I am OBSESSED with this color scheme right now!  I’m itching to paint my spare bedroom these colors, buy new  bedding for my own bedroom, and make throw pillows for the couch.  In other words, I would decorate my whole house in this!  Don’t know what it is, maybe the bright and the muted off-setting each other perfectly, but I adore this color scheme.  Especially when it comes to invitations and stationary.  It looks good on paper folks, but boy does it look good in real life too!  I snagged a few table settings, flowers, and dresses to prove that point.  Here’s a small sample of images I’ve selected over an hour or so of power Googleing.  You can see more and plenty of other great color schemes and wedding ideas by following me on Pinterest.  Check out my Home Decor board and you can take in the full extent of my gray and yellow obsession.

Who doesn’t love cake?  And who wouldn’t want a convenient, fun, and creative way to serve it?  Cake Pops are a great alternative to a large cake, or even cupcakes!  They also offer flexibility with flavors and decor, and saves on those pesky cake cutting fees!  Besides, they are so cute!

Cake pops are sweeping the wedding and event scene.  They are easy enough to make for a back yard BBQ too!  They fit any style wedding, from a quirky garden event, to an elegant ballroom affair.

Here’s a great recipe for the DIY’er!

Update:  I’ve heard of people making these out of doughnut holes from Dunkin’ Doughnuts.  I got excited until I realized that there isn’t one anywhere near me!  But for those of you who do, just poke a stick in them, and dip them in frosting, chocolate, or anything really, and you’ve got your self a cake pop!

What it’s All About

Just wanted to show you all what the Ranch is all about.  This is what we have to work with.  With limited weddings here, our picture portfolio is small but great!  Thought I’d share some of the images from my own wedding, all taken by Rene Tate Photography of Colorado Springs.  Seriously, this woman and her team are so talented they inspire me to do great things every day!

If you’d like to view more images from my wedding please click here for part one and here for part two.

Pinterest, a Great Inspiration Tool


, , , , , ,

So, since we talked last I haven’t done much.  Haha!  But I have every intention to purchase my domain name and start on my website this evening.  Also I plan on making a Facebook page to jump into the social networking world.

And this post kind of goes along with it.  Social networking is a great way to find new and old friends as well as potential clients.  I’m pretty sure that I check my Facebook every twenty minutes.  It’s disgusting.  That’s why we call it Crackbook.  But none the less it’s an amazing tool we have access to.

A friend of mine introduced me to a site called Pinterest on Sunday and I’ve been poking around for the last few days.  It’s AMAZING.  I’m totally obsessed with this site.  My friend described it as “tumblr meets twitter”.  The concept is to create virtual inspiration boards for anything you can think of.  If you are on a website and see a really great kitchen you can “pin” it to your “kitchen” board.  You can also follow other Pinterest users, so when they make new pins you will see them.  You can tag other users in you pins as well, and repin images from other boards to your own. There is such a great sense of community there.  With in one day I already had other users repining my images!  Pinterest is in it’s beta stages so please be patient with issues, it’s got great potential!

This is an amazing tool for weddings!  you can put all of your ideas, thoughts, and inspirations on one page to help you find an overall vision.  Also, ya know, it works great for redecorating your kitchen.
