Spotlight on The Ribbon Jar

Sometimes we at EJP find out about fabulous products through serendipitous ways.  We found out about Salem, Oregon-based The Ribbon Jar last year when owner Amber Lee asked us to coordinate her wedding.  And how glad we were to work with her.  Amber’s whimsical style and fantastic vision for her wedding were a joy to execute.  And now we know to share her wonderful online store with you!  If you are picky about your ribbon, want high quality, and a variety of colors and styles to choose from, please take a look!

Thank you again, Amber, for including us in your fun and fabulous day!Ambercake
