Wedding Welcome Bags

Let me preface this post with a disclaimer of sorts: every Bride has one or two things she is allowed to obsess over, and Welcome Bags were mine. Actually, I think this was the only thing I obsessed over as I wasn’t super interested in the other details (I sort knew what I wanted, but didn’t need to micro-manage to make sure everything was...

Dried Lavender Place Cards

At some point while I was in the throws of all things wedding, I became mildly obsessed with the idea of using dried lavender for my table assignments. I quickly ruled out buying lavender because it rivals the price of gold. Seriously, everything I found was around $16 a “bunch”. I use the word “bunch” loosely though, as it would have made...

Hangover Kit Party Favor

I recently hosted a Bachelorette Slumber Party and thought some preventive measures for the morning after would make for a good party favor – and I was right!  These were a big hit.  We also decided that these could also be referred to as a “Jet Lag Kit” if you wanted to use them as a Destination Wedding Favor and wanted a more PC name. Either...
