English Garden Wedding Inspiration

Posted on September 7th, 2013 by annalemberger

Catch the last, warm rays of summer with an elegant English garden party inspired wedding. Plus, an English garden wedding might just help quell that anxious waiting for the new season of Downton Abbey. Imagine: happy faces of fragrant blossoms line the aisles. Plush, green grass blankets the grounds. More lovely, blushing flowers – rivaled only by the bride – burst out of every corner and detail from the bouquets to the cake.  Rose petals rain down on the new couple as they take their first steps as husband and wife. Delicate floral patterned gowns adorn the guests. Magical. And of course the hats. Don’t forget the over-the-top sun hats and parasols.

The British are especially particular about their gardens; so, to do the English gardening tradition justice, make sure to do your research on the best blooms for late summer and early fall. Try a fragrant perennial like lavender; it’s a great choice that you can use not only in your decor but also in your menu, as a garnish or flavor. Think, lavender cupcakes! For roses that bloom later in the year, go for – what else – an English rose variety.

Comfort and Utility: Favorite things round up

Posted on November 5th, 2012 by annalemberger

Last week was full of apprehension, shaking windows, and relentless rain as I rode out storm Sandy with millions of others. Thankfully, D.C. was spared the full force of Sandy’s wrath – I didn’t even have to break out my flashlight. With D.C. shut down for two days, I had a lot of time to think about the supplies and other essentials I wish I had while hunkered down at home. Take a look at some of my favorite products at KTG.  And to all of our friends and family affected by the storm, we are thinking about you. Stay safe.

Utility

Everyone needs a good multitool or utility knife and a flashlight, especially in an emergency situation. This brilliant multi tool pliers even has a built in light so you can see where you are working!

One of the most essential needs during an emergency is clean drinking water. Days before Sandy, people were buying bottled water faster than the stores could stock the shelves. While I bought a few jugs myself, I also took advantage of our still functioning tap system to fill up jars and bottles, like these portable aluminum water bottles.

Cornucopia of Color: Pantone’s Fall 2012 Color Report

Posted on September 18th, 2012 by annalemberger

There is a magical moment, every year, when I wake up to nature’s color symphony; when leaves make their last stand in a shock of vibrant hues that shout “look at me!” before falling to the earth. Fall is so full of color inspiration it may be hard to know where to turn when choosing the perfect fall wedding colors. Fortunately, the color experts at Pantone have released their Fashion Color Report for Fall 2012 – a great guide for what is trending this season. While some of the usual autumn suspects are included, like Honey Gold, French Roast, Titanium, Tangerine Tango, and Ultramarine Green, there are some unique standouts. Olympian Blue is a bright choice that would pair well with Honey Gold or French Roast. Rhapsody and Pink Flambe are also quite lovely and add a feminine touch to any color scheme. But it is Rose Smoke that tops my favorite color list this fall. It’s like a soothing whisper – barely there, but oh so lovely.

Let love lead the way at your elegant ruby-toned wedding. Nothing says passion and romance quite like deep reds and luxurious fabrics. Have fun with the color by adding a surprising splash of deep ruby into your bridal ensemble. The red bodice on the Sincerity Bridal gown is a unique twist on the traditional white gown while still remaining classic.
