Event Inspiration: The Black & White Wedding

With the dog days of summer upon us (where did the summer go?!) and Fall quickly approaching, I wanted to create a wedding that meshes these seasons together into one, perfect evening…

And an early Fall wedding can actually be a difficult one to plan. You’re still in the relaxed summer mindset but with that crispness beginning to touch the air, you just may want to insert that little bit of formal flair.

But there’s nothing a little black, white, and glitter gold can’t fix! Black and White Wedding 1

The black and white lends that touch of formality but added in polka dots and stripes, maintains that sense of summer fun. Throw in a bit of glamorous gold and a hint of Autumn rose and you’ve just found yourself true love!

Speaking of glamour and true love, this venue couldn’t get any better! The Nottoway Plantation, located between Baton Rouge and New Orleans, is the perfect blend of bold and rustic.

With a few elegant touches…

…a mixture of rose and wildflowers…

…and some fun-loving finger foods…

…and, well, you have yourself an amazing and glamorously playful wedding!

The only thing that could possibly top the décor is the bride herself…

Va Va Voom!

HAPPY FOURTH!!

In honor of today, I’ve thrown together an Independence Day inspired glam interior for your viewing pleasure…

Glam 4th of July Cocktail Party

Unfortunately – or perhaps fortunately – I will be celebrating the day in a much less glam but perhaps more entertaining manner! Yeah, I’m more of a outdoor bbq, corn and kabob kind of gal. While I’d be all over that red champagne above (yum!), I’d be just as happy with an ice cold beer in hand. This is my kind of style…
Independence Day Style
And with that said, let me get on to the celebrations! Be safe, enjoy – and HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY YA’LL! Cheers.
