Baby Shower: Blue and Brown

Hi everyone!

A couple of weeks ago, I attended a baby shower with a blue and brown, polka-dot and stripe theme!

Since it was for a close family friend, I agreed to help out~  We had a diaper cake, banner, tissue paper decorations, fruit parfaits, games, gifts, cookies, cake, cupcakes, and more!  Although it was an intimate gathering, there was so much to prepare~

Oh, and the cake and cupcakes were baked and decorated by yours truly!

Although these photos don't do justice to how cute everything was, hope you enjoy!

shimmery gold

There's nothing like glitter and sparkle to make you feel girly and glam. Pink and glittery gold are among the top trends of spring 2011.



I hope this adds a sparkle to the rest of your day!! =)

Award-winning dresses~

With all the Oscar buzz last week, my wonderful friend gave me the great idea of posting dresses from the red carpet!  Since the Oscars are such a formal event, there was bound to be some evening dresses that could inspire wedding gowns, so after hours of searching Yahoo's images (too many beauties to choose from), I found my top three dresses~

You may need to use your imagination to envision these beautiful dresses in the wedding dress color of your choice, but I am confident that should be easy as 1-2-3 for our readers~  =)

In third place, to the left, Halle Berry in Marchesa.  Very luxurious and formal. 
First runner-up is Hailee Steinfeld, also in Marchesa.  Perfect for the cute, more casual wedding. 
Or I think it would be great as a bridesmaid dress too~

And now, for my favorite dress that night...

Mila Kunis in a gorgeous lace Elie Saab~
I think an outdoor wedding, under a huge lush tree would be
the perfect location for a dress like this.

What red carpet dress inspires you?  =)
