I’ve shared several lamp shade projects over the years but this one may be the most difficult to date.
Working with only two fabrics plus a lining wasn’t the struggle but the shape of the shade made things a bit tricky.
I began the process by taking a good look at how the shade had been constructed in the first place.
Meghan sent me this lampshade along with 6 different fabrics in shades of red, gold and black and asked it I’d recover it for her. Well, technically she asked before she shipped it.
As you can see, the before shade is very cute but Meghan wanted to spice things up a bit.
Warning: Lots of how-to pics ahead!
If you’ve ever been involved in planning a wedding one of the most important decisions is whether to use fresh flowers or silk, fake, faux or some other form of not-real flowers.
Kaleigh chose to use both.
The bridesmaids carried fresh flowers while Kaleigh carried a bouquet she created herself from Sola Flowers.
Creating these bouquets involved many things including a bride, bridesmaids and a bathtub.
I love details. In this last post about Kaleigh’s bridal shower I’m sharing the rest of the details that made the day so special including a tutorial for these adorable DIY pink ombre’ clothespins.

The morning of Kaleigh’s personal shower Courtney and Karianne presented her with her own special flower crown for the day.
At the shower the girls set up a flower crown making station for all the attendees to make their own cute crowns.
The crowns ranged in size and style from those that resembled elf ears to crowns befitting a Greek goddess.
It was so much fun and all the girls all looked adorable!

This idea would be perfect for birthday parties, princess parties or parties for any girl who’s young at heart.
Here’s what you’ll need:
This Photo Op Corner at Kaleigh’s personal bridal shower was one of the cutest details Courtney & Gina included for the day.
More photo opportunity than photo booth it incorporated both props and a cute DIY ombre’ backdrop created from a full size sheet.
The light fixture hanging in my sister-in-law Gina’s entry hall is one of the most unique you will ever see. You can’t help but smile when you walk into her home.
This Chandy of Whimsicality is a collection of at least 9 different elements…maybe more.
I am so excited about how CUTE these flowers turned out! And they’re so easy!
Jennifer asked me to make a couple of fabric flowers to be used as tie backs for her daughter’s creamy velvet curtains and this is what I came up with. I’m fighting the urge to add them to every pillow, curtain and lampshade in sight!
And did I mention easy? They’re so easy! Here’s all the details and how to’s.
