Romantic and Ethereal Designs: The Newest Flower Crown and Veil.

New designs have been added to the shop with several more on their way. Meet the 'Sienna' Floral Crown and the 'Sarah' Veil. Each of my designs are inspired by romance and ethereal aesthetic and these pretty pieces are no exception.

Sienna is created with light cream and ivory roses which look and feel so realistic. Sage eucalyptus leaves are intertwined throughout her design for a romantic aesthetic. She's perfect for the ethereal bride to grace her locks as she says her vows.
See more of Sienna in the shop here.

Sarah is a juliet cap style veil created with the softest english net veiling flowing from romantic and intricate ivory cream chantilly lace. The back of the veil has carefully sewn in cream florals and a touch of greenery to add a bit of ethereal beauty.

The Swoon Event: Mini Recap

I had so much fun at The Swoon Event in San Diego last month! It was wonderful to meet with brides and share in their journey of wedding planning! 

I'm so used to working from home as a mother and communicating over the internet. I did this show to learn and step out of my comfort zone. So happy I did because it's a totally different experience to meet customers and potential customers in person and have REAL conversations! Thankful for this event and the amazing people who put this show together.

Also, a huge THANK YOU to my dear friend Tara from Messy Mornings & Mascara for spending the day with me and Cristina from CC Vintage Rentals for letting me use her gorgeous bench and mirror for my booth! Here is just a small peak of the event. More to come!

NEW Pantone Inspired Floral Combs

I am absolutely in LOVE with the new 2016 Pantone colors of the year! When they were announced, I knew I needed to create a couple new pieces inspired by this palette. So, I recently created some new floral combs to do just that.

These are not yet available in the shop but they will be at The Swoon Event next month and you can send me an email (lovesparklepretty@aol.com) until then to order!

Self Worth, Value and Beauty-A Maternity Shoot to describe the DIFFERENCE

I have been asked what makes my crowns so different from the several that have since come out since opening my shop back in 2011. I can give several answers (and have) but a few that I'd like to share today can be expressed through these beautiful maternity photos of Nicole Davidge taken by Savannah Kate

Last year, I had the wonderful pleasure of creating a custom crown for Nicole for her Spring wedding as well as coordinating crowns for her bridesmaids. Before that, I also created crowns for her styled shoots for her photography business, Southern Shutter Photography. Now, Nicole just had her first little love-sweet baby Nixon. I am so honored to have been a part of Nicole's journey (even if it's just been a small part). I am so incredibly blessed to be able to work with the brides that I do. I don't just create floral crowns. I create keepsakes that can be treasured for years to come. My pieces are meant to be worn time and time again through engagements, weddings, maternity photos, family photos and even passed on to our daughters. These past few years, I have been trying to per-fect my designs to be loved and handled. I have gone through different blooms to use the highest of quality, added new techniques including hand stitching and now even adding sealant to the tips of many blossoms to keep from any possible fraying. 

The difference is in the details and the time I put into each piece. I want each woman to feel something when they wear one of my crowns or veils-a feeling of self worth, value and beauty.
