Parties: Niajah is a Big Girl Now

SO, uhhhm lean in…

It is totally okay to be super duper girlie and want a super duper girlie Sweet 16 AND have JunePlumm Events plan it for you. This is what Niajah wanted and THIS is what Niajah got. I LOVED that Niajah and her mom, Natasha, were not afraid to be frilly and girlie and pink and FUN! It’s even more awesome that I learned that New Jersey has an entire music scene that I was not ready for but I can dig! (someone slide me a mix tape please). Anyway, take a look at some of the highlights of this Super Sweet 16 wonderfully captured by Amy Anaiz Photography. Just wait till you see how STUNNING Niajah looked:

Pretty Little Things: Blooming Beauties

It’s spring time in New York, and aside from the weather being completely bipolar it is a great time for some pretty blooms. And because of this bipolar weather ( I’m not complaining) we are starting to see some of our favorite blooms peak earlier than usual. What I am mainly referring to are Cherry Blossoms. Typically we see the heights of these flowery beauties in mid April -May. BUT here we are in March and they are popping up all over the place and completely blanketing homeowners lawns.

Because of the color and fullness they are a favorite of mine for springtime weddings. Here’s why

I love that in a centerpiece it gives you a feel of having an outdoor wedding indoors. And let’s not stop there, cherry blossoms are great for your stationary, cakes as well as favors. So feel free to spread the spring time love throughout your wedding.

Planning: The Other Flower (again)

I often look back at previous blog posts to see what was on my mind in the past. Well in true form I checked my blog to see what I was talking about one year ago today and saw that on September 23, 2009 I was talking about carnations. I have grown very fond of these flowers over the years and every year my admiration for them grows much stronger. I know they do not get as much love as roses, and orchids or other more “fashionable” flowers but a cluster of carnations can make a very beautiful statement.

Take a stroll down memory lane with me and see what we thought of carnations then (and now).
In addition, below are examples of how I have used simple carnations in two recent events.

How have you used carnations in your event?

Planning: Aisle Do!

One of the most important parts of a wedding should be the ceremony. Afterall that is when you exchange your vows and officially become husband and wife united in marriage. Before you take your first step to becoming husband and wife, here are some photo inspirations so you make that first step in style:

  • Floral Design
  • Travel & tourism

Pretty Little Things: Blooms – A Breath of Fresh Flowers

No longer just the “old style” filler flower, Baby’s Breath used on its own can create a fresh looking statement in your event decor. Take a look at some fabulous ways in which you can make Baby’s Breath wow’em in your centerpiece, bouquets and even cake adornments:

Have you ever considered or used Baby’s Breath in your floral decor?

Planning: The “Other” Flower

Don’t pass on carnations just yet. The fact that they are inexpensive should be a good enough reason for you to give it second look…okay maybe a third look. My point is, it doesn’t have to just be the “cheap” flower. When arranged correctly they can be a welcomed addition to your event. Take a look at these inspirations below:

Now that you have taken another look at Carnations, would you use it in your event?

Pretty Little Things: Fridays for the Fellas – Boutonniere

I know I am guilty of this myself but women seem to get all the love at weddings. They get the bling, the dress, the flowers and the attention. And what do the fellas get a suit and a boutonniere. You know the little rose bud with babies breath. Picture it, I will give you a minute………… yeah boring huh. A red rose and babies breath?…(shivers). Long gone are those days, now the fellas are getting some well needed shine and the boutonniere is actually a staple that you WANT to pay attention to.

Take a look at these stunners ( no babies breath here):

You go Fellas!!!

Planning: The Center of Attention

Looking to spruce up your centerpiece by getting away from your typical clear vase? Your search doesn’t have to be as stressful as you may think. Supermarkets, retail stores, local shops, vintage shops, they are all around you and full of useful vase-like materials. I recently coordinated a wedding where the vision required a “tropical look” and I wanted to stay within those parameters. I was fortunate enough to find exactly what I was looking for in the last place I expected to find it, and when I wasn’t even looking for it. In Marshall’s and Party City. So don’t be hesitant to step outside of your comfort zone and begin sourcing not-so-typical locations for your event inspirations.

Below are a few examples of non-clear vases to jog your creative juice and get you to think outside the box:
