& include bright flowers for a simple display

Highlighting Creative Women ~ Vendor #2: ByMadelineTrait

design for life's celebrations

So, I met the lovely Madeline last fall at the
Flax DIY Wedding Fair (read all about it here) &
ran into her again at the LOVE/MAKE Wedding Fair this April
(read about that fun collaboration here). She is a
super creative design star! She started out in the
architecture & interior design world, but allowed her creative
side to take hold & she launched ByMadelineTrait back in 2009
(read a little more about that here).

She creates super fun & whimsical cake toppers…

See my previous post all about
unique cake toppers for more inspiration here.

All her work starts with her amazing illustrations. Did I mention how creative she is?!? Then the cake toppers are laser cut on thin plywood & she finishes them by hand painting them.
They are so gorgeous & make a statement at any celebration.

They're rustic & fancy all in one sweet little package.
One of my current favorites from her is the Sailing Ships
with the perfect amount of sparkle. Great for a going away party or a nautical-themed party. Just fabulous!

And now to the GIVEAWAY we're hosting…
You could be the winner of this gorgeous Butterfly Cake Topper.
Use it for your bridal shower & then re-use for your daughters birthday. Yes! It's that fantastic!

Find all of the details for the Giveaway here.

And find all of Madeline's goodness below...

Highlighting Creative Women ~ Vendor #1: the poetry store

the poetry store
a typewriter. a poet. a vision.

What a cool business!?!

Silvi of the poetry store can be a part of your

{engagement party}
{bridal shower}
{anniversary party}
{birthday party}

She'll set up the cutest vintage typewriter
& a desk vignette. 

You pick out a unique piece of paper
(mine was stamped with pink chair silhouettes ~ so cute),
tell her what you want the poem to be about
(mine was Tin Roof Farmhouse {VINTAGE RENTALS}),
give her a few key words & then she starts typing away…

And then you have a fabulous little poem…

rain falling
on a tin roof
that makes music
of a downpour
so too life
makes music
as you move toward
making the days
fill with
your dreams
waking, building
white farmhouses
and you.

Your own little message in a bottle.

Such a great personal touch for any special event.
The perfect "favor" for your friends to take with them.
