Oh, Pinterest. Aside from planning hypothetical weddings and our future children’s birthday parties, Pinterest is a wonderful place to seek out recipes and kitchen inspiration. But with millions of pins for everything from pot roast to pumpkin pie, it can be overwhelming to sort out the good from the bad.

Not to worry – we’ve done the legwork for you! Whether your favorite part of Fall is the warm baked goods, or you’d rather pull up a chair to a comforting dinner that simmered in the crock pot all day, here are some of our favorite Pinterest boards to follow for Fall recipes!

Who: Damn Delicious, a recipe developer and blogger with nearly 100 boards. Chung-Ah Rhee posts many of her own recipes on boards like “All Things Savory!” and “Fall Recipes” but also spreads the love on shared boards like “The Best Recipes on Pinterest” and “Best Comfort Food Recipes.”

Who: Kitchen Konfidence, a self-described “food explorer” is a prime example of quality not quantity on Pinterest. While he may not have tens of thousands of pins, the recipes you’ll find on his account are as enticing as the world’s most grand buffet. He’s got an entire board devoted to cooler weather recipes and this one, as well as an entire board devoted to San Diego restaurants if you’re ever in the area.

5 Wedding Trends We Loved In 2014

December 21, 2014 at 7:13 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

2014 is coming to a close, so we wanted to take a look back at some of the trends that were popular this year.

1. Brides wearing a color other than white

Every year, we see more and more brides choosing a dress not in the traditional white. Pinks, Blues, and even Reds have become a fashion trend that brides have embraced. Here are some beautiful options if you are looking for that pop of color!

2. Using a wedding hashtag.

Just five years ago, no one would have known what it meant to have a wedding hashtag. Now, couples are giving their guests the option to share their photos using a specific hashtag. Commonly the bride and groom’s names together, or the new Mr. and Mrs., or even a unique hashtag really special to the couple. Just be careful. Telling guests to upload every single photo they take, means you won’t have control over what people see. There may be some unflattering shots, so as long as you are okay with that, then have them post away! You can even custom order awesome signs like the one below.

3. Destination Weddings.

A lot of couples are opting to take it abroad for their big day, and then come back home for a celebration with family. If you are planning a destination wedding, there are a lot of great sites to help you figure out the best location for you. Many venues also offer photography/videography services included in the wedding package, so you can capture your memories and share them at your reception at home. Here is a great site to get you started:

4. Registering for the honeymoon!

In the past, it was towels, china, and home decor on a lot of registries, and that’s often still the case. But many couples are now registering for their honeymoon! With couples getting married later in life, many of them already own a lot of the quintessential bridal shower gifts, so by registering at a site like www.honeymoonpixie.com it gives guests the opportunity to contribute to the couple’s honeymoon. Showering them with awesome gifts like a drink package on their cruise, a safari adventure on their trip, a couples massage at the beach, or a candlelight dinner in Italy.

5.Theme Weddings.

From Disney, to vintage, to Las Vegas, many couples are incorporating a grand theme into their weddings. With sites like Pinterest giving couples endless ideas for favors, decorations, style, and more, weddings have become amazing events. This is a great way to add personality into your big day and give your guests a unique experience!
