Palm Beach Welcome Party: Nikki + Chad

Nikki and Chad's amazing wedding weekend kicked off with a welcome party at The Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach. Guests were invited for "mojitos on the beach," but with the Florida weather being unseasonably chilly, we had to move the party indoors to one of the resort's restaurants. Nevertheless, the welcome party was a blast. Reed, from Renny & Reed, decked the place out in dashing turquoise linens and enough Oncidium orchids to make everyone forget about their weather woes.

Guests sipped on strawberry jalapeno mojitos, one of the The Ritz-Carlton's signature cocktails, and feasted on mini cuban sandwiches, sliders, and hand cut french fries. In addition to the delicious passed snacks, there were also a handful of stations that were so yummy, guests left not wanting a thing! (I must say that the culinary team at The Ritz-Carlton Palm Beach is so amazingly creative with their station displays. I was really impressed!) For dessert, we passed fruit sorbet shaped like actual fruit on ice trays and set up bananas foster stations complete with endless topping options.

I can't wait to share Nikki and Chad's wedding with you - it's stunning!

Weekly Inspiration: Flower Pot Cakes

Spring has sprung! How cute are these flower pot cakes from Perfect Endings? I think they'd make a lovely garden lunch dessert, especially placed on top of these leaf plates. They're playful, yet pretty and not to mention delicious. The cake is super moist and topped with the most amazing cookie crumbs you have ever tasted. So good!

Love This: Zephyr Adirondack Chairs

How sweet are these Adirondack chairs (and matching tables!) from Zephyr Tents? They'd be lovely at an outdoor wedding during cocktail hour or late night for stargazing. As rental furniture goes, these are the bees knees. Zephyr Tents is the amazing company behind the stunning sailcloth tents of Holly + Michael fame.

Weekly Inspiration: Lavender Lemonade

I love to serve lavender lemonade before the ceremony at outdoor weddings. It's so refreshing and chic. (Can you tell I have spring fever?) Photo by Tanya Malott.
