{Fab Find Friday} Groomsmen Gifts

Groomsmen can be difficult to purchase gifts for because so many of the traditional gifts revolve around hobbies or lifestyles (i.e. engraved flasks, monogrammed golf towels, cufflinks, etc.). One impressive (yet safe) idea is a nice tolietry bag. I found these fabulous finds on Etsy (of course!):

I think the ones with the moustache are hilarious! To learn more, visit QueenBee55's Etsy Page.

Happy Friday!

{Real Party} LSU Breakfast

This morning I was charged with an informal LSU breakfast at the LSU Faculty Club. I threw together some place cards and menu cards for the occasion out of simple, white card stock.

The pictures aren't the best (no worries, I'm getting a camera soon!). I loved the font because it was fun but still readable. It is hard to tell, but the dash box around the name is actually a deep purple. There were a few vegetarians, which explains the V.

The menu cards had matching font with the deep purple dash lines and a light gold stripe to add color.

These were easy, fun details that added that little something to this informal event!

Cricut Creations!

Over this long, restful Labor Day weekend I finally put my Cricut to good use. I only have one font so far so I was limited with my playing...but I still had fun! I made a bunch of gifts for the family...three of which are teenage boys that have little to no desire to own anything cute...but they were great sports! I got the idea of using the vinyl letters on picture frames from my friend over at Emmie Lane...she is so great!

Once I have downloaded the proper programs...I'll be Cricuting everything with fierce determination! Stay tuned for more!

{Fab Find Friday} Puzzling Guest Book!

On this Fabulous Find Friday, I've found an etsy vendor that creates puzzle-piece guest "books".  How creative, right!?!

Your guests sign the back of the pieces and then you have a truly fabulous souvenir from your big day. I can just picture future kiddos playing with this puzzle as Mommy and Daddy share stories of their wedding! sweet!

This idea would be perfect for the couple who wants to highlight their personalities in less obvious ways...or the quirky couple...or the couple that loves doing puzzles...obviously.

Can you see the words in the middle? Just love it!

Have a fabulous weekend!
