Delightful Packages

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

This little favor box has been sitting on my desk for a week.  It has been my inspiration for summer-y ideas.  And I know it sounds silly, but the bright green box with the heathered blue ribbon just make me happy!    I'll admit it, I am a total sucker for packaging.  I make many of my ...

Wish Jars – An Alternative to the Guest Book

Monday, June 2nd, 2008

For a friend's wedding back in 2006, I created a 'wish tree'.  I bought curly willow branches and stems of hypericum berries for the actual "tree".  I also cut and mounted handmade paper onto red card stock and embossed each card with the couple's monogram.  Then I manually hole-punched each card and ...

The perfect wedding gift and other ideas

Sunday, March 30th, 2008

My closest friend and roommate of 5 years is getting married next month. Naturally there has been a flurry of activity around this upcoming event. I never got around to posting about some of the goings on…so here’s a sum up of the bachelorette party and the bridal shower: The bachelorette ...

A Hospitable Bride

Spring is here!  Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping and insects are biting?!  Spring weddings are upon us again and while outdoor weddings are still a must for this beautiful season of beginnings, we should always take the comfort of our guests into consideration when planning an outdoor event.  When it's ...

Bridesmaid Dos and Don’ts

Friday, March 14th, 2008

In the next 2 months I will be a bridesmaid 3 times in 3 cities on two coasts and in 2 countries.  It must be Katherine Heigl exacting revenge because I gave her movie, 27 Dresses a bad review.  I called the plot contrived and now I am forced to live out ...

Beau-coup does a bridal show

Friday, March 7th, 2008

Armed with hundreds of samples, Gina and I made our bridal show debut on Wednesday night.  The event was called Promises and Pearls and it was held at the San Francisco Design Center.   Beau-coup has sponsored many shows in the past but we had never exhibited.  As newbies, we didn't know ...

Taking a real stand

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

Talk about true dedication to the environmental causes! For most of us, including me, being socially conscious and environmentally friendly is usually something we do in our spare time and only when convenient. We would hardly compromise something as precious as our wedding rings. But for couples who are serious ...

Try it Self-Served

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

I’ve been to a few weddings with decent food…I have. The filet at the Ritz, San Francisco was done perfectly for example. But unfortunately, most of the wedding food I’ve had has been underwhelming. Usually the beef is overcooked, the vegetables soggy and everything is drowning in sauce. It’s gotta ...

My best friend Lindsay got married this weekend and while the entire day including ceremony and reception from start to finish was filled with unique and beautiful details such as the way they used colorful fall leaves in the place of rose petals to dust the isle, the one detail ...
