Sparkle, Shine and Pop!

Friday, December 23, 2011

Hello lovelies! I hope you all have great plans for this weekend and the rest of our holiday season! The holidays are especially exciting when you have a new baby in tow and we feel supremely blessed with and even undeserving of our baby Elle and all the love that she receives from our family and friends. The term "it takes a village to raise a child" is seriously no joke! ;)

On to other festive news - I thought I would revisit the tablescape we designed for the Utterly Engaged New Year's Party last year! It won first place in their challenge and landed us the cover page of their Issue #15! As a part of the first place prize, we were able to bring out tablescape idea to life and have it photographer by the superbly talented and sweet, Jasmine Star! Working with her was a dream and our dream setting was the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. Working with friends is always a delight, so when Jane from Olive Hue Paper Goods, Cindy from Floral Elements and I first discussed the idea of putting together a design in less than a week for the party, we knew that even if we didn't win the design challenge, we would have tons of fun! Of course, it was immensely rewarding to have a panel of our professional peers choose us as the winners, but in the end, playing with a design we rarely get to venture into with our weddings was the true payoff. :)

I am hoping some of these fun colors and ideas can inspire you last-minute party planners! :) I personally love this color combination and usually use shades of pink in lieu of reds for the holidays. Switch the blues we have for some greens and you have instant-holiday-cheer! (Although I think the pink and blue work just as nicely!)

The challenge was to fit the party theme of "Snap! Crackle! Pop!" So we came up with a concept around the line of "He Popped the Question. She said Yes!" and incorporated this into the design of the table and the paper goods.

I love our bride and groom chair signs with the fringe flowers and detailing!

 Cindy from Floral Elements really brought the vision to life with her floral design and it fit perfectly with these fun linens from La Tavola Linens.

 We created a backdrop for the dessert table by stringing popcorn (to go along with the "pop" theme) and spray painting the popcorn garlands gold. We also made hot pink confetti garlands and dusted them with hot pink glitter.

Isn't that cake the cutest! I loved all of the desserts that Melody from My Sweet and Saucy created for us! The custom cookies with the gold leaf embellishment are definitely my fave!

Party blowers served as escort cards and each guest was given a confetti popper, personal "Pop" champagne bottle and popcorn ball.

I love the images Jasmine captured of our bride and groom!

Isn't our bride the cutest? I thought her hair and makeup was perfect for our shoot! Thanks so much to Monica for Theresa Huang Makeup and Design! And thanks to Vivian from Tomato Weddings for supplying the lovely wardrobe attire for the bride and groom!

Love these shots by the rooftop pool at The SLS Hotel.

Happiest Holidays to you all! I hope you all have something amazing planned for the next few days and look forward to seeing you again in the new year! xoxo!!!
