A Vintage+Modern Engagement Party

Vintage Mod Black & White Engagement Party

Loving the sweet simplicity and creative touches in this vintage-mod engagement party, which was designed by Shannon Leahy and hosted in a San Francisco, CA loft.

The graphic designer in me adores the cool typographic poster hanging on the wall, which coordinates with the “When did you meet Caroline & Dixon?” guest activity… but the kitschy collection of borrowed cake toppers is such a fun idea too. They look especially great atop the stacked “oreo cookie cakes“! (I seriously want to pull one of those Oreos right through the screen right now too… lunchtime is calling!)

Colorful & Creative “Race Car” Birthday Party

Amazing Cake

{posted by HWTM contributor Jessica Wilcox}
Being a Mommy of three boys, I love to see creative and colorful birthday parties for BOYS. This incredibly inspiring Race Car second birthday party sent in by Gwynn of Gwynn Wasson Designs gets my creative wheels turning, so to speak! From the super fun “race car” themed activities to the delicious red & yellow dessert table Gwynn thought of everything…this party takes the checkered flag!!

No birthday party is complete without an amazing cake (or cupcakes, which happen to be my personal favorite), and this party is no exception. Gwynn did a wonderful job adding creative touches throughout such as the race car speedway and the blow-up race car filled with cushy pillows. I’m also loving the super fun bubble tins and crayon caddie party favors that the kids can enjoy after the party is over! What little boy wouldn’t love this fun birthday party?!

Charming Farmhouse Brunch Baby Shower

Farmhouse Brunch Baby Shower

There’s something so warm and inviting about this darling FARMHOUSE BRUNCH Baby Shower styled by Trish from Frilly Milly Events! And with a menu offering up creative treats like tiny cups of syrup topped with french toast triangles, maple bacon skewers, donut hole “trees”, heath bar coffee cake, and more – better add “mouth watering” to the list of party adjectives too!

I actually don’t think there’s a more fitting way to describe this lovely celebration than in Trish’s own words: “…a “farmhouse brunch” full of the goodness of a hearty brunch like your grandmother would make, but with the dainty-ness that honors the birth of a tiny baby girl.”

Lauren & Jeff’s Whimsical Kite Wedding

Whimsical Kite Themed Wedding

The first time I stumbled upon this colorful, creative, and wonderfully whimsical wedding in Jesi Haack‘s portfolio I seriously gasped (as in audibly). I can’t imagine any other reaction to that amazing paper flower/pinwheel/kite installation on the ceremony arbor though… can you? =)

Beautifully captured by Ashley Rose and coordinated/designed by Jesi Haack, this gorgeous & unique Kite-Inspired Wedding is full of lovely, playful details (including a handcrafted “kite guestbook” and party blowers!) and – simply put – looks like a complete blast! Check out the fun, eclectic look to the tables and the fabulous balloon rainbow backdrop behind Sweet & Saucy‘s dessert buffet!
