A styled shoot inspired by cakes? We’ll take it, and then some! Photog Esther Sun had a vision for a spring-themed shoot influenced by patterns in a certain vintage wallpaper, which naturally led to cakes to resemble the warmth of spring. Milieu Florals brought that dream to life with earthy accents and M Cakes Sweets whipped up the cakes to match. So much deliciousness wrapped into one photo shoot, right?

The amaranthus is just the *perfect* little detail, isnt’ it?

For those of you getting married this year, things are probably heating up on the wedding planning front, yeah? Big decisions have been made, but now it’s time to hone in on the little things… oh and that really exciting part of getting married – the Gift Registry! We think it’s easily one of the most fun parts, (like a shopping spree for your new home together!), but we also know that some people can find the entire process totally overwhelming. Which is where the Wedding Parties Events with Crate and Barrel come in.
Specifically the one we’ll be co-hosting on April 12th at The Grove in Los Angeles!
Most importantly, you’ll leave the event with a finished Gift Registry, ready for your guests to shop in the weeks and months leading up to your wedding. Crate and Barrel registry experts will be on hand to help you select essentials that fit your life and style as a couple. Yes, grooms are welcome and encouraged to attend!
We’ll be there too sharing tips and ideas for some of our favorite parts of wedding planning – the cake, the flowers, and the cocktails – and we can’t wait to chat wedding with all of you who can make it.
As a bonus, all Wedding Parties Event guests will take home a pair of these beautiful and multi-purpose stemless wine glasses (add 10 more to your registry STAT), along with a few other goodies hand selected by us and our friends at Crate and Barrel. As you can see these glasses will be an essential part of your entertaining arsenal in the years to come. Love the idea of using them for flowers, appetizers, a fancy sundae, and of course, for wine!
We hope to see so many of you there! It’s going to be a really fun morning, filling registries and learning about some of our favorite parts of wedding planning. Did we we mention the store is closed to the public during the event? Yep. So you’ll get all sorts of personal attention to help you create the ideal Gift Registry for you and your betrothed.
Hello, happy April, and welcome to what is quite possibly the prettiest Easter brunch inspiration we’ve ever seen. The ladies at Beijos Events really out did themselves, complete with a most delectable dessert spread by Sweet & Saucy Shop, and these snaps by our gal Megan Welker seal the deal….
When we start seeing poppies we know that Spring is upon us so they were a big inspiration to us for this table, they just make us smile and remind us that winter is gone and there are sunny days ahead!! MV Florals did an amazing job with mixing different shades of poppies with ranunculus and anemones to create the perfect spring floral palette.
O.M.G. How beautiful are these? Sweet & Saucy Shop crafted the hand painted macarons, floral cupcakes, gold-flaked meringues, and carrot cake too.
The table setting from Borrowed Blu was a mix of bohemian and vintage glassware, and we loved their ombre dyed linens for napkins! Playing with their glassware collection was just way too fun, we loved using it to design the perfect mimosa bar
