Hey Guys! I’m writing to you from Baltimore, Maryland, where we are hanging out in anticipation of going later to a – you guessed it – family wedding. Good times, since I’m getting to experience both an epic heat wave and some of the worst storms in history. A line of wind and thunderstorms ripped through here last night after wailing on my home state of West Virginia, and we swore we saw Dorothy’s house floating through the air. So here’s hoping that all of you out there are safe, sound, and will have power back in the very near future. Stay cool, y’all.
Well, since I’m traveling with my darling family – Great American Road Trip, Y’all – I am currently luxuriating in the peace and solitude of a very comfortable hotel room while Hubs is entertaining the kiddoes. (Yay HIM!) So, in this quiet time, Wimbledon on the telly, coffee in hand (sadly, no strawberries and cream), let’s look around together and find out what’s going on in the world of wedding, yes? But let’s start with what we’ve been up to this week.
On Monday, I featured a beautiful little cake that we spied recently at a Key West destination wedding – a Teal Blue Wedding Cake with Sea Shells.
Tuesday’s cake was a this breathtaking creation by British artist Janet Mohapi-Banks: a White Feathers Wedding Cake.
I couldn’t resist this homage to the Beatles on Wednesday, with this Yellow Submarine Wedding Cake.
Cakes disguised as pastel boxes, wrapped up in ribbon, made this Satin Bows Wedding Cake a hit on Thursday.
For Cake Topper Friday, we just LOVED this Baseball Bride and Groom Cake Topper. America’s Game!
We went all fancy For the Guys on Saturday, with this Faux Bois Groom’s Cake. Go ahead. Click on it. Learn something new today.
And now, let’s go poke around with our feet up and see what other Sweet and Pretty we can find!
