Great Style after the wedding

I received this catalog in the mail and I loved the the items that I found, so I had to find the online store. I thought of a young urban couple who wanted to dress up their new space together. Or maybe a "not so urban" couple who simply likes urban decor. has great items, from dishes to furniture to art. Now I know a young couple starting out may not have all the funds they would like however, I found the prices very reasonable. There were some pricier items , however knowing which pieces to buy can allow you to have a great look for less. I also discovered that they have a gift registry, so put CB2 on your list of places to register. Here are a few of my favorites.

OK, you knew I had to get in my orange, this flashback bedding is bright and cheery for your spring and summer bedroom looks.

I love the Lotus dinner ware. Great for a couples first dinner with mom and dad or another newlywed couple.

This Piazza Sofa looks really cozy, imagine you and your new hubby cuddling with some popcorn and a great movie. Also, if you are living in a "space challenged" apartment, this comfy couch could double as a "guest sofa". Although as comfy as it looks, you might not want to invite too many people over.

Cocktails anyone? I loved these colorful Gem Martini glasses and the Tokyo 4-part server. These would be great for entertaining, the vibrant colors would make a bold statement.

This bongo dining table is a great space saving table for the "space challenged" apartments. It would double as a great buffet table for entertaining. Love multi functional pieces!!!!

There are so many great things, so I suggest you stop by CB2 for more great looks.

Soap delight!!!!

OK , as I mentioned before I love Orange and the various earthy colors that you can associate orange with. Anything with Orange gets my attention, so you could imagine that when I say this beautiful soap it took my breath away.

When I looked at this soap, I saw art. The artistry in this soap is phenomenal and I could only imagine the hard work that went into to making this handmade soap. Intentions handmade soaps are a true piece of art.

I thought that this soap nicely wrapped could be a great presentation to your bridesmaids. Possibly included in a spa basket. Here are a few of the other Intentions creations. Each of them exquisite. I will be placing my order today.

Great and Tasty finds

Although I just got my WII Fit and should be focusing on exercises, I found myself thinking about edible favors. I think my waistline will be OK since I am only sharing information.

I found these great Brownie Pops.

You will find an intricate, eye-catching chocolate coating and a fresh baked delicious brownie or blondie center. I find this unique favor to be both whimsical and elegant.

There are five designs to choose from: bride, groom, filigree, scrolls and vintage. The bride is dressed in white chocolate with candy pearls and a delicate lace bodice made of white nonpareils; the groom is resplendent in a milk chocolate tux and tie with a white chocolate shirt. For a glamorous, old-Hollywood look, pair the filigree and vintage pops. This favors come ready for presentation,these candy wedding favors arrive wrapped in a cellophane bag with an organza bow (packaged either individually or as a pair). You will have a choice of five ribbon styles: white, ivory, white with gold trim, white with silver trim or ivory with gold trim.

Personalized Caramel Corn

Personalized caramel corn favors, sounds delicious.

Within each snack-sized bag, you'll find fresh, irresistible caramel corn in your choice of flavors: original caramel corn, white chocolate cinnamon (lightly coated with white chocolate and dusted with a hint of cinnamon) and sweet and salty triple treat (includes original caramel corn, cheesy cheddar and lightly salted white corn). You can take pick from various customized label designs! or you can submit your own photo for the photo dots and photo floral designs.

Gourmet muffin mix or personalized muffin mix favors

I love to bake and I could imaging taking home this favor and recalling the beautiful wedding details. These personalized muffin mixes make marvelous bridal shower favors, wedding favors or holiday party favors. They come in a glossy white bag of muffin mix comes with a personalized label. Designs available in one of three themes: classic, fall, and winter (labels packaged separately; some assembly required). Just pick a design and add your own special message with up to three lines of text (maximum of 36 characters for the first line, 24 characters for the second line, and 24 characters for the third line).

Adding an optional heart handle wire whisk and bow will make this a really unique favor.

maple syrup favors

How about this great breakfast condiment. Next to a favorite breakfast choice, this warm amber colored syrup will make for a perfect favor. It's leaf-shaped glass containers will be a great accent to a fall wedding. Personalize each bottle with a hang tag or tie personalized ribbon around the neck of the bottle to make it your own.

Be Inspired by tasty and unique favors.

Ode to Orange

Orange is said to increase the craving for food. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. Fun and flamboyant orange radiates warmth and energy. Orange is one of the hottest colors in design. Flowers to drinks, dresses to cakes give your wedding a burst of color. Orange is also my favorite color so here is my "Ode to Orange".

Spring Weddings...New Beginnings

Elegant Touch Events

I love Spring, not only do I get to thaw out from the cold, but I am surrounded with new sounds, smells and colors. Birds chirping, flowers blooming in various shades and sizes, and just an overall feeling of new beginnings.

This would be an especially great time to host your wedding...a time of new beginnings in your life. A Spring wedding gives you a great spring board (pun intended) for design. There are new fashion collections and colors introduced during spring that can inspire your wedding.

Jump into Spring with this beautiful invitation perfect for a beautiful day. This invitation is on a soft white card featuring light yellow flowers that add the elegant touch! This invitation is printed on paper that is Green Seal Certified, made with 100 percent post-consumer fibers and created without the use of chlorine compounds.

Birds are definately a sign of Spring, this invitation features spring blue and green colors with two birds resting on a branch. Wording is printed at the top center of the invitation.

You cannot think of Spring without thinking of flowers. The flowers that you choose for your Spring wedding should reflect the blooms of the season.
