Most of my shoppers know my dad - he's always helping me around the shop and with markets.  I truly couldn't run my business without his help and really wanted to show my appreciation for him.  He turned 60 this past weekend and we wanted to surprise him with a birthday party! 
He was VERY surprised!!!

My dad LOVES candy so we made sure we had all of his favorites!

 He was absolutely shocked - he did tell me he's going to get me back:)

During my speech I gave him a present I know he'll use - paint and a paint brush!
We have an ongoing joke - he calls me his boss because I'm always having him paint, fix and get stuff ready for the shop. haha!
Of course he loved his gift:) 

Happy Birthday dad!!

Randy & Elizabeth

Randy and Elizabeth asked me to help with their Nebraska barn wedding!  Their barn venue was located in a very secluded area that had such incredible views.  The barn did need some help (well maybe a lot) but it turned out to be amazing and soooo charming!!  Two employees and I drove a 16 foot moving truck FILLED with all sorts of fun items to decorate the barn - take a look!!!

We brought this mantel, mirror and chandelier which made the perfect backdrop for the head table.

Each guest table hosted various vintage bottles and silver pieces.
 We used a variety of white and blush colored flowers.

I made the table numbers from vintage pictures.

Elizabeth was so fun - I LOVE her cowboy boots!

She wanted her mother's hankie to be included in her bouquet - it was so precious!

We brought this beautiful hutch and table to host the sweets, candy and of course cake.   I absolutely loved how simple their cake was with the single fresh peony.

Look closely at their server and fork set! 

We made these escort cards with a variety of vintage and handmade pieces!

A family tree featuring pictures of their family and the bride & groom.

 They had a wish tree for guests to leave them messages.

Yep, we hauled all of this there!

Elizabeth made these cute books for the kids!

More flowers...

Such a beautiful view!

A couple cute details...
The bride made these cute signs for the buffet and these Cd favors!

Thanks for taking a look!
