My Sweet Angel (for a day)

This past Saturday was my daughter's First Communion.  I still had my dress from when I celebrated First Communion and it fit Charlotte perfectly, so we decided she would wear it.  It was cute, and in great shape for a 33 year old dress.  But, it was a little simple.

 See.  It is a sweet little eyelet lace dress, nothing too fancy, but has some pretty detailing.  So, I decided to make some cute accessories to dress it up and personalize it.

I used the largest flowers from the Pretties Kit (#109114), the Filigree Designer Brads (#112577), the pink gem brads from the Circle Fire Brad collection (#109110), and the Pretty in Pink Corduroy Buttons (#117681) to fancy up some wide satin ribbon for a sash.  To make a simple headband stand out as something special I used the same flowers (with the smaller size embellishments) but first I wrapped the headband in our Pretty in Pink 5/8" satin ribbon (#117289).

Don't they look beautiful just sitting on my table?  Wanna see them make a special dress even better?

I am so pleased with the way this turned out.  Charlotte looked and felt so special, being able to wear something that was mine on a special day, and  having it personalized and unique with the addition of the flowers really completed the day.

Thanks for stopping by.
