Niah's Fairy Princess outfit

My little cousin is like every other little girl and loves to dress up and pretend to be a ballerina, princess, or fairy. She had the typical princess outfit but was missing the fairy/ballerina outfit.

There are tons of tutorials in the internet and YouTube on how to make a tutu. Simple and easy to make and the possibilities are endless. 

•Tulle (fuchsia and lime)  - I found mine in the wedding section at Michael's ($3/spool), plenty of colors to choose form. You can also buy it on the bolt and cut into strips, but I like simple so I bought the spool because all I had to do was cut the right length. 

• Elastic band - measure waist and sew 2" smaller

Cut 24" strips of tulle and fold in half. Make loop and place behind the elastic band. Pull ends of tulle through loop and pull tight. You can make tie into a knot if you wish.

The wand: 

• wooden dowel painted pink
• butterfly from the floral section at Hobby Lobby
• ribbon tied under the butterfly to add a whimsical touch.

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:

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). 

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 😣.
