Moss Love.

It seems like the latest trend has been moss and I am loving it. More and more weddings are going green and incorporating outdoor ceremonies and what better way to decorate than to use the resources found in nature!

My latest moss creations include a unique ring bearer pillow and moss pomanders to line your aisle or decorate your reception. Both great pieces for your outdoor themed event!

I have been creating several new bouquets lately! All bouquets are made with quality silk flowers and come with a free matching bout for your groom.

Happy Planning!

Getting Inspired By Custom Orders - Leilani Tropical Ring Bearer Pillow.

Recently worked on a custom ring bearer pillow for a lovely bride getting married in Hawaii. Loved it so much I listed it in my shop as a regular item! Can't wait to see pics of it in action in their tropical ceremony. :)

Getting Inspired By Custom Orders - Vintage Glam Wreath.

I absolutely love receiving custom orders as it forces me to think outside the box and get my creative juices flowing! Recently, I had a request to create a wreath (which at the time wreaths weren't even offered in my shop) and I am so thankful I took on the task because I am in love with the result!

The Vintage Glam Wreath is covered in ivory and white flowers including roses, hydrangea, carnations and peonies. I also added white feathers to give it that vintage look!
Thanks to the inspiration of one of my lovely etsy customers, I am now happily listing this wreath in my shop and looking forward to making more wreaths to add as well!
Contact me if you'd like me to create a custom wreath with your colors and personal style for your big day!
Happy Planning!

New Item Spotlight - ELISE Ring Bearer Pillow.

Everyone loves sparkle! The stars, the sun reflecting off the ocean, that gorgeous diamond you might be wearing on your ring finger! The Elise Ring Bearer Pillow is bright white with a white bloom and a gorgeous sparkly brooch fastened in the middle. The vintage style brooch is detachable for you to wear after your wedding as a sweet reminder of your big day!

Happy Planning!

Love Is In The Air - Love Letters Wedding Card Box.

Spring is coming soon (Can you tell I am over winter already?) and it is a season for not only love and romance but trying new things!

So in the spirit, I have entered the wide world of decoupage! It involves some sticky glue and a little bit of a mess but I am absolutely in love with the results. Such a sweet, vintage look. I plan on making some more wedding card boxes for my shop this way in addition to my traditional painted ones.

Happy Planning and stay warm!

Brand New Chapter.

I am so excited to announce that Friday was my last day in Corporate America!

After nine years with the same company, I am so grateful to be able to move on and enjoy the rest of my pregnancy at home. I am also extremely excited to be running my etsy shop full time and to expand and start developing all the ideas I have had floating around in my head for so long.

It is a very exciting new chapter in my life and I couldn't be happier. Be on the lookout for new items coming soon!! Wedding season is fast approaching!

To Distract From Winter!

One thing I love about living in Texas is the fact that it stays relatively warm for most of the year. I'm not sure what is going on but it has been abnormally chilly here the past few days and it has me dreaming about sunshine, fresh flowers, gardens and all things spring!
It also reminded me that spring and summer wedding season is on its way and I decided to do a tweak on a favorite from last year, the ring bearer birds nest. You can check it out in my shop for more details!

Hope everyone stays warm! :)

Happy Planning!
