Last week we had our M&J Bridal Salon Press Event inside of M&J Trimming and it was such a blast. With guests from the The Knot, Bridal Guide Magazine, Inside Weddings and some of our favorite bloggers we knew we would have to put in a lot of work to make the night perfect. We worked with James Abel Events to completely transform the back of the store and we were very lucky and thankful to have Alpine Creative Group, Sugar Flower Cake Shop, Izze Sparkling Juice, Jenny Yoo Collections, Johnny Gonzalez, Maison Prive and Fantasia Studios sponsor the event. Read more about the event here!
One part of the event that we were all very excited about was the Photo Booth! We got a custom made backdrop, used M&J Bridal Salon headpieces and hats and of course made some of our own props with M&J Trimming.
Hard Stock Paper (Any craft/paper store)
Wooden Sticks ( Any craft/paper store)

Mustashe Steps: Search the internet for paper mustaches(theres a lot) and print out the photos that you like. Then cut out the mustaches and trace them onto the black paper. Cut out those mustaches, embellish them and hot glue them on to the sticks.
Last Step! Make sure you have fun using them at the photo booth!

Your either have to have that special luck at finding the perfect shoes for the half the price of what there worth or you have to spend a fortune. So what better way to get those shoes than to do an easy DIY, by making your own shoe with Swarovski buttons. You can take a plain shoe and make it pop out. Here are some inspirations. We’ve bought a pair of inexpensive white shoes and dressed them up with beautiful Swarovski buttons.

There are so many great reasons for DIY projects, to save money, to create something you can’t find, to re-use something you don’t use, but most importantly to show your creativity and personality. And here’s something that works great anywhere and I mean anywhere. For a wedding or everyday use, this fabric brooch looks great in the hair, accessory, clothing and even your wedding dress.
- 27inches of 50mm Midori Dupioni Silk Ribbon Item# 37302 in Peacock
- 5 Flat Back Pearl Buttons Item# 27592 size 8mm
- 4 inches of 27mm Box Pleated Taffeta Item#00872
- 2 inches 2-Row Rhinestone Blanket Trim Item# 03602
- Glue Gun
- Accessory clip
- Scrap of Felt Fabric
- The length of each material depends on how you want to design your flower brooch. For this particular project. Here is what I did.
- I took a 4” long pleated taffeta and folded ½” on both sides and used the glue gun to attach it to the felt. Make sure you don’t lay it down too straight or it’ll end up looking a little awkward. Slight bend both sides a little and glue it down. Be careful, the glue gun is extremely hot.
- Next I took about 2” of a double row rhinestone trim and glued it on top of the pleated ribbon to cover the ribbons stitches that it came with.
- Next is making the flower.
- For the larger flower, I used about 3/4 of a yard of Midori Dupinoi ribbon. On one end, tie a loose knot. Make it as flat as possible.
- Next lay the ribbon down on a table and with two finger, hold down the knot.
- With the other hand, start flipping the ribbon over one small section at a time. The ribbons should over lap each other as you also turn the ribbon on the table to form a flower. You can make the flower as tight or loose as you would like, but just remember to hold it down so it stays in shape.
4. When you’re complete with the flower, tuck the end down underneath the flower and carefully pick up the flower to glue it down onto the felt. Glue it close to the rhinestone trim.
- Repeat steps a-d for the other two flowers
- When you’re done gluing the entire flower down, glue the loose pearls onto the center of the flower.
- Also glue pieces of the rhinestones along areas where you can visibly see the felt.
- Next, take the scissors and carefully trim the brooch. Be careful not to get too close to the flower and not to trim too far.
- Lastly, glue the accessory clip onto the back of the felt. With this clip, you can add it onto your hair, clothing or anywhere you like.
