Inspiration: From Bell Tower Open House

You can never get enough inspiration for wedding decor! Here are some photos from the Open House at the Bell Tower on 34th this past week. There were numerous vendors at the open house, but one of my all time FAVES that I always drool over their work was "Darryl & Co." They have some of the most over the top gorgeous decor! It's amazing what they can create!

In this particular room last fall he had a peacock theme and it was drop dead gorgeous! Unfortunately I didn't have my camera then. This time I did not forget my camera and I definitely was not let down. The romantic rich reds he used was sooooo stunning!!

 Walking into this room it was amazing. The lighting on the walls brought a touch of elegance!
 I loved the red balls of roses! These things were HUGE!! My favorite part was the crystals hanging at the end of the string of petals! DROOL!

Above this large room was another room up in the balcony that Darryl & Co. had transformed it into a modern ceremony site. So chic! I LUVED!!

How cool are the crystal lamps and lightning down the aisle!

I love just the simplicity of white roses. So elegant!

They also incorporated carnations, which typically I am not too fond of because it looks cheap. However, I think they did an excellent job with that flower too make it a contemporary sophisticated look! This is totally not your middle school carnation where they dip it in dye and turns colors for $1. Ha!

Hope you like the reception decor ideas from the Open House! More to come in future blogs!

2013 Christmas Card

We've been sending out Christmas cards as a couple for a while now. Each year we try to be creative with them (past Christmas cards: 2009, 2010). Each year it gets harder and harder. We either add another dog or a kid. It's hard to get the dogs wrangled up and to look at the camera. It's even harder with kids! This year I tried to take some pictures of some inspiration I saw on pinterest. Here are some photos I took.

The card that I got through Love them!

This year we've been extremely blessed with our new home, the birth of our second son, and a new great job. More importantly we are blessed to have each other. Merry Christmas everyone!! God Bless!

2013 Mother's Day....DIY photo gift

2013 Mother's Day was extra special this year with what my guys did for me. While I wasn't home Mike got out our camera, tripod, remote for the camera and started to take some beautiful DIY shots. His inspiration was "Jett's Day." From getting ready, napping, & going out. It just captured so many great moments of our little guy.

I love the sentimental gifts that kids make their parents. It is worth millions to me. So when I received my mother's day gift from my guys I heart just fluttered with excitement.

Here are the pics from the mini DIY session .....

Mike wanted to put all these great photos in a frame. He had J paint the matte so it was more personable. 

The end result a DIY photo session with a toddler painted matte for Mother's Day. Something I will have and to cherish forever.

Jett's Vintage Train 3rd Birthday Party!

I was really excited about planning Jett's party because we would throw the party at our new home. So many possibilities!! I always try to brainstorm ideas months prior to the party so I can slowly come up with stuff and create them. I started to think of things that Jett was really into at this part of his life.

He loves planes, but we did that for his 1st birthday. He loves tractor, we did that for his 2nd party. Now at almost 3 he loved trains and Superman! So I asked Jett in November, "Jett do you want a choo-choo train party or Superman?" and Jett yells, "CHOO CHOO TRAIN!!" PERFECT!!

I was now thinking of things to do and how to decorate for this party. Of course everything has to start with the invitation. I created the invitation myself. I went with a old style boarding pass. 

This invitation is no longer available at my etsy shop
However, a new & improved one I made from my youngest son's birthday (below) is available to personalized here at my…
