Glam Peacock Masquerade Wedding Inspiration

Celebrating with a Styled Shoot

We are so excited to finally share the Glam Peacock Masquerade Styled Shoot on our blog! This has been one of our favorite shoots to date with it’s a perfect combination of our love for vintage and modern styles. The glamorous shoot took place at the historic DIME Building as part of a celebration of the one year anniversary of the Detroit Rising Tide Society. We had a blast working with all the ladies and were honored to be included in the shoot.

Design Inspiration

The inspiration for this styled shoot all began when Lynsey stumbled upon a set of gorgeous turquoise and gold peacock plates at a local store. The design concept was expanded after a visit to our favorite linen shop, Special Occasions East. They have so many beautiful options, narrowing it down was not an easy choice! In the end, we decided on a gorgeous metallic coral linen with teal napkins and turquoise chair sashes. To give the shoot a more glamorous feel, we added lots of gold accessories and details. Some of our favorite decor accessories included the crystal cake stands, vintage gold silverware, and mirrored side table.

Sweets and Treats

One of the highlights of this glamorous styled shoot was the amazing dessert table, with desserts from Bella e Dolce Cakes! Erin made a custom cake that included a masquerade cake topper, gold lace accents and vertical pearl appliques. She also created mini-tarts, cake truffles and macarons that were included on the dessert table. Gummy bears and chocolates were also included on the mirrored gold table to create a mini sweets display.

WACC Golf Outing

Our First Corporate Golf Outing

We are very excited to share one of our corporate events from earlier in July! This year we were honored to be part of the Williamston Area Chamber of Commerce Golf Outing. Our role in the event included styling the banquet room and day of coordination. Our friends at Janus Insurance Agency and Mortgage Explorers co-hosted the event and were kind enough to invite us to participate.

As always, our favorite part of the event was the custom golf themed dessert table we created. The table featured cupcakes, sugar cookies and dessert shooters by Sweet Kathy’s. We also created a custom distressed wood backdrop so we could hang sponsor logos and event signage. We also loved the golf ball centerpieces by Delta Flowers and the custom seersucker napkins Special Occasions East created for us.

A huge thank you to Kristyn LaPres for the beautiful photos! We couldn’t be more happy with how this event turned out and can’t wait to work with all of our wonderful vendors again!

Great Gatsby Anniversary Party at the Grand Ledge Opera House

A Milestone Anniversary

Back in October we had the opportunity to help Mattie and Jimmie celebrate their 50th anniversary. It was a pleasure to work with the Brown Family again. We are always honored when a client chooses us to help them celebrate an event as special as an anniversary. The classic Great Gatsby theme was perfect for this event!

Creating the Great Gatsby Theme

The Grand Ledge Opera House was the perfect location for this event. The tall ceilings and beautiful balcony provided the perfect backdrop for this Great Gatsby themed anniversary party. To transform the Opera House into an elegant ballroom we used tall white feather centerpieces, dramatic black linens and gold chiavari chairs. Patterned gold vintage chargers decorated the tables and featured custom sugar cookie favors on each place setting.

The art deco cake by Bella e Dolce made for a stunning focal point in the center of the ballroom. The cake design perfectly captured the Great Gatsby theme with geometric shapes, pearls, feathers and fringe. We also added some bling to a fringe skirt and used a black sequin linen to really set off the table.
