ellyB Finds: Panty by Post

Posted in Uncategorized

I just love the blogging community. If you are not familiar with the blogging community, bloggers usually unite and share ideas, coffee, cocktails and a yearning for taking our blogs up a notch. We want to make sure that our readers are getting what they need from our blog and consider us a source to bring new content and fresh ideas. 

My wonderful friend Tami from Talking with Tami alerted me of this fabulous company – Panty by Post!

Let’s face it, we do not always have time every month to go to the mall and pick up beautiful underwear.  Panty by Post is a monthly subscription of receiving pretty lovely lingerie monthly by mail.  These European style lovelies come in several different size of panties, colors, and sizes to choose from, the gift recipient will definitely feel like the purchase was customized just for them. The gift is very affordable and comes complete in perfect pretty packaging.

These lovelies will serve as a perfect gift for the bride to be for her bridal shower, bridesmaids, or for you wife as a just thinking about you gift.  Don’t forget it is ok to get your own self a subscription!

Mason Jars with handles…

Posted in Uncategorized

There is nothing like Southern charm then drinking your drink of choice in a mason jar.  While doing some research for a client, I came across these CUTE mason jars that have handles. What a cute twist on the traditional mason jars that we have seen served at weddings with signature drinks?

Here are some great ways to get the most use out of the mason jars:

  • Pick a signature drink with a color so that it pops!
  • Use garnishes such as lemon wedges, cherries or limes to add a little flare
  • Accent with cute drink flags with your names and wedding date on one side and the drink with recipe on the other side

ellyB Couples – Amanda and Jason

Posted in Uncategorized

We are just smitten with the engagement pictures of Amanda and Jason captured by the fabulous David Murray Weddings. The couple will be getting married this winter at the Piedmont Driving Club. We cannot wait to share their wedding day with you!

Amanda and Jason decided to hope into a vintage Porsche for their engagement session. What makes this picture even more memorable is that the couple will use the pictures silhouette on their wedding invitations!

Here are some tips on how to carry the image out throughout your home:

  • Blow up the picture and hang in your social areas of your home
  • Have a little picture frame that will hold your invitation or another piece of art that reminds you of that moment
  • Hang your engagement picture near your wedding picture so you can relive the journey at all times

ellyB Tips: Bathroom Baskets

Posted in Wedding Day Details

Can you remember the last time you had a night out on the town and you forgot something? That one little annoying thing you were sure you had at the bottom of your purse such as a hair holder or mint?

Placing bathroom baskets in your common bathrooms, leaves your guests with the feeling that you have now included them in your big day and it is not all about the couple. You went an extra step to ensure that their needs were taken care of if an issue should arise.

Here are a list of items that you can include in your baskets (keep in mind most of the items can be purchased in the travel section of your favorite store for around .99 cents):

Double Sided Tape

Pain Reliever

Krazy Glue

Chapstick

Floss

Lint Roller

Shout Wipes

Tide-To-Go Stick

Interactive Stations – The Cookie Bar

Posted in Interactive Stations, Wedding Favors, Dessert Bars

What makes any kind of interactive station ideal is that 60% of the time your guests have never seen anything like it before. Naturally when I saw this cookie bar on Project Wedding I knew I had to share with my readers.  There are so many ways to take this idea and make it your own.  Consider the following when creating your own cookie bar:

  • Get together with your family and friends and bake cookies that have been passed down for generations
  • Pick sweets that you share with your love ones, then share with your guests
  • Visit a local shop that will be able to customize a new flavor that represent your new union

If you are looking for more interactive stations, check out our posts on s’mores, popcorn and even cupcakes!

ellyB Tips: Slipper Baskets at Weddings

Posted in Uncategorized

It’s great when couples decide to do this added touch for their guests. Of course we can say it is the ladies responsibility to wear comfortable shoes, but chances are they want to show up looking their best for a day you took forever planning.  Who does not want a good looking crowd?

Having a slipper basket is a little gesture to show your guests that you are glad they came looking all spiffy but you now would like them to kick back and relax. The cost of the slipper basket is very inexpensive. Here are some reasons why you would want to have a slipper basket at your next event:

  • You can further customize your details with a sweet message complete with your branding included
  • Guests will remember that your wedding day was not all about YOU
  • A packed dance floor all night!
  • Slippers serve as a keepsake for the ones that wear them

Here are some ideas on how to create the perfect slipper basket:

  • Buy a plain wicker basket for about four bucks and spray paint it the color of your wedding
  • Purchase the mesh wine bags (perfect size for slippers) at your local dollar store
  • DIY the tags with your message and monogram
  • Purchase the slipper online at a wholesaler or a local craft store.  They are usually a dollar as well

This little project can go a long way!

June Blogger’s Brunch Hosted by Talking with Tami

Posted in Uncategorized

Last week I was invited to a private bloggers brunch hosted by the fabulous pinktastic blogger Talking with Tami.  Not only does this media powerhouse operate one of the most popular blog in Atlanta, but she has a TV show as well. So needless to say I was stoked when I received this personal invitation.

All of the amazing food was catered by the amazing Davide DeCuir of www.decuirgourmet.com. His little cafe was the perfect setting for brunch.

The fabulous Tami Reed!

Thanks so much for the invite Tami.  I look forward to many more events with you in the future.
