Featured in 100 Layer Cake: bright and cheery 30th birthday party

Surprise! Kaella Lynn Events is featured on 100 Layer Cake today for styling a 30th birthday party.  The birthday girl (also a fabulous wedding photographer) Edyta Szyszlo, hand-crafted all sorts of decor goodness and needed someone to put together final details and style the soiree. Enter Kaella Lynn Events as stylist! Check out 100 Layer Cake for the full story and gallery.

From party hats to polka dot balloons, the party was bright and quirky with hints of 80’s glam. Edyta gives tips on her DIY decor here. Lauren Sweet Cakes provided cake pops in a display that was so pretty guests were hesitant to dig in. However, after just one taste all bets to be off! The fantastic photobooth by TomFoolery SF was rockin’. Check out their amazing 4 minute summary of the photobooth fun here!

Inspiration Board: Moody Eggplant + Teal

Fall has officially arrived and with it comes beautiful deep and bold hues. KLE welcomes this contrast to the bright, punchy colors of Summer. One deeply romantic Fall color combination I’m loving right now is eggplant and teal. It’s earthy, moody and luxurious – a perfect palette to welcome the cooler season.

Velvet is a great texture to pair with this rich color combo. The velvet wedges pictured below are super luxurious, and they are from TopShop!

Currently Coveting: Dahlias

There’s no denying it’s Dahlia season. Each week at the farmer’s marker the selection gets more and more bewitching with colors ranging from soft pinks and whites to deep plum and burgundy. These pretty flowers make a great impact both alone and mixed with a variety of blooms.

Planning your wedding for this time next year? I highly recommend these beauties!

Inspiration Board: Polka dot + Marigold

Today’s inspiration board was inspired by this lovely vanity design. I adore how the marigold compliments the polka dot wallpaper in a way that is both vintage and modern. While the polka dot is graphic and bold, the marigold is soft and whimsical. The perfect combination for a wedding palette, don’t you think?

DIY Business Cards

Excited to share my latest project with you – DIY Kaella Lynn Events business cards, which I made for ISSE Carmel (Click on the link for behind the scenes from that amazing 2-day experience!).

I typically have beautiful letterpress business cards from the lovely Aerialist Press, but was running low without enough time to order a new batch before ISSE. Upon finding out we needed to provide 100 business cards at registration, I set out to craft some for the occasion! Although my letterpress cards perfectly represent the Kaella Lynn Events brand, it soon became evident this was a great opportunity to show off my creativity. Scroll down to view the fun!

After a trip to Paper Source and Japanese stationery shop, Maido, I laid out the supplies and dedicated Sunday to crafting 100 business cards.

If you haven’t noticed by now, this lady is a little infatuated with stripes *wink wink.* And, because I hope to add a bit of sparkle to everyone’s day, a pinch of glitter was the final ingredient.

I attended ISSE with 100 hand-crafted business cards, and even received several compliments! One lovely attendee told me they stood out to her most among the pack, which made me feel really warm and fuzzy 🙂

With a couple slight adjustments, these could be a regular KLE hand out at bigger events and seminars! What do you think?

Joie de vivre!
