{Real Wedding} Ashleigh & Andrew

I recently had the pleasure of working with Tanya Hendricks, owner of Southern Charm Events on a couple of weddings... each equally fantastic. Tanya does an amazing job putting a wedding together and makes any size budget look like a high end affair.

The first project I worked on with Tanya was for a beautiful couple, Ashleigh & Andrew. Their colors were dark pink & black infused into a damask theme.

For the lovely couple, I created a dance floor monogram decal, several monograms for glass blocks which Tanya lit up (beautiful), a monogram frame to greet guests, an aisle runner and a monogram vase for the sign in table.

The monogram vase was used to hold wine corks that the guests signed as they entered the affair. What a neat concept!

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Inspiration Board: Pink & Green Birthday

With my daughter's first birthday in just 3 months, I though it would be a good time to start planning. I love handmade treasures and was able to build this collection of mostly all handmade & mommy made goodies.

The monogram in the center was designed by me & would be used on her invitations, thank you cards & of coarse it will be made into a decal for the front door & other various locations throughout the event.

(Shown clockwise from the top left corner)

The banner is simply adorable. I found it on colshelly's Etsy page. She has very unique party items.

My husband and I love to serve good eats on a skewer. Food on a stick = smiling faces. Orange1 has these great cocktail skewers with beautiful beaded tips.

My daughter hasn't had any custom clothes made for her yet, and I think her birthday is a great occassion to have a shirt made for her. Modernfrills has cute birthday shirts and much more.

One of my favorite types of favors to send guests home with are sweet treats. Accent the Party must share my sweet favor passion. They offer these yummy custom gum wrappers & personalize for FREE.

I have been in love with these beautiful maryjane baby shoes made by GraciousMay since before my daughter was born. I just love the color, pattern & the flower is the perfect topper.

Who doesn't love cupcakes. If you know my personally, you know I do. And what's better than a cupcake? A faux cupcake you can keep forever. I found these awesome faux cupcakes on LaDeeDah's Etsy shop. (**In cupcake love**)

on Etsy knows parties. She creates some of the cutest party hats & bloomers I have ever seen. I cannot wait to see my little girl in her 1st birthday hat.

As I mentioned, I love cupcakes... and I love the cupcake toppers PamperYourParty has created. Not only are they the perfect cupcake topper for this event, they also have a coordinating invitation which is very nice.

We cannot forget about room decor... thank goodness PartyPoms has not forgotten. Her blossoms are so delightful and can hang in any area of the party.

So what do you think of this collection? Do you create handmade goodies or know of any that would fit into this collection? I would love to see them so please leave a link below.
