SPRING for Yellow and Pink!

When I think of the colors yellow and pink, my mind automatically thinks of Strawberry Lemonade! YUM! Although Strawberry Lemonade is delicious, it is not the only thing that is shaded with these two colors. Yellow is the color of hope and happiness while pink is universally known as the 'color of love'. Both of these meanings are dead on with what a wedding is supposed to be about--being in love and having hope for the future. So why not mix the most joyous day of your life with colors that subconsciously make people feel the same way that you do? I just can't help but smile with either one of these colors.
There are other upsides to having such fab colors shower your special day. For one, they are pretty accessible colors, especially this time of year. Also, almost every girl loves both of these colors. For your BFF's to spend the amount of money that they do on a dress, at least let it be a color that they like and look good in.
After looking at these colors for so long, I think I'm just going to have to give in and make some Strawberry Lemonade. Or rather, go get a Strawberry Lemonade Slushy from Sonic.

~Happy Planning!~

As an event planner, I love to have any reason to plan a party. And adding wonderful things like Easter eggs, the Easter Bunny and a nice big ham dinner just makes it even more special. We need to enjoy all of those things but our main focus should be on something much greater. We would not even have this fabulous holiday if it were not for our Savior, Jesus Christ. So in the mix of the egg hunts and spending time with your loved ones, remember to stop and say a little "thank you" prayer to the One who wants us to have a fabulous party with Him for eternity.
With all of that said, I hope that you enjoyed this holiday weekend and shared many great laughs and memories with your family and friends. Remember that all of the Easter decorations should be going on sale tomorrow so go out and build your Easter decor for next year. These are some fabulous ideas from Be creative and remember to have fun with it!

Go Green for St. Patty's!

Now days "going green" means much more than St. Patty's day. It is all about taking care of our one and only planet. There are several websites out there to help you think of ways that you can help us save our planet like,, and
Now, with all of that said, let's focus on the holiday that celebrates the color green, St. Patty's Day! Although it is not until Monday, we can be thinking of creative ways to decorate, dress and celebrate. I absolutely love flowers and use any excuse to shower my home in them. I will definitely be adding flowers like you see above to my table, mantel and probably front porch. I tend not to lean to the plastic decorations, but yet more elegant flower and table linens that just touch on the holiday. I like the simplicity of decorations and believe in the saying that "less is more".
I would love to know what kind of ideas or pictures that you have for St. Patty's Day. If you have anything that you think that would be a good thing to post, email me at and I'll make sure that I post them in time for the holiday!

Thanks to these websites for their pictures:,,,,,,,,

Another GREAT giveaway!!

Okay, now this giveaway might blow some of you away. The total cost of this item is $21,000!!!!! is having a contest to see who has the most romantic, original and creative words expressing true emotion. The winner of this oh-so romantic writing contest will be the winner of the 5.58 carat diamond necklace from Kwiat!

I am so excited about this contest and for the person who wins this fabulous necklace. It might seem easy to write about your loved one, but when you start to think about what it is about that other person that just makes your heart pitter-patter, the words (at least to me) just seem to get so jumbled. It's not that the words aren't there, it is that there are too many words to sum up one emotion.

When my husband and I first said "I love you" I knew right then and there that we had to truly hold onto what the words mean and not get into the habit of saying the phrase. Now that the big "L" word barrier was broken, I made my-then-boyfriend promise me that he would only say it when he was truly and honestly feeling it at that moment. And I did the same. It meant so much more to both of us when we would say it because we knew that we were feeling the emotion, not the habit. Now that almost 6 years has gone by since that moment, we have been bitten by the habit. I guess we need to all rethink back to the time that the phrase was first said to you by your loved one. What did you feel? Has the feeling of the phrase changed now that time has gone by?

Let's all think about why we REALLY LOVE someone and put those words down on paper. If you are feeling jumbled, that is okay. Write all of the words that comes into your head and then make sense of it. Afterwards, make sure whoever you wrote those kind words for is able to read what you wrote. No matter if you win the contest or not, it will draw you closer to the person you love, and there is no prize greater than that.
