Who Doesn't Love a Great Party?

I adore celebrations of any kind, big or small but especially Weddings.

I'm a fool for Romance ♥  
Recently, my daughter's BFF, Alex got married at Tanglewood Park, Clemmons, NC.  Isn't she gorgeous?
I had the honor of helping make her day special by decorating, as well as attending.

The Happy Couple, Alex & Matt.
Isn't this photo fun?

She's an absolute DoLL & I highly recommend her

I created this display of stacked refurbished vintage suitcases paired with a new one from Michael's.  Looks retro sweet and serves as a repository to hold all the cards the new couple received from their guests.

I Love the way pink green look together, my absolute favorite color combination.

The Bride wanted these pretty cupcakes displayed on cake stands to double as part of the table centerpiece decor as well as tempting the guests to help themselves to a treat.

These IKEA lanterns were purchased last summer for my daughter's wedding table centerpieces.  
They are such a great price!  {$15 for the large 17" lanterns and $8 for the 12"}  
I wanted them to look different for Alex's wedding so I added pink organza ribbon tied in a bow around the LED pillar candles, silk flowers and ferns, butterflies and bird's nests for an enchanting spring look.

I used my Sizzix to cut/ emboss paper butterfly accents in blush pink, lavender, silver metallic and gray flourish print.

It's my dream to have a party/ event planning business specializing in vintage rentals & creative, whimsical decor details.   I've been hosting all kinds parties of my own, for my kids & our friends.  And it is through their support and encouragement that I think I have the courage to make a GO of it!

Next on my agenda is creating a separate blog for posting about the parties & events I have done in the past and future {Let's be positive!}  Then making a logo & business cards.  It's all very exciting!

Thank you to anyone that can offer some tips, guidelines or insight into forming your own business.  I am grateful for any & all the feedback.

I would Love to hear about some of your Favorite parties that you have attended.  What was it about them that made it so special or memorable?



  1. you did an awesome job decorating!
    SO NEAT that you want to have your own party planning business.
    I'm not much of a party or social person, but i can recommend a great business card thing.

    1. Thank you my dear, Sarah! I had fun picmonkeying with some of the photos. I think I might have looked at Vista print in the past as well for some prom stuff. They must be a good deal if they are so popular. Did you order your business cards already? I definitely could use some help, especially with designing the new blog ~ XO
