2016 Color of the Year – Two Blended Shades for the First Time – Announced by Pantone and the Top 10 Colors for Spring 2016

Introducing the 2016 color of the year announced by Pantone, this is the first time they announce a blend of two shades as the color of the year, the ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY. Rose Quartz Pantone 13-1520 & Serenity PANTONE 15-3919.  Of course these are beautiful shades but you definitely need to be careful how they are used for your wedding, to make sure it doesn’t look like a baby shower theme…. Lol.  


Here are a few samples of how these shades will work great together found on Tulle & Chantilly


The top 10 colors are:

Love these vintage Christmas Trees!


Call me crazy this year, but I absolutely love these vintage style Christmas Trees in buckets, tins and baskets.  They are simple, easy to put together and easy to take down after the holidays. All found on Pinterest of course.

These table top trees are also super cute.  Great idea to decorate for a party or even a winter wedding.

Loved this look so much had to have them this year for our Vintage Christmas look.

Love my little trees this year.

Happy Holidays!

Bridal Shower Luncheon

Today we had the bridal shower for our next upcoming bride. Despite the pouring rain we had today in South Florida, this location was perfect (Brio Tuscan Grille, located in Dolphin Mall). Food was amazing, service was excellent and we had a great turnout.

 Flowers by Marta Q. Villar Floral Design.

Hand made paper flowers created by Fortuna Events were placed on each place setting as part of the guests favors, along with nail polishes inside paper lantern boxes with a small thank you tag.


Menus were created by Fortuna Events to match the invitations that went out to guests and placed in pocket folded napkins.

Nail polishes in the pink and coral colors were placed in these adorable lantern style paper boxes and placed at each plate setting as additional guest favors.

Few of the games played throughout the luncheon for great prizes.


Our dessert table held assorted desserts, macaroons, fruit and key lime pie tarts, and of course a piña colada and orange cake by Eddas Cakes decorated by Fortuna Events.
