Bridal Show

Planning an outdoor wedding come and see us this Saturday!

PLAINFIELD — The Hendricks County Flyer will once again host its annual Brides To Be Expo from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 20 at Primo Banquet and Conference Center in Plainfield.This is the fourth year for the bridal show that features free admission and more than 30 vendors from Hendricks County and surrounding communities.Bill Jarchow, regional advertising director for the Flyer Group, has been helping to plan this show. He said the idea is to help area brides-to-be plan their dream weddings while encouraging patronage of local businesses.“This is great event because it gives the Hendricks County business community an opportunity to participate in a local event that you typically only find in Indianapolis or on the northside,” Jarchow said. “Brides will come from all over central Indiana and realize that our local base of business has a lot to offer as they prepare for one of the most important days in their lives.“We have a wide range of businesses coming this year. We have everything from caterers and restaurants to photographers and real estate agents.”In addition to the vendor booths, there will be a strolling fashion show featuring fashions by Bliss Boutique and tuxedos from Laughlins Menswear.There will also be door prizes and the first 100 brides will receive free wedding planning guidebooks, courtesy of and the Hendricks County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Each vendor attending the show will be giving away a door prize worth at least $25

Super Bowl

Super Easy Ideas for Super Bowl

It’s time for the super bowl and we know you’ll need some great decorations and football party invitations for your gathering this year. Even if you aren’t a football fan, you’ll still be watching for the commercials! All you need is a little team spirit and your super bowl party will be a hit. We’ve put together some great decorating ideas to get your party ready for the championship.

Football Pinata
This is great particularly if you have little ones! You can fill it with small team trinkets or candy. It’s the perfect thing for before, after or during the game. Visit your local craft or candy store to find one.

Themed Plates and Napkins
Super Bowl XLIV Plates and NFL football shaped napkins. You can also purchase team themed tableware to complete your party spread.

Mylar and Helium Filled Balloons
Balloons are perfect for filling up the room and takeaways for the kids when the big game is over. Fill up enough to cover the ceiling and make sure they have long enough strings to reach them! Choose balloons in your favorite team’s colors.

Party Banners
Create a banner to hang for guests to see as they arrive. Decorate it with your favorite team’s colors and logos.

Football Cut-outs
Get the kids involved with this one. Get brown construction paper and create templates of all small, medium and large footballs. Trace and cut out the foot balls from the brown paper. Decorate with team logos and football related words (ex: touchdown, field goal, Super Bowl XLIV etc.) Hang them from the ceiling over the buffet table or scatter on them on the table. You can even hang them on windows and walls.
