A different take on a traditional table number.
I was involved with a baby shower recently for someone who used to baby-sit my babies.
Man, time passes so quickly. I can't believe kids I know are no longer kids and are starting to have their own bambinos!
When I get involved, you know I go all out and well, I love doing things that are different than my normal day-to-day jobs.
It started with the invitation:
Boho Baby was the theme.
Coupled with a little Beatles in the mix.
Then I started going a little crazy from there....
I'm helping with another baby shower in May. This time there are more women in charge. I'm not sure they are going to let me be as creative as I want to but then again, I am sure my paying clients will be very glad if I am cut off.
Wow! 2016 just flew by!!!
I have to confess, I don't remember much of the year only because there was so much beautiful activity twirling around!
Here is an example of such beauty:
Here is a wedding I did this past year for a couple who love the color RED! The suite is beautiful and elegant with a punch of color to show their passion for life!
You can never go wrong with red in a wedding. I used it in mine 16 years ago in May. Don't think of the color as just a Fall or Winter color. The use of red can make a bold statement without hitting you over the head with intensity.
Basically, you can utilize your favorite color anytime of the season when combined with the right flowers and decor. Besides, it is your wedding. This is one of the few times in life you can do and choose EXACTLY what you want!

A bride I recently worked with created a unique way to present her place cards.
I created the white place card with a bone folder then wrote with black ink in a Copperplate font on the lower portion of the card. She followed up with a red wax seal incorporating her soon-to-be initial on the top of the card.
A beautiful and elegant way to do a place card or escort card for your occasion!
An off-white muslin draped board is an unique yet classically beautiful way to display your escort cards for your wedding.

Love, LOVE, LOOOVVVEEEE! This bride and mother!
I can't believe it's been over two...three? months? since this event occurred!
I asked the mother of the bride if I could be an honorary member of the family. THIS! is how much I loved working with them. and you know what? They SMILED AND LAUGHED! ALL OF THE TIME!!!! Who does this anymore? They did! Love all around. Especially between the mother and daughter.
Reminds me of my mother and our relationship. Just the two of us. Always having each other's back.
The genuine enthusiasm was contagious and made me want to do the best work I could to make them happy. I do hope I succeeded.
I showed a sample of these place cards I was working on for this wedding earlier this year but was SO EXCITED!!! to see an actual professional photograph of my work on a blog! Rarely do I get to see the finished product and how it incorporated into a bride's wedding.
I love the simplicity of the Escort Card Holder. Simple yet very elegant.
Recently, I had a bride who used place cards as well as a seating list for her guests to reference and re-reference from.
First try and I think all of the names were correct!
