"For 2012, I am totally obsessed with bow ties, patterns (Stripes! Chevron!), and monochrome flower arrangements. These bow ties are both classic and edgy at the same time, a cool and simple silhouette with fun patterns."
"Monochrome flower arrangements involve no mixing of colors within the actual arrangement, though you can always include plenty of colors throughout the wedding design. In this case, I made use of this trend with our centerpieces; but you could use this for boutonnieres, bouquets, anything. The wonderful florist, Exquisite Blooms, and I used pinks and yellows with white milk glass vases. I love how the sweet flowers pop against the bold black and white striped linens."
"I also decided to use our glittery cake ball cake was used as a centerpiece. With something as beautiful, glittery, and theme-worthy as this, why hide it in the corner of the room? Cake Ball Love even added strung sugar beads for another touch of glam. For the place settings, I wanted to do something fancy, but unexpected. The black swirly highballs are a lot of fun for a wedding or a dinner party, are are quite a bit more unique than regular clear glassware. I placed the bright yellow plates on top of shiny textured chargers, and added black napkins and Brightly Designed's beautiful menu's to round it all out."
