Beach Theme Wedding Reception

The lovely Mr. & Mrs. Morgan went the destination wedding route and recited their vows on a beautiful sandy beach in Mexico. Then decided to bring the beach (theme) back to the great state of Texas to celebrate with family and friends. 
For this beach inspired reception we went with teal, seashells, pearls, candles, burlap and sand decor with shimmery accents.
 One of the highlights of the decor was this fabulous gold sequin backdrop with a teal curtain that everyone struck a pose in front of.


The beach sand trays, vellum and sequins lampshades, fishing net wrapped mason jars, and hand painted and glittered shells decor were all custom made (by The CGD studio of course).

Material list:

Sequins Mesh Fabric - Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store
Rosebud Embroidered Mesh Fabric- Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store
Teal and Gold Nylon Tulle Fabric- Alforal

Prince Theme Baby Shower

The possibilities are endless with cardboard, tape and paper 😉  (The almost finished product) 

Gender Reveal BaByQ theme

The mother-to-be's dad is a barber and her mother is a wonderful hairstylist (I know from first hand experience).  So the theme to the reveal party: Barber shop or Beauty shop? Clippers or Combs? 
My friend/hairstylist Kisha is always coming up with out-of-the-world (way beyond the box) themes for parties so I had to come through with her vision. You don't wanna even know what her first theme was gonna be 😣.

Hollywood Sweet 16!

I love any party theme but the Hollywood theme gets a little more love because you can be as glamorous as you want. 
I was tasked with making the rep carpet stanchions and "velvet" ropes and a mini step repeat background for a Sweet 16.  For the stanchions: concrete, small pie pans for the molds, PCV pipe, caps and sleeves (they might not be called that but you get the point), glitter tape, glitter sealer (it is a must trust me), 7/8" gold cup hooks and a drill to make the holes.
For the "velvet" ropes: installation tubes, fleece fabric, red ribbon, and plenty of hot glue 😉



Necklace holder

Don't stash your wearable art in a drawer or in a armoire where it can't be seen, display it. If your like my friend that I made this for and have tons of necklaces this would be perfect for you. It's wall decor that's functional because it holds your beautiful jewelry, decorates your wall and is a shelf as well.

Laundry room decor

I swear that two socks go into the dirty clothes hamper then the washing machine and then the dryer but when it comes time to match them and put them away one is missing. This is one of life's many mysteries. At least this is a cute way to display the separated sock until it is reunited with its mate (hopefully):
