happy thanksgiving!

what a lovely table setting! these very earthy hues create a wonderful, warm atmosphere. the perfect palette by martha is called "honey & wheat" and ranges from pale champagne to deep amber.

the candles give off a glow to enhance the autumn romance of this table. the delicate bouquets of roses, wheat, peonies, and zinnias bring a refined and polished aspect to the decor. the table setting gives off warmth and radiance.

happy thanksgiving. hope your day is warm and glowing!

just love this picture

There is just something about this picture. Maybe its the way he is leaning into her... or the way she is hugging him... or the way he is kissing her forehead... they just look so happy.

Let us all be thankful for the special people in our lives this thanksgiving and may you be as happy and romantic as this couple.

autumn in philadelphia

yum! my husband and I made a wonderful drink for the 3rd Annual Thanksgiving Dinner this past Saturday night. The drink was called "autumn in philadelphia cider" and it was delicious! It was the perfect combo of sweet and sour and would be great as a specialty drink for a fall wedding. Here is the recipe to try it for yourself:

1 oz of apple cider
1 oz of vodka
1 oz of apple juice
0.5 oz of lemon juice
0.5 oz of simple syrup

Mix and serve cold in a martini glass. Let me know if you like it!

celebrating in style

I was extremely excited that my company, Provence Catering, was one of the professionals picked to be a part of Celebrating in Style at Two Paperdolls in Wayne. The goal of the event was to give guests ideas for decor, flowers, food & beverage, photography, and paper for different parties. Each room had a different theme and feel... a holiday party, a baby shower, a wine and cheese party, an ageless creatures party (you are never too old to celebrate your birthday), a mitzvah party, and a mancave party. We had food in almost every room and our cakes matched the decor wonderfully! I was so happy to work with all of these professionals to plan this event. The great players were Kendall and Leila from Eclatante, Donna, Maya, and Amanda from Beautiful Blooms, Mike and Jana from mk Photography, Carl from Frank's Wine, Laura from Laura Novak Photography, Craig from Craig Neier Associates, of course, Nicole from Two Paperdolls. Here are some awesome photos of the event courtesy of mk Photography:

Can't wait for the next Celebrating in Style event!

lovely item of the week

I'm loving this modern poppy ring pillow! It would be great for a winter wedding and would match dark gray bridesmaid dresses. You can find it on etsy here.

Here are a few gray wedding ideas from martha:

haven't met you yet

Who's that hottie? I'm obsessed with Michael Buble's new song, Haven't Met You Yet. It's incredibly catchy and you will find yourself singing it throughout the day. Here's the adorable, official music video to check out.

sweet succulents

I came across a beautiful wedding today on Once Wed that uses succulents as the main floral ingredient. I love this addition to flowers that we see everyday. The variety gives the bouquet character, personality, and style. Check out the rest of the wedding here.
