Simply Rustic Wedding Reception

This wedding reception was an intimate celebration with close family and friends and was held in the backyard of the bride and groom's home - it was a perfect combination of simplicity and rustic elegance.

Preparations for the evening reception included hanging mismatched framed
photos of the bride and groom as children and family wedding photos

Stepping stones display the wedding date and make 
a nice keepsake for the bride and groom

A mix of vintage candelabras, silver and glass added to the overall 
character of this lovely wedding reception


Pink Roses add a pop of color to the outdoor setting

A border of white lights surround the seating area

Happy Bride and Groom

A Pretty in Pink... and Blue and Green Baby Shower

My friend Kristy (who's wedding can be seen here) welcomed a baby girl last month.  Her shower was so much fun to put together... there was lots of pink but some blue, green and yellow too! The shower was held on a Sunday afternoon so instead of traditional appetizers, her shower featured lots and lots of sweets... what better way to welcome a "sweet" new baby to the world!

Sweets Table! I love the pendents made with twine and pieces of fabric

Pink Food! Pink Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn, Cookie Cups with Pink Icing, 
Dipped Pretzels and Strawberry Cupcakes

"Cupcake" Tree made with onesies and displayed in cupcake liners, flowers in tin cans
spray painted in a light blue and Chalkboard made from an inexpensive picture frame
spray painted with chalkboard paint and painted the same shade of blue

Another DIY Chalkboard... love this quote for baby!

"Kaitlyn" banner greeted guests as they arrived and now hangs in her nursery

Candy Bar - who wouldn't love all these treats?
