I won't lie - I love to make menus. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm a foodie and I love to see what everyone is serving at their wedding. I love to see regional foods. I love to see interesting cake flavors.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Menus can be an overlooked reception item, but you'll really get a bang for your buck with this one. It's a little detail that will make your guests feel loved and cared for. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And they are so quick and easy! I keep 6 different paper colors on hand to print them on the quick, so if you're running behind, I've got you covered. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the final weeks before your wedding, don't stress yourself out. Pass this one over to me and all you need to do is wait for the box to arrive. Don't stress out over one more DIY project!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

I'm not crying YOU are! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's World Down Syndrome Day and my forever friend Kelli with @letteredgrace, has the best post! Makes a girl proud to have such amazing friends!!!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I first met Laura through Creative Founders and we instantly connected before ever meeting in person. Last spring, we met for the first time at the Pensacola airport and we’ve been friends ever since! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve not only gotten to know Laura, but also her hubby and 4 boys through our regular FaceTime chats and virtual coffee dates. ☕️ If you chat with Laura, you’d hear how much she loves her family, her friends, and her work. You’d also quickly learn that she’s basically super woman. 💪🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She’s involved in her community, she’s involved at her kids’ school, she somehow makes time for dates with her hubs, working her business, and everything in between. You’d also discover that one of her sweet guys, Logan, has Down syndrome. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Laura would be the first to tell you that raising Logan has been different, but not different. He’s just as much silly and playful and loving and imaginative as his brothers. He’s still a little guy who needs love and encouragement and sometimes a different approach to learn something new. But whether it’s learning to walk, talk, or read...he’s up for the challenge - and he’s conquering them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Laura would be the first to tell you that being Logan’s mom is a blessing and she wouldn’t want him to be any different than the silly, sweet boy he is. She’d probably downplay how incredible she is for juggling all of her roles, but I guarantee you that she’s changing the narrative about Down syndrome by advocating for Logan - to be included, to be seen for who he is, and to make the world better for her differently-abled fella. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swipe right to see the kid I’m celebrating today! His sweet smile, FaceTime tours of his room and toys, and contagious joy stand out way more than one extra chromosome ever could! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here’s to you, Logan! You are so very loved! 💛"

Remember that post about RSVP dates from yesterday?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here's a major reason why you want to get those RSVPs in early. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Planning your seating chart takes so ... much ... time ... especially if you have to do it for 200 guests.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You'll want to give yourself plenty of time to arrange, rearrange and then move a few people again for that last minute guest.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

Let's talk about RSVP dates.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's a question I get asked a lot - when should I set my RSVP date? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ More often than not, it's just a date picked out of thin air, but it doesn't have to be. There's actually logic behind the date you choose!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ hop on over to the blog to read more and to download your free planning worksheet to help you out.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Pro tip on this Monday!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who should the RSVP envelope be addressed to?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Traditionally RSVPs will go back to the person who is doing the inviting. If your parents are hosting the wedding they would go to them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Practically though, my recommendation is to send them to the person that is planning the wedding - specifically someone who is super organized. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Never, ever, ever send them to multiple people - even if you have a 'his' and a 'hers' list - it's just easier and less confusing to send them all to one address for one person to keep track of. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy wedding planning!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

Music. Can we talk about music?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Music is my world. It's where I escape to. It's what I love. It's what I feel down to my soul. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have the opportunity once a year or so to play with @quincycommunitytheater down in the orchestra for a musical and I just can't get enough.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If I've been missing around here lately this is why! We open on Wednesday so I've been adding in a 3-4 hour rehearsal to every day for the last week or so and I'll keep that up through the rest of the month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yes I'm crazy, yes I know it's a ton of work, but holy cow you guys.

New to the store this week! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Brooke and Jordan's design combines some of my favorite elements.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The pocket here is one of those duplex papers we talked about earlier this week. {check out Wednesday's post or hop over to the blog for info!}. The outside is a shimmery almond, but the inside matte almond. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Flowers - you can't go wrong with a sprinkle of flowers on a design - ever.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And almond envelopes - can we pause on those? Almond is such great, underused color. It adds an interesting element to the design, but isn't anything crazy. Just a touch of color.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ OK - love love love this design. Hop on over to the website for more info on how you can make this uniquely yours for your wedding day!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

Words to live by right there. This is what I thrive in.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Officially I have a masters degree in biomedical engineering. So that means that by training I live life with a very clear path:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1. always think 5 steps ahead and solve every problem before it ever has a chance of surfacing⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2. when a problem comes up, fix it, fix it well, fix it fast and never let it happen again.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My husband looks at me like I have 2 heads sometimes, but this is my life in a nutshell. I'm always fixing things or anticipating the need for a fix before it's even necessary.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yes, it probably means I have a lot of unnecessary anxiety in my life, but as a business owner it means that I'm a master problem solver.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You want a totally different look to a design? Yes, let's figure that out!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You're running behind and you need invitations yesterday? Got you covered there - I know just the people that can get me things on the quick.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You're overwhelmed and even know where to start? I've got you there too - I'll take your starter ideas and give you 2 or 3 design proposals and we'll start working through what you love and what you don't until we get to just the right bits and pieces.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can take the girl officially out of engineering, but you'll never take the engineer out of her⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

Don't be afraid to think outside of the box for your wedding! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ People like me - we're crafty. We're not afraid of trying something that we've never done before. We did these place cards for the bridal party of Brooke and Jordan's wedding.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They took me beyond what I thought I could do. This girl got out a paint brush and hand painted each one. Then I took gold leaf and applied it around the edges.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The overall look was unique and organic. No two cards were the same and they were so much more than just a boring printed card.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not everything at your wedding needs special, but a few touches like this can really go a long way!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .

If you could be anywhere right now it would be ________ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ready GO! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My answer - water. I'd be anywhere near water - a lake, a river, the ocean. I love, love LOVE the sound of water near by. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fun fact - there are a lot of reasons why our house is perfect for us, but one of the big selling points was a lovely little fish pond complete with a small waterfall right outside our bedroom window. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Come on spring- let me get those widows open again! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So I want to know - where would you be???? . . . . .

Here's a quick stat for you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Local weddings are about 5% of my business. That's it. The rest of y'all are all over the country - east coast, west coast, a large number in Texas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So it's rare that I connect with other vendors in the wedding or even see what the big day looked like. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The biggest win for me is when I get to partner up with @lavishfloraldesign on a local wedding. Lavish and I have connected office space and yes - it's dreamy sharing work space with a florist. It smells amazing! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sneak peak here of Brooke and Jordan's suite with their flowers! I borrowed a few for a quick photo shoot before they ended up on their wedding cake! . . . . . .

Fresh up on the blog today! {link in profile} ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Today we are talking about unexpected paper choices for your wedding invitations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Duplexed papers - it's a fancy way of saying that the front of the paper is a different color than the back. The paper mill glues two pieces together, which can create some unexpected pieces for your invitations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My favorite way to use them are in pockets - think shimmery on the outside, but matte on the inside ... or brilliant gold on the outside, but sleek and sophisticated matte taupe on the inside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Hop on over to the blog to see more of these papers in action. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ OR as a bonus - purchase a sample invitation! You'll get a special welcome packet that features my favorite pale blue duplex pocket! . . . . .
