Do Them A "Favor"

I will always be an advocate for favors that are either "practical" or "edible."  After all, it isn't likely wedding/event guests will have much use for a ceramic trinket with a ribbon displaying the couple's names and wedding date hot-glued on. So during last week's sneak peek into Spring (80 degree sunny weather) here in the NJ/NY area, my husband and I decided to stop into Cold Stone Creamery and I was reminded of their novelty cupcakes! These ice-cream cupcakes debuted last year and were supposed to be offered for a limited time only, but it seems they're here for a while longer. They come in packs of six and include a layer of cake, fudge and super premium ice-cream, all inside a rich chocolate shell.

Cold Stone Creamery offers the following flavors:
  1. Cake Batter Delux: red velvet cake with fudge and cake batter ice cream in a rich Belgian chocolate shell, topped with pink frosting and sprinkles
  2. Sweet Cream: yellow cake with fudge and sweet cream ice cream in a rich Belgian chocolate shell, topped with Butter-creme frosting and Duo Mistrals topping
  3. Double Chocolate Devotion: devil's food cake with fudge and chocolate ice cream in a rich Belgian chocolate shell, topped with Butter-creme frosting and Oreo cookie
Now this is a favor your guests would absolutely love! Perfect for showers and birthdays too.

"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.

scam (skām): A fraudulent business scheme

Yesterday, I received my first wedding scam attempt (guess my latest marketing and advertising efforts are starting to work). I received an email from an "Irish" bride-to-be whose fiance was offered a job in the U.S. and needed help planning a small wedding in New Jersey. I vaguely remembered hearing of certain swindle attempts on wedding vendors (especially photographers and videographers), so my radar peaked immediately, however, I didn't jump to any conclusions right away. I responded to the email, drew up a preliminary proposal, quoted cost of service and submitted an invoice for payment. Nonetheless, when it became apparent that the bride-to-be and her French fiance only intended on mailing a cashier's check, I knew right away what I was dealing with ... a scam! I happen to know that international cashier's checks are not fully validated for 90 days. So even though the check may clear at first, if found to be phony, the money is later deducted.

I must say, it…
