Did you guys know that The Lyrid meteor shower is this week? The annual meteor shower peaks tonight + tomorrow night (in the early morning hours to be exact), where you can see 10-20 meteors littering the night sky per hour. To celebrate this incredible show, Bramble Workshop arranged a little celestial fête for friends to gather, eat, sip, and stargaze. Pretty cool, right? Celeste Noche has the pics and don’t forget to try the recipe too.

Just the night for a creative cocktail. Navy Skies by Mint and Mirth:

Our stargazing cocktail features Oregon’s finest Crater Lake Rye, a smooth whiskey crafted from 95% rye grain and pure Cascade Mountain water. Its flavor is rich with deep toffee notes and a peppery spice that defines true American rye whiskey. The amethyst color and intense flavor make the perfect sipping cocktail with which to watch the night sky.

Now for the recipe…

Ingredients
2 oz. Crater Lake Rye Whiskey
¼ oz. simple syrup
¼ oz. Sage & Sea Farms Blueberry Shrub
dash of bitters
orange peel

Instructions
In an Old Fashioned glass, add the syrup, bitters and orange peel. Use a muddler to gently press the orange peel to release the citrus oils. Pour in whiskey, shrub, and syrup, then stir. Add a dash of bitters (we used Hella Bitters) and voila!

And how to make blueberry shrub (adapted from “Porch Parties: Cocktail Recipes and Easy Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining” by Denise Gee)

Ingredients
4 cups blueberries
2 cups cider vinegar
2 cups cane sugar

Instructions
Cover blueberries and vinegar in an airtight container and refrigerate for 3 days. Strain the mixture into a bowl and press berries to release all the juice. Discard the solids. Next, pour the liquid into a saucepan with sugar and bring to a boil, stirring for 3 minutes. Set aside and cool. Keeps in the fridge for 10 days.

We wanted to create an atmosphere of elegance and allure that was reminiscent of the night sky with dark blues and soft white accents. Jessica from Bramble Workshop created the DIY batik runner that eventually became the centerpiece of our vision. With the strong wave of navy on the table, it was only natural for the blooms to be white and plentiful, just like the night sky.

The menu for the evening tied everything together so that the stargazing theme didn’t end with the tablescape but continued on with Ariela’s organic, vegan menu and Mint and Mirth’s “Navy Skies” cocktail to enjoy just before heading out to stargaze at the end of the evening.

Copper and coral wedding inspiration  | Photo by  Melissa Jill Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Copper-and-coral-Arizona-wedding-inspiration

Recently engaged cakies, you’ll want to bookmark this color palette: copper and coral mixed with desert hues and wood tones—the pic below by Melissa Jill Photography sums it up pretty well. Actually, all of these golden hour film photos she took for LVL Weddings & Events’ inaugural Arizona shoot (they just expanded from CA to include services in AZ!) have us brimming with spring wedding décor ideas. Real couple Emily & Jeff gave off the authentic romance such a shoot requires; it was a bonus that the chosen wedding attire fit to a T too!

Heather of LVL Weddings & Events tells us, Principal planner, Emily Schiesl, has a love for the Moscow Mule (particularly the copper mug) and the beautifully exotic flower, protea. You will see copper and the bright hues from the protea echoing throughout the tablescape and floral design by Petal Pusher, as well as the copper foil details on the stationery by Idieh Design.

Sanctuary’s resort boasts incredible views from all angles, but we settled on Paradise Views Lawn to set up a romantic tablescape under a wooden terrace by Petal Pusher, which also acted as a ceremony backdrop. The clean lines and simplicity of the resort played a part in the choice of the Ines gown by BHLDN and menswear by Ted Baker—modern, tailored, and fresh.

Intimate outdoor rehearsal dinner inspiration | Photo by Lauren Balingit | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Intimate-outdoor-rehearsal-wedding-inspiration

A romantic dinner beneath fruit trees sounds pretty amaze right now, huh? Especially when the only thing that separates you and your groom are a big, wild set of florals like the ones Kelly Lenard of Intertwine whipped up. She envisioned an intimate rehearsal dinner at a private estate complete with vintage furniture and elegant tableware. The design goes quite nicely with Lauren Balingit’s dreamy photos, we think…

From Kelly of Intertwine: I felt the space would be perfect for a small rehearsal dinner. The backyard boasted trees full of oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and avocados. Kept private by walls of crawling vines, I saw a laid back, elegant affair adorned with flowers and fruit from the property.

Kelly joined forces with Ali of The Furniture Library for the rentals. Nothing better than taking a few fancy vintage pieces and placing them in a beautiful outdoor setting.

The Cream Event 2015 | Photo by  Brian Tropiano

Friday is here, we’ve already had a fab Kate Spade wedding up on le blog, and now we get to share the photos from The Cream Event 2015—what a morning! This year was spectacular, even beyond the usual creativity overload and dance-off amazingness. There was a neutral color palette that turned out stunning on display and in dress (as per the photo above), a dance-off that ended with Wanderable and Mr and Mrs Smith’s epic honeymoon prize, and a group vendors who totally brought it. Okay, just check out all the photos already!

Okay, are you ready for the dance-off recap? The party got pretty crazy, probably because Wanderable offered up a $5k honeymoon to the happy couple/bestest dancers! Mr & Mrs Smith also chimed in with this teensy gift of oh, a hotel credit worth $2k too. The stakes were high! But boy was judging this one tough…

Kate Spade inspired wedding | Photo by Edyta Szyszlo Photography | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/Kate-Spade-Inspired-wedding

Krystle loves Kate Spade. Cody loves (and works for) Nike. A marriage is all about compromise, yeah? They combined their loves for the ultimate wedding theme they dubbed #formalwithsneakers, and all their friends got involved too. Even booking Edyta Szyszlo to capture it sent good vibes all around—their other vendors immediately jumped on board when they heard her name. Shoutout to Edyta for brightening our day with this one!

Krystle tells it, Cody said I could have the Kate Spade wedding of my dreams if and only if we could some how involve Nike. (Cody has been a ‘sneaker head’ since the day he was born (or started walking) and has been working for Nike for 2 years now.) So, after picking a theme, what’s the next most important thing in a modern day wedding? An amazing hashtag. The official theme for our wedding was #FormalwithSneakers. Most of our male guests came dressed up in their swankiest suits and tuxes wearing a pair of the flyest Nike’s. Our friends and family were just as excited as we were to get dressed up for the occasion.

How’d these bouquets turn out so fittingly, you ask? Krystle asked for “Kate Spade-y” flowers and Tango + Foxtrot delivered with peonies, anemones, and a chic striped ribbon.

Cute anecdote: K + C met in 6th grade, which is the first time she noticed this cool kid decked out in Nike. They didn’t start dating until after college, but his proposal in Italy did involve a very hard-to-get pair of sneakers that Krystle had been eyeing (and a ring, of course). Their Sonoma venue, Ramekins, offered a little nod to Italy with the vines, flowers, and Italian courtyard too.

Maggie of Type & Title, who came up with the calligraphy and Romeo & Juliet inspired paper pieces, also calligraphed an Edgar Allen Poe poem on a silk scarf for the bride to wear. Lovely bride and groom gift inspiration, no?
