While stir sticks aren’t a new item, they are a big hit at any type of event. We want to show you that they can be used in many ways – not just to stir your drinks! We have three different shapes, circle, rectangle, and oval.

Let’s start out simple, our stir sticks really do spice up an event by sticking out of a cocktail. Take a look at these beautiful examples.

While our stir sticks are fabulous in cocktails, try them in unexpected ways too! Like in mini sandwiches:

Stick a donut hole or cookie on them and provide and drink & snack for your guests all-in-one!

The small details of the day really stand out and make the day something special. Like their handwritten table number rocks, delicate boutonnieres, and ribbon tassels.

This simplistic, elegant 1920′s-inspired wedding is everything you look for in a ballroom ceremony. The navy, cream, black, and gold color scheme is ad perfect addition to the light and airy reception space.

From the bride: ”We wanted to embrace the 1920′s feel of the ballroom and keep things clean and simple yet elegant and classy. We picked our colors to be navy, cream, black and gold. Very simple yet classic and a little flashy with the gold.”

I remember peeking in about an hour before and thinking “oh my gosh, this place is so pretty.” and knowing it was only going to get better! When the ceremony started it was just as breathtaking. Seeing Casey for the first time at the front of the aisle immediately put to rest any doubts I had about NOT doing a first look.”

While we waited outside the gigantic vintage revolving doors Casey and I just looked at each other and had a moment to breathe and really just take in the magnitude of it all and it was incredible.”

Kelley & Casey chose to use our Riviera Matchboxes in Natural Royal with Shiny Gold, which were the perfect touch to the plate settings. Keeping with their theme of simplicity, Kelley & Casey kept their design short, sweet, and to the point.

The beautiful Ontario wedding combines romance and whimsy in a way that is quite unexpected, but very memorable. The incredible floral arrangements mixed with pastel pink hues brought the ceremony and reception to life.

Lauren says: “I was never one of those girls that dreamt of my wedding since childhood. But when Andrew and I got engaged and started thinking about our vision for the big day, I slowly but surely became completely enchanted with the idea of creating a romantic, whimsical and laid-back affair in my hometown of London, Ontario.”

Andrew and I decided to go for a first-look; which probably turned out to be the most memorable moment of the day for both of us. Seeing each other for the first time in private was so intimate and personal; and also meant we got to spend our cocktail hour with our beloved guests – bonus!”

The bridesmaids added to the ceremony aesthetic with their flirty ivory lace dresses accompanied by lush hand-tied bouquets in soft pastels with pops of vibrant pinks and cascading satin and lace ribbons.”

nside the tent, we chose to keep most of the decor neutral using shades of ivory, cream and white, and played up texture with a billowing fabric ceiling liner, lace linen overlays and a tulle curtain backdrop complete with over 150 tissue flowers that my mother-in-law, bridesmaids and I made by hand in the months leading up to the wedding.”

We punched up the color with our sprawling pastel floral centerpieces – which were set on rustic wood slices atop of white scalloped cake-stands. Vintage vases with single stems and small arrangements were also scattered eclectically around the reception space. One of my favorite details was the dessert display we created using two old dressers that had once belonged to my Grandparents.”

Finding ways to tell our story and put personal touches into our wedding day made it all the more unforgettable and seeing the labor-intensive DIY projects come together so harmoniously was truly the icing on the (homemade) cake!”

After the ceremony, everyone hit the patio for hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, including ‘his and hers’ frozen daiquiris and pina coladas. I scored an adorable blush pink vintage couch set on kijiji that we set up as part of our outdoor ‘lounge’ area, complete with tables, rugs, pillows and throws for a little added comfort.”

I loved looking around the room throughout the evening to see our friends and family laughing, crying, and just genuinely enjoying each other’s company. We partied on the dance floor until the wee hours and Andrew and I stuck around at the end of the night to help with tear down. We were totally spent, but also totally elated and grateful to have had what we both felt was the most perfect day we could have ever imagined.”
