Discover Your Wedding Style >> Take the Quiz

Discover Your Bridal Style Quiz, Discover Your Wedding Style

Discover Your Wedding Style >> Take the Quiz

One of the most difficult parts of planning a wedding is figuring out the bride's style. We often recommend to our brides that one of the best ways to discover your wedding style is to join pinterest, set-up a pinterest wedding board, and just start pinning looks you like.  Sometimes, the your style is clear almost immediately but more often today's modern bride has a very eclectic style and prefers to incorporate lots of different aspects of her personality, the groom's personality, and family traditions and preferences. If  you, or a bride you know, are still in the self-discovery stage of wedding planning, we highly recommend taking these discover your wedding style quizzes.  Again, we are offering 2 different style quizzes – the first, the Knot's classic written What's Your Wedding Style: 10 Questions To Ask Quiz and the second Beau-coup's more visual discover your bridal style quiz.  Everyone in our office took both quizzes and universally found the Beau-coup discover your wedding style quiz more informative.  What do you think?  

Tell us about your bridal style.  Are you a bohemian rustic bride or is your style more like that of a classic modern bride? Are you planning to incorporate lots of different styles and looks into your wedding or do you prefer a more uniform visual? Do quirky touches add to a wedding or do you find them annoying, silly, or distracting?  Leave us a comment.

Peace and Love Party Theme, Ideas & Supplies

One of our favorite parties of all times was Portia's Peace and Love theme Bat Mitzvah party. It was not only colorful and festive, the theme was thoughtful and perfectly appropriate for the occasion. Ever since, this theme has sat patiently waiting on our “to do” list. Recently we received an email from Shauna planning her daughter's 8 year old birthday party and looking for “peace and love” theme ideas. So finally we have an excuse to move it right up to the top of our list. As we began gathering the best of the best “Peace and Love” party supplies, we quickly realized its versatility since it can be dressed up and down, made elegant or cute. You can decorate this party in bright neons or in Thanksgiving and holiday colors. Not only is a Peace and Love theme perfect for adult and children birthday parties, sweet sixteen, quinceanera, and Bat Mitzvah celebrations, it is also a meaningful fund raising theme, festive holiday party theme, and great for a kick-back, college party or school dance.

Cheap Chic Holiday Gifts >> Cupcakes in a Glass Bell Jar

Cheap Chic Holiday Gifts - Cupcakes in a Glass Bell Jar

Cheap Chic Holiday Gifts >> Cupcakes in a Glass Bell Jar

We recently stumbled upon a DIY gift idea involving baking mini banana breads in  ball mason jars (lightly oil the jars and only fill batter about half way up).  We liked almost everything about the project except the bedraggled cloth tied to the lids – it cheapened the entire look and not surprisingly, we believed we could find a way to make a good idea even better >> hence, Cheap Chic Holiday Gifts – Cupcakes in a Glass Bell Jar !

As usual, however, when we begin obsessing about a project, we never quite know the direction our research will take us.  This time we got sidetracked and quickly became enamored with these featured wonderful Miniature Glass Bell Jars with White Fluted BaseHoliday Cupcake Wrappers, Cheap Chic Holiday Gifts - Cupcakes in a Glass Bell JarHow great would it be to add an adorable holiday cupcake wrapper to create a festive, chic and expensive looking little gift of thanks.  It would be especially cute if you used the Merry & Bright Cupcake KitThe Nutcracker Cupcake Kit, The Twelve Days of Christmas Cupcake Kit, or create more of a non-denominational winter wonderland look using the damask light blue patterned cupcake wrappers (perfect for teacher gifts!)

OMG – now that we are thinking of it these would make fabulous party favors for just about any celebration.  For Thanksgiving make pumpkin cupcakes and decorate them with the Turkey with Hats Cupcake Kit. For baby showers think Peter Rabbit, Animal Parade, and vintage baby cupcake wrappers.  And how perfect are these glass bell jars for a chic Paris Party!

Buy the glass jars in bulk (they are cheaper that way) and store them away for whenever you need a cheap but chic little gift of thanks.

Party Hearty!
