I found this stunning picture on The Party Dress and loved it so much I went on the search for more gorgeous peacock finds. The colors are rich and beautiful — perfect for fall without being the traditional palette. I love the jeweled napkin ring above and am wondering if I can recreate on my own, could be a fun project. Plum, fuscia, emerald green, burgundy, cerulean blue… all beautiful!
So much inspiration for any kind of celebration — I would love to see this turned into a beautiful bridal shower! Follow the jump for the where-to-find for this inspiration board. Read more »

Carnations really don’t deserve that bad rap they’ve been receiving all of these years… florists, party planners and brides alike frown at the idea of including carnations in centerpieces or displays (you know you’ve been there…). But really, carnations are a pretty ideal bud. They can be found in a selection of vibrant colors at almost any time of the year and are by far one of the cheaper stems on the market (probably due to that above mentioned bad rap).
‘Lollipop’ or ball centerpieces are one of my favorite ways to introduce carnations into modern tablescapes. By using floral foam, you can take advantage of a carnation’s full foliage by clipping them short and placing them tightly together to form a floral structure. I love this with wreaths, half circles and full balls. When placed a top risers, it creates a stunning effect.

Since these little brownie pops were so fun to make, I thought I’d share a quick How-To. I used rainbow nonpareils (round sprinkles) for dipping, but any candied sugar or colored sprinkles would do the trick to match your theme (mini Halloween pumpkins, anyone?)
Begin with a baked brownie pan (standard brownie mix or purchase pre-made Costco bites) and use a small round cookie cutter to shape lollipops. Brownie pan should be between 1/2 – 3/4″ thick for the best lollipop shape. Read more »
