You might not know this about Jesi Haack Design… but we’re pretty much obsessed with ABC’s The Bachelor. And proud of it! Every week at our crafting meetings you’re sure to find a group of girls knee deep in glitter and dye talking about what happened on the show that week. So needless to say we we’re super excited to be asked to design Desiree Hartsock’s bridal shower! Check out some of our favorite photos below and see even more on Inspired by this!
Backdrops are really our jam we love creating a dramatic focal point for all the important events in a wedding. The ceremony, the cake, and even the photobooth! And as Julia Child famously said “a party without cake is just a meeting” so today we have a round up of our top ten dessert backdrops. These backdrops are some of the most pinned, liked, tweeted and talked about backdrops we’ve designed as well as being our some of our personal favs.
This glitzy piece of disco fun from Kate & Jon Paul’s modern Palm Springs wedding was such a sparkly fun surprise for the guests!
On the left is our handpainted glam chevron backdrop from Lin & Michael’s very glam wedding. On the right our rad backdrop from Alicia & Scott’s super fun wedding (or as we like to call it the ‘Beard and Teeth Wedding’)
This gorgeous yarn pom pom backdrop fit in perfectly with the dreamy Big Sur coastline from Holly & Ethan’s Bohemian Wedding!
We’re you wondering if we sewed? Because we do. We also have a thing for L.A. So do Lindsey & Aaron.
Alright this one is from a recent wedding at The Fig House (blog post coming soon!) but we just love fringe too much to leave it out.
This lovely fabric creation is from one of our all time fav weddings Shannon & Nicks 60′s Romance Wedding at The Smog Shoppe.
On the left we sourced vintage crocheted doilies to create this stunner from Ashley & Tyman’s wedding. And on the right we have a FAB laser cut(and mirrored!) totally retro glam backdrop from Ryan & Jett’s Palm Springs wedding.
This book backdrop may be one of the most popular backdrops we’ve ever made (Don’t lie you’ve totally pinned this already) from Ashley & Ian’s vintage wedding!

We always love working with Bri from Design Love Fest our latest DIY collab is super easy but impactful! If you haven’t noticed, here at JHD we LOVE gold and by love I mean we’re obsessed. So in this DIY we wanted to add just a touch of gold (and copper) to otherwise plain party balloons to create a custom party look that you can recreate for any occasion.
What you’ll need: Metallic Paint, Paint Brush, & Helium Filled Balloons. Then you loosely add paint strokes to the bottom of the balloons.
Then we tied the balloons to a chair to dry before we released them up to the ceiling.
And voila instant party! Check out more photos over at Design Love Fest

Holly & Ethan’s Bohemian Glamour Wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty! This gorgeous wedding at the Wind & Sea Estate in Big Sur took our breath away, and Mr. Haack’s photos capture all of the romance perfectly.
“We named the design inspiration for this “Boho Glam”. They are such a vibey couple and we wanted to bring in the laid back style of Big Sur while glamming it up with some sequins. We paired the two together as often as we could throughout the design: gold foil on the invites, foxtail garland over the dinner, sequins table cloths with crocheted lace doilies under the flowers, dream catcher guest book, rain sticks down the aisle of the ceremony topped with sequins trim and lace, yarn tassel and driftwood backdrop to the dessert table. LOVED it.” – Jesi
Happy Bride, Happy Designer.
