I've Been Featured!: A Derby Theme Party

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

The fabulous Amanda Richardson of When and Where Invites was so kind to share some photos of this winning birthday party she put together, Kentucky Derby style.  This theme is full of kid-friendly, horse-loving fun!  There's my cake topper in red and royal blue; I'm thrilled to be a part of it :) 

Go check out her blog post (and her shop) for more great ideas.  Thanks Amanda!

Treasury Time: An Artist's Wedding

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Watercolor hues and painterly brush strokes add an air of creativity to this artist-inspired wedding.  Look for watercolor washes and playful paint splatters on invitations, escort cards, table linens, and even your wedding dress (like this dreamy ombre-washed wedding gown by Ouma).  Take a look at the hand-painted watercolor blooms sugar cookies by Sweet Little Morsels too.  For flowers, I think loose arrangements that include peonies and ranunculus in shades of pink and peach would look amazing here.  Wouldn't this theme be so romantic for a couple whose first date was at an art museum?

New Items: African Hoops and Cupcake Toppers

Sunday, April 21, 2013

My grandmother is visiting from South Africa, and she brought me some fantastic new fabrics in bright neons, stripes, and African prints.  Here they are in a new hoop set, to add a fun pop of color to any room.  I ended up giving them to my cousin as a gift on her recent visit, as she really loved them, so they are no longer available in my shop.

I've also turned the fabric into cupcake toppers, which I happen to think are the coolest things ever :)  They would be amazing at an outdoor summer celebration or barbecue (or braii, if you're South African).  Check out more ideas for an African-inspired party in my previous post here.

Treasury Time: Love Birds

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

It's spring, and a bird-themed wedding is such a sweet way to celebrate all the love that's in the air.  Included in this collection for love birds are little nests for place holders, mini bird cupcake toppers, and a tree stump cake stand made from natural wood.  Feathers show up as part of a bridal hairpiece and delicately tied to invitations.  A  bird cage isn't just for holding cards - adorn it with flowers for a beautiful centerpiece, and to add to the woodland theme, use vintage field guides and binoculars as table decorations.  I've tied it all together here with a color scheme of ivory and robin's egg blue.
