Lace Bridal Shower
The best man in our wedding is engaged and I had the pleasure of designing the shower for his bride-to-be a couple weekends ago! We were told that the bride liked lace and that the wedding colors included grey and blush pink so we based our theme off of these tidbits. Never underestimate the power of Baby's Breath. Bunches of these babies together are simply breathtaking. I made the centerpiece above by wrapping the stems of the baby's breath with floral wire and sticking them into a half circle of floral foam. Below I stuck stems directly into the chandelier.  [...]
Fall Shower for Baby Jayde
Last Fall I helped host a shower for one of my best friends from college, Lynsday. Lyndsay and I were in a sorority together in college and although we were in the same pledge class, we didn't really get to know each other until we became officers together our Senior year. I remember the first time we had lunch together. We shared our visions for the upcoming year and it was like we were reading each other's minds. We both knew immediately that we were going to make a great team. Fast forward to present day and we're still working [...]

As a result, we decided to plan a dual [...]
The “Shoe” Game
As promised, here are the questions I asked my parents for The Shoe Game we played at their anniversary party. I found these questions in several places around the internet and tweaked them a bit to match my parents' personalities so I advise you do a Google search if you want more suggestions. This list is safe for anniversaries/grandparents/children whereas other lists can get a little risky. ;)-Who made the first move?-Who said "I LOVE YOU" first?-In high school, who broke it off the most? (My parents dated all throughout grade school and lived on the same street. Every time they [...]
My Parents’ 30th Wedding Anniversary
My parents celebrated 30 years of marriage this year and so I of course insisted on throwing a party (duh). My cousins threw their parents a wonderful party last year and I wanted to make sure my parents felt just as special. The difference, though, is that my cousins had nine adults to help plan their parents soiree and I had me, my sister (sort of) and my husband (who I was trying to boss around to a minimum). My brothers were both MIA as one plays professional baseball and the other is away at college and my sister is in the [...]
