With colorful captures by Karinda K and design and styling by Designed Affair, today's styled soirée is filled to the brim with all things fun and fruity. Think pineapples, lemons, oranges — plus the happiest florals by Linda Doyle! Trust us, this Lily Pulitzer inspired shoot is a total must-see!

 

Because you know what they say? "Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink," That's what Lilly Pulitzer's motto is, anyways. And she should know since she's the queen of fashion!

 

Inspired by the well-known fashion brand, this amazing team of talented wedding professionals led by Laced with Grace - took Lilly Pulitzer's signature look and married it with all things wedding.

 

"When Lilly eloped with Peter Pulitzer in the 50’s, they escaped the hustle and bustle of New York City for the sun and sand of Palm Beach."

 

"In the shadow of Peter's citrus groves, Lilly opened a juice stand."

 

"To disguise the juice stains on her clothing, she had a sleeveless dress made from colorfully-printed cotton and soon after that she was selling more dresses than juice!"

 

"Since then Lilly's designs have continued to be printed to bring the brand to life."

 

"Lilly's bright and colorful prints as well as the season change inspired this refreshing and sunny styled shoot."

 

 

 

"The Rasberry Lavender Cosmo served chilled with White Cranberry Vodka, Triple Sec, Lavendar Simple Syrup and a garnish of Rosemary Leave would be a perfect cool down for an outside cocktail hour."

 

"Moffitt Oaks is located deep in the heart of Texas and sits on over 8 acres..."

 

"...with multiple ceremony and reception sites nestled on the property with so much open space this was the perfect spot to capture a natural outdoor styled shoot."

 

 

 

"Vibrant yellows, pinks, greens and oranges served as our bright and fun color palette."

"The splendid floral bouquets and center pieces were created by our florist Linda Doyle."

 

 

"Our bright yellow lemons were dressed with calligraphy by Camel & Birdie and served as the perfect touch for our bride and grooms place setting as escort cards."

"Our sweetheart table was dressed in white glittering linen with apple flock taffeta napkins and custom citron cushion covers all available from House of Hough."

"Silver glass beaded chargers accompanied our white dinner plates and on top our clear glass salad plates from a Finer Event."

 

 

"Our hot pink flamingos were sure to stand tall on our embellished custom made invitations and menu cards created by Lynsey Creative."

And how amazing is this cake by Bavarian Cakery?

Calligraphy by Camel and Birdie added the sweetest touch to these lemons.

Holiday Cocktail Trio

There are so many holidays to celebrate this season, and you need a drink for every single one of them.

We've got you for 3 of them. We'd have you for all, but newsletters can only be so long, you know?

 

 

Christmas

This year we're going with a Christmas classic. It's delicious, beautiful, and easy to make, making it the perfect addition to take your Christmas party up one fabulous level. Introducing:

The Poinsettia

5 Cranberries

1oz Cointreau

2oz Cranberry juice

Champagne

Combine Cranberries, Cointreau, and Cranberry Juice in a shaker with ice. Muddle the Cranberries, then shake until chilled. Strain into a Champagne Flute, then top with Champagne. Pop some frozen cranberries on top for beauty and extra chill!

Hanukkah

Our selection for Hanukkah took our breaths away for beauty. The cool, clear winter blue sets an elegant tone for your celebration, and gives the drinker a most stylish air. We bring to you:

The Aviation

1oz Gin (G'Vine Floraison is recommended)

3/4oz Maraschino Liqueur

1/2oz Fresh Lemon Juice

1/4oz Creme de violette

 

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake until chilled. Strain into a coupe, or saucer glass, and garnish as you please!

We have heard a rumor, by the by, that the lemon juice can be replaced with limoncello for an added kick, if you're in the mood.

New Year's Eve

For New Year's Eve, we again have a tried and true, never-fail staple. It's fresh, like your start next year, refreshing, like you need after 2016, and so, so tasty. Ladies and Gentlemen:

The French 75

1oz Gin

1/2oz Simple Syrup

1/2oz Fresh Lemon Juice

Champagne

Combine Gin, Simple Syrup, and Lemon Juice in a shaker with ice. Shake until chilled. Strain into a Champagne Flute, and top with Champagne. Traditionally, you would garnish this with a lemon twist, but it's New Year's Eve, so go ahead and use something glittery.

Boozy Edibles

So now you know what you're drinking, but what should you be eating?

Obviously, more booze. Why is this even a question?

It's a good idea to start early in the day, since you have so much celebrating to do, so we made sure to find you some sweet treats that can be dessert or breakfast, or both, depending on your festive mood. Read on!

 

Amaretto Crepes with Cranberry Raspberry Sauce

Sarah over at The Gold Lining Girl is a genius. A boozy, crepe-y savant. She developed this amaretto crepe that is divine. It can be breakfast, it can be dessert, it can be anything you want it to be because nobody could ever fault you for wanting this no matter what time of day.

This crepe has amaretto in the crepe itself, which is filled with sweet vanilla mascarpone, and doused with an amaretto cranberry-raspberry sauce.

Are you drooling yet? We are.

Head on over to The Gold Lining Girl for the recipe, and let Sarah teach you a little something about deliciousness!

 

Bourbon Cupcake with Maple Buttercream & Bourbon Maple Glazed Bacon

Nicole, over at Wonky Wonderful, brings to us this sinful addition to our holiday smorgasbord, and may we just say: Swoon.

I don't even have to explain why this is a breakfast food. There's bacon on top, for goodness sake. A three-part confection that's just as impressive as a three-piece suit, it's salty, it's sweet, and it's everything you ever needed in a "breassert." Visit Wonky Wonderful to learn how to make these little wonders, and never have another regret in your life.
