Carolyn + Joe - 6.23.12

Taking a little DIY and home remodeling break to bring you some more summer wedding details from my day-job wedding planning :)

Here are some lovely detail shots from Carolyn and Joe's June wedding -- seriously the nicest couple you will ever meet. It was truly a pleasure working with them as Carolyn and Joe brought together their dream wedding day.

Silver Frames presented each guest's placecard.

Buttercup Yellow Tablecloth and bright yellow and white florals welcomed guests.

A photo booth gave guests an outlet to cut loose for the camera all night.

Crafted Wisconsin Cheeses -- yum!

Carolyn presented their family wedding photos from three generations back on each side.

Carolyn and Joe's engagement photos were made into an album for guests to sign instead of a traditional lined guestbook.

The whole Fields Ballroom was brightened with White Pintuck Tablecloths, White Lamour Chair Covers, and Buttercup Lamour Napkins and Chairties.

A centered dance floor gave every guest a great view of their first dance.

Menu cards informed guests of their meal.
Each table was named after a place significant to the Bride & Groom.

Carolyn's mother made these lovely arrangements of silk flowers and ribbons  to border the entrance to the Ballroom.

Their DJ created an "R" initial light, projected onto the dance floor all night.

I loved their cake selection. As bright and cheerful as the rest of their wedding decor.

Each tier looked like it's own special wrapped gift.

Fresh Flowers and a jeweled "R" adorned the cake, created by The Baking Institute.

A unique layout to a traditional dance floor, the Bride and Groom sat on a curved "L" shape table.

Cleaning a Pack-n-Play

My mommy friends often ask me how to clean a Pack-n-Play. Likely because my toddler is all about making the biggest messes possible. After a few rounds of taking a damp rag to it like the manual suggests (HA), I thought, there has to be a more effective way to do this. Look at that dingy grossness:

So what does Pinterest suggest we use to clean, like, everything? Dawn and White Vinegar. I'll try anything once.

Here's how it went down:

1) Filled a bathtub with hot hot hot water, 1 c Dawn and 2 c White Vinegar.

2) Folded up the Pack-n-Play, shaking out any crumbs (there are always crumbs), and laid the whole thing down into the hot bath. I ran my hands along the netting and material to agitate any dirt and grime off of them.

3) Allow to soak about 15 minutes. To rinse, I drained out the tub water, then turned on the shower and hopped in to direct the shower head all over the Pack-n-Play to rinse well.

4) To dry, you can either lug it outside, pop it open (upside down) and allow to …

What to do when baby has a cold...

As a new(er) mom, I sought out the advice of moms before me when my little one had her first cold. Of course, so many advice gets thrown at you, but when they're too little for medicine, here is the best combination of remedies to help baby colds and congestion:

Of course, do not use this as a substitution for professional medical advice. This is just what's helped at our house, and I hope it can help at yours too.
Stay fabulous,
