Brooklyn Wedding Expo


Last year The Atlantic Avenue BID hosted their first ever wedding expo, and this year they are continuing on its success with a second time around on Sunday, April 13th from 12-5pm.  This time, all the vendors will be housed at Deity Event Space, and they’ve invited some talent from outside Atlantic Ave.  If any of you have walked the main drag, you know about all the great shops, restaurants and businesses that abound, and may have even noticed how many of them are wedding related, so this will be your chance to see them all under one roof.  With over 20 vendors ranging from registries to cakes, hair salons to parfumers, you’ll have your wedding figured out in a snap.  There will also be a fashion show covering dresses for the bride & bridesmaids, and also mens formal wear.  There will also be plenty of food, drink, and music, so get your tickets quick!  All information on the vendors participating can be found on their website.

Animal menagerie tablescape

animal menagerie shoot with kate spade new york

When I was approached to put together a shoot using kate spade new york products, I jumped at the chance, particularly because I’ve been obsessed with the Castle Peak plate collection ever since I laid eyes on it.  Those facets get me every time!  But when paired with the whimsy of their Woodland collection, it definitely makes this tablescape a fun and quirky change from the ordinary.  I mean, seriously, how can you resist an owl with a floral headpiece to rival that of Marie Antoinette??  Add in some cute salt and pepper shakers, figurines, and even an elephant piggy bank, and you’ve got a seriously adorable table.

Thanks to the fabulous team of Brittany from Brrch Floral and the fabulous Jainé from Brklyn View Photography, this shoot is the perfect inspiration for a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or even wedding!

How can you resist this little owl‘s face?  When you add the taller version of this owl vase, they make quite the pair.

The subtle dotted pattern on these champagne flutes and the sleek Tomkins flatware really complement everything nicely, dont you think?  For drinks we just used some sparkling grapefruit juice with a blackberry…the light pink really pulls in the blush from the flowers.

Better Ever After

Brewery Tours - Urban Oyster

With so many couples living together before marriage,  its obvious that most have already set up their home with the usual registry items, like plates, glasses, serveware, etc.  So rather than clogging up your already tight space (because in NYC, who has a ton of space anyway??), you can register for fun experiences through Better Ever After.  The difference with Better Ever After is that you’re not registering for cash, you’re getting gift certificates for actual experiences….like learning how to brew your own beer, taking a neighborhood food tour, or getting an interior design consultation!  There are lots of activities to choose from, and its a great way to keep that wedding bliss going long after the day is done.

So far Better Ever After is only in NYC, but they’re expanding, so vote for where their next city will be here!

Registry upgrade with Target

side table

When Chad moved to Brooklyn, he came with pretty much a couple of suitcases and an X-box (thankfully we got rid of the xbox pretty quick!).  I had already been living in our studio apartment for a couple of months so I was established in the furniture department, but we needed to pick up some stuff for him pretty quick, like a wardrobe, desk, etc.  We managed to hit a sample sale in our neighborhood and scored a side table with a little ding in it that he just HAD to have by the sofa for $25.  We still have it 7 years later, and I’m definitely due for an upgrade.

This little gold side table is totally up my alley, but this white & espresso number or walnut table is probably more Chad.  The great thing is, if we were getting married all over again, we could register for any of them at Target.  And while we’re at it, might as well throw in some goodies when we entertain, like some new barware & bartools.  That’s the great thing about registering, even though you may already have something, like plates, wine glasses or even pillows, its the perfect time to upgrade them to something new!

So tell me, is there anything in your house that you’d like to upgrade when you set up your registry?
