Here are a few ombre details I’m loving at the moment… {Photos, from top: Pink ballet dresses / teal ombre dress / purple ombre cake / ombre flowers / ombre fabric backdrop / ombre bowls / windsor bench / ombre curtains /ombre dress.} Related posts:Pretty Ombre Esco...

  • Photo credit: People.com I’ve been in love with ombre since I first laid eyes on Gwen Stefani’s pink silk faille John Galliano wedding dress almost 10 years ago. Back then, I had no clue this had a name!  The word ombre comes from fashion and means a graduated variation in color. Basically, a color fades from a light shade to a darker shade gradually or from a dark shade to a light shade of the same color family. Within the last year or so, we’re seeing this more and more in weddings and events. I love some of the cool ways ombre is being incorporated from wedding cakes to ...

So much pretty to show you guys, now I just need to find the time to get it up here! There’s a lot going on behind the scenes, as you can imagine, but all will be revealed in time. ANYWAY, today.

We worked together before, and had such a blast... so there was no way I could turn Phebe down.I'd recently completed two new stationery suites, and Phebe loved my Ombre Chevron suite and asked if we could adapt it to her photo shoot.She challenged me to make a circle menu, something I'd never done before, and we added food cards to the collection.A million and one thank-yous to Henry Photography for taking the time to photograph Phebe's shoot, and to Phebe for asking ...

    If you are all about pink, head over heels for purple or gaga for blue.. there's no reason to add another color to your wedding palette! Ombre is a great way to tie together several shades of one fantastic hue, fading softly from white to pastels, or even to deep, vibrant shades. Just about any wedding element can lend itself to the ombre effect, whether its a gradient of pink flowers or a flirty purple cake that vanishes to white.  Photo Credits: Centerpiece & Ceremony Program via Martha Stewart Weddings, Cake by Maggie Austin Cakes Add ombre to your bridesmaids' dresses, too, for a...

  • A Fashion Friday post will be coming later on for this weekend, but first a trend that I am absolutely LOVING right now!  St. Louis has a great Knot community and on Wednesday evening we had our fabulous Knot Cocktails and Connections night.  The vendors were amazing, and it was such a great night to see others in the industry and network with each other.  I love events where we as professionals can all come together and mingle and just share the love that we all have for this industry. One of the vendors, Whipt Cream, is FABULOUS.  You have seen their cakes on quite a few of my Pizzazzeri...
