Divine Desserts

Picture Credit- 1 Wedding Source Website
Now we all know women love chocolate, but then again, who doesn't like dessert? Everyone has a sweet tooth every so often; some people more than hem! Well why not bring some sweet creations to your big day. While guests always expect the traditional cake to be dessert, what about surprising them with a dessert station to allow them  various choices of bite-size treats? I've personally done it a bunch of times for various clients, and it's always been such a hit! You can serve mini cakes, eclairs, chocolate mousse in little shot glasses, fruit cups, mini pies, cake pops, etc. May I recommend picking some desserts with fruit toppings like strawberries or raspberries. It adds color to the presentation and creates greater appeal. You can also decorate the station with flowers or centerpieces that match your event's decor.

If you find yourself running into trouble while trying to create an amazing station, give us a call. We can do it for you! Until next time...Happy Planning!

Picture This

So I know I know it's been over 2 months since my last post. Sorry friends. I've been so overwhelmed with work, but I promise to blog a bit more often. I have had so many brides ask me about photo booths, that I thought I'd post a little something that can be helpful when planning these added details to your big day. I stumbled upon this picture from the Susan Ross Photography website and thought it was perfect to add to this post.

Brides are struggling to make their day unique and there is a total trend regarding these photo booths. Well, my friends, here's an idea without digging deep into your pockets. A simple backdrop can be created at your venue either by you or your photographer (if they are up to it) and you can bring a box of props as well. Just have an hour of your event (during the party) dedicated to having a shoot with your guests. Tell your photographer to take fun pics of your guests during this hour like this bride did with her guests. You can always use a polaroid as well to have on-the-spot shots. This will capture the same idea and your guests will have a silly time, while keeping costs low. Use this pic as inspiration. Start thinking! Start planning! What will your photobooth look like?
