French memo board

Oooh lala is what I was thinking when I made this French inspired memo board.  Black and white damask fabric with pink ribbon. This was my first memo board and it came out great! Although I wish I could have found little Eiffel Tower brads or pins to go over the black decorative brads.... the search continues (lol).

This project is simple and easy to make. By changing the fabric, color, size of board, ribbon, or brads you can customize this project to fit your specific needs.

Damask fabric: $4
Ultra fine batting - $5 (I only used about 1/4 of the package)
12x24 wood board: $4
Pink ribbon - $1
Decorative brads - $1

other materials already on hand: staple gun, centering ruler and yard stick (measure and space ribbon diamonds), and hammer for the brads.

If you make one or are inspired by my post/project please leave a comment or post a picture!

Lucky in Love πŸ’›

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 πŸ˜‰.

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 πŸ˜‰
