Things That Inspire Us In The Summer

Can you believe it is almost the end of July, where has the summer gone? Seriously, it's been a weird summer filled with lots of rain and not as many sunny days as we would like. But the fresh air and warm summer sun that we have experienced has left us once again feeling inspired by our surroundings. So what has our creative juices flowing this season? Here are some of our favourite summer inspirations!

1. Water

Summers in Muskoka are all about being on the water, so of course we love the idea of incorporating this into some of our designs. Whether you're having a picnic on the dock, hosting your rehearsal dinner on a boat, having an intimate wedding ceremony on a floating dock, or use the shore line to set up your sweets table to really give your event that wow factor. When it comes to incorporating water into your big day there are so many ideas that come to mind!

2. Fresh Fruits

There is something so fresh and fun about incorporating fruit into your design. Why not think outside the box with your centrepieces and do a lively fruit garland, or switch up the tent cards and create a unique place card using a piece of fruit and some custom calligraphy. Another summer fav of ours is adding fruit to your cocktail, giving it that summer pop that elevates your design with a simple touch.

3. Strappy Sandals

No body wants to be in closed toe shoes when it's a hot summer day, and strappy sandals are such a casual way to dress up an outfit. Our favourite thing right now? Why not skip the traditional bouquet and give your bridesmaids a unique floral piece for their shoe!

4. Icy Treats

There is no better way to cool down in the heat than with an icy treat. Muskoka recently got its very own Sweet Jesus ice cream shop, which of course we couldn't resist checking out (talk about ice cream luxury!) One thing we often stress to our couples is that guest experience is what makes a wedding memorable. And one way to ensure your guests get a unique experience is by bringing in some kind of icy treat stand to help stay cool (especially with an outdoor wedding in the summer). Some of our favourites include The Pop Stand, Dolce Gelato, and Sweet Sammies
