Jesi’s Baby Shower…Her Favorite Work of Art

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Hopefully you haven’t gotten tired of my baby shower posts yet because this is quite the cute one!  One of my best girlfriends, Jesi from Jesi Haack Design, just had her third little one and this time she had an adorable little girl…River June!  I am so excited for little Blake and River to become best of friends!

I had the joy of hosting Jesi’s baby shower for little River at my house along with the help of Carissa, from JL Designs who did all the florals and yarn backdrop, Carlie from Gabriel Ryan Photography who took the fabulous photos and also crafted up a ton of yarn goodies, Amber from Pitbulls & Posies did the most amazing invitations and paper design, and Courtney from Joyful Joyful who also helped us craft too!

All of us girls loved the saying “You’re my favorite work of art” and we thought it was a perfect theme for Jesi’s shower since she is the ultimate wedding designer and crafter extraordinaire :)  We loved the idea of using yarn throughout the shower and I have to say I think it turned out pretty darn cute!

There are so many fun DIY projects to do with yarn…

We had a craft all set to go, but to be honest we skipped it in the end because all of us ladies were too lazy to do it :)

For the dessert bar and cake I definitely wanted to stick to the color scheme and incorporate the yarn!  We did a amber/yellow ombre buttercream cake and then accented it with yarn balls that Carlie made for me.

Our mini mason jar desserts have been a big crowd pleaser at parties and weddings recently so I thought I would do them again and just attach the spoons with yarn.

For the mini red velvet cupcakes we added a tiny purple fondant yarn knot to them for a fun accent.

Style Me Pretty Valentine’s Day Shoot

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

I got sweet surprise last week when I received an email from Abby who runs the fabulous wedding blog, Style Me Pretty…guessing most of your have heard about it :)

Abby asked if I could create a Valentine’s Day cake just for SMP and of course I jumped at the chance!  I knew I had to ask Carlie, from Gabriel Ryan Photography, to shoot it for me since I am basically in love with everything she photographs!  I also knew I had to have an amazing piece of furniture to display my cakes on so of course I called Jeni, from Found Vintage Rentals,…the best rental company around for those showstopping pieces you have to have!   We ladies had a great time putting the shoot together and I loved the outcome!

I absolutely adored Jeni’s furniture piece she brought and the paper flowers she accented it with were fabulous!

2012-02-10 - style me pretty - styled shoot - 029- signature edit - WEB

For the cakes I thought we would do one of the new techniques we have been trying out at the bakery, which I am in love with…smooth ombre buttercream!  I liked combining all the shades of pink and red together and of course we had to throw a golden heart on top!

2012-02-10 - style me pretty - styled shoot - 049- signature edit - WEB

Then for two of the side cakes we tried a new piping technique and incorporated the ombre shades as well…we added a golden XO and we were all set!

Little Boys & Bow Ties!

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

This post is definitely special to my heart! I had the pleasure along with Carissa of JL Designs & Courtney of Joyful Weddings & Events, of throwing one of my best girlfriends Jesi, from Jesi Haack Weddings a little baby shower to celebrate the birth of her adorable little son Maverick.  Jesi has been such a blessing in my life and I loved being about to give back to her just a little.  The theme that Courtney came up with was “Bow ties” and I have to say I was smitten with it from the start.

The talented ladies, Karrie & Elizabeth, from Posh Paperie created the cutest invitations and paper pieces for the party.  Of course I have to say a HUGE thank you to Carlie, of Gabriel Ryan Photography for the fabulous photos…they are just perfect!

A fun little side not about the shower is that it was actually held at my new house I bought last year.  Carissa did a beautiful job with the flowers & Courtney’s little accents along the way were so much fun.
