I got this idea from my most recent bride, Jill. They are small pictures that are made into confetti that you can spread around the reception. It is a great conversational piece for families who are trying to get to know each other but don't have much to talk about!
You can have several pictures of you and your groom, or pictures of friends, family or pets! What a surprise for one of your guest to look down and see their picture as confetti! Photofetti is so versitle. It can be used for weddings, birthday parties, or any other special gatherings.
Okay, here is the website...I am starting to sound like a representative for Photofetti....haha!

Wedding Song

Jesu - Joy of Man's Desiring

I love this is so beautiful, especially with these ladies doing the vocals. It is times like these that I wish I could sing! This song is played at a lot of weddings, because it is so beautiful and joyous.

Winter Centerpiece

A very cute, inexpensive centerpiece that is perfect for winter parties! I (once again) got this cute picture idea from Better Homes and Gardens…can you tell that I love that magazine!? The idea for this centerpiece is simple, but so adorable..and not too overused. Pinecones are something that everyone enjoys, mix those with small ornaments, tie a ribbon around the jar and write a little note for your guests! Pretty simple…
I don’t know if I will get a chance to blog until after Christmas. Things are going well..but as usual at Christmas time, crazy too. If I do not get another chance, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and hope that you are filled with joy and love this holiday.

Love this dress!

I absolutly LOVE this dress! It came from . I was just searching the internet and came across this and just had to post it. It is times like these I wish I were going to a high school dance again. Picking out prom dresses is so fun..especially when you can find a GREAT dress like this for such a steal. When I was in school, I feel that they did not have as good of selections as they do now. Maybe I can talk my husband into taking me somewhere that would require a dress like this...

Candy Box Caramels

I found these delicious caramels on Better Homes and Garden's website. Here is the recipe:

12 ounces chocolate- and/or vanilla-flavor
candy coating*, coarsely chopped
1 cup
toffee pieces, crushed; finely chopped pistachios; and/or nonpareils
48 short plastic or wooden
skewers (optional)
1 14-ounce package
vanilla caramels (about 48), unwrapped
2 ounces chocolate- and/or vanilla-flavor candy coating*, coarsely chopped (optional)
1. In a microwave-safe 4-cup measure, place the 12 ounces candy coating.
Microwave on 100% power (high) for 3 minutes or just until melted, stirring every 30 seconds.

2. Place toffee pieces, nuts, or nonpareils in a shallow dish. If desired, insert a skewer into each caramel. Dip one caramel into melted candy coating; turn to coat as much of the caramel as desired, allowing excess coating to drip off caramel. (If not using skewers, use a fork to lift caramel out of candy coating, drawing the fork across the rim of the glass measure to remove excess coating from caramel.) Place dipped caramel in toffee pieces, nuts, and/or nonpareils, turning to coat. Place coated caramel on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Repeat with remaining caramels. Let caramels stand about 1 hour or until coating dries.

3. If desired, microwave 2 ounces of a contrasting color of candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl on 100% power (high) for 2 minutes or just until melted, stirring every 30 seconds. Cool slightly. Transfer coating to a small, heavy plastic bag; cut a small hole in one corner of bag and drizzle additional coating over coated caramels. Let caramels stand until set. Makes 48 pieces.

4. To Store: Layer caramels between waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.

5. *If desired, substitute milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and/or white chocolate baking squares with cocoa butter for candy coating.

Christmas Table Decor

I just love this decoration idea from Better Homes and Garden. Red is one of my favorite colors so this picture caught my eye pretty quickly. Just take red roses (or white), put them into a washed out can and glue the candy canes to the can. To secure the canes, tie a cute red, white or stripped ribbon around the can. Easy as that!
