Kate Spade inspired wedding shower.

I came across this Kate Spade inspired wedding shower on one of my daily reads: Em is for Marvelous. I love of the idea of taking inspiration for a party from one of the guest of honor’s favorite brands.

I thought it was super clever so wanted to share it with you! Emily, who’s also the creative director of Southern Weddings, created the invites herself and did such a great job… even┬ámimicking┬áKate Spade’s signature Baskerville italics.

She also had a really fun game idea. She had each guest write a note for the bride for the 12 days leading up to the wedding… I love stationery and notes of any kind so it’s not surprising that I thought this was a really thoughtful idea.

It would also work well for a baby shower as the days leading up to a due date can get a bit intense as well… only it’s a very different type of intense as compared to leading up to a wedding.

And isn’t nail polish such a cute idea for a favor? LOVE. Check out her post for more pictures here.

Suzanne’s bachelorette.

While in the States, I got to join in on a fun bachelorette evening for my sweet sister-in-law Suzanne.

The night was planned by her sister Deirdre, who was getting married a short three weeks later… so I offered to help by taking care of snacks / favors by ordering again from Annie’s Custom Cookies.

She did a great job of incorporating various elements of the evening: ice cream from an outing to local farm and ice cream powerhouse Rota-Spring, lingerie as it was a bachelorette, and dresses and champagne as the wedding was just two short days away — all in her wedding colors.

Rota-Spring Farm is just the kind of place you would NEVER find in Asia. You can actually see the cows that made the milk for your ice cream.

The ice cream is so good I think it would be worth the drive out from Boston.

And they had baby goats!

My nephew / godson not surprisingly LOVED them, even to the point where he wasn’t even interested in ice cream.

By the way, as an aside, the NorthEasterners have a lock-down on ice cream in my humble opinion. I mean how much better is Ben&Jerry’s than Haagen-Dazs? So much better.

The little goats could not have been more adorable.

Looking forward to visiting this American institution again!

Back at the house, the bride-to-be had to guess which marriage advice was from whom… we all wrote out some marital wisdom on the back of pretty hearts on sticks, which combined to form a pretty bouquet. A shower / bachelorette idea worth remembering!

And then we had fun eating buns!

Katie’s Something Sweet.

How adorable are these cookies?! Aren’t they just to die for? I love the little sprinkles as pearl earrings and eyes and two for a nose.

Love this idea for a wedding topper. Katie must have such a steady hand and SO much patience!! Check out her Etsy shop here. Discovered on Emmeline Bride.
