Photo Friday: Let Me Call You Sweetheart

Friday, February 21, 2014

Here are some photos from our very sweet Victorian-themed Valentine's Day party.  Lots of tulle, pink, and cherubs.  And of course cupcakes - chocolate cupcakes with cherry jam frosting.  Yum.  If you've seen photos from my other parties here on this blog, you may have noticed that I repurpose a lot of my decorations for different occasions.  I do enjoy adding props and pieces to my collection, and try to find as many creative ways as I can to make good use out of them.  The cherub is actually a Christmas ornament, but I think it fits in perfectly here.  The birdcage, which I bought at AC Moore, was used at last year's indoor garden party and again at our vintage seaside birthday party.  This time I cut out butterflies that I had printed onto cardstock, folded them gently in the middle, and attached with a bit of double sided tape (a little tedious, but worth it, I think).  I just picked up the little cupcake stand at Joann Fabrics, so keep an eye out - you might see it turn up again soon!

Treasury Time: Rainforest

Friday, February 7, 2014

When you're looking for inspiration, nature will never let you down.   I found so many great ideas putting together the rainforest treasury below.  My latest bunting in "Macaw" was inspired by bright, bold parrot hues in red, golden yellow, turquoise, and teal.  It would be perfect for a jungle, zoo, or explorer-themed party, or for a destination wedding to a lush locale like Costa Rica, perhaps.
