Never again will partygoers accidentally leave their favors behind when they head home at the end of the night. “This year, brides and grooms are sending guests away with gifts thoughtfully selected to be utilized and enjoyed in their everyday lives,” says Dayna. Because in an age of increasing attention to clutter (thank you, Marie Kondo), functional is the name of the game, and the most popular picks of the moment are the ones designed to be put to use—or even consumed, like these petite, personalized servings of coffee and honey.

Good news for all engaged Friends fanatics: “Over the last few years, ‘90s trends have resurfaced in both the fashion and home decor realms, and now they’re taking hold for weddings,” says Dayna. Think classic slip dresses, dazzling rhinestone accessories, reception-ready fanny packs, and—a nod to everyone’s favorite old-school hair clip—a butterfly-adorned bridal headpiece. So whether you were rooting for Ross and Rachel from the get-go (they were on a break!), or more invested in Monica and Chandler’s covert affair, celebrate your own love story surrounded by a slew of throwback touches straight out of Central Perk.


Don’t know how, but I just came across your blog and I am having a ball looking around at all the wonderful images you have posted. You really inspire me, because I too am a country gal and from one country woman to another, you have great ideas and taste!! I want to thank you for all the “free bees”. You are very kind and generous. I have no doubt some of the things I see are going to end up in my home!
You wouldn’t get everyone in your life the same birthday present, so don’t settle for anything less than the perfect happy birthday card for your honoree. Start with a card featuring cake, macarons, or balloons in vivid colors and patterns that you’d never find at the party supply store. Cards stamped in silver, rose gold, and gold foil make every birthday a milestone (we won’t guess which one). There are even new rainbow and holographic foil choices for the recipient who lives in the future, but can’t resist a wee bit of sparkle. For something truly unique to the two of you, our photo birthday cards let you use a snapshot as the backdrop to your fond wishes—a lovely memento of the previous year, and the many more to come. It’s easy to add photos, crop and filter them, and accentuate your delivery with an envelope liner or designed online backdrop. If you’re a label-conscious gift-giver, pick out a card from design luminaries and master stationers like kate spade new york and Mr. Boddington’s Studio. There’s something for pretty, witty, or just plain silly birthday boys and girls, at every level of taste and rarefaction. (And laughs. Don’t forget laughs.) We’ll make it easier to deliver, too. Once you’ve chosen just the right card for your superannuated friend, use our online design tool to customize the wording and wrap up any lingering details with a figurative bow.

One of our favorite games to play, giddy in our seats, while awaiting a bride’s first steps down the aisle is “guess the veil.” And if last year was all about glittery, jazzed-up versions that can affectionately be described as “extra,” this year brides are switching things up yet again, often opting to forgo veils entirely. “Brides are turning traditionalism on its head—literally—and rethinking the classic veil with showstopping modern alternatives,” says Dayna. From bridal hats to feathered headpieces, there’s a fresh head-topper for every bridal style.
Etsy's main office is located in Dumbo, Brooklyn, and it has hosted open crafting classes in the Etsy Labs.[35] The site's technology, customer support, marketing, PR, business, and communications teams operate out of this office. Etsy Labs has a workspace that provides equipment and donated materials, where members gather to make items, take and teach workshops, and attend special events.[36] Etsy also has an office in Berlin.[37] In April 2012, Etsy announced that it was taking steps to hire more women engineers to improve the gender balance of its team, as a website with majority women users but few women engineers.[38] By 2019, 30 percent of Etsy's engineers identified as "women or non-binary", and over 30 percent were people of color.[39]
Have I made my point yet?  They are not kidding when they say bioDIVERSITY.  There is literally every form of living thing available to choose from.  Butterflies and water fowl, more frogs, turtles and lizards than I ever knew existed.  Weird fancy pigeons, big and small game animals…it just goes on and on and on.  The only bad part is you can’t search for specific images but hey, it’s free!
