I can’t believe I’m one day away from having my very first Mother’s Day! To say I am on cloud nine is an understatement. Last year I clearly remember that I was sad for the first time on Mother’s Day wishing I had a little one on the way…we had started trying to get pregnant and weren’t yet and I was quite sad over it. Of course God had His perfect plan for our little family and soon after we got pregnant and that started the best year of my life. I simply love everything about being a mother to my little blake. I am quite obsessed with her and can barely stand being away at all…the longest has been 3 hrs so far She brings me so much joy that I can’t thank the Lord enough for her! Here are some of my very favorite photos of my little princess…yes you can tell I love a good headband! She is almost 2 months and like everyone tells you…it goes by way too quick!
I hope all of you mothers out there have a fabulous Mother’s Day and enjoy every second with your children!
Sorry if that was too many photos for you, but I just couldn’t help myself Also if you are wondering where I get most of my adorable headbands and clips my sister (who also makes a lot of our sugar flowers) is starting a new business, SaraRae, which will be selling handmade headbands and clips! The site should be up within a month, but she is still taking custom orders in the meantime and you can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org

I am so happy to share these gorgeous photos from the recent new issue of Wedding Nouveau! I was asked to be a part of the shoot for their main spread in the magazine and once they sent me over the inspiration photos I was completely enthralled. The theme was Parisian Souk and Abby, from Style Me Pretty, who featured the shoot said it perfectly when she described it as, “Luxe, cultural, and overflowing with so much pretty!” Picotte Weddings photographed the whole day and I have to say her photos are stunning! You can check out all the other wonderful vendors who were apart of this fabulous shoot at the end of the post!
You can see the whole magazine if you click on this link…enjoy!
I am just in love with this veil…the texture and detail is gorgeous!
For the cake we did a mini two tier that was then able to fit inside this amazing lantern…it was the centerpiece for the whole table and I loved how it turned out!
I wanted the cake to look rich in color and design, but also have vibrant pops of color too! The turquoise, coral, and gold were such a lovely combo together that is makes me want to design more cakes with this color scheme!
I love seeing my flea market finds put to good use…we brought along our coral color bowl and it was the perfect addition to the shoot if I do say so myself!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!

Well with the Kentucky Derby this weekend I thought I would share with you a recent photo shoot that I was a part of that features the bright, bold, and fun look of the Derby! Jessi from You and Me Events asked me to be a part of the shoot and I’m so glad I did as I think the whole shoot turned out gorgeous! You can check out all the wonderful vendors that were a part of the special day at the bottom of the post! This shoot was also featured on Green Wedding Shoes this week so you can pop over to their blog to see the full post!
Since the inspiration for the shoot had all of the fun colors I thought I would try something different and do a bold cake with bright sugar flowers. I thought the ranunculus flower would be perfect and we did them in shades of pink, orange, and yellow. I have to say this might be one of my all time favorite cakes!
I love that the shoot was done on location with real horses and such…so much fun!
This bridal bouquet is SO beautiful!
I love the mix of the colors and patterns for this table…perfect for a summer wedding.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!

I think this first photo describes exactly how I feel about this birthday party! I really am so blown away every time one of my favorite customers, Sarah, throws a birthday party for her children. She has such a gift for party planning and crafting that it should be her full time job! All of the amazing details she dreamt up below for her son Finn and daughter Scarlett’s birthday party will for sure knock your socks off…enjoy!
And not only is she talented, but I have to say this is one of the cutest little families I’ve EVER seen!
How fun are all of these game stations she created…
And of course you have to have gold fish for the winners!
I think every child should have a picture on a pony…I remember always loving looking at my photo of myself riding on a pony…too much fun!
Sarah basically dreamt up the dessert station and cakes all herself and just placed the order with us I love the rentals that she chose to rent from us…the tin ones are new that we got in and I think they fit perfectly with this party! The other two stands I made from spray painted candle sticks and flea market antique plates.
The ticket three tier cake is such a great idea!
Of coures little Scarlett needed a pretty ballerina cake!
Thanks so much Sarah, Finn, Scarlett, and Brennan for letting us be a part of such a special day!
