Grit + Gold designs an UP themed table for NACE DFW

Our table design begins with adventure. Our inspiration comes from the endearing movie, UP, but really tries to capture the loving nature in all children. We wanted to create a design that appealed to pint size adventurers but was still classic enough to entice those adults that realize you are never too old to have fun. We took our color yellow and added a variety of hues to create depth to the palette, and added a splash of gingham! Our hope is that children would immediately find a connection with the table, sit down and become a part of the script, and create their own adventure in the midst of the story.

All year we design weddings, engagements, showers and parties. It’s so nice and refreshing to get our hands on something that’s a little different and just simply put… FUN! We love kids, we love charities and we love our UP themed table for this year’s NACE DFW fundraiser benefiting Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. We want to thank you to the lovely sponsors who helped bring our vision together. A big thank you to the Mamones for the photos!

Great Gatsby Inspired Bridal Session with Lauren Peele Photography

We are so excited to FINALLY be able to share these beautiful images of our recent bride, Erin. Her marriage to hubby Shea took place at the Omni Mandalay last weekend. It was dripping with details all inspired by the art deco time period of the 20’s.

Here her beautiful sleek 20’s gown from Warren Barron Bridal paired with a soft, lush bouquet by Stems of Dallas created the perfect image for capturing. Photography by Lauren Peele and makeup and hair by Miss Painted Lady.

Navajo Themed Baby Shower for Caroline Creates

As soon as I heard Sweet Caroline was expecting another little girl, I knew we had to throw her a special shower. Caroline loves american indian decor and had decided to do the baby’s (name is a secret) room in navajo prints and patterns. With adorable details starting with lots of patterns, handmade treats, and ending with a fabulous custom tent. One of my favorite parts was the hoop station where each guest picked a fabric and made a hoop to be hung in baby’s room. So sweet!
