Tuesday, January, 31, 2012  |  Ribbons

I'm so excited to share with you that there are going to be lots of new projects coming up at the cafe.......YAY!!!  The past couple of months, I've been busy working with so many awesome artists in the industry and  I'm beyond excited to introduce you to one of those gifted artist today, say hello to Dana FitzGerald.

Dana is an AMAZING stylist and we have been collaborating on some projects that I know you are going to love.....now, you probably aren't aware of this, but you've already seen Dana's work and you may not have realized it...you see, Dana was a stylist at Martha Stewart Weddings, Modern Bride and Mademoiselle for years.....her work has graced the pages of these prestigious publications and she is AMAZING!!......working with Dana has been a joy and truly a dream come true....I look forward to seeing her stop by the cafe on a regular and sharing a part of her creative world with us....today is Dana's debut at the cafe and she's sharing one of my favorite wedding details....RIBBONS!!....so without further ado, I give you Miss Dana....and capturing all the prettiness is our girl Amelia of Amelia Johnson Photography..... Enjoy!!  


(blushing) Thank you Janie! I am truly excited and honored to have the opportunity to collborate with such a talented floral desginer and blogger!

When it comes to wedding details I agree with Janie -  ribbons are a favorite. They are a special detail that should just not be over looked! Ribbons should be used to elevate the basics — trim flower girls' dresses, cardigans, shoes, bouquets, paperie, escort card tables, favors, napkins and more!  

Ribbons come in what seems like an infinite number of fabrics, widths, patterns and colors. And what is great is that they are widely available to all!

I am going to share some of my favorite sources with you now...hope you enjoy!
