Cake Break

This cake is amazing, I don't know if Eric would go for a wedding cake as awesome as this one. I bet he would. Maybe scrap wedding I don't want to wait that long. Maybe for my big 2-5 birthday that's coming up soon. I'm sort of addicted to cake lately. I'm making a teddy bear cake for my friends baby shower, and I always have a slight cupcake obsession. This cake though is really phenomenal. I wonder how long it took to make it.

Send Off

I'm not sure where this is from but I love it.

photo from here.
images and info about sparklers from here.
I love the idea of a fare well sendoff. It is one of the few wedding traditions I sort of like. I was wonder though what else is out there to through or sparkle at the Bride and Groom as they leave the reception. I really love the first image with the bubbles. It looks so magical. I think If Eric and I do do a send off I would love a picture of our backs walking out like this. I also think the flower petals are interesting. They seem pretty popular but beautiful. The sparklers could also really make a statement at a night wedding. This is only my beginning for ideas on how to say good bye but it's a start.

I love photography. It can create a great story and evoke such strong emotions. For the past few days I've been searching through my own photos as well as my fiance's looking for some of our best shots to sell at a craft festival at the end of this month. I am excited and a little nervous. Will what I think looks amazing actually sell?

Something old, something new...

I'm all about changing and mixing up traditions. My Mother is probably exasperated by my antics now. Eric and I aren't very traditional people. We want to shake it up a little. Besides some wedding traditions just seem a little old and dusty. For example..white shoes... for real. My mom thought I had gone mad when I said I wanted at first blue shoes then I switched to bright fuschia ones. I eventually won her over. My shoes are just to fabulous. Well back to my main focus... wedding traditions and the usual something old. something new, something borrowed and something blue. I absolutely love the idea of doing this as drinks. Something old, like a regular martini, something new... maybe some tasty pink concoction with sugar around the edge. Something borrowed-I'm going to get my genius of a drink maker brother to help me here as well as with the something blue. He has amazing drink making skills.
As well as tasting delicious, I think it's a great way to incorporate a tradition but put a spin on it. Ok I'm also a sucker for brightly colored drinks, and they sound perfect for a summer wedding.

Megan's Wedding

I was lucky enough this past August to attend a friends gorgeous beach wedding in Pensacola, Florida. Megan and Scott had a beautiful beach ceremony that was filled with lots of love and emotion. It was very sweet and you could really tell how happy and in love this couple is. They rented a huge beach house for to hold the reception immediately following the ceremony. Drinking and Dancing on the expansive back deck over looking the ocean, wonderful and colorful tables were where dinner was served underneath the stilted house. It was a very intimate gathering of all of their friends and family. I was happy to have been apart of such a beautiful evening. It was one of the best weddings I've attended. Had Eric and I wanted a beach wedding, Megan and Scott had the right idea rent a house and throw a great party to celebrate their happiness.

The photographers at this wedding really did capture the magical moments of the night well. Beach Bum Photography did a marvelous job. All the images above were taken by them.

Candy Candy Candy

I also really like the labels on all the jars. I'm not sure weather it's a "logo" for the Bride and Groom or tells the type of candy. Either way it's super cute.
I really love this yellow candy bar. It just screams summer and fun.
I am not sure where I found most of these photographs. If anyone knows and wants credit just let me know.
I love candy. The idea of a candy bar really interests me. A table full of beautiful and different shaped jars filled with assorted candies. That is a small piece of heaven for me. I also love the idea that the candy could be in our wedding colors. It seems like such a colorful and festive way to add color to our wedding day. I'm not sure if it's in the cards for Eric and I to have a candy bar. We still have so many decisions to make. I do really love the idea though. It may also be my sweet tooth though.

Gift giving

Eric's new toy
So I love giving gifts. I absolutly love to search out what I think would be a fantastic gift for someone buy it and hold it to the best possible moment to give whatever I deem the "perfect" gift for that person. Well this weekend I found the best deal ever. My Fiance loves watches. It's his male jewelry he says. I can wear earrings, rings, necklaces.... he gets two pieces. A wedding band that is in drawer waiting for our fateful day and watches. So this weekend in my wonderful search for something interesting to wear on our wedding day or for any thing really. I stumbled upon a amazing find.. big watch. This is something that Eric has been secretly pining for. I asked the lady at the jewelry counter to see it. To my utter astonishement it was much less then I expected, it was exactly the giagantor watch that Eric wanted. I had to buy it or forever regret that I let such a deal slip through my grubby paws. As soon as I left the store I could hardly keep my excitment down. I had to give my gift. Alas I can never hold on to a gift for long. I met up with Eric and gave him his watch. Which he was so excited it made my day.
