if you haven't seen it yet, yesterday BBE was featured for our design contributions to the ever so fabulous Kacee Geoffroy's baby shower for sa deuxième fille {her second little girl}... just a little of my high school french skills for you! =)

anyhow, i was so thrilled to see that the shower was featured yesterday over at one of our FAVORITE event hosting blogs - Hostess with the Mostess... thanks Jenn!

kudos go out to all the other wonderful vendors who worked on Kacee's shower, the vision really was pulled together beautifully and seamlessly by everyone, and of course Alice Hu Photography's images made the event look picture perfect!

feeling so blessed to have been apart of Kacee's special party!

{the wedding pantry} valentines windows

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentines, I know I really enjoyed ours especially after how crazy the past few weeks have been!  this post was originally posted on my JDV blog, i had featured it before Valentines over there... so just in case you missed it or don't follow my other blog, here's how the displays turned out!

this month i had the opportunity to style the windows of a local bridal shop: the wedding panty... and it just so happened that i was able to incorporate my sister business' recent valentines diy printable files into the designs {with a little customized tweaking}. if you're in need of some quick, easy and cute shower  decor, check out these printables, they can easily be customized for a bridal or baby shower... and without further ado,  i think the images pretty much speak for themselves, enjoy the colorful eye candy!
{printable cupcake toppers} find them in my shop here

 They can be customized too... like this cake topper that says la-la-love!
Isn't this cake from Jay's cute?!

Again, the flags are customized as dessert tags letting guests know in a cohesive way what the item is

More custom dessert tags...

I crafted two interlocking paper heart chains to swag behind the hutch that houses the dessert display, and thanks to my fab intern Chelsea for helping me hang it!

 In love with the perfectly matching aqua colored french macarons
{thanks Jay's}

In the other window I created a "love note" station with three types of little love notes, 
which are a fun alternative to a guest book

Here's a close up of the coordinated bridal sash to match the style and colors of the widow displays, 
i/my sister biz {JDV} can customize materials to ensure your vision is tied throughout your look too!

The ball jars tied in perfectly color-wise... 
I also crafted these coffee filter puffs and adorned some with aqua gliter, so worth it!

Close up of the glitered clothespins holding the custom "love notes" banner
which you can find in my shop as the "be mine" printable banner.... looove glitter!

Love notes window
...recongnize that little white desk? =)

custom vinyls from Wonderfully Wordy added a special touch!
"All you need is love..."

"... Love is all you need"

I'll have more diy printables coming soon to my etsy paperie shop! and please let me know if you'd like some created custom for a special event!

{sneak peek} window display at the Wedding Pantry

Hi everyone... and happy February!  Valentines is quickly approaching and I thought I'd give you a sneak peek at one of the big projects I was working on last week...

I did a February window display for Eva at her bridal shop, The Wedding Pantry!  Since Valentine's and love is in the air this month, I thought I'd give you a quick glimpse of the windows.  Eva showed {part 1} of the windows today on her blog, so go check it out! and she'll be posting part 2 tomorrow... such a fun project.  I can't wait to share more of the details and the sweets from Jay's Catering with you!
