    Bonfire Night

    It’s that time of the year when the leaves fall off the trees and the nights are getting longer. This means only one thing; Bonfire Night is just around the corner! Here at Neviti we are planning how to make this fireworks night celebrations extra special.

    The Glitz & Glamour collection by Neviti.

    We are excited to go and support our local fireworks celebrations but we know that sometimes the weather doesn’t permit that we can go out and celebrate on the 5th of November. Many of us choose to host our own party and BBQ, with a few sparklers to really feel like a fireworks celebration. Neviti presents to you the Glitz & Glamour collection, ideal for a Guy Fawks Night BBQs. Featuring gold foil and scattered shining stars, this collection is perfect for bringing the party inside or using out under the fireworks display. With all your partyware essentials this collection is sure to bring a smile to your guest’s faces and really bring the spirit of fireworks night to life.

    Featured in the collection is our dazzling gold foil star napkins which really steal the show on your party table. As well as the sparkling party cups perfect for serving up your favourite party drinks. Also, included in the collection is items to decorate your party room such as the ‘Party’ air filled foil balloon bunting. The bunting is easy to assemble and provides a fantastic photo backdrop!

    As for bonfire night, food and treats we are dreaming about the all important BBQ at our local fireworks display. Which can just as easily be achieved at a party at home. The perfect BBQ burger or sausage in a bun and for dessert toasted marshmallows roasted over the bonfire! Perfect served on the Glitz & Glamour ‘Lets Celebrate’ plates, adding that extra sparkle to your November celebrations.

    On to the actual entertainment of the night the bonfire and the Fireworks. Fireworks safety is a must, help to protect little fingers from sparklers by placing the sparklers into a carrot! It gives a much larger hold and lets everyone enjoy the fun of fireworks night. Always remember to extinguish the sparklers in a bucket of water after use.

    Hopefully, you are now full of ideas for what to do this fireworks night! Shop the Glitz & Glamour collection now on amazon prime!

    Winter Wedding Ideas

    Winter Wedding favour ideasIf you’re looking for wedding ideas we’ve some stunning ranges that evoke the special atmosphere of the colder months, a time when the natural world is at its most enchanting and the approaching Christmas festivities make the season feel extra special. It’s a truly magical time of the year and a wonderful period to celebrate your nuptials so if you’re struggling to decide on a date for your big day, we’d encourage you to consider the months later in the year. Certainly summer may provide more venue options – getting married on a beach or having a marquee in the garden isn’t really viable due to the unpredictable weather of the UK! – but if you’re opting for a chic city-based, or a stately venue in the countryside, both options look wonderful against a backdrop of crisp white snow or dappled by pale winter sun.

    A major pro of getting married during the colder months is that the cost is likely to be less, with venue hire and other suppliers generally charging less than they do in the summer. Another benefit is the availability of your guests who are less likely to have booked a holiday during the colder months, plus you may find the availability of venues is better too, meaning there’s more chance of securing a date at your dream location.  Add in the fact that winter weddings perhaps stand out a little more than an event held in the summer (it’s a less busy time for so your special day will be remembered as being a bit different) and there’s a lot to commend holding your celebration at this time of year.

    New Wedding Inspiration

     Vintage Romance Place Card on glassHave you been spending your summer attending weddings and getting inspiration for your own big day? Summer remains the most popular time of the year to get hitched so it’s not unusual – particularly if you’re in your early thirties – to find your calendar filled with wedding dates over the summer period. If your own wedding isn’t until next year, attending all those weddings is a useful way to pick up some tips and get a feel for what’s big on the wedding circuit at the moment. Of course, weddings are hugely personal things and everyone has their own unique style, but seeing the themes and ideas your friends have integrated into their celebrations  is useful for your research.

    The web and all the big bridal magazines are also obvious places to pick up news on the WEBL-671314-Just-My-Type-Straw-Flagslatest wedding trends and you might like to think about visiting a wedding show, a great way to see what’s new in the world of weddings and get expert advice on everything from bridal fashion to food. There are shows and fairs of all sizes that take place across the UK throughout the year – take a look online to see what’s happening where you live. A highlight event is the National Wedding Show where you can buy, try, and book everything for your special day and browse the stalls of over 300 wedding specialists. Even if you don’t commit to anything on the day, attending a show like this is a great way to gather ideas and find out about the hottest trends. Then, create a mood board on Pinterest to keep all those ideas in one place so you have an easy-to-access, visual reference when it comes to finalising the look and feel of your big day.

    WEBL-596461-Vintage-Romance-Guest-BookOne trend that looks set to remain popular is the vintage theme – it seems we just won’t tire of weddings with a nostalgic nod to a bygone era and love the pretty, romantic ambience that a vintage wedding creates. As this style has become more popular couples have been coming up with ever more imaginative ways to add their own unusual touches, from sourcing original antique pieces such as vintage crockery and furniture to customising original 1920s dresses for a real sense of authenticity. We have several ranges that tap into the vintage theme and make a lovely addition to your vintage-themed wedding, including the Just My Type collection, a simple but sophisticated range that combines utilitarian-style brown paper with retro-style lettering. The range looks great mixed in with vintage-style florals, delicate china crockery and jam-jar flower arrangements. It also includes cute little extras that make your theme really stand out, such as candy-stripe paper straws (add to jam-jar glasses of retro-style cocktails or traditional old-fashioned lemonade), pretty bunting and old-school paper sweetie bags, perfect for filling with traditional sweets as a parting gift for your guests.

    If you’re a bit more of an alternative, contemporary couple and are worried you won’t find WEBL-670850-Elegant-Butterfly-PlainTag-Ivory-Goldanything to cater to your pared-back, unfussy style, don’t worry. There are lots of ‘boutique’, specialist suppliers that can help you create your perfect wedding if you’re not the ‘typical’ bride and groom. Start by browsing Rocknrollbride.com (the name says it all!), a website that caters to brides with ‘killer style, crazy love’.  This site shows it is possible to do your wedding your way, no matter how distinct your personal look is. Check out sites like J Crew, Browns Bride and Stone Fox Bride for dresses that are a world away from fussy, ‘meringue’ creations. Even if they’re beyond your budget, you can use these sites to get ideas and then look into finding a local dressmaker who can run up something similar for you.

    WEBL-597956-CB-C&G-cake-boxThe clean, unfussy look is set be popular in 2015, so if this is a style you love you’ll be bang on trend.  We have two ranges – Chick Boutique and Contemporary Heart – that echo this theme and look chic against a simple backdrop of unfussy colours and decorations. Both collections have a distinct look but with their classic design and chic colour palette they help to provide a sophisticated, cohesive look to your room décor. Add some unexpected details – a laser-cut, heart-shaped glass place card, for example, or a scattering of silver and white heart confetti – to ensure your décor is chic rather than boring.

    There’s a wealth of inspiration out there, whichever hot trend or personal touch you want to include in your special day. So have fun browsing the net and be sure to take notes as you do the wedding circuit this season!
