#TipfulTuesday: Saying Thank You!

I just love the saying: “Gratitude is the most exquisite form of courtesy”. Even the sentence is pretty.

Here’s a quick tip: SEND.A.THANK.YOU.NOTE. Every once in a while – bring out your pretty stationary and put that pretty pen to work. It takes only a few moments and creates a lasting impression.

Did someone go above and beyond and you would like to say a little more than a hand written note? Here are some of our favorite “Sussies” (this means a little something, brought to you by our great friends a Creme de la Creme Cake Company):

  1. Pretty Perfect Packages – adorable customizable thank you packages. Bonus points: you’re shopping local!
  2. Yellibelly Chocolate – because who doesn’t like chocolate?!
  3. Dandelion Cheesecakes – they deliver their tinies (bite-size) or large cheesecakes all over Dallas Fort-Worth plus they ship nationwide!
  4. Tiff’s Treats – coooookkkkkkiiiieeeees. Warm, warm cookies (and milk).
  5. Customizable stationary – so eventually they can thank you back.
  6. Favorite Food – do you know they have a favorite food or are from a certain area? If so, do a little bit of research and send them something from there.

We hope these ideas have given you a little inspiration for gratitude. Follow us on Facebook @SarabethEvents or Instagram @SarabethEvents.

#TipfulTuesday: All About The Drinks!

Tired of the same old bar setup at weddings? We have found some fabulous ways to make you bar a centerpiece rather then a table backed into the corner. Check out a few of your favorites:

Drink Setup on Dresser

Love this drink station setup, you could even get some different sized vintage pieces and have a bartender behind to serve the alcohol.

Bar setup on Wine Barrels

How fun is this? Use wine barrels as your bar base, perfect for the true wine enthusiast.

Bookshelves as bar back

Don’t forget about the bar back, use an old bookcase for your bar back. Can be used for glass storage or even add in personal pictures.

#TipfulTuesday: Wedding Planning Break Date Night Ideas!

Date Night

Wedding planning can be stressful on your relationship; it is important to put things aside and take time for just the two of you. That being said we know a four star restaurant or long weekend vacation is out of the picture with all your wedding expenses. Here are a few of our favorite date nights that wont break the budget.

Remember no wedding talk on these dates!

  1. Cook at meal together; use some of those new kitchen gadgets you registered for.
  2. Go on a bicycle ride around a park, if you live in Fort Worth try the bike sharing.
  3. Host game night with a few of your friends, everyone can bring a dish & their drink of choice.
  4. Go antiquing; you would be surprised at the treasures you might find.
  5. Enjoy an evening in the park listening to music, check out your local parks for their activity schedule.
  6. Pack a picnic and go to the lake, enjoy the sunset together.
  7. Go to a driving range and hit a few golf balls or to a batting cage.
  8. Drive around and look at open houses, you will both find out a lot on what each other wants in a home.
  9. Drive-in movie night; pack a dinner and enjoy a movie from your car.
  10. Get into wedding day shape, go jogging or walking together.
  11. Know your city? Go sightseeing around your own city, then you can tell your wedding guest the history of your city!
  12. Check out an open mic night at a local coffee shop.

We hope this helps you plan your next non wedding talk date night! Please tell us your inexpensive date night ideas. Tweet us @SarabethEvents or follow us on facebook @SarabethEvents.
