This wedding was so stunning with all the bright colors.  I have so much fun designing with different brides and seeing how different the color schemes are.  This bride was married in Wilmington, NC near the cost.  She went with cobalt blue dresses for her bridesmaids with complimentary fun orange accents.   The color scheme turned out great and the flower design around the cobalt dresses turned out to be so fun. Take a peek for yourself....

As shared before, the bride wanted a clean, simple classic bouquet.
Bridesmaid Bouquets had an array of parrot tulips, hypericum berries, alstromeria,and rannunculus.

Instead of a traditional ring bearer pillow, the bride was creative and used a toy truck for her cute little nephew! A blue hydrangea was placed in the back of the truck for him to carry down the aisle.

Fall Birthday Planning

Our little baby is almost one and I have had lots of planning to do.  Here are few things in progress.

1- B-day Banner is made. Except for hanging the pennants on ribbon.  We found some nice chocolate brown and orange and white polka dot paper from Michaels and scored some brown and orange plates from the $1 section at Target.

2-  The 1 circles are made for the cupcakes
This fabric down below that the # 1 circles are sitting on happen to be the fabric for the sleeves of Madelyn's dress.

3. Cupcake Liners are bought.  I originally thought about getting polka dot cupcake liners but changed my mind since the circles would have polka dots too.  Plus, I am hoping to dress up the cupcake stand with leftover trim from the party hat.  Speaking of trim... check out the super clearance trim Michaels for $1. Here are some damask chocolate brown liners we found at Michaels as well.  Gotta love that place.

4. Birthday Hat Trimmings which look like they were hand made to match her dress!  What a find.  We snagged up some yellow and orange pom pom fringe.  Some Ric Rac Orange Ribbon, some fun yellow ribbon that looks like a ruffle almost and some brown sequins.

Here is a close up of the trim...

My mom actually gave me this cute little bud vases for my Birthday few backs and thought they could some how be used at the party.

So, there you have it. Lots left to do but the stages of planning are on there way.
