Apothecary Drink Dispensor



Ahhhh, doesnt this look refreshing! I recieved this exact Apothecary drink dispensor as a gift for Christmas last year. Since then it has been the talk of all of my social gatherings.


I love to use it for pink lemonade and float lemons for a touch of extra flavor. This is a great purchase for any type of shower or event. I love it and knew you all would as well.



Cheers!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

According to some traditions, a young woman seeking a husband should go in search of a four-leaf clover. If she is fortunate enough to find one, she is to eat it. The first unmarried man she encounters after eating the clover will be the one she will wed. Another tradition of gaining a husband or wife is to find a four-leaf clover and place it in one's shoe first thing in the morning. The first unmarried member of the opposite sex encountered that day will be one's future spouse.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Photo Booth Strip Picture Frame



Martha Stewart weddings featured this very creative idea in the Winter 2010 Anniversary Issue. I love the idea! Here is the description from the website below:




Strips of a Lifetime! Having a photo booth for your guests is a fun, interactive alternative to a traditional guest book. To keep that playful and conversation-starting spirit going long after the event, frame the strips and display them on your walls. Most people hide them away between the covers of an album, but why do that when a cinematic collage like this is an instant touchstone -- a reminder of who was there to witness your vows -- not to mention a visual wow. What you'll need for the project: card stock that fits your frame, along with 20 to 30 photo strips per collage. Be sure to take your time deciding what order they should go in; you could place them randomly or divide them into friends and relatives, for example. Once you've got everyone just where you want them, arrange the strips so they overlap slightly, and mount using archival double-stick tape, securing one strip at a time, starting from the left side. 11 3/4-by-34 3/4-inch "Ribba" frames, each $20, Ikea. "Sussex" sideboard, $3,550, The Conran Shop.

La Di Real Wedding: Naomi and Andy


This October we were able to work with Naomi and Andy for their beautiful fall wedding. Here is a snapshot of their wedding day at the Oak Brook Bath and Tennis Club. All Photos provided by Heather Parker Photography.
Instead of the traditional escort card carmel apples were adorned with leaves with the name of the guest and table number.





Rolf's created a three tier white butter cream cake. It was decorated with a white fondant bow and Bride and Groom Marzipan Monkeys.



Instead of sitting at a head table Naomi and Andy decided to have a sweetheart table just for two.




The Chair Couture covered each guests chair with a brown cover and champagne sash tied in a side knot.



Due to a rainy afternoon, we were forced to use our plan B and move the ceremony inside. Here you see the chair decorations provided by Naomi.







Kio Kreations provided all of the vibrant fall flowers. Here you see the arrangements that we attached to the indoor archway.


































The ceremony aisle was decorated with fall leaves on either side. Here the adorable flower girls added the final touch of petals for Naomi's entrance.













Naomi was absolutely stunning, her makeup was provided by makeup Artist Cynthia Sally.














Loved the bouquets, the color was breathtaking, all provided by Kio Kreations.














After the ceremony, we were able to take the Bride and Groom outside for photography with Heather Parker.






























It was a great for all of us to work with a couple so in love!









To add a little fun for the guests, Naomi and Andy provided a Photo booth from Gem Productions.
Naomi and Andy Congratulations, we wish you only the best days to come!
