Big news for Over the Top Studios, one of my wedding toppers will be featured in Seattle Bride June/July issue. Kelley Moore, entertainment and lifestyle expert, has chosen the topper for her own reception and will feature it in the magazine. Kelley made her final selection at the Common FolkBridal Event last Saturday where she had plenty to choose from. Kelley has a definite look she is going for, I can't wait to see the final shots. It was so fun to watch her stage the shots before hand and I think they are going to be fabulous! Of course I am going to run out and buy every issue I can get my hands on. But wait, it gets better: Kelley does a lifestyle segment for King 5 Morning News on KONG, in addition to having her own event design and production company. She will be doing a segment this Friday morning, April 24th, where she will be featuring my latest creation - a Kentucky Derby Hat! Check out the Video Here. Kelley will be featuring it as the centerpiece for the party. Okay, my Tivo will be ready for this one. It will probably only be on for a minute and I don't know what will be said exactly but just seeing it on TV is going to be surreal.
It has been about 2 months since I decided to pursue making a real business of "Over the Top Studios" and it has been lots of hard work but tons of fun. I have had the opportunity to meet lots of interesting people and friendly shop owners. Being picked for Seattle Bride and for a segment on King 5 is icing on the cake. I just had to share this good news with all of you who have been supporting me the last couple of months through my blog and in the stores.
So since it will only be on for a few minutes I will give you a sneak peak. I also have a shot of the topper Kelley chose for her reception. By the way, I don't think it is actually going on a cake as much as as a centerpiece. See, cake toppers are great as centerpieces and gifts or on the top of cupcakes. Hint: More info on that in coming weeks!
The front of the hat. The hat is styled after the old English riding hats women used to wear. I didn't want to do the traditional big straw hat. I couldn't find a hat to alter so I made one. I made a pattern from a modified New Years Eve top hat I had. The paper and ribbon are Midori. The feathers on the side are vintage and the flowers are hand made.
From the side. Ostrich feathers, fans and glitter.
I love this horse pin. Can you believe I found it in the throw away bin at the Goodwill!
The Wedding Topper which will appear in Seattle Bride. I love the feel of this piece. It is very modern yet romantic.
