2013 Trend Forecast

Congratulations to those of you who are newly engaged! I know that you must be knee-deep in pinning away on Pinterest, surfing those trusted wedding sites, bridal magazines, and watching any wedding reality television show you can find! In addition to some of the 2013 wedding trends (that I plan to try to cover this week), I am going to say that I think THIS will and could be hot for a wedding! So what is IT?

It's a reclaimed shipping container! These aren't just for shipping goods or for Doomsday Preppers anymore!  If food trucks are a hot trend, imagine a refurbished shipping container that could showcase a "live action" station of cherries jubilee and cigar rolling. It could house your candy buffet, dessert station or photo memorabilia. I'm just obsessed with the options this could provide!!

What are your thoughts? Do you foresee this as potential trend? It's hot in San Francisco right now as this is Del Popolo's pizzeria on wheels!

Trends: Stenciled Burlap

Burlap has been around forever, but is so versatile and showing up everywhere! Don't believe me-search it on Pinterest! You can stencil burlap banners, signs, guest favors, table numbers, menus, invitations-anything! Those of you who are currently planning a "vintage", "rustic", "chic" or whatever term you like who are wanting to use burlap in your weddings know how HOT it is right now! I love the look and versatility of burlap! I've been stenciling burlap for a bit now and wanted to share with you some ideas:

Placemats for the Bride and Groom. Can be customized in any color!
