The best part of creating styled shoots is the thought that it might create a spark of magic in someone else.

Not once, twice or event three times, but featured five times!! It’s a record we’re very proud of and can’t wait to top!

Fairy Godmother Friday- Honoring a True Fairy Godmother

Today we reveal the way our team will keep Fairy Godmother Pam close to our hearts at every event.

We wanted an elegant and classy gesture, just as she was.

As you may have noticed it has been a part of dress code for our team to wear a flower matching the colors of the event. From now moving forward you will also see a pearl on each flower being worn.

This is for our Pammy. We will remember her everytime we put on our Fairy wings and will aim to spread the magic as she did.

If you’d like to join in honoring her as well we’ll be accepting donations in her name to the Fairy Godmother Foundation she was a huge supporter and board member for the foundation and we know she’ll love seeing this magic grow.

How to Plan a Kid’s Halloween Party That is so Safe it’s Spooky!

 

You may be a little hesitant to send your little ghouls and goblins venturing out into the neighborhood on Halloween night, and for good reason! So, the Fairies combined our magic to help you plan a party for kids with a few safe ways to celebrate the spookiest night of the year!

Halloween Party Costume Contest!

Out-of-the-Ordinary Halloween Party Costume Contest!

It isn’t a Halloween party without a costume contest. So, we created an Out-of-the-Ordinary costume contest; it didn’t cost us a thing and it can be fun for all ages! We dusted off an old crate, filled it to the brim with hats, costume pieces, and props. Instruct the guests that they have 30 seconds to rummage through the crate to create a costume! Have awards for the most creative, the funniest, most random, and creepiest costumes.

The next safe and fun activity, an icky sensory game! Boil up spaghetti noodles, and a can of drained olives, plastic eyeballs, and vampire fangs put them in a bowl. Set-up a partition (we used a curtain), then have the guests line-up to stick their hands in the slimy surprise to find the hidden fangs!

Ooey-Gooey Guessing Game. Can your guests find the fangs?

Finally, send the ghosts and goblins home with a safe party favor, a flashlight! Flashlights can be used when trick-or-treating; keeping them safe and seen while they scour the neighborhood! For a personal touch, we made chalkboard tombstone name tags for each little monster’s gift.

Happy & Safe Halloween from the Fairies!

Choosing Just the Right Veil…

cheap-wedding-veils-with-rhinestones

The bridal veil is such an important accessory to a bride’s outfit. Whether or not you realized it, quite a bit of thought goes in to choosing just the right veil to accent the perfect wedding attire. Here are some thoughts as you consider a veil for the big day!

Keep in mind that veils come in all shapes, sizes, and shades. The rule of thumb is that your veil must match with the style of your wedding dress. Actually, the veil must fit with the theme of your whole wedding! Have you chosen a more formal style for your wedding? Then let your veil reflect that elegant formality. Or have you decided on a more casual outdoor event? The veil should mirror the day’s theme and style. Above all else, the veil must complement your gorgeous gown.

Don’t let the veil become a distraction. After picking out your wedding dress, note the style, color, and design. Then, as you’re looking among the multitudes of veil options, keep these details in mind. Also, remember that veils come in all shapes and sizes! Select something that affirms your body type. Finally, have fun with your choice! Will your veil have beading, ribbon edges, or a special lace design? Make it yours!
