It was a busy wedding weekend for us! We covered some walls and decorated a ceiling at Breese Legion for Haley and Cole.
Then we traveled to Lake of the Ozarks for Kayla and Tyler where we decorated and coordinated the event! Such a fun wedding!!
We wish both couples a lifetime of happiness!!


Come on out for music at the patio tonight from 7-10 from Doc Reitz!


Happy Thursday! We have been thinking about doing a post a few times a week of different featured items from our store to show you all what we have. Is this something you would be interested in?

We just got this fun game in the other day! It’s like Uno but revamped a little. It comes with a deck of cards and 4 unbreakable shot glasses.

We do all things balloons.. walls, arches, table centerpieces, yard decor or any other type of balloons you need.
Wreaths, centerpieces, wood rounds, door hangers and all other decor items are made daily at the shop. Not only do we make these but we hold classes so others can enjoy creating as well.
Custom wood products are expanding for us! Customized ornaments, cutting boards, 3 d signs and for weddings, signs, cake toppers etc.. We have 2 machines that allow us to do so much!
We can do most vinyl projects from shirts to signs to personalization of almost anything.

Happy Wednesday! It’s amazing how two wreaths can have the same sign, mesh and ribbons but yet still look different at the end product 😍 We made these two wreaths yesterday. The one with a bow is a pancake wreath for those with storm doors or just wanting something a little smaller and the other is a bigger wreath for those who like more full ones!

If you have a storm door and have always thought that you couldn’t have a wreath because it wouldn’t fit, don’t worry we have something for you!

Finished up some wreaths that Brian started before he left for vacation and also finished a door hanger! My goal has been to finish at least one new thing a day and I think we are doing a pretty good job of that so far!

Tuesday September 6th- Centerpieces
Tuesday September 13th- Door Hangers
Thursday September 22nd- Mesh Wreaths
Tuesday September 27th- Rounds

With the door hanger class, we will be offering wreath sizes as well. If you would like to do the wreath size you could use it as your sign for the mesh wreath class the following week! If you have any questions please let us know!


We’ve made it midway through the week! Our September class list will be posted this afternoon 😊 We have what classes we are doing for September picked out already but what are some classes you would like to see or attend this year?
