Last Sunday I was very lucky to work with the sweet and talented Lacy of Scissortail Events! Lacy was a participating event planner for Tulsa's WOW (Wedding OpenHouse Weekend) at Bridle Creek and came to me for help with her tablescape design. After many design discussions, Lacy decided on going with several paper pieces including menus, place cards, and centerpiece wraps!

I love love the way the lime place cards turned out! Lacy's design was so fresh and sunny. A perfect ending for the summer. I also designed a coordinating invitation set based on the fabric she chose for the napkins. The color scheme was so cheery and lit up the whole room!

Scissortail Events did an amazing job on the table design! All of her time and hard work really paid off. I am so happy to be part of such a wonderful event and wonderful design! For more photos, please visit our facebook page!

Life's More Fun When You Dress It Up!

My niece, Rori, turned 2 in June and her very talented Mommy planned a dress-up birthday party to celebrate! During the planning process, she informed me on her decorating ideas: a wall of mirrors, paper garland, and tons and tons of fun dress-up items for both boys and girls! (As much as Rori loves her girly purses and clothes, she didn't want her boy cousins to feel left out. She's very polite)

And so to keep it gender friendly, I designed the party invitations with the wall of mirrors in mind. Keeping it simple and colorful. All the ladies on the invite list received a handheld mirror shaped insert, and the gentlemen received a mustache on a stick (not shown).

For a little extra fun in the mail, I wrapped the invitation in a hand sewn paper garland to match the garlands that would be used at her party. I had a lot of fun making these invites and am always so pleased to see them fit into the party theme so perfectly! To see more of Rori's 2nd birthday party, including the yummy cookies I HERE.
