Hello and Happy New Year! Sorry it’s been so long since I last posted- Wedding season wound down and Holiday party season picked right up! The holidays were a blast, and then we went to California to visit family and here we are!
I also was gearing up to buy a URL and make this blog a little more legit, but unfortunately the site I was hoping to get was renewed by the current owner (who isn’t even using it, boo) so we’ll have to rethink the plan and try again.
I also haven’t posted about my recent adventure at the David Tutera Your Wedding Experience bridal show in Philly! I went along as part of our club’s Wedding Sales Team and got to assist, walk around and check things out, and attend a session with David Tutera and Buddy from Cake Boss! Oh, and they had a cake contest, Sweetheart table contest and more! Watch for another post on that soon.
Today I decided to write a quick post about a continuing trend that you just have to love! I wrote last year about Great Gatsby-esque weddings and parties and how the Roaring 20’s are making a comeback! I started and have continued updating a Pinterest board for Gatsby-themed and black-and-gold-schemed events and I watched with excitement as the trend picked up in weddings throughout the past year where I work! Whether brides and grooms like the theme itself or simply decide to add some classic charm and bling to their events, we’ve seen so many shimmery cake table linens, shiny bridesmaid dresses, beautiful brooch pins on bouquets, flowing floral centerpieces, carefully constructed (and so creative!) cakes, perfect pearls, glimmering garlands, and black, silver, and gold galore! We’ve even seen a vintage car dropping off the bride and groom, bow tie shaped napkins, and a New Years’ Eve soiree fit for a New York City crowd.
I don’t think the shimmer is going anywhere and I’m really not upset about it! I actually have a friend getting married next weekend and she’s going for a similar scheme, plus a beautiful Sangria color for the girls. Im so excited and honored to have helped put together her centerpieces and be helping to set them up the day of the wedding. Watch for pictures in a few weeks.
In the meantime, here are a few photos I’ve taken from recent events that have a Black & Gold and/or Silver scheme, plus a few that combine gold and silver with another bold color:
