Carribean Paradise - Create the Look for Less!

Hello everyone!  Its been such a long time since I've blogged!  So many exciting things have happened over the past several months and I'll be ready to share my new design package collections, and a brand new website next month!

In the meantime, summer is underway and plenty of brides are doing tropical weddings.  Below are some photos from one of our award winning, custom designed weddings that took place in the Hamptons at a vineyard.

A gorgous, vibrant bouquet of protea, circus roses and orange & yellow lillies.

The beautiful ceremony took place in the vineyard, with a custom bamboo chuppa.  Turquoise organze was flowing in the wind along with sheer tangerine colored chair sashes.  This made for gorgeous photo ops!

Reception table centerpieces consisted of cymbidium orchids submerged in water with thin bamboo rods with mokara orchids attached.  This sat upon a monstera leaf with bamboo table runner, and accents of bamboo votives.

For our DIY brides --you too can create a similar look for less for your cocktail hour centerpieces!  
Purchase a small bubble bowl vase and fill with green acrylic crystals.  Add water and float a protea flower on top.  Add a colorful placemat - either orange or tuquoise to pump up the volume and create that tropical atmosphere!  These simple items can be purchased at places like Michael's Craft Store or Christmas Tree Shops.  So what are you waiting for?  Create your tropical wedding paradise today!

Rock it out!

Over the Top Cake Toppers!

Welcome to "Feature Friday!"
This week's hot pick?  Bling Cake Toppers

Bling Cake Toppers, based out of Ohio, make cake toppers and other cake and bridal bouquet decorations that are covered in Swarovski crystalsany letter and any number in just about any font.  If you want your cake to sparkle and dazzle, Bling Cake Toppers are the one for you!

We asked Diane Bradley, the owner of Bling Cake Toppers, how she got her start designing cake toppers, and here's what she said:
"I started the company because I have a knack for the arts and crafts. My aunt was turning 90 and I was responsible for planning the whole event. Turning 90 was cause for a major celebration and I wanted to put extra emphasis on the "90" at the top of her cake. I made my first cake topper and it looked fabulous! My husband was the person who inspired me to turn making cake toppers into a business. He saw me make the first topper and noticed that the activity was not a chore, but more of a labor of love and he planted the seed of "why don't you offer to make toppers like those for others who want them?" This was the start of Bling Cake Toppers."

What's so special about Bling Cake Toppers?
There are over 100 crystal color options to choose from!  Why, because Diane understands "bride speak", the language of brides.  What that means is, if your wedding colors are "pool blue" or "eggplant purple", Diane understands exactly what you are referring to and she can coordinate the crystals to match!

What does the Brower Power Design Team love about Bling Cake Toppers?
Bling Cake Toppers are not just for weddings!  They can be a fabulous addition for birthdays, anniversaries, bar/bat mitzvah, quinceaneras, and any other event that has a celebratory cake.  And best of all, Diane can customize your topper!  They are not limited to just letters and numbers -- if you send Diane your image file that can be converted to a pdf, she can make your custom shape!  Super cool!!!

Can I afford a "custom" Bling Cake Topper?
The answer is yes!  Dont let the word "custom" scare you away from your perfect topper because you fear it will be to costly. Most times, there is no increase in price for a custom topper. Pricing is based per image/object, letter, or number. The price you pay is determined by the height you want your topper and is not dependent on the letter, number, or object you choose. Pricing range from $45 for the 3 inch height to $145 for the 6 inch height.

What other products does Bling Cake Toppers offer besides cake toppers?
Bling Cake Toppers also sells ribbon letters and keepsake stands and frames. Ribbon letters are covered in the same Swarovski crystals as the toppers and can be used to decorate any bouquet. This is an option for an unexpected flare for any bouquets and are a great option as a bridesmaid wedding gift.  And your cake toppers are much to pretty to only make a one time appearance at your premier event.  Get your name, date, or event title embossed on a wooded stand or shadow box frame and display your beautiful topper on the mantle of your fireplace, on your end table or nightstand, or hang in a special place in your home. These toppers make prominent statements well after the event is over and make for a wonderful conversation piece!
