You've arrived at the stop for paper goods, flowers, calligraphy, and even cakes.

This is a place for brides that want a bit of frill for the cost of a cheap thrill.

You're a stylish bride on an unforgiving budget, and I'm here to help you work within it and squeeze some pretty out of it. 

You are a                  bride.

Flowers + Bouquets

All flowers are artificial. They are long-lasting and make a wonderful ornamental keepsake. Contact me to go over what kind of bouquet you're looking for and I can build a quote for you. Bouquet shape offerings: posies, round, and pageant. 


Cakes + More

I offer small cakes with simple decorations and a few flavor options.

I can also make a dummy cake (styrofoam cake just for table decoration). Local pick-up in Portland Metro Area only.

Vivian Johnston - Designer + Maker

I am here to do all your bidding and make your wishes come to life.

Ever since I was a little girl, I kept a binder of tear-outs from bridal magazines and kept adding to it into my grown up years. That binder became pretty fat over the years as you can imagine. I've seen the trends that have come and gone, yet I love everything about weddings. I've always been a DIY gal and wanted full control of all the details. Naturally, I became a designer.

I've always wanted to be in the wedding industry—it's one thing I'm never sick of. I studied a bit of event/wedding design through the LWPI program, took cake decorating classes as well as floral design workshops, and taught myself calligraphy. I have plenty of experience in wedding stationery, as I was a designer at Wedding Paper Divas for a few years. The one thing I noticed was missing in this big industry, is a market for brides who wanted nice things, but always had a steep price tag on it. I am here for the budget bride. I was inspired by the show Cheapest Weddings on Netflix and watching everything go down like a train wreck—I thought, there are brides who need help out there that want the nice things, but the struggle bus was real. The only thing I ask of you is to please be mindful that budget does lend itself to some limitations, so I can't promise the moon, but I promise there will be some magic.
