A Maine Inspired Nautical Brunch

I hope you enjoyed the Guide to Planning a Nautical Party that we recently posted.   Today we’re sharing photos of a Nautical Brunch that we styled last summer and that was featured in two of our go to party and entertaining blogs:  Pizzazzerie and Swanky Chic Fete.  This brunch was a celebration of the many years I lived in Maine and the memories I have of summer days spent strolling around picturesque lobster fishing towns with my kids and hubby.

Nautical PartyThe focal point of the table was a gorgeous Sail Boat placed on a Vanilla- Raspberry Cake. I framed it by hanging a yellow Flag Banner that added a pop of color to the red, blue and white tablescape. I used many props like a Fisherman figurine, a wooden anchor, life guards and lobster buoys that I had been collecting from antique shops or small gift shops to create a true nautical atmosphere.

I tied nautical knots on the Hobnail Cake Stands where vanilla Cupcakes were displayed. Nautical bowls filled with tri-color popcorn displayed red, blue and yellow Candle Torches. I love how the Hot Air Balloon Paper lantern gave the table a nostalgic feel.

The food served consisted of savory and sweet bite size treats. I used Petite Cups to showcase chocolate chip mini Cheesecakes, lemon Petite Fours, mini cream cheese tomato- chives sandwiches and Quiche Lorraine. The Fruit Salads were served in Square Mini Glasses.5-159Nautical Party

Nautical Party Planning Guide

Nautical Party Planning Guide

A Nautical Party is a Summer Classic!  It’s such a versatile theme, with so many possible variations.  No matter the size of your party, it is very important the pay close attention to detail  and use the right decor to create a unique atmosphere.  We put together this Nautical Party Planning Guide to help achieve an amazing party.

Nautical Party Theme

Tips for Planning a Nautical Party:

1- Hunt for nautical decor in Flea Markets or Antique Stores.  Look for sailboats, anchors, sailor knots, lighthouses, shells and old bottles.   It’s not only fun but also, you would be amazed by the treasures you could find at a fraction of the cost.

2- Choose a color scheme.  There are so many possible color combinations:   The traditional navy, red and white or you can add other colors like yellow, turquoise or orange for a unique touch.

3- The right nautical party supplies can help you create the  atmosphere you are aiming for.  Flag Banners are wonderful because they create the illusion of a sailboat.  Mason Jars are perfect for serving fresh drinks.  Our Sail Boat Petite Cups and our Tri-Color Petite Blossom Cups are an adorable way to add a unique touch to your nautical theme.  Food presentation is key:  Wooden berry baskets, mini margarita glasses and deli baskets are a fun and easy way to display it.  Nautical-party-supplies-viablossom

4-  Get creative with food by turning hot dogs into sail boats or croissants into crabs!  A backyard lobster Boil would never disappoint, especially if you have adult guests.  Having lived in Maine for about 10 years I had to include my very favorite: Lobster Rolls!  Fish and Chips and Crab Cake Sliders are also a great way to tie the theme.  Using Flag Picks to decorate the food is such an easy way to add a nautical touch to any food.

5-  Desserts and refreshments:  Shaping fruit like sea creatures is simply genius!   Turning traditional Cake Pops into Sail Boats is such a creative yet easy idea.  I also love how a Mini Donut can become a life saver!  A Cake Pop Floral arrangement with nautical colors will sure make a beautiful and fun centerpiece.  Starfish and lobster lollipops are always a hit among the children.  These decorated cookies and this sailor fondant cupcake topper are just adorable!

A Fabulous Oscars Inspired Party

Are you excited about the Oscars?  If there is an award show that I do not miss every year, it has to be the Oscars.  I don’t know if it’s the glitz and glamour or the movies, but it is the perfect excuse to put on a fabulous dress and throw a Red Carpet Hollywood Party.  The dynamic sister duo, Annie and Maria, behind Posh Studio outdid themselves by creating a stylish Oscars atmosphere for one of their clients.

IMG_2942newAnnie and Maria thought of every detail.  From the shimmering backdrop to the Oscar Statue Party favors to the delicious desserts.  The use of violet lighting gave the dessert table a magical Hollywood touch.

IMG_2933newThe Star Chocolate Lollipops were simply perfection.  The lemon vanilla cupcakes were decorated by Annie with retro star fondant toppers.

IMG_2932newThese Oscars gold short bread cookies sure made the cut!

 

IMG_2931newI particularly love how they displayed the awards in a red carpet.  Each guest went home with a bag full of goodies and an Oscar Statue.    Each statue had a special award:  The Funniest, The Wiser, The Friendliest, among others.  How clever!

IMG_2929 (1)newAnnie and Maria run a thriving event planning business, aka Posh Studio, in Barranquilla-Colombia that caters to any type of special event from birthday parties, baptisms, teenage parties to weddings.  Stay tuned for more Party ideas from the fabulous Posh Studio.

Godiva Truffles 3 Ways

Have you tried the New Godiva Flights?  If you are a Chocolate lover like me, you have to try them!  They’re a concoction of perfectly paired flavors that will unveil new textures and aromas to your palette.  After trying them, I totally feel like throwing a Truffle Tasting Party!  No doubt it will be greatly appreciated by my lovelies!

Godiva Truffles

When thinking about a Truffle Tasting Party I cannot think of a better accessory for these little indulgences than Petite Blossoms Cups and Petite Cups.  They are actually perfect for showcasing exquisite chocolate and for organizing them in a neat way.  Each Flight is meant to be eating in a special order for an intense chocolate experience, so instead of piling the Truffles in a Cake Stand I have 3 ways of showcasing them.  By displaying them in the Paper Flowers or the Petite Cups you can add a touch of femininity and originality to your sweet table.   They can be arranged in the same order of  each Godiva Flight box.  For a decadent finishing touch to a fun evening, send your guests home with a Cupcake Topped with a Truffle as a Party Favor.

A Mysterious Halloween Party

20new

We created a Halloween Party that could be enjoyed by all guests, ages 0 to 100. While sophisticated and dramatic for the adults, it was intriguing for the little ones.   Our unconventional Halloween color palette was composed of black, pinkish wine, silver and white. This color palette added mystery and drama to the decor.

Crows were the focal point because of their mystifying demeanor and elegant glossy black feathers.  The crow theme was carried through the whole dessert table:  in the spectacular table runner, in the bunting and in the desserts which were decorated with fondant black birds.  Even the branches at the center of the table had black feathers.

To create a sumptuous atmosphere, two ornamental black chandeliers were hanged.  They were paired with two black candelabras on the table.
