Paper Gems Co.

Hello beauties! We have a new feature today with Paper Gems Co. which we are super excited to share with you! We have been following them on IG and just adore what they do!

Here is a little sneak peek of our favorite designs we pulled from their account to show you!

We love the attention to detail. The way each bottle can be customizable! You can add each of your bridesmaids names to her own bottle, and gift them to your girls on your Wedding day! They are super cute for photo opps too!

Your Wedding photographer will love to get some awesome shots of you and your gals poppin bottles! We can picture it now. We also love the mini bottles too for bridesmaids gifts. 

These are overall wonderful presents and gifts to give for any occasion, birthday or holiday!

We can’t wait to see our upcoming Brides use them!

CBWP Summer Solstice 2019: First Day of Summer

Today was the first day of Summer, so why not kick it off with some fun, vibrant Summer colors!

We decided to mix it up and go all out! We love mix matching plates and playing around with colors! Especially during the summertime. We got the inspiration, while waking around Laguna Beach, and seeing all the beautiful flowers that were in full bloom.

We then grabbed a few pieces from our warehouse, bought some new items at HomeGoods, and went to work.

We staged this to give you some fun inspo for a Summer vibe, Bridal Brunch, Bridal Shower or even, the morning before your Dream day!

We love to incorporate color blocking, mix matched patterns, Good China and lavish tones! Check it out! Let us know what you think. Comment below. We would love to hear from you!
