A Vision for the Event: Softer Black & White

Wouldn't a casual, a little bit ruffly black-and-white winter affair be divine? Soft frilly linens, fresh tea roses, a big antipasto spread (there are olives in the bouquet!) and a sweet Italian almond cake--I just love the look of mixing modern and vintage. What would you do for favors? I still haven't quite figured that part out...hmmmm!

I absolutely love this! Especially the cake paired with the Bella Figura letterpress and the bouquet. It's absolutely gorgeous.

Gorgeous! This is such a gentle and subtle take on what can be a somewhat harsh palette---and I love how you so perfectly found a dress to reflect the ruffled layers on the cake!

Oh, and YAY for voting! Proud to say I not only voted already today, I also helped register a friend who is a first time voter. We are so blessed to be able to participate in our country's political process.

Thanks, ladies! Bridget, your palette is gorgeous, girl--I hope you don't change it! And yahoo for democracy, Anne, am I right? :)

The chalkboard caligraphy behind the cake is such a great idea. I might make that the guest book for my wedding :)
