Kids Table - Cover Photo Option 1We tend to see a lot of adult-only weddings, however these days we are also starting to see more and more weddings with kids included! There are so many fun ways to incorporate kids into your wedding, with endless creative and fun ideas to make them feel like special guests on your big day. We’ve included just a few of our favourite ideas below!

Table Décor for ‘Kids-Only!’ tables

Kids Table - Cover Photo Option 3Paper Tablecloths – Cover the kids table with paper that they can draw on throughout dinner to keep busy – incorporate glass vases with crayons and other jars/vases filled with easy craft items for them to use!

Candy CentrepiecesCandy Centrepieces – With centrepieces typically being the main focal point of guest tables, what better way to distinguish a kids-only table than with a centerpiece made up of only sweets!? There are many different candies you could use for the centrepieces, but we love the look of these lollipop and marshmallow centrepieces. The best part is you can match them to your colour scheme, and they’re sure to be a big hit with the kids!

Candy Napkin HolderCandy Bracelet Napkin Holders - Another fun touch to distinguish the kids table is to use something fun like candy bracelets as the napkin holders!

Activities to Keep Them Busy

Kids Craft Books 2Colouring Books – They say idle hands make for  mischief, so keep them busy with a wedding themed colouring book!

 original_my-little-wedding-goody-box (1)Cards for the Bride & Groom – Another way for them to channel their inner artist is by giving them the supplies to make a card for the bride and groom. It will keep them entertained and act as a memorable keepsake from your wedding!

Kids I Spy Game‘I Spy’ Game – This is a popular new touch at weddings for kids! Provide each kid a disposable camera along with a fun list of photos to capture. These little guests might even end up capturing some of your best candid moments on camera!

Kid-Approved Food and Drinks

Cupcake StationCupcake Decorating Stations – Kids love creating their own masterpieces, especially if it’s something tasty they can eat! Lay out a variety of different sprinkles and toppings – this is another easy way to keep them happily entertained!

Kids Open BarKids Mocktail Bar – Have a fun ‘Mocktail Bar’ set-up for the kids, complete with different juices, fun cups and crazy straws! They can create their own mocktails to participate in all of the toasts throughout the night!

Kids Cocktail Toast - MilkLate Night Milk & Cookies Toast – We also love this adorable milk & cookie idea for the kids as a sweet treat after dinner…the adult guests might even end up sneaking some of these!

Goodie Bags & BalloonsGoodie Bags – And last but not least, don’t forget to have little goodie bags for all of the kids! This is always a huge hit – who doesn’t love opening a little surprise!? You can even display them at the table with a single balloon tied to each, which again can be colour-coordinated to fit with your theme.

Pantone 2018 palettePantone colour trends of 2018 have arrived! If you are a wedding enthusiast like us this is your favourite announcement of the year, next to wedding dress trends of course. Well without further ado we have for you the Pantone colour trends of 2018.

1 CollageCherry Tomato, Spiced Apple and Palace BlueWith winter weddings around the corner let us begin with Spiced Apple, Cherry Tomato, and Palace Blue. These colours work perfect together as rich blue tones and warm reds gives your wedding the well-deserved subtle glow. We have already seen palace blue as a popular colour for grooms’ suits but now we will be seeing more of it in the décor choices. As for the reds well these stunning options can be found in anything from flowers to bridesmaid dresses. All three of these tones will work well with different themes; Palace blue can be found in Nautica themed weddings and Cherry Tomato/Spiced Apple can be used in Hollywood themed weddings. If you’re not sold on using both reds, our recommendation is Spiced Apple as this is the perfect colour to incorporate in your bouquets and centrepieces. It matches especially well with Palace Blue as both of these colours will give your wedding a rich colour palette. Make that white wedding cake bold by adding a few Spiced Apple coloured flowers and watch your guests gaze at it with envy. Want to truly spice things up, your groom can wear a palace blue suit and bow tie and for yourself make a statement with a bold Spiced Apple lip colour.

2 collagepurple 3Jewel tones are all the rage this year with Ultra Violet. Yes purple has made a comeback in wedding trends. Wondering what the complimentary colours are to this stunner. For softer tones think Almost Mauve. You can be adventurous with Ultra Violet as a shoe colour, or the colour of your flowers. Almost Mauve can be an excellent colour choice for your floral, candle sticks even chair décor. Setting the stage for a country or garden themed wedding. For a bold statement combine Ultra Violet and Lime Punch. Ultra violet although a jewel tone, pairs beautifully with the neon tones of Lime Punch. Your wedding will pop with these two colours coexisting. Mix these colours in your bouquet or even the table setting of your reception.

3 Collage39df417103dbc7a4b3d841b772be5cafMaking a smooth transition out of the jewel tones and into the softer tones we start with Nile Green. A close cousin to forest tones this colour is perfectly paired with Rapture Rose. The darker green brings out the warm pink tones of rapture rose. Using these colours you will continue the ever popular garden theme. Add some colour to your cake, think Nile Green tiers with Rapture Rose coloured floral.

Collage 4Meadowlark and Dahlia 2Transitioning from the neon greens to the yellows and oranges we have Meadowlark paired with Blooming Dahlia.  These colours paired together are a pop of spring. Meadowlark is a mixture of an off gold and darker yellow tone, and is perfect for table settings or light yellow floral. Blooming Dahlia, is a light orange/coral colour, when used as candle sticks or place cards in reception table settings will give you the best of fall and spring.

Collage 5Ash Rose and Pink LavenderTo finish off this wonderful pantone list we end with Ash Rose and Pink Lavender. Both colours are perfect for spring and summer weddings as they embody the best of a fairy-tale or whimsical wedding theme. Ash Rose is a darker blush colour that can be expressed through floral, shoes, bridesmaids’ dresses, really anywhere that you want to have dark blush included. Pink Lavender combines the beauty of both pink and light purple making this a hybrid colour. Both colours blend together nicely, making this the perfect colour combo.

There you have it the much anticipated 2018 pantone colour trends. Which do you think will be selected as the colour of the year?

wdcThere is no doubt that marble is the newest and most sophisticated trend for weddings. Just in preparing for this blog we went a little marble crazy on Pinterest. It is a classic theme that can stand alone, or be paired with a colour or theme of your choice to truly make it pop!

Invitation Collage DanceFloorDecorMarble is so versatile that it can be used in almost all of your décor. Add some drama to your ceremony décor with a marble aisle runner. Swap out regular votive candles for marble votive candles. Have vases with floral in them, add in white and grey stones to make the marble look come to life.

Marble Food lavishpalmsprings-wedding-25Finding a great accent to pair with marble is key, as you may find it hard to collect marble specific wedding items. We suggest having an accent colour or an additional theme to give your marble more of a completed look. Rose gold, blush pink, greenery and gold are only some of the colours that you can pair with marble to intensify the look. Geometric shapes are all the rage so pairing this with marble will put your wedding décor on a new level.

07_FullSizeRender-3-courtesy of LHC IMG_1402When it comes to your reception you can include marble in almost everything. Your chargers can be marble, menu cards can also be printed on marble card stock. Guests will look forward to finding their seat with easy DIY marble tile place cards. And if you’re looking for a place to take gorgeous photos, think about adding in a marble back drop. Make your wedding the envy of everyone with a majestic two or three tier marble designed cake. Each addition of marble will complete the classy look you desire.

Nizuc DecorWe are completely smitten over this wedding décor from the Nizuc Resort & Spa in Cancun!  This reception style is beautifully lavish due to its grandiose floral, but the smaller details are also eye-catching and make this intimate reception unforgettable.

We honestly cannot imagine anything more spectacular than a hanging flower installation made with crisp white Phalaenopsis Orchids. We love the fact that they chose to use black ghost back chairs instead of clear ghost back chairs, which are a more common choice that we have seen spike in popularity.  The clean white from the hanging florals are contrasted strikingly with the solid gold charger plates, scattered gold votive candles and personalized gold gifts placed on each napkin.

There is a lovely element of dimension on the main tables by having two different sized centerpieces. We’re obsessed with the floral choices here; the medium sized centerpieces are made with white Roses and Ranunculus, and the extra-small centerpieces are made with 2-3 stems of the same white flowers. All of the flowers are in clear cylinder vases to keep it simple and chic. The white napkins also tie into not only the floral, but the white draping hanging from the wooden gazebos.

We also love that they have chosen to use champagne linens for the tables instead of white linens, which adds a nice pop of color. We’re drawn to the hints of greenery, which can be found sprinkled into the hanging ceiling florals and Dusty Miller in the table centerpieces. This adds a stunning yet subtle color element that we adore.

We know that this is going to be an inspirational look for many weddings to come. If you have not chosen a location for your destination wedding and would like to re-create this look, we definitely suggest booking with the Nizuc Resort & Spa in Cancun! Now get planning!
