Cake Inspiration

When you're in the midst of wedding planning, the smallest wedding details can suddenly feel like The-Biggest-Deal-in-the-Whole-Entire-World.

It doesn't help when you visit blog, after blog of pretty details. Don't get me wrong: I love pretty details. I recently spent several hours making a fabric banner to hang in our house during the month of December, for crying out loud.

I just think we have to be careful not to let the pretty details overshadow the more significant and lasting aspects of the process, like proactively strengthening our relationships for the years of commitment that lay ahead, learning to navigate and negotiate two (or more) families, combining finances, etc.

When I saw this lovely picture of a very simple cake over at Snippet & Ink, I thought to myself, "What an amazing marriage between pretty and simplicity!"

So this here post is a little toast to the marriage between pretty and simplicity.

i feel like bribery can work wonders. i had dinners and wine nights with my girlfriends when they

came over to craft. also, sometimes your friends might feel like if they help with a project it

may not come out as good as you would like, so they are nervous about crafting. do your best to

make them feel at ease. if you have something that you WANT to be perfect, do it yourself.

otherwise, let them help you and do your best not to re-do their work.
