Love IS Sweet

by Kristin Lewis

One of the things I love best about One Tiny Heart is being able to work with brides. I've had the pleasure of designing and making countless wedding banners, and it is such a joy to work with the bride as she tells me the vision for her wedding. Recently I've become twitter friends with a gal, Lisa, that hosts #BridalBabble on Wednesdays at 3 p.m. CST. If you have a free hour and want to talk about anything and everything wedding related, please join us! This is what my daughter's room looks like after #BridalBabble. She plays while I babble!

Anyway, Lisa is getting married TOMORROW, and she approached me about making a banner for her treat table. She envisioned a banner that says "Love Is Sweet" with hibiscus flowers to separate the words in eggplant, lilac, and silver colors. I sought out just the right stencil (and found a stencil with 3 stay tuned for more banners to come!), and set aside an evening to create her banner. I used eggplant for the letters, lilac for the flowers, and a touch of silver on the corners book ending the saying. I also added a few silver craft crystals to give it that extra sparkle. Strung with a purple ribbon, her banner is ready to adorn her dessert table inviting her guests to take a sweet treat. Much congratulations, Lisa! I wish you the most perfect day tomorrow and many, many years of happiness.
