How adorable are is this couple<3

Dear Loves..

Sorry again for the delay on these posts. I’ve been swamped with many different projects that are in the making. Anyhow.. today’s inspiration comes from my random sweet tooth splurge for something and anything sweet. And what better way to incorporate something sweet in your wedding than the wedding cake itself right?

So many brides today are stepping out of the traditional wedding ideas and jumping into a more modern outlook on their grand day. Instead of the usual 3 or 4 tier wedding cakes with flowers flowing all around the display, some brides have turned to the ideas of CAKE POPS and or CUPCAKES.  Read the rest of this entry ?

2013: Year of the Snake

February 18, 2013
2013 Chinese New Year.. Year of the Snake
2013 Chinese New Year.. Year of the Snake by bchhuor on Polyvore
Dear Loves, 
Sorry for the posting “delays”.. Life happens as you all know it 🙂
Anyhow.. today’s inspiration is… CHINESE NEW YEAR! Happy New Year to all my fellow Asians out there and to those who celebrated the day with us just because :). This year is the year of the Snake which means ” The Snake is the intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animal Signs. They are attractive people who take cries with ease and do not become flustered easily. They are graceful people, exciting and dark at the same time.” (more info on the Snake and other Chinese Horoscopes can be found on http://www.usbridalguide.com).
Each and every New Years Eve, my family and I will always get together for lunch and dinner with homemade goodies made by Chef mommy and Sous Chef sister. Always great food with great company and of course all the unmarried kids await for the most anticipated “RED ENVELOPE”. If you guys have no idea what this Red Envelope is, (shame on you 🙂 I kid I kid!!) the Red Envelops is a tradition passed down from ancestors to ancestors. Given by the Elders to the children in the family, each envelop represents great future, health and prosperity. It could possibly mean other things.. but from what I know that is what the Red Envelops mainly represent. Inside these envelops are, almost always, money with whatever amount the adult decides to throw in. These envelops are given to children and young adults up until either they are married or are 21 depending on what they’re parents believe in. Me.. well lets just say I’m not 21 nor am I married (not even close:(  ).. it’s a win win situation for me 🙂 Read the rest of this entry ?

Candlelight Romance

January 29, 2013

Candlelight Centerpiece

Dear Loves,

Happy Monday to all. It’s January 28 in Sunny California..Took the weekend off for some downtime and so should you. 🙂  Today’s inspiration comes from the Bridal Show that I worked at this weekend at the Hilton Hotel in Ontario. Some people say they would never work weekends cause that’s they’re relax, veg out days but I say, if its something worth waking up to, I’m DOWN! and this I was totally down for. Just in case you didn’t know, to all the brides who live in Southern California, once to twice a month, there is always a Bridal Show located in different Hotels or Convention Centers. If you or you know a bride who needs extra inspiration, help, or fun, come out to the Bridal Shows near you and come see whats new, gorgeous and the latest wedding trends. You also get to experience a wedding gown fashion show, free tastings and giveaways. It’s always fun to see whats going on in the wedding world with other brides just like you.

Anyways back on track… currently I am working at a Wedding/Event planning group and our booth, for some great reason, received the most compliments and votes despite how crammed the entire event was. (It was crammed in a good way of course.. brides + entourage + fashion show + 32 different booths to choose from.. go figure.. ). After talking to these brides and seeing and hearing what they were looking for, they all complimented on the centerpiece that was displayed on our table. (The photo above is the centerpiece that we created for the expo). Many brides now are leaning towards this candlelight centerpiece look/style. This creative creation alone speaks for itself.. don’t you agree??

Flashback with me for a minute..

The Thousand Cranes Wedding

January 23, 2013
A Thousand Cranes Wedding

A Thousand Cranes Wedding

Dear Loves, 

Some of us brides-to-be have always dreamed of our fairy tale weddings and others, well some of us never really thought of it until the day he fell down on his one knee and asked for your hand in marriage. Not every girl has been planning her one special day since she laid eyes on the most beautiful wedding dress at 4 years old. Some of us have ideas from minor to every detail to.. well nothing at all. Well to all my future brides out there, luckily social media has your back. There’s so much out there that can help inspire you to find the perfect theme to your wedding. Whether it’s a sweet simple picnic wedding to a traditional church wedding, not matter what your ideas are, there’s a lending hand out there for you. (hint hint: this page 🙂 )

For some odd reason, I began thinking of origami; how when I was a little girl my friends and I use to fold papers into little creations. We would write letters to each other (as if we didn’t see each other 5 days a week at school already.. we just had to write letters to each other.. yeah you know what I’m talking about ^_~ ) We use to fold money into hearts or boxes, papers into planes or balls, small squared papers into something smaller than what it already was. Then I began thinking of cranes and how to fold cranes.. and all of a sudden.. this idea of a 1000 cranes wedding hit me.

If we don’t know much about this 1000 cranes story, lets quickly unfold this folding topic. During World War II, a young Japaneses girl by the name of Sadako Sasaki was caught in the middle of history. At the age of 2, her town was bombed causing her to be exposed to radiation. Luckily she was found and saved by he mother. As years went by, her condition began to worsen and was soon diagnosed with Leukemia from the radiation. By the time she was 12, time was running short for her. Her school friends came up with the idea of her folding cranes and so this tradition begins.

In Japan, the idea of the 1000 cranes became a legend for “one’s true wish”. By folding a 1000 cranes by one person, he/she will be granted one wish and only one wish. Now traditionally, this gift is given as a newborns gift, wedding gift, housewarming gift etc. Of course like many legends, stories always change, it used to be only the person folding the cranes can grant that wish, others say if you receive it and they wish you the luck as the receiver that wish will also be granted by the gods.

Who knows what the actual rule is but the concept of  “one’s true wish” couldn’t be as perfect for a wedding theme could it? We all wish the best for the newlyweds with gifts and money, why not an actual wish from the cranes. Yes that is a LOT of folding and yes your hands will cramp up but to live happily every after with your new husband, isn’t that every girls wish?

By using your own imagination, there’s clearly so much you can do with a thousand cranes..I’m pretty sure you will not run out of cranes 🙂 By stringing them and hanging them along the walls with lights shinning from below, the silhouettes of the cranes against the curtains makes sweet romantic yet young scene in the dark. Cranes around the sweetheart table, centerpieces, the brides bouquets, flower girls hair accessories.. the imagination goes on.

So imagine on and Happy Folding and Good Luck  🙂
