Washington, DC!

20 Jul

Whitney and I have made it to DC!  We have officially been here for a week and despite not being able to completely figure out the metro, we love it here!  Our apartment is in Alexandria, VA ( Right outside of DC) and is in a safe and quite little neighborhood.  I am still looking for a job and haven’t really had a good chance to explore while Whitney is at work since it is so hot down here!  We have been into DC and love M Street in Georgetown, as well as King Street in Old Town Alexandria.  Hopefully we get internet soon so I can continue Presently Pink while I am searching for jobs!  Have a great weekend everyone!!

Hello Everyone!  I haven’t fallen off the face of the planet or anything, I just have been SO busy I have had no time to post 😦  I have been working almost 50 hours a week since May 1st and since the weather has been nice all my free time on the weekends is spent outside! AND IN EVEN BIGGER NEWS I will be moving to Washington, DC with my sister in the beginning of July and I am SO excited!  Finally I get to move and be close to a major city, now all I need is a new job! (And an apartment!)  I hope that once things settle down a little I will be able to post on a more consistent basis for Presently Pink because I miss it!!  I hope everyone is having an amazing summer and I hope to check back in soon!

Happy Birthday Whitney!

Tissue Paper Rosette Centerpieces!

13 Apr

When I first saw this Tissue Rosette Kissing Ball (pictured below), I thought it would be a fun and creative project to do for an upcoming bridal show we were participating in.  Since I work at a rental company, we are sometimes limited as to what we can use as centerpieces on the tables we display.  I always try to make DIY pieces that brides can get ideas from and incorporate into their own weddings (like these button table numbers) and thought the rosette balls would be perfect!

Wedding Wednesday!

11 Apr

One thing I have seen a lot of emphasis on in wedding magazines, blogs, and on Pinterest recently is not just the actual ceremony itself, but more specifically the aisle the bride and her wedding party will walk down.  The walk down the aisle is one of the main focal points of the ceremony besides the actual vows of course, and so the theme of this weeks Wedding Wednesday is all about ways to make your aisle creative and something your guests will remember!

1. Personalized Aisle Runner

I LOVE this idea!!  It so personalized and creative and I love how guests will be able to follow your story as they walk down the aisle to find there seats!
