Friday Weddings: XOXO

For all of you brides out there getting married in February, look what Shauna Young has on her blog! A beautiful modern, chic Valentine's Dessert Table. She designed it for a group of Photography students (what a treat they got!)

Not only the theme is so fun and original for a wedding but the color scheme she picked gives it a more sophisticated feel, perfect for brides that love eye candy!

Look at what she did over the guests table! ... she's so creative :)

Friday Wedding: Organic and Rustic Wedding in NJ

I'm sharing this wedding with you from The because I really like the warmness that the color scheme brings to this beautiful Organic and Rustic styled New Jersey wedding. 

I'm helping a Bride deciding on her shower favors coming up in February; and I really love the pop of color for a Valentine's theme event, it's fun, modern and romantic!...This will look beautiful in a Valentine's Day wedding staying away from the traditional  pinks and reds if you want to give your guests a nice surprise with plum, magenta and kelly green.

NYC: Martha Stewart Dreamers Into Doers Event Part 2

I'm back! from the DID Event... In one word it was "Inspiring" 

I loved Martha Stewart's Headquarters! I mean who wouldn't?, I loved the great people I met and I was able to connect with other party and dessert girls. We had a series of workshops where we learned tips about what works best for your personal and business success!

I def recommend to join this online community, specially if you're planning on making one of your dreams of having your own business come true.

The second day unfortunately I wasn't able to make it :( , I'm still sad about it, but I think it was the best decision...the weather was awful (a combination of snow and rain) so I took the train and walk a bit when in the city and when coming back to the train station, that got me so sick. I had a very serious case of fever and sore throat almost immediately! my voice was it was scary, and that's why I decided to stay home and miss the taping of the show :( and other 2 workshops. Today I'm feeling a bit better, but I don't think I would've make it in the city, the weather is just mean!

That's me with beautiful Kim from the TomKat Studio
and that's me with Courtney from Pizzazzerie!
Danielle Lexo from
and last but not least...Martha! she looked amazing :) we were all happy to see her and thankful of course, how nice from her and her team to have us over and share their great secrets!

I loved all of the experts and the delicious mini treats we were given at the cocktail party!
oh! and yes they even treat us to some mini makeovers!

Can't wait for next year!
