Let Your Special Day Bloom: Spring Wedding Tips

East Meadow Shopping Center

Spring weather is bound to have her ups and downs, but it doesn't mean your wedding day has to succumb to it.

flowers-salad-ceremony-site-petals-weddingIt's almost impossible to predict what kind of weather conditions you will have on your special day, especially between March and the beginning of June. Don't let mother nature intimidate you. Instead, embrace spring and all of its traditions with a few tips in mind.

  • #1 Tip: Wedding Dresses were made for Spring. Unlike the summer months, Spring welcomes the full skirts with tulle and taffeta. Embrace your inner Disney Princess and go for it.
  • #2 Tip: Enhance the traditional white dress with a touch of pastels. Embrace the season and don't forget to use a tasteful amount of the powder blues and baby pinks.
  • #3 Tip: Do not torture your bridesmaids. You may not want them to have the same shawl ready for the brisk day in April, so let your lovely ladies keep warm with an open cardigan.
  • #4 Tip: Keep it Organic. Brighten up your decor with local flowers. You don't have to worry too much about keeping them alive if they're close by.
  • #5 Tip: Favors do not have to cost as much as the gift. Help your friends and family embrace their inner Martha (Stewart) by providing planting seeds for fruits and flowers.

Celebrate President's Weekend with Former First Lady Hillary Clinton's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

East Meadow Shopping Center   (516) 794-9770
In 1992, Family Circle Magazine invited wives of presidential candidates to take part in its first-ever cookie cook off. That year, this recipe beat out-then First Lady Barbara Bush’s oat-less chocolatechip cookies. Hillary Clinton’s recipe also won the bake-off in 1996 when it bested Elizabeth Dole’s pecan-roll cookies. 

Below is the recipe for Hillary Clinton’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Enjoy with a tall glass of milk this President’s Weekend! 

  • Butter for greasing baking sheets
  • 1 ½ cup of Flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup solid vegetable shortening
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Grease baking sheets, then pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt and baking soda. In a large bowl, beat together shortening, granulated and brown sugars, and vanilla until creamy. Add eggs, beating until fluffy. Gradually beat in flour mixture and rolled oats. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop batter by teaspoonful’s onto baking sheets. Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool cookies on baking sheets for 2 minutes. Then, transfer cookies onto wire racks to cool completely.

East Meadow Shopping Center   (516) 794-9770
TONIGHT, Vinny Guadagnino from the hit MTV Show Jersey Shore, will be hosting a special viewing party at AURA LIGHT AND SOUND SUITE

After last week’s crazy episode, highlighting Mike “The Situation” and his bizarre plots (first he thinks Pauly D is mad at him so he wants to “confront the situation,” but between his drunkeness and unzipped fly, he gets side tracked and goes to bed and by the time he wakes up, he’s convinced the person behind all his problems is Snooki- so he plots to bring back "The Unit" and break up Snooki and Jionni!), this week’s episode should be entertaining! 

What better way to watch episode 6 then next to Vinny? This will be his second episode back down at the Shore, after his brief leave to deal with his anxiety.

Tonight, party with your girls at Aura and enjoy a meet & greet, and a chance to win a Valentine’s Day date with Vinny!

Doors open at 9:30 p.m. tonight! VIP tables are strongly suggested. For more information, call Aura at 516-204-5633.
