The City of Brotherly Love’s (Philadelphia’s) perhaps best-known landmark is LOVE itself — the Robert Indiana sculpture is in John F. Kennedy Plaza, not far from City Hall. As an odd side bar, LOVE was installed in 1976 but briefly snatched away in 1978; popular demand brought it back to where it stands today.
Since the wedding was in Philly (even though ordered and picked up in Buffalo), all was right in the karma world.
Can you imagine being married 61 years? Quite the accomplishment so I wanted the cookies at their party to be sweet and elegant yet celebratory! I used ivory and a dusty rose (dark pink with a splash of ivory) and some gold highlights to that end.
The customer gave me this photo of Nonna and Grandpa. I wanted a lace like frame so I pulled out a sugar sheet and a trusty Martha Stewart edge punch and voila!
Nonna is said to make the best meatballs in town and Grandpa the same in wine.
Here’s a toast to many more years!
