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’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!

Garden Party Kid’s Birthday

Garden Party Birthday for Kid’s

Planning a kid’s birthday party? Let them have fun in the dirt while teaching them about plants and flowers – let them connect with their “green thumb”. Can you tell that I enjoy and appreciate Spring and all that it has to offer? I think that this is a very creative and fun birthday party theme. For fun, why not let the kid’s plant seeds or a potted plant in your yard; show them some of the good and bad garden bugs, pass out planting pot favors filled with a shovel, seeds, gardening gloves, and other goodies; show them various flowers or fruits and vegetables in your garden – explaining the process from seed to growth and how to care for them; let them paint flowering pots for fun; and develop a light menu full of healthy and creative bites like the samples you see below!

40th Anniversary Party

I hope you are ready for some eye-candy today! I couldn’t wait to share pictures with you from a recent surprise 40th Anniversary Party that I had the privilege of creating the decor for. The event was held on the lovely patio of a local restaurant and the colors for the event were red, black, and white. With it being such an intimate evening celebration, I decided to set the appropriate mood with a romantic feel and beautiful yet simplistic decor that encompassed the event’s colors.

 

(My decor elements pictured above included the rose centerpieces, rose cluster and baby’s breath square vases, votive candles, rose petals, and decor for the guests of honor’s table and cake table.)

The delicious cake provided by Hansen’s bakery was enjoyed by the guests. As a favor each guest received a white chocolate sucker in a two-heart mold with a LOVE ribbon, and each family received a magnet with a wedding picture of the couple.

Working with this perfectly fitting modest venue space, it was important to added a proportional amount of decor to really enhance the intimate character of this celebratory event without overdoing it. The ambiance was beautiful during the daylight and very romantic in the evening. I am happy to report that I received an appreciable amount of positive feedback on the decor elements from not only the guests (comprised of close family and friends) but also from the guests of honor.  It is always wonderful to receive positive feedback on my work but at the end of the day, I do what I do because I enjoy it and I LOVE to see the smiles on my clients and their guest’s face= priceless.

 

This surprise 40th Anniversary party was given by the honoree’s oldest children (Sylvia, Ericka, & Aaron (not pictured)). Here is a great picture of my happy clients!

 

Love the smiles on the honoree’s faces! They were pleasantly surprised, overjoyed, and had a great time. What an amazing occasion to celebrate–40 years of marriage! Wishing them many more blessed years together!
