welcome baby – pink and gray baby shower decorations

Happy Monday folks! Today is my first day at my new job and I'm actually in route to Denver until Friday. I have a week of meetings which should keep me on my toes for my first week on the job. We had a blast at the wedding this weekend and I have few photos but as expected I had too much fun dancing and drinking with all of our friends. If you follow me on Facebook or on Instagram you may have seen a few sneak peaks. On Sunday, I finalized the pink and gray baby shower decorations I have … [Read more...]

wedding place cards – elegant and easy

Weddings! I love them but I am thankful I never had to get married again...fingers crossed that after 11 years together we are in the home stretch ;) One of my dear friends is getting married on Saturday here in South Florida. Planning a wedding is not fun but planing it from afar makes it worse. She panicked on me a few weeks ago and mentioned that she still didn't have wedding place cards. I calmed her down and promised to help her out since she has been in New York this entire time. We … [Read more...]

yellow and gray bridal shower -a sneak peek

First off, thank you so much for the support on the career changes going on around here. I really appreciate it. I'll be back to normal after a few more days of rest, wine and cuddles with my furry crew.

I was hired to take on a few decorations for bridal shower being hosted at a friend's house. What? I got … [Read more...]

a crafting challenge – crepe paper garland

A few weeks ago, a few bloggy friends decided to form a group to support and challenge each other. We thought it would be fun to do a regular post making a craft out of the same material just to see how we would each interpret the challenge. Our first material was crepe paper. When I think of crepe paper, my mind automatically goes to crepe paper streamers. What I wanted to try out was making a crepe paper garland. After all, isn't crepe paper the same as tissue paper? After a bit of research, I … [Read more...]

beer tasting party – a success

Happy Monday! We had a great weekend including helping out with a surprise beer tasting party at a friend's house. In all the the excitement and last minute prep, we forgot the camera so I apologize for the iPhone photos. We had a hard time getting the birthday boy ouf the house to set up so it called for some last minute running around. This is the bottle cap inspired cake that was made with some of the snacks in the background. I'm thankful I was not trusted to make the cake. I made the … [Read more...]

beer tasting party – ideas

I have a dear friend who has made me her party planner. She is very sneaky. She'll ask me for my opinion on something and gets me hooked on the idea. Before I know it, I'm making all sorts of things before I have even realized what is happening. Baby shower? Done. First birthday party for her son? Done. Wedding? I have a list of to-dos to last me until their November wedding date. And yes, they did things backwards. She even told the priest I was her wedding planner before telling me! She's … [Read more...]
