English Garden Wedding Inspiration

Posted on September 7th, 2013 by annalemberger

Catch the last, warm rays of summer with an elegant English garden party inspired wedding. Plus, an English garden wedding might just help quell that anxious waiting for the new season of Downton Abbey. Imagine: happy faces of fragrant blossoms line the aisles. Plush, green grass blankets the grounds. More lovely, blushing flowers – rivaled only by the bride – burst out of every corner and detail from the bouquets to the cake.  Rose petals rain down on the new couple as they take their first steps as husband and wife. Delicate floral patterned gowns adorn the guests. Magical. And of course the hats. Don’t forget the over-the-top sun hats and parasols.

The British are especially particular about their gardens; so, to do the English gardening tradition justice, make sure to do your research on the best blooms for late summer and early fall. Try a fragrant perennial like lavender; it’s a great choice that you can use not only in your decor but also in your menu, as a garnish or flavor. Think, lavender cupcakes! For roses that bloom later in the year, go for – what else – an English rose variety.

Blooming Romance Wedding Inspiration

Posted on June 25th, 2012 by annalemberger

Romance is in the air this week with our flower inspired wedding board!  Vintage touches, natural decor, and pops of bright, floral color will brighten your flower-powered wedding ceremony and reception. Fragrant, frosted, fabricated – showcase a variety of floral elements and textures beyond the fresh cut. I love the idea of felt boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen. They look awesome and will last forever in your wedding scrapbook! Having trouble choosing a color duo? Who says you need just two! Work in a spectrum of warm shades from sunny yellow to rosy pink to vibrant red. A shock of teal makes a fun statement against the the warmer tones. If there is not enough brightness in your wedding already, unite your lives with a beautiful candle ceremony.

Destination Graduation

Posted on April 30th, 2012 by annalemberger

It is almost May which means graduation for high school and college seniors is right around the corner! What better way to celebrate those years of achievements and hard work than with a fun graduation party. Knot the Groom has a plethora of party decor options that can be personalized with your grad’s name and school colors. If you are planning a small, intimate gathering with family and friends, a table runner is a wonderful way to spruce up a nice sit-down dinner. Most graduation parties, however, involve a lot of people coming and going throughout the day as they hop from one grad party to the next. With that in mind, consider setting up a buffet table with a larger, personalized table runner that draws attention and helps direct guests. Make sure to send invitations or announcements about two weeks in advance of the celebrations. It is always a nice gesture to send an invitation to people you know cannot make the party as well so they know of your accomplishment. And who knows, they may still send a card with some college (or life) fund money!

Celebrate special moments this spring with an enchanting garden themed tea party. Fragrant flowers, pretty pinks, vintage saucers, and scrumptious petite sweets will add extra charm to a lovely afternoon of tea and conversation. After tea, enjoy a stroll outside or through an indoor botanical garden if the weather isn’t in your favor. You will have your family and friends looking forward to all of your gatherings! Bridal showers, baby showers, and Mother’s Days are all perfect occasions for a charming and intimate afternoon tea. And since Mother’s Day is right around the corner (May 13th), it is time to plan some quality mother-daughter time. Show your appreciation for all of the moms in your life with a heartfelt gift as well! See my suggestions below.
