work in progress ~ flower wedding place cards

This fabulous work in progress is for a bride who will be getting married in a couple of weeks.  These are flower place cards that will be added to each wedding table place setting.  These can be dyed to coordinate with your event or left natural (cream) like the pretty little flowers above.  You can find them here at Company 42.

new item ~ wooden number escort cards

These are our new wooden number escort cards. They have a beautiful Baltic Birch wooden number attached to each card.  These cards have been given a vintage feel by using different patterned card stock that has been stitched with thread.  You can find these at our Etsy store: Company 42.

is this seat taken?

Wedding chair decor options are pretty much endless. Paper and ribbon for reserved tags or cute quotes are a great yet simple way to accent your chairs. But if simple is just not your thing then you can deck out your chairs with vintage jar vases and flowers like the chairs shown above.  Of course the ever popular "Mr." and "Mrs." signs are great too.  If the more expensive chair options like chiavari are not in your price range then spicing up less expensive chairs with embellishments such as flowers or even paper garland would be a more affordable option.

out of town

Out of town on vacation visiting family in Texas.  I will be back on Tuesday.  Going to the state fair today.  Can't wait to try some "deep fried anything"!

UPDATE: Tried the Fletchers famous corn dog, a fried Oreo, and a fried PB&J sandwich. YUM! They had a fried butter stick but that was going a little far even for me.

work in progress - franco

These are favor bags I am working on for a customer.  These cute bags are for a baby shower. Little zoo animals and a personalized name tag are too cute!  These bags are just a little bit bigger so they can accommodate larger favor items.

I love these ''wedding photo op'' pictures.  From funny to beautiful these photos are just amazing.

something different ~ molly jean!

So I think each week I am going to try to post about a topic unrelated to weddings just to switch it up a bit.   I guess I will write about whatever pops into my head and right now something cute and cuddly is on my mind.  I would like to introduce you to my baby...Molly Jean.  She is my "evil" little dog. Although my sweet angel has a mean streak (she's 9 years old and cranky-we call her our "little old lady"), she is always making us laugh and she loves her mom and dad.  So here are a couple of pics for you to ohhh and ahhh over.

where have you been all my life?

It is a bummer that wonderful wedding websites were not around in January 2008 when I was getting married.  I am a Style Me Pretty and Pinterest addict and all I can think is how lucky brides are today to have these great tools.  SMP launched in February of 2007 but I had no idea it was around and it had not hit its stride yet. Same goes for Etsy. I did not find the Etsy marketplace until 2009.  The other great sites shown above (Wedding Chicks and Oh Lovely Day) either weren't on my radar or hadn't been launched yet.  I am sure it is only a matter of time before some new and amazing site comes along and again makes me turn a little greener. Envy is not a pretty color on me!  If you know of any great wedding websites list them here.  I am always looking for new inspiration.

Happy Planning,

trick or treat

I love Halloween and it has been my favorite holiday since I found out Santa wasn't real.  What a sad depressing day...but I digress. I love Halloween because it is scary and spooky. But the candy, now that it reason enough to love the holiday!  Over the years I have seen photos of some amazing Halloween weddings. I would have loved to do this on my big day but I didn't have the nerve.  So living vicariously through the photos above, I have complied some of my favorite Halloween designs.  I am looking forward to adding more amazing photos once "Halloween 2012" has come and gone.

Happy Planning!

Ok so I promised you another look at my line of favor bags and here are a couple more.  These are great for baby showers.  There are metallic green, blue and brown animals for baby boys and glittered pink, yellow and purple pastel animals for the baby girls. These bags are made out of high quality thick muslin and all the favor tags are made by hand.  You can find them here at the Company Forty Two store.

Happy Planning,

lovely aisle's

Options are limitless when it comes to aisle decor.  It is amazing how a simple space can be turned into something magical and romantic.   I complied several photos of aisle decor that I love.  I am also a fan of ceremony chair decor.  Flowers, candles and fabric sash's are all great ideas to add flair to an aisle way.  This is something I did not do for my wedding and I could kick myself for it!
