Whether you are newly engaged or have been married a while (or just have a special piece of jewelry!), trinket dishes are inexpensive, beautiful and fun to make. Make our DIY engagement ring bowl for yourself or as a gift for someone else. So practical and pretty!

Your wedding is a joyous occasion! It’s a time to be surrounded by family and friends and celebrate your love and union. Of course, at times, thoughts turn to those who have passed and can’t be there with you. There are several ways you can remember lost loved ones at your wedding, and here are some of our favorites from local brides.

My husband and I recently celebrated our 23rd anniversary (so crazy how much time flies!), so when we were invited to stay at Graduate Charlottesville in Virginia, we took the opportunity to incorporate the lovely hotel into our anniversary plans. We had a wonderful time exploring a town that is close to home while also enjoying Heirloom for both dinner and brunch during our stay at Graduate. I can’t wait to share more about our stay!

Whether you are looking for stylish pieces for yourself or (yay!) for a cold weather honeymoon, be sure to consult our winter fashion trends for advice. You can go full force and incorporate many tips or just pick and choose a few of your favorites. There are so many fun options! We sought out our tips from one of our favorite Lynchburg, Virginia clothing stores, Gladiola Girls. Have fun learning some of the trends!

Yay! Another year is ending and a new one beginning. I love all things being fresh and new – especially when it comes to love! Imagine starting your new year as a brand new newlywed. So fun! Our Charlottesville, Virginia New Year’s Eve wedding inspiration is full of shimmer, shine and lovely ideas for your own celebration as you count down to your own nuptials.

Ok, folks, believe it or not, these cutie pie snacks are oh so easy to make. Just melt, dip, sprinkle, stir… these white chocolate holiday treats truly are a breeze. I have a collection of four fun ones I found around the web for a TV segment I did, so be sure to watch the video at the end (you may even see me break a pretzel, ha – it’s live!). These are adorable for wedding favors or on a reception candy bar. And, of course, they are perfect for any Christmas party. Enjoy!
