Herb it Up!

More and more, herbs are becoming a permanent fixture on the modern day wedding scene. They are the perfect touch to so many aspects of your wedding. They add a rustic feel and a wonderful, fresh and unexpected fragrance.

And…….. this can totally be a DIY project. Spend time with your honey and grow some rosemary, basil, thyme, whatever your little heart  desires. Trust me if I can grow herbs, anyone can. I have what I like to call a black thumb, because that is the color my plants turn because apparently watering them is not a priority for me :) Anywho, seeds are cheap and they go a long way. You will have bundles and bundles of herbs before you know it and a wonderful addition to your wedding day!

Here are a few idea’s to get the ball rolling:

Drink of the Week: Champagne, Pomegranate and Clementine Cocktail

Drinks No Comments by Nicole

Try and tell me that this cocktail doesn’t sound like drinking summer out of a glass. I dare you. Plus champagne makes everything classy doesn’t it? If that’s not a rule yet, it should be. Says me.
