Design + Decor + Dessert

Do you know the song from "The Sound of Music", it goes.........these are a few of my favorite things?   the lyrics are.....I simply remember my favorite things, then I don't feel so bad.

Well, here are a few of my favorite things-

Design..... my definition: taking a story and making it visual and touchable, giving it a scent, setting it to music, and making it taste amazing.

Decor......The look, the touch, the feel, anything that transforms you into a time or place.  An element, or smell, lighting, the texture of a certain fabric, the way a ribbon falls just so.  All of these things and so much more can transport me into a special space and time  The 1920's or 1890's, it really doesn't matter, because if you are surrounded with decor and color from the era, you can imagine yourself there.  Add some great music and take a bite out of time.

Desserts......without the perfect cuisine and a decadent dessert, the transformation is not complete.  Rich, dark, and spicy, or crisp, light and juicy, whatever the time and place, there is a combination of tastes and textures that will send you back into time or transport you to a new and exotic destiny. 

The Phoenix Bridal Show was amazing, we met so many eclectic and fabulous brides and their love stories were all so unique.  Definitely the most interesting group I've had the pleasure of visiting with so far.  Just a few of the themes in the works- Alice in Wonderland Wedding, Steam punk Wedding, A Halloween Wedding based on The Shining (the movie), and an East meets West Wedding. Sounds like a lot of fun, and themes are shining through for 2012, for sure. 

I think it's important to make sure that your wedding says a lot about who you are, and it's got to be a great party.  My best advise is to keep it elegant, not too "kitchy", and always keep in mind the "experience"  What experience do you want your guests to have as you tell your love story?  But, most of all, what experience do you and your new husband want to have?  Keep this always in sight as you design, plan and execute your perfect day.  And if you find that you need us, we love to help!
