Super Sunday without the Super Stress

February 04, 2016. Category: catering, cooking, details, diy, event, how to, uncategorized

With a die-hard Denver Broncos fan on our team in Cindy, we couldn’t let the Super Bowl Sunday go by without a blog post. We have pulled together a few of our favorite Super Bowl entertaining tips and put together a cute downloadable version of Cindy’s favorite Super Bowl predictions game for you to print out and play with your friends. So get cooking, drink up and Go Broncos!

These adorable and easy to make cutlery cans (see instructions here) are the perfect way to add a little football flare to your Super Spread.

Aimee’s go to Super Bowl snack is the Barefoot Contessa’s caramelized onion dip (here). And who could forget the drinks! Consider calling in tired on Monday morning and making a crowd favorite Beer-Rita (here).

Don’t forget to have activities for those that may not be the biggest football fans. Fun activities like our downloadable predictions game (click here to download printable version) are the perfect way to engage those there for the pigs in a blanket and not the pigskins.

Hats Off to Groundhog Day!

February 02, 2016. Category: catering, ceremony, traditions, trends

Sometimes it feels like planning your wedding is a bit like Groundhog Day, you see the same traditional elements over and over again.  You don’t want to give up on tradition but also want to put your spin they day. So in honor of Punxsutawney Phil we want to pass along a few of our favorite twists on some wedding traditions. Here’s to not seeing your shadow and starting something new!

Embrace the Darkness

We love a good daytime ceremonies but there is a certain romance and elegance about getting married at night. Use candles and a good lighting team to direct the guests attrition to exactly what is important…the two you starting your life together.

Get Up and Move

Release your guests from their tables and let them mix and mingle! A dinner of food stations and passed small plates and mixing up the seating with cocktail tables and lounge furniture is the perfect way to get your guests to interact throughout the evening. Worried your guests are too shy? One the specialty cocktails start flowing so will the conversations (and dance moves)!

Brides-man…Best Woman

Your posse may not necessarily fit perfectly into gender groups. Skip tradition and ask those that truly mean the most to you to stand next to you as you say “I Do”. Your brother is your BFF, make him a brides-man. Your childhood friend is a girl, best woman material right there.

Hashtag Wedding, Hashtag couple

January 29, 2016. Category: event, how to, printed materials

We love a wedding hashtag to track your friend’s photos of your wedding in real time (or look at on your honeymoon with a Mai Tai in your hand). But what should your hashtag be?

Here are a few tips:

  1. Keep it simple. A hashtag that is too long will lead to inaccurate posts.
  2. Consider your location.  Incorporating the city or state where are you getting hitched is a great idea.
  3. Be fun!  Your hashtag sets the tone for your party, so don’t be afraid to be silly or make fun of yourself a bit
  4. Check to see if it has been used. You may not be the first to think of your hashtag, so be sure there are no inappropriate grammars using your potential tag.  After all, you mom is on Instagram by now and will be looking!
  5. If you are really stumped, try out a hashtag generator. Wedding Hashtag Wall is a good way to start.
  6. Finally, don’t forget to tell your guests about your hashtag, we love the hashtag on signs and cocktail napkins.
