Newly Launched Bella Bridal and Heirlooms Offers Bridal Accessories, Favors, Jewelry and Personalized Gifts to Enhance Special Occasions


Oyster Bay, NY (PRWEB) July 15, 2014

For brides and others planning a special occasion, a newly launched website, bellabridalandheirlooms.com, can make planning for their special day a bit easier.

The site, launched in late spring 2014, is an on-line bridal boutique offering carefully selected items including bridal jewelry, wedding veils and hair combs, and gifts for bridesmaids and groomsmen. The site also offers personalized favors and gifts for weddings, as well as other special occasions such as anniversaries, graduations, and more.

Grace Caiazzo, owner and consultant, is part of the husband-and-wife team behind Bella Bridal and Heirlooms. Caiazzo opened the business along with her husband, Sal. In doing so, she tapped into her extensive background in fashion, photography, and the wedding business.

“After graduation from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), where I interned with two bridal designers – Amsale in New York and Bruce Oldfield in London – I spent 10 years in design working on the Lauren by Ralph Lauren Collection,” explained Caiazzo. “I also worked for a wedding photographer. Given this experience, I learned a great deal about weddings and have always been a source of creativity and inspiration for family and friends planning their special days.”

“We have carefully hand-selected the highest quality bridal accessories – everything from headpieces, veils, gloves and shawls to ring bearer pillows, flower baskets, guest books and signs, to help ensure that our customers’ big days are memorable and beautiful. Our goal is to provide a stress-free shopping experience from the comfort of the shopper’s own home.”

In celebration of the site’s recent launch, for a limited time, all orders ship free within the continental U.S.

The majority of the headpieces and jewelry available on the site are hand made in the United States, designed to become heirlooms passed down from generation to generation.

“Our warehouses employ many hard-working Americans,” Sal Caiazzo said. “We are proud to be working with them and playing a role in creating a stronger economy.”

Additionally, Grace Caiazzo serves as a bridal consultant to customers who need additional help or advice when choosing items for their special day.

“Customers with questions can call or email – and I am always happy to provide advice and assistance,” notes Caiazzo. “We launched bellabridalandheirlooms.com out of a love for helping people plan and create memorable occasions. I look forward to assisting brides-to-be and anyone else planning a celebration or in need of that perfect, personalized gift to mark a special event.”

Desert Pines Golf Club Sold By Walters Golf and Now Under New Management


Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) August 19, 2014

As of August 1st, 2014, Desert Pines Golf Club of Las Vegas is no longer owned or operated by Walters Golf. In the recent sale, the daily fee golf course was purchased by a privately held company. The new ownership has contracted a Dallas, Texas based golf management company to oversee the facility. The new owners plan to implement a multi-million dollar capital improvement initiative over the next eighteen months.

Desert Pines Golf Club opened in 1996 and is a Dye Designs course. It features thousands of mature pines, undulating fairways, and a design meant to emulate Sandhill style courses from the Carolinas. The course also features a two tiered climate controlled practice facility that is the largest of its kind in the Las Vegas Valley. Desert Pines’ restaurant, Duffer’s, will continue to operate for lunch, catering, weddings and events. Since its opening, the course was owned and operated by Walters Golf until the transfer of ownership was finalized on August 1st, 2014.

“Though we no longer own or manage the course, we are proud of the legacy we’re leaving behind. We could not be happier with the new owners, and we’re confident the new management will continue to elevate the quality of golf in Las Vegas,” said Bill Walters, owner and CEO of Walters Golf.

Walters Golf still owns and operates two premium daily fee championship golf courses in Las Vegas, NV; Bali Hai Golf Club on the Las Vegas Strip, and Royal Links Golf Club, a course that offers a collection of signature holes from British Open rotation courses including Royal Liverpool, St. Andrews and Royal Troon. A Walters Golf representative had this message to convey, “Walters Golf wants to thank all of our valued guests and assure them that any Vegas Preferred benefits they may have will gladly be honored at Royal Links and Bali Hai.”

About Walters Golf

Walters Golf, a division of The Walters Group, is one of the most widely respected golf companies in the country. From its first venture into the private country club market in 1995 to today’s ownership and operation of top-quality, daily fee golf courses, Walters Golf continues their commitment to quality and profitability while offering customers excellent value.

Led by businessman and avid golfer William “Billy” Walters, Walters Golf is known in the national golf industry for developing first-class golf facilities. According to Executive Golfer, Walters is “Nevada’s leading golf entrepreneur” who “recognized the need for visitor and corporate friendly golf facilities and packages, and seized on the opportunity, investing millions in two magnificent properties.”

Desert Pines Golf Club can still be contacted directly at 702-388-4400.

Horsin Around in Santa Barbara: The Regions Rich Equestrian Roots Make for an Unbridled Vacation


Santa Barbara, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2014

Santa Barbara’s rich equestrian roots make for a galloping good time for visitors interested in the wilder side of this palm-studded paradise. Since the first Spanish soldiers rode into Santa Barbara in 1798, a long history of colorful vaqueros, cattle ranching and thoroughbred breeding has evolved into a variety of off-the-beaten path adventures for horse enthusiasts. From a miniature horse farm to a wild horse sanctuary, Arabian training tours and polo lessons, Santa Barbara County offers a slice of western culture for the chaps-and-boots set.

Step back in time to turn-of-the-century stagecoach stops, true grit saloons and carriage museums in authentic settings. Scout the quaint towns of Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, and Los Alamos, spend the weekend in a traditional Conestoga wagon, line dance with real wranglers or just canter off into the sunset on a 10,000-acre working cattle ranch. From Carpinteria to Santa Maria, the options are endless.

Equally alluring are the cast of characters that have resided and thrived in the wild west side of Santa Barbara. Legendary cowboy poet Jake Copass could once be caught off screen rounding up steer or reciting poetry at breakfast rides at the Alisal Guest Ranch’s Old Adobe. John Forsythe was passionate about his thoroughbreds in Santa Ynez. To this day, “Horse Whisperer” Monty Roberts opens his ranch for visits and Join-Ups® between the horse and the hoofless. Even a few horse celebrities resided and trained in the Santa Ynez Valley, including Kentucky Derby winners Flying Ebony (1925), Grindstone (1996) and Charismatic (1999).

UNBRIDLED ATTRACTIONS

Eye candy for kids, Quicksilver Miniature Horse Ranch is one of the largest miniature horse facilities on the West Coast. Hitting the bar at 34 inches, these petite ponies romp, graze and play among the 20-acre state-of-the-art breeding facility. Originally bred in Europe in the 1600s as pets for royalty, the horses were imported to the United States in the 1930s to work the coal mines. Bred to pull ten times their weight, they proved invaluable in maneuvering in the shafts and culling coal. Today, the miniature creatures have come full circle and are bred as pets. An added plus is Quicksilver’s location, set along a verdant wine tasting and apple-picking route in Solvang. Open seven days a week, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Another outback find is the “Return to Freedom” American Wild Horse Sanctuary in Lompoc. This 310-acre living museum is a hands-off habitat for a diverse variety of horses living in their natural herd groups. Visitors can spend an afternoon immersed in the joys of the wild horse experience. The walking tours are packed with insider knowledge. Spend an hour getting acquainted via the Sanctuary Tour ($ 25/adult, $ 10 children), or delve into the three-hour Wild Horse Hike where guests observe the herds in silence far above the din of the city ($ 75/adult, $ 20 youth).

The “Man Who Listens to Horses” has a mount in nearby Solvang – Flag is Up Farms. Here, legendary author and trainer Monty Roberts’ Join-Up® techniques are demonstrated and visitors can roam the facilities; just sign in and grab a self-guided tour map. The 154-acre breeding and training facility houses a race track, lush manicured lawns and pastures, stables, barns, scheduled clinics/classes and a 24,000 sq. ft. covered arena. The Roberts’ home, twice featured in Town & Country magazine, is packed with original sculptures by Pat Roberts, Monty’s wife. Groups of 40+ can access the home and whimsical saloon via private functions. Open daily, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

To check out the cream of the crop, a variety of breeding and training ranches are open to the public, including High Meadow Ranch, which specializes in German Trakehners and stallions. Day Dream Arabians will arrange a presentation of show horses, training techniques and tour of the breeding facility to interested visitors; reservations required.

The region’s rich equestrian roots come full circle at the legendary Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club. Known for its high caliber international competition – and celebrity competitors like actor Tommy Lee Jones – this world-class venue, founded by yeast tycoon Max Fleischmann, is the setting to savor the Santa Barbara lifestyle – for a mere $ 10! Built just a stone’s throw from the Pacific Ocean in Carpinteria so Fleischmann could host post-parties on his yacht, the lush fields offer prime views, championship play and an added bonus: half-time champagne divot stomps. Prince William and Kate Middleton have even made an appearance for a match. For the true enthusiast, polo lessons are offered year-round in individual and group formats. Polo season runs April through October.

Museum buffs can tap into two stops that profile the horse’s other half: the Santa Barbara Carriage and Western Arts Museum and the Santa Ynez Valley Historical Society Parks Janeway Carriage House. Curated by John Crockett, the great-great nephew of Davey Crockett (for a sighting of the television facsimile pop over to Fess Parker’s Wine Country Inn in Los Olivos), the Parks Janeway Carriage House features 35 carriages in its 7,000 sq. ft. facility. Most notable is the Abbott & Downing Concord Coach — the best of its era (1860 –1901). Also on display are four stage coaches circa 1900, and the West Room showcases early Californian tack, spurs, chaps and branding irons and includes a selection of silver mounted saddles and 16 sets of Draft horse harnesses. Local expert Crockett is generally on hand to walk you through time. Open Wed. – Sun., 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. Located just blocks from the beach in downtown Santa Barbara, the Carriage and Western Arts Museum houses an extensive collection of 50+ 19th century wagons and horse-drawn carriages, tack displays and a silver saddle collection, second only in size to the Smithsonian.

SADDLE UP

Along with the stagecoach came the stops, and two in particular are well worth a whet-your-whistle visit. Set atop San Marcos Pass is Cold Spring Tavern, a turn-of-the-century outpost that today houses a restaurant, saloon, store and sundry structures including the dilapidated Ojai Jail. Built in 1886, the stop served meals, refreshed horses and connected dusty guests to San Luis Obispo. Today, this made-for-the-movies locals-spot serves up live blues and country music paired with wild boar, elk, pheasant, ostrich and antelope. Scope out Biker Sunday, which kicks off with two live bands in a lush outdoor setting and features the Tavern’s renowned Tri-Tip sandwiches. Plenty of characters on tap here.

Another roadside stop with strong equestrian ties is Mattei’s Tavern in Los Olivos. Built in 1886 by Felix Mattei as a stagecoach stop, the enormous white clapboard structure offered dining and eight modest rooms for tired travelers. The building has undergone numerous incarnations, but the recent 2013 reopening of the Mattei’s Tavern restaurant has proved a huge success with its two menus: a traditional menu entitled “1886” and a modern menu entitled “2013”. While in Los Olivos, why not pair your horseback ride with a wine tasting? Vino Vaqueros does just that, offering private 90 minutes rides with optional tastings through the Fess Parker ranch and vineyard.

For visitors hankerin’ for a little romp, the Solvang Trolley and Carriage Co. offers horse-drawn trolley tours of the Danish town. The Solvang Trolley was introduced in 1964, when it was used to pick up shoppers from the Solvang Lutheran Home and to deliver groceries around the Santa Ynez Valley. Horse-drawn carriages and the trolley are available to reserve for special events or private tours. Jedlicka’s Saddlery is a fun stop for all things western, whether you are looking for something as simple as a new pair of boots to something more cowboy-specific, like a new horse bridle. Locations in Santa Barbara and Los Olivos make it a convenient stop. While in Los Olivos, the galleries also specialize in western art; check out John Cody’s sculpture or the Judith Hale Gallery. The Wilding Art Museum, which has revolving equestrian art on display, is also a great stop.

For a slice of the ranchetta lifestyle, pop into the small town of Santa Ynez, just off of Highway 246. Set in the heart of horse country, it is a wonderful tribute to the region’s equestrian roots. The Historic Horseshoe Walkway on Sagunto and Edison streets showcases 375 horseshoes inlaid in the pavement. At the western corner of Edison is a kiosk naming the horses, owners and winning titles.

Continue down Sagunto Street to the Maverick Saloon. Built in 1963, this original watering hole for local wranglers and Chumash Indians (yes, there were brawls) came complete with a western façade, horse tie-ups and swinging saloon doors (since gone). The stop for blowing off steam after a week on the range, cowboys would ride their horses into the bar for shots of tequila or a little poker. Today, the saloon hosts top country western bands and two-step, line-dancing, and salsa lessons on the weekends. On summer Saturdays, stay tuned for live acoustic guitar on the deck and a traditional tri-tip barbecue.

WILD WEST BOOTCAMP

A Wild West option is the Circle Bar B Guest Ranch with its off-beat live theater, traditional tri-tip barbecue, horseback riding and true-to-form backcountry appeal. The adventure begins just off Highway 101 as guests wind down nearly four miles of dirt road under lush oak, bay leaf and sycamore trees. City slickers stay clear: this ranch is true to its roots with television- and telephone-free accommodations. For the ultimate outback experience, check into one of eight freestanding wooden cabins with fireplaces and private decks. Six guestrooms offer country/western décor with boot lamps, et. al. And if you’re seeking plenty of range to roam, the ranch sits on 450 privately-owned acres with an adjoining national forest.

The ranch offers a unique – often kitschy – live dinner theater on the weekends, starting with an alfresco barbecue buffet with all the fixin’s. Guests mosey over to the Old Barn for the evening’s gig; Snoopy, The Women, and Neil Simon’s The Dinner Party, are notable performances. Riders will find Circle Bar B’s facility top notch. Saddle up for a variety of rides that pack in mountains, waterfalls, wooded areas and views of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands. Sunset and sunrise rides, lunch rides, as well as personal instruction are available.

Cowgirl Boot Camp is an excellent time for aspiring cowgirls to take the reins and learn the ropes from female wranglers. Everything from equestrian care to roping, riding, hat shaping, line dancing and putting a traditional barbecue on the table is included in the three-day camp, which rides into town annually in May.

Another horseback riding locale is McMullen Stables, located on 100 acres in the foothills of Santa Barbara. Operating for over 20 years, the stables offer horseback riding lessons and horse training, as well as boarding.

Caterers in Canada Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld


New York, NY (PRWEB) August 13, 2014

The Caterers industry has benefited from rising consumer spending and surging corporate profit over the past five years. Corporate profit is expected to grow over the five years to 2014, meaning businesses across Canada have increased their spending on events requiring catering, such as office parties, corporate conferences, team-building seminars and client events. Additionally, according to IBISWorld industry analyst Andy Brennan, “rising per capita household income and improving consumer confidence have led to greater spending on private events like weddings and birthdays.” As a result, industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualized rate during the five years to 2014. Industry growth was highest in the period immediately following the recession as consumers loosened their purse strings after two years of constrained spending. In 2014, the industry is anticipated to grow.

Caterers in this industry specialize in providing individual event-based foodservices and generally have equipment and vehicles to transport meals and snacks to events or prepare food off site. Operators cater to a variety of one-off events, such as wedding receptions, business luncheons and trade shows. During the past five years, “operators have adapted their offerings to suit changing consumer preferences,” says Brennan. Healthier, organic foods and local produce now dominate the menus of many upmarket caterers, which has led to higher average industry profit margins. Operators are also providing a wider range of services, such as lighting and decor consulting and event planning, to satisfy increasing client requirements.

The Caterers industry will continue growing over the next five years due to a gradual improvement in both consumer spending and corporate profit. Industry revenue is forecast to rise at an average annual rate during the five years to 2019. Industry operators will need to meet increasing client demands, such as floral arrangement and entertainment services, by developing relationships with providers or by bringing these additional services in-house. In addition, caterers are expected to experience growing demand for healthier and organically grown food items. While demand for higher-quality products may push up the cost of purchases in the short term, it will allow operators to expand their profit margins over the long term.

Tadashi Shoji ‘s Summer Dress Collection Is Laced With Drama


New York City, New York (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Designer Tadashi Shoji explores a variety of textures and styles in his Spring/Summer 2014 collection that will keep any summer wardrobe trendy and exciting. When asked by FashionMingle.net about new techniques used by the designer in his Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week collection, he showed how he used five different lace and embroidery peices to create one exquistely designed dress. Shoji created the original lace and embroidery designs and combined them with a mix of patterns and palettes for a truly unique collection.

In a recent article, FashionMingle.net Editor, Gerilyn Hayes reviews the collection with a fresh look for summer inspiration and notes that an exceptional dress in black floral lace with a soft, yellow slip stood out in the sea of the traditional pastel color pallets and would effortlessly transition into your fall wardrobe.

Shoji’s collection of dresses were not without the most essential summer material: mesh. The upper bodice of drop waist and floor length gowns showcased sheer mesh material that added a delicate freshness to each look. With both tasteful and feminine exposures of skin the collection was both fun and flirty with a delicate grace.

Tadashi Shoji is a red-carpet favorite, recently dressing celebrities such as Mindy Kaling at the People’s Choice Awards, and Drew Barrymore during the Berlin release of her latest movie “Blended”.

Shoji, who celebrated his 30th year as a designer in 2013, has also never shied away from dressing a voluptuous figure. While many designers refuse to provide dresses for actresses who are considered plus-size, Tadashi Shoji has embraced designing for actresses such as Octavia Spencer and Christina Hendricks, saying, “I am a pattern maker – I can make any woman look good.”

From demure drop-waist lace dresses, to daringly mixed prints and patterns, the Tadashi Shoji Spring / Summer 2014 collection will serve as instant inspiration for classic summer events from wedding receptions to evening socials.
