So busy… sneak peek of posts to come!

So busy… sneak peek of posts to come!
I’ve been a very busy bee lately!
I usually spend a little time working on posts over the weekend and my day off (Tuesday)… but, this week I’ve not been able to do any of that! 
Over the weekend my hubby and I spent our time NESTING. 
We cleaned out our closets and took a trip to goodwill with many bags and boxes full of stuff. I didn’t even know we had that much STUFF. Makes me feel a little guilty. 
Well, our closets look LOADS better and my label maker was put to good use. Next weekend we’ll be putting the finishing touches on baby’s room and (HOPEFULLY)
do some deep cleaning in the house so I don’t have to worry about it before baby gets here.
The past two days I didn’t have a lot of time working on posts because a dear friend of mine is here from Oklahoma. We spent our time hanging out and reminiscing.
But, I do have a TON of posts that I want to be working on and bringing to you soon.
So, I thought I’d share a quick sneak peek of things to come!

Although, if you just can’t wait you can shimmy over to Hostess with the Mostess for her feature on the DIY projects that we created for this shoot.
{Mommy Monday Posts}
Photo by my very own Mommy who prepped a {Mommy Monday} post for us!
I have a LOT of fun {Mommy Monday} posts coming! 
If you like DIY projects that aren’t exactly party related then you will like some of these upcoming posts. There will be posts with projects for decorating the nursery, re-purposing (or upstyling) clothes to help save money and some fun summer projects to do with the kiddos. 
A robot painting I did for the nursery!
P.S. If you are a Mommy Blogger or a Blogger who is about to be a Mommy then I’d love to feature a guest post by you for the future {Mommy Monday} spots! 
{RECIPES}
 
Maybe it is the nesting, but I’ve been cooking and baking up a storm lately! 
So, I have a ton of fun recipes for you, including the Peanut Butter and Jelly cupcakes pictured above! Check back in over the next couple of weeks for recipes for cupcakes, dinners and an a ton of recipes that involve STRAWBERRIES! 
{REAL PARTIES}
I still need to post all about our Baby Shower and Beer before Baby parties! I was a silly blogger and didn’t take very many photos, but my friends were gracious enough to send me some of their photos…. so, I have some fun details to share with you! 
{GIVEAWAY}
What!?! Another giveaway so soon!?
I’m really excited to say that one of my favorite party supply stores has offered a
fun giveaway item to you! 
So, don’t forget to check back to see what it is and how you can win it!
  Well, thanks for checking in on the blog today…
I haven’t quite fell of the face of the universe. I am however prepping the blog for the moment when baby arrives and I do fall off the face of the universe for a moment. So, what type of posts would you like to see on the blog? 
And, if you are a blogger as well….
would you like to do a guest post!?! 

{CONCEPT SHOOT} Love in Blossom Pt. 2

{CONCEPT SHOOT} Love in Blossom Pt. 2
Can you tell I’m excited about this party concept? 
And, THE PHOTOS! 
I was thrilled when Aubrie LeGault from Capturing Grace Photography sent these photos to me
and I’ve been dying to show them to you ever since!
So, part one of the photos showed you my concept for a DIY, budget-friendly, Japanese-Inspired head table and bridal bouquet… now, for the DESSERT!
I love this picture of the cake table. The cherry blossom cake is surrounded by more white flowers, cherry blossom confetti and a Japanese tea set used for candle holders.
Just so  you know… that cake tasted as good as it looks!
What bride wouldn’t be happy with their own personal cupcake to enjoy!?!
Alicia, from The Sweet Smith blog, created a white cake with lemon filling and a delish butter cream frosting for the cake. She then topped the cake with molded chocolate cherry blossoms. You can find the recipe and DIY instructions on how to create the flowers over at Hostess with the Mostess!

{CONCEPT SHOOT} Love in Blossom Pt. 1

{CONCEPT SHOOT} Love in Blossom Pt. 1
Yesterday I posted the inspiration board for this concept shoot.
Today…
THE PHOTOS!
Again, I’m so excited to be able to share these photos with you because I got to work with fabulous people and we worked really hard on this shoot! I have so many pictures that I thought I’d divide them into two posts. This post features what I’d imagine the head table could look like for this wedding.
The beautiful photography was done by my friend, and Portland photographer,
Aubrie LeGault of Capturing Grace Photography.
So, with no further ado… the pics!
The lovely bride (model Joan Stevens) is showered in cherry blossom confetti as she looks out at tables adorned with cherry blossom branches, tea lights and small arrangements of white carnations.
Low arrangements make it easier for people to see across the table and allow for more intimate conversations.
For the table settings we played with a mixture of traditional Japanese plates and a more modern look with the wine glasses and tall water glasses.
Cherry Blossom confetti (made from tissue paper) is sprinkled across the table and guests can find their spots by looking at their chopstick holders that double as place cards.
The happy bride shows off her white carnation and cherry blossom bouquet.
Check back later today for images of the dessert table and the amazing cake made by
Alicia Smith of The Sweet Smith blog!
This Love in Blossom concept shoot was featured on Hostess with the Mostess!

I’ll be posting the DIY projects on this site next week!
