J+C Wedding

Jamie and Charles tied the knot at the Harvest Inn located in St. Helena, California. It's a beautiful and quaint hotel.

Wedding Coordinator: Lisa from Bellissima Vita
Wedding Stationery: Susanne from Cards de Luxe
Colors: Creams, peaches with light blue accents
Flowers: Roses, hydrangeas, and dahlias

I didn't get a chance to take pictures of her bouquet :( So those will have to come later when I get them from her photographer (hoping and crossing fingers!)

We placed buckets along the aisle for the ceremony and then moved the flowers to the reception tables afterward.

Programs, escort cards and menus were designed by Susanne from Cards de Luxe

V + K.C. Wedding

Vanessa and K.C. got married on a gorgeous day at the Mill Valley Community Center. A really nice venue with an area for an outside ceremony and a beautiful room for an indoor reception. Their colors were baby blue, chocolate brown with accents of cream/ivory.

The reception centerpieces altogether.

We lined the aisle with buckets and were able to use them again by moving them on to the guest tables after the ceremony. A good way to save some money!

Ceremony arch with garland. The garland was moved to the
candy buffet table after the ceremony.
For the reception we had tall centerpieces and low centerpieces.

Vanessa made these very cute escort cards

M & D Wedding

Melissa and Derek got married at the Wente Vineyards in Livermore. Melissa and I met at one of my DIY Workshops and once her guest list grew (and it always does!) she dropped me an email and enlisted my help. Their colors were shades of pink with yellow accents.

It was a hot day so having these parasols was a nice touch!

Love the modern look of the cake

Baby Shower!

I am so excited to share these! My friend Lisa helped me plan my baby shower earlier this month. I have a bunch of talented friends and so I pooled them all together and put them to work!

Event Planner: Lisa with Bellissima Vita
Photography: John and Jane Cosner with Cosner Photography
Invitation Design: Sara with Stinkerpants Designs
Flowers and Decor: Me - Huckleberry Karen Designs

A very special thank you to the Cosners for taking the time out of their busy weekend to take these gorgeous pictures. Get ready for some eye candy!!

Shower invites designed by Sara from Stinkerpants Designs.
Sara was also kind enough to give me these illustrations so I can make favor tags, shower games, signs and thank you notes !

Lisa surprised me with a "wish tree" where my friends and family
were able to send "wishes" to the baby. It was so much fun to read them!

My niece wrote this one - I love it!

And of course a very sweet note from soon to be Grandma Burling.

Dahlias and wheatgrass - a lovely combo!
I made diaper cakes for each of the tables. The best part is I have enough diapers
for the baby when he arrives!

Here's a picture of me and my sister Sherry. She helped with the yummy food!

And some pictures of the details...because the details is where the love is :)

The delicious cheesecake
Booties my friend made for the baby.

My friend Nicole made folders for the shower games. Talk about being super organized! She even added the cute little hippo and birdie from the invite :)

And of course there were MANY presents for baby. He's a very lucky baby
to have all of these people love him so much!

Favors for the guests: Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Thanks everyone for such a special baby shower!
