Recently we celebrated Cameron’s first birthday with a family-only party designed to match the sweet, feminine, precious personality of our baby girl. With inspiration drawn from The Beaufort Bonnet Company’s pattern “Everyday is a Gift”, the party theme was “She’s a gift!”. And that she really is!
I’m bringing #throwbackthursday to the blog today! I can’t believe this romantic wedding at Reynolds Plantation was almost ONE year ago! My goodness, where has time gone?!
When we were planning her wedding, Katie expressed opinions on her priorities for the wedding and otherwise stepped back with full trust in me to create an unforgettable day with specialized details. It’s safe to say we did just that!
After days of brainstorming, my heart was sold on confetti poppers for our reveal. I just love the childish happiness that every person feels when standing under confetti falling from the sky. There are plenty of great sources online to purchase pre-made confetti poppers, but I decided to take the DIY approach. I just wasn’t confident in purchasing the product online and not knowing if they would actually “pop” for the big moment. There are several DIY how-to guides on blogs, and I think Lauren Conrad’s Guide is the most accurate to follow. An important note – none of the DIY guides online actually show the activation [launching] of the confetti popper. This can be very misleading for expectations.
We recently got to share the exciting news of our upcoming baby’s gender with our loved ones at a Gender Reveal Brunch. Any type of event is fun for me to plan, and I will admit that I can get swept up creating over the top details in a heartbeat. However, Brince and I didn’t want to go overboard for this event. Our priority was to have an intimate, easy reveal with our families that didn’t inconvenience anyone’s schedule. Thus, we decided to host a Saturday brunch at our home with all the details taken care of so that everyone could just show up and enjoy!
We were overwhelmed with the response to the recent photo that we shared on social media announcing that we are pregnant with a baby boy. I can’t express how warm my heart is from all the love and encouragement that you have shared with us. I hope you enjoy these photos [and outtakes] from our fun confetti photography session!
I’m hoping to see a resurgence of beautiful blues used in wedding palettes. I think they are often overlooked or only associated with seaside weddings. Here’s an inspiration board that I designed with dusty blue as the focal color that would make a mark in any geographic location.
With Erica being such a close friend and my passion being weddings, it was only natural that we talked about plans for her wedding EVERY time we were together! I loved helping her refine her wedding design and details. Additionally, she hired my super talented sister-in-law, Maggie Griffin Design, to do the flowers for her wedding. Therefore, I got to play “Flower Assistant Extraordinaire” for the wedding weekend, which was so fun!
At our very first meeting at Allison’s family’s river home, I was absolutely giddy when they told me they would like to hold the wedding and reception there are the house in the backyard. Their home has a beautiful lush backyard that rolls right down to the river. My mind started racing with ideas! This was the perfect backdrop for a personalized yet romantic wedding reception.
Recently I had the opportunity to decorate at a sweet friend’s house for her precious sister-in-law’s baby shower. My friend text me a while back and asked, “Do you do baby showers?” I couldn’t respond fast enough! Heck yes, I do! I was so pumped to step away from the world of weddings for a minute to play with sweet pastel baby colors.
Yay! Welcome to my new site! I hope you enjoy looking around and check back for a post soon…
