Getting back in the pool

It's been awhile since I've updated, but we've only got five months until the wedding and I figure this would be a good time to start updating on a regular basis again. I will post things that I am working on, ideas, time lines, thoughts, inspiration etc. Just to let those who are helping me with the wedding know where I am with decisions.

I've been looking at second hand stores such as goodwill for odd dishes and things to decorate with and I found this little paula figurine from the 70's. These seem to be the prerequisite for goodwill's and yard sales across America. I loved this one though, especially the quote and will be putting this somewhere at our wedding.

I have spread my dreams beneath your feet;

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. - W.B. Yeats

the bee's knees

Todays inspiration is brought to you by the honey bee:

The pedigree of honey Does not concern the bee, Nor lineage of ecstasy Delay the butterfly On spangled journeys to the peak Of some perceiveless thing — The right of way to Tripoli A more essential thing. -Emily Dickinson

Beehive cake

table decor

I spotted these pretty birds nests in Mosey's shop on etsy the other day. These would be really pretty on a dessert or cake table. You could also put them near your guest book!

Do me a favor

I really like the idea of food favors. It seems like a really good idea for a few reasons:

1.) Not wasteful. I think little wedding favors are usually cute in the moment, but later people might just throw them away because really, what do you do with them? Especially monogrammed items.

2.) Leftovers. I don't like the idea of being stuck with 25-50 favors. If its food, usually people would want to take more than one. Or just eat them yourself :)

3.) Inexpensive. How expensive could two cookies per guest, really be? Depending on who/where you have them made, it could be a lot cheaper than say the $2.50 + per guest most favors are.

4.) Expressive. The cookie, mini cake, pie, candy etc. could be a favorite of yours and the groom.

I also like the idea of plant favors, but I'll get to that on another post :)
