Flowers: Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas are undoubtedly one of my favorite flowers. Simply beautiful, I love the mound shape of these blooms.They are a perfect accent for any event or just decorating your home. I actually planted my first hydrangea this spring. Luckily, it has survived the overbearing heat of Georgia, I can't wait to see what it produces next year!

Inspiration Board: Tropical Fucshia

As Summer winds down, and Fall begins to rear its head, we tend to migrate to richer color schemes for events. Right now, I seem to be gravitating to a tropical vibe with hints of goldenrod and orange, but grounded by deep fucshia. The inspiration board above highlights some of my favorite applications of this tropical color theme.

Vendor Spotlight: Confection Perfection

My gorgeous wedding cake by Confection Perfection.

I had the opportunity to work with Confection Perfection a couple of years ago for my wedding. The experience was wonderful. I had always been of the mindset that wedding cakes almost always look better than they taste. So imagine how surprised I was when I took my first bite at my Confection Perfection cake testing. Hands down, it was the best wedding cake I'd tasting in my life! And to top it off the prices are very reasonable. My cake (shown above) was a wonderful complement to my wedding day decor and guest compliments abounded.

If you're in the Metro Atlanta area and are looking for excellent cake vendors at a great price point, I would definitely recommend that you check them out.

Inspiration Board: Navy and Green

At this moment, I'm loving the traditional color combination of navy blue and green. There is a certain crisp freshness about it that screams classic and welcoming. This colors play beautifully together in both fashion and events. How do you plan to work these colors this fall?
