Emerald City New Year’s Eve

Posted on December 28th, 2011 by annalemberger

Ha ha ha. Ho ho ho. And a couple of tra la las! That is how you’ll laugh the night away this New Year’s Eve, like the jolly townspeople of Emerald City. Nothing says glitz and glam like a city iced in sparkling emeralds. While you probably cannot dye your eyes to match your clothes or live in an emerald encrusted palace in the land of Oz, you can incorporate emerald green into a stunning and festive new year’s eve ensemble. I fell in love with this menswear-inspired look featured on Step out of your traditional, barely there party dresses and into an equally flattering and even more daring fitted tuxedo. Break the winter chill by adding warmth and a shock of color with a bright velvet suit coat.  You will still look fierce and feminine in gold stiletto heals. Emerald green and metallic colors create a festive and fun combination to don for New Year’s celebrations.

Color Splash: Solar Power Wedding Inspiration

Posted on December 5th, 2011 by annalemberger

Keep warm this winter or plan ahead for your spring wedding with a sunny yellow color splash. The color experts and trend setters at Pantone have chosen Solar Power as one of the colors for Spring 2012. It is difficult not to smile or feel unloved when surrounded in this warm color. Make the stunning rays of this color truly stand out by pairing with a cooler tone, like silver. Pantone’s “Solar Power” provides more than a color inspiration; go green at your wedding by using solar powered accent lights or by letting natural sunlight illuminate your wedding.

As a Wisconsin girl, I always considered food on a stick a novelty reserved for daring diners at the annual State Fair. Gems like cheesecake, deep fried butter, chocolate covered bacon and deep fried PB & J are just a few of the things fair goers could enjoy skewered on a stick this past summer.

Thankfully, the wedding industry has taken on this “food on a stick” popularity with a bit more class and artistry. Cake pops, cakes on a stick, are popping up in bakeries and weddings everywhere. Read more »
