Lollipop, Lollipop

As I drug my under rested, over worked self into Starbucks this weekend I noticed these cutie little cake pops sitting in the window:

One Fine Cookie
 And I had a thought.

How cute would these be at weddings?  In lou of a traditional cake and the now ever-so-popular cupcake, these would be a big hit (in a not so big bite!)  And if you really want it to look like cupcakes….

There are so many ways to display these little gems!  To create a grand effect, try making a base out of styrofoam in the shape of a wedding cake.  Insert the cake pops into the base to create the visual of a textured “bubbly” cake

Want to be a little different than other brides?  Create a light-hearted atmosphere and set the tone for a whimsical affair by giving your bridesmaids candy bouquets!
Without Adornment
 Create wow moments for your guests with every detail…. and, of course,  with every bite ;)

Recent Obsession

I’ve grown a recent obsession for something I once thought I hated.  It goes to show that we prove ourselves wrong every day.  Want to know what this tiny little thing is that changed my mind in so many ways?

Baby’s breath.

Yep.  Cheap, dainty, used in so many horrible ways, baby’s breath. 

There is NOTHING prettier than a big bundle of baby’s breath to make a chic impression.  I still hate the idea of using it intertwined with a bouquet of red roses, but left alone, it is beautiful!

It makes a great spring/summer wedding idea:

 Or even a beautiful winter wedding masterpiece:

 For every bride who likes a classic touch, you may want to rethink this little plant.  Besides – if you’re a bride on a budget, you can’t get ANY CHEAPER than baby’s breath!
