By Melissa of Lulu the Baker

seasonal soirees strawberry

Spring is here! Hooray, hooray! The color and sunshine of Spring are a most welcome change from the cold grey of winter. Flowers are blooming, the world is turning green, life is sprouting up through cracks in the pavement and pushing its way through the last vestiges of frost and snow. Soon enough, it will be time once again to take to backyards and parks and gardens to celebrate occasions big and small.
Nothing is quite as sweet in Springtime as fresh, ruby-colored Strawberries! These Strawberry Cheesecake Wonton Bites are effortlessly elegant and additively delicious. They’d look lovely on a Spring wedding dessert table or at a bridal shower brunch.

By Kelli Hall, Minted Event Stylist

diy grocery store bouquet I love the idea of a bride and her closest friends gathered on the morning of her wedding day, binding blooms and bonding over a creative project. In this spirit, making your own bouquet requires something of a laissez-faire approach, resulting in a bouquet that can take on a more personal and chic feel. To embrace this idea, I set out to the grocery store in a blind hunt for flowers that could be used to craft a pretty nosegay, worthy of a bride’s big day. I learned that, if you’re open and flexible, a diy bridal bouquet using supermarket flowers is surprisingly doable.
