Bridal Shower Attire

I don't know about you, but I purchased a total of 4 dresses for my bridal shower, and hindsight being 20/20, I'm not satisfied with what I ultimately chose. My shower was in September, at the end of "white season" and I ended up searching EVERYWHERE, coming up empty, and wearing a pale pink. Well, I just stumbled across what could be the perfect summer shower dress and I just had to share (also it costs $29.80 and looks like it will fit someone over the age of 22, despite being from Forever 21).

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours! jack+bean was featured in The Union Hall Times today, check it out - and thank you Bernadette!


We had already told friends and family, and we finally felt good enough to do the big social media announcement so I'm thrilled to share we're expecting our first child in August. This needless to say won't affect my clients' weddings/events/fetes, and has actually been apart of the master plan all along!

We had a good time getting the photo together for this little announcement, though the weather definitely didn't cooperate. We actually bumped into a friend in our neighborhood on the way to our car with the 3 balloon (we never bump into ANYONE), and we basically mumbled something about going to a small child's birthday party and went on our way. Also as soon as you walk outside in -5 degree Pittsburgh weather with wind, balloons deflate. Cool. Here are some of our outtakes to prove to you we aren't actually photogenic people and we took like 70 photos to get one that worked. Fun times!

Good News!

The jack+bean Etsy shop is officially open for business! I've done a bit of a "soft" opening until I get caught up on the rest of my orders, so only one thing is listed for now, but it's definitely a favorite! Check out the shop if you have a minute, and you can always visit it using the "Events + Stationery Services" link in the navigation!
