"Green" with Envy

As we prepare for this weekend's Green & Natural wedding, I'm reminded "eco-friendly and exciting" is still what many brides are looking for on their search for "green" favors.  While there's a plethora of options of varying price ranges in the marketplace, I am partial to those WeddingStar has to offer.  These are not only beautiful but exceptionally special.  I'd bet 99.9% of your guests will have not come across any of these take-aways, especially the married couples who gave away champagne glasses with their names and wedding date etched.
 Multiuse Natural Cotton Tote
This simple tote can mean so much! Enjoy presenting your guests with a take-home favor that just makes sense and is a long serving reminder of your happy wedding day.

Miniature Woven Picnic Basket
This mini picnic basket comes with an optional solid lid and adorable double handles. The lid can be simply and decoratively held in place with a pretty wrap of ribbon tied into a bow. If desired, the lid can be eliminated all together. This will accommodate larger fillers such as homemade cookies or similar confections that require just a little more space. Regardless of what you choose to tuck inside, the resulting favor will have distinctive casual charm.

"Hand in Hand" Bamboo Server Set
This "handy" Salad Server Set is a useful culinary gadget that is also environmentally friendly. A great gift for your guests, especially those that love to cook.

Ceramic Love Bird Bottle Stopper
These high quality ceramic stoppers not only look great but are incredibly functional as well. Carefully balanced, they sit perfectly in the wine bottle of your choice. Your guests will enjoy receiving it as much as you will enjoy giving it. Use it as a favor or include it in a gift basket or welcome bags!

Bamboo Ballpoint "Be green, just write" Pen
With a veneer of eco-friendly bamboo, these pens make a perfect favor option for those wishing to promote a Green lifestyle. Guests will appreciate receiving a practical take-home favor that can be "re-used" again and again! Matching Novelty Card available

"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…
