Bridal Spectacular January 2012

It’s bridal show season!  We love setting up a booth and visiting with brides about their upcoming weddings.  So many of you have great ideas to incorporate into your weddings.  We chatted with brides looking for weddings inspired by Audrey Hepburn, cowboy boots and Wranglers, Spiderman, Lake Tahoe and much more.  Weddings infused with personality, culture and details are our favorites!  Here is a peek at our booth.  We set up a mini version of our office and gave away a free design session.  Thank you to all the brides and vendors who came to say hello!

Fall in love.  And sit in the sun and draw patterns all day long of different textile designs I plan to create! -Erin

What is the most dangerous thing you have ever done?
The night before my senior year in high school I joined a group of girls, went to our high school, spray painted my nickname to claim “my parking spot for the year”…proceeded to get chased down by the local police and gave a fictitious name so that I didn’t have to go to the Principal’s office the next day!  I was SO afraid my father, who was a law enforcement officer, would find out too!! -Nancy
