There is so much more to being engaged now than when I was going through that moment of my life. Now there are fun ways to ask friends and family to be in the bridal party (ahem, like cookie boxes!) and the wonderful news is celebrated with engagement parties. Definitely showing my age by becoming aware of such norms just within the past year or two…
A wonderful repeat customer’s daughter just became engaged and I was so happy to create the “will you be my bridesmaid” boxes and the cookies for the engagement party. Thanks Jennifer!!!
Joan and Steve have floated into wedded bliss. Joan has sailed all of her life, even traveling abroad to compete for her university team! So it made complete sense that they choose a nautical theme for their ocean side wedding. May their marriage be ‘anchored’ by humor and commitment and their love be as wide as the sea.
The image from their invite that was my inspiration…
“As I recall, I think, we both kinda liked it.” What’s not to like about the wedding of Emilie and Dave. Beautiful bride, handsome groom, happy family and friends. That dance floor was definitely a hopping place (maybe we were all hopped up on cookie sugar?) ! A Tiffany blue theme popped up throughout the wedding, including in their wedding favors. Here are the designs that Em and Dave picked:
This may or may not have been one of my favorite sets ever to create. Wisecracking was dripping off of my icing bag. I would go so far as to say it was total SASSafras. Maybe or maybe not a little close to home????
These sweet cookies were for the children attending their wedding. Alex (of Alex and Ashley fame) is an incredible, uber talented graphic designer who whipped up a beautiful floral, rustic theme for their wedding info site. I referenced those florals and golden touch he added when creating their cookies. Did I mention how Amazing and Awesome “A & A” is to cookify?
I am continually amazed by what I learn doing research for cookie sets. This job keeps me young and in the know. Rick and Morty is an adult animated sci-fi action sitcom that was based on a parody of Back to the Future. It follows a cynical mad scientist and his grandson on their weird and wacky adventures. Apparently, we forgot to tell kids that this late night cartoon was not supposed to be for children. Here was my take for 9 year old’s birthday party.
