Posted by in Our Designs

Justin loves Halloween like most people love Christmas. I love candy corn like most people love chocolate cake. So this is a really fun time of year for the both of us. Yet somehow we’ve managed to not throw a Halloween party in a really long time.

But if you are throwing a Halloween party this year, I’ve found some chic yet fun inspiration for adults. And maybe I can live through you just a little bit.

Spooky chic. There are so many unique and interesting ways to set the mood for your Halloween party. I’m a sucker for feathers and these lace pumpkins are genius.

Wedding Comfort Food Desserts

Posted by in Ask Imbue You, Create the Look, Desserts, Food

I love all the special touches and personal details that couples are adding to their weddings, especially with desserts. I’m a big believer in expressing yourself and your favorite things at your wedding. And what better way to do that than with the food?

With the right presentation any dessert can be “wedding appropriate” enough for your Aunt Edna. These are some of my favorite ways to dress up the tastiest comfort food desserts. Enjoy!

I personally ate a lot of banana pudding as a kid, not a bad childhood at all. As an adult, I’d love this buttered rum version (recipe here) Let’s face it, sometimes the most comforting desserts are the messiest, so if you can make them finger foods or otherwise easy to eat, go for it. And add color for that extra fun factor.

You really can’t go wrong with sticks of sugar. Is it bad to believe that cotton candy is an anytime food? Again, making these easy to eat is the key…and champagne doesn’t hurt either.

S’mores are the ultimate comfort food, aren’t they? The drama of a open flame makes this more of an activity than a dessert at weddings, and super fun too. But if the flame seems too risky for you, what about a s’mores candy bar or s’mores in a jar?

Mexican and Spanish Tile Wedding Inspiration

Posted by in Create the Look

It’s no secret that I love tile inspired design. Our very first design that launched our wedding stationery business was inspired by centuries old Persian tile architecture. And Justin and I continue to reinterpret tile in new invitation designs.

With the popularity of weddings featuring tile work, Mexican weddings, Spanish weddings, Moroccan weddings, I wanted to share some ideas for incorporating it in your wedding.

{Designer Secret}  The joy of tile is that they are different, from other design elements and often from each other. So while it makes sense to coordinate your tile designs, don’t feel compelled to have everything match exactly. One element of the tile design on your stationery can be on the cake or table numbers, for instance. Or you can choose different tile designs with the same color scheme.

I love these ways of incorporating real tiles into weddings. And using tile house numbers (3rd photo) as table numbers…genius! You can even paint table numbers yourself for a personalized and cost saving approach.

Changing the colors can easily change the tone of tiles at your wedding. Couples often ask me if they can do tiles with their romantic themed Mexican wedding. And I say yes. It’s all in the color scheme: pinks, yellows, oranges, corals, lavender. The key to a romantic look with these colors on tile is low contrast. So pick colors that naturally flow together.

Surprise details are fun, like these awesome tile cookies (top) and hair pins. So the top tiles are to eat and the bottom ones are to give away. It’s always a great idea to find ways for your guests to take home the fun and theme of your wedding. DIY tutorial to make these favor tiles.
