Happy Thanks-giveaway!

I wanted to share a little something this Thanksgiving!
So I'm having a giveaway today over at my crafting blog The Lovely Lemon!
Head on over for your chance to be the lucky winner of a festive fall coffee cup sleeve!
Happy Thanksgiving!

You're Invited to the Party!

Lovely things are brewing at Le Wedding Party, a sweet little blog all about weddings launched by Elsie Flannigan and her sister Emma (of Red Velvet lure). And I LOVE it!

Now, I'm already married so I'm not planning a wedding, but everything on this blog is just so beautiful! I also like to keep up with trends and all things beautiful since my husband Matt and I have ventured into the world of wedding photography.

Seriously, you MUST check this blog will fall in love !
(pun intended ;)

Cute little Pony Party by Rachel Denbow!

By Golly! She's done it again! Rachel Denbow has got the best taste! Her style is so vintage and can see that from the way she dresses, in her home furnishings, and even in her party planning!
I give you....the Pony Party!

She made this sweet little bib out of a vintage doliy for the sweet little birthday girl, her daughter Ruby. (who turned two!)
Mother and daughter at the beautiful vintage pony party!
Oh I LOVE these pretty felt ribbons! So inspiring, I think I'll make a few myself!

Such a simple food table setup, but the colors are lovely and I love the horses. (which were Rachel's when she was little) I love that she was able to use something that she had herself as a young girl for her daughter's party!

Here's the beautiful bib post-party! A little worse for the wear but it did it's job!
The cupcakes did look delicious, and I think Ruby liked them too!

My New Adventures

Hello party loving friends! I have been away for a VERY long time but I have some brand new ideas for the direction of this blog! I still love planning parties but I have had such a restricted budget and Matt and I have been living with family for over two years throwing parties has been a bit harder to accomplish. ;)
However, in the past year my husband Matt has stumbled across his PASSION!
He is now a wedding photographer . . . an AMAZING wedding photographer...and he's taking me along for the ride!
I have been going to weddings with him technically as his "assistant" but I have been acting as more of a second shooter. Which means I have been getting a lot of photography practice. I still have a lot to learn but I have a good teacher in Matt! :)

So I've been thinking a lot about the new direction of this blog and I am so excited!
I plan to share each and every wedding with you! All the beautiful details, as well as my progress in photography! If you would like the see the work of Matthew R Photo (that's me and Matt ;) follow the link.

I still plan to share any adorable party ideas I see too!
What do you think?

P.S. that photo up there was taken by ME ! :)
