    I would absolutely have been there with bells on as I love and adore this gorgeous blog and the exquisite reviews…so much inspiration! Unfortunately this little reader is all the way over in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia! :)

    I shall watch from afar and continue to gain inspiration and ideas for my own special day!
    Enjoy you lucky gals in NYC!! :)

    Keep the beautiful work coming!

  • The heart shaped balloons look great with all of the different heights. They look like poppies in the sky. I have Valentine’s Day on the brain, working on a V-Day inspired birthday party. The balloons are perfect. Thanks.

    I would love to go and I only live an hour outside the city! Martha Steward has wonderfully inspirational diy ideas on her website.

  • Wow – love those balloons, and yes they do look like poppies in the sky. What a wonderful creative touch for a wedding day. Shame the party’s so far away btw but I love your blog!

    Man, I wish i was on the east coast (kind of).

    But I do have a question that i have been dying for an answer to!!! PLEASE HELP ME!!!
    So, I’ve been collecting and adding to my vintage collection for my wedding decor: how do I assure myself that my guests will not take my centerpieces!??? I have been asking all of my friends what they or their families do, and most all of them say that people take them all!! :( Is this the pending doom to all of the money and work to my beauties???

  • Do you know where those SHOES are from in the bottom right picture–with the peacock feather on the back??!! I LOVE them and would love to know anything about them!!!!
    THANKS!!!

  • JC

    Wish I would have seen this post sooner. I totally would have flown out to NYC just to attend! I’m sure it will be amazing.
