Inspiration Board: Yuliya's Wedding

Yuliya is the cutest bride-to-be we've ever worked with. Everything about her personality exudes cheerfulness and sincerity. She literally got engaged last weekend and we couldn't wait to get started in the planning. (She is also aiming for a February 2010 wedding so the clock is already ticking.)

This lovely bride was envisioning pink, pink, and more pink, candles everywhere, and the most romantic day you've ever seen. Here is our inspiration board to get started:

Inspiration Board: Hunter's 18th Birthday

Maybe you'll forgive us for skipping this weeks' Feature Friday if we bribe you with the inspiration board for Hunter's 18th Birthday?

Think: Bodega Bay, fresh fish, a red, light blue and navy color palette, and a fun, relaxing weekend by the sea...

Invitation by Rosebud Cards, fabric image found here, all other photographs courtesy of Martha Stewart Online.

Feature Friday

So there is not actually a feature today... BUT we have several fabulous companies to introduce you to in the next few weeks and a slew of DIY projects to share.

Coming soon are photos of Hunter's 18th Birthday-- a beachy fish-fry happening in Bodega Bay next weekend.

Remember to email us or comment here if you know of a great company we can feature. Happy planning!

  1. Black and white damask complimented by light pink.
  2. Pink gerbera daisies in clusters of white vases.
  3. Black and pink candy station for guests.
  4. Individual onesie cookie favors at each place setting.

"I'm Amanda Krueger and this is Bake It Pretty, a magical wonderland of clever and nostalgic supplies for baking, crafting and decorating. This little cottage industry began in 2006 under the name A. Bel Emporium on the popular Etsy online marketplace. The success of that shop sparked the creation of the new, bigger and better website you see here. We are pleased to continue offering the same, charming miniatures and baking supplies as before...plus much more! Joined by my husband Mike, and my sister Kristina, this family business will continue to grow and evolve.
Everything you see here is hand-selected or designed by us, and wrapped-up just for you at our headquarters in Asheville, North Carolina."

These polka dot cupcake wrappers are adorable and would add a punch of color to any cupcake.

Click on each style for individual color options and assortments."Cupcakes in polka dot wrappers, sitting pretty on top of decorative doileys?
