Fun in the Nursery

Happy Sunday night! Just poking in to post something I've been working on (and finally completed). My friend, Ally, is having a baby boy any day now, and they wanted an outerspace-themed nursery for him. I jumped at the chance to help out. Last summer I did a wall stencil for my friend Laura's baby nursery, and this summer I got to expand that even more and paint an ENTIRE nursery. The parents had a lot of fun ideas in mind, and I hope I did them justice! Enjoy :)

glorious summer!

Back from Rome (bye bye gelato and vespas!!) and two weekends of weddings. Finishing up some more weddings and showers before I head to Mexico on July 2 for a week. Jen and Fritz got married at a beautiful lakeside ceremony on June 5. The day was a total reflection of the both of them -- fun and relaxed. I was the "unofficial, official wedding coordinator," and loved every second of it! We ordered the flowers wholesale and had them set to arrive on Friday. They were in perfect condition Saturday for me to put them into beautiful bouquets for the bride/bridesmaids/mothers. Also, we used coordinating hydrangeas for the chairs making up the aisle. I hung paper lanterns with fishing wire and made sure all the people were set to make their entrance at the right time to the right music. Then, when I went to bed that night, I sighed a huge sigh of relief. Fun Fun!

Now, what have I been working on, invitation wise? For starters, we have Alison and Nick's super fun booklet invitation. Seriously. Check out how cool this is:

...and the coolest part? The perforated RSVP postcard:

Moving along, we have Liz and her fiance, Jason. I fell in love with her colors of champagne and rose, so I just went with it! She received them today and loves them! Whew!

In between these, I've constructed a few shower invites:

Put together some save-the-dates:

and helped some people plan some parties:
This weekend I am headed over to a friend's house to help paint her baby's nursery. It's a rocket/alien/outer space theme, and I simply cannot wait! It's going to be awesome. And I promise pictures :)

That's it for now -- gotta stop somewhere. More to come, as usual :)
