Easter is the time to bring out the riotous colors of a joyous spring. Giving gifts on Easter is the perfect opportunity to express your whimsical side with fancy frills and ribbons. Corky Kouture has just the presentation style you are looking for if you want to capture the exuberance of the holiday.
Pastels like pink, as well as white are always traditional at Easter. It is probably the light, sunny mood of these colors that make them so popular at this time. Maybe it is because so many of us have spent so much time under a bank of dark, dismal clouds. Perhaps it is because we have been cooped up inside our homes. The pastels call to us in at Easter with a message of coming summer and excitement we have only dreamed of all winter long.

People have been celebrating the beauty and honor of mothers since the beginning of time. Ancient Egyptians had a special celebration in honor of the mother figure, the goddess Isis. The ancient Romans celebrated the Phygian goddess Cybele, also called the Great Mother. The Greeks honored mothers by celebrating the mother figure Rhea, known as the mother of Zeus.

The bridal party plays a large part in a wedding, and usually puts in huge effort to make the day turn out right. Bridesmaids may get together to help choose and order the dresses and have fittings. There may be several functions to attend, including a rehearsal and a rehearsal dinner. The maid of honor will usually arrange a bridal shower and a bachelorette’s party. This all requires work, attention to detail and showing up where they are needed on time.
