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.

Summer fun with our new color dipped canvas totes

Posted on May 15th, 2013 by annalemberger

So many good things come dipped: chocolate dipped strawberries; apples covered in gooey caramel; carrots in ranch dressing; and those insanely sugary Fun Dip candies I devoured as a kid. I mean, it’s sugar you dip in sugar – in other words, amazing. My proclivity towards dipped goodness extends beyond food to my other love: fashion. So I was thrilled when these Color Dipped Canvas Totes landed in our store.

Spring into Color!

Posted on February 19th, 2013 by annalemberger

The color experts at Pantone have once again put out a decadent palate of color inspiration. The Spring 2013 Color Report brings a wonderful mix of soft hues and surprising bursts of brightness.  Poppy Red is one of my all-time favorite colors, and Greyed Jade is already making an appearance in spring fashion. Overall, the collection feels like a refreshing outdoor walk on a sunny spring day. With a nod to nature, I brought floral and feather elements into this week’s inspiration board.

Real Wedding Inspiration: Lauren & Brian

Posted on December 20th, 2012 by annalemberger

‘Tis the season for giving – which makes this a perfect time to share an amazing story of two newlyweds and their inspiring Give Back Wedding!

Lauren and Brian were married this past July at the Lodge and Spa at Breckenridge in Breckenridge, Colorado. This couple’s special day was full of love and laughter, captured beautifully by Lisa Meeter of Lisa Anne Photography. It’s hard not to be joyful when you know your wedding is making such a difference!  Lauren and Brian knew having a big wedding was important to their loved ones; however, they wanted to make sure that they stayed true to their values as environmentally conscious teachers committed to working with at risk students. And so the “Give Back Wedding” was born. Every detail – from the biodegradable cupcake wrappers to the Colorado wildflower bouquets – gave back, in one way or another, to something this couple cares about:

“Brian and I felt so blessed to have found this love that we wanted to share our love and happiness with the rest of the world. We wanted our love to make a difference in the hearts of others in the same way that it had in our very own.”
