Cakes and desserts will have an artistic flair to their edible displays.  Macaroon towers provides height and drama while Croquembouche is elegant and enticing.  And let’s not forget the ever favorite cake pop displays, which can be ornate and lavish.  The visual interest will make these displays fun for your guests.

Grazing tables have been around for awhile, however they will become more elaborate.  My favorite include a wonderful array of breads, cheeses, meats, nuts, fruits and some sweet delights for sure.

Interactive Food Stations are staples for any wedding.  Entertaining your guests while they make a choice of food options keeps them engaged and makes their experience memorable.

Floral displays will be dramatic with gold rings and wooden beams.  They add that touch of drama you want for interest and depth.

Custom signs are always a necessity for your guests.  This includes seating charts and mirrors, letter boards and inspirational escort cards.  Being creative is the best part for brides and grooms, as you get to show your personality.  Our recent clients traveled a lot and chose to use custom postcards for their guests escort cards.  It was personal to the couple and so much fun for their guests.

Copper will be oh so popular this wedding season.  Copper adds a modern touch and is so versatile with so many color schemes, including “Pantone’s Color of the Year” of Coral.  Whether it’s Coral or your favorite shade of Lilac or Pale Pink, Copper has the ability to incorporate itself effortlessly.

Centerpieces in wooden boxes will be popular and are chic.  They are simply so versatile.  They work well with weddings which are elegant, rustic or simply romantic.  They offer natural elements including plants, succulents, flowers, crystals and stones.

Favors are always a question I receive from clients. Should I or shouldn’t I?  Favors are still very popular, in particular edible favors.  Guests love something they can eat and enjoy.  So when thinking of favors don’t be afraid to think outside of the box with options like popcorn, maple syrups, spices, or oils.  Truffles are always a great favor, but thinking outside the box makes that favor fabulous!

So when planning your wedding, be sure it reflects you and is personal.  This is your day to share with family and friends and it should always be about you as a couple.

Happy planning!

Gold Shoes

Pantone’s Color for the 2014 wedding season is Radiant Orchid. Although purple and violet colors have been used for spring and summer weddings in the past, reinventing your color scheme and being creative will make you stand out from weddings gone by.  Be creative and bring your colors in with your linens, chair covers and sashes, your cake table and gift tables, candles and centerpieces….if you can dream it, it likely comes in your color.  Be daring this wedding season and see how beautiful your wedding day can be.
