Happy Halloween From M&J Trimming
Happy Halloween From M&J Trimming
Using silk ribbons, it’s so easy to match the flower girl’s dress to the flower basket. Rhinestone buttons can be added to give it that extra elegant finish. This is a great idea for brides who are looking for something easy yet still beautiful for her flower girl. You can choose silk ribbon colors that match with your wedding theme. All you have to do is tie the bow onto the dress and stitch the ribbon onto the wedding basket. Then finish it off with a glistening Swarovski rhinestone button and you’re all finish.

M&J Trimming’s was recently featured on NBC’s Martha Stewart Show on October 9th. Kristin along with Martha embellished some hoodie’s and created some fun crafty costumes. Besides having to be careful about the candies on Halloween, parents also have to worry about the health of their children. Especially since Halloween night is usually a little chilly. Which means kids can’t stay out trick or treatin’ for long. However, Kristin and Martha came up with some really fun ideas for creating a DIY costume while keeping warm simply by embellishing hoodies with items from M&J Trimming. You can find the template and more information on how you and your children can create your own fun costumes at MarthaStewart.com.
Cake jewelry is a popular item that Brides call me for daily. Although M&J Trimming don’t sell premade cake jewelry, you can easily use M&J products to create your own custom look. When I was browsing through M&J for ideas for the blog, I noticed these gorgeous crystal spray and pearl sprays. I was inspired immediately!
Take the sprays and arrange them so the stems are all lined up and the sprays create nice large flower look. Tape the top, middle, and bottom to secure for wiring. Take a piece of beading wire and wrap it (starting at the top) around the stems until you reach the bottom, clip the excess wire. You can then simply place the new large stem directly into the cake.
Another way to do it is to take one stem, surround it with 4 stems positioned slightly lower (by 1″), position the remaining 7 stems around those 4 another inch lower. Tape and wrap the same way as before. This will create a tiered firework effect with the sprays.
If you want a fuller look, try 2 or even 3 packs of sprays. You can also mix the rhinestone sprays with the pearl sprays for a multi-textured look. Rhinestone buttons can be added to the tiers with ribbon to carry the cake topper look to the rest of the cake.
This week I threw together a cute little basket for handing out Halloween candy. The supplies are simple and it only takes a few minutes to make.
The hottest trend it seems lately is that brides are heading towards shades of gray for the new accent color. They are incorporating into everything ranging from the invites to the wedding dress itself! I decided to create a simple pair of shoe clips done in this hot new shade to show how versatile it can be.
Shoe clips were at their most popular during the Victorian era, they were used to dress up your shoes, but could also be clipped to hats, scarves, and bags. I’m a huge fan of shoe clips, I usually make my own using mostly buttons and ribbons, but I do have a few vintage pairs too. Why not try to make a pair today, you’ll quickly see how addictive it is to own a ‘new’ pair of shoes!
Fall has officially arrived. I’m sure some parts of the country are still a bit warm, but I can definitely feel the chilly breeze in New York. Which reminds me that we have one month before Halloween. This is a great time to introduce everyone to the “Body Glue”.
A lot of M&J Trimming customers have been requesting for body glue. So by demand, M&J decided to to stock up on the new merchandise to satisfy customers. It literally is body glue and it’s about the same size as a mascara tube. All you have to do is dab a tiny drop onto the area you’d like and then add rhinestones, loose sequins or half pearls. This is also great for stage make-up.
