Hello, I feel like its been ages since I’ve last posted. Things have been crazy busy over here and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I just got back from San Diego for a Brides Against Breast Cancer show. This cause has really been ramping up with shows in the Southern California area. We have several others coming up in the Los Angeles Area. It’s always great to meet so many wonderful vendors, volunteers, brides and often breast cancer survivors. I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything in the world.
Next I completed silk flowers for a client in Illinois. Her color scheme was turquoise and white and I had so much fun creating these for her special day.
I also got to plan a 60th birthday party and the theme was Cooking because the guest of honor loves to cook. We started off by asking all the guest to prepare a small dish within one of the four categories which were Appetizers, Salad, Main Entrée, and Desserts. When the guest arrived, they were greeted with a sign that said Mitchell’s restaurant, named after the guest of honor.
Next I created menus for each guest that highlighted each of the items the guest chefs prepared for the contest.
We had chef hats for each person and provided them with white dishes to plate their food to be judged.
There were trophies awarded in each category. Each dish was judged on presentation and taste.
Lastly I created all of the paper goods in red and white diagonals to give it a cooking flare.
Also check out this cute little napkin holder I found to add to the décor.
I had so much fun working on these things. I’ve also been working on my custom journal collection which I’ll be sharing with you on Monday. I hope you have a great weekend.
