Lovella Loves…

The idea of asking bridal shower guests to sketch a “high fashion bridal look” for the bride’s big day, like a bride did in this photo captured by Brookelyn Photography. Not only is it a fun activity, but the sketches are beautiful keepsakes for the bride. In the wedding documented on Style Me Pretty, the bride noted that each guest received a fashion model template with swatches of fabric and paper to sketch then customize a look for the bride’s big day. We adore it.

Heavenly Couture Confections

It’s true, we’re a bit couture crazy over here. We love (and sell) couture bridal gowns, and we appreciate gorgeously-designed cakes and cupcakes. We also love any confections – cookies, French macarons, cake pops, chocolates or tarts – that are so finely-crafted that to call them anything but couture would be a crime. However, admittedly, sometimes all it takes is a clean, chic look, or one simple fabulous embellishment plucked on top, to make a sweet delight “couture” in our book. Our advice? Display accordingly! Scroll down for some sweet inspiration.     Photo/Baker Credits: 1 Elizabeth In Love / So Baked / Via *** 2 Impulse Photography 3 & 4 nbarrett photography / Layered Bake Shop / Via *** 5 The Caketress. 6 Elizabeth In Love / So Baked / Via *** 7 Big City Little Treats 8 Maki’s Cakes / Via *** 9 Vicky Starz / The Caketress […]

Floral Love: Tulips

Some may say all of one thing is boring, but when it comes to tulips that simply doesn’t apply. This is the third up in a series of floral posts, after roses and peonies. Below you’re going to see many: a. gorgeous colors b. fabulous ideas (wouldn’t the tulip stationery make for a fabulous bridal shower gift?) c. Pinterest-worthy images. Some facts about the flower: Ottoman Empire: where commercial cultivation began. Tulip festivals are held around the world, and notably in Michigan, Iowa and Washington in the United States. Tulips are in the same family as lilies. 3,000: estimated varieties. The Netherlands: so-called tulip capital of the world. Enjoy the inspiration!     Photo Credits: 1 Cupcakes and Cashmere 2 Tara Leigh Photography / Via *** 3 Via *** 4 Bouquet by Beautiful Blooms / Laura Novak Photography / Via *** 5 Via *** 6 Connie Cupcake. 7 Yellow Door […]
