As I pack my DIY wedding projects, Etsy items, and mine and my fiance's attire a special little often forgotten item comes to mind... the garter!! My garter is blue and my soon-to-be groom caught it 5 years ago at my Aunt's wedding. I am typically not one for traditions but the garter belt and something "old, new, borrowed and blue" found their way into my wedding plans because I think they're fun! If you decide to include a garter into your complete wedding day look here is a great place to start looking.

thepinkbirdhouse is an Etsy shop run by Deborah and she has always loved vintage and silk ribbons, and soon a collection started to grow. Things are beautiful to collect, but even more beautiful when they can be made into something exquisite. And so thepinkbirdhouse garter shop was born! Deborah loves the idea that brides have purchased one of her handmade garters and allowed that little bit of silk satin to be a part of such a special day in their lives. It is a true pleasure for her to think of that! She not only have a love of all things silk, especially ribbons, but of vintage items and in particular vintage laces. Knowing that they are old yet still in such wonderful new condition is a lovely thought for Deborah. Their quality is unsurpassed and she likes to bring them together with the silk satin ribbons to create unique and one of a kind garters. With vintage lace of a limited-supply nature, Deborah finds it nice to be able to create only so many of one design. So for the bride that is looking for something truly different, something that not hundreds of others have worn before her, thepinkbirdhouse shop is the place to search for that one special garter!

As you can see, Deborah also makes garters for all occasions since she is very influenced by the lovely ones that the Flapper girls wore in the 1920's. Those colorful, fun garters are very often Deborah's inspiration for garter sets in bright flashy colors, or sweet pale pastels, and embellished with either Flapper buttons, or decorated with Victorian Ribbonwork roses and blossoms. Ribbonwork, or the art of fashioning roses and flowers out of ribbons is another passion of Deborah's
