Cookies and Milk Cake

I was thinking about food (which frankly isn't a new thing for me) and when I was, I came across this cake on Pinterest. And really, if you'ven been on Pinterest for at least 20 seconds, it's a terrible thing for your waist line.

Which I thought was ironcal, because when Amy planned my baby shower, it was a Milk and Cookies theme, and Posh Pastry made THIS amazing cake for me. This cake was just as delicious as it looks!

Pinterest Wedding Decor

Are you looking for decor ideas for your wedding and you aren't sure if you want something outside, inside, on the beach, in a church.

I have a friend that is currently obsessed with sheer draping and chandeliers.

This is a seriously, fabulous find! I love the light, the tone on tone, the romance, the rose petals, it just screams, GET MARRIED UNDER ME!

Am I right?

What is your current obsession?

Pinterest Recipes

I am sure you have already been pouring over Pinterest and finding tons of great ideas.

I asked my friends what their current Pinterest obessesions are, and trust me, they had a hard time narrowing it down.

But I thought I'd share some of what they are pinning.

I am sure by now you have heard of Pinterest, right?

And if you've heard it's addictive, and have hesitated on heading in that direction, you are right, it is addictive. Very addictive. And if you feel you just don't get it, and don't know how to use it. Lemme tell you how to use Pinterest.

Step 1: Request and Invitation, either from someone that already has an account (look for us on Pinterest)

Step 2: Check out the beautiful and amazing pictures on Pinterest. You can find all sorts of fun ideas for cooking, baking, organizing and working out. If you like something, and your account is active - you can "pin it" which means you are essentially using it like a big Cork Board except you aren't using thumb tacks.

Step 3: Create various different "boards" to "pin" your ideas to, make one for Shoes, one for Travel Ideas, one for Room Decor, one for Organizing, one for Pet Clothes.

Step 4: Follow your friends, look for them by their name, whether it's by their blog, or name, or email, or by Facebook, and see what they are "Pinning" and you can "repin" their stuff to your boards to keep for safe keeping, or comment on other's "pins" or "like" their pins.

Step 5: Have fun!

Flower Pot Favors

As a bride and groom, you spend months and months planning for your big day and when it finally comes, you can feel like it's over in a moment.

But what if the memory of your wedding could keep growing and growing even after it's all over??
These custom seed pack & matching pot wedding favors we found on Style Me Pretty are such an awesome idea to keep the memory of your special day alive! 

Step 1: Put together the design you want to go on your seed packet. Once that is finished, print it on the seed packet template.

Step 2: Fold the packet up and use double sided tape to seal the edges. Leave the top open to put seeds inside. Once the seeds are inserted seal the top edge so those seeds can’t fall out. 

Step 3: Decorate your pot. 

And you're done (you can find more detailed instructions here)! What do you guys think about this as a wedding favor??

Shoe Decals

Shoes, shoes, shoes, and shoes....these are a few of a girl's favorite things! And why not, shoes are absolutely fabulous, are they not? When I saw these new shoe decals on Etsy, I couldn't believe wedding shoes could get any better, but they do!

These decals are so adorable (and make for a great close-up photo of the shoes!).

How awesome of an idea are these??

Tissue Paper Lanterns

Being a wedding planner in Florida, I am big on tents at outdoor weddings (seeing as our Florida weather is always so uncooperative). I always love finding ways to add a pop of color or glamorous decorations to make sure the wedding is festive both inside and out.

These paper lanterns from Martha Stewart are so simple and would add such pop to any reception hall or reception tent!

Not only are they so perfect to add to your wedding day decor, they are SO simple to make and you can make them in any color to fit your event! AND it would be a great project to do with friends, over your favorite cocktails and chocolate!

You'll need: 1) Tape
                    2) Paper Lanterns
                    3) Paper Circles (can be found at HyGloss Products)

Step 1: Starting at the bottom of the lantern, use small squares of tape to begin attaching tissue-paper disks around the hole, overlapping them.

Step 2: Working toward the top, continue sticking and overlapping disks to cover the lantern.

And you're done! How great is this project?!?

Mailbox Card Holder

So yes, there are a lot of perks about your wedding day. Marrying the one you love, spending time with your closest friends and family, and let's not lie, the gifts aren't such a bad touch either. A designated card and gift table is a must, and in the midst of all the craziness it would be a shame for anything to get lost!

This mailbox we found on Martha Stewart Weddings is a gorgeous and fun idea for guests to put their cards in and make sure nothing gets misplaced!

So cute! And I mean, who doesn't love getting mail?!?

Fingerprint Love Necklace

Marriage....the joining of two people who have made a lasting impression on each other's hearts. Just like each real love, fingerprints are unique for each person. This necklace from Etsy is such an adorable gift for a bride who said "I do" to a man who left a truly unique impression on her heart.

Does this leave an impression on you too??

Words of Wisdom Table Settings

Going through life, it seems like everyone has their own advice to give on everything: dating, dieting, sports, etc....

But now that you're getting married and starting the next chapter in your life, wouldn't it be nice to finally get some advice you may be able to use?

These table settings we saw on Style Me Pretty are a great way to provide guests with an ice breaker at the tables (you know they'll all be sharing the stories from where they're great advice came from) and gives you the opportunity to gain some useful words of wisdom.

You can give each book a different topic and get all the advice you could ever need!

The best part? If you don't like it, you get to tear the page out!

His & Her Table Numbers

Love is is ageless....and love is eternal. Youth, however, is not. Remember that heinous dress your mom put you in when you were 5 and had no control over your wardrobe? Or that ridiculous haircut you had when you were twelve? And did that ever become a fad?

Well now that you're getting married and you've found the one that loves you, regardless of the fact that you used to wear bellbottoms, I think you should consider giving everyone else a laugh at your past. These table numbers we found at Project Wedding are such a fun idea to amuse your guests at your wedding!

How much fun are these?? Such a great way to bring back memories!
