Item Spotlight - Green Berry Pomander.

These sweet green berry pomanders are definitely one of my shop favorites! Each pomander is lightweight and adorned with ribbon looped into a handle to slip onto your little flower girls wrist.

They are definitely a unique alternative to flower girl baskets and the bold green seems to be a wedding favorite this year. These are also great for younger flower girls who may not quite be old enough to master the whole throwing the petals out of the basket routine. :)

They also work lovely as aisle decor to hang on shepards hooks or pews. Will definitely give your ceremony that pop of color you have been looking for!

Also available with brown or white ribbon:

Happy Planning!

How It All Began.

Becoming engaged and beginning the whole wedding planning process is one of the most exciting times in life!

While planning my wedding in 2008 I scoured websites and catalogs looking for all of the personal, perfect details for my special day. Unfortunately, when it came to customized items I was bummed to find there weren't a whole lot of options, specifically, wedding card boxes... I could only find white! Which led me to creating my own using our wedding colors silver, black and deep red. What I came up with was this:

Then a few friends asked me to create theirs:
Then I stumbled upon etsy and officially opened up my shop in May and the rest is history! I also refined the style of my boxes and added other fun items like pomanders, ring bearer and flower girl items and even note cards for thank you's after the wedding!

I am so blessed and grateful to do what I love and work with such wonderful brides every day!
