new Lonny site

I am loving the updated Lonny website- it is full of imagery, archives of past issues, and a new blog.  interiors galore!  here are some of my faves...


fun concept: sweet & spicy bridal shower

i have always loved this color palette of fuschia, orange & white, and of course you can't go wrong with peonies- they are simply luscious!  this party I saw on 100 layer cake  from Gus & Ruby is gorgeous!  photos are from scott clark


congratulations to Beka & Kimberly!

Beka joined Innove 5 years ago, and she has been a tremendous part of our growth.  I have enjoyed working with her so much over the last few years.  While I haven't worked with Kimberly, her eye for style and warm smile seem like a perfect match for Beka.   I am excited to announce that they are moving on to start a new venture of their own- Styled .  In addition to event styling, they will offer help for businesses planning photo shoots to create a perfect concept from start to finish.  Here are some photos from one of their latest projects for you to get an idea...

Beka & Kimberly- I truly wish you all the best & hope you rock the world with your keen sense of style!

ps.  of course Innove will continue to offer our services including planning, coordination,  event design, and stationery design!  Stay tuned for our new website design to launch this fall.


fashion fridays: a little girl can dream...

as i am browsing through wedding blogs, sometimes my little girls catch a glimse...  in this case, Shesby, a little lady from Haiti who stays with us when getting treatments at a local hospital,  peeks over my shoulder and says with much enthusiasm- "ooh wow, I can wear cowboy boots when I get married!"  gotta love it.

DIY: stamping with sugar

what a great idea from paper-source!  you can use powdered sugar and food coloring to create an edible design with stamps.  i am so excited to try this out...

etsy find: personalized hangers

while i was checking out a local photographer (who is awesome btw & i hope to work with soon), Alison Conklin, a photo of this great hanger caught my eye.

i searched etsy & alas i discovered LilaFrances. these are a perfect way to personalize those dress photos and priced so reasonably at only $25!  i can't wait to get one - how fun for a bridal shower gift!  my favorite is bride ♥ groom.  what is your fave?


i want these...

completely odd and random and ridiculously expensive, but would be oh so perfect for my laundry room! I would like 2 please.  restoration hardware via apartment therapy

this one from Steele is cool too, but the dimensions aren't making sense to me...


Fashion Fridays: cute robe

found this adorable robe from the supercute shop and blog, wedding chicks- perfect to wear during hair and makeup and can even be customized to your color preference. Another fab blog, Style Me Pretty, is offering a 30% discount if you enter code "stylemepretty"


jaw dropping gorgeous fundraiser!

I have been reading about events for so long now that it is not so frequently that I see photos that really make my heart pitterpatter. This mother/daughter tea fundraiser  that I saw on Amy Atlas' awesome blog, is so gorgeous that I just had to share here. Check out the house in the background- SO amazing! You can see a full story here .


etsy shop- A Remark You Made

Every Wednesday, I am going to celebrate hump day with a fun find etsy shop. There are so many creative and talented sellers on etsy, and a lot of my real life friends are not familiar with etsy at all, so I thought it could be fun to share them here.

So to start, I have found A Remark You Made . I wish I had found them a bit sooner because these bark card holders would have been perfect for a rustic wedding we just designed...

They also have a plethora of natural wooden buttons that could be fun for numerous projects including these very cute napkin rings with burlap & wood.

Lastly, I thought these ice breaker conversation starters could be cute for a hostess gift or even on the table at a shower.
