The Perfect Housewarming Gift at The Dandelion Patch!

Trapp Candles are back by popular demand!

These wonderfully scented candles come in many varieties and have NEW and IMPROVED packaging. So far, our staff favs are : Orange Vanilla, Sexy Cinnamon, and Mediterranean Fig. Personally, I enjoy the fresh, clean scent of Water (yes, it does smell good!).

This past holiday season we could not keep the Reed Diffusers in our stores, they kept flying off the shelves! So come in and try a few... for you, or a friend. These "tiny houses" are the perfect housewarming gift. Get it? (houses, candle warms...) Enjoy!

Tea With Anna Post!

You're Cordially Invited to a Very Special Tea
with Wedding Etiquette Expert Anna Post!



Anna Post talks to brides, members of the bridal party and family members about how to handle difficult moments during wedding planning, and how to incorporate classic points of etiquette for a new generation. From invitation wording to thank-you note tips, Anna offers insights that will keep brides sane and their mothers nodding in approval. And, whether it's the future mother-in-law who insists on hosting a rehearsal dinner that's more formal than the wedding reception, a maid of honor who won't return the bride's calls, or perhaps a bride with a wee bit of a control problem, Anna offers helpful advice about how to handle emotional interactions with those around you leading up to the big day. Relationship landmines abound on the way to the altar, and Anna's words of wisdom will arm brides with the tools they need to smooth the way.

Wedding Wire Award

2009 Bride's Choice Awards presented by WeddingWire | Wedding Cakes, Wedding Venues, Wedding Photographers & More

WeddingWire, the nation’s leading wedding technology company, just announced that The Dandelion Patch has won the 2009 Bride’s Choice Awards™!

In its inaugural year, the Bride’s Choice Awards recognizes and honors vendors from the WeddingWire Network that demonstrate excellent quality of service, responsiveness, professionalism, value of cost and flexibility. This year’s recipients represent the top three percent of WeddingWire’s vendor community, which includes over 100,000 wedding vendors from across the US. That means The Dandelion Patch is one of the very best in invitations.
Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the company, the Bride’s Choice Awards are determined exclusively by recent newlyweds through surveys and reviews.

“We are excited to launch this annual award program to honor high-performing vendors based solely on the experiences of our WeddingWire community,” according to Timothy Chi, WeddingWire’s Chief Executive Officer. “This year’s recipients have set the bar high, exhibiting excellent service and expertise in the wedding industry.”

The Dandelion Patch would like to thank our past clients for speaking on our behalf and helping us win the 2009 Bride’s Choice Award!
