Colorful Cookware

Cookware Essentials for your Wedding Registry
While I am a lover of neutrals – see my grey living room or a recent black and white table, pops of color always put a big smile on my face, especially in the summertime. So, I decided to put together a list of some of my favorite cooking and kitchen essentials that I have come across while shopping this Spring. If you are looking for some updates to your kitchen or if you have a bridal shower to attend, these are really cute finds at fabulous prices!

Pink Peony Bridal Bouquets

Is it me, or is everyone’s summer agenda packed with weddings? Well, building off of yesterday’s “Will you be my Bridesmaid” post, I decided to stay with the trend of Weddings for this week’s Friday Fascinations and talk about one of my favorite Wedding details, the Bridal Bouquet! 

Floral décor pulls together the theme and aesthetic of your special day, so choosing the perfect arrangement that fits both your style and color palette is that much more important! It’s safe to say that peonies are undoubtedly one of my favorite flowers {I featured them recently in a Champagne and Peonies Party post here}. They exude a soft and romantic nature that is perfect for weddings, especially Summer Weddings because Peonies are in season from late Spring to early Summer. Peonies are also regarded as an omen of good fortune and prosperity {who knew!}.

So, on the quest to finding the Wedding Bouquet for your big day? Hopefully these photos will serve as the perfect inspiration.

Be my Bridesmaid

Asking your bridesmaids to be a part of your wedding party is such a special moment. It’s a chance to show the people who have been most supportive in your life that you appreciate them and want them to stand alongside you on your big day. If you are lucky enough to live in the same city as this select bunch, I recommend hosting a memorable evening filled with champagne and sweets so you can ask “Will you be my bridesmaid?” face-to-face.

How do I recommend you pull it off without giving away the surprise prior to guests arriving? Call / text / or email each girl individually and say you are having a few people over for cocktails. Maybe makeup a movie on TV you want to watch, an announcement at work you wanted to share, or simply call it a girls night. Don’t mention EVERYONE who is coming… make it seem relaxed like “a few people will try and stop by.”

My favorite details to hosting this party are for your table of course. Champagne is a must and I LOVE the newest collection of Sofia canned champagnes {ie. sold as the Francis Ford Coppola Sofia Mini Blanc de Blancs 4-Pack}. They are pink cans that come with a straw and perfectly sized for each gal to have their own! Then for sweets, I love Macarons {I picked mine up from Laduree}; they look so elegant displayed on a pretty cake stand alongside pink and white cocktail napkins {or better yet, match the color of your napkin to your ‘wedding colors!’}. Once everyone has arrived, it is time for the big announcement. Cheers and relish in the happiness!!
