Gold & Black Grad Party

First of all, congratulations to all graduates of class of 2017 – undergrad, post-graduate, high school, or even kindergarten! You all did it!

This past weekend, we had the pleasure of decorating a graduate’s intimate celebratory party. We were asked to provide some of the gorgeous details that the party entailed. The theme was gold and black, so the cutlery and plate ware were black and details were white or gold. We found an adorable cake at Loblaws that was already graduation-themed, but we added the cupcake toppers on for a personal touch.

Of course, the rest of the place had to be decorated! Our valued customer requested a guarland/buntee, tassels, and a paper fan back drop for her guests to take pictures in front of. We also provided gold and black balloons.

What are some of your favourite intimate party details that you use? We would love to hear your comments!

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

We had the honour of assisting a bride-to-be’s friends in designing and decorating the hall for a bridal shower. The theme was Breakfast at Tiffany’s, where the guests were asked to dress in black while the bride-to-be dressed in white. And theme could not have been more fitting to the bride’s personality.

We designed simple centre pieces for the tables: a thin vase with black and white stones, a couple of white tulips, and we tied a small bit of ribbon around the thinnest part of the vase. How adorable!!!! As with most bridal showers we have been to, there had to be games. Of course, we had the honour of designing a couple of games for the guests. We had placed them inside loot bags that were placed on the tables at each place for the guests.

The most requested aspect of this theme was the little cute quotes that we had included on the guest table as well as the candy table. Everything was on point, including the damask/Victorian print plates, table cloths and napkins we found. And of course, each loot bag became a guest favour, since each bag included a copy of the games, a few memorabilia, and candy from the candy table!

Perfection is all in the details! What do you think?

Kate Spade Wedding Details

One of our first official work as In Love and Colour began when designing the details of a unique though very trendy theme. The colours were hot pink, gold, black and white, as per Kate Spade’s trademark colours. Especially in that year, bright colours and black and white stripes were everywhere. It was hard not to notice.

I went specifically with shades of pink, from blush tones, to hot hues, and a bit of plum colour in my centre pieces. Which is what inspired us to create her a wedding logo to use for all the wedding stationery that was created for this wedding.

Of course, what trendy wedding doesn’t have a photo booth wall? I had asked for something unique that could be used as a background for my guests to take pictures. So we came up with and adorable keepsake for our house later on. It was wreath of pink flowers with gold “M ♥ R” in the middle. It was hung on a black and white separator.

On the guest and gift tables, I wanted some more of her pinks and gold to accent the tables. Against white linen, there were black and white table runners. The gift table had a gold bird cage for envelope gifts. We added clear vases which we had painted on gold polka dots, added tulle inside, and a pink flower ball at the top. The same vases were made for the guest table where I had added a gold guestbook and a black and white pen to match the rest of the theme.

Lastly, for the cocktail tables, I wanted something simple, yet would tie in with the rest of the theme. We added clear vases with black and white stone pebbles, as well as varying shades of pink flowers.
