Meet: Hip Hues in Nashville!

We’re always looking for the next best thing, and wedding entertainment is no different! As to be expected, we had such a great time at our Nashville Wedding Planner’s Group meeting, and of course we had an awesome activity: Hip Hues Screen Printing.  Sisters Sondra and Tracy started this amazing social screen printing system where they will come to your private event and set up your guests with a (custom!) design that they can take with them on a shirt, bag, or slew of other awesome items!

Are you a foodie and want your guests to all take home aprons they make with your logo on them?  Or have a bachelorette party and want all the ladies in the same shirts that you get to make together?  Done.  And they’ll even help you create a logo that’s perfect for your event.

The NWPG ladies had a blast testing it out with our own logo which we put onto banners and shirts. It was a fun and easy activity, I can’t wait to frame my print and put it on my wall!  Contact Hip Hues for your next event!

Crafty Bottles

For my most recent wedding we were on a little bit of a tight budget, so I had to pull some creative craftiness out of minimal dollars to get some good design going.  Now we’ve all seen empty wine bottles used on tables for decor, and it make for great fun (especially getting the bottles empty), but our tables needed color and “filling” because there were no pre-set place settings.

Since of course, I had came up with this idea a good month before the wedding, I had to ask my neighbors and friends, who all drink a plenty, to kindly donate any empty bottles to my abode.  It was like Christmas waking up to new wine bottles on my doorstep daily!Image

Fortunately, I didn’t need to save the labels, so it was pretty easy to soak them in sudsy water for a few hours and then peel off and scrub off the labels.  *Great tip if you ever want to keep the labels, (I know I have a wine book where I keep labels of fav bottles for reference – yes, big dork), turn on your oven at 400 and place bottle inside for 10 mins. It will help make the adhesive sticky, then with one hand hold with a pot holder, and carefully with finger nails peel off the label.  Should work!*
After getting the bottles nice and naked, I bought some metallic gold spray paint and went to work!

Then it’s up to you to decide how you’d like to dress ’em up.  Keep ’em plain, put something inside, write the table name on the bottle, tie a ribbon!  Regardless, they’re so much prettier in gold for some reason.  Great marketing idea … maybe I’ll sell it to Rombaur… 😉
