Although many couples are choosing cake alternatives such as pie bars, candy bars, cupcakes, macaroon towers etc. Cakes are still trending and these unique toppers are so much fun.

Whether it be theme related, monogrammed or florals, these modern, personal touches to the traditional dessert make them that much yummier!

thanks for stopping by, wishing you all a wonderful day!

color trend: radiant orchid

Good morning everyone!

This weekend was filled with brides, sparkles and colors. My weekend inspired this post- Pantone’s color of the year (2014) is Radiant Orchid is slowly starting to show up and it’s exciting. I was kind of surprised by this color choice, but I like it. It’s bright, comes in many pretty shades and goes well with other colors and neutrals (which I love!).

winter weddings

I’m sure most of you are dreaming of a destination wedding on this cold winter day but I have to say, one of the weddings I did last winter at a ski resort was one of my favourites!

5 reasons to hire an event planner

Happy Saturday everyone!

I hope you are all having a great weekend so far. Whether you are taking some time to yourself to relax or out and about getting things done, enjoy it!

December is the most popular month for engagements- 60% of engagements happen over the holiday season (crazy right??)

Being in the events industry, January is a very busy month connecting with new clients and following up with those who are already booked. I love working smaller events; intimate weddings, baby showers, engagement parties, milestone birthdays, cocktail parties etc. I have a passion for working closely with the client to create a memorable celebration.

For those who are recently engaged or planning a special celebration, here are my top 5 reasons why you should hire an event planner:

1. We go through a step by step process to ensure your event is entertaining and the details are taken care of.

2. We work for you to make sure things happen on time, on budget and within the theme. We are up to date on trends and we’re usually filled with ideas.

3. We keep you on track and organized. Planning can get overwhelming- it’s not for everyone so sometimes it’s best to leave it up to those in the industry. We often have tips, tricks and connections to give you a different perspective on issues.

4. If and when a problem arises, an event planner can most often take care of it without the guests or host being aware.

5. Most of the time we know the vendors. People are more likely to remember an event where things went wrong (ex: the dj didn’t show up, caterer was horrible) and that’s not the type of memories you want your guests to walk away with!

You want to enjoy this special time with friends and family and we make sure that happens 🙂

cupcakes

Good morning everyone

Today is a Wedding Wednesday post!

Cupcakes have been a popular alternative to wedding cakes for a little while now. I love the idea of using dessert variations instead of a traditional wedding cake. It’s a nice way to get creative and make your event unique.

For those of you who are interested in this trend or who just want a good recipe- here is some inspiration!

First, some pretty designs

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome back to creative entertaining- today’s post is a Wedding Wednesday post!

I am featuring a trend in weddings which I love-sequins! They tend to be used in winter weddings but I think they could be done well for every season!

Here’s some inspiration

In your decor:

In your bridal fashion:

All these sparkles are making me happy- starting the day off right!

feathers

Happy Friday!

I hope you are all looking forward to the weekend. Today’s post is all about feathers! This trend is so unique because it is modern yet soft and elegant. I did a January wedding last year which had feather accents and it was beautiful.

appetizers!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

As the weekend (and the holidays) approach it is time to start thinking about entertaining! I love the idea of having a variety of appetizers for my guests. It’s nice to try different things and mingle.

Gourmet hors d’oeuvres are also becoming popular in the weddings and events industry. These ones are easy enough to make at home and tasty enough to impress your guests!

 Avocado Feta Dip

This dip is great with crackers, chips, pitas, veggies or anything else you have in your pantry!
