All That Glitters

Your engagement ring doesn't have to be the only thing that sparkles.  Brides are wearing fun and festive accessories, adding some pizazz to their special day.  Miu Miu and Jimmy Choo are just a few of the major labels marketing glittery footwear.  Deux Lux, sells both glamorous and animal friendly bags that could be the perfect gift for any member of the bridal party.  Nordstrom carries a variety of shoes and accessories ranging in all price demographics.  Even Crew Cuts has an adorable selection, a dream come true for any flower girl.  These glittery accessories are a beautiful way to complement any gown.

Tea Time

The Baltimore Sun recently printed a lovely little piece on the resurgence of afternoon tea. Whether you prefer English Breakfast, soothing chamomile, or zesty chai, there is nothing more satisfying than a nice cup of tea. A number of local establishments are hosting high tea, providing customers with delectable finger foods and a comfortable place to relax. Cucumber sandwiches, fresh fruit, and a myriad of pastries are served throughout the two hour experience.
Afternoon tea is an adorable idea for a bridal shower. Not only does it provide guests with a fun cuisine but also a timeless ambiance appropriate for all ages. You don't have visit tea rooms to enjoy the high tea experience, hotels such as the Intercontinental Harbor Court and the Renaissance Mayflower in DC host fabulous events of the sort.
Another enchanting location is Peacock Alley Tea, located at the historic Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington D.C.. If you want a truly English experience Tea on the Tiber, a Victorian Tea room located in Ellicott City hosts annual tea parties and caters private events.

Nice Wedding Favor

To begin this month of December, we want to share this cute tree favor idea from the folks at Martha Stewart. It is great for so many reasons: the favor is "green", not expensive, and really something that guests will keep. The fabric covering can be color coordinated to the wedding and the favor table will look wonderful. The template for the tree tags can be found on Martha Stewart Weddings.
