If you are lucky enough to call yourself a Philadelphian, chances are you’ve visited the incredible Fishtown creamery, Little Baby’s Ice Cream. This small-batch and handmade ice cream oasis is home to a crew of super talented and creative people! We are proud to share a city with these creative ice cream geniuses and we can’t wait to be under the same glass roof with them at Love Is In The Air 2017.

Did we mention their long list of amazing and unique ice cream flavors? When we say unique, we MEAN unique. Little Baby’s specializes in surprising and delicious flavors like Balsamic Banana, Early Grey Sriracha, Everything Bagel…even Ranch! Rumor has it the Ranch pairs very well with their Pizza flavor. EEK! If this is a little too far out of your taste bud range – don’t worry. They have semi-traditional flavors such as Birch Beer Vanilla Bean, Chocolate Salt Malt, Sweet Potato Burnt Marshmallow or Cherry Hibiscus. Little Baby’s seem to have something for everyone, and that includes vegans. The menu is proudly 40% vegan!

AND just when you think Little Baby’s couldn’t get any cooler, they do. They take their treats on the road via freezer equipped tricycles. That means that you can enjoy their ice cream anytime, anywhere. Late night wedding treat perhaps? Little Baby’s Ice Cream tricycle is the perfect surprise for your guests at the end of your Philadelphia wedding or event.

Lucky for you, we are hosting Little Baby’s at Love is in the Air at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center this February. Early bird tickets to #LIITA2017 and more info here!

Love is in the Air 2016 Recapped

Love is in the Air 2016, was one for the books! Love wasn’t only in the air, this year it was in the vibe, on the tablescapes, in the flower arrangements, on the runway, in the delectable food and its presentations, and on the faces of everyone, presenters and attendees alike! Our event planning and design team had a fabulous time and each year seems to get better and better!

It truly was an experience from the moment our guests entered through the double doors of the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center, where staggered pillars of candlelight and my smiling team greeted them! The Horticulture Center is always an inviting space, especially in the depths of a cold winter and we are so happy that it was home to #LIITA2016.

Cocktail hour quickly led into a fashion show curated by Lovely Bride and Henry A. Davidsen and hosted by 2 Life Talent. Guests oo’d and ahh’d as fringe, beads and buttons, and even a female pants suit rocked the runway. Our LIITA partner, STARR events catered the entire evening and it was fabulous. Their food (almost) looked too good to eat!

Pollock Table

These are photos from my favorite table of the evening at Love Is In The Air. This table was inspired by Jackson Pollock. I loved the idea of blending vintage and modern for this table since Pollock’s art was very modern for his time. Maggpie Vintage Rentals vintage furniture pieces really made my idea come to life. The frosted glass votives, the handpainted runner, the painter palettes, everything made this table my favorite design of the evening.

These are pics from our Kahlo table at this year’s Love Is In The Air event. My inspiration for this this table was based on the life & art of Frida Kahlo. This table really came together from the handmade paper flowers, place cards, the cake to the place settings, florals, etc. It was one of my favorite tables of the evening.

It was quite an Evening of Luxury Bridal Design. Uncommon Events tables were designed with an artist’s inspiration; Maxfield Parrish, Seurat, Pollock, Kahlo and Picasso. The Brides, Grooms and their families enjoyed the delectable food and yummy refreshments provided by STARR Events. A whole host of incredible vendors helped make the evening perfect! Can’t wait until next year!
