    What do you think of this color scheme/decor for my wedding reception?

    Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

    Hi!

    We have been lucky enough that my future FIL is letting us use this great old pavilion he restored. It has wood beams, is huge and is all french doors that can all open so rain or shine we have an event space! The pavilion is next to a natural pond and gardens.

    Our colors are baby pink, cranberry red and tones of pink that fall between.

    We want a formal wedding reception here that also helps bring out the natural beauty of the place. So far we are going to have long tables (about 20ft long) in rows. My future MIL already has white table skirts for these but we were thinking Mauve table cloth to have custom made.
    This is the fabric: http://www.customlinen.com/Step2_Linens.cfm?cut=Tablecloth&id=1
    And as a ‘table runner’ just doing 8′ wide strips of mirror running the whole length of our tables. On these we will have lots of candles and short flower arrangements.

    We know we want to put a lot of emphasis on candlelight. The pavilion has 6 large chandelierss with adjustable light, but we want most of theambientt light to come from candles. We were thinking LED candles on the wooden rafters, but not sure. Every major post around thepavilion has a wall scone candle holder already and we have numerous candle lanterns to light the path ways.

    How does all this sound?

      What are some outdoor wedding venues in Delaware (or surrounding areas)?

      Sunday, March 27th, 2011

      I’m looking for places in Delaware (or right over the line in MD or PA) to have an outdoor wedding.
      I looked at places like Hagley museum, and Longwood gardens but Longwood doesn’t allow the ceremony, only photography.
      I want my ceremony location to be set up like this:

        Is it a mom thing? To get excited about?

        Saturday, March 19th, 2011

        So back in the day I might get excited about buying new shoes, or an electronic something, a cool accessory. *Sigh* Well I am soooo excited about…my new vacuum. It’s coming Wednesday and I can’t wait to use it.

        My Dyson died, and honestly this is my 2nd one in 4 years, I’m done with that brand. After reading hundreds of reviews and looking at all the allergy and asthma websites, this one looked like the best option with the best reputation.

        http://www.amazon.com/Miele-S4210-Antares-Turbo-Nozzle/dp/B000AAWEK4/ref=pd_bbs_sr_4?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1232379083&sr=8-4

        Is this normal? Is it a mom thing to get excited about appliances? Please say yes 🙂
        Stay@: It does do hardwood and the lin… I can’t wait to use it. I have carpet in the bedrooms and livingroom, hardwood in the kitchen and lino in the bathroom. I may leave work early Wednesday to fully appreciate my purchase… Oh if my high school friends could see me now. lol

          and that’s everything I picked out so far. it will take a while though because everything together is up to like 224 dollars. any more ideas that are cheap that would go with the room ‘theme’ though would be greatly appreciated. and please comment and tell me what you think and everything. btw i’m 14, female. and the theme for the room is obviously colors like black, white, and pink.
          Thanks "oh i’m falling", I really do love your ideas (: and I also realized your from Raleigh, NC, that’s pretty cool considering I’m from York, SC, so you really don’t live that far away from me.

            Cake/Cupcake decorating kit?

            Monday, March 14th, 2011

            I am looking for a birthday gift for my girlfriend. She’ll be turning 22 later this month and she had a little machine that makes mini cupcakes as well as a set of mini cake pans. She likes to decorate them, but she doesn’t think they turn out well using a knife and the decorator it came with (this is the cake one I believe http://www.amazon.com/MINI-TIERED-DECORATING-ACCESSORIES-TOTAL-14PC/dp/B0031QF3WU/ref=sr_1_53?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1299448951&sr=1-53). So I was thinking for her birthday I could get her a turning decorating table and maybe something to decorate the cakes and cupcakes with, but I have no idea what I’m looking at or what to buy. We’re both still in college, so money is a bit tight, so that factors in too.

            A turntable I found is here (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00138Y964/ref=ord_cart_shr?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER) and has some fairly good reviews. I think it would work.

            When looking for decorating supplies, I really got lost. There are so many on amazon. Here are some of the ones I found:

            Ateco set: http://www.amazon.com/Ateco-Piece-Cake-Decorating-Set/dp/B001B2QXJS/ref=sr_1_55?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1299448951&sr=1-55

            Wilton set: http://www.amazon.com/Wilton-Decorating-Basics-Student-Kit/dp/B003LMY6JA/ref=sr_1_32?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1299449179&sr=1-32

            Progressive set: http://www.amazon.com/Progressive-International-Bakers-Decorating-Set/dp/B000S0YNUU/ref=sr_1_47?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1299448567&sr=1-47

            I honestly don’t know much about them or what would be good for her. She just enjoys to decorate them and have fun. I think they are perfect the way they are, because they all taste the same going down, but she wants make them look better. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

              What to wear to the Garden Tea Party?

              Thursday, February 17th, 2011

              On the twenty fifth of July i am going to one of my best friend’s Sixteenth Birthday, and it is to be a tea party at four o’clock pm. I have long wavy (about twelve inches past my shoulders) red brown hair, fare skin, freckles, and green blue eyes, and 5 foot 7 inches. I recently bought this pair of pale pink t-bar flats, and am planning to wear those to the party.
              http://www.polyvore.com/twinkle_toes_strap_flat-mod_retro/thing?id=17687698
              I have a pair of white lace tights, would that work with the party, or would that not look right with the pale pink flats? Do you have any ideas of what i might wear to the tea party? I am thinking of a dress or skirt, any ideas? I am very girly when it comes to the way i dress. I love lace, pearls, pale pinks, tights, etc.
              Also, any ideas of how to wear my hair? I do not own a straightener because i do not like to straighten my hair. Any hair accessories? I own a black cloth flower clip around six inches in diameter (it was free, someone clipped it to this hat that i bought). Just picture this in BLACK:
