whatever floats your boat
First it was cupcakes. Then, it was doughnuts. My new favorite delicious wedding treat? A Coke float station! This amazing detail at the wedding last night really got me thinking of different ways to incorporate a Coke/Root Beer/whatever-floats-your-boat station into a southern wedding, and Pinterest helped me out with some drool-worthy inspiration!
This colorful DYI Float bar is a perfect way to make everyone happy! Whether your guests enjoy Root Beer, Diet Coke, or Coca Cola, or whether they want one scoop of ice cream or five (don’t judge, this is my preference, ya’ll), this is a surefire way to please the masses. And how can you not love these colorful pinwheels!?
With a more rustic southern approach, this Root Beer float bar really makes me swoon with those personalized mason jar mugs, and how about those Love Floats straws? Sweet, simple, and yummy!
Maybe you want your floats to be a mini late-night snack. Pair these tiny ice cream floats with some delicious sliders for guests to fuel up after laboriously hitting the dance floor all night!
Outdoor wedding in July? Cool your guests down with Ice Cream Float popsicles! This how-to even includes a cherry on top!
Can’t stay away from cupcakes? Combine the two delicious treats into one yummy Root Beer Float Cupcake! This recipe tastes just like the real thing and is absolutely to die for!
Ya’ll have any other Float Station suggestions? Maybe another great recipe or a creative way to display the tasty treats? Feel free to comment below!
And y’all remember, it doesn’t get much more southern than Coca-Cola!
In lieu of my recent post about my love for floating lanterns, I thought some attention should be given to the magic of outdoor lighting! Enjoy!
the most flowers I have ever seen
This wedding at St. Regis Atlanta hands down was the biggest collection of beautiful flowers that I have ever seen. I was awestruck how drastically the ballroom was transformed with the help of Robert Long Flora Design. And besides the flowers, my favorite detail of this wedding was the beautiful crystal champagne flutes. I caught myself drooling over these multiple times! Whoops!
Goodness gracious, I almost cried when I found this picture on the Southern Weddings blog. Hands down, this is my absolute favorite detail that I have ever seen in a wedding, and I am still in awe of how sweet and lovely this bride was.
There is no other word to describe these shoes than “perfection”
I think I’ve made it pretty obvious my love for string lights, but I often have a hard time finding indoor lights that really mesh well with the rest of the decor. This photo from the Southern Weddings blog does such a great job of not only incorporating the lights and lanterns, but also giving a great romantic, rustic feel!
Biltmore Atlanta Wedding
I went to a gorgeous wedding at the Biltmore in Atlanta last night, which is hands down one of my favorite venues. They rennovated the ballrooms, it is has such glamorous, old fashioned architecture. Here is a great picture that really can’t even capture how breathtaking it really is.
Instead of only having the round tables, the bride had a long table running through the center for the bridal party and family. They also had these perfect winter centerpieces with white roses, long branches, and candles floating from the branches. Here is a picture of something similar, but with red flowers and a longer vase.
the peachtree club perfection
As I said before, a couple months back, I went on a tour of The Peachtree club with a friend who really fell in love with the place. She put this old ring of her grandmothers on, and we had a fun afternoon of pretending she was engaged (strangely, her boyfriend only laughed at our adventures instead of running in the opposite direction!) Unfortunately, my iphone has only subpar photo quality, but I made a collage of the photos that did turn out (at least kinda!)
The view is genuinely stunning (hello stone mt ANd buckhead), and the deck was actually only recently built on (I believe in the past year- year and a half), so it is sort of this unknown spot to get married right now. Of course, they are booked for months, but it’s just now really growing in popularity from what we learned. Size is a slight issue because the space isn’t meant for huge weddings, but they seemed prety easy going about our attempts to squeeze as many people in as possible. My absolute favorite room of the place is the light blue room. We were told it is usually used as an addition to the dining room, but we asked if we could turn it into th brides dressing room! The color is perfect, and the lighting is wonderful, and the best part is: the windows are tinted from the outside allowing the bride to watch everyone gather for her big day!
