With Memorial Day weekend on the horizon, I’m fully ready to kick back and turn on summer mode. It’s off-duty time folks and that means there’s just one item on the to-do list: lounging (and maybe a bit of cocktail indulging). And where better to unwind than a serene hammock swaying in the breeze? Take your pick!
We are all for showers. They usually come bearing sweets and day drinking; the recipe for a weekend well spent. August In Bloom and DeLight Floral + Design have that recipe down to a pastel science. One that includes adorable bun in the oven details. We’re talking cinnamon buns, hot cross bun macarons, even a bun pinata. But what we really can’t get past is the gourmet burgers on pastel waffle buns. Whhhaaaattt? Sign us up. See the full spread captured by Simply Lace Photography right here.
Sara Sull and Mallory Cheung of August In Bloom were over the moon to celebrate one of their own in style. Sara’s sister, Shannon Siu, has a baby on the way and we wanted to throw her an unforgettable shower to welcome a new addition to the family while still keeping it the intimate gathering she was hoping for.
We dreamt up a bun in the oven themed party for our special mommy-to-be and of course the perfect venue was the cutest bakeshop in town! Pretty pastel invitations were sent to Shannon’s closest family and friends who were instructed to knock on a bright pink door that could not be missed.
Darling artisanal items such as a hand-illustrated welcome sign and our special guest, the baby bun piñata, greeted guests upon arrival. Lush blooms of Shannon’s favorite flowers filled the tablescape and guests dined on vintage mismatched china in front of a whimsical botanical wall.
The menu featured gourmet hand pressed mini burgers with pink and lavender waffle buns. Macarons disguised as hot cross buns, a sweet berry cake, cupcakes and cinnamon buns filled the sweet table. Cotton candy treats were gifted to all the guests as a thank you favor to take home.
Shannon described the party as charming, fresh and sweet with delicate details. We were so honored to have the opportunity to shower this new mom with gifts, love and well wishes for the baby!
