This beautiful VINTAGE SPRING + EASTER PICNIC PARTY was submitted by Jennifer Bell of Discarded Couture.
What a lovely party in a lovely setting! Some of my favorite party ideas in this spring celebration are:
The vintage bike up against the tree
The vintage lace
The vintage bunny + Easter tags
The woodland party elements
Jennifer said this about planning the party- “I love Easter, so I created a girl only upcycled party picnic. It was a fun day. All of the items you see in the photos are repurposed.”

This beautiful JEWELRY THEMED SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY LUNCHEON was submitted by Alexandra Doudian of Enchanted Events & Design. Alexandra was asked to design an event for her client’s mother, who unfortunately, was robbed 2 weeks before her birthday and 4 generations of jewelry was stolen! Her client decided to throw a jewelry themed surprise luncheon for her mom. She asked all of the guests to bring one pair of earrings as a gift for the birthday girl. What a tender idea!
Alexandra said- “I was very inspired by this story and pulled together a simple design with hints of vintage jewelry. The color palette for the party was pink, cream and white with lots of wood accents. The party had a combination of modern colors with rustic accent pieces.
For the dessert table I ordered some fabulous custom cookies with beautiful cameos featured on each one. This was huge hit as it closely resembled one of the birthday girl’s favorite broaches which was lost. I also included strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, strawberry parfaits, mini donut rings, strawberry whoppers and a lovely strawberry cake. I used cherry blossoms in white bottles as the backdrop of the table so the beautiful wallpaper could still be visible.
For the lunch the ladies were served a variety of salads and roasted vegetables, a mixed juice spritzer, white wine sangria and lemon water. All the tables had fresh flowers which were purchased the day before in the LA flower district and at a farmer’s market by myself and the hostess. At the end of the event all the ladies took home strawberry bath salt favors.”

Chris said… “What could be more glamorous than black, white, silver & shimmer? With elements such as fluffy marabou boas, white hydrangeas, and shiny mirrors, there is a winter wonderland effect, while shimmery ornaments add a Christmas-y touch.”
