New Year's Eve: Last Minute Invite!

It's never too late to pull together a chic last minute soiree! Thanks to Paperless Post, the chic-er alternative to Evite, you can invite your most fun fellows over with panache. The site has an assortment of high-end customizable invitations with an innovative tool that lets you personalize your message, and send to each of your guests in a virtually calligraphed envelope. Of course, RSVP tracking and guest list management are also included. Users log on for free, then send paperless posts to their guests with "stamps" that can be purchased. And, lucky for you, each first-time user gets 25 complimentary stamps. So, what are you waiting for? At the time I am writing this, 2010 is 2 days, 67 hours, and 4056 minutes away.

Let it Scrabble! Let it Scrabble! Let it Scrabble!


Whether you're snowed in or a blizzard hit your holiday budget, DIY Holiday is so 2009. I absolutely plotzed when I saw this awesome idea for holiday decor....SCRABBLE. Boy, why didn't I think of that?! Can you imagine the possibilities this classic word tile game offers up for events....from proposals ("marry me?") to weddings (Mr. & Mrs. Smith) to dinner party placesettings (each guest's name cleverly spelt out at their place-setting), it's like an event planner's EUREKA!

What's your DIY holiday idea? Have one--post it here!

Van & Eric: The Wedding (US Weekly/ Dream Wedding)

Here is the long-awaited wedding video for US Weekly/ Dream Wedding Winners Van & Eric. It was an unbelievable pleasure to work with this lovely couple and an amazing list of all-star vendors!

Monachetti, nice work! My favorite edit moments: the high five at the altar, the DC monument montage (WOW!), the rocking dance moves. Enjoy....

Reality's Pretty Darn Awesome for Lisa Loeb

Sweet news!!!

Two of my favorite clients, Lisa Loeb and her hubby Roey Hershkovitz, (who wed with help from yours truly in January) announced exclusively to PEOPLE the arrival of their adorable daughter, Lyla Rose Loeb Hershkovitz. Baby girl arrived Sunday morning at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

In between night feedings and nappy changes, the new mama will also be busy helping underprivileged children through her non-profit, the
Camp Lisa Foundation, which gives at-risk kids the chance to go to summer camp.

In honor of Lyla bursting onto the scene. here's a clip of my favorite Lisa Loeb children's song that I played for my son, Wyatt (long before meeting Lisa) and now, for my newborn baby girl, Meredith!

For a look back at their winter wonderland nuptials, click here. (Notice both of us boasting our baby bumps on The Knot LIVE).
