Lovely Wooden Escort Card Holders … February 24, 2010

I am here to share, and more importantly, show you some more fabulous Rental items we have!

We discussed our Lovely Wooden Tables HERE {just in case you want to take a second peek}.

Today, I would like to focus on how your special guests find their table {or more specifically their seat}.

As many of you know, there is a difference in an escort card and a place card.  Here is what you need to know:

ESCORT CARD:  A card given to the guests before they enter the reception that states the guest name and table number

PLACE CARD: A card that is already at the guest designated table and place setting.  Typically if there is no escort card, then there is a lovely way to let guests know which table they will be sitting at … this can be an escort card, a “map” of the reception, frames for each table with their names, and the list could go on and on!

So, for a fun, unique and simply Kentucky style wedding … we have custom made some Lovely Wooden Escort Card Holders.


Here’s the Info:

* Each Wooden Holder has 10 slats for cards

* Each Wooden Holder is 24 inches {2 ft} long

* Each Wooden Holder is stained a dark cherry

SO ….. what do you think?  We hope you like them just as much as we do!

If interested in renting these lovely wooden escort card holders for your wedding or special event, please contact our office at 859.271.1499 and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Celebrating Kentucky Natives … February 23, 2010

If there is one thing we love to incorporate into a wedding ………… it’s Kentucky!!!

No matter the product, tradition, venue or favor, we think honoring Kentucky in your wedding is fabulous!  We have just stumbled upon a Kentucky native that would be a great person to honor … Duncan Hines

Yes, the same Duncan Hines that has brought us brownie mix, cookie mix, muffin mix and frostings to go with it all! I love Mr. Hines … {my hips don’t} … but I do!

Duncan Hines origanlly started in Bowling Green, Kentucky before branching out to Procter and Gamble!

So the question is … How can I honor Duncan Hines at my wedding?!  This is so easy … have milk and brownie shooters. Ask your caterer to make bite-sized Duncan Hines brownies and serve them in shot glasses full of milk.


This is great for the after party OR for a subistute for cake  OR a midnight snack OR any occassion that you want them for!

Let us know your ideas and send in your pretty pics …

Tutu’s for Flowergirls …

FLOWER GIRLS …   There are so many sweet things to say about these cute little girls that let guests know the bride is on her way by creating a walk way for her.  Most flowergirls take their job very seriously and believe they have important duties for the day!

A hot new trend for brides is to have a “party dress” for the reception.  How cute would it be for the flower girl to have one as well? As we know, the flower girl is the bride’s mini-me for the day! 

At the Kentucky Bride Bridal Show, a new vendor, Tutu’s and Teacups, had adorable tutu’s for flowergirls. 

Below are more photos of the precious Tutu’s and Teacups collection which is available at Mod Boutique and Sugar and Spice!


Also, in the new issue of  Kentucky Bride Magazine, there is an article featuring tutu’s {modeled by Jaime’s daughter, Gracie, and Julie’s daughter, Story}.  These lovely tutu’s were provided by Miss Priss Tutus www.missprisstutus.com

girls just want to have fun … and these girls are smiling the whole time they are “dressed up”


jaimeson’s personal favorite … just had to put in


love this shot of the girls running …


and after all of that running … the girls are just gabbin’ by the fire {ah bliss}


So, if you’ve already chosen that perfect flower girl dress that coordinates with your colors and style for the ceremony, don’t forget that  Tutu’s would be a great THANK YOU present from the couple, especially if the little ladies could wear them to the “dance party” {a.k.a. reception} as their own party dress!!!
