Bright & Bold Brunch Inspiration Shoot!


Today I have a re-post from Kristina Curtis Photography's blog of this picture perfect brunch inspiration shoot that was featured in the 2015 issue of Utah Valley Bride magazine!  We had so much fun creating these small breakfast plates (which I will focus on more in a post soon) - and the bold palette was a perfect punch to this early morning fête.  Check it out!

Charlotte’s Web Birthday Party!


Today, I have a simply AMAZING birthday party to share with you!  The lucky birthday girl celebrated her 1st birthday in style - complete with a Charlotte's Web theme that was carried throughout the STUNNING details!  We loved the "state fair" foods, dessert bar (complete with cotton candy!), petting zoo, and fun gingham prints.  A perfect day for this sweet girl!  Check it out! CharlottesWeb6 The birthday girl took her chance to meet a greet all of the animals - from the miniature horse, the sheep, to the goats - she made friends with all of them!  So cute! CharlottesWeb3 This menu was full of state fair classics which we totally loved.  Grilled corn on the cob, pulled pork sandwiches, pigs in blankets, PB&Js, coleslaw, and homestyle mac n' cheese - YUM! CharlottesWeb4 We loved cutting the PB&Js into fun shapes!  Perfect for the kids - who loved them, I must say! CharlottesWeb Isn't this dessert table cute?  Our signature housemade gourmet popcorn, cotton candy with a nod to the namesake of Charlotte's Web, and that AMAZING cake and cupcakes - made by our awesome pastry chef, Jocelyn Ball, by the way! CharlottesWeb2 Check out the detail on those cupcakes and the cake topper!  Such a perfect addition to this party! CharlottesWeb5 This favor table was so cute and we loved the fair ribbons that were part of the decor.  The details are what make the party theme, for sure! CharlottesWeb7 Isn't she just the cutest birthday girl ever?  I love her cute red boots and her hugging the goat is just ADORABLE! CharlottesWeb8 CharlottesWeb9 What a FANTASTIC party!  Thank you to the Mellors for letting us take part in this special milestone of Charlotte's life!  It was such a wonderful day and we look forward to all Miss Charlotte's birthdays to come!  Happy celebrating everyone!
