Wine Themed Dessert Table l Housewarming


This past Saturday, I had such a blast creating a wine themed dessert table for friends of mine who were hosting a housewarming party in Quincy, MA. The table creation had desserts from Cannolis, Red Velvet Cupcakes, Mini Tiramisus and many more mouth watering treats. When I was imagining the dessert table in my head, I wanted it to look simple and clean. My friend, Jane loves red wine so I took that idea and used it for our theme.
I decorated the table with bottles of Red Wine that Jane and Mike already had in their home. On the corners of the table, I placed couple of wine glasses and artificial grapes to give the table dimension and personality. The grapes were purchased from the Dollar Tree in Hanover, MA and the place cards were made at the Paper Store in Higham.

* Sorry for the low quality photos. I had left my camera at home so the next best thing was my Iphone.
The mini Cheesecakes, Fruit Tarts, Cannolis and Tiramisus are from Konditor Meister located in Braintree, MA
The fruit tarts were amazingly DELISH and the colors fit right into the theme 
I purchased these chocolate chip cookies from a local bakery and placed them into clear baggies and tied it with a string. The cardstock, I cut them into square shapes and bought a “Thank You” stamp from Michaels Store and stamped the tags.

Congratulations to my good friends, Jane and Mike, on their gorgeous new home.  I can’t wait to stop by for our wine and cheese nights! Love you both.

Featured on Engaged & Inspired!


We are so ecstatic to be featured on Engaged and Inspired today! Ashley and Chris' stunning engagement session was held at Houghton's Pond in Milton, MA. The lovely Nicole of Nicole Chan Photography took these breathtaking photos. If you don't remember, Nicole and I had worked together in the past on a Valentine's Day Style Shoot which was featured on the Southern New England-Chatty Brides.

Before we decided on the pink and gold themed e-session, Nicole showed me a few photos and said, "Linda, I want something very simple". I knew what she meant, she wanted to make sure all the props and details weren't too overwhelming that it could take away from the gorgeous couple. (Which was simply impossible I tell you. Ashley and Chris was quite good looking). I created a dessert table that had stacked miniature cupcakes, lollipops, marshmellows and cookies that were created by Jennifer from Cookie Creatives. If you haven't tried Jennifer's decadent cookies, you must! It's so delicious and Jennifer is probably one of the sweetest people I've ever worked with. Another prop I brought along were couple of old wooden chairs that's probably been sitting in my parents basement for years. Thanks Mom and Dad!

I really hope you all enjoy the photos and a very special thanks to Engaged & Inspired for the lovely feature!

Featured in Southern New England Weddings!


Last night, I got a surprise text from Nicole of Nicole Chan Photography that our collaboration on a Valentine's Day Style Shoot was featured in Southern New England Weddings’ Chatty Bride blog ! I had so much fun organizing the details and styling the shoot. I also got to work with some of the greatest Beantown vendors . Thank you  Chatty Brides for featuring us.

Nicole's description of the style shoot: "Indulge in soft romantic tones and whimsical elegance collide in a style shoot dedicated to the colors of Valentine's Day coordinated by Linda Lee of Lemon Drop Team Weddings , photographed by Boston-based wedding photographer Nicole Chan.  The adorable palette emphasizes gentle pinks and grays rather bold traditional Valentine's reds.  Even if it's a Hallmark holiday, there's something for everyone, even the guys!  We've included a swanky cigar rolling station for the men in addition to our beloved sweets.  Brace your sweet tooth because most won't be able to refuse the delicious gourmet marshmallows party favors and sweetheart candies featured in this inspiration."

Edible Favors l A Dozen Eggs Bake Shoppe


So how do you really feel about wedding favors? Although some favors can be remarkably charming, it can get expensive and are pretty useless. Most of the time, they end up hinding in your house somewhere. One type of favors I do enjoy are edible ones! Edible favors could be decorated any way you want it! Whether it's a couple's initials, a picture of a bride and groom or my favorite type,  a cookie that represent your home town.  So, when I browsed upon a website called, A Dozen Eggs Bake Shoppe , (based in Vermont, but delivers anywhere in the U.S.), and saw they had a section on, "Beantown Cookie Favors", I jumped up and down with joy! I was born and raise in Boston and these beautifully decorated cookies resembles so much of some of Boston's must see sights. The Citco Sign in Kenmore, the Swan Boats in Boston Commons, the MBTA and of course our beloved Red Sox team.

A Dozen Eggs Bake Shoppe , has a huge variety of cookies. They are bagged individually, comes with a complimentary gift message for each one, and remains fresh for about four to six weeks. They require a minimum of twelve favors per order, but I'm sure that wouldn't be a problem for most of us! If you order fifty or more, you'll qualitfy for the discount. I'd recommend trying the cookies before ordering them in bulk. You can purchase a sample box for $5.95 plus shipping.

Susan & Moses' Brunch Reception Wedding l Part 1 of 2


The wedding I'm going to blog about is one that is very special to me because the beautiful bride is my older sister. Susan and Moses, “SuMo” were living in New York City when they got engaged, but without a doubt, they knew an intimate and fun wedding in Boston was what they were striving for.

My sister needed help, especially since they lived over 200 miles away.  I accepted the honor of planning their 119 guest wedding. “SuMo” came back one weekend a month to meet with me and organize all the details for the wedding. For months, we phoned, emailed, and texted each other A LOT!  The three of us collaborated and worked on all the creative details which came out pretty amazing.  Some of the “do it yourself” (DIY) things that were involved for the wedding were the invitations, save the date cards, floral centerpieces, and props for the photo-booth.

Moses was very involved throughout the whole wedding process. What a keeper I must say. Being a graphic designer , his skills came in very handy.  He designed the save the date cards, invitations, and drink menus.

Susan and I had to create some props for the photo-booth but our amazing photographer, Joshua Behan , came with many fun props as well.  A couple of details I’d like to share that we used are a cork board for the seating chart, which we found at Michael’s Craft Store  and bird cages, purchased from , that we decorated which were placed at their own station for the guests to put their cards and blessings for the bride and groom.

A few days before the wedding, we were nervously waiting for the arrival of the Hydrangeas that were ordered online from BJ’s Wholesale Club so the centerpieces can be arranged. When the day of the wedding finally arrived, all the DIY’s were absolutely perfect!
