Hope you all had a wonderful V-Day with your loved ones. Being a single mom, I spent today with my little guy, actually with my sister and nephew and niece. We visited this indoor-playground, Rocket Kids. It was okay. Empty actually, but we assumed that's because everyone was out at some restaurant somewhere.
But before that, I shared a sweetheart table for an extra special occasion. One of my followers was getting proposed to and I was tapped to set up a tapped to put a little something together for my client. This was a simple set up. The back story:
This was a fun project because I found these super cute XOXO charger plates perfect for the occasion. So when my client approached me for this job, he wanted to keep simple and meaningful. He was nervous and I was a little too. I knew his proposal would overshadow my setup, but I still wanted to look perfect. We all know she was going to take pictures of it. The future groom was nervous because, well a small part of him was afraid she might say no, especially since he's been in the dog house, lol. Their love story started like most story, introduction through mutual friends.
He went on,
"She worked over night as a nurse at the local hospital. They've been together for two years. Two years of dating, well actually he like to say one and half. The first half was spent trying to figure out if this girl was actually the girl of his life. One day, two years later, the light finally clicked on. She saw him at his best and his worst. She caught him in a little lie and completely vulnerable. He wasn't no Denzel Washington, but she loved him all the same. His business have been doing well, so with the extra cash, instead of buying that new car, he decided to invested in a ring. A beautiful diamond ring for his future wife."
Such a beautiful story with a happy beginning. Here is the sample I had put together for him. Once I got the green light, it was a go!
Like I said we kept it simple. I found these soooo cute XOXO chargers at Michaels. I wanted to buy them all. The cupcake was designed by our cake girl Dwynn. The Love card came from Target dollar section. Perfect for a beautiful message and proposal.
We played with adding the cupcakes on the heart dish, but we decided on putting it right on a plate in front of her. We added a candle on the heart dish.
I was happy with the result, so were the newly engaged. Simple but effective. Remember touches of this here and there makes a big difference then overwhelming a table.
