You guys might remember Alicia and her husband Adam from their real wedding feature here a few months ago. Well Alicia emailed me with this shoot she styled with her hubby at their store Bows and Arrows, and I had to show you all!
This party is inspired by sweet treats that are fun to eat and to look at! eye candy all around! On the plate are a few pink flavorful favorites including; cotton candy, Mexican pastries, sno balls and strawberry sugar wafers. Adding to the scrumptious time are clusters of fluffy flower arrangements of pink and yellow. Flowers include: peony, dusty miller, ranunculus, astilbe, dahlias, roses, hydrangea and billy balls! A few vintage touches are the milk glass for the arrangements, vintage chanel shoes, and a 1920’s craftsman style house as the setting. Handmade goodies include the felt pennants, pink veil, pompoms, table coverings and bandanna.

Let me start this all off by saying I LOVE Alicia! She used to work at Seaport Flowers and helped put my wedding together with the team there so when I found out she was getting married, I knew it was going to be awesome. And was I disappointed? Not a bit!
Having met in Brooklyn even though both had southern roots, they decided to get married at the Boathouse in Prospect Park. Their wedding was CHOCK full of DIY projects, from the pennants and escort cards, to Alicia making the bouquets and redesigning her wedding dress from JCrew!
Art as favors…the couple screenprinted and frames art from Adam of birds in the region. Each was unique!
A table runner of pompoms and vintage glass vases filled with flowers like ranunculus, hydrangea, lilac, sweet pea, dusty miller, peony, queen anne’s lace, spirea, garden roses, agapanthus, billy balls, football mums, baby’s breath, and yarrow, all in yellow and white.
