Apothecary Jars... a MUST have

Apothecary Jars are my FAVORITE obsession!
This fun trend, is a Fall MUST have!
They are such an easy accessory to any event,
and there are a million ideas for design usage:candy, nuts, flowers, fruit, potpourri, sand, seashells, marbles, soaps, buttons, favorite collectibles, fall leaves, rocks, gems, live plants
{you could even turn them into mini terrariums}.
These simple accents deliver a HUGE IMPACT!

The Importance of Lighting

Lighting is one of the most important things you can do to create a gorgeous reception!
Showcase stunning floral arrangements, warm up a cool room to create flattering skin tones, or simply light the center of a table while keeping the guests in candlelight. These are just a few of the benefits of lighting.

In addition, your photos will look terrific when you have great light. Keep it beautiful during the cocktail hour & dinner... don’t be afraid to create a great lighting atmosphere on the dance floor later in the evening. Your guests will be impressed with the great look of your whole reception.
Bottom line, you NEED lighting!

Trend Alert

These FUN bags give a new meaning to BYOB. Super cute colors, 2 sizes, sold in 3 packs. They would make a perfect “gift bag” for bridesmaid gifts, welcome bags, or for out of town guests.

Pastels are a thing of the past—BRIGHT, BOLD and LUMINOUS are the pops of color for 2009. Magnificent turquoise, yellow and purples (as shown in the above bouquet) are an indication that HOT hues have arrived!
BLAZING reds, LUMINOUS pinks, and VIBRANT oranges depict the Jewel tones of the new 2009/2010 season!
