  • Photo Shoot A Berry Sweet Summertime Strawberry Bridal Shower Brenda's Wedding Blog affordable wedding ideas for planning elegant weddings
    More info
    I recently decided to put together my own photo shoot that I designed/styled and just last week it was showcased on the Dog n' Bird Artful Wedding blog and Monday on The Wedding Salon blog. Today, I'm super excited to share the shoot with you. I had an amazing photographer, Tiffany Wayne Photography, join me to shoot the tablescape and dessert table along with an amazing florist, Anthology Design Studio, that put together the most beautiful arrangements. I couldn't have imagined a more perfectly matched floral arrangement for this shoot. And, even a few etsy artists joined me with sharing their items for the shoot - Macaron Parlour and Once Upon a Pedestal. And, Once Upon a Pedestal has been so kind to share a 10% discount off any one item in their shop. Simply enter code "WEDDING" in notes to seller at checkout to receive your discount. I mixed in a couple unique and fun ideas in the shoot, and one was serving the strawberry infused lemonade in glass votive candle holders. I had such a blast putting this shoot together which took place right in my parents own backyard, exactly where my bridal shower had taken place 8 years ago. My goal was to create a shoot amidst the many that I know are showcased daily with one that could be approachable by anyone. A sweet and special design that would be budget friendly and make use of items that are either already around or items that can easily be re-used after the event. For this particular shoot I wanted to create a unique and fresh bridal shower theme that would be perfect for the summer and of course strawberries immediately came to mind. Once I had a theme, I decided it would be fun to ask all guests to bring along their favorite strawberry dessert recipe on the card that was enclosed with the invitation. This way, the bride would have a wonderful collection to start her recipe box with. Along with the invitation and recipe cards, I created all the printables including the menu, jam favor label, paper garland, and dessert tags. Many of these printable are now available in my BRAND NEW etsy shop. Another fun idea was serving muffins instead of cupcakes and presenting them on red glass candle holders that I found at Pier1 Imports for 50 cents each. If anybody has any questions about this shoot or the items you see used, please feel free to ask in the comments and I'll reply that way :) In case you missed the feature on Dog n' Bird Artful Wedding, you can see it here along with a Friday Freebie Download of the jam favor labels. And, you can see the feature from The Wedding Salon here.

  • Orange (fruit)
    More info
    The orange (specifically, the sweet orange) is the fruit of the citrus species Citrus × ​sinensis in the family Rutaceae. The fruit of the Citrus sinensis is called sweet orange to distinguish it from that of the Citrus aurantium, the bitter orange. The orange is a hybrid, possibly between pomelo (Citrus maxima) and mandarin (Citrus reticulata), cultivated since ancient times. Probably originated in Southeast Asia, oranges were already cultivated in China as far back as 2500 BC. Between the late 15th century and the beginnings of the 16th century, Italian and Portuguese merchants brought orange trees in the Mediterranean area. The Spanish introduced the sweet orange to the American continent in the mid-1500s. Orange trees are widely grown in tropical and subtropical climates for its sweet fruit, which can be eaten fresh or processed to obtain juice, and for its fragrant peel. They have been the most cultivated tree fruit in the world since 1987, and sweet oranges account for approximately 70% of the citrus production. In 2010, 68.3 million tonnes of oranges were grown worldwide, particularly in Brazil and in the US states of California and Florida. The origin of the term orange is presumably the Sanskrit word for orange tree (नारङगम्, nāraṅga), whose form has changed over time, after passing through numerous intermediate languages. The fruit is known as Chinese apple in several modern languages. Some examples are Dutch sinaasappel (literally, China's apple) and appelsien, or Low German Apfelsine. In English, however, Chinese apple usually refers to the pomegranate.
