what about a large vase or glass plate or bowl propped up. I'm thinking like the decorate murano glass ones you see in home goods

these would also be cool

Everything I read says that you should be netting a minimum of 1200 calories a day meaning that if you have a gym session and you burn 600 calories for that day you should be eating 1800 calories. "normal & healthy" human's basal metabolic rate is usually between 1700-2200 calories a day by cutting or exercising 500 calories a day you should be losing about a pound a week.

At my wedding we did Mini salt water taffy (from Laura's Fudge in Wildwood NJ) bought in bulk and filled Spice Jars from Ikea that were 4 for $3. Slapped a cut tag on the top and they came out under $2 a person. For my friends shower that was travel themed i paired a 100 cal bag of pretzels with a mini bottle of vodka - like airplane snacks. Another option might be cakepops http://www.bakerella.com/red-velvet-cake-balls/

My tip would be find a candy or snack that can be bought in bulk and means something to the bride or couple and package it in a cute inexpensive way.

Spinach, onions, peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, tomatoes, asparagus! I usually saute the veggies in a pan with a little olive oil and garlic and then add eggs and scramble. Sometimes adding cheese like mozzarella or american and breakfast meat. So good! I bet hash browns made from sweet potatoes would be good too.

I have an unofficial iphone app called Ikea Smartlist by Okode they also have a pro version- You can either photograph the barcode or punch in the 8 digit code. You can save it to your list and it will tell you were the item is in teh store and how many they have in stock. I use it all the time.

Almost every one of my family members homes has a gallery wall of sorts with important family photos. My grandmother has a wall going up the stairs with each grand child and their latest formal photo - Christening, Communion, Graduation, Wedding, etc. My parents have a wall of all memorable moments. Dance recital, Grandparents on porch, weddings, candids, group shots, etc.

for us kids it was tradition (and a good way to get toddlers to calm down) by having them name all the family members in the picture, esp challenging if the photos are a decade or two old.
