Royal Nurseries

We all swooned when Kate became a Princess and now it is time for us to gush over an adorable little baby! In honor of Prince George’s arrival last week, we have found some nurseries fit for royalty. While your baby may not be “technically” royal, they are still an incredible addition to your family so enjoy these inspirational nurseries and spread the love! (Images from viktoriiya.hubpages.com)

For your little Princess:

How To Ask Her Parents For Her Hand In Marriage

You’ve found the one! You are both ready for marriage and you know this because you’ve discussed it. Now it’s time to ask her parents for their blessing. What’s the best way to ask or even start the conversation? It depends on your relationship with her folks (and hers for that matter) but here is some pointers that have worked quite well for some of our past clients.

1. Ask in person if it’s an option! Skype is now a perfect alternative to a phone call or letter if you can’t meet them in person. They can see the sincerity on your face.

2.  Simply start the conversation by telling them how much you love their daughter. You don’t have to dive into the question right away but keep in mind they probably have a hunch it’s coming.

3. Tell them why you believe it’s time to take your relationship to the “engagement” stage.

4. If they can keep a secret, you can let them in on your plans to propose– when and where – which can be another “in” with her parents. They will not only feel respected that you asked for their blessing but that you trust them enough and consulted their opinions for your proposal plans!

5. Remember to thank them for all they have done in raising such an incredible daughter. Even if you don’t agree with all their opinions or parental guidance, this will show how you don’t take who she is or what they did for-granted.

 

Best of luck gentlemen! Ultimately if you express your sincerity and love for their daughter, all should go well.

Engagement 101 Mag: Drive-In Lyrical Picnic Proposal Inspiration

Two week we shared The Yes Girls do-it-yourself ideas for the crafty girl in Engagement 101 magazine, and last week we shared the Outdoor Library ideas. So today we are sharing the final proposal from our amazing Engagement 101 shoot, the Drive-In Lyrical Picnic. I have to say, this scene was my favorite. From the lyrical banner to the “redneck wine glasses” to the DIY picture frame everything was just breath-taking. Plus it didn’t hurt that we had a beautiful couple who graciously volunteered to model for us :)

DIY Lyrical Banner:

– Buy a queen size ivory bed sheet

– Cut the hem off of the sides and with measuring tape and a level cut the sheet into three long strips

– Continuing with the level write lyrics to your favorite song line for line

– We chose to highlight certain phrases or words by making them bigger, bold, or in a different color

Lyrical Picture Frame:

– Type up the lyrics to your favorite song on the computer

– Print them off on different pieces of paper in different fonts (make sure you change the sizing too)

– Hand rip the lyrics into smaller pieces

– Use Modge Podge to glue the lyric pieces to the picture frame

– Add a picture of the two of you and voila!
