Garden Tea Party Inspiration

Posted on April 23rd, 2012 by annalemberger

Celebrate special moments this spring with an enchanting garden themed tea party. Fragrant flowers, pretty pinks, vintage saucers, and scrumptious petite sweets will add extra charm to a lovely afternoon of tea and conversation. After tea, enjoy a stroll outside or through an indoor botanical garden if the weather isn’t in your favor. You will have your family and friends looking forward to all of your gatherings! Bridal showers, baby showers, and Mother’s Days are all perfect occasions for a charming and intimate afternoon tea. And since Mother’s Day is right around the corner (May 13th), it is time to plan some quality mother-daughter time. Show your appreciation for all of the moms in your life with a heartfelt gift as well! See my suggestions below.

Lighting Up Your Wedding Day

October 21st marks the anniversary of Thomas Edison’s 1879 lighting of the first┬á incandescent light bulb. This first light bulb burned in Edison’s Menlo Park, New Jersey laboratory for almost 14 hours, lighting the way for millions of artificial lights to come. Today, the use of lighting, both artificial and natural, has become somewhat of an art in the bridal industry.

The bride and groom’s seats at the top of the dais are spotlighted, drawing attention to the newlyweds as the two most important people of the day. Lesser players will be seated at the lower seats amid dim, yet romantic candlelight.

Wedding Inspirations: Pretty in Purple

Posted on September 1st, 2010 by Mandy Webster

I love purple, so I had a great time digging through images for a purple themed wedding collage. The hard part was narrowing my choices down to just a few. The trick is to choose a couple of focus items and plan your color scheme around those.

When planning your own purple wedding, it is best to narrow your choices to just a couple of shades of purple. Too many different shades is distracting, as are too many different types of flowers in one place.

Choose no more than three shades of purple for a unified look.

The purple flower girl dress pictured at right was almost the exact same shade as the Embracing Hearts Table Runner and Timeless Table Decoration (also pictured) that I wanted to use for this purple inspired wedding collage.
