Just wanted to prove that I also like less-flowery cakes.

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Apparently there is a theme to the cakes I like. Also, I'd like to point out that I assembled these during a brutally long phone conversation with an outpatient psychiatrist who finally called me back at freaking 6:30pm (boooo).

Fun personalized (re: Austin local and a Michael and Martin standby) touch: catered Amy's cart for reception, especially if it's hot and/or outdoors. Not as expensive as I thought, either...

Oh Vera... I can support grey when it looks as gorgeous as that.
I want the cocktail length version of this dress in emerald or burgundy or something.
I would wear this to my wedding (in dark blue). Monique Lhuillier doesn't mess around.
I realized after I'd saved these that the main reason I like them is probably that the model sorta looks like you.
This skirt reminds me of Leanne from Project Runway with the petals everywhere. And I'd really dig the dress minus the tube sleeves, or maybe even if they were just shorter.
Example of a non-offensive print dress, in my opinion.
Do you have any arty friends who could design concert poster-style invitations, because this is pretty awesome.
The signature sweet tea cocktail would be served in a ginormous punch bowl with floaty citrus slices and fresh herbs, obviously.
I could also see you (and your skin and your gingerness and your eye color) rocking a green and golden palette. And God help me, I'd wear a dress in either color in a heartbeat.
Oh man. Looks like a pain in the ass to set up, but would be really cool entrance lighting to a reception area or whatever.
K, not this headband in particular and not with these colors necessarily, but could be fun to have bridesmaid headbands/hairclips possibly involving matching lace or material from your dress (cohesion! plus sappy but fun possible bridesmaid gifts). I feel very self-serving writing this.
I like the colors in this picture. I feel like medium blues and greens would look good with your hair. And you like pink. Ha.
Signature cocktail? Sweet tea vodka with limoncello... seems about the right mix of south and sophisticated for you and M. Might also have to add some actual brewed tea to decrease the likelihood of massive drunkity drunkenness. Might also be good with some fresh basil or mint. Recipe here.
Dunno how goofy you and Martin are, but this is too cute not to repost. I also am sort of feeling the idea of a print bridesmaid dress (non-traditional, less stuffy and formal), and I like the bride's dress, too.
Um, can we please dress you up and make you take fun, dramatic bridal portraits a la my birthday party (bridesmaids!) two years ago? I bet Alec would do it for free.

Not down with the weird silver crap up top (esp the faux nipples), but there's something charming about the silhouette, a la Gwenyth Paltrow at the Oscars.
Wonder how much it would cost to get silkscreened (or maybe you even just make custom stickers) made with vintage-y fonted favors/table assignments. You could tie an old-fashioned price tag around the tube and hand-write the names on it. Then as a bonus, each guest would have a flower to put in their hair/lapel and a shot glass for celebrating later ;)
Possibly treacherous, but imagine these in the afternoon sun...
Maybe too time intensive, but what cute favors/table assignments (plus chocolate avail for the wedding).
Girly with ballgown skirt, but simple and not obnoxious. I think it's by Alita Graham or something like that.
For rehearsal dinner or engagement party or whatever: make your own cocktail bar with real glassware = super chic.
Substitue "guy" for "girl," add some sexy lingerie, and I see a bday present! Plus snacks for later...
Am loving the pants hanger on a frame... they could also be hung from outdoor branches. Possibly featuring vintage-y graphic art posters of places you and Martin have traveled to with black and white prints of you guys there clothes-pinned to the corner?
I don't know how they made this, but I am obsessed with it. How pretty over a gift table or the table with table assignments?
