…So Fitting For The Soon-To-Be Wife!
Sure, times have changed. Much of what used to be tradition had gone out the window. Poof, gone! Just like that. However, nothing says we can’t bring a little bit of it back, right? I mean, they do it all the time when it comes to fashion, so why not bring it home too?
This week over at the OneWed Savvy Scoop Blog, I guest blogged about a theme to bring out the pinup housewife in all of you…so of course I had to share! If you’re planning a bridal shower, get ready to get girly…
Consider serving cherry pie instead of cake and grab some Coca Cola inspiration from my friend Kim over at Head Of The Table. Or, customize your own bottles with Jones Soda! To personalize, use similar sayings like shown on the gift bags above or even upload vintage themed photos to your bottle labels.
Thank your guests or pamper the bride with pretty little pinup style bath products from one of my favorite stores, Margarita Bloom!
I especially adore how serving utensils were used for the centerpieces – what a great idea! After the shower, let the bride take them home so she can work on becoming her own domestic diva self. Don’t forget the apron!

Love you, sister!!! xo -Jaim
…And Celebrate Your Marriage Year After Year!
There is a reason why you picked those wedding colors of yours. For some reason, they called out to you. Whether it’s because it reflects your personality, your style or you just love the look, let the colors that inspired you for your wedding inspire you for your home as well!
Turn your registry experience into fun by getting creative with it, like you did with your wedding planning!
…Inspired By Agent Provocateur!
I adore every little detail created, all the way down to how the slices of cake coordinate with the black and white boxes – does it get any more fabulous?
Get inspired to create your own fantasy shower by clicking HERE! Or, just host a fun girls night in. Being girly is always something to celebrate…so grab your girls and get planning!
Thanks for Moments By Morgan for originally turning me on to this event!
Ok, so maybe you don’t actually want sugar poured on you at your wedding (you can save that for your honeymoon!), but you can definitely cover a rockin’ dessert table with it! If you’re planning a white wedding, stick within the theme using sugar treats and sweets like New York event planner Amy Atlas did in the pictures below…
Maybe you could even put signs on your white sweet table with lyrics from your favorite songs about sugar or white weddings. Think “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard, “White Wedding” by Billy Idol, “Sugar, Sugar” by The Archies…what other songs can you think of? Have a little fun, your guests will get a kick out of it!

…A Cocktail Reception Inspired By The Chocolate Martini!
This week, Polka Dot Bride featured an awesome inspiration board for a wedding inspired by the chocolate martini. You know I’m all about chocolate martinis (it’s one of my favorite cocktails!), so I couldn’t help but share her creativity!

This would be a great theme for any wedding, especially one set in the Fall or Winter to warm and cozy things up a bit. Besides, who doesn’t love a chocolate martini, right?
Sometimes, I swear it would be a more peaceful world if everyone indulged in chocolate from time to time. So go ahead – indulge in some chocolate. Of course, drink responsibly! Cheers!
More From My Sister’s Bridal Shower…
Looking for ideas to quench any bridal thirst? For the bridal shower we recently hosted for my sister, we decided to have a little fun with the cocktails and beverages by dressing them up a bit!
Take a look…

Previously, I showed you the fabulous customized Jones Soda bottles we served. Well, as if they weren’t adorable enough, we also decorated straws with white paper confetti flowers for guests to drink with! I cannot take all of the credit for that idea, however – as the crafty ladies over at Prim & Pixie originally inspired me to create with images of their butterfly straws. It seemed like an easy enough DIY project, so you know I had to do it!
Beverages also included a pink grapefruit champagne punch and a bowl of mimosas. Flutes were rimmed with pink sugar and filled with cotton candy, which dissolved as guests poured their punch ~ for a little added sweetness! We also created pink and orange beaded wine charms for each flute glass, with a heart-shaped charm in the middle that said, “LOVE”.
