Happy 2014!

Hello friends and Happy New Year!  It’s been awhile since I’ve been on the blog due to the holiday craziness.  I’m looking forward to a great year with all of you!

I love sparklers and had to have some for NYE 🙂

I purchased these star sparklers from TOPS Malibu online.  They have a ton of different ones for any party or celebration; so fun!

I promise to be back soon!  Have a fabulous day!

DIY Christmas Wreath

Good morning friends!  Christmas is quickly approaching and I’ve been trying to finish up all my decorating.  I made a Christmas bulb wreath that came out super cute and wanted to share it with you today.  I found the project from Doranda on Watch Out for the Woestmans.  My Christmas theme this year is silver and gold.  The wreath was easy to make and I found all the items at Hobby Lobby and Dollar Tree – styrofoam wreath (14″), Christmas bulbs in the colors of your choice, a hot glue gun, and ribbon.

I had never been to the Dollar Tree store before and their ornaments were perfect for this project!  I added a few more ornaments since this picture was taken to fill the wreath up a little bit.  Stay tuned for pictures of my Christmas tree, love it! 

Have a fabulous day!

Our Wedding Ceremony Chalkboard

Hello friends!  Sorry it’s been a bit quiet on the blog lately.  I don’t want to make excuses but my adorable 2 month old (almost 3!) nephew is in town from the east coast and I’ve been trying to hang with him.  Also, I’ve started up piano lessons again!  It’s been fun!  But let’s get back to the wedding stuff…

I’ve talked about chalkboard details in weddings before and how much I love them.  I wanted to do a wedding chalkboard for our ceremony instead of the paper ones that you see at most weddings.  I found my inspiration from this wedding:

Pretty, right?  Our ceremony sign was designed by our wedding planner, Liz from Eventfully Beautiful.

Loved the way it turned out and it saved a lot of paper!  There are alternatives out there instead of using paper programs 🙂

Have a fabulous day!

Wooden Wedding Cake Toppers

Hi guys!  I came across these adorable wooden cake toppers while browsing on Etsy and had to have some! I placed an order for our one year wedding anniversary which we celebrated this past Saturday. Charlene from Creative ButterflyXOX creates the cutest wooden cake toppers and they are completely personalized! Not only did I have Ryan and myself made, but our little Maltese pup Sophie too!

Have a fabulous day!

Wedding Favors + Sweets: The Candy Bar

Hello friends! Today I’d love to share our candy bar which we used as a wedding favor for our guests. We stuck with the black and white with red theme matching all the candies to that. Everything came out perfect and the setup was so cute! The candy jars and scoops were borrowed from a friend and the cake pops were made by my Aunt May.  I printed out the Love Is Sweet sign here, and found the frame at Hobby Lobby for half off.

Bridesmaid Bouquets

I loved my bridesmaids bouquets!  Designed by Natalie Galasso Designs, they really popped against all the girl’s long black dresses.  The bouquets were composed of freedom, black magic, and wild one (dark hot pink) roses and finished off with black satin ribbons.
