Burlap & Lace

6 ways to bring these beautiful textures into your wedding

Who would have ever thought these two would make such a beautiful couple (no pun intended). Maybe opposites really do attract! The rough texture of burlap and the soft feminine touch of lace can truly transform your special day into a classic rustic, yet chic, wedding. You can accent your wedding with these small details to capture the rustic outdoors in any venue…preferably La Jolla Cove Suites.

 1. Wedding Invitations

Use actual burlap & lace on your Invitations to play with your guests’ senses. Or for a more casual, less expensive approach there is always photo printed invitations.

 2. Centerpieces Simplicity at its best… masons jars, burlap & lace strips glued on, and your flower arrangement placed inside.

 3. Ceremony Aisle Accents Talk about an inexpensive and adorable way to decorate your ceremony aisle.  As you walk down to say your “I do’s” to the person of your dreams, you will be able to catch a glimpse of these beautiful bows and you will most certainly appreciate the simplicity it brings to your day.

4. Table Runners If you don’t plan on having a communal style reception dinner, no worries, this table runner can be used to make the head table for you and your future partner one that stands out.

5. Cake Décor  Piece of cake.

6. Your Bridal Bouquet  The flower arrangement would be up to you, but with a little piece of burlap and a lace accent on top, it will definitely look rustic chic against your wedding dress as you walk down the aisle to the next step in your life.

Congratulations Brittany and Mike!

This month La Jolla Cove Suites had the honor of hosting Brittany and Mike’s wedding reception. They chose ivory linens and made wooden boxes for their centerpieces. The floral arrangements, provided by White Lotus Productions, beautifully accented the table tops. We especially loved the centerpiece for Brittany and Mike’s head table!

Brittany handmade napkin rings for all of the guests, and each one was unique.  The napkin rings tied into the vintage theme of the reception, which could also be seen in the antique bird cage that was used for cards.

Introducing La Jolla Cove Suites’ New HD Webcam

We are really excited to share our new toy with the world! We recently installed an HD webcam that shows you exactly what our views are like, in real time. Follow this link http://www.lajollacove.com/index.php?page=webcam and see why we love this new camera so much. By clicking the “Control Now” button you can move the camera to different locations along the shoreline. You can also tilt the camera up and down, and zoom in or out. Check out the “Select Preset” option to direct the camera to some of our favorite views. You can also use the “Snapshot” function to take a still image of the view and share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

Here are some of the screenshots we have taken:
