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.
