When I traveled into the city for New Year’s, my hostess was gracious enough to allow us a quick stop at M&J Trimming. And oh my, it might have been a quick trip, but it was amazing!! M&J Trimming is a ribbon and trim emporium that’s stocked floor to ceiling with every possible color, width, and material of ribbon a girl could imagine.
Oh, you’d like some blue ribbon? Here’s about 1/5 of their blue velvet ribbon stock:
On the left, a wall of pom poms and fringe, and on the right, some beautiful pink cotton ribbon.
Ladies, a tip: if you’re looking for the perfect glitzy sash to set off your wedding dress, consider making one instead. Just buy a beautiful rhinestone embellishment from a store like M&J and glue or sew it onto a wide satin or grosgrain ribbon. Custom, and so much less expensive than most of the ready-made options available!
Want to see the treasures I brought home? Here’s a little peek:
The thinner velvet ribbons are being set aside for a particular wedding project. The thicker velvet ribbons haven’t been designated yet, but they’ll be used for things like hanging wreaths and wrapping bridesmaid bouquets. And see that beautiful pleated ribbon? I think I’m going to save that for my bouquet :)
