Tori Spelling: Designer Extraordinaire!

My love for all things Tori started back a few years ago. I believe it was around the time she had just hit it big on her reality show Tori & Dean: Inn Love!

Tori has impeccable taste when it comes to throwing a fab-tab party! I had a blast watching Tori explore the art of event design via her reality shows… and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to watch Tori & Dean tackle the world of wedding planning on their newest venture Tori & Dean sTORIbook Weddings this Spring.

So what would an event enthusiast/Hollywood Mom do to celebrate little Liam’s 4th birthday this past weekend? Well throw a huge Ghostbusters themed bash of course!

Love the details! Tori posted these pics on her Twitter page!

I’m already starting to feel sorry for my Mike… I have a feeling there is going to be a lot of paint, paper and helium in his Daddy days to come…

Here is a fantastic D.I.Y. straight from Think Garnish! The possibilities are endless…. sometimes it’s just changing the way you package something that gets everyone excited!

And here’s how!

The Professional B.C. Wedding Awards: Official Judge!

I was approached a few months ago to be an official judge of the Professional B.C. Wedding Awards! I was ecstatic! It is absolutely something I have wanted for a very, VERY long time (well not to be a judge per say, but to be actively indulged in the wedding and event planning industry)! B.C. has some of the best wedding vendors around, and it has been a fantastic experience getting to see their work!

These past few days as “official judge” have been incredible! I can’t even begin to tell you how much passion I have for wedding and event design.

When a wedding is themed, thoroughly planned and thoughtfully adorned with spectacular over-the-top decor it gets me all goose bumpy! Being unique AND doing it right is what makes me fascinated.

The world of weddings and events has drastically changed over the years- particularly over the past 5- and being unique and over-the-top is what is all about! Check out a few I have stumbled upon!

While you browse these fantastic finds, I am off to take care of a few last minute responsibilities of being a judge….. Enjoy! :)

Something I would like to call ….  Gracefully Humble. Click here for the entire feature and library of images from this Canadian beauty.

Vancouver Wedding as seen on Style Me Pretty

One I have shared before … but I can stare at it forever. It’s totally drool worthy!

They had an artist painting real-time during the ceremony people…. like seriously? Props to the wedding designer for thinking completely outta the box! The ghost chairs and clear crystal embellishments are a complete contrast to the textured and weathered walls of the old brewery. I don’t think this could have been pulled off more beautifully. I mean, it’s stunning!

And the bride is glowing in her Monique Lhuillier dress!  Click here for all the details!
