It’s one of our favorite times of the year: Wedding Season! Love is in the air, but so is stress … but we are here to help.
We know that planning a wedding can be a lot of work, especially when it comes to picking out gifts for your wedding party. It can be stressful searching for the perfect gift – a gift that is not only unique and special enough for your closest friends and family, but a gift that also has a personal touch that can truly express how thankful you are that they are taking part in the most important day of your life.
But have no fear - A Personal Touch is here with our new “Wedding Party Gift Guide” blog series which will feature posts that focus on one-of-a-kind gifts ideas from our Wedding & Anniversary Store that are perfect for each of the members in your bridal party.
Hunting for Easter Eggs takes a lot of energy so we were thrilled to see the recipe for “Bunny Bait” from Brown Paper Packages on Pinterest. (Check out our Pinterest Easter board here). This snack mix is perfect to hand out to the kids to munch on while they’re searching for their eggs and it will help hold them over until brunch, especially if they’re used to eating earlier in the day. You can also use the individual snack bags as place settings for the adults at your party or just fill a large bowl for everyone to share.
The “Bunny Bait” recipe consists of Reese’s Pieces Easter Eggs, pretzels, mini marshmallows and honey roasted peanuts, but you can alter the recipe to include any of your other favorite snacks.
We loved reading through all the interesting facts our fans submitted about their ancestors, but there was one entry that stuck out from the rest.
We’d like to congratulate Alice Link for winning the “Tales From My Family Tree” contest with this amazing family fact she discovered about her grandparents.
If you’re not familiar with the newest social media site, it is described on their site as:
“A virtual pinboard. Pinterest allows you to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. You can browse pinboards created by other people to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and share their favorite recipes.”
We are excited to see that March 10th, 2012 is National Genealogy Day!
Researching your genealogy can be a rewarding and interesting experience–you may even discover something surprising about your relatives! We believe it’s important to research your family tree and preserve your history by sharing what you’ve learned about your relatives with your family and the entire world.
With the “Tales from My Family Tree” Contest, you’ll be able to do just that.
