Obsessed with Sardinia!

Day of the Dead Theme Wedding

Day of the Dead is a traditional Mexican holiday,  that celebrates the lives of those who have died, honoring them with sugar skulls, marigolds and favorite beverages and food of the deceased.  November 1 is when this celebration takes place in Mexico and around the world.  While I did a little digging around to create this post, what captured my attention most are the beautiful colors and Mexico flavor used in this celebration.  Here are a few images that could be used in a Day of the Dead, or any Mexican Fiesta-type themed wedding.  Enjoy!

School’s Back in Session!

I was reminded of the first day of school today when I heard a big orange school bus growl its way up my hill.  Aha!  A blog post on paper!  There are so many ways to incorporate paper into your wedding day details.  Here’s a look at some creative ideas:

Beautiful Favors to give your Guests

Of course you want to let your guests know just how appreciative you are to have them present on your special day, but what are some cost-effective ways to do this?  Here are some options:

Having a wedding during berry season?  How about going berry picking before hand (or better yet, spend a day with your bridesmaids doing this before your wedding).  Many hands make light work.



Having a vintage-style wedding?  Pass along advice with these hand stamped spreaders.  (Well maybe this isn’t the cheapest option, but still adorable!)



Love to bake?  Try cupcakes in a jar.  Get bulk jars at: http://www.specialtybottle.com/ecomasonjarsmi.aspx



Have a green thumb?  Start by planting herb seeds early in the season so plants are well established by your wedding day.  To add a special touch, select herbs with a symbolic meaning and include a tag to explain.



Have some other ideas?  We’d love to hear from you!
