Fresh new ideas!

Hope everyone had a great holiday!

For that bride/party planner that has to have the newest and most unique ideas! Preston Bailey (Everyone should follow him on Facebook or Twitter!) posted a cool idea for wedding cakes.
Wedding Cake Push Pops!!! We all remember the Flintstone's Push Pops-this is even better.

This would probably be practical to use for a Summer or Spring wedding/party.

It'll definitely have people talking and make your event memorable!

I am very excited today to congratulate my very good friend and ex-coworker, Amanda Bursic, on her engagement to Chaz Smith! They have been together for about 3 years now and I am so excited to begin her planning with her! They are aiming for a fall wedding-any ideas that are awesome I will surely share.

Again congratulations Amanda!!

Weddings

Paulette and I did a wedding back in September and I finally got the pictures up for everyone to see! Everything turned out great and the bride was thrilled! The reception was at the Phipps Garden Center-so gorgeous. A wonderful place to have a reception.


Season Wedding Ideas!

Season wedding ideas!

Bring out the essence of the season with:

Spring

Serving ham or lamb; in season dishes

Fresh fruits and veggies

Elegant side dishes, maybe with garnish for different textures and a spring feel

Festive champagne and punch cocktails

Summer

Season fruits, think fresh and light just like the summer time. Watermelons, berries, pineapples etc.

Do some grilling

Tropical cocktails of course are a must

Fall

Keep it traditional-thanksgiving style feasting with all the trimmings

Keeping it simple and close to home by incorporating family recipes and other dishes of the sort

Elegant for fall! Do some fall like d├ęcor with leaves, cinnamon sticks, soup etc.

Winter

Hearty meals to comfort for the cold weather

Wintery beverages, instead of cocktails try spiked eggnog, cider, or mixed coffee/hot chocolaty drinks



Found these on the web-thought I would share!

Important questions for your caterer

We all know the food is always a very important part to planning an event! The key is to choose the right one! Here are some important questions to ask, aside from can I have seconds, when choosing your caterer.

  • Can your staff comfortably accommodate our event?
  • What does the menu consist of exactly?
  • What deposits are required?
  • Are there specific hours you are available?
  • Do you have other events the same day as mine?
  • Are there a minimum of guests required?
  • Where is the food prepared?
  • When must the menu be finalized
  • How is your staff dressed (wedding or corporate event
For more great tips check back!

Winter Wedding Trends for 2011-2012

We all known Winter weddings can be slightly hectic and difficult because we run out of colors and themes, but here is what the hot new look could be for your magical Winter Wonderland wedding!

White Vintage cake or Victorian style-perfect to set that winter mood but keep it classic and stylish.

Tall white, silver, or crystal bark/branches for centerpieces (ask your florist about general ideas). This adds beautiful decor for half the price and gets rid of the traditional candle look.

Chocolate covered cranberries or roasted chestnuts for favors (any nut will do). Warm goodies do the trick for a winter wedding! (several options)

Ice Sculptures to add the cold winter setting

Hot chocolate station-put more emphasis on it, use it as a decor more than a beverage with your cake and cookies!

Themed weddings are very popular, as well. It helps to stay away from the original green and red color scheme around the holidays.
