Love is all around! {Valentine's Day 2011}

Saturday, February 12, 2011

In honor of Valentine's Day, I wanted to blog three "love" themed projects that we have been working on!

We were contacted by Josh 4 months ago to work on a very special project with him! He was preparing to propose to his girlfriend, Christina and was trying to plan something special for the proposal. He had purchased a box of wine infused chocolates from their favorite winery and wanted us to "dress it up" and create an insert with a note that he had written for her. He was then going to have one of the chocolates featured in the box with her ring sitting on top so that as she opened the box, the proposal would unfold. The box was a beautiful grape color and to keep with the natural vineyard theme that Josh gave us, we added a citron green linen paper belly band to the box that featured dried grape vines, beaded grapes, raw silk ribbon, velvet leaves, and a tag. The proposal was to take place on her birthday so to throw her off, the tag read
"Best birthday wishes to Christina!
With Love, Josh"
When Christina opened the box, she found the note from Josh that featured the words "Marry Me" at the bottom. A single chocolate truffle with her ring were below the note.

Here are the pictures that I took of the box (with my engagement ring) before handing it over to Josh. And in case any of you were wondering...Christina said "YES!".
We also were contacted by two wives that wanted something more "edgy" for their husbands. The first one needed something that was poker themed as she wanted the inside to say "You are the King of my heart! Thanks for giving me a full house!" which we thought was totally adorable. She will be giving this to her husband on Monday along with her boudoir album...he is one lucky guy! The other wanted a card that incorporated edgy metal elements. We used silver metal sheets, mesh, metal die cut letters, and distressed paint to create this card.
Next weekend I'll be posting pictures of a candy buffet that we coordinated that is going to be set up for a "mommy and me" club's Valentine's Day party!
We hope everyone has a fabulous Valentine's Day! XOXO
