Last week, our instagram following jumped from 18K to 21K in less than 24 hours. At some point around 18.1K, I told all of our followers that once we hit 20K, we would dump a TON of glitter on a trampoline and jump around in it. At that time, I had no idea that we would surpass 20K and move onto 21K in a matter of hours. (Thank goodness for the Amazon Prime expedited shipping! I honestly have no idea how we would have gotten 5 pounds of glitter in 2 days!)
So, a few days ago, my good friend Carly Mearman and I drove up to Roswell with a great outdoor speaker system and #SparkleExecuted what is possibly the girliest thing to ever happen to trampolines.
I'm not going to lie - the combination of glitter and Atlanta summertime humidity isn't the most comfortable combination in the world, but we pulled it off with sparkling colors. (pun intended? yaaasss girl.)
It took 5 lbs. of glitter, the best GF in the world, and a generous-hearted friend who didn't mind loaning us her trampoline to make good on our 20K Glitter Trampoline promise. (Side note: How much does it matter that no one over the age of 13 has ever done this before? I'm going to take your silence to mean that it's totally fine.)
No, but seriously-- I can't thank our followers enough for staying so loyal through the years. Your support means the world to us and we couldn't continue to grow and thrive as a small business without you. My adolescent business owner hearts wants to break into a million tiny pieces when I think of how far we've come. And how many stitches it has taken to get here. By the way, total disclosure: It's two days later and I still can't get the glitter out of my hair. I've showered fours times and used every type of shampoo/body wash that I own. But you know what? I wouldn't trade it for the world. It was worth every second and thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us hit 20K!
(Special thanks to the best girlfriend in the world, Carly Mearman, for getting your sparkle on with me. I'm sorry about your shower.)
Another special thank you to Holly Trizzino of Intimately Inspiring Photography for letting us borrow the trampoline. I am still floored that you let us do this.
Lastly, all the music that you hear in this video is from a DJ named Kygo. It does not belong to us in any way shape or form.

Ok, so I know that there is such a thing as National Puppy Day. And I know that there is such a thing as National Doughnut Day. There is even "National Hike With a Geek Day." (No joke. I'm totally serious. Google it. It exists.)But does anyone know if there is a National Brides Who Sparkle Day?? If there isn't, then there should be. I will be the first to sign the petition. Because you know why? It would basically be a day dedicated to the women who wear our garters!! Seriously, La Gartier brides are the BEST. They are some of the kindest, brightest, most creative, well-mannered and talented women out there, including our recent bride Heather Black. Heather was kind enough to send us a link to her wedding gallery last Wednesday, and you should have seen my face when I first saw these beautiful photos. (I almost dropped my phone while I was standing in line at Starbucks! No joke!) What I love about these photos is that they show you how utterly classy wedding garters can be when worn with just the right thing, by a woman who exudes class and elegance. Sound like you? Then we want you to be apart of our super sparkly La Gartier family!! You can click here to shop our collection. Happy La Gartier everyone! And Heather-- if you are reading this, then thank you for being YOU.La Gartier bride Heather Black slipping on her sparkling Joy garter and matching rhinestone toss garter.

If peach is the tropical cousin of pink, then blush pink is the uber-feminine little sister, constantly redesigning her bedroom and always speaking in a soft voice. Seriously, it makes sense to me that blush pink is an extremely popular wedding color. It embodies romanticism so effortlessly, so easily....that's its almost suspicious. Here at La Gartier, we offer quite a few different pink options within our collection, but none of them are as gorgeous as our Blush Pink Sweetheart garter. (see photos below for a visual). This garter is absolutely stunning not only for the fact that the base color is blush pink (a statement in itself), but also because it has a french lace overlay and a tiny tiny rhinestone at the center of the bow. (for the bride who wants a touch of sparkle but not too much!) The best part? We are able to custom make this beauty to fit your leg perfectly as long as you do not mind leaving us your leg measurement in the "comments" section of your check out! Below are multiple photos of our infamous Blush Pink Sweetheart garter as well as a leg measurement guide for all of you that want a perfect fit for your garter!Thank you for staying so loyal through the years and please let us know if you have any questions at all by using the contact form here. Happy La Gartier everyone!Front view- blush pink silk underlay with a exquisite french lace overlay. At center: one single light light ivory satin bow with sparkling rhinestone detail in the middle.Side view- the eyelash detailing at the bottom of the lace is one of my favorite precious details on this garter.The Blush Pink Sweetheart garter inside of our signature La Gartier box. Currently, we have a much prettier box than the one in the above photo. (this was our old box. It got us through for years but we upgraded in 2016 to a box that will blow your mind. Everything about it screams luxury. To see a photo of it, please click here and click through the photos.)
