The card box…




A few weeks ago I started a discussion over at the Martha Stewart Weddings boards about card boxes….its not something many magazines seem to focus on, but I think its a real concern for brides. Unfortunately, all the ones I’ve seen are completely unacceptable for the modernist in me! I’m talking frilly bows, treasure chests, fake cakes…why people, why??? Why isn’t someone out there making a simple, clean looking box? Someone on the board came up with the idea of having a plexi box made and covering the insides with corresponding paper in your wedding colors….this is definitely an idea I’ve played with and will probably test it out over at Plexi-Craft. Plexi-Craft actually already makes 2 boxes that could work….the What Not box and the Suggestion Box….both include locks and can be customized in size. Pricing isn’t too bad either. Other ideas I’ve toyed with are slicing a slit into a Kolo photo box, getting a modernist birdcage and spray lacquering it green or white, or having Chad build an architectural model, like this one from Weddingbee.

So I’m asking you ladies…..is this something you think about? Does the box even need a lock? Have you found any cool, modern ideas to solve this problem?

Wine Cellar Sorbet


I must be on some dessert kick, because I just remembered Wine Cellar Sorbet….I tasted their Rose and Sangria flavors a few weeks back at Atlantic Antic, and I’ve got to say, its pretty authentic….I normally HATE wine but I would totally eat this. I can see it for a more sophisticated version of the ice cream bar…or paired with a delicate dessert cake…lovely for bridal showers!

Candle table numbers


What a fabulous idea! Just break out your decoupage glue and some hip giftwrap or paper and get gluing on those candles…..

Tinsel @ ABC Carpet and Home




Heavens to Betsy! I happened in on ABC a few days ago and found Tinsel, an offshoot of the Tinsel Trading Company, with an area of their very own, chock full of vintage buttons, ribbons and flowers. I left with my wallet a little lighter but very excited to put my purchases to use….[see the olive and black silk corsage and white flowers on the right in the first pic]

Tinsel is located at 888 Broadway @ 19th Street, 1st floor near the registers.
