Amélie-Themed Party Inspiration
Posted by Kate. Filed under bridal shower

If you haven’t seen the movie Amélie yet.. well, we highly recommend that you queue up your Netflix account.  It is so utterly sweet, colorfully cinematic, and all-around inspiring.  So inspiring, in fact, that one of our fave bloggers, City of Dionne, designed a girls get together based loosely on the movie!  Perhaps this might make a cute shower, or the décor elements suitable for a travel-themed wedding.  Either way- we had to share it!

The film is about a quirky young French woman who goes about her days doing good for others, while engrossed in a quest to solve a personal mystery.  All of the décor was specific to the movie… Like the gnomes!  (Amélie’s father had a gnome that traveled the world).  The menu was inspired by French cuisine, and the color palette reflected bold hues seen throughout the film.

For escort cards, Dionne used antique keys tied to name tags, and pinned them to a hand-drawn globe that documented the gnome’s travels. Cute, cute, cute!
How creative and beautiful- kale centerpieces!  Below, Dionne curated vintage tins and little childhood trinkets for added cinematic flair.As a child, Amélie liked to play with raspberries on her fingers….  We just love how Dionne picked up on all the sweetest particulars of the story.  Sigh… how fun.  You can see more of her brilliant décor and style ideas here!

Sometimes I wish I lived in Houston, just so maybe I could go to all the fun little parties Dionne has.  She is so cute and creative!  Her latest gathering was an outdoor, springtime potting party- complete with brightly colored sorbet.  How fun would this be for a little bridal shower?!

Posted by Kate. Filed under Things we heart

Our friend Dionne throws the absolute cutest parties… Instead of celebrating the superbowl last weekend, she had a pre-Valentine’s day get together with her best friends!  (That’s my kind of gal). She shared her inspiring set-up with us, which included vintage teapots, hand-cut hearts, fragrant ginger flowers, and lots and lots of chocolat!

See more from the party… and find more fun things by visiting her blog {City of Dionne}.

Have you seen the movie yet?  I haven’t, but I loooved the book.  The ultra-fabulous creator of the blog City of Dionne thought this would make a gorgeous party theme, and she went to it.  I love this concept as a shower for the jet-setting, yogini, or adventurous bride.  Check out the full feature here– including menu inspirations and more luxurious decor!

And what could be more fitting… the author of the book, Elizabeth Gilbert, has a new book out about marriage called Committed.  I’ve heard good things…
