Gorgeous rustic holiday party design with plenty of food, decor & fashion inspiration! Love the soft neutrals & elegant vibes – great for a winter wedding.
So exciting! As I mentioned in my last post, I have all sorts of pretty photos to share with you today for a holiday photoshoot I recently participated in. It’s probably a little late for inspiration for a Christmas party, but many of the ideas and decor would be great for a New Year’s party or even a winter wedding!
The full shoot is being shared in two parts on The Everygirl this week – how fun is that? When I was planning our wedding, I got tons of inspiration from their site. Now my cakes are featured there to inspire other people! You can find the first post here, and the second post here. You can see more about how I made the ‘naked’ thyme-wrapped cake and also get my recipe for cardamom espresso buttercream here.
I also can’t say how much fun it was to hang out with a great group of blogger ladies all afternoon! Even though the party was staged, it honestly felt real! You can see the whole list of all the ladies who participated at the end of the post. I hope you’ll check out all of their blogs and see all the fun things they share. You can also get their perspectives on the shoot day. There’s also a list of where you can get all the pretty dresses and decor so you can throw your own winter party.
