Surprise Garden Inspired Birthday Lunch

In terms of amazing birthday celebrations, this certainly ranks at the tippy top. It’s a surprise party for a Mom who is turning 60 years young crafted by Carol-Anne Kemp. And tucked inside are elegant details pairing vintage pieces with the modern look of ghost chairs and a dessert spread like you wouldn’t believe. Which is music to this birthday girl’s ears since dessert happens to be her favorite course. Find more captured by Cheryl McEwan right here.

My Mom is generally the family member to host birthday parties for the rest of the family but seldom hosts parties for herself. For her 60th birthday I wanted to change that so I planned a surprise birthday lunch for her. It was held in the spring so I wanted a light, airy look. My Mom loves floral and vintage pieces so we rented vintage crockery and mixed the crockery with pastel colored floral arrangements. We also rented vintage furniture and mixed the pieces with modern elements, such as ghost chairs, to give the venue a modern vintage look. Dessert is my Mom’s favorite course so we ensured there was a fully stocked dessert table that looked beautiful and tasted delicious. The result was a lovely afternoon thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Morocco Engagement Session at Peacock Pavilions

I haven’t experienced Morocco first hand, but after perusing these images from O’Malley Photographers, I’ve decided this vibrant destination deserves a spot on my bucket list. And it just so happens to make the most gorgeous backdrop for snapping engagement shots. Peacock Pavilions perfectly captures that eclectic Moroccan vibe (my eyes are loving those blues). Hop over to the full gallery for more!

From O’Malley PhotographersNo matter where your destination wedding is taking place, it’s a great idea to take advantage of the gorgeous scenery and unforgettable memories you’re making by shooting engagement photos in the days leading up to the wedding. Morocco provided a stunning back-drop here, but no matter where you’re tying the knot, bring your photographer along while you explore the hidden gems and meaningful spots you and your fiancé share abroad. This session ended with an intimate engagement party for close friends.
