Fabulous Fall Finds

In my  humble opinion, Fall is the very best time of year for a wedding... 
The colors are beautiful and the air is crisp.  There is no fear of wilting hair, runny make up, or sweltering guests.  Take a look as some of my favorite finds for this fabulous season. 
Fall Flowers
What' hot this year...pale blues, all shades of orange,  deep burgundy.. and we cannot forget the REDS...
 How sweet is this???
Autumn Themed Tablescapes..
Nothing says Fall like adding some items from the harvest...Apples and Pumpkins!!!
Give a pumpkin a coat of paint..and you have a whole new look. 
Pumpkin Martini...need I say more?
Pumpkin Martini Ingredients
1/2 oz Sylk Cream Liqueur
2 oz vanilla vodka
1/2 oz pumpkin liqueur or pumpkin spice syrup
1 tsp whipped cream
cinnamon stick for garnish
Pour the Sylk Liqueur and vodka into a shaker filled with ice.
Shake well.
Add the pumpkin liqueur or syrup.
Shake again.
Strain into a chilled cocktail.
Top with a teaspoon of whipped cream.
Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
Floating Star Martini
2 oz Bourbon
2 oz Apple Cider
1/2 oz Pomegranate Liqueur

1 Apple
Star Anise Clove
Prepare Garnish: slice apple thinly across the apple to reveal the star shaped center.
Place in a bowl of ice water & juice from half a lime. This preserves the white of the apple.

  1. Food is undoubtedly my weakness, so I reserved Wedding venues Seattle where I especially mentioned to offer delicious food. So now I have one more reason to wait for my big day.
