Candles!


Candles make everything better!  Some people say the same thing about cheese, well I feel the same way about candles! LOL!  I use them in pretty much every event that I design. Candles are easy to use, inexpensive, and are a great complement to any centerpiece. 
In this setting I used a few of my favorite glass centerpieces with floating candles, and mirrors for the runner.  This a simple and budget friendly idea for your next table setting or dinner party.



I also used candlesticks and a longer stem candle holder to add some dimension in height. Many of these items can be found at the Dollar Tree or Walmart!

What do you like to use for centerpieces?

Project Revamp!



Have you ever revamped something?  Like an outfit or moved your furniture around to make the room look better?  Well, I did that with this particular centerpiece.  I created it last June for a bride that didn't have a big budget, but wanted something nice.  It's basically the same centerpiece, but I wanted to change a few things about it.  So I changed the vase to a reversible trumpet, added a base to the water color vases to give them height, and napkins and plates.  Below is a photo of the original centerpiece.  I also think that multiple centerpieces make more of a statement. There are a few subtle changes- not too much of a difference, but I like the revamped setting better. :)

Baby Shower: It's a Boy!



One thing that I really enjoy is creating new ideas for events!  I had a conversation with my client about what she wanted for her upcoming baby shower.  There weren't any particular details discussed, just that she wanted it to be really nice.  The next day she sent me a picture of the napkins, and other items she purchased for the shower.  The color theme was baby blue and chocolate brown; that simple color combination inspired me to create this!  I sent her a picture, and she loved it!  I'll be adding some other details to really make the room come together.  (I will post the final pictures after this weekend.)  I am truly excited that my client will enjoy the baby shower she's always wanted!
