Bridal Jewelry: Stella & Dot.

I mentioned here that I recently attended a Stella & Dot trunk show. There were so many awesome pieces that were fitting for the bride. Here are a few samplings of what they have to offer paired with bridal and bridesmaid gowns.

This color combo of the soft pink and gray is perfect for a winter wedding. The Colette Necklace from Stella & Dot and this fabulous Sasha Brooch, paired with this soft pink (warm pebble) strapless J. Crew bridesmaid dress is something your bridesmaids will love you for.

This smoky blue (charcoal), one shoulder, chiffon bridesmaid gown from Jim Hjelm could double as a mother of the bride dress. And the Sofia Cluster Bracelet has just the right amount of elegance and sparkle.

Brides, this Priscilla of Boston ball gown is encrusted with crystals. I love the edgy-ness of this Petra Braided Bracelet.

Saving the best for last - this Sofia Pearl Bib Necklace is to die for. And you can't go wrong with Amsale. The details in the organza florals and pleated skirt is the perfect match with such a bold necklace.

Pretty Packaging: Stella & Dot.

A few weeks ago, I attended a Trunk Show for Stella & Dot at a friend's house. I was pleasantly surprised at the fun pieces, but I am a simple girl, so I got something to wear for everyday.

I've worn both of these so many times already with either a t-shirt or a cute dress. I was even more excited about the packaging! It was really cute. There are so many pieces that would be great for the bride or for the bridesmaid...more on that soon. These are stunning little packages for a any special day.

Next week, I'll you some pieces I think are great for brides and bridesmaids. But for now, check out Stella & Dot online.

The Green Room: New Meeting Space for A Little Something Detailed

I'll admit it. I only get the paper to read through the yard sale listings for Saturday morning. I stumbled upon an estate sale, thanks to an early morning call from my mother-in-law, and found some great deals.

This is my new meeting space for A Little Something Detailed clients!

Couch - $50
Wing Backed Chair - $20 + $125 to slipcover
Coffee Table - $19.99 at Ikea
End Tables - $7.99 each at Ikea
Black Throw Pillows - $20 at Homegoods
Recovered Couch Pillows - $12 each
Vinyl Shelving - $15 at Home Depot
Black and White Mirror - $17 at Homegoods
Total: $294.00

The couch is in great condition. I really think it was only used in a granny's formal living room for opening presents on Christmas Day. It's vintage style is a great pairing with the rest of the modern elements. I had the wing backed chair slip-covered here in Nashville - let me know if you want his contact number. He is a little creepy, but his work is awesome and affordable.

We already had this Nashville picture, taken by friend, co-worker's husband and former roommate of my husband, Warne Riker. You may recognize his pictures from the cover of the Nashville Scene with the flood picture. That was a real picture folks. He uses HDR for some of his pictures. Uber talented photographer. You can find all of his pictures here for purchase.

ModerNash is a company in town that drives to Ikea every week and brings back goodies to Nashville residents. It is SO much less expensive to have them pick it up than it is to pay Ikea's shipping charges.  And the shelving idea came from a fav blog of mine, Young House Love. Overall, I am very pleased with the outcome of this room, since my hubby thought it was a waste of space and money to furnish - shame on him! Glad I could prove him wrong.

Lake of the Ozarks Wedding Details in Clover and Pink. Part 2.

Seeing a bride's vision come to fruition is totally awesome. What I do is usually just a smidgen of the work and details a family does to bring everything together. And the details really make a big difference. You can see other details of Brent and Michala's wedding here and here. Michala put so much work into this wedding and it paid off! Everything from the favors (cookies and coozies) to the decor, food and music.

Favors: Coozies

The Parasol Room at Tan-Tar-A resort was (IMO) a perfect reception room. Large windows opened to mile-long views of the Lake of the Ozarks. The inside of this room is supposed to look like the mechanics of an umbrella - and that theme was carried out in the reception decor. I love the DIY a-la-Martha Stewart poms, lanterns and parasols hanging from the ceiling of this room.

Each table had wine with custom labels and donation cards for the American Cancer Society as a respectful way to honor family members.

Michala made the centerpieces - having family members save any glass jars. She wrapped them with wire and strung pink and green jewels from the neck of the jar, filled them with sand and used a battery operated candle. So cute! This guest book idea deserves its own post when it is finished. The couple had guests sign quilt squares as their guest book. The squares will be sewn together later for the couple to use in their home. Such a great idea.

And I just had to show this picture - from the gorgeous weather at the ceremony to this!

This is the same window - can you believe it? Outdoor weddings make me so nervous!

We've Moved: Housewarming Invitations.

I've had this idea in my head since before we even knew we were moving. We love throwing parties - usually it's pretty low key - but this one deserved it's own - real - in person - invitation. I'll let the images speak for themselves - check them out below!

Our little guy - Coco - He loves to party!

I should also mention that my inspiration came from this idea I found through Google Images.

Lake of the Ozarks Wedding Details in Clover and Pink. Part 1.

Brent and Michala were married at the Tan-Tar-A Resort in an outdoor ceremony. It couldn't have been a more sunny and clear afternoon for such an occasion. The Windgate Balcony at Tan-Tar-A overlooks the Lake of the Ozarks and all the rolling hills of Missouri. An aisle runner with the couple's logo (from their pocket invitations) lined the path of the balcony with green parasol's for guests to use to shade themselves, and fan programs were the perfect touch for a self propelled breeze. Brent and Michala felt strongly about confessing their love to each other by writing their own vows, and they really choked all of us up reading their vows to each other! It was truly from the heart, and it is such a blessing to see two deserving people find their soul mate.

Congratulations Brent + Michala!

Brent and Michala are getting married today! About right now we are all probably playing in the Lake of the Ozarks on jet ski's before the evening ceremony. Can't wait to share Michala's wedding details with you next week!

New House. New Office and Workspace.

We are FINALLY settled in to the new house which means I am FINALLY settled in to my new office. My old space was a small antique library desk – the size of a postage stamp. I was really hoping for a new house with enough bedrooms to use one as a true office and workspace. 

So, without further adieu, here is the new workspace for ALSD. I still have a lot to do, but I am super proud of my handy work. I built this all by myself! You can see where I got the idea... from one of my favorite blogs, Young House Love who also got this idea from another fav blog of mine, Tart House.

The square bookcases are from Target - actually listed online for more than they are in the store. The table tops are flat panel doors which I painted white. I secured everything with 2x4's in the wall (which you can see a bit of on the far right of the desk). Chair is from Ikea. I am still working on cable management and the best layout, but so far I am very pleased with the set up. This paint is Behr's Pale Lemon - the perfect and perky shade for an office.

I also have some fun coming your way for the meeting room downstairs - yard sale furniture - and it's awesome. All I need is for my chair cover to be ready, and I can do the big reveal!

I'm Baaaaack.

I'm finally back in action after needing to take a few unexpected days off. Unfortunately, it was about the time I needed to fill up the blog cache again. Thank you to those of you who had my family in their thoughts and prayers during a difficult time. to start my posts for the next couple of weeks!

Happy Blogiversary to Me.

This blog is just one today, but looking back over the year at what has been accomplished - in paper details, in food, in decorating my old house and starting all over at a new one, I am proud of myself.  I never thought that I'd actually keep this up like I have. Never the [conscious] intention, this little blog has turned into a real passion for me and has really launched the entrepreneur side of myself into high gear. The best part about that is that I have gotten to work with old friends and made new friends along the way, falling in love with the creations we have come up with together, and making the big events in their lives a little more special. I really do love this little part of my life. What a blessing! Here's to many more blogging years and paper details...Happy Blog-iversay to me!

P.S. In honor of my 1 year Blog-iversary, I created a Facebook Fan page...check it out!
