Safari Themed Wedding Ideas: Leopard Print

It’s time to talk about animal print wedding themes. For those of you that follow us regularly, you know we love unique personalized wedding details. Safari themed weddings are definitely full of personalized wedding style and unique details. A couple weeks ago we discussed the beauty that is zebra print, now let’s discuss leopard print. Leopard print comes in a variety of colors but most weddings feature the standard black and white leopard print. From the wedding invitations to the animal print decorations, you can incorporate leopard bring into any part of your wedding.

Leopard Print Accessories

If you want to incorporate leopard print into your wedding, first decide how much is “too much”. A bold look would be to ask your bridesmaids to wear leopard print bridesmaid dresses with hot pink detail. While this sounds fun and exciting, it might be more appropriate for the bachelorette party instead. Leopard print is very cute for wedding accessories such as your wedding garter or heels. Let your bridesmaids pick pink or green wedding dresses and surprise them with simply leopard print earrings or shoes. This is a subtle way to incorporate leopard print into your wedding attire.

Outdoor Leopard Décor

When it comes to decorating your outdoor wedding venue with leopard print, you can use tissue paper pom poms and strings of mini lights to create a fun playful backyard theme. Combine your leopard print with white lace details for a cute vintage feel. Lace is feminine while leopard print is exotic and intriguing. Decorate your table with a lace tablecloth and leopard print table runner. If you’re really into the vintage look, use lace table cloths with burlap chair sashes. Then your leopard print décor can be the accent to spice up the theme. Leopard and lace is a great combination for a romantic outdoor venue. With a little lace, you can turn your leopard theme into a romantic 1920’s theme wedding!

Don’t Forget Desserts

If you read our zebra print blog you’ll know that animal print cupcake wrappers are a must have item! Decorate a yummy dessert table with your lace tablecloths and white cupcake stands. With lace coasters you can dish out delicious cupcakes with leopard print cupcake wrappers. They double as beautiful edible party favors if you give guests cupcake boxes to take them home in! Who doesn’t love a deliciously cute cupcake as an edible wedding favor?

When you create a leopard print wedding theme you’re destined to have a memorable wedding. The bold accessories and vintage décor will create a one-of-a-kind event. Lace and leopard is a feminine and romantic combination that can be incorporated into your bridal shower, wedding ceremony and reception. You can even give your bridesmaids cute leopard print phone cases to get them in the mood for your exotic party theme.

What do you think about this fun playful wedding theme? Not everyone could pull this style off.  If you had the opportunity to incorporate a leopard print into your wedding style, what leopard print accessory would YOU wear?

How to Host a Carnival Themed Birthday Party

Birthday party themes can get mundane and boring unless you find a way to mix it up and be creative. The ultimate way to throw a hit birthday party is with a carnival themed birthday party. Big balloons, bright colors and plenty of carnival games make for a great birthday party! Transform your party into a boardwalk venue with a saltwater taffy dessert bar. An old fashioned candy cart filled with ribbon candy and cotton candy is the perfect way to serve sweet desserts or birthday cake. For cupcakes use brightly colored striped cupcake wrappers and pennant cupcake toppers. Once you have desserts covered you can start planning your themed beverages. Old fashion soda stands are a great way to serve cool refreshing drinks at your party. Use soda pop bottles with retro paper drinking straws in red and blue stripes.

Start with brightly colored invitations adorned with paper pennants or balloons. Then create the same look for your party décor by using paper pennants and plenty of balloons. Red, yellow and blue are prominent carnival colors so don’t be afraid to combine all three for a true carnie color theme. Don’t forget to add plenty of carnival tickets to your décor. Glass vases can be wrapped with carnival tickets to create a carnival vase. Speaking of carnival tickets; be sure to plan plenty of carnival games. Ring toss, squirt races and duck pond are all must-have games. Age appropriate games such as a fortune telling booth or kissing booth are exciting for older kids. Stock up on simple prizes such as candy necklaces, kazoos and squirt guns make great prizes for carnival games.

A carnival theme birthday party is great for a summer occasion. Not celebrating a birthday? The Fourth of July is a great excuse to throw a special carnival theme party. You can incorporate these ideas into a holiday party or a wedding reception. With a few pinwheel decorations, plenty of pennants and bright big balloons you can incorporate a carnival theme into your occasion without breaking the budget. We can’t help you with the elephants and lions, but hopefully these ideas helped with the décor!

Top 10 Unique 2012 Baby Shower Ideas

Celebrating a new baby is a big milestone for a new mom and dad. Planning the announcement and introducing the baby can be daunting and stressful for new parents. Traditionally close friends or family members would put together a special baby shower to celebrate the new bundle of joy. New traditions are starting to occur where parents announce their own future family member and invite guests to share in their happiness with them. Baby showers have become a unisex party for both men and women to enjoy.

Cute As A Button Baby Shower Favors

Here are the new trendiest top 10 popular baby shower decorating ideas for your future bundle of joy!

  1. Gender Reveal Cupcakes: These cupcakes are a great way to surprise your guests with the sex of the baby. The sex of the baby is revealed with pink or blue frosting filling inside the cupcake. Use a neutral cupcake wrapper like green and yellow to confuse guessers.
  2. Baby Theme Food: Invite guests to drink from large baby jars or milk cartons for a fun “be a kid again” feel! Pop bright colored retro paper drinking straws for a grown up way to avoid spills! Mini treats and mini cupcakes are the perfect excuse to serve finger food instead of an entrée.
  3. Diaper Cakes: This trend has been on the rise for some time now. The honored couple is supplied with diapers rolled up in the form of a cake. You can wrap cake with coordinated ribbon to make the cake match the rest of the baby shower décor. Decorate a cupcake stand with similar theme cupcakes for a matching presentation!
  4. Book Theme Baby: This theme is great for the avid reader parents. Guests are invited to bring a copy of their favorite childhood book they read themselves or read to their kids. Ask them to write an inscription on the inside cover for your child.
  5. Sprinkle Party: This term is used for moms who are having their second or third child. Since the assumption is they already have everything they need from the first baby shower, a simple sprinkle is the perfect party for giving diapers and other goods that a second time mom might need for a new gender different than the first baby.
  6. Jack and Jill Reveal: This is a super simple idea that won’t take a lot of time or energy. When inviting all your guests make a note to inform them to wear a blue or pink shirt to symbolize their guess for whether the baby is a girl or boy. Guests can receive baby party favors in blue or pink to reward them for their correct guess!
  7. After The Arrival: Some parents prefer to have the party after their big arrival comes so they can host a “see and sip” party where guests are invited to an open house style baby shower to see the baby and sip on drinks.
  8. Bring A Letter: This party theme really works well if you have a lot of guests attending. Assign each guest a number or letter to bring. They decorate a large wooden number or letter any way they’d like and they’re hung in the baby’s room for future learning tools!
  9. Onesie Decorating: This time honored tradition of decorating onesies for the new baby is a great way to incorporate different styles into your baby’s wardrobe. Buy bulk baby onesies for each guest to decorate and craft supplies from your local craft store. Onesie parties are all the rage!
  10. Guessing Game: This is another familiar tradition that is still in existence. Guests are asked to bet on what the baby will weigh. An alternative to baby weight (such a sensitive subject) is to have guests guess the baby’s eye color- though this only works if the parents have different eye colors. Create a little baby face drawing pad and each guest can take a crayon and color the hair and eyes the color that they think they will be.

 

 

Candy Buffet Supplies Perfect For A Winter Wedding!

Candy buffets are no longer just for summer and spring weddings. They can be incorporated into a winter wedding with just the slight variation in color and decor! White weddings are the perfect way to showcase mint chocolate treats and peppermint bark for a stunning candy buffet display. The best part about a DIY candy bar is you can dress it up with baked goods and other favorite desserts that may be meaningful to the bride and groom. If you’ve shared a sweet ice cream date for your most memorable night out then decorate a retro candy buffet with ice cream sandwiches and hot cocoa to warm up after! One of my personal favorite is cake pops and cupcake displays that have stunning pops of color. Nothing complements white desserts better than sparkly toppings! Try adding a glitter cupcake wrapper to your cupcakes for a special bit of fancy.

Winter Wonderland Wedding Candy Buffet

I came across this inspiration board from thecakeblog.com on our Pinterest page. I love the way they incorporated the snowflakes as an integral part of the decor. Snowflakes represent winter and snowy weather so what better way is there to show off white cupcakes? Create a subtle mix of cupcakes, cookies and candies to give your guests a better selection to choose from. If a white on white color theme is not your style, try a silver and white wedding motif.

To create a stunning wedding candy buffet you need a mixture of candy bowls, candy buffet jars and cake stands. Adding different heights will mix up the table and look better aesthetically. Decorate with silver bowls and clear glass apothecary jars for a silver and white theme. Peppermint bark and s’mores theme treats are great for a winter themed party. Another crowd pleaser? Gold coins are perfect for a wedding near Christmas because they’re classic and a subtle reminder of the holidays. Plus, gold candy is a great way to accent white in a modern way. Once you’ve decided on your stands and your types of candy, then you can move on to accent decor. Decorate your cupcakes in any of our festive Christmas cupcake wrappers for a holiday wedding or our gold mini cupcake liners for a white and gold motif. Mini cupcake liners or baking cups are also perfect for putting cake pops and small Jordan almonds in to avoid guests having to dig into dishes of treats. Which reminds me, don’t forget the rest of your candy buffet supplies such as tongs, scoops and to go favor bags for guests to take their treats home!

A popular trend among DIY brides and wedding bloggers is the use of mason jars and paper decor. White Tissue Paper Pom Poms hung above your candy buffet is a great backdrop and photo opportunity. Mason jars are cute with a few colorful paper drinking straws. Or chocolate chip cookies balanced on top of a pretty glass of milk make for a sweet chocolate touch without interrupting the sweet tooth theme. If all of this seems a little too daunting or cavity inducing, try decorating a simple cupcake buffet display with cupcake wrappers for color and then giving guests personalized baking mix party favors instead. Whether you’re creating a stunning cupcake buffet or going all out with a candy and dessert display table, you’ll find all the candy buffet supplies for a white winterland wedding at Koyal Wholesale!

Macaroons For Edible FavorsPhoto Courtesy of www.betsywhite.com/

I really love the idea of taking small cookies or macaroons and filling mini favor boxes with them. Then you complete the look with small cartons of milk. Fill a jar full of paper drinking straws and voila you have a fun playful dessert bar that doesn’t include little signs or lots of sugar loaded treats.

A lot of our brides are using dessert bars and creating “Love Is Sweet” signs to invite guests to join in the love. Plus, today’s economy bodes well to DIY wedding projects and these are a great party idea to bring all your bridesmaids together. Hungarian tradition is that the brides family brings desserts and cookies to the wedding reception as a sign of support and love. This is a great tradition to bring back! Include your friends and family when planning your dessert stand- invite them to give you the recipe and share their favorites with you in preparation for having your own kitchen and family “soon”!
