Here we are! At the BEACH, spring breakin’ it up!
I hope you aren’t stuck somewhere cold and snowy, but if you are, snuggle up with some hot chocolate and dream of warmer days that are JUST around the corner! Better yet, let me send some spring vibes your way in the form of the sweetest and prettiest I can find around the interwebs. So let’s get started with a review of the cakes we brought you this week!
On Monday, I showed you what is certainly destined to be one of my favoritest cakes of all time, a wedding cake inspired by Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnet 43. How Do I Love Thee? indeed. Covered with frosting. That’s how
Tuesday, we gave in to our darker side – our chocolate vibe, that is, and featured this incredible chocolate cake, decorated with – what else? – MORE chocolate.S.
Art Deco and Gay Paris were the vibe of the day on Wednesday, when we featured an incredible art deco-inspired square cake, complete with an Eiffel Tower topper. Swoon.
We went demure, sassy, and oh so romantic on Thursday, with this darling hot pink and bright yellow chevron polka dot cake, trimmed with a flounce of peonies.
Friday saw me wax a wee bit nostalgic when I brought you an adorable stephanotis nosegay caketopper.
And now, let’s discuss a little Sweet and Pretty:
You think your wedding dress train was long? Record setting, perhaps? Not even close. The Andree Salon in Bucharest, Romania, now holds that record, thank you very much. (And there was SPITE toward the previous record holder involved! Delicious!)
We’re hearing that the average cost of weddings rose in 2011 for the first time since 2008, signaling that couples are willing to splurge a little, regardless of the economic picture.
No bridal ensemble is complete without a garter…and what’s better than a gorgeous garter? WINNING a gorgeous garter! But hurry! This giveaway on HWTM.com is only happening through Tuesday, 27 March!
I absolutely LOVE the idea of a surprise New Year’s Eve wedding, like this one on Style Me Pretty. What are your thoughts? Could you pull it off?
