Here is a shop shot of some moss covered succulent trees we made for a client’s home last year. They are one of my favorite things we did for Christmas!

Tell your groomsmen how many programs they have to hand out – is it one per person or one per couple?

An incredible couple and a famous hotel pair for the “best of” in our wedding files!

If the groomsmen are wearing traditional bow ties, include a handout with a “how to”.

Christmas Fun

These are some pics of the Christmas decorating we did for a client’s home. The nutcracker cookies were done by Casue in New York and were really beautifully done. They accented the icy theme of the dining room along with the crystal rock candy topiaries in the windows. The rest of the home was done in a rustic woodland theme and the mantle is an example how we carried that throughout the home!

Be sure the groomsmen have spit shined shoes.

Uncommon Events Pop Up Shop

Ok fans, here is the scoop on the Pop Up shop we have at 2441 Aspen Street, Fairmount Neighborhood in Philadelphia. I was looking for a way to showcase our incredible creativity when it comes to our clients hotel gifts and the gifts we create for our friends and colleagues. I found this adorable, perfect space when sealing the deal for my new row home right up the street!

Here is the concept: We will be open for 10 days a month starting in February 2014. Each month will be themed and the inventory of gifts will reflect that theme. The gifts will be handmade as well as some bespoke floral designs and things we LOVE with amazing design elements.

This is an extension of our usual business of Wedding Planning, Design and Decor. Our design warehouse in Norristown still rocks on a daily basis and is where we get to the dirty of “creation”!

This Pop Up Shop allows brides who do not have us on their team as planners and designers, to take advantage of incredible gifts for their out of town guests and entire bridal party (yup, we do “man” gifts too).

I will post the opening dates and themes soon.

We are very excited to be a part of the Fairmount Neighborhood. Everyone has been so welcoming and lovely. I made the right choice on my big move into the city!

Happy Holidays!
