It’s crazy to think how quickly winter passed us by, although we admit, it was a little slow going at times… However, we couldn’t be more excited to put winter behind us and start our favorite time of the year, wedding season! Full of unique tablescapes, surprising themes, love, laughter, and all around fun, 2016 is sure to be one for the books! Be sure to keep up with all the beautiful images from this year’s weddings here on the blog. We promise not to disappoint.
We kicked this season off right with an ABSOLUTELY stunning display from Florals Etcetera and Lorraine Arthur Cakes. Let’s all just take a moment to pick our jaws up off the ground and bring our thoughts back from the English Rose Garden we’ve been transported to. Seriously though, this collaboration produced a super romantic, super whimsical wedding reception that leaves the eye wanting more. Thank goodness these amazing designers grace the Scoular Ballroom with their presence and creativity often, otherwise we might just have to start making our way around Omaha to see more of the magic.

- First you’ll need to make the blackberry coulis
½ pound fresh or frozen blackberries
½ pound super fine sugar
Juice of a fresh lime
Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan; cook until all the sugar is dissolved. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove the blackberry seeds. Pour blackberry coulis into a jar or container for pouring.
- Here’s how to make the Midnight Mule
In a copper mug or glass, pour vodka over ice. Add the blackberry coulis then top it off with ginger beer and stir. Garnish with mint and/or a lime slice. If you choose, you can also dress the rim of the glass with sugar and crystalized hibiscus flowers (as pictured).
