In the fall, my baby brother is getting married (the last of 5!) and I am so excited for the next few months. Why? Because I absolutely love all the wedding festivities that lead up to the wedding. From the engagement party to the bridal showers, bachelor or bachelorette party, and wedding rehearsals. But I totally get, as a bride planning, one of your biggest concerns is your budget and the cost starts to add up. I have some great news. You don’t have to sacrifice style any longer. I am super excited to share with you that we have collaborated with our friends at Harlow & Grey to bring a fresh look and easy take on all these events. The founders, Jeanne and Gloria, created a beautiful line of modern paper party goods that are so chic and affordable that your guests wouldn’t know it. In fact, they might just want take it home with them. Trust me, while creating this shoot, I had hard time parting with it too. I really hope at the end of this post and after you view the three looks, you will be inspired that paper cups, napkins and plates doesn’t have to be boring. With the right elements (ahem, using Harlow & Grey) not only will it be beautiful, but it would be oh so good for the wallet too!

P.S. If you head over to their site, they are offering all UE readers free shipping when you sign up for their newsletter! So great! You can thank me later.


Turn the drinks in your paper cups into stunning cocktails! Inspired from the flavors from the drinks you can dress it up with a dash of florals or fruits. If you’re feeling fun, add a stick stirrer.
