Extraordinary Ideas?

Okay, so all my ideas may not be extraordinary, but most of them at least fall into the idea category. I have also included my thoughts and comments about all things related to weddings and events. I'll even throw in a few things not at all related, just because I wanted to talk (or vent) about them. Have fun!

    Hurray for Marshmallows!

    I came across this fun shortcut for icing cupcakes in the September issue of Real Simple magazine. This is a great no-icing needed method. When there is about three minutes left for your cupcakes to bake, pull them out of the oven and put one marshmallow on the top of each one. Return them to the oven for the remaining time or until the marshmallow is slightly melted but still fluffy.
    I love this quick fix when you don't have time to make your own frosting!
    Have fun!

    An Unexpected Gift

    Since fall is here and thoughts of Thanksgiving are beginning to dance in my head - I've been thinking about the blessings in my life. I knew that designing weddings and events would be lots of fun, but I didn't see the unexpected up-side to this career. As the number of brides I have had the good fortune to work with increases, so does the number of friends in my life. I have been lucky to have worked with some amazing people and am continually amazed at the clients who are put in my life. Their hasn't been a "bridezilla" in the bunch and all have been lovely to work with, but some of them become lifetime friends. I know there will always be a close bond with them and I am sad when the wedding is over and I no longer speak with them as frequently. These special brides (and their families) will always have a special place in my heart. For this I am thankful!
    Here are a couple of photos from one such recent wedding. I will share more photos from this wedding in a later blog.
    Have fun!
