Event Planning

Now that I actually have more time to devote to this blog and event planning, I've been taking some steps towards networking and have made some great connections!  One of course is the fabulous Lauren from Your Bridal Bestie.  So for all of you brides who are in the midst of planning your dream day or have just planned your wedding, please visit her site!

So in honor of her big day, I thought I would offer some advice on event planning.  Thankfully, I've gained quite a bit of experience in my younger days and during the past year it paid off tremendously in regards to my last position in the workforce.  Without delaying any longer, here is the first step to Yours Truly, the "PLANNING" stage (the second is "perfect" and the third of course is the "party" stage).  Since I am in the beginning of this entire process, anyone that needs advice/direction, please contact me (free of charge of course for the time being); however, if things really start picking up I may have to start charging, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there...:)

Feel free to either comment below, keep this format for your own personal use or even e-mail me to assist you.  I hope this helps or at least steers you in the right direction despite the overwhelming urge to tackle a million things at once, but remember, that's what I'm here for, too - distance does not matter at this point in the stage!!!!

From a personal perspective, please give credit where credit is due - remember to site your sources!  I need all the support I can get right now!!!  Thank you!!!

Tea Party Fun

Happy Friday - I'm a little behind on communication lately, but I am enjoying the weather and trying to find fun, creative ways to share with you all.

For some reason, the color yellow keeps popping up everywhere and although it's not normally a color I choose, I just couldn't resist, and I'm sure you'll see why...

Yellow, Blues and Greens Are the PERFECT combo for a summer event!

The yellow adds just the right amount of color!

Carrot, anyone?  Couldn't resist these cute bunnies!

And more bunnies!

So bright and cheerful - definitely can't go wrong with yellow in the summer!

Hope you all enjoyed my fun little shoot!  Any of your own ideas?  Please share!!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Bridesmaid Bliss

This past weekend, I had the priviledge of being in my brother's wedding.  The colors were mostly a variance of multiple shades of purples.  Although it was a ridiculously hot weekend (and this weekend it's absolutely freezing!!!), it was nice to actually be in a wedding and to see it from a completely different angle.  Any bridesmaid stories?  Feel free to share!  Thanks for reading and enjoy the new month - hard to believe we're already half-way through 2012!

My bouquet - still alive after almost a week!!
