Say Cheese!!

One of the new trends is to have a photo booth at your wedding!
This can be really fun for your guests and it can be a great keepsake for you and your new husband.  

Anyone who gets their picture taken in the booth will get to keep the pictures and then the same pictures get put into a memory book for the bride and groom to keep!  

A lot of people like doing this because they don't get a chance to take pictures of everyone at the wedding.  This way you have something to remember everyone who was there to celebrate your special day with you!  

Have a photo booth at your wedding for a great time and for great memories!!!

Don't forget the out of towners

If you are having a lot of guests from out of town a fun thing to do for them is to have a gift basket waiting for them when they check into their hotel before the wedding.  

It will make them feel welcome and special that you were thinking about them on their journey to travel to be with you on your special day.  

Fun ideas for gift baskets are to do little items related with the city or state they are staying in.  For instance if your wedding is in Wisconsin some good old Wisconsin cheese curds would be a nice touch!

What's on top?

Cake toppers can be as simple or as elegant as you are going for.  This beautiful cake has a monogram cake topper that has glitter on it. 

For a more humourous couple you could choose a cake topper like this.  The groom is trying one last time to get away!

This cake topper has the bride and grooms name written in wire.  It is simple yet sentimental since it is personalized. 

This bride and groom decided on a cake topper that wasn't personalized but it fit in with the autumn theme. 

When picking a cake topper you can match it with your theme, be humorous or go with the traditional monogram.  Most of all you just want your cake to look beautiful! 

Cost saving tip:  Don't use a cake topper.  Not having a cake topper can actually draw more attention to your cake rather than to the cake topper and look just as elegant!

Creative Kid's Easter Crafts

Easter is a special time of year when the flowers start to bloom and the weather outside starts getting warm.  It comes just in time for everyone to get spring fever!  A fun thing to do around this time is make crafts with your kids to decorate for this holiday.  Traditionally this is a very colorful holiday which makes it fun to decorate!  

One easy craft you can do is use colored tissue paper and crumple it up and tie a green pipe cleaner around the bottom to make a pretty bouquet of flowers. 

Here a bunny is made out of paper and used as a little Easter basket.  Candy fits in the top of the bunny!

Here a little chick and bunny are made out of dixie cups.  If you can't find solid colored cups you can always wrap construction paper around the cups.  Feathers, eyes, ribbon and other things can be used as embellishments.  Use your creativity to decorate it as much or as little as your little one would like!

With all the colors at Easter use your imagination to to make things fun and colorful for you and your kids.  And of course enjoy some candy!!

Easter Egg hunts

Easter is right around the corner and all kids love to look for Easter Eggs filled with candy.  

One idea for looking for the Easter Basket filled with all the candy is to tie a string to the basket and then weave it around things in your house.  In and out of rooms and around things.  Then tie the string to the door of the the child's whose basket it is.  

Another idea is to give each child an egg with a clue in it, that will lead them to the next egg, and the next.  Some of the eggs along the way should have candy or small gifts in them and then the final egg would have a clue for a larger gift!  

Write the names of each of your children on an egg and have them search for just those.  It will be fun finding the eggs but only being able to keep some of them.  And the kids could rehide their other siblings eggs to make it harder so that they have to search more.  First one to find all their eggs wins!

 And of course there is the traditional egg hunt.  Where everyone searches for all the eggs until they are gone and then search for their easter basket!  

Searching for eggs is fun for kids, some like twists and some like doing something different so you can try some of these ideas to spice things up a little!
