Party + Wedding Ideas

You've got a party to throw? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here you’ll find our favorite party ideas. Showers, Birthday parties, Anniversaries, and Weddings all in one spot! Ideas we came up with and links to the best ones on the web.

S’mores Kits

I love the idea of having s’mores at a wedding. So I created this concept for Project Wedding. (The idea works great for a party too.) The bride and groom make their exit then everyone stands around mingling and roasting marshmallows. If you don’t have a venue with firepits you could just use little camp stoves lined up on a table. Check out the rest at Project Wedding.


Wayne Thiebaud Cakes

Love this spread of cakes mimicking a Wayne Thiebaud painting. It is one of those obvious ideas that I’m surprised I haven’t seen it before (or wish I had thought of myself). Lisa, the bride, is a genius.

DIY How to Make a Birdcage Veil

My latest article for Project Wedding just went up. It shows how to make a birdcage veil. I love birdcage veils, they are so sweet and are pretty easy to make. (Isn’t the model pretty? IT is my upstairs neighbor. Very Audrey Hepburnish.)

San Francisco City Hall Wedding

This wedding is perfect. I’m not just being biased because it takes place in my lovely city. Also, for the record, vintage dresses always win. Every time. More photos right here from the new issue of Weddings. (via Snippet & Ink)

(Little known fact: When I was 20 I was an intern at SF City Hall with the events department there. I think it is the most beautiful building in San Francisco and totally worth a visit if you are in town.)

Lemonade Favors

This is a post I did for Project Wedding. Fresh Squeezed Lemonade favors packaged in a pretty Italian bottle (from Ikea!) These would also be really cute for a favor shower. (Plus isn’t that a cute vintage dress? Go Ebay!)
