My sister in law and I went to a new spot last night, Fenz. It was hip trendy and absolutely fabulous! The absolute perfect spot for a rehearsal dinner or private party! I felt as though we had escaped Lancaster for the evening and were in a downtown bar in Newport, R.I. It was great. We got their after they had stopped serving dinner, however, the bar bites kept our mouths watering. We order “French Fried Pickles” Very unique, but very good. Not to mention, I left smelling just as great as I entered…it is NON SMOKING!!
My wonderful mother just got me a subscription to Martha Stewart…how sweet of her In looking through the pages I stumbled upon a really pretty idea for winter wedding receptions….and so easy too.
Frosted Glass Vases with snowflakes“You don’t need a visit from Jack Frost to re-create the appearance of ice-glazed glass. You can “frost” inexpensive cylindrical glass vases with glass-frosting spray to make these candleholders. Use a snowflake craft punch to cut shapes from a self-adhesive laminating sheet. Affix snowflakes to outside of each vase. Apply glass-frosting spray (available at home-supply stores) in an even layer all over outside of vase; let dry. Using tip of a craft knife, carefully peel off stickers.” Courtesy of Martha Stewart
Also, a wonderful idea for place cards, which could also serve as favors for a “Silver and Gold” Themed Christmas wedding are picture frame ornaments! I picked these wonderful items up at The Christmas Tree Shops. This is a great home decorating store that displays wonderful decorating items at an unbeatable price all year round, not just for christmas junkies! These awesome beautiful frames are only $1.00 a piece!
One thing I love to recommend to my clients: bring your guestbook/signature mat, whatever it is that you are using bring it along to your rehearsal dinner! This way those closest to you, you bridal party, family, guests of honor will have time to sign it They will be busy on your big day and this way it guarantees that they get to write those special wishes to the bride and groom!
