It’s such an old saying, and we all have said it and we all continue to say over and over that “Time flies” – It does seems that time does not only flies, but it flies faster every year, and even faster when you are enjoying life and having fun. All of this to say, are we really already in the middle of July? Where did the past 6 + months go? As we look forward to all the events we still have coming up in the next half of 2017, and considering we have “neglected” our blog for the past few months, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do a mid-year recap and quickly summarize all of the fun events we have already done this year.
We started the year with the cutest 1st year birthday party! We celebrated Bianca’s birthday with colorful flowers, fresh fruit in the sweetest farmer’s market theme. Still in January, we showered Lily Damico to welcome her baby boy Nicholas. It was a very adorable woodland. Moving on to February, we did a beautiful wedding for Natalie and Andrew at Carondelet House, and we are so excited to know her wedding is soon to be featured! (Stay tuned)
With a blink of an eye, we are already into March, where we planned 5 events: A Sweet Sixteen, 3 weddings and 1 beautiful Engagement Party. Did I mention that 3 out of the 5 events were all on the same day? On March 11th, the Detailists were hard at work! We started in the morning setting-up for Lindsey and Michael’s Engagement Party (be sure to catch more photos on Kara’s party Ideas) and by mid-day, Sandra and Jacky headed to Smoky Hollow Studios for Jen and Ed’s wedding, while Liz and I went to Carondelet House to set-up for Hannah and Josh’s wedding. What an eventful day, (literally) to say the least! Fast forward one week, and we are back at Carondelet to celebrate a very special Irish Wedding on Saint Patricks Day. Sophia and Doyle tied the knot in a green and fun celebration!!
Drumroll please… PANTONE’s 2017 color of the year: Greenery! This refreshing and revitalizing shade is the perfect shade for bride’s to incorporate into their weddings as it is symbolic of new beginnings. Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.
Is there such a thing as an Engagement Season?! You bet there is!
Engagement season starts at Thanksgiving, and in theory ends on Valentine’s day. Study shows that most couples get engaged during the following holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve and on Valentine’s day.
If you watch any TV, you will notice an increased amount of Jewelry, and engagement rings commercials during this time. (That is not by chance)
