First Birthday Party

My youngest son Julian just turned one! I wanted to share this super fun Bee-day party with you! I put together an inspiration board of images I gathered, along with some colors and graphics that inspired me! This really helped me with planning and pulling it all together!
The day was full of FUN! Our Ju-Ju Bee turned one, I had to do what I love to do....and that is host a party!

My amazing mom designed and decorated this beautiful cake! Thanks mom!

And Ju-Ju Bee enjoyed his cake very much!

Caterpillar Sticks, a.k.a. fruit kabobs!

Veggie Sticks

Ants on a Log!

Pasta Chef Salad, I created this salad based on Julian's favorite foods at the time! I wanted something healthy, kid friendly, and easy! I served this with Honey-Mustard dressing! YUMMY!

The BIG Cup of Dirt with slimmy gummy worms!

For fun we had a bounce house, coloring pages with bugs and played an outdoor game where I gave the kids a bug catcher kit from the dollar store and hid little bugs throughout the yard! They enjoyed this!

Sweet moment....daddy and Ju-Ju Bee !

Amy + Mike

This wedding invitation bundle and wedding program was custom designed for Amy and Mikes special day! Peacock blue, silver and paisley designs were featured in this package. The set was stunning! The bride and groom used the monogram throughout their wedding, including their thank you notes. Thank you Amy and Mike for the opportunity to work with you, I really enjoyed the process with you and your mom Kathy!

Natalie + Jeff

I recently worked with this awesome couple that I have known for a long time, thank you Natalie and Jeff for the opportunity, I loved being a huge part of your amazing day! Natalie wanted something unique and elegant, that was eclectic but romantic... We used lots of different vases in different shapes and sizes, we had two types of centerpieces one that was a flower arrangement and the other was a collage of glass, candles, and flowers! The head table was a collection of milk glass, candles and flowers! It was beautiful, and it really showcased them! I also designed and assembled their wedding invitation bundle, they were green with a hint of purple!

Here are a few photos that I took, I will dazzle you with some professional photos soon!

Alyssa + Colin Wedding

I recently had the joy of working with Alyssa and Colin on their amazing wedding day! I designed and assembled their beautiful invitation bundle. The colors of their wedding day were navy and magenta. The wedding took place in Ann Arbor, Michigan, both were graduates of U of M. The ceremony was outside in a courtyard, and the rain held off just long enough to get married! It was beautiful and perfect. The bride loved gerber daisies, and wanted to be surrounded by all shades of pink on her wedding day! Congratulations to you both! And thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with you, I really enjoyed being a part of your special day!

Here are just a few shots of their wedding day, these photos were taken by me, I will share some professional photos of their special day as well, stay tuned!
