Oneida/Anchor Hocking Warehouse Sale!

Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

Attention Columbus-ites: If you need platters for your holiday party or jars for the candy bar at your wedding, head over to Sawmill Rd in Dublin and visit the Oneida/Anchor Hocking Warehouse Sale!

When I was there today, they had tons of baking dishes, platters, flatware, pitchers, candy jars, serving ware, storage bowls with lids, dinner plates, lots of different styles of glassware including wine, martini and drinking glasses, vases and candle holders galore, punch bowls, trifle bowls, some really cute red and white mixing bowls and lots more!  The prices are good – I bought 3 large square glass platters, a glass pumpkin and a pitcher for under $20.

The sale is running now through December 15 at a storefront in the Goodwill Plaza which is at 6665 Sawmill Rd, Dublin, OH. The posted hours are 11 am to 7 pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 1 to 5 pm on Sundays only but I was there today so they are open other days as well – no idea the rhyme or reason to that so if you are driving from across town, you might stick to the weekends.

Hope you find something great!

Friday Favorites: 11.08.13

Friday, November 8th, 2013

{We’re back!!!!  We are wrapping up the event season – just one last wedding for New Year’s Eve along with some holiday parties for both corporate and private clients – and I am so excited to have some more time for things like blogging including our Friday Favorites!  Lots of wedding pictures are rolling in and we’ll be sharing them soon – stay tuned and have a wonderful weekend!}


I don’t know about where you are but the temperature is dropping here in Columbus!  My mind is turning to staying warm and planning cozy winter weddings!  What screams winter wedding to you?

Favorite Gown: I think this dress pretty much shatters the notion that long sleeves means covered up and not sexy, wouldn’t you say?  This traffic stopping number is from Israeli designer Inbal Dror’s 2012 Rome Collection.


Favorite Bouquet:  I LOVE the shades of white, silver and dusty green from the silver brunia berries, juniper sprigs, pine boughs, seeded eucalyptus, and dusty miller.  They play so well off the spray roses and anemones in particular!


Favorite Bout: This bout is a perfect compliment for our wintery bouquet with the brunia berries backed by a dusty miller leaf.

Favorite Cake: I did say cozy, right?  What’s more cozy than a cable knit sweater?


Favorite Decor: You don’t have to scatter snowflakes or pinecones to make your wedding reception feel wintery – tons of candles and clean, cool toned lighting lend a sophisticated, upscale air (chill?) to any room.


Favorite Extra: Cranberry Margarita – I will take 2 (or possibly 3)!


Hope you have a warm and cozy weekend!  On a personal note, happy Flatiron Anniversary to my husband – 13 years ago, we had our first date at the Flatiron in Columbus.  I am so very glad we both showed up that night!
