Rainbows & Hawaii

"When moisture and sunshine combine in just the right combination, the magical phenomenon of a rainbow occurs. Hawaii is known as the Rainbow State because of the frequency with which brilliant rainbows appear, arching over her valleys, cliffs and beaches like welcoming beacons." *quoted from

What better playful theme for a Hawaii celebration then Rainbows. I found these fun desserts (oh excuse me - is my sweet tooth showing) while surfing the web and "Viola" a concept has begun to develop. Of course - the Brother Iz version of "Somewhere over the Rainbow" would work. The trick to a successful execution of this would be to use either neutrals or a monochromatic color in all other areas(linens, attire, flowers, stationary, etc.)

Cake Stands - a memento from your wedding day

The wedding cake is the first important cake of your married life and being able to keep the cake stand that enhanced & supported your wedding cake is such a romantic concept that I just had to blog about it.

Designs can be funky, modern, vintage and are produced in endless mediums - Clear Glass, Colored Glass, Tin, - surf the web and prepare to be a bit overwhelmed at the sheer volume of options.
Think about it! A beautiful stand for the wedding cake and a cherished functional keepsake.
