Call your parents before pressing “post” or “tweet” to announce your engagement.
Your close friends and family will want to hear it straight from you first.
A Facebook status or tweet might be the most efficient way to get the news out, but it’s not the most personal. You know which friends and family members would appreciate to hear the news directly from you. Plus, it’s likely that older family members (like your grandparents) don’t have Facebook or Snapchat accounts and could miss the message altogether.

6 Things You Need To Know When Working with a Wedding Florist

For beautiful Tagaytay country weddings, you might want to consider a professional wedding florist.  Here are 6 things you should  know when you’re working with one for your big day.  Article by Catherine Clark of Offbeat Bride.

Jazz Up Your Jars

Another client asked us, “Hey Sofia’s Cakes, got any ideas on how I can label my jars for my wedding giveaways?”

Sure we do! Jars make for excellent giveaways for not just weddings, but for parties and other special occasions as well. While they aren’t as cost-effective as cupcakes, jars allow you an give out just about anything you want:

  • your favorite candy
  • cake, cheesecake, cookies, brownies, and other sweet treats
  • dry ingredient mixes of all kinds, from soups, to dips, even for cookies, smores, and hot chocolate drinks
  • jams, jellies, and preserves
  • spices
  • scrubs and salts

I’m sure there are a whole lot of other ideas out there, but as you can see, jar giveaways do give you lots of options.

So let’s check out a few cool ideas we’ve found online on getting labels on these jars of yours.
