Next week we’ve got a fresh, fun, fabulous wedding and party trends event just for you!

We’re whipping up gorgeous new spring florals, DIY wedding decor, and so much more.

Beautiful Private Label Linens in spring’s hot hues will be adorned to feature DIY lace doily tabletops, DIY lace doily scallop cocktail table wraps, and so much more.

Victoria Sdoukos Couture will captivate with her sensational silk wedding gowns – all fresh off our fantasy’s fashion runways –  with the most elegant touches of vintage beading, glamour, and gorgeous.

Best of all – each dreamy bridal gown is paired with a handmade confection of a wedding cake – one right after the other – for a delicious cake walk of a promenade throughout the party.

Pure Kitchen Catering shall astound with their beautiful bites – don’t they always?

Cocktails, bien sur, shall abound, with Binny’s crafting up local craft cocktails perfect for spring and summer parties.

And of course Carasco Photography and Fig Media will capture all the magic, for us to share and inspire.
