We’ve been doing quite a bit of decorating to the living room and hallway over the last few months. I’m really excited about all the new little details. Originally the husband and I had planned on hanging the picture below from Mexico in our master bedroom. When we ended up going with the red accent wall instead of the gray one the picture no longer would do in the bedroom. Since we still loved the memories of the trips we’ve taken to Ixtapa and the picture itself I was confident we would find a place for it eventually.
A few weeks ago I threw my friend a baby shower and in an effort to set the house up for the party I moved the big comfy chair from the living room nook to where we placed the Christmas tree this year. I really liked how the new chair placement no only added one more place to sit near the couch, but also made the living room area feel more cozy! The only problem was now the nook was pretty much empty. The side table was still there, but it just wasn’t/isn’t enough to fill the space. The space needs some wall art as well as piece(s) of furniture.
FINALLY we had found a place for our sunset photo!! After going back and forth between having the photo as a print and framed or a canvas wrap we eventually decided upon a canvas for the sunset photo. With some help from the rents I decided upon the size (36 x 24) and ordered it from My Publisher. The best part was My Publisher was having a sale so we got 40% off the canvas wrap! Within a week the canvas wrap arrived at our front door. One hook and a level later we were in business!!
Now all we need is the matching sideboard to our wine rack and dining table. Once we put the sideboard in this little nook it will be complete. Please Crate and Barrel send us a coupon so we can get a discount on our sideboard!!!
What do you think of the canvas wrap??

A few weeks ago we went to a friend’s beach themed wedding. She had EVERY detail covered. Knowing the amount of time and effort even small details take I can’t even imagine how many hours my friend put into everything for her wedding.
At her bachelorette party she mentioned they were going to have a Photo Booth at the wedding. I had been to a wedding last year with a photo booth and loved it. At the last wedding I had taken pictures with friends, but by the time the husband and I made it to the booth it was closed. Total pout! So this time I was determined to get a photo booth picture with my lovely husband.
After quickly locating the photo booth during cocktail hour I noticed a poster board. On the posterboard there were a few photobooth pictures of my friend and (now) husband from other weddings. She had the photo booth picture strip size increased and then added some cute text about taking pictures in the booth. I wish I had taken a picture of the poster board to show you exactly what it looked liked.
It took us the first two shots to understand where to look and how the booth worked. You would think two grown adults could successfully take pictures, but I guess we aren’t coordinated enough hahaha. Here’s how our pictures came out:
See what I mean? The first two we are a little caught off guard. When we sat down at the table in the reception room we found these cute frames to put our photobooth picture into.
Each frame had a message from the bride and groom. On the back there was a clear label with our name on it so we knew which frame was ours.Such a cute detail! I just love the message and idea to send each guest home with a frame. Check it out!
And can you believe it … each one was hand signed by the bride and groom! I told you this bride had every detail covered! :)
The cost of the frames seem pretty reasonable. I did a little Googling and found a number of places like this one. There are many places that sell the perfect size frames for photobooth picture strips.
Have you seen this tidbit at a wedding before?
Happy wedding planning!!
