Princess boxes

I love, love, love  paper mache!  Paint, decoupage, many possibilities. 

These were made for my adorable little cousin Ananiah.  Her birthday was a Disney Princess theme and I use the boxes as the centerpiece. (only one pic from the party - idk what happened to that memory card...)

  • 2 paper mache round boxes (medium and large)
  • Disney Princess scrapbook paper
  • Disney Princess stickers
  • Princess ribbon
  • Paint (purple, pink and yellow) 
  • "Princess" wood word (Michael's)
  • diamond accent 
  • initial letter (Michael's dollar bin)
Additional views:

  • prepare paper mache with sealer and let dry (not necessary but recommended)
  • paint boxes inside and out (if covering with paper you can paint just the part that will be seen to save time and paint)
  • adhere scrapbook paper to boxes and ribbons to rim of tops (permanent tape runner was used and worked very well , liquid adhesive will sometimes warp paper)
  • use strong glue to adhere wood Princess word with diamond accent and initial letter
  • apply stickers

Lucky in Love 💛

Its always an honor to be apart of any event or someone's special day, but a wedding has an unique place in my heart. A couple's biggest day, the celebration, all the preparation and money that goes into making sure that it's their version of perfect and it goes on without a hitch. That is where I come in for this Lucky in Love couple. When Cyndi came to me about decorating I was all in before she could finish asking me to be their wedding decorator. This was the first wedding that I had more than just tablescapes to execute. I was in charge of crafting a picture frame photo prop, sweetheart table initials, flower girl basket. a bouquet with bling and boutonniere with style to match both Brides' personality 😉.

The color scheme of gray, shades of yellow and a touch of sparkle were perfect for this 7-7-17 summer wedding. Cue the pictures:

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 😉
