Ribbons are the first thing that comes to mind when you think about crafts, gift wrap, and things you used to tie in your hair as a little girl... but what about weddings? Recently, different ways to use ribbons have been popping up all over the blogs and magazines. They are an inexpensive, mostly simple way to express your personality in your decor, and the opportunities to customize are endless! So as you read on, re-think those old spools of craft ribbons in your gift wrap closet and how they can inspire you to create something new. 


1. Inspired by an Anthropologie floor set, a gorgeous cascade of paper ribbons creates the perfect backdrop for a rustic or empty-looking venue. Oh, yeah, and that's a DIY made from receipt tape by the way.

Monday, July, 29, 2013  |  Engagement Sessions

Happy Monday Guys....hope you all had a wonderful weekend...we are opening the cafe with the cutest and most stylish couple, Brianna & Emerson.  Their e-session was captured by the oh-so-sweet and AMAZINGLY talented, Monika of Monika Bliss Morris Photography.  Monika is currently located in Sacremento and she'll be relocating to Orlando, FL this fall.  Monkika shared that all the photos were taken in the Napa Valley of California. They started the session in a vineyard and were pleasantly surprised when hot air balloons started rising up into the sky! Then they headed into St. Helena for some shots in town. They finished off the session at their alma matter, where they drew an eye on a Daruma doll, a Japanese tradition of goal making.  Let's check out all the beautiful images Monika sent over....Enjoy!!!

kara and gustave

Happy Wednesday Guys...I'm so excited to share Kara & Gustave's wedding with you today.  Kara was the sweetest bride and the perfect client. The first time I met Kara was the week before her wedding...up until then, we had only communicated via email and phone.  When Kara first contacted me, she told me that her photographers were Jodi and Kurt of Jodi Miller Photography....well, she had me at Jodi Miller Photography!  Kara & Gustave's wedding was so sweet and intimate....I truly loved working with her and having all of the florals captured by Jodi and Kurt was a bonus and what made their wedding so extra special to me personally, when I delivered Kara's bouquet to her at the hotel, the reaction from her and her mom was priceless.  By the time I left and got back to my car, Kara had sent me a text message saying, "My bouquet is perfect Janie, I'm so happy!"  And this my friends, is why I do what I do.....xoxoxo  Enjoy the beautiful images captured by Jodi and Kurt!!

Good Morning Everyone! Alisha again, so glad to be stopping by the cafe on this fine Tuesday morning! The theme I have for you all today is inspired by vintage skeleton keys. 

Whether you are looking for an entire themed wedding, a sweet, graphic motif to accent, an inspirational meaning, or to just add a little vintage feel to your big day, I think this montage of key-inspiration should do the trick in unlocking your imagination :-) 

Everyone likes the unique, vintage feel of these keys. I think it is the inner romantic in all of us because as cheesy as it sounds -we all want to marry the one who holds the key to our heart- and as much as a lot of us hate to be cheesy, we love the idea. So, all cheesiness aside, I hope you enjoy today's post and are inspired to add a little old fashioned romance to your decor!

1. A sweet and simple bouquet gets a little more special with a vintage key attached to the burlap wrapping. So much romance in that combination of roses & keys.
