Welcome to The Sweetest Occasion!

Oct 13

Today is a really exciting day for me as I welcome you to the all new The Sweetest Occasion! Since getting married just shy of three months ago, I’ve been hard at work developing this site as a source of inspiration. Getting to today has been a true labor of love and a great collaboration between myself and some of the most talented people I know – my good friend Carolynn of Two Brunettes, who helped turn my vision into an incredible site design I could never have dreamed up myself, and Debi Zeinert of The Blooming Quill, a wonderfully gifted calligrapher who continually amazes me not only with her beautiful work, but also with her heart. A big thank you is also owed to Ami Price of Elizabeth Anne Designs who is a dear friend and an incredible mentor.

What makes this blog different from all the others you read and love? The Sweetest Occasion is all about inspiration for events large and small, occasions of all shapes and sizes. From weddings to birthday parties to casual dinner parties to backyard picnics, I hope to help inspire all of your party planning adventures. In the coming weeks I’ll be filling the Sweet Inspiration blog roll with links to all of my favorite blogs so you’re never at a loss for great ideas. For readers located in Upstate New York, the vendors guide will be a much needed resource for brides, grooms and hosts looking for inspired, talented and reputable event professionals to make their ideas come to life. I’ll also be sharing details of my adventures in event coordinating and styling. There is much to come and much to share and I can’t wait to get started!

Perhaps most exciting in the near future – I still owe wedding recaps and lots of photos to all of my blog friends who have been reading my blog since the beginning, which includes details and tutorials for the best of my DIY projects. Stay tuned – there are many sweet treats to come!
