inspiration for celebration

Fresh & Gorgeous Garden Party Bridal Shower

I am in LOVE with the look of this Fresh & Gorgeous Garden Party Bridal Shower styled by the incredibly talented Kristi Murphy, whose site is seriously amazing and if you haven’t already checked out her beautiful designs & super creative DIYs, you are totally missing out. Anyways, what I love about this party look is how uncluttered everything is. Sometimes it can be a little too easy to go overboard when trying to fill empty spaces, but Kristi finds the perfect balance every time! Filing this one away for future inspiration ;).

P.S. Make sure to read through her party details below for links to some FREE printables & DIY tutorials to recreate this look!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Lovely purple bouquet topped naked cake + bright macarons & colorfully tipped white meringues
– DIY flower painted wooden chargers + custom designed banner & scalloped cupcake toppers
– Black & white table runner with pops of bright pink ribbon & custom photo coasters
– Paper flower studded green topiary background + simple green grass centerpieces

Woodland Meadow Fairy Birthday Soiree

We see so many adorable fairy parties here at HWTM, but this Woodland Meadow Fairy Birthday Soiree boasts an entire town-like setup for all of the little fairies to enjoy! Everything was beautifully styled by the birthday girl’s mom, owner of Defining Moments Stationery & photographed by Jessica Little Photography, but another big hero of the day was the birthday girl’s dad, who hand-crafted all of the little wooden tables & chairs! Truly a family effort (and triumph!)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Fairy wings, pink tutus & wands for party guests + birdhouse painting & a fairy dust station
– Pink ombre butterfly cake with mini green banner + pink ‘Never Grow Up’ punch & paper rose jar lids
– A pink sweets dessert table with beaded table cloth & large fake flower backdrop
