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.

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 »

Wedding Roundup: Country Western Inspiration Board

Posted on November 12th, 2011 by annalemberger

Get out those lassos and roundup your man because it is high time for a perfectly rugged country western wedding. Horseshoe details display the luck you have had in love. The groom will look handsome in a stetson and string tie while the bride and bridesmaids stomp down the aisle in cowboy boots. Nothing says country western like a roaring barn dance. Book a live Rockabilly or Bluegrass band to make sure the line dancing lasts long into the night.

After parties are hugely popular right now. Jump on this wedding trend and do not let the party stop once the music does. Invite your guests to rest their feet around a campfire and make sticky sweet s’mores. Spread out blankets and screen an outdoor film like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
