Ruffled Blog Feature

A few weeks ago a friend of mine, Jasmine from Jasmine Nicole Photography, asked if I would be interested in doing a styled shoot with her (she a crazy good photographer). I was so excited to be asked (and a little nervous about screwing it up). Anyway, she let me know what she was thinking of doing and we met to discuss details.  Hopefully I will have pictures to show you all, but until then, you can check out the St. Patrick’s Day Inspired Shoot over on Ruffled Blog or on Jasmine’s blog.

Emma’s Elegant Affair Bridal Shower

Emmasshower

Back in December my friend Stephanie and I hosted a shower for our friend Emma (and some other awesome ladies helped by bringing food and drinks).  It was one of the craziest weekends E-V-E-R. I did an insane thing.  I committed to 2 showers (yes, back to back on the same weekend!) and decorating for advent at our church. Not to mention it was two weeks after my surgery.  IN-SANE. Insane in the brain…insane in the membrane! It would not have happened if not for Stephanie.  She was a true rock star! After the first shower was over we cleaned […]

Stephanie’s Bridal Shower (A year late…better late then never…right???)

My friend Stephanie got married last March.  I hosted a bridal shower in February for her (yes, 2011 *hangs head in shame*).

We decided to go for the black and white theme (keeping it classy) with pops of green (it was one of her wedding colors). I decided to hang their engagement pictures on the backdrop to break up the pattern and to add a personal […]

Monogamy (Monopoly) Bridal Shower

This is perhaps one of the most unconventional bridal showers I have ever done. A darling friend of mine (Kristen) was getting married and I knew I wanted to throw her shower with another friend (hi Stephie!).  So we sat down and brainstormed a ton of ideas about what we wanted to do for her shower. Kristen loves books and reading.  In fact, she loves them so much, that her wedding centerpieces were books and seating cards were bookmarks (so cute!)  Our original plan for the shower was to do a total library theme with books and pages from books […]

Bridal Showers…they can be expensive to host on your own…and a lot of work.  They can also be simple and understated.  No one has ever accused me of that though.  Recently I have been finding all kinds of party blogs that are so inspiring but are really humbling.  These ladies are incredible at what they do.  So this year I’m going to try and think outside the box a little more with my parties.  Since I still have all the parties from last year to post, I figure I may as well put them up (knowing that this year I am going to try and take it […]
