that our little corner of the internet gives you each helpful and beautiful inspiration for celebrations big and small in your life. You all certainly provide a constant source of inspiration in ours. Without your beautiful weddings and parties and projects and general love in our direction, 100 Layer Cake wouldn’t be here creating and curating the things that we love every day.

Here’s to some quiet days over the next week and big 2014 in the year ahead!

Lots of love,

Jillian, Amanda, Kristina, and the 100 Layer Cake team!

We’re going to end our 2013 roundup with one of our favorite wedding details, paper goods! Don’t you guys swoon over cardstock, typefaces, calligraphy, letterpress, flourishes and gold foil too? This year was the year for wedding invitations. And if you’ve followed our blog for a bit, you know how much we love a good invitation suite. Equally, we’ve loved to see gorgeous design carry over to the menus, escort cards, and decor. Take a look at the paper details below and you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.

Event designers, stylists, DIY brides (+ families and friends)- you seriously brought it this year when it came to your wedding decor. Tablescapes, photo booth backdrops, dessert tables, aisles, there really wasn’t a corner of your already gorgeous wedding venue that wasn’t touched by some unique and beautiful idea. And when we went back to look through our favorite weddings, we were in awe over the amount of creativity. The pretty explosion of marquee letters and paper flowers was a nice little surprise, so we can’t wait to see what’s coming next year!

Wedding cakes were looking really good this year. Fondant turned into sequins and tie dye, tiers turned into architectural beauties with layers of patterns, textiles, and geometric shapes… and the sugar flowers well, they were beyond gorgeous! We cannot wait to see what cake designers come up with in 2014!
