Just Peachy

Planning for 2013 wedding season is in full swing, and one of the most popular colors is just peachy ('s peach). Pair it with a metallic and you're on-trend for the season! Or leave it with neutrals and go for a truly vintage look. Just be careful with your bridesmaid dresses, this color might not be flattering on most girls...but that might be what you're going for. You bridezilla, you.

Pie is one of the most comforting, delicious desserts ever. Why wouldn't you want some good old fashioned southern comfort at your wedding?! Pie can be in place of a wedding cake, along with it, as the groom's cake or as cute little party favors. Just look at this country yumminess!

Mint to be

Vintage? Modern? The lines are blurring. All I know is the color combo of the moment is mint & gold. Add in some shade of pale pink and you've got the perfect palette for a whimsical wedding with a vintagey-modern feel. Just ignore your MIL-to-be when she tells you a million times she can't believe these colors are back in style. Because that will happen.

Painted Cakes

All cakes are works of art. Each tier is a canvas, and the cake artist gets to create a one-of-a-kind creation that will only be enjoyed for a few delicious hours. But there's a way to make cakes into even more of a literal canvas and into a hand-painted, 3D, edible masterpiece. Once a cake is covered with fondant, it can be painted with food coloring and water, just as you would use watercolors. Here is a little gallery of cake art to feast your eyes on:

Peyton's second birthday party

Peyton recently turned 2 and we had her party at our favorite park!  We weren't prepared for the 50mph winds that day!  It was so windy, we couldn't put up half the decorations we made/bought!
We had to tie up the balloons instead of having them as the centerpiece at each table.  The kids didn't mind!

These cookie party favors were supposed to be stuck in the buckets of sand.  That didn't work since the sand was pelting all of us.

These oreo pops were supposed to be stuck in cute styrofoam that we decorated.  They kept blowing over.

My mom spend a long time working on decorations, down to the water bottles!

Playground time!
The inside of the cake was rainbow!
It's almost impossible to get a bunch of party kids to look at the camera at the same time!

Thank you to all of our friends who came and endured the wind for Peyton's party!
