December 6th: Sip & See - Colleyville, TX

I received a call from a lady in Colleyville, Texas who stumbled across my blog & asked if I would consider a trip down to provide the floral decor for her Sip & See event! Of course I said yes!!!

Back to reality...the lady is actually my friend Brandi who I go visit quite often! Brandi just had her second baby & hosted a Sip & See at her house for friends & family to drop in, have a bite to eat, visit with friends, & see the newest addition to the family!

Obviously, the baby is a girl! We used flowers in many shades of pink & accented everything with her name or initials, feathers, & lots of sparkle! The rose balls above even had silver lettering that spelled out Ella. So cute!

The wreath graced the front door & gave guests a sneak peek as to what was going to be inside! Did you notice the floral "purse" a few pictures up?? It was a day that I was feeling very creative I guess!

In the entry we placed a curly willow tree with cards that guests could fill out with a note to the new baby that Brandi will scrapbook at a later time.

I had a ton of fun with this event! I even gave Brandi a crash course in floral design so she can do her own arrangements when I can't be of service. : ) Who knows, with some practice, maybe she could open a second location of Bella Design Studio in Texas! Did somebody say Franchise??

Here is a cool shot I took of mother & baby at a house in Austin.
