2010 in Review – New Products

We have been staying busy at RBK Creations this year. 2010 was a good year! Over the next few days (the last days of December, how is this possible!) I will be doing a recap of the year.

I thought I would start with our new items of 2010. I am so glad we can keep creating new items for the home and of course for weddings. Here are some of the latest items!


We have been working on a wide range of headband styles throughout the whole year.

 This style was created to match a full set of Felt Bouquets. It is a great size for a flower girl who is under age 3 or so!

We have a great line of satin headbands. This is our carnation style of flower. For the holidays we teamed up with the awesome Brandi Thompson Photography and created a headband JUST for her giveaway. It was the same color scheme as her logo. There were 4 giveaways from Nov-Dec. The photo on the right was also taken by her (and modeled by her!)


This is one of our newest items! We had a custom request for a garter to match a bouquet. I took on the challenge and love the final product!

This is the original garter. The wedding is on New Year’s Eve and a very romantic feel to it! Lace, feathers, pearls and rhinestones!

This is the first of the garters to be available in the shop. It is a high quality Tiffany Blue Satin, Vintage lace and a fluffy organza button flower to match!

Shoe Clips

This is another product we have been working on for some time now! I was doing the clips by request only for a couple of months but now I have a few available in the store.

 I just love the sunny yellow color of these clips! A nice bit of sparkle in the middle. The satin is a very heavy/high quality material. I had a very limited amount of this. Enough to make the shoe clips and a matching hair clip

This is a great plum/black combo. The plum satin has a great pattern on it including dragons! It was a great find and I wish I bought more of it!

Cuff links and Tie Tacks

You can’t forget about the groom and other men in the wedding party! We recently released the line of cuff links and tie tacks.


Flower Girl Baskets

We have expanded our line of flower girl baskets. Here are a few we have done over the past year.

The possibilities are truly endless!

This is the latest one we finished. I just love the fun, bright colors. And the polka dots!

Here are a few other items that are new for RBK Creations in 2010.

We have a bunch more in the works too. I have a feeling 2011 will be a great year also! Check back tomorrow for our Recap and Thanks to those who featured us in 2010!

Victorian Christmas Wedding – A photo shoot with Kio Kreations

Hi everyone! I do exist. It has been a crazy couple of months full of secret projects, custom bridal orders and all around a lot of work! Sometimes the two full-time jobs wear me a bit thin!

I am back at full force and excited to share my latest project with Kio Kreations (flowers and styling) and Tara Etrheim Photography! This shoot also featured some delicious goodies from FudgeU (What a fun name by the way!) and was at the Arrowhead Golf Club up in the suburbs of Chicago.

The setting focuses on the flowers as well as handmade, DIY projects that you can recreate at home for the holidays or for a Christmas themed wedding. This setting is really versatile for either occasion!

The Christmas Tablescape and the DIY projects were featured earlier this morning on Elizabeth Anne Designs! Go check out Ami’s post and see all of the Printable Instructions.

I am going to share a few of my favorite photos from the shoot. I just love working with these ladies!

As always, the bouquet Kristen created is just divine. It says Christmas without screaming it with the typical Christmas greenery. I created some satin flowers and button stems for her to incorporate.

Everythign was so detailed! One of the button stems adorns the handle of the bouquet along with some ribbons and pins.

All of the deep reds are so beautiful. This centerpiece would look great at a wedding or in the center of your table on Christmas Day!

The card holder fits into the Victorian Wedding theme so well. The vintage postcards were such a great touch! There are instructions available for this project too!

The overall table scape is so rich and warm! The venue had a Christmas Tree already set up and it added a nice touch to the overall feel of the shoot.

This item is multi-purpose, which I love! It can start out by being a napkin ring on your place setting. Then, each guest (wedding or family member at Christmas dinner) can take it home and use it as a decoration on their tree!

This boutonniere may be my favorite piece Kristen created for the shoot. It just makes me smile! And against the dark red background…Love!

I will end the post with one last photo of the bouquet (and boutonniere). Gorgeous!

Thank you Kristen, Tara, Arrowhead Gold Club and FudgeU! What a successful, inspiring shoot!

Make sure you check out the post over at Elizabeth Anne Designs and grab the Instruction sheets for the DIY projects. Go ahead and try them out and let me know how it goes! Would love to see what everyone creates!

Keep an eye out in the next month or so! Kristen and I will have another AMAZING shoot to show you as well as two new items from RBK Creations!

October in Review

We have been working away on bridal orders. We booked a lot of orders for October weddings and as of yesterday, we shipped out the last one for the month! It was a very busy month. I didn’t know that many people got married in October. Learn something new every day!

Each Monday I take my big blue Ikea re-useable bag to work and ship off box after box. I have not had a chance to post my usual weekend updates.

Here are a few photos of the past couple of weeks.

Top: A start of a great set of bouquets. This is the bride bouquet and it has black, pewter grey and white satin. It is dark yet very elegant.
Bottom, L to R: 1. Fall colored Felt Boutonnieres, we had a lot of fall colors to work with this year!
2. A custom set of button cuff links. A very neutral color combination for every day wear, and a super sweet anniversary gift!
3. Another felt fall order. This had fun pops of purple, skulls, leaves and so much more.

Top: 1. I have had a lot of orders for pillows lately. They are a lot of fun to make. This specific one has a mix of purple ribbon and felt flowers.
2. Pink Pink Pink! We are continuing to make pink items for October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This bouquet has been re-created a lot and still a favorite.
3. A fun set of bouquets for a Vegas wedding on Halloween. The colors are so bright and fun

An RBK Creations Giveaway – Support Susan G Komen!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Here at RBK Creations, we have decided to make a donation to the Susan G Komen Foundation, the Dallas affilliate to be exact! It is our part of such an awesome, large effort to find a cure as well as spread awareness.

In 2009 alone, the Dallas County affilliate raised more than $2.4 million! The Dallas group is very active in their fundraising and doing their part; it is  very inspiring!

Here is the breakdown of how the money is used:

A minimum of 25% is used for the support of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Award and Research Grand Program. This is the portion that goes to the research that will hopefully one day lead to a cure.

While 25% seems small, it is a large amount of money that is definitely working toward a common goal. The remaining 75% goes to educational and service efforts. I really think this is the most important part of the foundation and what ends up being the most beneficial thing they can do. Over the past few years I have seen more and more posters, commercials, events, etc that are educating people and truly making them aware of breast cancer. I keep hearing a radio advert that states 1 in 7 women will end up getting breast cancer. This has definitely stuck in my head. If you hear 1 in 100 that may not hit as hard but 1 in 7!! Wow, we really need to keep working to find a cure.

While educating women about breast cancer is a big part of the 75% of the raised funs, it also goes to fund screenings and treatment for individuals in the Dallas area who would otherwise not be able to afford it. Rock on Dallas for keeping it local and helping out people close to home that need it!

Will you do your part to help?

Along with our donation this year (40% of pink/specially marked item sales in the shop), we are hosting a GIVEAWAY!

We will be giving away some great pink items. The winner will receive the following:

12 Stem Button Bouquet arrangement, great for your desk or table centerpiece.

1 Set of Pink Button Bobby Pins

1 Satin and Button Hair Clip, in Pink of course

1 Set of Button Magnets

It will definitely be a goodie box of pink-button-awesomeness!!!!!

How to enter? Read below!
(Make sure you correctly fill out your email address and name on each entry. This is the only way I have to get in touch with the winner!!)

1. Leave a comment below with ways you plan on supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month. (Maybe you are planning to donate on your own, participate in a race, spread awareness or even buying something pink from RBK! This doesn’t have to be monetary support, sometimes telling someone to go get a screening is all it takes to save a life!)

Want Extra Entries?!?!?! Here are a few ways to get more entries (Leave an additional comment for each entry)

1. Become a Fan on Facebook

2. Become a Follower on Twitter

3. Purchase a Pink Item from the shop

If you already follow us on twitter, or you already are a Facebook fan, Excellent and Thank you!! Just leave a comment saying that you are.

The value of the box of pink-button-awesomeness is $54.00

Enter to win until 12:00 Noon CST November 1, 2010. The winner will be announced by 5pm CST on Nov. 1st. The winner has 48 hours to reply to the email sent to them. If they do not respond, a new winner will be drawn. Good Luck and thank you for your help in supporting such a great cause!
