    This one is perfect for artists, hipsters, creatives, or the couple that has a lot of hands on help.  Because those cranes would take forever, so unless you’re super talented with loads of time on your hands, you’re going to need hired help on this one.  But I love the tiny paper cranes against the dark fabric background, don’t you?

      Oh wow! The vow backdrop is the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while! I can’t wait to see someone I know do this in person at their wedding.

      I love the vows backdrop. The image of the script behind them is beautiful in and of itself but then when you realize it’s their vows…too cute!

      I saw a backdrop that was an elaborate chalk drawing on the side of a building recently. It was pretty fantastic.

      I’m helping a friend with her wedding and she absolutely loves the backdrop of stacked blocks decorated in geometric shapes and cool colors. What did you guys use for the blocks? Is it cardboard? The geometrical shapes, is it fabric or painted on? I can’t tell. Looks great though. Thanks for any help you can offer.

        Hi Nick- We didn’t make all of the backdrops, just collected the ideas to share. Event designer and stylist Jesi Haack made the geometric one – you might want to ask her.

    •  You know what is a great motivator? Not wanting to be outdone by your big bro. Cause look who's pulling himself up, so he can keep up  #quincysmilestones #calvinandquincy #lawdhelpme #charlieandcalsroomredo  There were very few baby things I hadn't yet tried by the time I had Quincy but I hadn't really used a sling before. I got my first sling when I was still pregnant with Q and tried it with Calvin, but once Cal was walking he never wanted to be carried. He's far too busy for all that. So Quincy is the first baby I've used a sling with, and I feel like I really missed out with the other two. I had and loved other carriers with them (and still do) but there is just something about the sling that is magical and it is my carrier of choice right now. It is convenient (you can keep it threaded and just throw it on), it is cozy, it doesn't tightly wrap behind my back which always makes me sweaty, and I can nurse while Quincy is in it which has been a lifesaver. I'm actually nursing him in this photo! I'm sharing photos from our recent visit to the pumpkin patch and how I got to do all the things with my family while wearing Quincy in the sling because I didn't have to stay with him in the stroller or go find a place to nurse him. He chilled, ate, and napped in my sling. And because I love it so much I'm teaming up with @mywildbird to give one reader a sling of their choice!

       And just like that, summer is back  Take me back to the fall weather of two days ago! Also, take me back to when this kid slept past 5 am and took naps. For a week now, between 4:30-5:30 am this kid climbs up on our bed over top of me and proceeds to squrim, poke, and annoy me till I get up. Quincy's sleeping till 6 or later FINALLY and now Calvin is waking me up!? And he refused to nap today (again) too. Seriously you guys, he's killin' me. He looks real cute in rain gear but if he does it again tonight he's headed to toddler military school. #sotiredineedanewwordfortired #calvins3rdyear #battlefieldmotherhood  The look you get when your mom puts on some JT for your photoshoot.
