Burlap Silverware Holders

Burlap Silverware Holders

Our close friends and occasional PIP contributors, Vicki and Paige, landed in Waco, Texas for a fun week in search of all things fabulous. It did not take them long to discover a set of wonderful burlap silverware holders. We hate to admit it but this was our first encounter with utensil holders and we are smitten. So of course, we felt compelled to spend a couple of of hours researching burlap utensil pockets and then decided to share a few of our favorites with you. We envision  using cutlery pockets for weddings, bridal & baby showers, and birthday & dinner parties . We also think burlap cutlery holders could really add that sometime elusive but all so important little splash of wow to your Thanksgiving tables! Continue Reading →

The Most Important Wedding Registry Tip (No One Will Ever Tell You)

Hey ladies! Today we have one bit of advice that we are pretty certain no one has ever shared with you before. It runs contrary to popular opinion and may even make the super sweet brides among you balk. Every single bride-to-be we knows falls into this same trap. She never ever registers for enough gifts for the number of guests invited to all of the events hosted in her honor, let alone for enough expensive gifts. Yes, you read that right, you need to register for more luxury goods and big-ticket items.

Your wedding registry is NOT the place to prove to the world you are simple and have little need for worldly goods. If that is truly the case, simply do not register. Filling out your wedding registry is the time to be both practical and aspirational. It is not greedy to like nice things. Clearly your guests have lots of choices and hopefully, will be able to find something lovely to gift in their price range. Continue Reading →

The Quintessential Fall Party Favor >> Maple Syrup in Maple Leaf Bottles!

Maple Syrup Party Favors

Maple Syrup is the Quintessential Fall Party Favor >> Maple Syrup Favors

The Quintessential Fall Party Favor

Annie and Joel's New Hampshire wedding was idyllic. Planned and executed to perfection! They got every detail right. If we had to label it, we would call it KISS perfect. Not only did their guests tap their glasses every half an hour or so begging this inspiring couple to grace us with another kiss, Annie and Joel followed our advice to Keep It Simple.

One of our favorite, albeit completely unnecessary, touches was their gifting of the quintessential fall party favor, maple syrup in maple leaf bottles. Not only are these the perfect party favors for fall New England weddings, we love them for just about any autumn celebration. Think “Falling in Love” bridal showers and “A Sweet Life” birthday brunches. And we think this quintessential fall party favor could easily double as a place card if you personalize the favor tags with your guests' names. If we had not just received this favor at Annie's & Joel's wedding, these maple leaf bottles filled with maple syrup would have definitely adorned our Thanksgiving table this year!
