We are currently obsessed with this beautiful Rainbow Paper Garland by Makeshop!! We also love that this garland is hand-sewn in Brooklyn! It is perfect for any and every occasion. String it up for a party, use it as a table runner, or use it as ribbon for wrapping presents! Available in two lengths so you can use a lot or a little. It adds that special touch and will have your friends and family in awe of your decorating expertise.

Same-sex marriage has been gaining a lot of momentum lately, and we are in full support! The Obama administration’s recent brief to the US Supreme Court calling for broad constitutional protection will hopefully lead to nation-wide recognition of gay unions. Even President Bill Clinton, who signed the Defense of Marriage Act into law is urging that it now be struck down as unconstitutional. It’s encouraging to see such a shift in perception. If you haven’t yet heard the heartwarming story of a gay couple finding a baby on the subway, you must read this. And grab some tissues. They were finally able to legalize their marriage just last year. Love is love regardless of sex, race, or ethnicity, and we need to put an end to all forms of discrimination.

We had a GREAT time at the New York Magazine Wedding Event on Wednesday evening at the Met Pavillion in Chelsea. I was a bad girl though and completely was so in the moment the whole time we were there that I totally forgot to take any pictures of our cute table. Of course I remembered when we had packed everything away so that is a little picture of me above toting out our haul when the event wrapped up. If you are getting married anytime soon, or know anyone who is- send them our way for great ideas for Wedding Favors and Gifts for the Bridal Party, Flower Girls, Ring Bearers, Kids Table Goodies, whatever!! At the event we pulled together some cute welcome baskets for out of town guests, bundles of treats for the little ones, and tons of ideas to make your special day even more memorable. It’s all in the details as we know, and we can help you with that! Please check out our wedding items online, as well as other sections on our site like Goodies & Gags (I can’t tell you what a big hit the Stylish Mustaches were- image grandma in a ball gown, dancing with a mustache, PRICELESS photo op, and great for Photo booths too) and Brooklyn (Handy Heart Maps, Maptotes, all major hits!), for ideas for treats for the guests. And I would LOVE to help you personalize your treats so they are uniquely your own, just email me and we can start the ideas rolling! Cheers! firstname.lastname@example.org
