Wedded Bliss: Something Old, Something Sweet


Last Sunday I attended the loveliest garden wedding and while the entire event was so sweetly planned and orchestrated, there was one design element that stood out to me and I wanted to share. Believe it or not, the bride made all these gorgeous cupcakes. I can’t imagine dealing with all the potential stress of a wedding day plus making from-scratch sweets for hundreds of people.

I’m not really too surprised though…my friend, the bride, is a regular super woman. She gives Martha Stewart a run for her money, that’s for sure. Her wedding was a unique expression of her personality and faith.

The sweet part I wanted to share is this little doll-sized cabinet that was used to display her confectionary creations. The note says the cabinet has been in her family for three generations, previously belonging to her grandmother Margaret.


I love this so much! What a sweet way to add something nostalgic in an unexpected spot. Do you have any heirloom items like this that could be used as part of a tablescape? It’s all about seeing things in new ways.

Happy Wednesday friend!


  1. Oh that is lovely!

    I understand though...I did all the cooking and baking for my own wedding. :)

  2. This is beautiful! And how special. Just gorgeous.

  3. We are having a book discussion at our local library next month so I am reading Gone With The Wind again for the 100th (well, close to that) time. Very interesting since I had forgotten some of it.
    Was it on here I saw her beautiful gowns made from cookies? I wish I was that talented with decorating food.
    No I do not live in the south, just in my head.

  4. I love when people put together fabulous un-cookie-cutter weddings on their own. Those cupcakes look amazing.


Lay it on me y'all!
