It’s Decorative Gourd Season!

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

A recent McSweeney’s article reminded us to celebrate our favorite time of year. Smooshed between Halloween and Thanksgiving is Decorative Gourd Season.

If you’ve got a front porch, dining room table or are designing an escort card table, you’ll be using tiny gourds, and maybe some leaves and apples too. There is no such thing as too many gourds, so have fun.

For all of you who are lucky enough to be celebrating your wedding during this stunning season- here is some decorative gourd inspiration.

Now go and be gourdeous!

It’s Movember!

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Movember is all about Moustaches. And it’s not just for fun (although it certainly is entertaining!)

Moustaches in Movember are a reason to start talking about men’s health concerns. Issues like prostate cancer and testicular cancer, often go unmentioned, but organizations and individuals are coming together to support causes and raise money for awareness and research.

In the US, one in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime making it the most frequently diagnosed cancer in men after skin cancer. In 2013, over 238,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed and almost 30,000 men will die of prostate cancer in the US alone.

We support these causes and the men who are moustached for the month to help raise awareness. For all couples getting married in November, there are certainly ways to incorporate the popular moustache into your wedding decor.

Here are some of our suggestions:

The Mystique and Romance of All Hallows Eve

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Before candy and cheap costumes became the symbol of halloween; the superstitious Celtic people began the tradition of All Hallows Eve. The holiday was celebrated as the end of their calendar year and marked the beginning of winter. It was a time when herds of sheep were brought closer to home and everyone cozied in for a long cold winter.

This was the time of year when the ghosts of the living traveled to the underworld and spirits came out to play. The foggy cold weather must have created an eerie and lovely setting. On All Hallows Eve the pagan Celts celebrated by lighting bonfires to symbolize the plight of souls lost in purgatory going door-to-door offering prayers for the safe passage of the dead in exchange for cakes and other treats.

The supernatural holiday always feels mysterious and a little romantic as we cozy in with our loved ones for the winter and celebrate in our own way. I’m throwing an All Hallows Eve Wine Party inspired by the images below.
