Blush and Gold Watercolor Wedding Inspiration


Summer is here and so is wedding season! I was inspired by the beautiful blush pink hues and gold accents when I created this wedding inspiration. These colors are perfect for any bridal event, from the bridal shower to the bridesmaid luncheon!


A spread of delicate rose petals adorned the tabletop with beautiful peonies nestled in a gold geometric terrarium. My grandmother's beautiful depression glasses added the perfect amount of color and elegance. This wedding inspiration was not hard to pull together with the great selection of products from Oriental Trading






The watercolor place cards, invitation and large welcome sign tie all the elements together and can be found in the shop




With just a few pieces, it is easy to celebrate the Bride and Groom with sophisticated elegance.

DIY Toss Me Confetti Packets with Cricut Explore Air 2


Did you know, confetti is a traditional symbol of good luck for the bride and groom tossed in the air to wish them health, happiness and a long life together? I incorporated it into the bridal shower for the guests to have some fun. 

Today, I am sharing this fun DIY as part 2 of our Geometric Navy and Gold Bridal Shower Party with Cricut. If you missed this fabulous party, you will want to read all about it, here! I am pretty sure it is one of my favorite tablescapes to date!

I love confetti, so I thought it would be fun to add the confetti packets to this bridal shower. Who doesn't like to be showered with confetti? Ok, maybe some of you, but overall it is super fun! 

Guess what? If you don't own a Cricut Explore Air 2, we are giving one away!! Oh yes we are! More on that opportunity later, so make sure you read this post entirely! 

Let's get to the Confetti Toss Me packet. 


What You Will Need: 
In Cricut Design Space when I searched for diamond images I found this one {M3913B from Once Upon a Princess}


I found a font I liked and spelled out TOSS ME and sized it the the size I wanted. 


Now I was ready to load my Vellum. I inserted the Blue 1.0 Metallic Pen and made sure WRITE was highlighted on my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine so it would WRITE the words TOSS ME. {You will find this in the layers panel. Click on the font and at the top it will have the choice to Cut, Write, Score, Print. Make sure you choose WRITE}. Also, make sure you choose the color pen you are using.


Insert your vellum and let the Cricut Explore Air 2 do it's job! 


Once it is cut remove it from the cutting mat, it should look like this! Make sure you save your project. 


Now it is time to cut the confetti! This is the fun part! In the drop down menu at the top where you saved your project, click on new. Now insert the shape(s) you want your confetti to be. We chose the circle, hexagon, pentagon and the diamond shapes. 


We wanted the confetti to be small but not tiny, so we chose 3/4" or .75"


We made 26 of each design so we would have plenty of each design for the Toss Me packets.


Insert your Gold and Navy cardstock to be cut into confetti. Once they are cut you will have your Toss Me packet ready to go. Glue four of the five sides with Elmer's glue leaving one of the longest sides open to insert the confetti pieces. 

This step is OPTIONAL! You can sew the sides closed, which would be super cute, 


but I could not sew a straight line to save my life that day, so I opted to use the gold glitter washi tape to finish off the Toss Me packets. I simply taped each side of the packet and added a gold cord loop, in case I wanted to hang the packets or attach them to ribbon. 



Now you are ready to hand these super fun Toss Me Confetti Packets to all your friends!!

DIY Let's Brunch Sign with Cricut Explore Air 2


Whether you are hosting a bridal shower brunch or a brunch with friends, our Let's Brunch sign will be perfect! To celebrate the wedding season and summer, we are showing you how to create your own Let's Brunch sign with our Cricut Explore Air 2.

If you don't own a Cricut Explore Air 2, by the end of this post you will want one and guess what? We are giving one away!! Oh yes we are! More on that opportunity later. 

My Cricut Explore Air 2 and vinyl can help take a project from ordinary to extraordinary! Just think about the possibilities. Before you host your next brunch, create one of these signs and be the talk of the party! 

What You Will Need: 

Step 1:

Spray paint your frame gold with Rustoluem Metallic Gold spray paint. 


Step 2:

Open Cricut Design Space and a new project. Type out Let's Brunch. I used the sweetheart script font for the wording. However, you can choose whichever font you like best. 



Step 3: 

Size your font in Cricut Design Space. I sized the "Let's" to 5.82"x 3.59" and the "Brunch" to 7.35" x 2.97". I had to ungroup the letters and space them so they overlapped. Next I had to weld the letters together to make one continuous word. 

Step 4:

Place your glitter vinyl on your cutting mat and using the paper guides, load it into the Cricut Explore Air 2 machine. Now you are ready to cut your words. 


Step 5: 

Now that your image is cut, you will need to weed out the excess vinyl you don't need. You will use the weeding tool to help you do this. 


Step 6: 

Remove the liner from the transfer tape, with the adhesive side down, gently place it over the wording. Transfer tape is a medium to get the words {or image} from one place to another. Using the scrapper from your tool kit, rub the tape onto the vinyl. At a 45 degree angle, peel the vinyl away from the liner. If the vinyl sticks, simply rub the tape on the vinyl again. 

Step 7: 

To apply your words on the glass of the frame, carefully place the transfer tape with the words onto the glass. Making sure your words are straight. Starting in the center, moving out towards the ends, gently rub the wording onto the glass and peel away. 


Step 8: 

Place the glass into the frame! You now have your own Let's Brunch sign you can use again and again!


This is only one of the DIY projects we created for our Geometric Navy and Gold Bridal Shower  We will be sharing a few more projects, so come back often to learn how to make your own.

Geometric Navy and Gold Bridal Shower Party with Cricut







I was so excited when I was asked to partner with Cricut to create this beautiful bridal shower. Not only because I love my Cricut Explore Air 2 so much, but because it was so easy to design my table with it!

As my Cricut worked it's magic, my vision came to life!


I immediately created an inspiration board with endless gold details and splashes of navy. This included a white vintage tablecloth and china, brass candle holders, a gold glam runner and beautiful succulents. 

The china I chose, belonged to my husband's grandmother. Isn't it gorgeous? It matched my vision perfectly with the navy blue accents. I love to have fresh flowers on the table, they just make it "come to life".  Choosing white roses instead of a color, helps pull the eye towards the gold and navy and not to take away from the other elements on the table. A bountiful succulent and  boxwood garland placed down the center of the table ties everything together nicely. Simple gold accents are added to give a "pop" to the garland. I used gold vases varying in height, brass and clear glass candle holders, as well as a few gold geometric terrarium candle holders and navy tapered candles.


A few of the necessary supplies I needed:

Glitter Vinyl {let's brunch sign}
Gold Adhesive Foil {names on the pyramids}
Gold Glitter Cardstock {napkin rings and cheers topper}
Navy Cardstock {menu and pyramids}



Staying with the geometric shapes, I created this fun toss me confetti bag! It is made of vellum and I simply used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut the diamond shape and the confetti to the size I wanted.

Ever wonder why we toss confetti at a wedding? Confetti is a traditional symbol of good luck for the bride and groom tossed in the air to wish them health, happiness and a long life together. I incorporated it into the bridal shower for the guests to have some fun.


Adding unique place cards at each setting helps your guest find their seat with ease. The pyramids I cut with my Cricut served as the place cards as well as held a hidden treasure inside. 




The beautiful gold glitter napkin ring not only held the napkin in place but tied in the geometrical element I incorporated throughout the table. 




If you know me at all, you know I had to add a pinch of pink on this table, but it is the sweetest pink ever! Cheers!


Did you notice the waffles are a geometric shape too? Oh yes they are! *wink


I hope you enjoyed seeing this table as much as I loved creating it. Stay tuned as I will share the details of the DIYs I created for this bridal shower. As an extra bonus, you can enter to WIN your own Cricut Explore Air 2 machine!! Yes, you read that right, you can WIN one!! Enter HERE for your chance. Good Luck!
