Pink, orange and yellow are perennially pretty party colors, but the addition of red, in this table designed by Gen Sohr for Southern Living, is incredible! The wallpaper Sohr used as a runner is brilliant as well! To see more, visit Gen’s blog.

I’m so happy to have a special guest blogger here today. Brittany started working with Merriment last year as an intern and continues to assist on event days. When she said she’d be interested in guest blogging, I took her up on it immediately, of course! Hoping to see much more of her around here. Today she has a great gift wrapping idea just in time for Mother’s Day.
I love the idea of using fabric for wrapping gifts. Not only is it clever and eco-friendly, it can be two gifts in one if you use tea towels or a vintage scarf. To secure the ends, tie them in a simple knot or secure them with a cute pin, button, or pretty ribbon to give the package an extra special touch. Also see more wrapping techniques here. Add a personal element to your wedding by wrapping small favor boxes in monogrammed cloth napkins or vintage fabric scraps.
We’re working on some photo booth concepts for a client, and, really, the options are endless. When you’re working with a blank 9′ wide space there’s so much you can do!
Fringe walls are always great backgrounds…
Paper daises, honeycombs and pinwheels, oh my…

Kate Spade’s mini party at Alt Summit looks like too much fun. Could totally see an “eye love you” concept coming to life for a wedding with black horn-rimmed glasses as the central design element. Speaking of, how much fun is this identity work by Sussner Design?
Loving all of the promotion for Kate Spade’s newest scent, Twirl, photographed by Phil Poynter and styled by Elissa Santisi. The creative team transformed a nightclub into a sparkly new year’s celebration, but it’s great year round party inspiration, no?
