Handmade Soap Wedding Favors in fuchsia and tangerine

wedding favor all natural organic soap made in michigan tangerine and orange custom label on craft paper by sweet Pea floral design of ann arbor

Just wrapping up some custom soap favors for Karina and Joe's wedding.  At first when Karina sent me her wedding color inspiration I was nervous that the bold pinks and tangerines from the Martha Stewart Weddings Winter 2012 cover would not be a great fit with the natural neutrals of the soaps.

But I set off for Hollanders  looked at drooled on and fondled every paper in the store almost left when I spied this beautiful "Velvet floral" paper near the register.

Because it is textured I learned the hard way that the label wont hold it in place it must be hot glued around the soap (Imagine working for hours wrapping 100 bars of soap then waking up to find they have unwrapped themselves overnight) Oh well :) alls well that ends well. xo ~holly

P.S. you can purchase my completely custom soap favors in my Etsy Shop HERE

Happy 1st Birthday to the Gown Shop

Last night was the fancy first birthday party for The Gown Shop Bridal Boutique of Ann Arbor.  Sweet Pea was thrilled and delighted to design the below pink arrangements in mercury glass vases to add a special touch to the always beautiful Main Street loft that is The Gown Shop
Love those parrot tulips eek!
Succulents and anemone with cymbidium orchids and umbrella ferns
Check out the awesome loft windows that look out over Main Street 

This is my office below in the same building with The Gown Shop (yay!) Thanks to my dear Dad for the new window signage designating our space.  I am office mates with Calynn Berry Photography,  Petals Planning Co. and Custom Paper Works who are all responsible for the lovely table design.

You should smell these garden roses they are amazing!
