I always get into trouble when I walk into World Market, as they always have such an array of great things for the home, cool gifts, exotic foods and more. I had to share the latest cute deal, these fun tea light glass lanterns. They could be used as aisle runners, centerpieces, extra decorations around the reception venue and more. Gotta love the candlelight!
Don't you love the look on someone's face when they get the absolutely best gift? Well, get the camera ready, because I found a great website with gift ideas to show your fiance, parents, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and other important people in your life just how much they mean to you… http://www.excitations.com/ This website by the Discovery Channel has combined all sorts of extraordinary experiences that you can give as gifts that turn into amazing memories. Everything from sports car racing to a guided ATV tour to a romantic hot air balloon is yours to choose from. Some great ideas for now… or future birthday, anniversary and other celebration ideas!
DC is the land of non-profits so I thought I would share an idea for those brides interested in giving back. I just found out about Kiva, a website where you can identify the individual entrepreneur in a third world country that you will be lending to in order to help them get out of poverty. If you want to show your guests how much you care, why not skip flowers as a centerpiece and send that money to one of these people, then create a unique centerpiece with their picture and story? Simple votives and favors can help decorate the table and you've got an instant conversation starter. http://www.kiva.org/
