#WeddingWednesday

16 Jul

Did you know today is #weddingwednesday?  Doing all things social media, I see all the trends and hashtags.  I have been married for quite some time and I started thinking about the trends when I said “I do” and realized how different they are now.

There was no Pinterest when I walked down the aisle.  I know how inspired (or “Pinspired”) I would have been with the truly amazing and creative ideas people pin.  At my niece’s recent bridal shower, I was in amazement at the ideas they came up with … all from Pinterest!  This Mimosa Drink station was probably my favorite from her shower.  Isn’t it adorable?

We’ve put together ideas for weddings on our Pinterest boards for you to get inspired from the engagement to the “I do” with ideas for invitations, color themes, favors and much more.   Tell us your creative ideas whether it was for your own wedding or if you helped plan someone’s bridal shower or wedding.  I’d love to hear what fun ideas you came up with!

A fantastical unique wonderful gift idea (need I say more?)

14 Jul

There’s nothing I like better than to give a wonderful but unlikely gift.  I know that everyone thinks I love stationery.  And, I do, don’t get me wrong.  But my favorite go-to gift for a few years now has been a fabulous set of personalized Post-it® Notes.

Now let’s face it, Post-its® are not something that most people think of getting for themselves.  And that’s the reason it’s just so incredibly perfect.

* They are useful.

* They are personalized.

* They are cute.

* They come in great designs and great colors.

* They are an ideal for women or men or teens.

* They are unique.

*  They are the kind of gift that will be remembered (in a good way!).

So pick your style, pick your color and we’ll create a little gift that will go a long way.

These little paper confections are a great gift for every occasion that I can think of – holidays, birthdays, graduations, housewarming and more.

Enjoy!

Warmly,

Renee

Summer Party Favorite: Peanut Butter Bars

10 Jul

This weekend I have two parties to attend and was asked to bring a dessert.  When it’s summer, I always fall back on my Grandma’s Peanut Butter Bars.  This recipe was handed down to me years ago and has been a favorite ever since.  People always ask me “Are you bringing your peanut butter bars?”  I could probably make them in my sleep (although I’d rather not).  I thought I’d share the recipe so you, too, can be the hit at your next Summer BBQ or get together.  If you make them, let me know how everyone liked (or LOVED) them!

75648_977Dorothy Congdon’s Peanut Butter Bars

3 c. graham cracker crumbs

1 stick butter, melted

2 c. powdered sugar

18 oz. peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)

Frosting:

1 (12 oz) pkg. milk chocolate chips

1 stick butter, melted

Mix graham cracker crumbs, butter, powdered sugar and peanut butter in a bowl until moist.  Press into a 9 x 13 inch pan.  Heat butter and chocolate chips until melted.  Pour on top and smooth with a knife.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.  Cut into squares and serve.  *You can substitute margarine for butter and use semi-sweet chocolate chips if you prefer.

Enjoy!
