Here is some information about henna:

Henna Art (Mehndi) is a safe, natural way to beautify your skin and is temporary. It will last 1-3 weeks normally with proper post care. When Jagua is used, the blueish tattoo stain ,it is lasting the longest on some skin areas up to 3 weeks.. Originally native to India, Pakistan, Morocco, and other parts of northern Africa, the henna tattoo art has grown most recently in America and is being used as a body adornment, a great alternative to permanent ink tattoos and is a popular party entertainment for all ages .It's safe for skin being its only natural ingredients in the paste and can be used on all areas of the body including on children and pregnant bellies.

Kathleen Wright is the henna artist that we work with and she is truly talented. She also offers exotic jewelry trunk shows and lots of other types of entertainment.

Ruffle Cake

A huge trend we are seeing a lot of this year is......the ruffle cake! It is a beautiful and modern design and works well with so many different styles from rustic to elegant. Here are some photos of ruffle cakes we have done this year. As ruffles, frills and extensive layers splashed across the runway from designers, it was inevitable that this epitome of femininity would continue its reign in wedding style.

For a seriously elegant look, skip the bold patterns and add-ons in favor of subtle embellishments with allover sugar ruffles. The look is light and airy and needs very little added detail. Finish it off with fresh flowers in between each tier or a few sugar flowers on top.
