Jazziest of Fourths

I hope you enjoyed your holiday weekend!  Mine was absolutely perfect – packed with family, friends, fireworks and so so SO much fun!
I’m excited to share some photos from our Bliss 4th of July Celebration!  All of the photos [shot by the adorable Katie from Studio This Is] are featured  here, where you can also read a bit more about our inspiration…but I wanted to share a few of my personal favorites:
As I described in the feature on Strictly Weddings, we wanted our 4th of July celebration to ooze with glamour and have an ultra fancypants feel.  Sequins [along with our stripes]!!  So we decided to host the evening on the rooftop of Katie’s home – under the stars, with jazz in the background, the skyline in the foreground and plenty of fun – all loosely inspired by the allure of the Golden Twenties.
Our single dining table was dressed in a dazzling rose gold sequin linen, layered with place-settings of gold, personalized placards featured each guests’ silhouette in gold foil and a rich navy box was  mounded with dozens of the most beautiful Red Charm peonies I could have ever daydreamt of. 
Martini’s and bubbly, for the most indecisive guest!
The most richly-hued [and deliciously-tart] cherries, ever!
A sparkler bar to illuminate the night after the golden sun melted past the horizon.
Katie and I can never. shut. up.
We Bliss Belles and Beau always love a fun party game!  Here we tried to match the preferred cocktail to each appropriate person.
And the evening continued waay past all of our bedtimes…but we simply couldn’t have it any other way!
