Library Style Boxes, Oh The Possiblilites

As you may have guessed, I love boxes.  Especially vintage library looking boxes.  How gorgeous is this floral display photographed by Jose Villa?!  I am always trying to come up with new ways to use all of the boxes I have collected over the years.  I will definitely file this idea away for our next house.

As far as using this idea for a wedding, I would add little note cards to some of the drawers to be used as a guest book table.  Each drawer could be labeled with a prompt like “The best part of today has been…”  Or maybe fill some of the drawers with photos of the couple and their family.

Etsy Wedding Team

The Etsy Wedding Team is a an amazing group of talented artists that I am so honored to be a part of.  It has been a great source of support and inspiration over the last couple of years.  As my business has grown, they have been there every step of the way.  When I encountered a not so nice copy cat they were there with great advice.  When I was planning my own wedding I absolutely turned to several of them to help me create an unique event!  You can find out more and see a list of vendors here.

My Wedding

I am back!  It’s been so long since I’ve posted anything.  As my wedding approached, things got so crazy.  I still can’t believe we got everything done in time!  I might have taken on one too many projects.   But so is the life of a Graphic Designer when she plans a big party.  I will slowly but surely get back to posting on a regular basis as we have not gone on our honeymoon yet.  Also I have decided to only tweet from @cutthecakeetsy as it is too overwhelming to have more than one account.  I hope you will follow me (http://twitter.com/#!/CutTheCakeEtsy).   I appreciate your patience and friendship!

I am so excited to share some of our wedding photos with you!   Our amazing photographer Todd of Come Together Studios shared these with us yesterday.  Enjoy.  Please comment… I’d love to hear what you think!

Chris & my daughter Madalyn

Love this last picture.  Chris and I have know each other since 6th grade.  He was my first “boyfriend”.  We are three days apart and went to high school together.  This pic is the Class of 94.  So fun!

Just a sneak peak I will definitely share more.  I will also share all of the details…  all the diy’s, vendors, etsy love, etc.

Luscious Peonies

Luscious… that one word describes peonies perfectly.  I especially love white peonies paired with a small flower contrasting in color.
