She does.

To make up for my lack of party posts lately (I have been cooped up studying and job hunting instead of dreaming up lavish parties) I figured that I would go all-out for this weekend and give you a party post to drool over for the next few days. Well, maybe it's not the party that I would imagine for myself, but this one is especially for my newly engaged friend over at Alison Reid Style. She has been sending me ideas over non-stop (she makes planning so much more fun than it ever should be) and I thought no better way to help her out a touch than by making up an inspiration board just for her. Keep reading after the jump for more details! File as no bridezilla here.

  • The inspiration: The decadence of one of Gatsby's grand parties on the lawn
  • The setting: Private house with surrounding rose gardens, late afternoon into night with lights strung in the trees and candles on the tables
  • The attire: Black-tie (tux without tails and long dresses) with just a touch of 1920s elegance
  • The colors: Light pink, gold and white in a backdrop of green garden loveliness 
  • The flowers: Peonies, hydrangeas and tons of roses
  • The food: Multiple buffet style with signature cocktail like The Honey Badger
  • The reception: A jazz band, dancing until dawn and never-ending champagne
