Brown County Bridal Tour {March 9th, 2014}

    This was our first year participating in the Brown County Bridal Tour and is was super fun! I tried to create a fresh, spring like look at our tables with a little whimsey to go along with it. Most of the decor is in my inventory for my brides to use at no extra cost! Hope you enjoy and get some inspiration for you next spring event!                       […]

{Peppermint Meringues}

I  absolutely love the industry that I am in for many reasons and one of them is because the holidays last a REALLY long time! They are my favorite.  All of them :)  So to kick off the holiday season {this November}, I had the pleasure of styling a mini-photo session for Lynette Weber Photography in Bloomington, Indiana. Lot’s of cute little ones came to the shoot and I can’t wait to share her beautiful photos with you! In the […]

Athena’s 1st Birthday!

Weeeellllll! My baby niece turned 1 last weekend! Such an amazing age. You really see them turning into little people…with personalities…and the capability to think about stuff….and they’re really mobile {though be it they seem drunk all the time, so my husband says…which is true, and amusing}. Any who, my sis is amazing at so many things DIY, and who knows where that came from?! Maybe if I pop out a child, I’ll be extra DIY and crafty too! Or […]

Bloomington Bridal Show {2013}

Last weekend was the annual Bloomington Bridal show, and it was pretty awesome! I love getting an 8×10 blank space that I can do whatever I want with :) Finding the inspiration, hunting down the inventory, and putting it all together, is so fun! Here’s a peak of what this years booth was all about…. It began with {beautiful succulents} and a very beautiful gold sequence table cover… and {beautiful accents} and {Fresh Peaches} Some {Sweet Treats} The {Credentials} on […]

The Best {Mail Retrieval Ever}

I can’t believe Christmas is over, but what makes it OK this year is that I woke up to about a foot of snow everywhere! It’s so beautiful! Yes, I am one of ‘those people’ who love, love, love the winter season, the cold, the snow, the hot cocoa! As you may have remembered in a previous post, I also love paper. Printed paper, folded paper, letter pressed paper, personalized paper, you name it. So this year when I got […]

{Invitation: Happiness}

I absolutely love, love wedding invitations! Whenever I get one in the mail from a bride, I savor it on my countertop for at least a couple hours, just glancing at it once in awhile. Then, when I can’t stand it anymore, I grab the thick {always extra postage needed} envelope and carefully open it as not to damage its contents. When I get to the RSVP envelope, I actually say out loud, to myself usually, “Duh, I’m totally going […]

Summer {Birthday}

Ah…summer birthdays. I imagine that they are the best. It’s warm, it’s sunny, you’re not in school and you get to see all your friends! But alas, that was my sisters life :) I do remember a pony ride at one of her July birthday celebrations…I, in March, never got a pony, we were all just lucky to have electricity, or not get hit by lightening, or pelted with quarter sized hail. There is the good chance of an awesome […]

{Sock Monkeys} are Timeless…

One would think that I am super sad that the Holiday season is officially over {according to the government, that was at 12am on Tuesday} Any who, I sadly waved goodbye to my pregnant sister and her Greek {and cute} husband as they ventured back to Iowa today where they live {she works for the government ;} and was super sad {so were the doggies} Then I thought… sock monkeys. Normal reaction to sadness, right? However, Sock Monkey SLIPPERS are […]
