Ring Pop Party Favors – DIY

One of my best girlfriend’s was in town from New York a few weeks ago and completely unaware of a top-secret bachelorette party myself and the rest of the girls from her wedding party had been planning! We prepared for her final fling over the course of a few weeks and the entire night couldn’t have turned out better! Many personalized details were added to celebrate the Mrs to be, which included the Ring Pop party favors I made for all of the girls that attended. You may remember this sweet candy bling the most from days of your childhood, but they’ve recently become quite trendy for wedding gifts, bridesmaid invitations and party favors.

As you will see below, they easily transform from childhood treat into the perfect party favor or parting gift. Even better, they’re simple to create and affordable too!

DIY Ring Pop Party Favors

Supplies

Ring pops in your choice of color.

Showcase packaging containers which can be found in my Etsy shop.

Ribbon of choice cut into 8 inch pieces.

Small cellophane bags.

8 inch pieces of bakers twine.

labels for the top of each container (optional).

mini paper clips (+ glitter and glue).

paper name tags (these can be handmade in Word or Photoshop, or even store-bought)

Instructions

Remove ring pops from packaging.

Open each showcase container and insert ring pop on an angle until secured.

Seal by placing the lid back on the bottom.

Wrap 8 inch piece of ribbon around the bottom portion of the showcase container where the black lid, meets the acrylic container.

Next, place one label in the top center of each container. I made mine specifically using the verbiage “he put a ring on it” with a few extra embellishments to emulate the bling.

After you’ve placed the ring pop in the container, wrapped in ribbon and labeled, insert each Ring Pop container into 1 small cellophane bag.

Tie the cellophane wrapped candy gift with one piece of bakers twine in your choice of color.

Write or print a name on each name tag, then hole punch (if not already done) and tie to each piece of bakers twine.

Finish with one glittered mini clothespin (optional).

To create the mini glittered clothespins, simply paint the full top side of each clothespin with craft glue, and dredge in colored glitter of your choice. Allow an hour to dry.

The favors for my girlfriend’s celebration were personalized to match the color scheme of her upcoming Summer Wedding. She has chosen shades of navy and grey, so I made sure to incorporate those details into the final packaging.

These certainly added a special touch of posh to our evening and didn’t disappoint! Can’t wait until I have the chance to make them again!

Thanks for reading as always! I have a busy few weeks coming up with my brother’s wedding Easter weekend and family in town, but hoping to squeeze in one more post before then!

Check back again soon!

Red Rose Bridal Bouquet

This summer I had the pleasure of creating the floral arrangements for a local wedding in my home town. The bride chose a color scheme of red and white and selected roses and stargazer lilies for her bridal bouquet. Diamond accents and white satin ribbon were added for the final touches.

Here are a few shots of her bouquet.

Congrats to the bride and groom!

Flowers in Bloom

This has been quite a busy week for me and with little time to photograph my projects I put Instagram to use to capture a few shots of the gorgeous flowers I’m designing for a wedding this weekend. Here’s a little glimpse.

The brides bouquet will consist of these romantic red roses.

Glamorous Glitter Clothespins ~ DIY

What’s the first thought that comes to your mind when you think of clothespins? For me it’s laundry or a clothesline, yet after gaining some inspiration on Pinterest, I found some alternative uses much more exciting than laundry. Just add a little glitter and viola! You now have a glamorous version perfect for weddings, bridal or baby shower games, favors, gifts and celebration decor.

Today I made some for my upcoming vintage-glam baby shower using gold and white glitter. They turned out adorable and all you need are the following 3 supplies to make your own:

1. Glitter in colors of your choice.

2. Double stick tape.

3. Wood clothespins.

A pair of Scissors and scrap paper.

Instructions~

Apply a piece of double-stick tape to one side of the clothespin.

Using a pair of sharp scissors, trim the excess tape from the pin.

Place the clothespin on a piece of scrap paper (sticky side up) and pour glitter over top, covering completely.

Once applied. Press glitter down with fingers and shake off any excess.

Repeat these simple steps to make additional clothespins.

Note ~ I prefer to use Martha Stewart crafts, but you could use any supplies of your choice and I’m sure they’d turn out just as great!

Sunshine Yellow & Gray ~ Baby Shower Inspiration

The due date of my 2nd daughter is fast approaching and I have many projects to accomplish before her May 2nd arrival. A few of my largest tasks consist of designing her nursery and creating items for my upcoming baby shower. Although I am not planning the baby shower in it’s entirety on my own, I tend to be a bit of a control freak so I have more of a hand in the planning process than I probably should. Call me crazy but preggers or not, I absolutely love being involved. I always find an excuse to throw a party so there was no way that I’d be staying out of this one. I must however mention how fortunate I am to have a few special people in my life who will be helping plan and are also willing to put up with me and my obsessive demands for perfection.

The color scheme we decided on for the baby’s nursery is yellow and gray. I drew my inspiration for these colors from the Season of Spring that my daughter will be born in. There is something so bright, cheery and joyous about yellow that warms me like a sunny afternoon. The gray adds in a modern twist, and together they offer the touch of posh that I live for.

I fell in love with the combination of yellow and gray so much so, that I’ve decided to use that color scheme for my baby shower as well. I will be pairing these hues with some of my favorite textiles, decor and delicious treats, which together will embody my vision for a Vintage-Chic celebration with modern and posh touches. I currently live for gated trellis prints & ornate chalkboards. Lanterns, paper straws, mason jars & milk glass will add in the vintage touch I am looking for and the french macarons, and other sweet treats are favorites of mine that would look beautiful on any dessert table.

I couldn’t be more excited about these colors and just love how versatile they are together. Yellow and gray can be both masculine and feminine and would look stunning in a wedding, home interiors, fashions or as the backdrop for any cheerful celebration.

Elegantly wed in British Columbia

I recently had the the honor of preparing floral arrangements and table decor for a beautiful wedding that took place in British Columbia. My objective: to create designs with posh and lavish appeal on a modest budget. This is always a favorite task of mine. Fresh flowers play such an important role in any wedding or celebration and I believe that even with a modest budget, the simplest of arrangements can add a special element to any event.

All of the designs for this wedding were inspired by the bride’s vision of elegance and romance, along with her color scheme of tiffany blue, violet and white. Here are a few of the techniques that allowed me to create the posh floral arrangements and centerpieces, which are further reflected in the beautiful imagery below.

All florals were DIY.

I ordered them through a local wholesale grocer as well as online for overall better pricing.

I chose in season blooms that wouldn’t need to be shipped from out of the Country.

Vases were borrowed and purchased at discounted stores.

The bride opted for simple and less intricate floral designs as well as large blooms such as hydrangea, that didn’t require a lot of reworking.

Using hydrangeas allowed me the ability to create simple and modern bouquets with only a few stems per bouquet, thus allowing more flowers available for the remaining arrangements.

Lastly,  I mixed and matched the reception decor, using a variety of flower arrangements in different sizes on half of the guest tables, while using candle centerpieces on the others.

Ceremony florals were simple and chic in a mix of all white hydrangeas and roses.

I used all white roses for the bride’s dome shaped bouquet, adding in some diamond accents for a touch of posh glam.

The bride’s bouquet stems were wrapped in tiffany blue satin ribbon, adorned with pearl studded pins and an image of her late Father.

Bridesmaids carried simple yet elegant bouquets of white hydrangea with touches of violet statice. Stems were wrapped in violet satin ribbon.

Another shot of the gorgeous bridal bouquets made of white roses, white hydreangea and violet statice. I removed all greenery and leaves to add a modern touch and my signature style to all floral arrangements.

The groom’s boutonniere was made of a single stem white rose, white snapdragons and a sprig of violet statice, adorned with a chrome wire wrap for the final touch.

Groomsmen’s boutonnieres were created using white hydrangea, white snapdragons and a sprig of violet statice, wrapped in black floral adhesive.

Candle centerpieces were hand detailed with diamond studs and violet ribbon with diamond buckle detail. Diamond cut table scatter finished off the look.

Elegant white roses and hydrangeas made for gorgeous mix and match centerpieces.

Billowy white hydrangea, white rose, violet statice and snapdragon centerpieces helped set the tone for the evening, which couldn’t have been more beautiful or elegant for that matter.

Color me Turquoise

With over the foot of snow that I currently have outside my window, I am craving color!! Spring, Summer and Wedding Season are nearing so what better way to gain inspiration for each, then by vivid hues that remind me of warmth and celebration on these cold Winter days! This mood board is a reflection of just that!

Turquoise is a life-long favorite hue of mine. Pair it with purple and you truly have a match made in heaven. Both along with seashell remind me of beachy days and extended Summer nights. This color scheme would be the perfect accompaniment to a quaint back-yard affair. Perhaps a glamourous pool party with chic attention to detail and of course, modern textiles. I have been officially transported!!

Coco Chanel Inspirations

This elegant and classy wedding inspiration board, was created based on my own love for Chanel’s signature and beautiful handbags.

Picture an opulent event overflowing with Camelias and Anenome, also featuring a black and white color scheme with pink accents, similar to the interior of my favorite Chanel Tote. A modern yet everlasting twist on bridal party fashions and reception decor would make for a memorable celebration, just as stunning as each Chanel Design.

I know this concept has been seen over and over again, but it’s considered timeless, in my book.

I’m. in. heaven!!!
