Decorate to Celebrate Guest Designer!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am so excited to be a guest designer again for Rhonda and Amy's awesome blog, Decorate to Celebrate! Decorate to Celebrate is a super-fun challenge blog dedicated to showing off decorations for every celebration. I seem to get to a rut just making cards, so this blog forces me to get creative and think outside the card box :)

The theme for today's challenge is: dum dum da dum..................WEDDING, BRIDAL SHOWER, or ENGAGEMENT PARTY! 
My decorations are for a wedding party: bride and groom gift boxes, a paper lantern and a flower bouquet that can be used as a table decoration.
I cut the lantern from Tie the Knot and used the fit to page option, which made it 11 3/4". The paper is from the DCWV Luxury Stack. A whole bunch of these hanging around the party, possibly with lights would be so pretty!
The bride and groom gift bags were also cut from Tie the Knot, using Core Couture paper. The pearl decoration is from a K & Company sticker set that I found on clearance at Joann.
For the bouquet, I cut the base from Tie the Knot at 7". The pearl and diamond sticker is from the same K & Company sticker set. The flowers are from Forever Young, and I cut them at 2". I attached them to white lollipop sticks and added a pearl for the center and a ribbon bow. I used DCWV Luxury Stack paper for this as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and thanks again Amy and Rhonda for letting me be part of your fabulous blog! Don't forget to make your own decorations for a wedding, bridal shower or engagement party and link up at Decorate to Celebrate (http://decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com) I can't wait to see what you create :)

Your projects are bee-utiful. I like the paper lantern & the bead embellishments you used. I'm confused. I was asked to be Guest Designer for Decorate to Celebrate this theme of Wedding, Bridal Shower or Engagement Party and posted my projects to be scheduled for today which they are and when I go to the Decorate to Celebrate site I do not see my name, photos or link. I've emailed the site owner, Amy.

Lisa, these are absolutely STUNNING! I was so excited to see what you had up your sleeve for today and you certainly delivered a sparkly home run. :o) The papers are beyond gorgeous, as are the cuts and your beautiful designs. You are so right, the lanterns with festive lights would be lovely. And as for your pearly, sparkly accents... all I can say is you always know the perfect way to accessorize and accent your creations. :o) Congratulations on this well-deserved guest designer spot, my talented crafty friend! You are so inspiring. :o)

Hugs and blessings! :o)
