We started off the first Monday of 2014 on a really good note. Did you see the colorful Durham Ranch wedding from Enjoy Events Co. and Delbarr Moradi Photography? It had the most beautiful details. And while the paper goods, dresses and cocktails all stood out, there was no denying that the florals, by Shotgun Floral Studio, were just drop dead stunning!
So we asked the ladies behind the blooms to share the bride’s bouquet recipe in case any of y’all want to snag it for yourself. Gorgeous, right?
We have the most adorable botanical first birthday up on Cakelet today, and one of the highlights was the sweet floral number 1 that Immi’s mama Nikki made as part of the flowery decor. She created this simple DIY tutorial so that all of us can make little floral installations for our upcoming parties and events too.
See the whole tutorial in our DIY section here, Immi’s botanical 1st birthday party on Cakelet, and Rylie’s boho 2nd birthday, that also features a floral piece by Nikki.
If there’s one place you should take out-of-towners visiting L.A to impress them with fancy pastries and transport them to a very Parisian-like atmosphere, it’s Bottega Louie. The desserts are out of this world amazing. It also makes for an adorable backdrop for an engagement shoot, as Carissa Woo shows us here, with these two cuties.
Carissa Woo shares a bit about their love story:
They met at a dinner in Las Vegas through Mutual friends. Peggy remembers when she first saw Guillaume, as she walked into the restaurant, a strange feeling overwhelmed her, a feeling she had never felt before – it was love at first sight! Shortly thereafter, Guillaume was in LA visiting and they had their first official date at the Bazaar at the SLS Hotel – a perfect choice for these adventurous foodies! After several long distance trips to Paris and LA, Peggy and Guillaume were engaged – Guillaume proposed to Peggy one year after their first date, at the same restaurant!
Are you kidding? These macarons are too pretty to eat, but we wouldn’t mind walking out with a box full.
Cute, cute! We wish these them the best as they prepare for what we’re sure will be a beautiful wedding, in Paris!
