Be the Hostess w/ the Mostess at Super Bowl 46

Next Sunday, February 5th, is the Super Bowl!  This is always such a fun time to get together with friends and family.  Check out our Super Bowl party tips for food and decorations!

1.  Go for theme decorating:  The Super Bowl is a chance to go all out with festive decorations. Consider a "playing field" table top like the ones below.  You can place dishes with finger foods all around, or have a potluck, and let your guests place their dishes where they choose.

2.  Making a football themed pizza is the perfect way to customize your game day food.  Toppings can be used to decorate in so many ways!  Another idea is to make individual-sized pizzas for your guests and have a topping station so that they can put their own spin on Super Bowl decorating!

3.  Provide your guests with theme-labelled cups.  Not only will it add a festive look, but it will ensure that you don't end up with tons of lost cups!

4.  Fun desserts are always a safe bet!  "Football dipped" strawberries or cute cake pops are sure to be a hit!

Whether the Giants or Patriots win, you'll come out ahead with your fun and festive Super Bowl party!

Bridesmaid Dress Trends for 2012!!

Over the years, bridesmaid dresses have gained a reputation for being less than attractive, but these days, there are so many pretty options that can actually be worn again, instead of ending up in a thrift store!
We have noticed three main trends for dresses that can make the bridesmaids stand out without the risk of upstaging the bride.


1.  Find your own!
Many brides are picking a color scheme or general length but allowing bridesmaids to pick dresses that suit their individual styles.  This is a guarantee that your bridesmaids will feel comfortable, and you can still maintain the color for your theme.

2.  The convertible dress!
In recent years, convertible or "twist" dresses have become very popular for bridesmaids.  The bride chooses the length, color, and fabric but allows the bridesmaids to adjust straps for distinguishing styles.


3.  Unique details!
Weddings have become much more unique and personalized and so have bridesmaid dresses!  Cute colors, patterns, and detailed accessories can add elements that make your day even more special!


What are your favorite bridesmaid dress trends?  Let us know!
