Lily Flower-Arch Backdrop Marriage Proposal

Hanging Lilies arch for alter
When Imran came to us he had no idea how he wanted to propose, but he knew it had to be special. His girlfriend, Lily, is very family oriented and loves flowers, so those were two easy aspects we knew we could involve in the proposal to make it thoughtful. But we needed one extra touch. We asked Imran to write a letter to Lily expressing his feelings and highlights of his proposal speech. The message he sent back to us was so sweet and kind! We had an amazing calligrapher create custom window frames and she wrote the love note on them in beautiful gold paint! Then we found the perfect park in Southern California with a great ocean view and everything else came together from there. Lily walked into the park and read each sign the family members were holding, then she walked up to Imran who stood in front of a custom archway created out of lilies (lilies for Lily!) and there he dropped down to one knee.

5 Ideas to Throw the Best Cookie Exchange Party Ever!

cookie exchange party
1. Have guests bring desserts other than cookies.  Cookies are fun, but so are marshmallows, brownies, candy, cupcakes, gingerbread houses, etc.  Don’t be afraid to assign guests certain desserts to keep a good mix going on.

2. Don’t forget the beverages!  Hello, hot cocoa bar.  Throw a little booze in the mix, and you’re in for a fun party!

3. Hold a competition.  See who’s cookie tastes best, who decorates their cookies the prettiest, who can eat the most cookies…. the options are endless.

4. Have a cookie (and dough) tasting.  Blindfold guests and have them taste spoons of cookie dough and guess the cookie.  The more wild the flavors, the better!
