Tacoma Wedding Expo

We had a great time at the Tacoma Wedding Expo this spring. I had a chance to meet a lot of very excited and creative brides too! In addition, there were some wonderful vendors that were in attendance. If you missed the expo, no worries! I'll be sharing some of my favorite local vendors with you in the next few weeks. I hope they will provide inspiration or guidance to you as you plan your wedding or even your next party.

For me, the fun part about my job is meeting all of you and supporting my favorite vendors in doing what they do best and what they love.

Here are a few pics of Full Bloom Moment's booth at the expo!

These paper flowers were quite popular! In the future, I will post a how-to for those of you that are interested.

Handmade Pledge

I Took The Handmade Pledge!

I took the handmade pledge, join me?

One thing I love is browsing and getting lost in all of the amazing things people can create with their talents. For myself, this year more than ever before I have really embraced buying local or buying from smaller companies. It makes me feel good to support these hard workers. Here are some of my favorites I stumbled upon from lately:
Purchase on Etsy here.
I am a sucker for any paper made creations, I love paper and I am addicted to it like little girls are addicted to collecting stickers :)

Purchase on Etsy here.
I love these printable packages available for at-home printing for upcoming parties. These little details really have a way to quickly tie things together and make a party stand out.

I happen to have an upcoming birthday party on my mind, so that thought took over on my latest Etsy browse session. These are super cute!

I am not in the market for a new teapot but I do think it could be the perfect gift for a certain bride, the search is on!
