Color, with a side of wedding.

This inspiration board makes me full on smile. Perhaps anytime I see loads of colors, I smile. But I'm thinking it's because it seems so laidback, warm, and full of life. 

Photo Spot Inspiration Post #2


Those are fighting words.

I'm not very patient when it comes to waiting for spring flowers to bloom. Eerrrr. But peony, for you, I would wait forever.

Or at least a few more months.


If you're wondering....

.... I'm in complete love with this wedding. I love it. I want to be it for Halloween.

Sorry. Had to sneak a Will and Grace reference in.

This is a story....

of a Real Worlder turned wedding planner.


It's best to start my day...

with a blog.

Want some fun inspiration for a good save the date, that spins off from the ol' photobooth version? This one's perfect. Go check out Brooklyn Bride for more super creative approaches to Save the Dates.


Yes, please.

A turkish tradition is to have your single bridesmaids sign the bottom of your wedding shoes. Legend says that whose name fades the most, after all your mad partying, is the most likely for marriage next.

I wonder if the same person would catch the bouquet, too?

stich n' biotch.

I've been getting a jumpstart on holiday gifts this year, by thinking up a boatload of DIY projects. I mean, I don't know about you, but this chick is broke! So, I'm getting back to my creative roots.

Well, I saw this embroidery article on A Disney Wedding and it immediately reminded me of my Grammy. She was the first person to teach me how to embroider (sp?), and I always remember spending a summer in Pennsylvania... working on one project. I'm thinking that I could make her something as a Christmas gift, to show her what she's taught me how to do. And how every time I see those cross-stiches, I think of her.

Come to think of it, I never did finish that project that one summer.

Bunny Kisses

Jennifer Murphy makes one of a kind bears, and other "silly things" as she describes on her website. But this ceramic bunnies, takes the cake. Hah, get it?

And I'm pretty sure Mr. Tyrone Bigguns, my bunny lover, would approve of me having this cake topper.


Clickity Click.

I would like to come up with an alternative to the expensive photobooth (but if I were miss moneybags, I'd so jump on it!).
I've been thinking about putting together a photospot, like many others have done recently....where people can take their own picture become part of a scrapbook guest book. And for those that know me well, I am a scrapbook lover.
The only thing I'm thinking, is that I will probably need someone to "man" the photospot. It's a hard call. But, I definitely want to look into this idea a bit more.


ball pits are for kids.

So Melvin, Mr. Dale, and I all went to Ocala this weekend for some kiddie birthday fun. It was Kaitlynn's 2nd birthday party, and a lot of fun. We went to a mexican restaurant when we first got into town, and got some good news. They're expecting child numero dos!

So this bird mobile post is for them. And soon to be baby.


Take that.

So this week I picked up my first batch of silk flowers for bouquets/ centerpieces. I got a tip that a floral store in town was having a liquidation sale, and a semi-popular craft store as well. So what did I do? I RAN. Directly into the arms of $1 a stem silk flowers, and 50% off peonies.
Now, I did not get much. This, is because it is fall. Kind of winter. But really fall. Which means that if my colors where orange, red, and gold.... I'd be gold. Unfortunately, I have spring colors (and a spring wedding). So, I got a bit.
Still, I got a bit, on sale.
Booya, sucky economy. Take that.


Give me the dish.

My Mom sent me a link to this 3-tiered jewelry stand. It's handmade using a combination of new and vintage ceramic dishes. What an original idea, to even take it and use it as a wedding centerpiece.
Go Mom, great find.


Music Favors

Melvin has mentioned wanting to do personalized cd's, and I saw this on The Everyday Bride's blog and love it. These "vinyl cds" have a really retro feel, and are still technically the modern cd.
