B H L D N :: Decor

Yesterday, BHLDN debuted their new decor line. Now they won’t just dress us, they’ll dress our events too. Go take a peek at all the fun new shiny things. Tabletop. Decorating. Lighting. Keepsakes. Stationary. Here’s a taste..

There are some really lovely things.  Some affordable things!  Which is not often the case with Anthro, unless you scan the sale section.  Regardless, their new line is beautiful as always and definitely deserves a look!

Here’s to a kickin‘ weekend!

Oh Dear! :: Rustic Wedding Shower

This wedding shower was a gift to one of my best friends, and his beautiful fianc√©. At the end of this month, she will walk down the aisle, take his hand, and they will become husband and wife. They are full of life and ready to take on what this world throws at them! Stephen and Teresa both serve in the U.S. Marines and have a love for all things country .. as a lot of us do in Texas. For their shower, I wanted to incorporate their wedding colors and lots of rustic details.  The weather was perfect and we had lots of fun catching up with old friends and making new ones.

We had a biscuit bar, with all kinds of toppings … including the infamous jar of bacon!

My brother contributed some deer antlers he had, you know, just lying around … and even took the time to mount them for me! Like a pro!

What kind of Texan party would it be without some haybails?!

One of my favorite things about the food [other than the bacon, of course] was the Heart Cake that my mom and I made the night before.  I fell in love with this idea a few months ago … and just had to try it!  We were going for a more “peachy” color, but with the cocoa it turned out much deeper.  It was quite yummy, though!

A HUGE thanks to everyone who helped with this event, especially my husband — lugging those pallets around — and my mom, chef extraordinaire.  Also, to the wonderful Brandy & Brandon Frank of Bella Pop Photography!  They so graciously took pictures of the details before the guests arrived.  Hugs to all.

Oh Dear :: Wedding Shower Sneak Peek

This shower was so special to me. One of my best friends, Stephen, has found a wonderful woman to love and care for in life. It’s beautiful. The weather was perfect, bellies were full, and laughter was abundant. I can’t wait to share the detail pictures so graciously taken by Brandy of Bella Pop Photography .. but for now, my amateur photography will have to do!

Yayy for reunion with old friends!

Fringe :: Wedding Detail

Fringe isn’t something that is normally rises to the topic of conversation, unless we’re talking about cowboys in wranglers and chaps or Cher rocking one of her outrageous costumes .. until now.¬† Take a look at these pictures, all ideas created by Martha Stewart’s wedding team.

Wedding favors, centerpieces, invitations, placecards – all adorned with a touch a fringe and a bit of flair. I’m loving this idea and the fact that it resembles the color scheme of the up*and quickly*coming style shoot. Maybe we will incorporate some of these ideas? You’ll just have to wait and see.. But for now, enjoy these.

So. excited. for. this. weekend. Lots of wedding shower goodness to come!

Oh Dear :: Wedding Shower Inspiration

Inspiration boards are a great way to organize your ideas and develop the overall style and feeling of an event. Although the actual event may not completely reflect the inspiration board, it is an awesome tool to spring ideas from and to show to other people or vendors who will be contributing to the event.

[Rustic Love]

This board is one I created for an upcoming wedding shower at the end of this month. One of my best friend’s from high school (who was also Levi’s best man) has found a woman to experience life with. They are both marines and love the outdoors, so I knew this shower had to have a rustic feel to reflect their style … but of course, I also want to incorporate some details that show the definite and apparent love these two have for each other! This event is titled Oh Dear and will incorporate lots of handmade details! I can’t wait for this shower!

If you need a custom inspiration board for an upcoming event, please get in touch!
