Monday’s Finding: Perfect Pumpkin Details

Hello Fall! It’s a gorgeous Fall day here in Denver with a high of 73. Such a nice break from the near hell temperatures that we had over the Summer.

Today’s finding is all about that cornerstone of Fall wedding decor, the pumpkin. There are so many great ways to incorporate pumpkins in to every Fall design style be it rustic or glam. Carve your monogram in to a pumpkin for a great escort table arrangement or cover pumpkins in lace for a vintage feel. Today I have lots of possibilities for incorporating pumpkins in to your Fall fete.

My personal fave? The amazing green cut out patterned pumpkins. Not only is the color out of the ordinary, but such amazing cut work that gives the pumpkins a lacy feeling.

Etsy Virtual Bridal Show: Day 11, Let them eat cake…again! (2 of 3)

Welcome to part two of day 11 of the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show. The Etsy Virtual Bridal Show Team has even more cake related goodness for you: traditional figurines, mini cake-sized bunting, zombie peg dolls, and dazzling cake stands!

I began the Etsy Virtual Bridal Show last year to support individual artisans and vendors and to provide couples with alternatives to the mass produced wedding finds out there is traditional stores. The bridal world is evolving and growing away from the expected and moving toward individual craftsmanship and DIY touches. What’s great about Etsy is that you too can have a handmade look to your wedding without sacrificing your fingerprints to your hot glue gun.

In addition to helping individually owned shops, I wanted to bring awareness to my chosen charity: Wish Upon A Wedding. “Wish Upon a Wedding is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization that provides weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness or other serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. Often, couples facing such situations do not have the energy, time, money, or resources needed to plan their wedding. Our organization takes care of all the details, offering couples a chance to relax and enjoy a very special day while surrounded by the love of their closest family and friends.” -www.wishuponawedding.org

Please note that donations are not required to view or for vendors participate in the show. This is my labor of love to bring awareness to Wish Upon A Wedding and my belief in supporting small businesses and individual artisans. If you feel led to help Wish Upon A Wedding accomplish their mission, please see Wish Upon A Wedding’s donation page.

Cake on a stick?!

What is the latest craze in events and weddings? Cake Pops! As with cupcakes and more traditional tiered cakes, the design element is only limited by your imagination. Whether for a birthday party or a wedding, these things are yummy! I tried these little creations at the WeTV event at Park Meadows mall here in CO via Bite Sized Bouquets of Englewood, CO. I’m totally hooked on these moist bites of cake and frosting blended together and dipped in chocolate or wrapped with fondant. There are a couple of books out there for you DIY folks: Cake Pops: Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for More Than 40 Irresistible Mini Treats , Pop Bakery: 25 Cakes on Sticks and Other Tempting Delights.

Here are some of my favorites:
