Help us Pick the Next Wedding Cake Topper

What do you think happens on February the 14th the most…? Now get your minds out of the gutter and really think. Engagements! It is THE most popular day to get engaged. I love seeing all the jewelry store ads that are slathering the TV the weeks before. As if a man doesn’t know where to get a ring.

For those of us who are married, I bet it doesn’t even come up on our radar anymore. But wedding season is almost upon us, some would say we’re already in it but I see a tsunami coming.

It is really romantic to think there is a whole season for this part of life still. So everyone needs to think back to those lovely days of dating and the pet names you use to call each other. Did you call each other sweet animal names, funny silly names, or super sweet names you go yuck to now? Even if you’re not married join in the fun.

We at Middleburg want to come up with some more wonderful cake toppers, but with so many ideas and so little time, we need your help to narrow it down.

Just to kick the ball off, I have been thinking about a cute rabbit couple, paws up, facing each other touching noses. Two little blue birds sitting in a tree. A pair of frogs sitting on a lilly pad. But I have said to much…your turn.

Here’s where you come in:
We need you to tell us what you think most describes the wedding cake topper you would like (or would have liked) via comment here, include your name please and an e-mail address.

We will then take the most popular suggestions, put them in a hat and pick out the winning suggestion on Thursday Feb 18 at Noon, ETS. And as our Thank You for all your hard work the winning suggestion will receive a $35 gift certificate to our Middleburg Etsy Shop. Its really IMPORTANT that you leave me an email address in the comment section as well, otherwise we won’t have any way of contacting you.

You may also DM or Tweet me an idea, for additional chances to WIN ! @MiddleburgFAS

It’s Good to be Green…even at your wedding

Sorta didn’t do a special posting on Earth Day because it’s like going to church because it’s Easter. But I did press paper (recycled) and even dumped my mop bucket water outside over a new little Ginkgo tree we just planted (using a biodegradable soap).

But today I got a total surprise and was featured on Vintage Indie’s Wedding Blog, Indie Wedding Guide. Just for being green. As I’ve noted before I started my company green even before it was all the ‘buzz,’ and I try all the time to improve or lessen our ‘foot print.’

Here is a little bit about our papier mache.
Middleburg is Green…it’s not just a saying, it’s truly the way we started. All of our papier mache pieces are made from 100% recycled ground newspaper. We just add water and a biodegradable binder. Our paints and glues are all made in the USA (we have checked)–not just beautiful, but smart too.

Also let me share one of my most recent projects, I am the lead on the Etsy Wedding Team. I’m such a sucker for a good wedding. And this is a group of very talented, quality shops on Etsy that create things for a beautiful hand-made wedding. So many do customizable items for the bride and the whole wedding I encourage you to check them out. Here is the ‘our blog’ link or just search on Etsy by inserting “Etsy Wedding Team” in the search window and all my team mates will pop up!
