Trends of 2009 – Ethnic Hors D’oeuvres & Appetizers

Food,Wedding Trends 2009 — Edyta @ 6:23 AM

I don’t know if this post’s inspiration came from the delicious veggie burrito I had last night or what?! Yummy!  But the trend reports conquer!  2009 is all about the tangy, spicy, savory, exotic tastiness of your wedding cocktail hors d’oeuvres.  So watch out crab cakes and mini burgers – bold sippy soups, chilled tofu, and asian-infused wraps are fighting for the platters carried by the server’s hands!

Yup, I did make a little valentine for YOU this morning!  Happy Friday the 13th, ha!  Remember when you would spend hours making a valentine’s box to bring to school…ah, those were the simple days.  Not a huge fan in the over done holiday, but I’m a sucker for simple romance and a belly of butterflies. Don’t forget to show some lovin to the ones you adore – friends, family and lovas.  Ladies – that means you too! Enjoy your weekend!

With the growing trend of small bridal parties, cocktail bridesmaid dresses and budget crunching, hitting up the sale racks is the way to go!  After doing a little shopping myself this past weekend, I realized how much you can save and still have your bridal party looking amazing for your big day!  And in most cases, looking completely unique.  All the dresses I am featuring today are currently on sale between $40 to $100!

Wink wink :)  Welcome to Monday!  Ahhh, do you smell roses and sweet candies in the air?  Probably not.  Valentine’s Day isn’t until Saturday!  I’m not a huge vday celebrater, handmade gifts and warm gestures please me just fine but that didn’t keep me from hunting for some sentimental goodies!  Love anything and everything from oh.hello friend’s etsy shop (her blog here), and I’m a sucker for collages in old frames!  So hopefully these spark your vday week up!
