We were covered!! Crystal tenting above and crystal centerpieces below!!


This weekend Katie and Chris had their wedding and reception under the protection of gorgeous clear tenting. Because the tents were clear, we could see tiny water drops glistening in the sun. The crystal water beads above and the vintage crystal centerpieces below created a sparkling event. We turned a gloomy rainy day into a wonderland of warmth and happiness.

We used the Estate's vintage crystal glass from the 1930's as the base for the centerpieces! Check out these tables!

We added champagne rosette linens, gold rimmed plates, satin napkins and crystal stemware to add to this breathtaking event!!!

I love the flowers!!! Alison at Flower Allie, Fullerton created just the look we in visioned. It was soft and delicate and simply gorgeous. Just what Katie and her mother, Sue, wanted.
Check it out!!
Love and Smiles,

Cake Time! It's Sweet Inside and Out!

Made by Missy Divine Desserts and decorated by myself and Michelle, these trio of cakes were sweet inside and out! Lovely lace accented the top and base of the cakes, soft rose and hydrangea decorations, crystal pedestals, vintage decorative plates and more adorned this cake design.

Hanging gently from ivory satin ribbon, purple, green, and white plates with lavender flowers decorated the walls of the gazebo. On the windowsills, mason jars were filled with flowers.

For the main cake, a single, delicate rose accented the cake finished with a charming vintage bride and groom cake topper.

As sweet as this cake looks, guests agreed savoring pieces of chocolate with cookies and cream filling and vanilla with fresh strawberries!

Sweet Days to everyone!



Oh, happy day! Kelly and Joey's Vintage Wedding!

Oh, happy day!

Although the morning began with ominous clouds threatening with rain, thunder, and lightning, a soft breeze guided the thunderclouds away creating a blessed and beautiful sunny day at the Jones Victorian for Kelly and Joey known to friends and family as "Jelly."

When guests arrived, they were directed to the Guest book where an ensemble of vintage items and heirlooms welcomed them. A classic typewriter held a note inviting guests to write words of wisdom and well wishes for the couple on postcards.

For the table decor, Kelly and a good friend designed each table with a vintage mirror, croqueted doily, picture framed chalk board, green and clear bottles, and a mini lavender bouquet. To finish the tables, ivory napkins were tied with raffia and knotted, then topped with a sprig of lavender. The end result: fresh, creative, and beautiful!

Above, Kelly printed the bridal party information on the back of her petite chalkboards to give the centerpieces details from every angle! Below, mason
jars and fresh flowers decorate the sweetheart table atop a green printed overlay.

The wedding. On the entry gates to the wedding, a sign mirrored the design for the ceremony area with a sweet mason jar filled with roses, hydrangea and lavender sweet peas. Michelle and Kelly designed the ceremony area with clear mason jars that hung from chairs on the aisle as well as from picture frames on the arch creating a refreshing design!

Congratulations Kelly and Joey! We wish you a future as bright and beautiful as your wedding day!
