Sandy and Adam are great adventurers so it makes complete sense that their wedding would be in a lush, exotic tropical setting. For their bridal shower, I thought of dreamy, soft watercolors accented by their silver rings. The silver was from TMP and the watercolor was various mixings of Americolor‘s moss, leaf and forest green, and ivory with water.
For a happy engagement party, add cookies to bring the bling. Okay, I get it; the RING is the bling. Still, I can’t help but put my own sweet spin on bRINGing the bling. Shine on, you crazy couple!
Such a romantic. He took her on a trip to Paris and, in the most lovely of settings complete with music, he asked her to marry him. Je t’adorABLE!!! At the celebration back home, cookies were served. Paris puns predicted??? Oui indeed. Here is a sampling from the set (yep, I neglected to get photos of the whole bunch before they went out the door. Oops.):
You get a purple, and you get a purple, and you get a purple. I guess these purple cookies had to stand in for Oprah at this bridal shower. Hey, it’s The Color Purple, one way or another.
She calls him her “puzzle piece” because he is the missing piece to her life puzzle. These two are such an amazing an sweet couple. Congrats in cookie form.
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!!!

That ring got bling!
Just the right size….
Caroline and Donnell had a fairy tale romance so their wedding favors had to step it up to shine like this beautiful couple!! Caroline chose two different designs; both had parchment colored background and a white floral to mimic their invitations. She couldn’t decide between “Mr & Mrs” or “hello LOVE” so why not have both!
Mr & Mrs:
Hello Love (based on stencil by Killer Zebras!):
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.
