Pies Lots O’ Pies

Pies Lots O’ Pies

A) I hate cake.
B) Since ice-cream in August isn’t an option I’m rather impartial to the whole dessert thing.
C) I need a dessert option that gives a variety and isn’t your run of the mill brownie, cookie assortment.

That’s where the pies come into play!

I have this vision of cute little individual pies served in Mason jars. A variety of flavors with labels such as “Grammy Fosters Blueberry Pie” and “Aunt Carol’s Famous Pecan Pie”….so tonight we bake…we freeze them…and then we wait…..

Project Don’t Burn The Woods Down

Project Don’t Burn The Woods Down

Goal: Visually guide guests through the woods from point A to ceremony location without burning the forrest down.

Project String Lanterns started this afternoon. A quick trip to Wally-World for the following supplies and it was on!

3 extra huge rolls of cotton yarn
6 bottles of Elmer’s
1 bottle of vassaline (in retrospect I could of used PAM& it would have been way easier then lubing every balloon)
1 bottle cornstarch
2 bags of balloons

Lessons Learned:
1. This is not a one person job.
2. Bridesmaids might be a better option when your enlisting someone to play in glue and cornstarch all day as unlike your fiancé they may be more excited/willing/not think your crazy. However, I have to give it to Ian as he was a straight trooper with this task as it’s a rather messy one!
3. If u wrap the string all the way to the top you end up with a bunch of egg looking lanterns, oops!

All in all I think the string lanterns came out better than expected and will look great acting as a canopy for guests to walk under on their way to the ceremony….

Succulently Obsessed

Succulently Obsessed

I’m coming to terms with my succulent obsession. Lately I find myself fully engulfed in the search for the perfect succulents…it’s like Frye boots, or a new red lipstick….instantly love…too many gorgeous options to choose from…and too many ideas on how showcase them. So I continue my search over and over again until I can commit to the perfect assortment. Here are just a few that I am L-O-V-I-N-G!
