HP Sprout for 100 Layer Cake| Photo by Scott Clark Photo

Yesterday we shared how we made these fun floral print napkins using the HP Sprout and a site that prints custom fabric. And today we’d love to show you some ideas for a spring-y, floral wedding or bridal shower inspired by the pattern we created.

Using the same pattern created with the Sprout, we designed a matching invite suite, including place cards for the event.

Love mixing black and white with such a vibrant floral palette.

Spring flowers really are amazing. So much color and sooooo many options.

Every good party needs gold-leafed macarons, yes?

Using the same fabric, we made a quick tablecloth for the dessert table, and carried the floral theme even farther when we dressed one of our cakes in petals. (Side note: if you plan to do this for your own party, be sure to research which petals are approved for eating!)

Pretty fun, dontcha think? Just shows how one bit of inspiration can be used to inform the design and feeling of your entire event.

Thanks so much to HP Sprout for giving us an excuse to be creative in the studio!

(A gold bar cart and a pastry tower? Uh, yes x a million.) Valentine’s Day may be over but we’d never turn down a party filled to the brim with inspired décor and a little bit of romance. The celebrations of this past weekend were really just a teeny hint at an upcoming season of cheerful, springy vibes and color palettes to match. When we saw this party Peyton Frank of Grit + Gold whipped up, we knew these guys were on the same page.

Big thanks to Ben Q Photography for these snaps:

Peyton + the team took the flirty, fun essence of Valentine’s Day—the florals, balloons, and colors—and focused on transforming them into a practical and stylish event for any celebration.

A few styling tips from Peyton:

When styling a bar cart, it is important to keep it clean and simple while still achieving an interesting composition by utilizing various depths and heights. This cart is styled with sweet treats, an artful print, and a yummy cocktail. The playful yet elegant pastry tower is adorned with delicate blooms while a gold “love drunk” print in a sleek white frame compliments the specialty vodka-lemonade drink.

We love a new toy to play with at the 100 Layer Cake studio. So naturally we were thrilled when our HP Sprout arrived. Anything to inspire a DIY project is a-okay in our book, especially when it looks as sleek this.

HP Sprout for 100 Layer Cake| Photo by Scott Clark Photo

With the HP Spout we can transform any object into a graphic element for a project or shoot. 3-D objects? No problem! Can’t capture a flower without crushing it using a traditional flatbed scanner. The Sprout’s high resolution camera captures the details of even the most delicate flowers with beautiful precision, and it’s touch screen control is super easy to use.

We were inspired by bright, graphic floral patterns that are trending right now, and wanted to capture the essence of spring flowers in a fun pattern you could use throughout your party or event decor.

So yummy, right?

We quickly scanned a bunch of different flowers, then using the touch screen system, resized and arranged the flowers into a bright, whimsical pattern.

We then sent the pattern file we created to Spoonflower and had custom fabric printed to use in the tablescape we’ll be sharing tomorrow.

So fun and so apropos of the coming season. We can’t wait for Spring. Are you with us?

We’ll see you tomorrow for the full tablescape we created using our fabric. It’s perfect inspiration for a spring garden party or bridal shower.

Spring wedding inspiration | photo by Jack and Hannah Photo | 100 Layer Cake

Sometimes the littlest things inspire the best moments. Take this cuff bracelet. Love Tatum jewelry, along with beautiful architecture + nature inspired this springy elopement editorial by Jack & Hannah Film & Photography. With more stunning jewelry pieces, big, bright bouquets, an an airy wedding gown, we’ve definitely got May flowers on the mind after this one! (Not too long until that’s a reality, really!)

From Hannah of Jack & Hannah Film & Photography

I wanted this shoot to revolve around the couple, beautiful architecture, and nature. I did not want to add an overwhelming amount of “extras” but focus on a few key things (flowers, dress, jewelry) to bring it all together. I carefully chose each shot and allowed the character of the couple’s surroundings to do the talking. Elopements are a special and simple way to declare your love for the another person- why dilute that?

This hand-beaded Sarah Janks dress pretty much sums up everything we love about spring weddings: light and wispy, romantic, playful, and all around stunning. We’ll just assume you agree.

Vintage Southern California wedding inspiration | Photo by  Diana Marie Photography | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Vinatge-Southern-California-wedding-inspiration-1.jpg

Hope you guys got flowers this pretty on Valentine’s Day! This Southern California wedding shoot was built off designer Danae Grace Events’ desire not just to create something based off of all the wedding trends she sees come and go, but that would make an impact in the long run. She explains, As a designer, you see trends coming and going. What I love to create and design is a timeless look with unique details that not only encompasses the vision of my clients but inspires others. We can get behind that. Shout out to Diana Marie Photography for the lovely photos!

Danae wanted to strike a balance between in-season foliage and a vintage-industrial style. She also knew the grand essence of protea would make a statement in the arrangements. And a statement they make! Looove.

Danae tells us, We used Eventful Rentals’ industrial styled table but softened the look with their vintage, tufted/upholstered chairs with fur throws to accent. Margaret Joan Florals pulled my vision to life as she found vases and holders that are in fact from the industrial era and completed the entire look.
