Last Weekend to Enter to Win the Dream Crafting Package for DIY Brides

Happy Friday. Two big things are happening this weekend. The first one is my little girl turns 2 on Sunday. I cannot believe it. Behind the scenes I've been trying to add some "girly" touches to a few Thomas the Train printables as she is really into trains and loves the tv show. The second big thing is that this is the LAST weekend to enter to win the $1,000 prize pack from Anna Griffin and Xyron. This package is filled with amazing crafting and stationery goodness including the most gorgeous papers, floral stickers, decorative paper punches, rubber stamps, ink pads, creative stations that will laminate/make stickers/create magnets, and lots more. Hurry on over to the entry page here for your chance to win.

3 Favorite Fall Wedding Favors

There is a chill in the air now which means fall is on its way {although I know in California I've heard temperatures are still well over 90}. In upstate NY, it's starting to feel like apple picking season and I've already started baking with pumpkin. Plan to make pumpkin cupcakes for this weekend too as our little girl is turning 2. Today, I'm sharing with you three fall favorite favors from Favor Days for those planning wedding events in the coming months. Which fall favor is your favorite?

A DIY Backyard Wedding in Pennsylvania Filled with Color

Today's backyard wedding was held at a private residence and it's absolutely beautiful. I love all the colors, the casual atmosphere, the mis-matched chairs at the reception, the brightly colored bunting hanging from the tent and so much more. There was even square dancing at this fun wedding.

A Gorgeous Ivory & Blush Wedding in Canada with a Brownie Sundae Dessert

Today's wedding couple, Kate and Trevor went to a little dock on the Detroit River for their big reveal, aka the "first look". Then, creative shots were taken around the riverfront and on an old closed down golf course. The couple married on a top level terrace overlooking the Detroit River and performed a "knot" ceremony. For those that may not know, this means the bride and groom tie a knot that is impossible to undo . . . therefore putting the phrase "tie the knot" into action. The ceremony even included a Dr. Suess reading. At the reception, the chair covers and centerpieces mimicked the brides wedding gown and there was even a super elegant candy table with the guests being treated to a brownie sundae for their dessert.
