  • Let Them Eat Cake... Or Not!

  • Ahhh the wedding cake!  Much revered and much eaten over many centuries, the wedding cake has evolved from a mince meat pie in the seventeen hundreds to a multi-tiered extravaganza enjoyed exclusively by royalty. Today, brides and grooms everywhere have become royalty on their wedding day and many a[...]
  • Carly & Austin

  • Carly and Austins' wedding in Steamboat Springs was inspired by their love of Colorado with a touch of Alabama, their home state.  We used navy and white, with touches of green and pink and accented it all with a compliment of burlap.  We incorporated the navy linens with custom stamped burlap monog[...]
  • Sarah & Chris

  • Sometimes you just "click" right away with a client.  And so it was with Sarah.  From our very first meeting, I loved this bride.  She was fun and spunky with an inner beauty that shone bright.  Planning the details with Sarah was a joy.  Chris is her equal with the kindest and sweetest disposition [...]
  • Chair Envy

  • Sometimes, I feel like I'm trapped in the movie Groundhog Day every time I plan a wedding.  I think this is because, since my own wedding over twelve blissful years ago, I still cannot let go of a few details of my own 'main event' that I wish I could have changed.  Every time time I plan a wedding [...]
  • Summer Birthday Party - Sprinkle on the fun!

  • I always like to have  a theme for any party I am throwing or planning for a client.  My daughter's birthday falls during the summer season and I've planned everything from a  lawn picnic, a carnival theme with live fire jugglers, BBQ's, smore's parties and a Harry Potter themed party for her. Whew [...]
  • Stylish Bridesmaids Gifts

  • Now that your venue is set, you've chosen your vendors and shopped for your dress it's time to start thinking about all those girls that are helping you out along the way and (hopefully) treating you like a princess!  There are some great bridesmaids gifts out there, so here are a couple of ideas to[...]
  • A Most Unusual Guest Book Idea

  • I often get solicitations from a wide array of vendors offering products and services, but when I read the email from Bill Keys I was intrigued. (I wonder if that is his real name since he actually works with "keys.")  Bill provides a very unique style of wedding entertainment, which is also can be [...]
  • Pretty Papers

  • Once you've figured out your wedding budget, found your venue, made your design plan, and figured out your guest list it is time to focus on all of your printed materials including save the dates, invitations and other corresponding pieces; menus, programs, place cards, itineraries and thank you not[...]
  • Best Save the Date for a Bar Mitzvah

  • This is one of the cutest Bar Mitzvah Save the Dates I've ever seen! Sorry everyone - this video was removed from the internet.  It showed 13 year old Daniel from Atlanta doing a Bar Mitzvah rap as his "save the date" for his Bar Mitzvah.  It aired on the Today show and was posted on my space but[...]
  • Wedding Wars in Denver

  • Short of being selected to be a contestant on Survivor, the next best thing was to be selected to participate in Wedding Wars, a wedding design competition which was held on Friday, January 18, 2013 at 6:00pm at the City Hall Events Venue in Denver!  The Main Event was  one of four planners at this [...]
  • Menu printed on Napkin

  • When my daughter had her birthday party last fall I bought plain white linen napkins and  colored markers that would withstand the wash and let all the kids decorate the napkins.  I loved that the project was creative while creating a eco-friendly take home favor.  Today, on pintrest, I came across [...]
