Vendor Love | Blossom Events


I recently worked with Blossom Events creating a number of different stationary items for a 'Starbucks Themed Photoshoot' that they spearheaded. They worked with various vendors commissioning them to bring their vision of a cozy cafe wedding to life. The shoot was featured on The Wedding Chicks blog and has received great feedback from the site's readers.

Blossom Events
is a Toronto based private and corporate event planning company and, as evident in the Starbucks theme Wedding Shoot, they do an amazing job of pulling together all of the details to make a spectacular event including: Location, theme, styling, decor, stationary, food, drink and merriment!

Another stunning stylized shoot that Blossom Events recently put together was a Ballerina / Swan Lake Inspired Shoot that was featured on Wedding Obsession. Again, their mastery for creating an environment that is fully immersed in the theme and style of the event shines through these images.

As a vendor I can say that working with them was a great experience. You can tell that they are very organized, passionate and driven as I received fast responses and clear communication throughout the process.

If you are getting married or have an upcoming event in the GTA I would definitely recommend checking them out.

Custom Straw Flags |

One of my newest ETSY items are these Print-It-Yourself Custom Straw Flags.

You Choose the font and colours to ensure that they match your wedding or event perfectly!

I design your flags and send you a digital file with multiple flags on one sheet making printing quick and easy. You simply print as many as you need, cut them out and attach them to your straws.

It makes for a simple DIY project that will wow your guests!

These flags are DOUBLE SIDED so you can choose to write your names with a heart on one side and your wedding date or maybe a word like 'Cheers' or 'Celebrate' on the other side.

DIY Wedding Initials |


One of my favorite decorations at our rustic barn wedding reception (that took place in 'The Big Barn' at Balls Falls Conversvation Area) was the wooden initials that my dad made that were hung on the barn door behind the head table.

HOW WE MADE IT:

- My Dad made them out of melimine board
- He then crackle painted them.
- I choose 'Pointedly Mad' as my font and I made the initial to actual size (Each letter was 2.5ft high) and my dad printed the initials large scale on a plot printer.
- He then used the cut out paper initals as the template for cutting them out of wood.
- He used two strips of wood on the back of the initials to hold them together as one piece
- We hung them with rope that was stapeled to the back of the initials
- The middle initial is the first letter our last name and the two outside initials are the first letters of our first names.

HOW IT LOOKED AT OUR RECEPTION:

All of the guests commented afterward how much they loved the initials - it was a simple project with a big impact.

Collage of Our Engagement Photos:
I finally put together a collage of our own engagement photos. I am always making them for other couples but never us. I am thinking about getting it custom framed (when frame go half price at Michales) and then doing the same square format of our wedding photos. They will be nice custom pieces for on the wall at home and I like that you can show multiple photos at once (instead of choosing just one!)

My friend Jenn took this photo for us and I thought it would be great to make it into a poster! Great for an online 'Save the Date' or can be used for a 'Jack and Jill' invitation/Poster!
