New Found Glory: Tablevogue

Problem: You have a utility table sitting in storage. You bust it out when you are hosting an event that requires a little extra space. No matter how you try, you can never get it to look quite right and no tablecloth on this earth will fit.

Solution: Tablevogue! This unique new product comes to us from Florida and is the answer to our party prayers. The smart box pleats cut out the pinning, cutting, and sewing but leaves you with all the fab you can stand. Say goodbye at long last to table skirts {yay}!

Seriously, the possibilities for this thing are endless! Turn your drab little table into chic dining, bar, gift and sweets tables!

Entertaining outside? The brilliant floor length design is perfect for concealing extra supplies.

The best part?! Let's see...The modest price tag (only $39.99 for 34" and $49.99 for the 6' size) affords couture style at discount store prices. It's available in three standard sizes (34", 6' and 8') and comes in natural and white with more colors in the works.

I love this shot. A chic little patio party at a fraction of the cost. I die!

Check out the website for all the details. They're also on Facebook.

All Press Is Good Press!

Good morning, my little cupcakes! I hope you are staying warm in the frigid-ness that is this morning.

Some great news! Our friends at Kate Funk and Cracked Designs are featured in this article about handmade valentines. Love it. Love. It.

I Love Envelopments!

Oh. My. Blog. I cannot believe this is happening.

What I wouldn't have done to have this when I was planning my wedding. Rather than cart around my loose paper, I could've had this! I could've been a contender! (Well, okay, maybe not a contender per se, but I'm still really excited!)
It's the Mini Deck! And Jigster! Take a look!

I die! I swoon! I can't believe I don't have one!

From the Envelopments website:

Why work harder, when you can work smarter? We’ve created tools to streamline the design and production processes. Whether you’re designing it yourself, or having it done for you we’ve got the perfect solution for personalized communiqués.
With over 200 options, the Envelopments Mini Deck enables you to find the perfect match to your bridemaid’s dress, your company logo, or any project. Take advantage of the $20 Rebate promotion by placing your order with your nearest Envelopments Dealer/Designer. For a more hands-on approach, we’ve developed the Envelopments Jigster. Assemble your custom invitations by mounting layers of Envelopments card stocks and papers consistently, accurately and quickly.

And at only $20 for the Mini Deck and $69.95 for the Jigster, what could be wrong! I totally recommend you scoop yours up today! Unless I beat you to it. For me this, couldn't have come at a better time (I'm almost out of Pearl paper and I have, literally no cardstock! What kind of party planner am I?! No cardstock....absurd)!

You really must follow them on
Twitter, check out their website, and read their totally cute (and helpful!) blog. Trust me on this. How else will you know what's going on with this fabulous company?!

Wow. That was a lot of information to take in-in 30 seconds. But seriously. I had to tell you.

A Taste of Love...

Here's a little taste of the 'Lovebirds' themed event I designed. I am finishing up the decorations tonight and tomorrow and the install is Saturday am. I am so excited, I think this little, casual event will be a memorable one!

Don't you just LOVE it?! I die! And, just in case you are wondering, this is the work of Miss Allison Beilke. Check out her ridiculously cute blog, here. More pictures to come as the event gets closer.

Where in the World is Erin San Diego?

Does it work? No? Ah, well....today is not my best "catchy title" day. Anywhoo....

Oh, my little cupcakes, I'm so sorry I've been away so long. I've absolutely been up to my EARS with work! The 9 to 5 has been a whirlwind, I'm back at job #2, I've been designing an event and I'm working on a few other things (to remain hush hush for now...). But as the dust is starting to settle I have ways to make it up to you...including a dynamite (if I do say so myself) mood board, how to's and some pictures from my last two events!

The fun starts tonight!

Thank you for being so patient!
