cake pulls

Cake pulls are a tradition in New Orleans weddings. I don't know if it is a southern thing, or a New Orleans thing - but I look forward to them at our wedding! Check out these from Mignon Faget, a local jeweler in New Orleans. From left they represent marriage, eternal beauty, luck, red hot romance, prosperity, opportunity, stability, and true love.

For a visual - here is a photo from my friend Erin's wedding (congrats!) where the bridesmaids have gathered around the cake to claim their cake pulls.

cute clutch

Wouldn't these make the cutest bridesmaids gifts? They are made by Eclu (see her Etsy store). I saw them on Snippet and Ink this morning. She puts together amazing mood boards like this one below... seriously gorgeous.

Pierre Hardy for Gap

I am obsessed with these boots from Gap, coming out this fall. They are part of a collaboration between Gap and Pierre Hardy. I would love them in this gray color. It has been a while since I really loved something from the Gap...

bridal bag?

I just found this J. Crew bag on sale. Could it be the perfect wedding clutch? I am not sure a bride really needs a bag on the big day, but it sure is cute!

french linen bench

I stumbled across this bench in a catalog sent to the house yesterday called Wisteria. I love the French linen look, so I immediately started picturing it our bedroom under a big window. I have been looking for ways to improve our bedroom, which right now is pretty bare. However, the price is a bit steep. What do you think of it? Worth the splurge?

amazing flowers

small stump and studio choo is a beautiful blog that posts about flowers and crafts. I LOVE their taste in flowers. I believe that they are local to the bay area.

This is exactly the kind of flower arrangement I would want at our wedding - messy, full of foliage and gorgeous layered flowers. It looks like it was created from a backyard garden.

Wouldn't these make adorable favor bags for a country wedding?
