The Iowa Homemaker: Volume 41, Issue 2
Not just any dress will do. Your wedding dress is a very important part of the wedding - and a significant part of the expense!
Everything's "coming up roses" this month for the girl who's about to be a bride. Cupcakes are in bloom with pink frosting flowers; paper posies are budding on party trees; and in the punch bowl, a splash of rose water lends its delicate fragrance and flavor. Who's behind the rosey glow?- you, of course, with your green party thumb, coordinating the prettiest shower of the season for a friend who is going to be married.
Couples who meet on Iowa State's campus often choose to have their weddings in the same area. Gardens, chapels, and even the Union fountain are backdrops for the ceremonies.
It's Spring in Paris, and the 1961 Trade Fair is well under way. Emphasis in the American exhibit is on convenience foods found on our markets. Ready-to-cook turkeys and other poultry products, dried fruit, packaged cake mixes, minute rice, instant non-fat dry milk, frozen foods, and frozen juices will be featured. Demonstrations will point out how quickly and efficiently these foods can be prepared.
