Spring Wreath

 I made some new wreaths for my front doors on the cheap...
 The willow wreaths were from the Dollar Store and I spray painted them with Valspar spray paint in Exotic Sea.
 The main part of the flowers are made out of...wait for it....plastic drink bottles.
 I used fabric stiffener and cut flowers out of fabric to layer in some patterns.
 I didn't stop there! I also made some new pillow covers for my bench.
 All fabric is from WalMart.
People can't find our doorbell because the bench covers it up so I made a sign out of a Dollar Store frame, spray painted it and photocopied the fabric I used for the flowers on the wreath. I then used my Cricut to make the letters with vinyl.
My inspiration was from Tatertots and Jello and her whimsical Spring wreath from last year.
I still want to make a "Spring" banner to go over the front door.

DIY Cake Stands

These DIY cake stands are genius! I love the dollhouse trim used to embellish the edges.

Royal Tea

On July 29, 1981, I woke up at 5:00 am to watch Lady Diana Spencer wed Prince Charles. Little did I know that it was the 15th birthday of my future husband!
I have always been a Royal watcher and I am so excited that Prince William has decided to take a bride. I love that they are doing things "their" way by making most of the decisions about their celebration unlike the wedding of his parents.
I found these invitations on etsy and have decided to host a Royal Tea on April 29th, the day of the Roayl wedding. I can't wait to host this special celebration stateside.

Puppy Party

I had the honor of hosting a puppy party for a repeat client in Bel Air last weekend. There were over 40 kids plus parents, live puppies to play with, puppies to stuff, Primp your Puppy boutique and glitter tattoos.
I also made all of the flower arrangements along with the bone picks in different colors.
Even the glitter tattoos were puppy themed!
The kids got to decorate t-shirts for their new friends and filled out the appropriate adoption papers.
I had 14 different outfits to choose from. My favorite was the biker guy with a "leather " jacket and pant set.
The puppies were stuffed with different types of fluff *wink*
Everyone got a wishing star to put in their own puppy and then had another star to make a birthday wish for the birthday girl. Her puppy was filled with more than 40 birthday wishes!
Room for everyone to enjoy sandwiches and scones from The Tea Gardens.
The cakes were from SusieCakes.
The birthday girl's sister was lucky enough to have 3 puppies on her lap!
