wild waxed tissue

             And you thought animal print was only for prom! Rachel walked into the mall yesterday and was almost attacked by an entire display of animal print t-shirts for tweens. Hampshire paper has taken a cue from fashion and announced a new assortment of GO WILD prints and colors including Zebra, Cheetah, black, burnt orange and natural. This tissue matches the wildly popular corsage ribbon from Berwick Offray! Be sure to watch for ordering information coming soon!!

rave of the week…………………..……………………………

wedding wonderland

             What’s big in the wedding scene? Events inspired by the big screen! Big hits like Twilight and classics such as Great Expectations provide unlimited inspiration for your next event.  Check out this week’s fantastic post on Style Me Pretty, styled after one of this spring’s biggest hits, ‘Alice in Wonderland’.

             The design team took cues from classic Alice (china teacups) and Tim Burton’s moody twist (black lace tights) to create a look that is decidedly modern. Rich jewel tones and rustic details are the icing on this cupcake.  And, of course, what would a Wonderland wedding be without a rabbit?
