My First Flowers

My fiance sent me these flowers two years ago this week! They were the first flowers he ever sent me and I was oh so impressed. He sent them to my office and made my day. Two years later he is still making my days...awwww....

Ribbons and Bows

What is your favorite ribbon website? I've seen Bags and Bows and Preppy Ribbon. and Paper Mart, but I want to make sure I'm not missing some site with the perfect pink and green ribbon for my project.

My project is to buy ribbon for my bridesmaids flip flops that I blogged about here:

J&J's Wedding

Here is the wedding cake and the groom's cake from a friend's wedding I went to a few years ago. Thought I would share...

Petit Fours

My friends ALWAYS order petit fours with your wedding colors and new inital on them for all of our showers! Thought I would share this idea with any of you that are planning a wedding shower.

Out of Town Gift Bags

Ok, I've got another question for blogworld...what did you put in your out of town bags? I would love to hear all of your great ideas. My Mom and I are currently working on ours and so far we are going to do bottled water (with a monogrammed sticker and ribbon), a salty mix of sorts with nuts and goldfish (I'll explain later) and some type of sweet (probably a praline or pecan treat.) We are also putting in a coupon for an ice cream treat at my favorite spot in our little town and guides on the area. I'm thinking we are just going to get green or pink bags and some cute tissue paper. We thought about doing sand buckets but I can't find any cheap ones. I would love to get some other low cost options. Can't wait to hear your ideas!

The Perfect Cake Quest Part 2

I'm meeting with our cake lady next week to finalize the look of our cake. Here are some pictures I've collected throughout my cake search. I blogged about it earlier here :
Magnolias, Marriage and Manhattan: The Perfect Cake Quest

I love the beautiful pink color of this one, but I prefer more flowers!

Love the cute designs in pink of this one, but think my theme calls for a more elegant cake. This one would be good for my "other wedding" as my wedding coordinator calls all my fun and funky ideas that don't fit in my "Southern Elegance" theme.

Loving the ribbon on this one, but again. I think it would be better for my "other wedding."

Loving this one...but with some hints of pink maybe? The monogram makes me nervous after seeing some really messed up monograms on people's cakes.

I love the ribbon under this cake. Cute idea!

Really, really liking this cake. In pink maybe?

This is still more what I'm going for. But, I don't want mine to look so top heavy.
I'm thinking this is the right color and the right amount of hydragenas. I wish I could see the rest of the cake!!

This one is just pretty, not really any of the elements I'm going to use. But, it is very simple and elegant.

Too much space with the hydragenas.

I keep picking cakes with dots....

In pinks somehow. The hydragena looks pretty good in this one.

Looks like someone tried to do Martha's cake that I posted earlier and it didn't work.

Too simple for me.

Parent Gifts

Hi guys! I am looking for a creative idea for a gift to give our parents at the wedding. Any suggestions? I would think we would spend around $100.00 or so for each set of parents? I would love to know what y'all gave your parents or if you just have a creative idea. Thanks!!

Roll Tide Roll!

In honor of yesterday's A-Day game. Oh, how I'm going to miss SEC football season!
