Bridal Event

Here is a look at a Bridal Luncheon I organized this past summer. The colors of the wedding were Black, Red, Silver. 



 This was the "Treats" table. It had a very Dramatic Center Piece. I added the Damask Ribbon and gems to the arrangement. My favorite part of this was the cakes!!! They were so cute! I took the look I wanted to the bakery, Frills Cake Shop http://www.frillscakeshop.com/ and they did a perfect job of  making the look come to life! I added the flowers. I "flexed" some tulips. Basically you are bending the petals back. Makes a very pretty flower!!  

Here is a closer look at one of the cakes.
I LOVED this one!!!!  
A look at the table. I added ribbon to the base of the flower arrangements to add color to the table.
I used Hydrangeas and roses for the arrangement. There is also silver stems with jewels hanging from it. The runners I made. I had a hard time finding the pattern I wanted.... so when in doubt, SEW!  

We had flower balls made for the tree. I included small details like with the Bride Banner... made a nice keep sake of the day.

I do have more pictures that I will have to add! The event turned out great! I was super happy.

Holiday's+Deco Mesh= The PERFECT Decorations!

So here we are approaching the MOST  Wonderful Time Of the Year. I have already started playing my favorite crooners. Now I am ready to decorate! Here are some Holiday Wreaths I make for clients. They are so fun and very dramatic.




The ribbon used is Poly Deco Mesh. LOVE this stuff!!!!!  It's super cool to decorate with. You can use any type of wreath base... the green and red one I used a wire base. Then you start twisting and bunching, then secure with green pipe cleaners (that are cut into 3 inch pieces). I added all kinds of goodies that I found at Hobby Lobby. You will love these! It also looks great on any garland or as tree filler!! 
Here is what I did with my tree! I will be buying more and who knows what I'll come up with this time!

Happy Holiday's

Do It Yourself Scarfs

Ok... SO, I came across this tutorial on D.I.Y Scarfs and it is AWESOME! Thanks to my husband, I got right on this. I found a couple of old shirts I never see him wear and a tie I know he doesn't need (he has like 100) and TadA... everything I need to start the project.

Here's the proof!
I added my Memaw's Cameo on this... makes it that much more special!

This was an old Old Navy Polo Matt never wears.. and I broach of mine.

This is an old J Crew shirt and My broach
This might have been a shirt Matt still liked, but SHHH I really liked the color AND I know for a fact he hasn't worn it in 2 years (partly because he couldn't find it) lol OH well.. He forgave me.

So If I can do it, I KNOW you can do it!!!!
Here is the blog for the t-shirt scarfs
She has another one on here I haven't tried yet... its the spiral one! I know you will like it.

I found the Tie idea on Pinterest!

Give me PINTEREST!!!

Ok, Y'all..... I LOVE me some Pinterest. So glad my Xtra Mom sent me an invite. Thanks Lori. I have been on it for one week so far and I am loving it. Such a great way to bookmark your favorite blogs. Which brings me to this. You HAVE to check out this blog!!
http://www.the36thavenue.com/2011/09/fabric-wreath-tutorial.html


Learn to make this! I promise, I will be making this! In SEVERAL ways. REALLY excited!!!!  Notice the Paisley's?????

***UPDATE***
I told Y'all I was going to make one.. and I did!
I Really Love the Orange. I like the lighter orange in the one made in the other blog... but this worked great!

Instead of the Welcome I used V for Valdez.
I found the crow at the dollar store! The fabric I had to buy at Hobby Lobby. The orange fabric was 30% off today AND I got to use their web coupon, 40% off for the other yard! Not bad.

 
See, You can do it!


So, I wanted to add my Sweet, kind, and Oh so VERY talented Friend, Bethany's Wreath.

Introducing Bethany! (and her Sweet Baby girls)

Bethany is super creative. She amazes me at her projects which range from making beautiful baby bedding to Unbelievable Birthday Cakes for her girls.... (I will have to see if she will let me share a pic with you!)
So, she saw my blog and was inspired to make her very own wreath. SO I asked her if I could share it so you could see some variety and another point of view!

Here is her masterpiece!
SO cute!
We are both currently working on our second one. They are THAT easy and super fun to make!!! So many options! So many seasons!
