Anyone who knows me well knows that I absolutely LOVE ribbon! My addiction has been fed over the years with countless trips to scrapbook and craft stores. Oh how I could just spend hours in the ribbon sections and aisles while the wheels in my brain spin with ideas. When I was pregnant with Lauren I sat at the dining room table for days pulling outfits from her closet to make coordinating bows for her to wear. I even sat for hours each night tying ribbon around a 6 foot long piece of welting to make a ribbon swag for her nursery. All the while my husband sat watching me shaking his head. I am sure the words going through his mind were, “What is she up to now?”
When I decided to start manufacturing bows, it was no shock to my friends and family. I really enjoy designing and creating them so why not start a bow line? Does this mean I get to be surrounded with endless ribbon choices? Then I am IN! So the journey begins. After finding a ribbon manufacturer, I sent them bows I wanted re-created, they made samples and now the choices begin. Oh the choices! They are overwhelming at times, but I am certainly not complaining.
Since I have long used ribbon for adding touches of detail, I now use my bows as well. They add such a great pop of color and whimsy. They look so cute clipped to a lollipop stick as a cupcake topper or clipped just under the cupcake topper. I did this at Lauren’s 5th birthday party and all the little girls had such a good time picking a bow of their choice. I also put them on cake stands, plates and trays for a fun touch next to all the goodies I am serving. If you are anything like me, cnce you start placing them here and there you won’t want to stop. It is a good thing I have two girls!
I have a great selection of bows to offer you and will be adding a much larger variety in the next week to ten days. More sizes, more colors, more designs are coming soon. Please visit my Etsy Shop today to see some of what I have now. I am getting ready to relaunch my boutique website as well as a brand new site for my newest division of event design and planning so please check back with often to see all the new. There are some big changes coming!
