Burlap and Lace Styled Bridal Shoot

burlap and lace blog post-p001How fun it was to be part of this beautiful styled wedding shoot.  I was approached by Nina of Lilly Ann Photography to help put her vision of a rustic and pretty county bridal shoot together.  She asked for lace, burlap and hints of turquoise and the end result was nothing short of pure sweetness!


It is always nice to work with friends and it was my pleasure to be in this with Carmen of Carmen’s Sweet Creations.  We have really become quite a duo :)  She is not only my go to cake pop girl, she can really wow with her other baking talents as you will see with these beautiful gold trimmed fondant flowers!

I put together ‘I do’ flag cupcake toppers by first designing the printable.  Then after cutting them out, I used a hot glue gun to attach it to a wooden toothpick.  I chose a toothpick over a lollipop stick because I think it looks more rustic.  The little gold ball at the top is actually a larger circular sprinkle that I dipped in in gold sparkle.  Lasted I tied a cute jute twine bow and glue gunned that to the paper flag.  A bit tedious, but soooo cute!


This cupcake was wrapped in a bit of lace to add a bit more cuteness :)

This adorable blue ruffle cake by Carmen got just a bit more love with some cream burlap flowers I put together.  They are so simple, just cut out various sizes of circles and glue gun them together.  then I added the wooden button to the front, which hides the goopy glue job :)  Lastly, I hot glue gunned a toothpick to the back so that it could be added to the cake.  You place the flower face down and drop a good amount of hot glue in the center and then hold the toothpick vertical until the glue hardens.  all done!


Hope you enjoyed this styled shoot and got a few tips on some of my party secrets :)

Woodland Baby Shower Party

woodland shower15Are you ready for some adorable woodsy inspiration?  Well, come take a look at the seriously sweet woodland themed baby shower that Shannon brought to life for her expectant sister’s little man on the way!

Every bit of this party was planned to perfection and not a detail was missed.I really like how she assembled the napkin wraps.  Instead of just taping them at the back, she used a ribbon and knotted it on either end, giving them a little bit more of a rustic feel.

The table centerpieces are just ~ a d o r a b l e !  Please note, I reserve the expanded spelling for only those times when I am truly inspired and I find her centerpieces i n s p i r i n g.  From the mini pom poms, to the handmade mini bunting, to the cupcake toppers being used for ornaments, to the twine wrapped vase, to the cream ribbon, to the wooden charger…really, this is pretty darn adorable!

Shannon printed on the back portion of every printable so that every side was pretty to see.  I told you, she did not miss a detail!

When I was personalizing her party package, she asked that I leave a set of the favor tags blank because she was planning to use then as place cards.  I thought it was an interesting idea…and here is how the guests found their seats, too cute!

I do love to use the water bottle wraps on glass bottles and the striped straws are just a nice finishing touch!

Shannon used these wooden charger/plates throughout the party decorations and I think they really added to the woodland theme.  She even created rustic cake platters by placing the wooden plate on top of a tree stump! I have seen the wooden plates at Micheal’s and have honestly wanted to pick them up, but just did not have an occasion coming up that I could use them so I was really happy to see them in this party.

I just have to share one more picture of the centerpieces…the mini bunting is made with patterned paper that is included in all of my party packages.  She simply cut the papers into mini pennants and glued them to the ribbon.
