I have hosted numerous showers in my home and simply love the intimacy and privacy an at home shower provides. There is just something special about opening your home to your closest friends and celebrating such a sentimental milestone in such a relaxed atmosphere. Back in June we put together a fabulous at home shower and I can’t wait to share all of the lovely details from it! Stay Tuned!
Dually honored this month to not only get to make a few charms for this gorgeous bride, but to also be chosen & trusted to assist her photographer in capturing the big day. If you can’t tell the little details are my favorite part of any wedding and this one was chalk full of gorgeous little additions. Photos by: Little Blue Bird Photography Make Up by: In2yourbeauty

I love the pairing of this brooch that Karla found with the frames she got from my shop for her sister in law’s wedding last weekend. I also just started carrying these gorgeous rhinestone floral pins in the shop. You can find them here: Pins
How do I attach my charm? This is one of the most common questions I get asked. So I have compiled a few tips and tricks to ensure the best presentation of your charm on your bouquet.
1. Position on the bouquet
Placement on the bouquet is the first thing you will want to determine. My suggestion is to pin it about 1/2″ – 1″ down on the stems. Hanging the charm from this height will give it a balanced look for photos and also give your hands plenty of room to hold the bouquet just beneath the charm.

2. Floral Pins
The most common way to attach a charm is by use of floral pin. You can purchase these from my Etsy site or request them from your florist. The pin can be stuck through the center of the bow itself or through the jump ring used to attach the bow to the frame.
3. Lobster Clasp
In the event that you want to use your charm on something other than a bouquet the lobster clasp’s can be easily attached to your photo charm. To attach with a lobster clasp to a bouquet you will just need to be sure that you have a ribbon that is skinny enough to close the clasp around.
Hanging your photo frame from a jeweled brooch is a very popular option. The brooches all attach with locking pins and add a great deal of bling to your bouquet while also serving a functional purpose.
These small tiles make the perfect bridesmaid accessory. Shown with a small pearl, a gem in any color can be added to the bottom to tie into the bride and groom’s colors.
