anna be: five, part 1

21 Jun

Playing dress up is fun, especially when it’s a birthday party in the wedding industry!

One of Denver’s most fabulous bridal boutique’s, Anna Be, celebrated it’s 5th birthday 1920’s style. Hands down, Anna Be: Five was one of the most fabulous wedding events we’ve been to. Guests filled Denver’s Mile High Station wearing flapper gowns, boas, feathers and red lipstick {well, the ladies did!}. Amazing wedding vendors created their own party inside tents along the brick walls of the party area.

I’m telling you, it was every girl’s wedding dreamland. At every corner, there was extravagant flower arrangements, table settings and unbelievable lighting. Hors d’oeurves and champagne were passed while funky music played all night long.

I’m so excited to share these event photos from Jenna Walker Photographers.
Cheers to inspiration, creativity and, of course, wedding season!

ps stay tuned for part 2 glam pics

diy tissue flowers

24 May

Spring showers bring May flowers … so it also brings tissue paper and tape 🙂

These DIY paper flowers are such a unique {and cheap!} diy project that brightens up your window display. We used for our window display at Fleur de Lis, a paperie, but these would be adorable decorations for a spring garden party, backdrop to a dessert table or for your home.

Visit Design Sponge for detailed ‘how to’ instructions.

brown paper flowers for easter

29 Mar

What did I do with a couple free hours {nap time}, brown paper bags, easter eggs and inspiration from The Nate Berkus Show?

Brown paper flowers for easter, of course.

This might be the cheapest project I’ve ever done – the eggs were .50 cents, and I already had brown paper bags and hot glue. My husband would say the word ‘cheap’ is not in my vocabulary, but after this project I beg to differ.

The creator of this simple and adorable project {that can be used for holidays, or even decor for birthday parties} is Destiny from A Place For Us. She created them for her mantle, and has a wonderful tutorial on how to make the flowers.

I followed her tutorial, then made the flowers Easter-friendly by gluing one side of a plastic easter egg to the center of the flower.

Step 1:
Draw and cut out a leaf template or find one online. I used three different sized leaf templates, small, medium and large.

Step 2:
Trace your leaf template onto brown paper bags. I used about 20 bags for this project.

Step 3:
Fold each leaf length-wise so it will help create a multi-dimensional effect when displayed.

Step 4:
Start with the largest size leaf, and begin to glue {I used a hot glue gun} each leaf on top of one another in the same central point. Continue to glue leaves on your flower, layering the large leaves, then the medium-sized leaves, finishing with the small leaves.

Step 5:
Cut one side of a plastic egg and glue to the middle of the flower.

Step 6:
Add tape to the back and find the perfect spot to display in your home.
