I am so glad you stopped by today.  I want to introduce you to some fun creations by one of my team members - KAREN PARTIPILO.

Karen has such a sense of style in her creations and I really love the ones I am sharing with you today.

Karen sponsored a bridal shower for a relative recently.  She designed and created the invitations, the theme, the food, the name tags and much more.

Let's start with the invitation:

MEANT TO BEE - with the bee and honeycomb theme chosen, Karen used the honeycomb embossing folder on the so saffron card stock for the base of the invite.  She lined the back of the invitation with burlap and let the frayed edges just peek out for all to see.  She tied some lace around and hung a bee charm with some bakers twine off of the lace.

 As each guest arrived at the bridal shower, Karen had a special name tag waiting for them to write their name on it and pin it on.  This helped out of town guests to know all the attendees.

 Karen even carried the theme into the refreshments.  Aren't these cookies adorable??>!!  Sugar cookies decorated with yellow icing and a sugar bee attached with frosting.  YUMMY

Here is a closeup of the cookie with the cute sugar bee.

A special party favor was given to each guest as they left at the end of the day...a honeycomb wax candle, complete with another bee charm and a special punched tag with the thank you note.

A month or so later she held another bridal shower for a relative and here is what she created for that one:

This is a lovely invitation in night of navy and blushing bride. The bodice of the dress has sheer ribbon threaded through, with pearls added.

I want to thank Karen for sharing her beautiful creations with all of us.  I know you have enjoyed these as much as I did.

Stop back again and see more lovely creations, won't you?
