I don't even know where to begin to talk about the lovely ladies of Soiree. They've been so supportive of me, ever since I first went into business. More than anyone else, they'll call and say "Can you write on...?" and come up with some cool new thing. Molli is the fairy godmother of the chalk board menus, an idea that came about when she did a TV shoot on Eco-Friendly Weddings. The chalk boards are a wonderful idea on so many levels!
This summer was no exception - a client of theirs had a magazine photo, she wanted these quilled hearts replicated. They were so cute! When I talked to Molli about her Countryside Villa, I asked her if she'd like more hearts. (When I got the paper for the first job I bought a ream of paper and had the whole thing cut - I just did the math, that means there were 7000 strips, I've probably used about 200. You like these hearts? Let's talk!
These make darling (IMHO) place cards. (Mary is my new sister-in-law, hi Mary!)
Here's how they look on the table...
I enabled the pop up on this photo so you can see the all the gorgeous detail on this tablescape, put together by Soiree and Crystal Lilies.
One other thing that I did earlier this summer made an appearance in the Countryside Villa room - tags!!
The tags attached to the little pear say "Eat Drink Dance" - wiser words were never spoken! I used these tags for the Rustic client from earlier this summer (a million thanks to Crystal Lilies for sending the bride my way, there's more to come on that wedding in the next few weeks) - and that has started a new obsession for me - TAGS!! All sorts of tags. I want to put tags on everything (the cats are not amused.) Keep an eye out for more tags in the future!
