Pretty Weddings....

 Beautiful Fort Worth Wedding by Splurge! Events....Love the blue  
 Amazing save the dates, invites and programs by Lola Lorena Social Supply

 Lighting made a huge impact on this event - We hazed the room during the seated dinner and created movement on the dance floor to get everyone out of their seats!

Congratulations to a beautiful Bride and Groom!

Happy Friday! Table Top Treats......

 Fort Worth Bridal Gala Table 
 Handmade Paper Pinwheels and fresh cabbage dyed bright yellow!
 Scrabble letters glued on slats from an old porch swing as 
place cards
 Add a touch of mercury glass (votives in background) and you will add a touch of glam to any tablescape!

 Vintage cake topper and old books 
 Snow berries, baby's breath and a touch of wheat - all fresh but has a weathered look when 
paired together

 My two lovely assistants for the day!
 Me and my girl!
 I heart old fashioned striped paper straws!

Just a Pile of Pretties!

What does one do when one needs to show pictures to a potential client in an organized, creative way? Books are too heavy and bulky to carry to an appointment. So, I came up with these little pocket folders that hold pictures from past events and creations. I dug around my junk pile for little treasures to make these folders beautiful and inspirational. My hope is that a client might be inspired from top to bottom and inside out!
 It's all about presentation!

 A pocket folder wrapped with a phone book page, old millenary flowers and netting and some vintage buttons....
 A fabulous wedding held on the 26th of June with colors of champagne and pink inspired this portfolio pocket.........
 An old dress maker pattern layered with scalloped paper and tied with bakers twine.....
 Letters from an old board game fit together and tie with vintage ric rac.....
                      CREATE - that really says it all, now doesn't it.
 This pocket folder used to hold war ration stamps - now repurposed to holds pictures of a glamorous affair!
 More war ration booklets tied up with silk trim....tucked inside are pictures of my creations I have at home or have been "commissioned" to do.

Just a pile of pretties!
It makes me happy to see all these fun things...
Life should be beautiful.
