ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Don't send the blender, nix the stand mixer and punt the placesettings for something more original than wedding expo excess to celebrate Spring wedding, anniversary and engagement celebrations.

Break away from the bullying of Bridezilla or chose a life companion keepsake to dazzle your darling at the Spring show of the Washington Ceramic Guild. Whites are the classic cue on elegance, integrating with any household interior and creating a gem of a memory in a glowing pearly finish. Artisan creations are as unique as that match made in heaven, ideal as an anniversary gift, engagement congratulations or to commemorate the hoopla of getting hitched. Bypass mundane Macy's and predictable Pottery Barn. The groom likes glorious glazes while the bride beams at stunning bowl forms. Honor hubby with ring holder to hold precious and a candy dish for the pastel almonds. Candleholders will elevate an intimate table for two. Select a lace-pressed plate that captures celebratory style or present a present in a handmade jar or trinket box. is not the only place to find the perfect special occasion counterpart.
