We had an "enchanted" evening with the folks in Madison last night. Thank you so much, Amy Johnson, at

One Fine Day

for inviting us to the show! Please take a glimpse into our event and enjoy! We look forward to working with some of the brides we met and hope to hear from you soon!

Brides, you may notice these handy little "CP Mighty Grips" in your bags, those are from us! We thought it was the perfect gift for you to remember us by as you try to unscrew that stubborn jar as a new bride.

As always, thank you so much to my dear, wonderful, stylin', handsome husband for helping me out so much and for always supporting me in all that I do. I enjoy having you with me and couldn't do it without you!

We were so delighted to be a part of the Enchanted Summer table with Personal Expressions. It was so fun to do the research for Shakespeare's, "A Midsummer's Night Dream" and have a part in the inspiration behind their designs! It was a result of the most gorgeous and complimentary table to add our menus, table number and escort bottles, (filled with nothing else but Rose Water and Orange Blossom Water, of course) to.

The cover was made of nothing else but the oldest writing material in existence today, papyrus. The window was trimmed with silver or gold Dresden, made in Germany, and overlayed with brown wax paper to reveal the inside which opened up from an accordian fold. The backside was duplexed with this beautiful marbled paper to mimic the inside bookcovers they used to use in vintage books, (the same paper you see on the escort cards).

 In all the pieces I used a delicate handspun, silk tissue in the middle.

I couldn't resist to add an invitation book to the table designs ... made of birch, bound together with twine, trimmed with Dresden and using more of that beautiful ribbon, marbled paper and spun tissue.

 I bid thee goodnight ... 

A common question of the evening was, "Where are you located?". I wanted to mention, even though we aren't in the Madison area, we do work easily via email with pdfs or phone, so please don't let that deter you!
