This time of year, it's alway great to have some extra hors d'oeuvres available, should a visitor drop by for a mug of hot cider while chestnuts are roasting by the fire. This week's Bridal Booty Giveaway is perfect for those throwing a post-holiday soiree. We have Crab & Spinach Dip, Spinach Artichoke Dip, and Caramel Apple Dip Mix, courtesy of Vermont's Halladay's Harvest Barn, as well as "Lite Your Fire" Spice Mix, to give to our one lucky winner.


Apparel and accessories embodying a fun yet relaxed attitude are given to us in the shape of ties, bow ties, and belts among many other fantastic items of Vineyard Vines.

This apple orchard-inspired shoot by Brea McDonald Photography was simply to die for. It really makes us nostalgic for the crisp days of fall now that we are in the midst of a long, cold winter. From the crocheting to the caramel-dipped apple goodies, to the creative stationery, there are just so many fun thing involved in this shoot - it's fantastic inspiration for Autumn-inclined brides-to-be still deciding on a venue. Apple orchards are a great way to utilize nature's natural beauty to create a truly memorable celebration.

Make a cute and easy display for your pinwheel escort cards. For this project, we used a pretty floral origami paper. Origami works great because there is a different pattern on the front than there is on the back.
