Hello, darling reader. Chelsea here. My recent obsession is with the ladies at The Party Parade, a cake-making, party-creating, and celebration-loving duo that inspire me with their Instagram everyday! Recently, Mercedes and Nat did the most amazing Galentine's Day Party Shoot. Happy Galentine’s Day today, y’all!
GET LOST IN ALL THE FUN. Notice how their table is so full, so packed with happy! To watch the video of the party, click here! For the full post (they always have excellent tutorials), click here.
And that is not the half of it! The Party Parade is truly a fount of joy in party form, which, if you know me, you know that these are my soul sisters. Check out another of their masterworks, A SPONTANEOUS FLAMINGO PARTY. What do I love? Oh, I don’t know… maybe it’s all the pink, the confetti, the blooms, the cake, or the bubbly? Duh! Pretty much everything makes me love this quick little photo shoot. This flamingo party post is the post that originally caught my eye, and what got me to start following the Party Parade. YOU SHOULD, TOO! Go follow them on Instagram this instant! To see the full post, click here, and feel your creative spirit become more buoyant!
I would be remiss if I didn’t show you some of these ladies’ insanely detailed and character-filled cakes. Here are a few of my favorites.
Finally, Mercedes and her beau, named TJ, had a spectacular engagement party (#MercededAndTJInLove) that shows off the softer side of the Party Parade. It's in the more simplified, organic style that sprang forth from Anthropologie a couple years back and has taken the wedding industry by storm! While perusing, try not to drool (especially over that GIGANTIC fruit and charcuterie board)…
So, if these gorgeous images haven’t pulled you in and made you feel more happy to be alive, I don’t know what will! Again, please go follow these uber-talented women, and stay tuned for what other pretties they create next!
