A cold and cozy outdoor engagement

This cute couple loves the outdoors-so naturally they choose to brave the cold and have outdoor engagement pictures.

I just adore those cute moss covered letters, created by the bride-to-be.

Budget Friendly Dessert Tables!

Here are some tips for creating your own DIY dessert table for $50 or less!

Whether you are hosting a small backyard wedding, or a cute and intimate bridal shower creating your own budget friendly dessert table can be a snap! Jen and McKenzie created this spread for a little under $50 by using boxed mixes, candy and sodas from a bulk discount grocery store (like Sam’s club or Costco) and they even used a Ziploc baggie with the corner cut off to pipe ready-made frosting onto their cupcakes-genius!

They also suggest using plates or serving bowls you already have, or borrow from friends, or purchasing a few from a second hand/thrift store. To add that special little touch they used one of their parents cake toppers-adorable and such a sweet sentimental detail.

Thanks so much to Jen and McKenzie of We Heart Bliss for sharing these cute ideas and photos with us!

We set a date!

(photo credit.XO)

Soooo… we finally nailed down a wedding date and all our locations! I’m so excited. We chose the Savoy Ballroom for the reception. It’s right across the street from my shop. Here’s a photo…

It’s so pretty! It was my first (and only) reception venue choice so I’m so happy! The rehearsal dinner is also going to be in an extra special location near Red Velvet and our wedding ceremony will be two stories above our shop…. on the magical third floor of our building. We had to get special permission and there is a lot of D.I.Y. detailing that is going to go into the set up, but it has a beautiful lofty old building feel. You can see a tiny section of the room in these pics. I’m so happy it’s working out to have the entire event on Commercial Street.

Anywhoooo…. Sunday, May 15th! I’ll share our Save-The-Date cards soon. Have a very merry Christmas! XO, elsie
