This week's interview features Ashley Dernick and Patty DePierri of Little Birdie Boutique located in Houston, Texas.
Tell us a little about yourself:
We are a mother-daughter creative team with a main focus of providing unique event favors and gifts. We truly believe that thoughtful details can make a wedding a memorable event for all!
What special things do you create for weddings?
We try to create shop items that will appeal to brides with a variety of styles as well as fit into today's trends. This includes favor boxes, eco friendly favors, modern favors and favors with a vintage flair.
Who or what sparked your interest in making wedding-related items?
We realized our love for favors when we were planning my older sister's wedding a few years ago. We had so much fun coming up with a favor for her wedding that we started offering to make favors for all the weddings and showers of our family and friends!
What is a little known fact, or something unique about your work that is interesting?
Something fun about our designs is that when we are working on a new item we have to run it by my other sister to make sure we get another opinion! She has the final say so! It is her way of being involved with the shop :-)
If you are married, what’s the one thing you wish you had for your wedding that you didn’t?
The on thing I wish I had for my wedding was a professional photographer! I had a college friend take the pictures and she did a nice job but nothing beats an experienced professional.
What is your favorite wedding song?
My favorite wedding song is Keith Urban "Memories of Us"
What is your favorite part of the wedding journey?
My favorite part of the wedding journey is the look on the groom's face when he sees his beautiful Bride walking down the aisle!
What advice can you share for all the brides getting married this year?
My advice for brides is to have a wedding coordinator!
What is your perfect honeymoon spot?
We went to London on our honeymoon and it was fantastic! It was my first time out the states and so it was extra special!
If you could pick anyone famous that would purchase your items for their wedding, who would they be?
Martha Stewart :-)
If you could choose 1 item from your shop that you wish every bride could have, what would it be?
Probably the vintage-inspired swizzle stick favor. It is so pretty!
