Garden Series: Afternoon Tea Party

You can indulge in your Beatrix Potter moments without having to worry about nauseating gingham and yellow eyelet. An afternoon wedding by the lake or in a park is made into an even more festive party with the reception theme of High Tea. Have your guests choose between different blends and have a great selection of petits fours and apero tartlets available so that they can easily eat while they wander around the grounds of the venue. Shabby chic has never been this fun. Lace parasols and teacup candles make for great favors and a carefully made Princess Torte from Danish bakers would give a kick in the ass to your average sponge layers.

Nouveau (Gothica): The Twilight Board

Ok. I won't even get started on what it means to be a fan of the Twilight series because there are hundreds of thousands of fansites dedicated to the brooding vampires. I read the book sometime in 2005 (it had a different cover, depicting a lanky girl with a bob lurking in a darkened hallway), and found it really hard to put down despite the seemingly teenybopper idea of a vampire-angsty teen romance.

So when I found out that Stephenie Meyer, the author, was in the process of meeting with studio executives for a MOVIE I must admit I was excited, just because i had tried to imagine the two protagonists in my mind but could never summon up the perfect people fo casting. I was so worried they wouldn't live up to the standards set by my imagination. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised. Anyway, to conclude the Twilight fever, I created a board based on the book cover themes... and what I thought their wedding should have really looked like, although I do think I can base a board on the one written into Breaking Dawn. Be dazzled.
