June Bonus Style Board: "Lemon-Lime Time"

Our June bonus board is inspired by Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a 501c non-profit organization dedicated to helping find a cure for childhood cancer. It was first started by Alexandra Scott (1996 – 2004), a little girl who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma – a childhood cancer and since its induction has not only spread awareness of the various forms of childhood cancers that affected millions of children every year, but has also raised more than $40 million dollars in funds to help find a cure.

We decided to do a bonus styleboard this month to not only highlight the various stylish items and looks that can be achieved using a lemon and lime palette, but to also help spread the word on Alex’s Foundation.

Instead of a cash bar at your event, try holding a lemonade-themed drink bar with a Tip Jar for donations. All the tips collected would then go as a charitable contribution on the behalf of your guests towards Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation! To learn more about Alex’s Cause, click the banner below.

Have fun planning your lemon-lime themed event!

Hugs & High Heels,

June Where to Buy List : "Surf & Sand"

Tablescapes, Decor & Favors:

We chose the tablescape by Martha Stewart for its elegant, yet beachy, feel. The red coral (or painted manzanita branches, if coral is unavailable) adds just a hint of extra color while the brown sets a glamorous tone. Add an assortment of sea shells, cattleya orchids and light blue candles [set in sand-filled glass globes] to punch up the tablescape, while cream-colored china finishes off the look. to really push the elegance factor, a capiz shell curtain adds just the right touch when draped from the ceilings.

To view the inspiration table and see the list of suggested tablescape items, go to: http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/photogallery/non-floral-centerpieces#slide_12

For the favors, we also turned to the incomparable Martha Stewart for inspiration and knew we’d struck gold when we saw the tiny sandpails filled with rock candy “rocks”! It’s such a simple – yet fun – touch that you and your attendants can easily make for your event. The tags are easy to do on a printer (the wording is “A pail of sweet treats”), then you cut out the strips and wrap them around the pail’s handle, and secure with double-sided tape. Fill with candy and set in a flat tray with turbinado sugar “sand”.

To view the instructions, go to: http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/photogallery/candy-favor-ideas#slide_10

For the rock candy, we suggest the following confectioner: http://www.charlieschocolatefactory.com.  Or if you’d like, you can fill the tiny pails with chocolate seashells. We found the perfect seller on Etsy to buy your custom seashells from: http://www.etsy.com/shop/sweetleslie540?ref=seller_info

The chuppah is inspired by one that was featured on the South Florida Wedding Designs site. They used bamboo poles to form the basic frame, then draped opaque chiffon over the tops and down the sides. The tiebacks are clusters of flowers and greenery and there is a beautiful floral arrangement adorning the bower. It’s the perfect setting for saying your vows!

Invitations:
