Color Craving

I just got a craving, a craving for tangerine and not the fruit the color combo. I believe inspiration comes from the most unique places, in this case my cat. He is a beautiful orange tabby with bright green eyes. Looking at him just now made me think "You would make such a fun color combo for a spring wedding!". Poor cat.

Here's a little inspiration to brighten your day along with this amazing sunshine!

January LWEP social

Tuesday night we held our first Lakeshore Wedding & Event Professionals (LWEP) meeting in Holland. Above & Beyond Banquets and Catering was generous enough to host us both for the venue, The Willow Room, and the hors d'oeuvres. And can I just say that the Mushroom and Tomato Bruschetta was to die for?

This group is open to anyone in the wedding and event industry looking to make connections, build relationships and all in all just have a nice night out with colleagues every other month or so. It is a free group, no association dues or annual fees. We try to keep each event free of charge or a very minimal cost depending on the venue and bar situation. The events are very informal, just an opportunity to mingle and exchange business cards.

The LWEP group will be focused on the areas along the lake shore from Muskegon to South Haven (or further if requested). If you are interested in a group like this but are in the Grand Rapids area, there is a chapter located there as well. The Grand Rapids chapter is known as WMWEP, West Michigan Wedding & Event Professionals and meets the opposite months of LWEP.

If you are interested in becoming part of either group please contact me for further information or check out the Facebook fan pages.

Spring Daffodils

(Baker unknown)

I just came across this cake on Cake Wrecks blog and immediately fell in love with. The only problem is that I don't think I could cut into it! How perfect would it be for a bridal shower or an intimate garden wedding?

Spring on the Mind

It's probably a little early in winter for me to start dreaming about Spring but I just can't help it. The smell of fresh grass and spring rain....ahhhh. Of course, thinking about Spring makes me think of bright and cheerful color palettes as well. Here are a couple of my favorite color combos from the past couple of years.

Sage green, light pink and hot pink

Turquoise blue and light pink

Midori green and hot pink

Light pink with accents of sage green

Are there any favorite color combinations you think of during the spring?
