Decorative paper is one of my absolute favorite party decor elements because it’s such a high-impact, budget-friendly way to introduce all sorts of wonderful patterns and colors into an event! This gorgeous baby shower by the talented Aisha of Dooby Design Group is a perfect example of this! Aisha played up the sweet “Life is […]

Bow-ties adorned everything from mason jars and flower arrangements to the darling ruffle cake, sugar cookies, and stationery. I think my personal favorite detail has to be the ultra […]

Absolutely LOVING this Golf-themed Dessert Table created by Michele from Crazy for Design! Although this table really could work for both men and women that love to golf, it seems like there are so few party themes that really work well for men in particular (they don’t usually appreciate all the fun flowers, rhinestones & […]

If your 21st birthday didn’t look like this, don’t feel bad… mine didn’t either! =) But that doesn’t mean we can’t ooh and aah over the absolutely stunning florals, glam crystal chandeliers, and cool “restaurant-turned-nightclub” atmosphere from Arielle’s party… and dream about our own milestone birthday (or wedding, or anniversary, or _______ ) being quite […]
