It's been crazy these past few weeks here at the studio! It was so nice to wind down this past weekend and spend some quality time with my family and friends. As you all know by now, I'm a proud mama and never hesitate to share projects and photos that are all about my little one. Sunday marked my first official stage mom experience. It was Natalie's first dance recital, and I couldn't help but make it just a little bit more special and memorable for her. 

I baked and decorated some cookies from scratch - some toe shoes and tutus! This was a last minute decision, and I didn't have any cookie cutters for what I wanted to make. I was left with no choice but to hand cut each cookie with a knife. Yup! Now that I think about it, it's really a perfect example of what I do - custom, unique, hand-crafted....made with love! We handed these treats out to Natalie's ballerina buddies and to friends and family that made it to the show.

At the end of her performance, we gifted her with a little "pretty in pink" ballerina bouquet I pulled together.  English garden roses, lisianthus, and lotus flowers in blush hues - all tied together, wrapped and adorned with a "Bravo" medallion. Natalie really stole the show and every one's hearts! 

The garden roses are so lush and ruffly- they remind me of tutus! 

This is all inspiring me to style a ballerina shoot! Hhhhhmmm.....
