A Note From Colin Cowie

Everywhere I look, holiday spirit is in full swing. Wreaths, lights and snowmen adorn homes across the country as boxes wrapped in shimmering paper are tucked into closets and under beds, away from prying eyes. But my favorite part of the holidays is the sense of cheer and kindness that abounds. As we devote our time to giving to and pleasing those we love, we must keep in mind those less fortunate who will benefit greatly from our care and attention.
In the spirit of the holidays and giving, here are two of my favorite wedding-related good causes benefiting brides and grooms who need our help, both this season and year-round.
Brides Against Breast Cancer
So many couples around the world are affected by breast cancer, whether it is a family member or a friend of a friend battling the disease. Why not turn a celebration of your love into an opportunity to help the more than 200,000 women diagnosed with breast cancer each year?
 Donate your gown to Brides Against Breast Cancer, who will sell your gown at one of their shows held nation-wide to benefit programs for cancer patients and their families

  Please join Remarkable Rhinestone  February 3rd 2013 Dress Sale  at the
  Manhattan Penthouse 
  80 5th Avenue New York City 1:00 to 7:00

The History Of The Napkin Ring

The napkin ring, occasionally called a serviette ring, was originally used to identify the napkin of a household between weekly wash days.
 The standard napkin ring is a simple ring made from skewers.
 The figural napkin ring is an American specialty in which the simple napkin ring is part of a small figure or sculpture that may take any shape and show any motif.
 Napkin rings appear as single items with the name or initials of the owner, notably given as christening presents, or pairs often given as gifts at weddings and silver weddings.
 In the English speaking countries, numbered sets of 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 napkin rings are found.
 Napkin rings are an invention of the European bourgeoisie, first appearing in France about 1800 and soon spreading to all countries in the western world.
 Most 19th century napkin rings were made of silver or silver plate, but others were made in bone, wood, pearl embroidery, porcelain, glass, and rhinestones.   In the 20th century bakelite was introduced.
