This Weeks Fabulous Find.....

This weeks fabulous find is CardGirl Custom Invitations. We featured CardGirl a few months back however Nessa Sander of CardGirl  has just launched her new line of ECO CHIC invitations and they are oh so fabulous and oh so Earth Friendly! A Savvy Event has numerous ways to make your wedding GREEN and invitations is just the beginning! 
Earth Day is April 20th so we are going to be featuring ways to be earth friendly and GREEN! So to start if off we have a little Q&A with Nessa of CardGirl.

~Thank you Nessa for being apart of our GREEN month of events and  Fabulous Vendors~

q: So what are eco-chic invitations?
a: I have found that many of the eco-friendly invitation lines are very rustic and earthy looking , but not all "green" brides want that look. So I have designed a line of invitations that are eco-friendly, yet have a more elegant design.

q: What makes an invitation eco-friendly?
a: My eco-chic line of invitations are printed using a soy-based ink onto recycled or tree-free paper (made from cotton) card stock.

q:What are some other ways to be eco-friendly with your wedding stationary?
a: I encourage brides to use postcards as their reply cards. Postcards eliminate the need for an extra envelope. Also, when thinking about ribbon, a raw silk (dupioni) is a fabulous option. It's also great if you can include as many inserts as possible in your invitation mailing, so that you are not mailing as many separate invitations to your guests. A really fun idea for table names (or numbers) is to have your calligrapher write them on a rock or something fun from nature.

q: Do you think most brides feel if you go green it is boring?
a: Yes, I still think that most brides have the conception that if it is green or earth friendly it isn't going to look as pretty or as nice as something that is not earth friendly, that is not true...Green can be hip fun and chic!!! 

Happy Earth Day and for your wedding Go Green...Go Eco-Chic....Nessa Sander, Owner of Cardgirl Custom Invitations

Bakerella (above & below)
Cupcakes Galore!
So this week is Cupcake Week on Martha Stewart and I just LOVE cupcakes. So brilliant of her to have a whole week dedicated to CUPCAKES!
Cupcakes are just the perfect size, usually so moist and yummy and they are just oh so cute!
Today on Martha...Bakerella was featured! We just stumbled upon her blog a few months ago and she has such great baking ideas! The last two photos are her mini cupcake pops and they are so cute! Sticking with the "bridal shower" theme of things I thought these would be so fun to make for a bridal shower to serve as a dessert or as a favor! Especially the Martha ones...You could do the brides name and grooms name and they would be adorable!! Anyway...I wanted to feature some fun cupcake places in the city as well! The first picture is from the oh so cute TeaCake Bake Shop in Emeryville! It is such a fun shop you must go! The next photo is from Kara's Cupcakes on Scott Street at Chestnut in the City....Another Fab spot!
So add some fun to your next bridal shower and visit www.Bakerella.blogspot.com for some oh so fun baking ideas you are sure to bookmark her blog!
Happy Baking & Cupcake Eating

Spring Showers*Pretty Flowers
A Savvy 
Bridal Shower

LoveJoys Tea Room in Noe Valley, in the city is the perfect setting for your bridal shower!
How fabulous are tea sandwiches, aromatic teas, comfy sofas, & your closet girlfriends.
LoveJoys is all that and more! I think if you are considering a bridal shower for one of your girlfriends or family members you should reserve the tea room for that oh so fun afternoon. 
So Sit back with your girlfriends and enjoy the tradition of tea in a quirky, eclectic, playful setting....
Would make for a fun Birthday Party or afternoon with the girls....
