Thank you, Wanessa, the printables are stunning, and I love your use of patterns!!
If you read my blog, you know I love anything personal and quirky when it comes to parties... especially weddings.
So when I saw this wedding invitation, or should I say, 20-page wedding "comic book" on Offbeat Bride, I had to write about it.
The story, written by the bride and groom, is touching. The illustrations, drawn by the groom, are gorgeous.
Here's the beginning...
To see the rest, go to the groom, Giles Timms' blog. It's a lovely tale.
I'm loving Save on Crafts. It speaks to the DIYer in me begging to come out.
I browse through the site and think about all the crazy things I could do here:
I could make a cool sweets table with the apothecary jars.
I could string twinkle lights all over my backyard to set a really awesome mood.
I could make a great cupcake tree.
I could hang up some homemade pom poms.
I could even throw some ecofriendly confetti at a wedding... or just because.
So much to do, so little time.
I fell in love with Morgan + KTs Picnic Engagement Party the first moment I saw the pictures.
What speaks to me about it is that it's homemade, low key, beautiful, fun, and all about love. What could be better?
What was your inspiration for the party?
I can't remember my exact inspiration for the party but I know it was just coming out of winter and I wanted to get outdoors and into the sunshine! Also a lot of our friends were also having night time engagement parties and we wanted to do something a little different.
We wanted to create a laid back picnic feel, where people could dine on the grass, enjoying the sunshine and where we could spend a lazy Saturday afternoon with our friends and family. Unfortunately the weather didn't co-operate for us and we ended up having to bring in shelters and no-one really 'picnicked' on the grass (instead on chairs) but we had fun just the same. I created a mind map for the event and starting listing all the ideas that came to mind when I thought of a picnic party - and it kinda grew from there.
Here is what i wrote on my blog: “simple a little country (to compliment our wedding which is being held in the country) picnic style a red & orange colour theme and a M+K= <3 theme (which many of our guests cleverly used too!)”
I love "Top Chef Masters," so how psyched was I to watch last week's episode and see that it was "Wedding Wars."
I wish I could have tasted the food. How many times have I been to a wedding where the food was just adequate, or not even that great. What would it be like to be at a wedding and eat food prepared by awesome chefs?
The desserts made by Govind Armstrong where quite impressive, but I have to say I was happy when Jody Adams won the challenge. She seems modest and hard working, no showboating, which I like.
But I've got a couple questions... How do they pick the couple to feature on the show? Are they foodies, because based on the episode they didn't seem like it. And what's it like to have a reality show filming at your wedding?
Even though I think of myself as a slight foodie, I'm not sure I'd welcome the cameras, even for the free food. Any thoughts?
Today was the first day I saw an episode of "Amazing Wedding Cakes" and now I'm hooked. It's on the WeTV cable network and there are some seriously cool cakes on this show.
So here are the three cakes that were featured in today's episode. My favorite is the Barcelona cake, styled after Gaudi's most famous building in Barcelona and created by Cake Alchemy in New York.
But the other two, like this turntable cake by the CakeGirls in Chicago, aren't too shabby. (When I looked at the CakeGirls website I saw that they recently had a fire that destroyed their studio. My heart goes out to them. You can read more about it here.)
And check out the incredible flowers on this traditional cake by Merci Beaucoup in LA.
I stumbled upon this new online magazine, Nonpareil, dedicated to DIY projects for weddings and parties. I thought it was beautiful so I had to write about it.
So far they only have two issues up, but what I love are the free downloadables and tutorials, plus the photo spreads are gorgeous.
If you love beautiful things that make you go "aaaaaah," this is the online magazine for you.
She also added this fun Family Guy-themed birthday party to our site.
Check them both out. And a big thank you to Dulce!
Also, my next post will be about a few of my favorite party favors on Etsy. I'll be including some beautiful treats from Dulce, but in the meantime, check out her FunFavors Etsy store as a sneak peak.
