Whitney Smith Pottery...A little birdie told me!

I had to share these cake stands and pottery I found on Etsy.  BEAUTIFUL! The little birds are adorable!  Cake stands are so display your cakes of course, but also really good for decorating, dessert tables, food buffets, etc.  You could add a pillar candle on top, display cupcakes or candy, or hold appetizers.  These were my favorites but Whitney has other styles and other colors as well.  Be sure and check out her shop!

Halloween Treats!

I can't wait to start decorating for Halloween and have seen lots of great ideas.  The two pics above are from Country Living {one of my favorite magazines}.  And the others below are from Martha Stewart {the Queen!} lol =)

Love 'em!! I hope to make these little skull pops!!!

Camping Inspired!

Well, we went camping for a few days and it left me with tons of inspiration! {...and withdrawls being away from the computer and no phone service, etc., etc.!! lol}  But seriously a camping theme party would be so cute, or even a fishing theme.  With both parties, so much could be done with the decor and especially the dessert table!!  Here's a little recipe for you I found on the Woman's Day website putting a new twist on s'mores!

Next time you have a party to plan consider the camping theme...or next time you go camping make it extra special and surprise everyone with a s'more dessert table on one of your nights there!!
 I say in the welcome note that Creationz is about details and really, life is about details!! Take the time to pay attention to the little details in your day and to think of little details that will make someone else's!

{Creationz} Baby Shower Invites

These were some custom invitations I made for my cousin Melissa's Baby Shower {Ladybug Theme} and here are some others I did for my cousin Karina's Shower {Baby Diva Theme}. 

These weren't her invitations but actually inserts that went with her invitation.  They had magnets on the back so that they could be hung on the refrigerator as a reminder.  The wine bottles with the custom labels served as favors at the shower.  Just a preview of some of the things I hope to be selling in the shop soon! =)

This is not a party or a party shop but it is one of my favorite shops ever and a great place to find a special gift. {for yourself or of course someone else} Bella Home Decor & Gifts is a local shop that I discovered about 2 years ago and have been in LOVE with ever since!

  You cannot walk into this store and not be inspired to decorate something!  The owner Sandra and her husband Steve are super friendly and have a fantastic eye for all things beautiful.  What I love the most about Bella is that every time I have gone in, I have seen something new.  They constantly bring in new goodies and Sandra always puts together the most amazing displays.  When you're ready to check out they have beautiful packaging to finish off the great experience you will have there.  If you are local, or passing through,  please stop in and visit and of course pick something up!! =)
Happy Shopping!

{Bella Home Decor & Gifts is located at 1643 N. Schnoor, #105, Madera, CA

{Creationz} Berrelleza Wedding

I cannot describe to you how excited I was to get to the hall and decorate!  =)  My favorite part is to see everything come is nerve racking and exciting at the same time.  I was so lucky to have lots of Veronica and Sergio's friends and family at the hall to help set up.  {Thank you all sooo much for all your help!}   I had such a good time working with Veronica over the last year or so and I think everything came together beautifully!  It was a beautiful wedding and she was a beautiful bride! 

Thank you so much to Veronica and Sergio for letting me be a part of your special day and trusting me to make it beautiful.  Best Wishes to you both and may you be blessed with a long, happy, loving marriage!
XOXO, Monica

{so much work went into this and I have to say a special thank you to my cousin Elizabeth for all your help! xo =) and of course to my helped me so much and are always encouraging me...thank you! xo, I luv u!!..}

{Creationz} Sweet Peas!

I had to share this pic of some baby shower favors I made a while back for my cousin Kim and her husband Robert as they got ready to welcome twin boys!! Inside were watermelon gumballs {yum!} and the ribbons were imprinted with their names and date of their shower.

{Creationz} Clippies!

So, I have shown you a few pics of some cute things but now time for some "Creationz"! 
I made these clippies but wouldn't just call them clippies.  I sneak them from my daughter's collection too and wear them in my hair, and clipped to my shirt or a scarf or my purse......endless!!  I think they are way to pretty to just call 'em "orange clippies" so....I think I will name them!! These will be "Grace" in honor of my daughter Graciela who has taken every one I've made and wears this one every single day! {xoxo} Hopefully these will be in the shop soon!  Here's some more pics!

Maybe I will call these "Sunny" {lol} ???

{Sneak Peek!} Seeing Red - Part 2

Okay, I'm back with part 2 of my little "sneak peek" of the upcoming wedding I'm working on.  These are the custom invites I designed for Veronica and a peek of some of the goodies I'm using at the reception.


Can't wait to pull it all together!
{p.s. thank you to Rick for all your "tech" help!...and to my MIL for letting me borrow her camera in a pinch!}
