July is right in the heart of Wedding Season. It's a perfect month because you an count on beautiful flowers to be at their peak and the Summer Sun to show it's lovely face on your special day.

I feel extremely honored to have had the opportunity to work with the Allen Family and more specifically the lovely bride, Baylie, for her wedding day. Not only is this family picture perfect, but a kind, and giving group of people. They have an amazing group of friends who are just as sweet and giving. I feel like I really "lucked" out with this group.

Baylie knew exactly what she wanted for event and brainstorming and creating it was such fun. She had such a great team behind her to make this day go off with out a hitch.

Congrats to the lovely couple, #MrMrsSurjono

A Vintage Baby Shower

What fun we had planning a sweet baby shower for Baby Asher. The theme stayed "gender neutral" since mom and dad are saving that surprise for D-Day.
One thing was certain, we needed mint and vintage. Once you start down that road, the possibilities are endless. No, really..... we had a hard time narrowing down our favorite ideas.

Then, the rentals. 
Well, you must know this one thing. Here in the Mile High, we are just getting on the cutting edge of event rentals. Lucky for me, I found a special jewel on Facebook. Thank goodness for Social Media!

Once we sat down with the rental company, explored the whimsy possibilities, we were headed in the right direction. With a touch of special linens, paired with just the right flowers and sweet treats, we were ready to roll. 

I hope you enjoy this snap shot, picture journey, through today's event. I was too excited to wait for the professional photos, so those will soon follow!

Theme began with this cute guy. 
Used first as an invite, then we ordered more to use for the menu.

Valentine's Day-My Way

I love LOVE.... haha that sounds silly doesn't it? But, I do. My husband is sweet enough to indulge my sappy "love" shenanigans. If that means he has to sit through a sweet love story flick or help me with a silly V-Day craft, he will. Now that is L-O-V-E.

Well this Christmas season flew by, I started decorating the first week of November and started tear down last week... so I had no time to put up a tree. So I decided how fun would it be to enjoy another holiday and decorate for Valentines. So here is a look at my "Love" tree and how you can make your own!

What you need:

Tomato Cage
(that's your base)
Red and white
Lots and Lots...diff sizes. Reds, pink, black, printed, hearts, etc. etc.
Valentine Decor:
V-Day heart ornaments, garland, anything you like.

Where to start:
Attach your lights to the base and start wrapping.

I started with the white lights then finished with the red lights.

Then tie the ribbon and start wrapping.

Continue with all your ribbon.
I used about 15 spools of ribbon.
You can even staple the ribbon around a pole if that is easier.

Add your garland strands.

 Make the topper by wrapping some wire around them..

 Create clusters our of the ornaments..

Add your topper...

Embellish with love notes..

Then embellish your tree with pretties..

Make your dogs pose for photos...

And enjoy your adorable and sweet Valentines Creation :)
