Thursday Theme – GOLD

Oh my… do I have some LUSCIOUS photos to share today.  We all know gold goes with weddings like cookies go with milk – it’s really hard to have one without the other!  I have found some incredible GOLDEN inspirations for you.

From BBJ Linen comes a small but FAB gallery of gold wedding ideas.  Check out this sheer gold set-up.  Isn’t it amazing how a little thing such as chair bows make such a big impact?  Diva Entertains offers similar ones HERE.

From once wed, just look at this milk and honey (aka gold) wedding tablescape:

Gold wedding cake, anyone?  From Brides.com and America’s Most Beautiful Cakes: There are 25 beautiful cakes to scroll through.  Not all are gold, but all are *fabulous*!

For a completely unique bouquet, go with a gold brooch and floral bouquet!  From wedding chicks.com, a couple of ideas on how to pull it off:

From 100 Layer Cake, a DIY post about how to make colored mason jars for centerpieces – and in this case GOLD mason jars!  Such an inexpensive way to beautifully decorate.

And from Martha Stewart, a DIY on creating the perfect gold-toned guest book table:

Little Party Touches: Chair Bows

We all know that it’s often the little touches that MAKE your party SHINE (or POP, depending on what you are going for).  Today’s post is all about those little touches!  Recently Diva Deb had a lovely backyard party, and here are a few photos from that event. (Try not to be jealous, like I am, of her lovely property…that is PERFECT for backyard parties!)

And a close-up of one of the tables, with a GORGEOUS “little touch” satin roses table-runner (which you can find HERE in the Diva Entertains shop):


A really easy “little touch” is to add sashes or bows to your chairs.  Here is a link to Organza Sashes in our Diva Entertains shop. And check out the photos of the FAB sashes/bows from Diva Deb’s party:


A quick search on YouTube brings up several great how to tie chair sashes tutorial videos on how to do these.  Here is one with a long drape:

And an elegant rosette chair tie:

What kind of little touches do YOU like to add for your events?
