Today Show Bling!

Jes appeared as a guest on the Today Show Sunday to talk about how to create a fun and fabulous table for entertaining. She shared her ideas with the viewers on creating a table with bling, that is also meaningful and memorable to your guests! Jes covered her table with a beautiful copper (the HOTTEST color in 2010!) tone cloth then added round mirror place-mats with amber plates, silverware, and glassware. She chose stem-less glassware for water and wine the keep the possibility of spillage down! Centerpieces were arranged with bold festive flowers: Gloriosa Lily and Golden Treasure Orchids. The flowers definitely brought the WOW factor and a pop of color to the table. The table was garnished by napkins tied with peacock ribbons, mirrored place cards, amber and gold candle votives, moss balls, glass balls, and amber diamond sea glass.

Behind the Scenes!
Jes and the jesGORDON/properFUN team were invited to NBC Studios to prep the set for Jes' segment on Saturday. It was an exciting yet a very different experience. Jes wasn't allowed to carry or touch any of her props herself. She had to let the Today Show staff unwrap EVERYTHING (even her clippers) and place EVERYTHING on the table. She had to verbally show the guys where and how the flower centerpieces and other decorations were to be placed. HA! Check out some photos from Saturday!

Visitors got to meet Jes!

Can You Hear Me Now?

Music is such a vital aspect to every party and event. However, especially at a house party it is hard to strike a balance between the volume being loud enough for everyone to hear and blowing people out of the room. One of the best ways to solve this it with Satellite Speakers. You can find great affordable indoor/outdoor options at places like Target and Best Buy. The speakers above are designed to give you top notch sound while withstanding the elements outdoors, and at only $32.98 they are a great deal. Place a couple in every area of the party and no one will feel left out of the vibe!

Tis the Season for Giving...and Getting! is featuring Jes' wonderful holiday gift tips on their blog today. Often one of the things that makes Christmas so stressful is picking out the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Check out these great ideas from Jes before you spend hours wandering around a mall!
