The cake

The Martha Stewart calla cake has always been my favorite and what I envisioned my wedding cake to be. Unfortunately, its a logistical nightmare! Those clear columns separating the layers were custom and cost upwards of $60, which to me, just isn’t worth the cost for an otherwise free cake [Abigail Kirsch has their own baker deal with the cakes]. Sooo, it looks like we’ll be taking inspiration from the master, April Reed, and go with something subtle yet beautiful. We’ll probably end up doing white layers with green ribbon and yellow flowers, but who knows, that could all change in a week.

Vintage mushrooms

These sell fast, but usually you can find the cutest set of vintage mushroom decorations from Small Stump that would be PERFECT for my friend Christina’s wedding…I can see them all over her cake, or decorating little homemade cupcakes….[I was lucky enough to snag a bag for myself when they were still available!]

Brooklyn Flea

Chad, Kiki and I headed over to the Brooklyn Flea this weekend to see what we could find….and find we did! I discovered a lot of new vendors, and some old favorites as well. There were lots of great items like Brooklyn notebooks [I picked a few of these up] from Moontree Letterpress and adorable scripted Brooklyn coasters from Sesame Letterpress, both great as gifts, or these initial totes from Loyalty & Blood. My ABSOLUTE new favorites were the yumminess coming from Brooklyn Cookie…I’ve got to get some of the Brooklyn Bridge cookies into my out of town totes. The Flea is open every Sunday in Fort Greene and will have a rotation of vendors, so its definitely a good weekend visit.
