éclairs for breakfast: sweet camping baby shower

Here is a seriously cute and clever themed baby shower... everything is about camping! Designed and styled by a very clever team of ladies, and the mother-to-be's best friends, Sweet and Saucy Shop, Jesi Haack Weddings, Gabriel Ryan Photography, JL Designs and Posh Paperie, every detail is so great. 

The ladies created two yummy food zones... one with healthy lunch snacks and the other a delicious dessert bar full of goodies. The lunch snack table had a selection of wraps, berries and a garden salad. The yummy wraps had some of the most adorable party picks ever including mini camp fires and sleeping bags. 

The dessert bar included some of the Sweet and Saucy Shop's signature mini desserts such as mini s'more tarts and sugar cookies as well as some creative new ones including double chocolate mousse mini trifles and hotchoco spoons in nutella and s'more flavours. Melody also created a gorgeous two tiered cake with a intricate wood grain pattern and tiny fondant camping props. 

Rustic dinning tables were also styled with fresh flowers, camping lanterns, glass mason jars, flannel napkins and pine cones.

pretty love: rustic and pretty wedding

This beautiful and whimsical wedding inspiration shoot is so unique and unlike anything I have ever seen before. The bohemian theme details are all so pretty... vintage inspired wedding gown, oversized and fresh blooms, delicate crockery and rustic reception and table settings. The vintage lantern lined path is just magical.

wedding love: a colourful and cute wedding

Today's cute wedding love is for a colourful summery wedding. There is brilliant pops of bright colour everywhere... from the multi-coloured bridesmaids, the bright groomsmen neck ties, the beautiful fresh bouquets and centrepieces, the paper goods and the sweets table. 

The bride's gown was simply stunning. The bows on the front, the low back and the soft fabric layers all make up a very pretty and unique wedding gown. The page boys are pretty cute to. Hope you enjoy!
