Stunning Satin Ruffled Placemats For Your Wedding

By Carlise (Carla) Shepperd
table 2.jpg

The reception decor at our vow renewal was lovely and we received compliments on all the little details from the floral napkin rings to ruffled placemats. The placemats were made by my mom and myself. There were so many people asking us where we bought them and since they are not available anywhere, we've made some that you can buy online here  in our Romi And Romeo Etsy shop.


You can buy just one for your cake table because custom sizes are available.


You can use them as placemants for your tables if your budget allows or just the head table so that it stands apart from the rest.


Buy some for your home or add them to your wedding registry.


They are very elegant, very chic and will be a lovely addition to your wedding tables.


There are so many ways you can use these lovely placemats for your next event, whether it be a baby shower or birthday party.


So, if you love them as much as I do, head on over to Romi And Romeo on Etsy right now.

Just 15 Days To Go Until Our Vow Renewal!!

By Carlise (Carla) Shepperd

Oh my gosh! 15 days to go! Just 15 days to go until our March 15th vow renewal! I am sooo excited but was a little stressed because up until Wednesday we didn't have an officiant or bartender because the ones we booked or tried to book fell through. I can do a happy dance now and breathe a sigh of relief now that all our vendors booked!

I still have DIY projects to finish, for example, my brooch bouquet I have not even started on yet but my mommy will be here in two days andI know she will help me get everything done on time. She is super woman.

So, I am just trying to keep calm and enjoy every step of the journey. I am so excited!!

Peacock Feather Boutonnieres From Sol Bijou

By Carlise (Carla) Shepperd

I came across these Peacock Feather Boutonnieres at Sol Bijou and found them to be so chic. They have colors that I adore and the little gold leaf makes them so adorable. As set of 6 for your groomsmen would be $96.00 if you purchase them through Sol Bijou's Etsy shop but if you are up for the challenge, try making them yourself.

A Love Letter To My Husband On Valentine's Day

By Carlise (Carla) Shepperd

It seems like only yesterday that you walked into my life and asked me to be your wife. Since then we‘ve shared so much together and laughed a lot along the way.  I can truly say that you are my dearest friend and I love you with all that I am. I love you…oh, I do. I love your curly hair and your bright eyes. I love your lips and your beautiful smile. I love your skin and your voice. I love your laugh. I love your touch. I love the essence of who you are because it speaks to the essence of who I am.

You’re not perfect nor am I but it’s our flaws that make our love even more special. It’s easy to see that you were created for me and I, for you. You’ve shown me what true love really is and what it feels like to be irreplaceable. I see the love you have for me in your eyes. I feel it in the way you hold me. I hear it loud and clear when you have say goodbye knowing we will be apart for while. You do so much to keep our family comfortable and happy. I couldn’t have asked God for a better man…He gave his best when he sent you. I am so happy to be sharing my life with you and I promise you, my dear Richard, that no matter comes our way, I will love you until my dying day.

Happy Valentine's Day, sweetheart.

Yours forever,
