Betsey Johnson Window Dressing at Macys

On 3.13.13 we had the privilege of watching Betsey Johnson merchandise her Macy’s window display. Betsey managed to turn the sidewalk into a mini party, as she showed off her new collection.  We were honored that Betsey used headpieces from the M&J Bridal Salon. She even placed a sign in the window that we had brought for her. Upon seeing the sign she jumped up and asked for someone to get the sign from us so she could use it in her display. We couldn’t have been happier!

M&J Bridal Salon Soiree

By Blerona

Last week we had our M&J Bridal Salon Press Event inside of M&J Trimming and it was such a blast. With guests from the The Knot, Bridal Guide Magazine, Inside Weddings and some of our favorite bloggers we knew we would have to put in a lot of work to make the night perfect. We worked with James Abel Events to completely transform the back of the store and we were very lucky and thankful to have Alpine Creative Group, Sugar Flower Cake Shop, Izze Sparkling Juice, Jenny Yoo Collections, Johnny Gonzalez, Maison Prive and Fantasia Studios sponsor the event. Read more about the event here!

One part of the event that we were all very excited about was the Photo Booth! We got a custom made backdrop, used M&J Bridal Salon headpieces and hats and of course made some of our own props with M&J Trimming.

One Wishing Tree, Four Ways!

By Blerona

We’ve got Spring Fever, Monday was such a beautiful day the weather finally warmed up and we couldn’t help but make some fun DIY’s. Since alot of parties are planned in Spring and Summer Season, we decided to create a Wishing tree in four different ways by embellishing them occording to the themes. What is a wishing tree you ask? Well what we did was put some branches in a clear vase with rocks on the bottom to hold them still. Then cut out beautiful decorative paper and leave a marker there for guests to write special messages or wishes to the person the party is being held for. Then they take there message and hang it up on the tree.
