DIY Country Bridal Shower

Country Bridal Shower

You must be wondering “how did you come up with the creative idea of an elegant-styled country bridal shower?” Well as you know by now, I have a hankering for DIY projects and event decor, so I was super excited when I received this lovely linen from Linen Tablecloth and was told I could have my way with it!

Linen Tablecloth

Linen Tablecloth’s – Spring Harvest Tablecloth

I loved the pattern and lace trim of this quality linen, which definitely had an orchard or barn-like country flair, so I decided to create an elegant country bridal shower DIY tablescape using this lovely patterned linen as the base and as inspiration for the decor. My goal was to develop a unique tablescape that could be utilized in both indoor and outdoor settings with a down-home country and elegant rustic feel to it. In order to compliment the gorgeous linen, I went with a navy blue and white color palette infused with gold accents (chargers, candlestick holders, glitter, paint, ribbon and sequins) and tan elements (wood, burlap, and twine). What’s amazing about this elegant country theme is that it would be perfect for a Spring, Summer, or Fall bridal shower, wedding, or baby shower (changing a few elements)! In the end it all came together beautifully, just as I had pictured in my head, and Natalie Henderson did an amazing job capturing all of the minute lovely details that went into this DIY Country Bridal Shower!

Victorian Wedding Inspiration Photo Shoot

Beautiful Victorian Wedding Inspirational Shoot

Victorian Wedding – what a creative concept for a 21st century wedding! In history, the Victorian period marked a “long period of peace, prosperity, refined sensibilities and national self-confidence for Britain”. (Source: Wikipedia) When I think Victorian a few words come to mind: classic, elegant, refined, high tea & lovely china, big fancy dresses with corsets, curly hair and interesting hats and accessories. What comes to mind when you think of the Victorian period?

I have always been intrigued by history and the various eras, way of life, fashion, art, religion, culture, etc that existed before my life began. It is common for people to find inspiration in history (fashion, art, culture, etc) and either replicate, creatively build upon, or re-engineer to suit modern taste and style. When it comes to weddings, we are seeing less “traditional” weddings and more creative and personalized weddings that match the style and personality of the bride and groom. Recent popular wedding style choices have been whimsical, rustic, modern,vintage, outdoor, beach, etc. So when the opportunity came my way to share and inspirational shoot for Victorian-styled wedding, I was all in!

Today I am excited to share a lovely Victorian wedding inspirational photo shoot beautifully put together by a creative and talented group of wedding professionals. Let me give you a few details of the photo shoot:

What inspired this Victorian wedding photo shoot? This photo shoot was inspired by a china plate from Plate Vintage Rentals. The color coordination of the plate was amazing and immediately gave us the idea of creating a Victorian inspired photo shoot. From the lace fabrics to the custom designed invitation suite and Victorian details this shoot was full of ideas and lots of attention to details.

The venue looks amazing, where did this photo shoot take place? This photo shoot took place at the amazingly beautiful Grove Redfield Estate in Glenview Illinois. The bright colors and beautiful fireplace gave this Victorian photo shoot a cozy and romantic feel.

Wedding Invitations for Every Season

Weddings & the Four Seasons of LOVE

Have you missed me? Enjoying summer? Summer is my favorite season of the year and although I’ve missed you guys, I have been having a blast and can’t believe we are half-way through summer! What is your favorite season of the year – Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter?

Today, I am so excited to share with you some awesome custom designed wedding invitations & save-the-dates for every season from a lovely Etsy duo named Behold Designz! Behold Designz is very unique in that they tailor their work and designs based upon the bride’s wedding color palette and floral arrangement – how awesome is that! With feedback from the bride, they truly do a wonderful job capturing the unique elements, color palette, and style of each of their brides – all for an budget-friendly price and within a reasonable timeframe (only 6 weeks)!

If you are a visual person like me, you are probably dying to see what these creative and beautifully colorful invitations look like so I won’t make you wait any longer. :) Here is an adorable collection for the four seasons that Behold Designz created just for me to share with my readers – you are going to love this!

 

Fall Wedding Save-the-Date

I have to say that this one is my favorite, I just LOVE the fall colors and the antlers! Being a nature girl that loves the natural elements, I am loving the earthy, rustic/whimsical feel with these save-the-dates and matching wedding invitation.

I don’t know about you but I am loving these wedding invitations and save-the-dates that beautifully represents the four seasons of love! From the invitations above do you see how Behold Designz was able to utilize one design and tranform each invitation into something unique and creative by simply using different color palettes? The color combinations uniquely changes the entire look of the design, which allows a bride to essentially have their own one-of-a-kind wedding invitation! Again, this is one of the awesome things about working with Behold Designz – you get to be an integral part of the process, customizing your wedding invitation suite to match your color palette and floral selections, and having a finished product that you’ll LOVE sharing with your friends and family!

If you loved this eye-candy, please make sure you stop by Behold Designz Etsy shop and check out some of their other lovely floral wedding invitation designs or contact them for a beautiful custom wedding invitation design!

Who is the Blogger behind 3D-Memoirs?

The Face Behind the Blogging Mask

I am assuming that most of you have not read the ABOUT ME section of the blog, so I thought I’d spend a little time today sharing a little bit about ME.

Today I am going to be completely transparent with you and let you in on a little secret – so let’s get down to details.

Who Am I?

My name is Elvira DeCuir and I live in Orange County, CA (USA). I am a 33 year old wife to a wonderful husband and mom to a handsome and busy 2 year old son. My hubby and I will be celebrating 5 years of marriage in August and looking to hopefully celebrate somewhere tropical as we are thinking that it may be a good time after summer to start on baby #2, so an anniversary in paradise would be perfect! We are considering the Caribbean, Hawaii (our honeymoon destination) or Bora Bora – trying to figure out which one will be most cost effective – if you have any ideas or suggestions or even hookups, please do share! I am looking for white sandy beaches, sunshine, beautiful blue water, and a tropical cocktail – this to me embodies relaxation, paradise, and romance.

paradise

 

As you know I LOVE DIY projects, event decor, arts & crafts, party planning and weddings. Besides these things I also love karaoke, dancing, singing, writing poetry, reading (mainly murder mystery novels – I think I am a detective), pictures, movies, scrapbooking, wine tasting, cooking, traveling, exploring nature, outdoor activities (camping, swimming, fishing, hiking, boating, sports, etc), adventures, spending time with friends and family, shopping, and saving money! I love to wear jeans and cute flip flops, have  an addiction to buying shoes, love to wear fuchsia nail polish on my toes, and love to dress up my eyes when I go out. I am a sucker for milk and white chocolate candy (especially Sees Candy), chocolate chip cookies, pizza, burgers, soft warm bread and blueberry muffins, and potatoes (any way I can get them – fried, baked, mashed, french fries, tater tots, hash browns, etc). I am an Aquarius (on the cusp), a compulsive buyer, type A personality, creative, strong-willed, a little bit of a control freak, and love to laugh! I am detailed-oriented, analytical, and a great debater – my hubby always tells me I should have been a lawyer. I am inquisitive and like to know the why behind why. I am very sentimental so it is hard for me to let go of things and I am a hopeless romantic at heart. I am 6ft 1.5in and I wear heels – I am used to being stared at and wished I could have been a model in my youth. (My hubby is 6ft 4in and our son is 39 in, in the 95 percentile for height – I am sure he will be tall. :)) I could go on and on about myself, my likes and dislikes, or quirky behaviors but I won’t bore you with the details, however if you have any questions feel free to ask!

 

My Family

My Family

Family Collage

 

Snapshot of My Background

I have a large immediate family with 5 siblings, 10 nieces & nephews, and 5 great nieces & nephews – so I love holidays and the chaos, laughs, and fun that comes with large family get-to-gethers. I played basketball in H.S. but was also a bit of a cool nerd, as I like to say, in high school and graduated Valedictorian with a 4.2 GPA. I graduated Cum Laude from California State University, Long Beach with a B.S. in Marketing & Management with a minor in Communication Studies, plus many academic accolades, and recognition and awards for leadership and my collegiate involvement. I spent 5 years in the mortgage financing industry, working for major banks – so I have a strong background in B2B sales.

 

My Workload

Fast forward to present day and my little secret – besides writing for this blog and doing wedding/event planning, I actually have a full-time job with a large telecommunications company, supporting our wireless government customers across the US. I love my job because its put a roof over our heads, provides health benefits, and the flexibility to work remotely (stay-at-home mom + working mom = double workload), plus I enjoy what I do. Whew! So now you know, that I am an extremely busy lady – work, blog & social media, wedding/event planning, mom, wife, household responsibilities (cooking, cleaning, paying the bills, etc) – but somehow I’ve managed to keep my sanity and my workload. I am a 1 woman team with no hired help or the ability to spend all day working on posts and new content, so please bear with me if I miss a day or two or I am slower in implementing new things to the blog. I am sure many of you can relate to being busy and managing many things at once and as a mom and wife, sometimes I struggle with prioritizing everything, especially balancing career, what I love, and my family. I can’t take credit for mastering it but I think I’ve done a great job thus far. How does that saying go, “You do what you have to do, so you can do what you want to do”.

Did Someone Say Summer Vacation?

I absolutely LOVE the blog and hearing from all of my lovely readers, but in case you didnt know, it is very time-consuming. On top of that, I recently finished a wedding, just last weekend, that I had been working on for the past year and it was absolutely beautiful –  I can’t wait until I get my hands on the lovely pictures so that I can share with you guys. With everything that has been going on, plus our recent move, I am feeling a little burned out and have decided to take a little vacation this summer to re-energize. You may be wondering what this means for 3D-Memoirs?

  • Well, I’ll be taking a couple weeks off from blogging to spend some quality time with my son and hubby.
  • Then I’ll be working on some tablescape and DIY photoshoots that I can share with you guys on the blog – I have some wonderful ideas and will need to spend some time putting it all together.
  • Plan on seeing a fun fundraising post this summer to help Operation Shower collect some much needed supplies for their military baby showers this year – super excited about this plus you will have the chance to win some amazing goodies from some awesome vendors for participating!
  • Also, I am excited to share that I am working on adding a shop to the blog – more details to come soon, but know that it is going to be wonderful!
  • With all these exciting happenings + vacation here and there this summer, you’ll probably see less posts on Tuesday (Inspiration Board Tuesday), Thursday (Etsy Thursday), & Friday (DIY Fridays) over the next couple months, but I’ll definitely keep you posted and make sure I announce new posts on the blog!
  • In the meantime, I want to invite you to look around the blog because I am sure that there are LOTS of posts that you may have missed. I recommend browsing each of the headings above (Etsy Thursdays, DIY, Inspiration Boards, Wedding Inspiration, My DIY Decor Portfolio, etc) or if you have something particular in mind – put it in the search box (top right hand side).
  • Also, please make sure you are following me on Facebookwww.facebook.com/3dmemoirs , Twitterwww.twitter.com/3dmemoirs, and Pinterestwww.pinterest.com/3dmemoirs, so that you don’t miss any of the goodies I share. It would also be a great idea for you to peruse my boards on Pinterest for ideas and inspiration – I’ve got tons of lovely things on my boards!

So, please note that this by no means is a goodbye, just a partial summer vacation break where I will be working on some awesome things for you and the blog, as well as you can expect to still see some of the wonderful content that you love so much, it just may not be weekly until closer to the end of summer, but please stay tuned!

Memorial Day

I would like to wish you all a wonderful 3 day weekend! I would also like to say a big THANK YOU to all military men and woman that have given or risked their lives for our country, our beliefs, and our freedom – it is your ultimate sacrifice that has granted me the liberties that I have today. Thank you to not only those that have given their lives, but also veterans, active military men and woman and their families – you deserve recognition year-round and I want you to know that I appreciate everything that you do and thank you for your courage, strength, dedication, and service!

Etsy Thursday: The Great Gatsby Wedding

The Great Gatsby Inspired Wedding

This week’s Etsy Thursday post is full of beautiful inspiration for a 1920’s, art deco, vintage, Great Gatsby styled wedding. I may be a little late in sharing inspiration for The Great Gatsby since there has been a signifcant buzz in the media for some time, however the timing is perfect for me personally because I just saw the movie over the weekend! I LOVED it and on a side note I thought Leonardo DiCaprio looked amazing – in my opinion he hasn’t looked this hot since his starring role in the Titanic! I recall being a huge fan of the book in high school and I probably should have read it again before seeing the movie, but that didn’t stop me from loving the acting, imagery, wardrobe/styling, storyline, whimsical nature, and the wonderful flashback to the popular 20’s – I am a fan! If you haven’t seen the movie yet – go and see it! If you have seen it, what did you think?

I can’t believe how many lovely pages of Etsy wedding finds are available to search through, so many that I had to just pick a few of my favorites from the first 15 pages (I wasn’t even able to get through all the pages). The Great Gatsby inspirational wedding finds below really reminded me of the images that I saw in the movie. I really hope you enjoy this week’s Etsy Thursday post!

Vintage Carnival Theme Inspiration Board

Vintage Carnival Theme: Perfect for a Baby Shower or Birthday Party

(Did you guys miss me? Thanks so much for being patient as I spent last week moving – things were way too hectic for me, but I’m back!)

As a kid an even as an adult, I just LOVE the carnival! I think it is an adorably creative idea to do a vintage carnival theme for either a baby shower or birthday party! You could really go all out with the decor, games, and menu for this theme – adding all your childhood carnival favorites to the celebration! Pinwheels, prize ribbons, popcorn, cotton candy, bean bag toss, apple bobbing, big tops, elephants, balloons, tickets, and so much more would just make this party F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! You can choose a pastel color palette or the traditional red and white stripes with kraft brown colored elements. In addition, if the party is for a girl you can do different pink hues or for a boy you can use different blue hues – sky’s the limit in pulling off this adorable vintage carnival theme.

I actually did a DIY vintage carnival party for my nieces birthday party a couple years ago – check out the inspirational photos! (See more photos in my FB album.) Everyone had a blast and it was so much fun orchestrating the party and seeing it come together! Here is some more vintage carnival inspiration that I think you’ll love!

Etsy Thursday: Rainbow Wedding

Rainbow Etsy Wedding Inspiration

It is no surprise that rainbows are a favorite for kids. Even as an adult I still love rainbows, especially when I see them in the sky! Summer is around the corner and I can’t help but notice the increase of popularity for rainbow themed birthday parties. So, I thought that it would be lovely to share an Etsy inspired rainbow wedding for this week’s Etsy Thursday. Are you ready for some awesomeness? I think you’ll love these vibrant and colorful Etsy wedding finds, plus the great thing about this color palette is that you can pair it with shapes, such as chevron, polka dots, and stripes.

Elephant Baby Shower

Elephant Baby Shower Inspiration Board

For this week’s Inspiration Board Tuesday I decided to put together an inspiration board for a lovely elephant baby shower! I love the use of elephants as a focal piece for a baby shower because they are super cute and not overused – they can be made to look cute and cuddly in various colors and patterns as you’ll see below. The awesome thing too is that this theme can be used for a boy or a girl!

When it comes to selecting a color palette it is most common to go with pink (for girls) and blue (for boys), but with summer around the corner I thought it would be creatively thinking outside the box plus more fun to go with a vibrant blue and orange color palette for this elephant baby shower.

As you can see from the inspiration board the decor can be simple yet beautiful. Buy or make some sort of banner or garland to hang, use simple centerpieces such as flowers/plants, bring out the color palette with the linen and paper products, tie in the theme with the cake and favors, and line up some fun games! It’s always nice to add some decor elements such as elephants in a picture frame or elephant cutouts on the table to add to the overall theme.

Some other creative color palette options for this elephant baby shower theme would be gray and blue, charcoal gray and white, yellow and gray, light green and turquoise blue, fuchsia and pink, yellow and pink, green and white, green and charcoal gray, red and turquoise blue, black and white with gold accents, and purple and gray.
