First off I wanted to apologize for the lack of posts and updates! Just when I thought I had the time to get my etsy shop up and running, an opportunity came knocking and I just couldn’t pass it up! I’ve been contemplating a while now whether or not to rent an office space that was more suitable to meet my web design clients but with the hours I work I decided to find a home with a detached studio. Well I found the perfect home and with unpacking and renovating the office, I’ve totally fallen behind! But with this new larger space I am hoping to be more productive so please stay tuned!
Between all the moving madness a fantastic customer contacted me for some items for her daughters 3rd birthday. Her daughter loves pink so everything was in different shades of pink and I think it looked all so adorable! I especially loved her party favors, which were sand pails with custom labeled bubbles! Here are some pics, along with some of my customer’s photos.
Custom banner with velvet flocked damask paper, glittered flourish paper and glittered letters.
Tulle pom poms in light & hot pink with crystals
Tissue paper pom poms in Cerise and Coral and custom designed favor labels.
This color board is from an order I had last week for a bridal shower and I gotta tell you, I had so much fun creating all these goodies for such a lovely customer. The color scheme she wanted for her future sister in law’s bridal shower was brown and gold. We started off with the color choices for the tissue paper pom poms and she chose brown, ivory and kraft. For the shower favors she wanted pillow boxes for these cute wooden stamps and candy bags for jelly beans. I designed custom thank you tags with a brown damask pattern for the boxes ,embellished them with a strip of rhinestones and made matching bag toppers for the candy bags. I love how it all turned out and I think the theme looked so elegant and classic!
Wow, it has already been over a month since the Indie I do show and I am FINALLY putting up some pictures from Indie I do. I am so behind on everything and have put my own website on the backburner because of my web design business, but I promise I will be blogging and updating more frequently! I also will be adding a few more products soon so please keep an eye out!
Indie I do was such a fantastic bridal show with so many great alternatives for todays modern bride. All the vendors had such creative and unique booths, products and it was definitely an inspiration. The entertainment and atmosphere was fun and upbeat and we met so many great brides and couples.
Kien & Sweet’s booth was a huge success, it looked even more amazing then at the Cinderella Bridal Show! Diem (my sister who planned and designed the setup ) had more space to work with this time and placed Kien’s beautiful cakes on top of a adorable vintage side tables and a vintage chair that flanked the table. I had almost triple the amount of pom poms this time and instead of hanging the tissue paper pom poms I clipped them from behind the backdrop so it lay flat against it and created a clustered wave of pom poms around Kien’s sign.
For the table , Diem scattered my napkin poms on top of the moss and filled the pearl-strung birdcages with them as well. The burlap and satin table runners, Kien’s beautiful cakes and desserts, the vintage inspired cake stands and white milk glass bud vases completed the whimsical garden theme perfectly!
Thanks to Kien for using my pom poms and EXTRA special thanks to Diem & Mae who helped us for both shows for absolutely nothing in return. You ladies are truly wonderful friends!
Here are a few photos ( thanks Christa!), taken by the incredibly talented Christa Carr (check out her photos on her website, they’re beautiful!).
Pom Pom colors: Coral, French Ivory, Grey and Navy
Last weekend I was at the Cinderella Bridal Show sharing a table with cake designer Kien Nguyen of Kien & Sweet. We had the pleasure of meeting many new brides, bridesmaids and even grooms!
Kien made 250 cake samples for the show and they ran out before the end of the show,(though I have to admit I ate more then my fair share of a sample per person)! Our table looked amazing and unique, thanks to Diem Nguyen who designed the parisian garden theme. Diem wanted to give the brides some inspiration for their weddings and I think our table was quite inspiring!
All in all it was a wonderful experience and I would like to give hugs, kisses and thanks to Diem, Kien and Mae for all their help. Special thanks to Daryl for taking the photos and Kaya for all his help prepping for the show.
I will be helping Kien & Sweet at Indie I do on January 28th so make sure to come by and try some of her delicious samples!

A couple of months ago a good friend of mine who owns and operates Kien & Sweet told me she was going to show her beautiful cakes in the Cinderella Bridal show on January 8th and Indie I do on January 28th. I offered to make the tissue paper pom poms that I have been planning to make to sell on Etsy as her booth decor.
I was happy to hear that I was able to share the table with her and even sell some of my products, so these couple of months have been quite hectic for me! I designed and revamped Kien & Sweet’s new business cards, stickers and created a new website and blog for her. And I somehow, two days before the show, am able to share my own website with everyone!
I originally created Reincarnated for my freelance web design services and for my love of vintage clothing and home decor but with my newly found interest in event decor (thanks to my sister who just got hitched this past summer), I decided to combine it all!
And of course, sorry for the late notice but come visit me and Kien & Sweet at the Cinderella Bridal show on Sunday where you can purchase my tissue paper pom poms and yarn decor! Oh and eat some yummy cake samples too!
