Utterly Engaged Feature!

I had the pleasure of working with the lovely ladies from Utterly Engaged again for their 1 year anniversary issue!  When I heard the idea for the shoot, “Sew in Love”, and then the amazing team I was going to get to work with I was SOOO excited! The team included…Art Direction & Stylist by Sugar and FluffLucia of DL/sh Design and UtterlyEngaged, and props & design from Jeni from Found Vintage Rentals!  The fabulous florals were from my girl Carissa from JL Designs…she never disappoints! Also the paper painted bouquets by Kristy Rice of Momental Designs were too much fun! I have to say a major thank you to Paula & Mike from Luna Photo for the gorgeous photos; I absolutely love working with them!  Here’s some of the pages from the online magazine!

The models were simply gorgeous & got perfectly beautified by the talented Fiore Beauty.  Their lovely gowns were by Elizabeth Dye of The English DeptSarah SevenHolly Stalder, and Joan Shum.

Lucia was sweet enough to send me over a couple more photos from the shoot and I had to post them!  I loved making this cake & seeing it come to life.  We made lots of custom vintage molds & put sugar paste in them & then painted them.  I loved how it turned out!



We’ve recently been starting to make a lot of french macaroons at the shop and boy can I tell you that I am now addicted to them! My talented assistant pastry chef Susie has been coming up with so many scrumptious options that I think I’ve gained 5 lbs. just taste testing them!









We also made some yummy little french desserts and drizzled them in pink frosting!  I wanted to make homemade donuts too, but sadly we ran out of time, so lucky me I have a donut shop right next door to my shop & picked some up for props!  Speaking of props…how jealous are you of Jeni from Found Vintage Rentals…her collection is AMAZING!



Thanks again Lucia, Henny, & Eva for this fun opportunity!  The next photos are from the talented Kristin from Kristin Eldridge Photography!  Kristin blesses me all the time with her many talents and again came by my shop and took some photos for me of our new window display….it is quite hard to capture the cutest of it all with the funky windows & reflections, but Kristin did a great job!



Even though my good friend Jesi, from Jesi Haack Weddings, was almost about to pop out a little baby she still was sweet enough to come over to my shop & help me put it all together!  We got inspiration from the recent Martha Stewart Weddings magazine and made the fabric hoops for the main display.  We then hung some flag banners that Jesi had from previous weddings and we were basically all set!











If you follow me on Twitter you probably already know that I am almost finished with my new online store!  We have been working on it for what seems like FOREVER, but it really is almost finished!  I have such a love and passion for cute, adorable cake stands and I really wanted to share that with my readers, so they can get them too!  I will be selling the most gorgeous cake stands, platters, dishes, domes…..the list goes on and on!  Here are a couple sneak peaks that Kristin took for me…aren’t they dreamy!

    Noted that you worked with a vintage rental company – I needed that a few weeks ago when I styled my daughters vintage inspired Sweet Sixteen Party. I ended up buying most things!!!
