Princess boxes

I love, love, love  paper mache!  Paint, decoupage, glitter....so 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...)



Materials:
  • 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)

Directions:
  • 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

Sleeping On Clouds (Baby Photography)

There is nothing sweeter or more angelic than a sleeping baby. When my son was a baby I could stare at him for the longest time just admiring his little features and waiting for him to smile on his sleep.
Little Miss A'Niya Mecole inspired me to make this scene to photograph her sleeping so angelically.
I used her changing table and most materials were purchased from my favorite store Hobby Lobby: the sky background (bulletin paper), fabrics, flowers, and clouds (pillow stuffing). 






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:








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).
