Celebrate in Style

If you’re getting ready for a major celebration then may I suggest you have the ‘it’ party decor, a Frilloon!  It’s everything, glamorous, sweet, perfect, stunning and oh so fancy.  The way it floats is so romantic with the long eye catching tassel making it fun to hold or stand on its own.

Frilloons can be used just about anywhere and add so much fun to any event as they are customizable~ any color combo you can think of or all in one color makes a great statement!  Imagine an all red Frilloon for a valentine’s celebration.

I used one this New Years Eve and I’d have to say it was so eye catching because you don’t normally see such a big balloon, but add the amazing tassels and it become beautiful and so impressive.

Frilloons are by a Minneapolis company called, ‘White Peacock Styled Events’.  The balloons can be shipped and will add wonder and style to your next event.

Vintage Wedding Boys

My boys were ring barrier’s in their brother’s beautiful wedding on September 7.  The bride and groom wanted a vintage wedding vibe, so not only was the decor vintage but the wedding party wore suspenders and caps.

I had my boys hats, ties and suspenders handmade from Etsy.

Their outfits fit right in & they LOVED being part of their brothers’ wedding!

I know I’m a little bias but how cute are these boys?  I think their outfits worked really well.  The only thing I may have done differently is to make their ties a tad darker…I love to know what do you think?

The Perfect Wedding Gift

I enjoy doing anything creative, so naturally I love to wrap gifts, but mostly love giving them and try to create a unique gift if possible.  There is nothing like getting a gift that is so perfect for you and you love everything about it, from the way it was presented to you, to the packing, and of course the gift!

I bought a large frame from Crate & Barrel that had a custom mat where several size photos could go.  I made sure that the frame would be a good fit for the couples home style.  I took their wedding invitation and copied a couple of times so that I could create some custom cards using their invitation, quotes, monograms and their names.

The couples’ invitation.

I made their monogram on my computer and added my favorite quote, “And they lived happily ever after”!  I used  turquoise card stock to add another blue to the frame.

I cut their invitation anchor and added it with their names to tie the entire look together.  It is these details that make this gift look professional and very special.

I went to the store to shop for something else to add to their frame and ended up picking this blue water heart card out!  Love!

It just needed a little of Holly & Seth!

Here are some of the custom cards I created.  All with blue fonts.

I took the boarder of their invitation and cut it to fit perfectly around their ‘established’ card.

The final gift has plenty of space for wedding memories and photos.  I love that I started their memory frame, but they get to add their own touches to complete it perfectly for them!

I never give a gift in a bag, and with the scale of this gift I had no other choice but to use paper.

I love white and only white for a wedding.  This is handmade paper that was made through fair trade practices.

I used a strip of burlap fabric for an earthy looking bow.  I love contrasting everything- soft and rough.

To add their ‘blue’ wedding color I tied in a blue ribbon and monogram on their card.  To keep with the beach feeling, I placed an ornamental starfish.

The couple recently moved to the coastal area, so I liked the idea of also giving them a fresh set of Ralph Lauren beach towels.  I used a stripped paper, but kept things similar with the bows and starfish.  To combine the two gifts I added an extra layer of the fair trade floral paper to this gift.

You can’t go overboard with a newlywed couple and monograms!

And they lived happily ever after and I am happily gifting!
