Weekend project: the ring pillow


I’ll just come out and say it….I hate the Superbowl. Football and me just don’t get along…but it does give me an excuse to get some wedding stuff out of the way. Being an interior designer gives me access to a lot of gorgeous fabrics….I’m actually using a bunch of them for the wedding in my centerpieces….and I happened to have a remnant of one of my favorites to use for my ring pillow. So, while Chad watched the game…I broke out the sewing machine and got crackin. Ring pillows have got to be the easiest sewing project ever, and this one literally took me about 20 minutes from start to finish. If you’re interested in me posting some directions, let me know….but I think the process is pretty self-explanatory. Its a nice way to tie in your colors and personality.

Herve Leger Fall 2008


I was lucky enough to get to see Herve Leger‘s first New York runway show ever this past Sunday and it really was a sight to see! At the end was a fabulous dress that could definitely pose as a wedding dress for some stick thin reader…or someone with some major Spanx underneath! I don’t know how I missed out on seeing all the celebs that were there!!

snippet + ink


I asked Kathryn over at snippet + ink to come up with a board for my wedding, just to see based on my colors and blog, what she could come up for me, and I couldn’t be happier! She brought some elements that I hadn’t even considered…so I’m very excited to see how I can tie some of it in!

Thanks Kathryn!

Brideshead Revisited





A few weekends ago I headed uptown to visit Brideshead Revisited over at The Wedding Library [they were also at the Wedding Party]. I’m happy to announce that I’m pretty sure I found my veil, but I won’t tell which one since Chad doesn’t want to know [and reads Brooklyn Bride RELIGIOUSLY!], but for you brides who are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, I would definitely check them out. All the veils are custom made, and you can customize most aspects of them to your liking. They’ve also got beautiful flowers, brooches, and headbands too.
