Trendy Candles

If your looking for something fun and trendy to create for your table displays... look no further! A really simple idea is making your own candle holders. They are easy to create and very affordable!

You can go to any craft store like Ben Franklin and pick up some different types of ribbon in your choice of sizes, textures and colors. Then, look for some simple shaped Votive glass candle holders. While your at it, grab some candles to go into the holders. These can be scented or unscented and in any color! I always enjoy using white since they go with everything!

Now that you have your supplies to make these candle holders, cut the ribbon about two and a half inches long to wrap around the candle holder and glue it! Let it dry for about thirty minutes and then add your candle. PRESTO! A cute, simple and trendy eye catching table display for your event!

Just check out the JESSICA IVY Boutique aqua and brown themed candles I made! These were just to fun to make! Try it out yourself! These will make everyone ask about them and make you the talk of your friends!

VMFA Richmond Magazine Event Goodies

We've been working hard creating some yummy treats for the Artful Wedding Events hosted by Richmond Magazine at the VMFA this coming Monday the 28th. The bags are so pretty in our signature aqua and brown colors but, what's inside is even better! Delicious sugar cookies made from scratch iced in royal icing with sanding aqua sugar.

We wanted to have fun with these and create something that was Summer themed. The lollipop idea came into the picture! So to create these, we used a circle cookie cutter, rolled the dough 1/4" thick and inserted a stick into the cookie to bake into it. Let the cookies cool down for an hour then began pipping the edges to hold the filling of the icing. Once hardened a fun swirly design was added on top and sugar was poured on top to give it a sparkle appearance. FUN!

We look forward to see what you think Monday! Enjoy these treats!

In case you didn't know, the major talk on the streets right now in Richmond, VA on the block of 3200 Franklin and 700 Cleveland is the AMAZING sign by artist/ sculpture Nicholai Jerome of Spartan Studios!

The sign is just an eye catcher! It's MAGNIFICENT! A MUST SEE! When you look at the design, your eyes move with the texture he's created that make it look 3 dimensional. Left to right, right to left. The light bounces off of the sign capturing the intricately placed scroll work on the edges and the Letter that spell out JESSICA IVY BOUTIQUE. The light really brings this sign to life and really makes this sign POP!

This is a one of a kind piece of art by one of the most brilliant upcoming artist that Richmond has to offer! Keep your eye out on this one!
