PlaceTile's New Erasable Bottle Cork Toppers are a Show Stopper
Not too long ago, we had posted about a company called PlaceTile and their erasable ceramic menu cards and placecards. Well, they've done it again!
They just sent us a Press
Release on their new product, "Erasable Ceramic Bottle Stoppers." These useful little corks with beautiful ceramic tops can be used to re-seal your bottles of wine or oil. Their
special feature is that they can be personalized or labeled for any social occasion; a great item for wedding
favors, or quinceañera keepsakes. They are also handy at identifying your different selections of wines, and
your specialty or imported olive oils and dressings, at a formal dinner party when you celebrate at home.
What we like most, is the fact that we can use them over and over, since they are totally erasable.
These bottle stoppers retail for $13 for a set of three.

Happy Wine Corking!
Lauren Karnitz Recycled Wedding Flower Collection
The Event Lady is always looking for ways to offer recyclable and "Green" products that can be incorporated into the planning of
bride's wedding reception, and a quinceañera's celebration. Here in Florida, "we are especially
particular about preserving the natural surroundings around us."
Lauren Karnitz, has presented us with a collection that follows this line of thinking. Recycled flowers for your wedding cake, and oh! so much more! This international artist has released a truly unique and different collection of
pretty and colorful recycled flowers. Originally designed as single stems or arrangements, the flowers have been
adopted by brides and quince girls across the country as cake toppers, cake décor, guest gifts or favors, and
even corsages and boutonnieres.
Karnitz creates these floral designs using household recyclables such as milk jugs,
candy wrappers, shampoo bottles, and straws. Each flower is crafted into stunning varieties such as roses,
magnolias, peonies, sunflowers, lilies and hybrids, and as she states, "have a spirit all their own.”
The cake picture below offers a glimpse of her work.

Jackie Arredondo and her Love Songs
Here is a love song to inspire Floridian brides and grooms, it is titled "The Woman You Wanna Be", via this link you can take a peek on itunes. This song is performed by a Miami raised young lady with big dreams and a passion
for music, her name is Jackie Arredondo. We loved the words when we heard it, and since we are always looking
for wedding songs, thought it would be great to share.
Jackie has many other CDs in her collection,
so please make sure you check them out. Another pretty Love balad is "Un Amor Tan Grande"
translated in English (A Love so Big.) We have always believed that supporting local talent and businesses is up
to us! So today we blog about this bi-lingual treasure, who can perform and delight you in both languages, English
FYI - A bit of her Bio:
Jackie Arredondo was raised in Florida
and from a very young age, she started singing with different local bands. As a student of Music at Miami University,
her teachers discovered her talent to teach others. This is when Jackie’s career took a turn, and her dreams of becoming
a recording artist were placed on hold to pursue a new career as a vocal coach. However, Jackie never stopped dreaming
about Nashville, the Grand Ol Opry and Country music, the music that has been her passion since the age of 5. The
music of Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Dolly Parton, Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban has been
an integral part of her life, and she counts their CDs among her most valuable possessions.
after persistency, consistency and much hard work, she is blessed to have her own treasured collection of music, her own songs
to share all over the world via itunes or on her websites below.
