{Real Party} Happy New Year

2011 is the year that Sophisticated Yum will officially be launching itself into the world of sweet event styling and design so what better way to do this than with a celebration on New Year’s Eve.  Inspired by Anders Ruff’s Hollywood glam NYE printables, the design used black, teal and a touch of pink.

Wishing you all a wonderful 2011!

{Real celebration} A Touch of Vintage

It was a perfect day with the sun shining and a slight breeze in the air.  A gorgeous bride, a dapper groom, both totally in love with each other.  You could see it in their eyes, their smiles and in their first kiss as husband and wife!  What a privilege it was to share that special day with Nia + Johan. 

As frequent beach goers, Nia + Johan chose to incorporate a marine theme into their wedding along with a touch of vintage.  As the reception was going to be held at Akuna Bay marina, it was certainly fitting.  To keep the reception and afternoon teas fresh and unique, I decided to focus on the vintage look for the afternoon tea.  As it was a fun and casual affair, I came up with a summery vintage inspired picnic setting, complete with picnic baskets and gingham tablecloths in a gorgeous yellow. 

The table was filled with delicious goodies, both sweet and savoury and the kitchen was a hive of frenzy as family and friends worked hard to keep the hungry tummies filled.  Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to capture the table complete with food, there were just too many people!
