What's your wedding style?

Martha Stewart has a quiz to determine which kind of bride you are. Will your wedding be dressed up or will it be dressed down?

POM Contest!

Who doesn't love anything that is made with pomegranates? There are so many different ways to use drinks (like a pomegranate martini..YUM), in pies, as glazes...the list can go on and on. POM Juice realizes the endless possibilities of this wonderful fruit and is having a contest on who can come up with the best original recipe using pomegranates. You have to submit a picture of your creation and remember....IT MUST BE YOUR RECIPE ONLY! Go to POM's website to enter. The contest ends on November 30, 2008 so make sure that you start working up something wonderful.

I am not normally a frozen margarita drinker but these pomegranate margaritas sure do look divine!

Cute Idea!

Okay, ladies. This item is a MUST HAVE! Have you ever been upset at Groom/Husband/Boyfriend/Any other man in your life because he has either forgotten your Birthday/Anniversary/etc. or bought just a horrible gift? We have all done it, just admit it. Even though we have been so angry at the man who did this, it is partly our fault. We did not equip him with the proper tools that he needed to remember our special occasions and what we really like as gifts (not the blender that he bought us so that we could make smoothies. We get the hint...we will lay off the choco chip cookies!)

Well now we can get our man something that will make both his life and ours a little bit easier. It is the Pink Card! This little card can be personalized to your needs and given to your man so that he never forgets about you again. It can have all your important dates on it plus your sizes or favorite things that you like to receive.

In the end, the man that has forgotten about you once before won't do it again. And you will get you want....attention from him and a nice gift for yourself.

Us women can be so hard to please sometimes :)

Black and Yellow Wedding

I know it is Fall right now and this board is more Spring or Summer, but I was inspired yesterday...and that is exactly what this Inspiration Board. I had a lunch meeting outside yesterday and there was a bumble bee that just loved me. It would not leave my side...and even though it was super annoying, I was able to really look at it and appreciate its bold colors. So as you Spring and Summer brides are planning your weddings right now, think about the bees (no, not the birds and the bees...that will come later!) and appreciate their colors and maybe add it to your wedding. They are bright, bold and beautiful!

Thanks to the following for the pictures:,,,,,

Funny Friday

I needed to laugh a little today so I pulled out today's paper to read the PunchLine section. I am so glad that I did because laughed out loud with a few of the jokes. Today the paper decided to put lines that Southerns would never say and then lines that Northerners would never say. Most of you know that I am originally from Ohio and then moved to Tennessee for college and now reside in North Georgia (right across the TN state line). Having lived now both in the North and the South, I can see that there is such truth in every statement that was in the paper. Here is what it said:
Here are some things you'll NEVER hear a true Southerner say:
* I'll take Shakespeare for 1,000, Alex.
* Duct tape won't fix that.
* Lisa Marie was lucky to catch Michael.
* I thought Graceland was tacky.
* Come to think of it, I'll have a Heineken.
* We don't keep firearms in this house.
* You can't feed that to the dog.
* Honey, did you mail that donation to Greenpeace?
* Who's Jeff Gordon?
* Give me the small bag of pork rinds.
* I just couldn't find a thing at Wal-Mart today.
* Trim the fat off that steak.
* Cappuccino tastes better than espresso.
* The tires on that truck are too big.
* Unsweetened tea tastes better.
* I've got two cases of Zima for the Super Bowl.
* Little Debbie snack cakes have too many fat grams.
* Checkmate.
* Hey, here's an episode of "Hee Haw" that we haven't seen!
* I don't have a favorite college team.
* What?! Park in my front yard? How tacky!
* I think okra tastes so much better steamed. Don't you?
* Cracker Barrel again?!
* If I have to watch those race cars go around that track ONE more time...
* Honey, I can't decide what I want to rent tonight - should we get this National Geographic video or My Dinner with Andre?
* OK, OK, the Civil War is OVER and we LOST...let's just get over it!
Okay, now here are some things you'll NEVER hear a true Northerner say:
* "Yes, Ma'am. Thank you very much."
* I haven't been bowling all week!
* I already have too many black turtleneck sweaters and chocolate brown jackets.
* Amen.
* I'm in no hurry. Let me put on some coffee and we'll chat awhile.
* Don't the magnolia trees in my backyard smell wonderful?
* I'm so glad to be back from my visit to the South. People are so much nicer here.
* Y'all look like you might be lost. May I help?
* Oh, Mom! You must be outrageously angry if you used a bad word.
* I see you are only buying three items. Why don't you go in front of me?
* It's no bother. It's just good old Yankee hospitality.
* Oh, I don't want to be pretentious. I'll take whatever you have to offer.
* We would never eat it all ourselves, so we brought you some squash, tomatoes and beans from our garden.
* We were just out for a stroll and saw the lights and decided to stop by and say hello.
* Snow day!
* OK, so maybe we have accents, too.
* Honey, have you seen my white cotton socks? I absolutely refuse to go out in shorts with dark socks on!
* Howdy!
* Pass the butter beans, please.
* May I please have more grits?
* I'm fixin' to go to the store. Do y'all want anything?

Beautiful Fall Decor Ideas

I saw these beautiful ideas in Better Homes and Gardens and thought I would share them with you since Fall is in the air and Halloween is right around the corner! Fall is my favorite time of the year. I just love it! The thought of Friday night football games, cider and hot chocolate, pumpkin pie, and big cozy sweaters just makes me smile! Plus all the beautiful colors that we will be seeing in the next few weeks is just remarkable. Now, if only we didn't have the 87 degree weather today....

I'm not a huge fan of candy corn, but how could I not like it if it is displayed so cute like this!?

Cute, cute cute! I will definitely be doing this for my house!

Ways to be nice

Okay, I know this post has nothing to do with weddings or events, but I found this article on Real Simple and thought that we all need to read things like this every once in awhile. The article is 48 Ways to be Nice and Improve the World Around You. I posted just a few points but you can find the whole article on the Real Simple website. Be nice to someone today!

When someone leaves a pie plate or a casserole dish at your house, return it with something tasty inside.
Make a list of local shops, restaurants, hair salons, and other services for new neighbors.

When a guest brings a bottle of wine to a party you’re throwing, jot her name on the label. Down the road, when you finally pop the cork, dial up your friend to let her know you’re having a drink in her honor.

Overtip your breakfast waiter. He probably put forth just as much effort as someone on the evening shift would, but his take-home pay is probably lower.

Instead of tossing magazines and old books into the recycling bin, drop a stack off at a local women’s shelter or your gym.

When someone is moving to a new city, supply friends and family members with stamped, preaddressed postcards. (Hand them out at the going-away party.) By the time the family pulls into the new driveway, there will be warm wishes awaiting them.

If you know someone is going out to dinner to celebrate a special occasion, call the restaurant in advance and say you’ll pick up the cost of her wine or dessert.

Every day for a year, jot down one thing you love about your child/husband/friend (he has a crooked smile; she snorts when she laughs). At the end of the year, give the person your one-of-a-kind, 365-item list.

When stocking up on school supplies, pick up a few extras and give them to your child’s teacher to pass on to students whose families might not be able to afford them.

I found these beautiful tents when I was searching the web the other day. I love tents, especially when it is involving a wedding or an event. The white tents are okay but if you had an opportunity to have a custom made tent available for you, wouldn't you go with that? At Raj Tents they can do just that. They can match the color or theme of your party and do it so beautifully! They have all kinds of tents, lighting, and other items (such as furniture) that you can rent from them. Check them out!

Under Construction

We are undergoing some changes to our blog and website to make it better for our readers. We love that we have a following and we thank each one of you for coming back. We do our best to give you the most up-to-date, creative and unique ideas so that your wedding or event can be the best that it can be.

We have just finished our first phase of the site and are now working on the second. Hopefully we will be completely finished in two weeks. That is the goal! We will continue blogging on a regular basis, it may just look a little messy until we are completely done with all of the changes. Thanks for understanding!
