DIY Napkin Wrap

There are two reasons that I randomly decided to create this DIY project. The first, is that after seeing so many of you comment on the one crafted for the Aaron Delesie rehearsal dinner, I thought that it would be fun to just give you something that you could do on your own! The second reason is that I've been working so hard at writing, at making the site a beautiful, completely clean...

Taaa-Daaaa! The secret is out of the bag! We have a brand spanking new site and man oh man, are we excited!

DIY Project: Custom Seed Packs

Love this next one. Love all of them actually, but this one is especially sweet because the bride and groom really looked to their own lives to find favors that they could make and share with their guests. From the bride...My name is Trish and my fiancé is Luke. and we came up with an idea to do a seed packet and matching pot for our wedding favor. He is an assistant superintendent at Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Last summer they held the PGA championship at...

DIY: Photo Coasters

These are really similar to the coasters that we featured just a bit ago...but a more personal approach! Such a great gift for those that love you! From the bride...Custom Photo coasters are a great favor for any size wedding. Depending on your budget you can choose how many coasters you’d like to include. They are environmentally friendly because your guests will re-use them in their home for years on end, rather than throwing them away, like so many favors. If you have a photo booth...

DIY: Coasters

I am completely obsessed with this next idea, and actually, just might go make these adorable coasters myself to have in our office! Also love the idea of making each bundle different, with modern graphic prints. GREAT way to add a pop to your decor. Here is the play by play... From the crafter...I think these favors are appropriate for our current economic situation. With each set of four coasters costing about one dollar (mine were a little less), I think it would be difficult to...

DIY Project: Photo Books

Our next DIY is just too cute. They are perfect for really meaningful bridesmaids gifts, too which I love. Plus, the bride has a great way to cut down the labor involved if you want to make a photo book for each guest. So personal, so sweet. From the lovely bride...instead of calling each girl on the phone to invite her to be part of my big day, I wanted to find a way to show her how much she means to me and why I want her to be a part of my wedding.  So, I collected photos of me with...

Wedding Centerpiece by La Partie Events, IX

If I could fly out to LA and give Meg of La Partie Events a hug, I totally would. Although that would probably scare her off. So, instead, I'll just tell her that we loved what she created for us today on SMP. The originality, the thoughtfulness of each design, the fabulous attention to detail and style...it's well, inspiring. To say the least. If you are lucky enough to live in the area and are looking for a planner/designer...
