Who doesn't love anything that is made with pomegranates? There are so many different ways to use them..in 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.

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 :)

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 is..an 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!

I saw this on Yahoo and thought it was too good not to share. I feel so bad for this poor bride!

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....

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 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.

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!
