This week is like my dream come true on the Southern Weddings blog! Not only do I love birthdays, but I love sweets. So today, we’re offering up TWO giveaways!

Emily was the first person who pointed out Sweeteeth’s amazing line of chocolate bars, bon bons and sauces to me. I was so excited to be able to partner with them for a giveaway. Really, y’all, just take a look! Isn’t your mouth watering?

Johnny (an Alabama native!), Sweeteeth’s owner and chocolatier creates unique chocolates in flavors that look as good as they taste. Plus, we love their fun names and cool packaging. Sweeteeth is based in Charleston, so we’re confident that these chocolately treats will add a yummy splash of the South to any wedding.

We’re taking a cue from Sweeteeth and getting creative with our desserts. That’s why we’re really excited to be giving away Courtney Dial Whitmore of Pizzazzerie’s book, Push-Up Pops! I wish y’all could see the recipes inside this thing. Only one word could describe them: yum. Who knew red velvet cake and banana pudding could look so adorable in a push pop?

To Enter: There are two ways to enter!
1. Leave a comment below telling us which chocolate bar speaks most to your sweet tooth OR which dessert you would put in a push pop!
2. Tweet “I just entered the Sweeteeth + Push-Up Pops giveaway on @iloveswmag!” Then come back here and leave a SEPARATE comment telling us you did so.

Win: A $50 gift card to Sweeteeth OR the Push-Up Pops book by Courtney Dial Whitmore!

This giveaway will close on April 13. Good luck y’all!

Don’t forget to enter our other birthday giveaways!

    I think I’d like to try the cinnamon, apple and pecan bar from Sweeteeth. Yum! Of course, the salted caramel also looks divine.

  3. avatar Emily Lawrence reply

    Sea is for caramel looks amazing! I am always up for a combination of salty and sweet.

  4. avatar Laura reply

    I think I would try a key lime pie in a push-up pop. Mmmmm, that sounds good!

  5. avatar Meg S reply

    If there were any feasible way to get a crepe in a push pop, I would be all over that.

  6. avatar Lindy reply

    Salted caramel… yummm!!!! And hi to Courtney, my sorority sister from Vanderbilt! A big WOO to you for your success as an author!!!

  7. avatar Olivia S reply

    I LOVE the idea of the ‘call of the wild bar’. Caramel, port wine, and chocolate? There is no possible way that could go wrong.

  8. avatar Laura P reply

    The ‘Sea is for Caramel’ Sweeteeth bar sounds delicious to me – I love that classic salty + sweet combo!

  9. avatar Laura reply

    Seriously, this week’s giveaways have made me hungry every time. The cinnapsis chocolate bar looks divine: cinnamon, apples, and pecans in chocolate!

  10. avatar Amy Kennedy reply

    Call of the Wild – port wine caramel – is there even a question!!!

  11. avatar Vanessa reply

    My family hails from Central America which means I like everything with spice. Combine that with peanut butter and you have a masterpiece. My vote is for the Peanut Butter + Chipotle, keeping my fingers crossed :)

  35. avatar Amanda Zerra reply

    I also just tweeted! @babyglitz

  36. avatar Brittney Perryman reply

    Narrowing my choice down to just one chocolate bar from Sweeteeth that I want to try was TOUGH! My first choice would have to be Call of the Wild! The name drew me in first and when I read the description, I WAS HOOKED! Dark chocolate and caramel that has wine in it?!?! YES PLEASE! In fact, I may just have to order a dozen or two! :)

  37. avatar Brittney Perryman reply

    I just tweeted! My handle is @britmperryman ! Here’s the link:!/britmperryman

Hi ladies and gents! As most of you know, we rarely feature guest posts on Southern Weddings (except for our lovely Southern Brides of the Month, of course!). That being said, we think you’ll enjoy this one. Courtney, from the popular party planning blog Pizzazzerie, is a Southern girl herself, and she’s planning a Southern wedding in Nashville this June. We asked her to drop by and share some of what’s inspiring her while planning her most personal party to date! — Emily

Hey, y’all! I’m visiting from Pizzazzerie to share some inspiration for my own wedding, which is on June 23 in Nashville, TN! It’s only a few months away (eek!), so I’m knee deep in all things Southern + wedding right now. Growing up in Charleston, SC and Raleigh, NC, I absolutely knew I wanted Southern influences in my wedding. However, being a blogger in the party/wedding realm makes things very hard when narrowing down and focusing in. So does Pinterest. Finally, however, I settled on a Kate Spade + J.Crew preppy look featuring kelly green and black/white stripes. Here’s some of what’s inspiring me:

Both images by JMM Photography, with planning by Yellow Canary Events

What I love about these gorgeous photos is the black and white striped ribbon detailing for paper goodies. This is an absolute must! My other favorite? The bow tie napkin – hello, LOVE! And bow ties are inherently Southern, making these perfect for my place settings.

Along with the touches of black + white stripes, I want a lot of greenery and pure white florals. I’ve been busy collecting several white pillars and “urn” pieces, like those above, to decorate our tables. Moss wreaths will hang from the back of the venue doors. (Our reception is at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, which guarantees us a lot of green!).

White peonies bundled together make an absolute gorgeous bouquet, don’t y’all think? Tie on a black + white striped ribbon and you have my wedding bouquet! My bridesmaids will also have white bouquets, just slightly smaller.

Their darling shoes are black, with a peep toe and have a bow! Swoon! …Now if only I could find the perfect wedding shoes, too.

My ladies will wear cocktail-length Kelly green dresses by Alfred Sung for Dessy. (Note: The SW gals couldn’t resist adding in this image from our past issue. Isn’t it perfect for Courtney??)

At our wedding, we’ll have white chivari chairs with black cushions, but this picture with the striped ribbon has me thinking about incorporating a bit of ribbon detailing into the head table chairs – or my chair & Chris’ chair! Cuteness!

Children are a big part of my life, and I will have three flower girls and one ring bearer with me on the big day. My little ring bearer was actually a part of my surprise proposal, so I’m oh-so-excited to put him in a little black and white striped bow tie for his strut down the aisle at Vanderbilt University’s chapel!

Favors are a total must at any event I throw, so my wedding will just kick it up a notch! I can’t decide on one favor, so I’ll likely have several. My Mom has been an inspiration for me in the world of parties and entertaining for years. I can remember sitting up on the kitchen counter and creating gorgeous pressed sugar eggs for Easter with her. For our wedding, she turned the idea into a mini wedding cake that opens up to hold little mints or other confectionery treats. I can’t wait to box up these baby wedding cakes for guests! I also think that black and white cookies will make an appearance somehow — they are my fave, and happen to fit our theme quite perfectly, don’t you think?

So there you have it! What do you think? I hope you love my wedding inspiration, and I can’t wait to have pictures back after the big day!

Thank you so much, Courtney! Belles, be sure to pop over to Pizzazzerie for more party inspiration, and to follow along with Courtney as she plans for the next few months!
