think pink!


Last week we participated in Voila! – a new bridal show concept – at the Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland. Each event space at the Woodmark was transformed into a particular season and was loaded with inspiration and ideas. We participated in the Spring-themed room along with Woodland Flowers, Make a Scene Party Rentals, Buchanan Chocolates, BBJ Linens, La Belle Reve, Azzura Photography, Butler Valet, Coat Check Complete, Bugsie Productions, My Flawless Tan, and AA Party Rentals.


To correspond with the bright and springlike color palette of pink, pink, and more pink, we created lovebird menus, placecard flags, favor tags, and table numbers. The addition of Sofia Blanc de Blanc cans of sparkling wine added a whimsical touch, while the custom truffle favors (created by Buchanan Chocolates) added a yummy pop of interest to the table.


Special thanks to BreeAnn of Pink Blossom Events and Marcia and Diana of Panache Events for planning the event and to Tania of Azzura Photography for providing these photos!

weddings in woodinville


In January, we participated in Weddings in Woodinville, a new bridal show that showcased 6 of Woodinville’s finest venues and over 60 bridal vendors. Guests were transported between venues via luxury transportation and were able to enjoy wine tasting and delicious small bites at each location.



We were delighted to be invited to show at DeLille Cellars along with a stellar group of vendors including Event Success, Rented Elegance and Design, Joann Arruda, Creme de la Creme Cakes, City Catering, La Votre Bridal Couture, and others!



Jacky Grotle of Event Success invited us to collaborate with her and others on a banquet table – we created custom cut menus, place cards, favor tags, and a table number (a custom cut wine label) for the event table set up at DeLille. Jacky put together beautiful favors (wine keys and delicious salted caramels) accented by delicate orchid blooms.

More information about Weddings in Woodinville (and the dates for the 2011 event) can be found at All photos provided by Joann Arruda (thanks Joann!)

pink and gray


One of my favorite parts of the Seattle Wedding Show this year was collaborating with Woodland Flowers on paper products for their tabletop display in their booth. This year their booth was draped in gorgeous shades of gray, creating a rich ombre backdrop. The floral was spectacular shades of pinks with touches of natural grays. We created menus, placecards, and a table number for their display in shades of gray and bright white, accented by Swarovski crystals.


Woodland Flowers shared the booth with La Votre Bridal Couture (formerly The Bridal Garden) and the dresses and flowers complemented each other perfectly.

The booth was beautifully captured by Tania from Azzura Photography – head over to their blog for highlights from the show, including more booth photos and a fashion show recap!

2009 real wedding :: missy and garrett {part 2}


Yesterday we shared the save the dates and invitations from Missy and Garrett’s late summer wedding – now, here are some of the details from their wedding day. First of all, check out the amazing weather – sunny, warm, and gorgeous blue sky (which is nothing to sneeze at here in the Pacific Northwest).


The sunny details were put together by Missy’s amazing team of professionals: wedding coordination was by Keri Cooper from Bliss Events, styling and floral design were by Collected Design. We worked closely with Missy to create programs, menus, escort cards, table numbers, and signage for the event. One of my favorite details from the day is the garden cart where they displayed the escort cards in grass. Beautiful!


Thank you so much to Abbi from Simply Photography for sharing these beautiful images from the wedding day and thank you to Missy and Garrett for letting us be a part of your planning process!

lovely hand-lettering


I’m loving these gorgeous hand-lettered pieces by Bryn of Brooklyn-based Paperfinger.



I especially love the custom return address stamps she offers – beautiful! This is a great alternative to return address printing / rsvp envelope printing.

autumn harvest tabletop


Stacy Kvam of SK Wedding and Event Design contacted us to collaborate with her on an autumn inspired tabletop design for the summer 2009 issue of Seattle Metropolitan Bride and Groom magazine. Using bright Washington red apples and an artisan chocolate menu as inspiration, she created a gorgeous vision of fall on this table. My favorite part is the centerpiece itself. Created by Brittany Flowers, it features an antique wooden tool carrier filled to the brim with autumn’s bounty – delicious and vibrant apples, miniature white pumpkins, greenery, and full cabbage leaves. 

To complement Stacy’s vision, we created fun leaf-shaped place cards printed on pieces of paper thin wood veneer sheets. We also created “bride” and “groom” chair signs with scalloped edges and gold grommets (also on that beautiful wood veneer!)

project in progress


It has been such a long time since I’ve shared any sneak peeks of our current work, so I thought I’d share a little goodness with you all today! This website is not complete yet, but we expect it to launch in the next two weeks (at which point you’ll all get to see more fabulousness!)

In the meantime though, I thought I’d share some snippets to whet your appetites – this website has been so much fun to work on and I can’t wait to share more! (Plus the client happens to be super fab, so we’ll share the details on her as well!)


12 too many

Attention, hostesses!

12 Too Many is a great new website from Sheena Kalso (also the Invisible Hostess and the brain behind Totally Tabletops). Here’s what it’s all about (in the words of Sheena and partner, Anna):

If you’ve just had a wedding or party that left you with “12 too many” vases, table runners, props, or other decor items, we can help you sell your stuff!

Selling? Fill out a “submit item” form and upon approval your listing will post for 2 weeks. Buying? Select the city you’re buying in and browse by category, color, or theme. You contact the seller and arrange pick up or delivery.

In a nutshell, 12 Too Many is a craigslist for all of you party planning peeps! Best of all? It’s free! It’s still fairly new, so not all cities are represented and they’re just starting to gain more of a following. If you don’t see your city, add it! And spread the word!
