Did you see the music video Hymn for the Weekend ? Beyonce henna was so beautiful we had to do an homage I see this becoming a popular design, so I figured we would start practicing . Any other henna artists excited?  I wonder what show we will get to see for the Beyonce and Coldplay Superbowl halftime show.

If you would like to make your appointment to get a henna tattoo, Beyonce henna style, send me an email  to set up your private appointment.

Want to know more? Read this quick history of Henna:

Henna is an all natural dye for the skin. Henna is extracted from the Lawsonia inermis tree by drying and grinding leaves and stems. The greenish powder, when mixed with an lemon juice, makes a temporary red, brown, or orange design on a porous surface. Indian families use henna in ritual skin painting, called Mehndi, for birth and marriage celebrations. Arabic and Turkish cultures also use henna. Western cultures have adopted henna to make temporary tattoos and organic hair dye. The Lawsonia inermis grows in hot, arid regions like North Africa and India. For centuries, people ground the foliage of the plant into a powder to dye cloth and skin. The strong pigment, lawsone, actually temporarily stains the skin. The dye is a dark pigment, but does not alter the surface permanently.

Sangeet Henna Artist Michigan

Sangeet Henna Artist Michigan

Oh boy have I had such a fun summer! So many of you have had excellent henna parties all across the state of Michigan and I and Lisse have been able to attend as your henna artists. Lisse and I have both travelled to Traverse City and Cadillac Michigan for different events : a henna workshop at the Traverse City Library  , two graduation parties and a few corporate events. I have been to Canton, Royal Oak, Troy and Rochester Hills for many Michigan high school grads this summer and Lisse has been to Saline, Ann Arbor, and Dexter for birthday parties and girls nights. My henna studio in Ypsilanti has been buzzing with private appointments all season. We thank you for such an amazing Summer and are looking forward to a great Autumn.

This past week I did two henna parties for the same family, who previously had me as their henna artist for their son’s wedding two years ago in Cincinnati. Now it was the daughter’s turn to be married, and I have to say how thrilled I was to be working for this great, warm, friendly and super fun family again. On Wednesday was the bride’s mehndi party for her closest friends, aunties and family members. I was overwhelmed at how much love and joy was in the room! I also got to meet a few new ladies, including Monika who’s musing blog is over at Quibbling : Observations of the World Around Me - if you like to take a deep observational look at the ordinary, check her work out.

On Friday was the Sangeet at the Eagle Crest Marriott in Ypsilanti. A Sangeet is a party the day before an Indian wedding, filled with fun presentations, dances, speeches, and games put on by the bride and groom’s family and friends. I always have a great time attending a Sangeet as a henna artist because you get to see the fun and silly side of the families. Not to mention the amazing color and decorations! The decorations were done by the ladies at JDV Events . Go look at their AMAZING gallery of weddings including their traditional weddings as well as their fusion weddings – so lovely. I snagged some pictures at the Sangeet this weekend. I was set up in this colorful jewel-toned lounge for henna.

I also got a few photos of the henna tattoos from two days before that were done at the Mehndi party. It’s rare when I see designs after they have walked away! Such is the life for henna artist Michigan .

And of course, no Indian wedding post would be complete without seeing the bride’s mehndi ! I was so lucky I got to spend so much time doing this lovely bride’s henna because she is such a loved person by her friends and family, and I can see why!

She wanted traditional henna, fitting for a bride.

A lovely bride from this weekend in Novi. She chose lovely henna designs for her engagement ceremony henna. She wanted traditional Indian style henna with paisleys for the top of the hands and mandalas with negative space for the palms.

I just couldn’t get over that hand embroidered pattern on her dress!

As promised, here are the henna party pictures from the 2-day event for a great bride. I really enjoyed meeting all her family – traveling from all over the world from San Francisco, CA  to Brooklyn, NY to Frankfort, Denmark ! The second day’s event was held at the lovely Dearborn Inn in Dearborn, Michigan.

It’s not often I am around to see the bridal henna stain the next day but since I was, I made sure to get a picture of her henna 24 hours after it was applied.

Breakfast at Tiffanys Themed Bachelorette Party DIY

Posted by on Nov 25, 2013 in art, Crafts, Weddings | 0 comments

Tiffanys Themed Bachelorette Party

Hello everyone! If you have been wondering why I have been pretty silent these past few weeks is because I have been in my studio preparing to throw my sister’s Breakfast at Tiffanys themed bachelorette party . I have been planning this party for 3 months which game me a good amount of time to devote to all the DIY touches . We had about 15 ladies that came and we all had so much fun! I can’t share all the details since it was a BACHELORETTE party, but it’s safe to say we all had a rowdy time ;-)   We stayed at the Marriott  suite here in Ypsilanti and  had a car service drive us to The Wurst Bar for a very special Drag Queen Bingo that I arranged. Then we headed back to the suite for party games, dessert, drinks & more entertainment.  The Tiffany’s party theme was so much fun to add fun touches to.

 

Here are the pictures I can share:

I assembled each of those little Tiffany blue favor boxes, wrapped ribbon and tied them. Inside were rings from Wholesale Fashion Square  that everyone wore . A party favor that everyone can wear and enjoy after the party is really important . The 4 Tiffany blue champagne flutes filled with white Jordan Almonds.

I added edible luster powder & pearls to the cupcakes and desserts.  I also added those lovely diamonds to every table surface . The cupcake toppers I made with my handy circle cutters and printed some icons I made in Photoshop off the computer, glued them together with a blue toothpick in between them and viola!

Henna for Weddings

Posted by on Jun 13, 2013 in Henna, mehndi traditional, Private appointments, Weddings | 0 comments

The importance of henna for weddings, especially Indian weddings, doesn’t just stop at the bridal henna design. The mother of the bride and sister of the bride’s henna needs to be very special, too. Often time the bride’s mother and sister will come to my henna salon the day before before the official Mehndi party and have their henna applied so that their stain has already developed by the time of the henna party. Today the mother and sister came in to the salon because they wanted more elaborate henna designs than time would allow for tomorrow when we have 70 guests to henna-up at the Mehndi party. The bride is also getting married in Troy, Michigan with the reception the next day in Ohio.

Here are pictures of the henna for the weddings :

Hello! Yesterday I did henna for a mehndi party in Livonia, Michigan and wedding henna designs for a lovely bride. I worked with the bride on her arm and feet designs via email since she lives in Georgia. She did come into the henna salon for a wedding henna trial and consultation when she travelled to Michigan earlier this year. I was very happy with her henna design choices. Here are the pictures of her wedding henna :

Another LOVELY pair of Dear Golden shoes..

Posted by on Apr 8, 2013 in accessories, clothing, Weddings | 0 comments

Ladies *(and gentlemen if there are gentlemen that peruse this blog), I once again have found an AMAZING pair of shoes from my favorite vintage shop: Dear Golden here in Ypsilanti. Some of you may remember these shoes I bought for a wedding. I now am IN the wedding of a great friend and we were tasked with finding our own bridesmaid dress, shoes etc. and I was jazzed for the opportunity. The only perimeters was it needed to be a pastel sundress. Any pattern, brand or color choice was up to us as long as it fell into the pastel/sundress category. When my friend told us the requirements my brain was like: “You mean, I get to be apart of your big day and you’re giving me an excuse to buy a dress I’ll actually WEAR AGAIN??!?… OKAY!”

dear golden, ypsilanti, michigan vintage shop

Soooo. what did I do? Of course I directed myself to contact my go-to  lady team of “people who let me buy their lovely items” : THREADBEAT  and Dear Golden .    Rebecca Tanner-Russell , the wonder woman behind THREADBEAT  created a beautifully detailed sundress for me to wear in the wedding. (You’ll have to wait for pictures of that)  After the dress arrived and fit perfectly, I found the necklace I’ll be wearing at a cute resale shop in Grand Rapids for $6!

After that, I set my sights on Dear Golden for my shoes. Shoes are always tough for me to buy for a few reasons:

1. I don’t like to spend a lot of money on shoes

2. I need COMFORTABLE shoes

3. I would like them to be well made

4. I don’t like to support mass made shoes

5. I’d like them to be somewhat stylish

(Do you see how #s 2-5 contradict with #1??? yeah, so now you know why it’s tough)

 

Annnyways, all of this to say why I am very ,very happy with my new (to me) Italian leather janes

pink janes, dear golden, vintage shop, ypsilanti

mmmmm…. shoes

 

 

YAY! I’ll post pictures of the complete outfit when they all come together in a perfect harmony.

For bridal packages, a free bridal henna sample is always included.

Here are the photos for the Indian henna party in Traverse City, Michigan.

Also, I really love Traverse City and eating at Amical – one of my favorite restaurants.

Indian Bridal Henna Michigan – Mehndi Party

Hello! I just got back from my trip to KawKawlin, Michigan  to do Indian Bridal Henna for a very sweet bride whose destination wedding is to Jamaica. She wanted elaborate Indian mehndi from her elbows to finger tips on the palm side and elaborate but less intricate design on the back of her hands. She also wanted to incorporate the peacock in her design. I also did her feet with pretty flowers and paisleys. I love the way it came out! I hope you like it, too.
