Candy bars have been the wedding reception craze for a while now.  I definitely don’t see it stopping, but I do see hope for us savory-loving people!  The concept remains the same – setting up a favor table with various spices for your guests to scoop into bags or mini jars.  Or you can pre-assemble the spice favors yourself and place at your guests dinner setting.  Why not attach a little recipe to the container using the spices provided?!  Some even suggest providing spices that compliment your hors d’oeuvres or specialty cocktails. The ideas are endless!  The colors and smells will lure them in and you can even come up with your own spice or rub mixture, check out this diy project!  Season with love!

So you know I’ve recently moved, and I’m on the hunt for window curtains!  During my quest, I’ve stumbled upon some super fabric graphics and patterns *drool*. Then I realized my favorite real weddings that hit the blogosphere had wonderful graphic table settings and well…the search continued!  We’ve seen some gorgeous weddings in 2009 with patterned table linens, but I think 2010 will magnify the trend!  Yay!  It’s the perfect way to add that extra something without overspending on centerpieces.  AND the best part? You can totally diy your way through it…. (more…)
