Street Art is Alive in London!

I love to  travel and immerse myself in new and different cultures. These experiences inevitably show up in our event design, one way or another. Bits and pieces of what I find interesting will make their way into our  “art of the party”.

When in London, I went on a tour in the Shoreditch neighborhood. Street Art is a part of their community. Street Art was started by Banksy in the early part of this century. Today, there are many artists who follow in his footsteps, creating beautiful, visuals in the most unexpected, industrial places. Keep your eyes open, you may find Street Art in your area!

I love this artist and just saw another of his artwork in Ghent, Belgium

This was our tour guide, a Street Artist herself.

The last one I saw and a favorite of course!

When planning a wedding or special celebration with a group in London, a Double Decker Bus tour is a must. It is a fast and convenient way to orient your guests to the beautiful city of London. We added Champagne and Mimosas to our morning adventure. Two Blue Badge Guides added the story behind all of the sites.

I am always seeking the most amazing wedding cake and the pastry chefs who can create them. The ability to make an amazing looking cake that tastes delicious is an art. There are few that can manage that task.

As I travel abroad, I always snap images from windows. I like how the images portray the cake with the ghosted images of the surrounding buildings. These cakes were in a shop window in London.

The last cake belonged to a birthday girl (client). I commissioned Rachel Mount to create a “London” cake. It was simply stunning.

Whenever I travel anywhere, I always snap a pic of wedding gowns in stores I happen upon. This one struck me as chic and stylish. Found in Belgium.

Who doesn’t LOVE chocolate. So many brands, so many “artisanal” chocolate makers. When traveling, I indulge. This trip to Belgium and The Netherlands obviously offered some of the worlds finest chocolates and eye “candy” images (pun intended).

Chocolate store in the Hague

Yes! It’s a chocolate purse!

And a chocolate shoe!

Oops, this is unbelievable SOAP! Found in Ghent, BE.
