"The Only Thing that Separates Us from the Animals Is Our Ability to Accessorize"

The title of this post is also one of my favorite lines from the movie, Steel Magnolias. And yes, accessorizing is extremely important to completing any look. So, for brides, it can't just be all about the dress. Very carefully, appropriate accessories should be selected to compliment her gown as well as her hair. Even accessories that may be barely seen (such as shoes, garters and undergarments) are eminently significant. And don't forget those little frills and yummies we all love just for being commemorative of the short-lived time in which one is allowed to use the title of "bride."

Take a look at two accessory works in progress, courtesy of me and my love affair with Polyvore:

Bridal Gown: Simone Carvalli
Diamond Engagement Ring: Tiffany New York
Christian Louboutin Paillette Platforms:

"Farm Sweet Farm" 1st Birthday Party

My husband and I celebrated our baby twins, Jonah & Gia's, 1st birthday with a "Farm Sweet Farm" party last weekend.  The party was held at our home (aka The Anderson Farm) and our closest family and friends excitedly attended.  Honestly it's still difficult for us to believe a full year has gone by since they entered our lives, but one thing was clear from the beginning --- we had a lot to celebrate and we intended to do just that!

Everyone had loads of fun; they would've partied until the cows came home if we let them.  And since the guests of honor LOVE animals, the theme proved to be absolutely perfect for them and their guests.  To most, I'm known for planning amazing weddings and bridal celebrations by means of THE BRIDAL PARTY, so it was really a lot of fun to step outside of my comfort zone and show off my versatility and range.  I can't deny, this was FUN!  I'm still quite "giddy" about it all.
