Could you just imagine these peeking out from beneath my hem at the reception?

what's that commercial?

You know the one that says they deliver "freaky fast?" Jimmy Johns? You know the one? I am thinking the post office must be up to something.

I dropped off the invites at 4:00 p.m. on Friday. By Saturday early afternoon, many in Missouri and Illinois already received their today, New York and Philly received theirs. How is that possible?!? Freaky fast indeed!

I am looking forward to getting the mail tomorrow...will we have any RSVP's? :)

that's it?

I was expecting to feel something fabulous while mailing out invitations to the most significant event in my life to date. I expected the postal worker to share my joy. Seriously, I did. I know that dropping off invitations on a Friday at 4:00pm isn't likely to bring a smile to a stranger, let alone a postal worker... But after the week that I had, I wanted more than "do you want to keep your bags?" seriously. I guess I will have to wait for my invitation to arrive to get excited.

My completed bar cabinet project! It is not too large, so my glasses take up so much space....oh well! I love it! :)

DIY wedding card box

Today we tackled the DIY project of our card box. I had purchased 3 patterned hat boxes from Hobby Lobby many, many months ago with this project in mind. I love the look of a faux wedding cake when all the boxes are stacked!

So a few hours later, our card box is finished! We could not be happier with the end result.

Here is what we did...

We took off the lids and turned the boxes upside down. Chris measured and cut a hole in the bottom of the box that was the same measurement of the box to be placed on top of it.

Here is a shot of all three boxes stacked. Since they all fit so snug, there was no need for ANY adhesive. To seal the opening at the bottom, we placed the lid to that box back on.

Here all three boxes are stacked and ready for decoration!

Around the base of each box, I applied ATG tape.

After the ATG tape, black ribbon was applied.

To add a little something extra, I created bows from a thicker black ribbon and used a little hot glue to hold them in place. That is it! I am not sure if it needs something

I placed faux anemone flowers on the bows. These are not permanent until I see what you think....should the flowers stay? Should I add some bling? What do you think?

cake bling

I have been searching for the perfect combination of stylish cake bling and affordability. I have searched ebay, numerous websites and finally etsy.

Several weeks ago or maybe even longer I convo'd an etsy seller MetalCreations.

After we chatted back and forth, I sent a pdf of my beloved "B"

The result....
I am beyond excited about it! I cannot wait to see it on top of our cake...
