Store bought note cards turned custom invitations!

Don't want to spend the $$ on a custom invitation design? Well don't! You can achieve a custom look without the custom price tag. I purchased these blank note cards from Target printed and embellished them myself with ribbon and pieces of Cinnamon. Just add ribbon or elements that reflects the theme of your party and WHA-LA.. a store bought note card turned custom invitation for less!

09 Dining Spaces Competition-Cosmopolitan Glam

Last night I participated in the 2009 Dining Spaces Competition. I teamed up with Opulent Creations Events, LLC to create a table design with vintage charm and modern Flair. With a fuchsia and navy color palette, it's glamorous, fun, festive, and very bold! We call it Cosmopolitan Glam. Though we didn't win, we sure did have a great time. The competition was fierce! There are some really creative people out there. I have lots of eye candy to share.
First up, our table..

Can you tell this was our table?

Love is Paradise

Love is certainly "sweet" but even sweeter when you are getting married on a Caribbean island. I recently created a candy buffet for a bridal shower. The bride is having a destination wedding, and her bridesmaids created a tropical pink and green Paradise themed bridal shower for her.
