Wedding Color Trend 2013

Picking wedding colors & themes can be fun, yet a challenge.  It never hurts to look for inspiration on the web.  Here's an article in the Huffingtongpost  that talks about this years boldest color trend: GOLD!  It's a color that can be paired with just about anything, adds sparkle, shine & glamour.  What do you think?

A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words!

A picture IS truly worth a thousand words!  It is so gratifying to be able to see photos of my work out in the world in action!  Recently I have been privileged to see & have some photos to share from some of my clients & their talented photographers.   Here's a few of my favorites from bride Marci & her recent destination wedding.  I made the pinwheel boutonnieres for them!

And here are some photos from photographer Ron Evans Photographer LLC from a recent wedding that I made pinwheels & an origami bouquet for:

Lost & Found

Well, I haven't blogged in months.....lets just say I was lost in the middle of life, wedding orders, and more!  But I am making a renewed effort to get back to the blogging world & be "found" again.

My son turned 1 this month!  I can't believe it.  Here we are at the beach recently, getting his toes wet for the first time (he couldn't get enough!)

I have been very busy with wedding orders in my ETSY shop, especially with origami bouquets & pinwheels.  Here's a few from the past few months:
 This is a paper anniversary bouquet (the left one I made to mimic the right)
 A bride's bouquet
 A wedding party set
 Aisle decor
 Bride's bouquet
 Giant pinwheel bouquet

Pinwheels to add to centerpieces....

I'm still working away & will be sure to come back to share more soon!
