Bunting has been every where for the last year or so. It is so cute, chic, and really really easy. There are several ways to do it. One way is obviously with fabric but if you don’t have access to a sewing machine I would not suggest this option. It can be very time consuming and fabric can be expensive depending on how much bunting you need. I found this great tutorial over on MyWeddingDay and thought I would share it with you! They used scrapbook paper and ribbon both of which are really budget friendly!

If you aren’t up for playing croquet or corn toss at your wedding but still want to provide entertainment for your guests, how about a magician.  It is an ever-growing wedding trend in England and would be a wonderful way to entertain all ages.  If grandma doesn’t want to do the chicken dance, she can watch a card trick.

Have you ever been invited to a wedding and wondered, “What can I get them that is unique, personal, and memorable?” Do you know of a Bride and Groom that would adore a book full of their grandmothers favorite recipes? If so then Forever Memory Books are the perfect gift!

Paula Emmons owns a local business that does just that. She combines favorite recipes, quotes, and photos to make memorable recipe books.

Paula says, “As a graphic designer, I will  help you create a very unique recipe book for the bride and groom. The concept of the book is simple . . . I have created a fun “how to” recipe section called “How to Boil Water Without Burning it!” Added to this section is a small collection of recipes very special to the bride’s and groom’s family. Included on the page are captions describing the recipe or who submitted the recipe. You will want to include whatever it is that makes the recipe special. Add some photos of perhaps the bridal shower, engagement pics or a wedding shot and voila! – a personalized, custom, first recipe book for the new family! Ready to get started? Go to the Silver Edition and let your imagination run!”
