It’s been a while since I showcased a party inspiration on Pretty Tasty Things. Well, I’ve got a real good one for you today. Photographed by the oh-so-talented, Korie Lynn of Korie Lynn Photography, this Berry Tea Time Brunch was shot at James Monroe Museum in Downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia. Estate china and the venue itself were the two key points of inspiration according to the event planner, Ashley with CA Event Planning. James Monroe Museum has beauty in itself with a very quaint courtyard surrounded with brick, pops of color and historical atmosphere. The James Monroe Museum would be perfect for a smaller ceremony or reception; it gives a very intimate feel. Take a look at this beautifully done photo shoot.
They used soft colors of pink, white and green as their Berry Tea Time Brunch theme started to unfold.
Floral china was borrowed from Ashley’s great grandmother and the crisp white doilies where from her husband’s Granny. They also used baby food jars filled with jam as a gift for each guest.
On to the dessert table. WOW.
Who knew a cupcake could look that good? My favorite is red velvet with cream cheese, and it looks as if they had that too. Their cupcakes were done by Sweet Reasons Cupcakes.
Just look at that gorgeous ruffle cake by Fat Girl Cakes. I mean, seriously. I LOVE IT. I love the silver edging used on the fondant. Gives the ruffles some movement. Amazing job.
To add a playful side of the shoot they incorporated paper chains on the drink table.
