Rainbow cake love.

rainbow cake
"This cake just made me so happy when I saw it. From the blog, Whatever (made last spring for her children's last day of school). A rainbow cake - perfect for a rainy day (and we have many here). Click here for the recipe."

Say it with food

For a Thanksgiving or picnic themed wedding, I think using a pie as your table numbers would be perfect! Your guests use it to find their seat and then dessert is already served.

design your own

Did you know you can design your OWN rugs, pillows and more over at Jonathan Adler? I didn't.

You should def. take some time to poke around his website. How awesome is this barbie art from the Barbie Malibu Dream House?

decals to boot

I'm kind of really loving these wall decals from Decor Designs Co. Huge, painted-on stencils are quite the rage right now and these decals just might be the easier way to go.

They have some pretty out there decals (monkeys!) that are worth checking out. And they can customize colors, sizes, etc.

my, it's sparkly

Ohhhhhhhhhhh! I am in L-O-V-E with this 1920s cluster ring over at Erie Basin.

My day is brighter just looking at it. Imagine how I'd feel if it was on my finger!

Found the ring here.

Our first anniversary



Sunday was Ben and my first wedding anniversary. What I didn't realize at the time of ordering or eating the wedding cake was that the first layer was reserved for us to eat ... one year later.

The photographer caught the top tier being removed and whisked away to my mother's freezer. This week, my mom returned it to us and we made an event out of eating it. Much less moist, but that cream cheese frosting is ALWAYS good.

Woo hoo one year!

pie in a jar

Why didn't I think of this? These single-serving pies are so stinkin' clever. And cute!

Get the details and step-by-step over at Our Best Bites (more yummy photos too!).

All the single ladies

Beyonce's "Single Ladies" has solidified itself as the official song of the bouquet toss.  It has been popping up in my life a lot in the past couple weeks and I must admit, I'm loving it.

Check out these different, but fabulous, videos inspired by the song.


The new china set

I was wondering yesterday, how many brides still register for china for their wedding? I know I didn't, but I drooled over all the delicious choices. Is it still the norm to receive a china set for your wedding?

And what would your guests think if you registered for these! :

Check out this adorable family tree by Lake Jane. You can order your very own personalized tree here!

I totally want one. But mine would consist mostly of dogs.

Teen Sensations

(from Abercrombie, Sally sweater, Navy, $160)

I must admit, I'm still on Alloy's email list and I take a quick spin through Forever 21 when I'm at that mall. So I was thrilled to see that someone else can admit that sometimes those teen stores have cute stuff, darn it!

Hop over to Elements of Style for a look at what cute pieces you can find at Abercrombie, Hollister, American Eagle and Alloy ... that way you don't have to actually go into the stores. Go now!
