My Little Flower Shop Wedding Centerpiece Goes To A “Kate Spade” Party

A modern wedding centerpiece from our website was featured in a blog today about translating your favorite clothing designer’s “look” into a look for an event. Our wedding centerpiece was put on an inspiration board for a Kate Spade-styled event.  How delightful!  Thanks to Dana from Big City Farm Girl, and to Lindsay from Pinklet and C for including us in this fun concept.

Hi Everyone, I’m Dana – fashion lover, DIY enthusiast, blogger over at Big City Farm Girl, and good friend of Lindsey’s! I’m super excited to be posting over here at Pinklet and C. I wanted to make my post both fun and inspirational and came up with the idea of translating one of my favorite designers into an awesome party. When a designer creates a collection it needs to be cohesive, inspirational, eye catching, and make everyone go “wow.” Well don’t you want the same reaction when throwing a dinner party, birthday celebration, or bridal shower? Incorporating a certain designer’s aesthetic is a way to make your party both  fun and fashionable. One of my favorite designers out there right now is Kate Spade. I’m in love with her bold, gorgeous, bright pieces and jewel tone accessories and of course classic polka dot prints. So why not take this look and plan a party around in?

Now who doesn’t want to throw a party based on their favorite designer?
Thanks Lindsey for having me over here at Pinklet and C. I would love for everyone to stop by my blog and say hello!

Amazing Ceremony Decor Idea – Artists Are Full Of ‘Em!

This image, from the photostream of fiber artist Odile Gova, is a phenomenal idea for a ceremony site full of trees.  Labor intesive to be sure, wrapping trees in lace would be no picnic. But the greater point here is the non-traditional source of the idea.  I found the image on Pinterest – but nowhere near the “weddings/events” category.  My point – event design is an art – so why not follow the lead of visual artists? Cast your net beyond Mindy Weiss and Martha Stewart.  Think outside the Tiffany & Co. box, people!
