Martinelli Vintage Wedding Favors

30th May 2013

 I can’t tell you how excited I was to find a four pack of these little Martinelli apple juice bottles at my local Walmart. They are 10oz glass bottles and are absolutely adorable! I think they’d make a lovely little wedding or shower favor. They’ve been sitting in my pantry for a while so this morning while taking pictures of my Peach Mason Jar Wedding Invites, I printed some matching {Read more...}

13th May 2013

I recently had the privilege of designing a bridal shower suite for a return customer, based on my vintage seed packet style invites, this time featuring pretty Poppies.  I absolutely love the idea of a “Love Is in Bloom” theme – it always reminds me of one of my favorite Alabama songs! “Wildflowers and love is in bloom We’ll have a hometown honeymoon just me and you…“ So lovely!

Hydrangeas Bridal or Baby Shower

19th Mar 2013

There are certain plants that just have a natural association with the South: especially hydrangeas. They remind me of summertime and front porches and a by-gone era.  These big, puffy, blooms in shades of white, pink and blue are delicate and beautiful.   Perfect for a wedding, bridal shower or baby shower, perhaps with a Love Is In Bloom or a Baby is Blooming theme?  In addition to invites, recipe {Read more...}

Mason Jar Invites

25th Feb 2013

It’s no secret that I absolutely adore mason jars.  I use them for drinking glasses, for vases, for storing my dry baking ingredients and planting herbs.  They were the centerpieces at my wedding reception, filled with wheat and wildflowers and accented with half-pint candles.  So maybe I went a little overboard with my mason jar invite designs in the Sunnyside Print & Party Shop. I love each and every one {Read more...}

This is actually the second time I have made this with my little guy. The first time we used cookie cutters and cupcake {Read more...}

It’s become a tradition in our home that on Sunday mornings I make homemade waffles.

I have tried a number of waffle recipes and these from Martha Stewart are by far our favorite. I usually halve the recipe below, and in my round Bella Rotating waffle maker {Read more...}
