The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ A Quick & Dirty Etiquette Refresher for All of You Brides to Be!

I feel a rant coming on... And maybe it's because I'm on vacation next week and I feel my patience wearing thin or maybe it's because I'm feeling completely burnt out from the craziness of wedding season, but this bridey really pissed me off. Know why? Well, she was a guest at this particular wedding (I knew she'd be there), and not only did she ask me several questions about her own wedding, comparing décor details and whatnot and even a few logistical questions, but she serial texted me décor ideas that she liked for her own wedding or would things she would change, as I was in the midst of running the event. Yeah... Are you fucking kidding me?

So, my clients obviously knew each other, which is great, but when I'm running the event that I have put my blood, sweat and maybe even a few tears into, get outta my face. Seriously. Bridey, your day will come, and right now, I'm fucking busy making sure this event is flawless and as much as I like you, you don't matter to me right now. You hardly exist. Plus, your wedding isn't for months, and therefore I'm not focused on it as I'm running around checking every last detail for wedding I am orchestrating, TODAY!!!

Fantasy Friday ~ Eat, Drink, and be Scary!

I love that I chose today to start eating healthier, increase my workout regime, blah blah blah... only to realize that today I am posting a disgustingly delicious, incredibly awesome, DIY submission from Mia Dee Photography. This kickass collaboration between The Frosted Petticoat and Chinet seriously has me wanting to gnaw my arm off (in honor of Halloween) to avoid chewing through the screen. Because as "gross" as this post is, all I want to do is to devour those cupcakes and candy!! I guess that's what happens when fucking fantastic vendors unite. Right? They make you want to things that you didn't think possible. And for me? I suddenly feel very DIY (which is SO not like BB)!!

Sooooo... As I mentioned, this was a collaborative shoot between The Frosted Petticoat chocolate company and Chinet. See what I mean, brideys? THIS is what happens when great minds come together... Amazing things start to happen. "The goal was to create an elegant (yet spooky) adult themed Halloween party, using both The Frosted Petticoat chocolates and Chinet’s party supplies. This could also serve as fantastic decor inspiration for a Halloween wedding! Styled by the head sugar designer, Sam, at The Frosted Petticoat, the results were spectacular! The party features three distinct displays: A candy table, a pastry/dessert bookcase, and a drink bar. Most treats are presented on Chinet plates or using Chinet’s plastic cups. Here are the special features of each display…"

Dessert Bookcase
"The dessert bookcase is the centerpiece of the party. Sitting court atop the sweets is a coconut cake with a lavender flavored white chocolate skull topper by The Frosted Petticoat. Also on the top shelf sits a yummy selection of spicey pumpkin cupcakes with khalua cream cheese frosting, along with The Frosted Petticoat’s famous amaretto flavored white chocolate sugar skull lollipops. The second shelf boasts a gaggle of treats: The Frosted Petticoat’s coffee flavored white chocolate sugar skulls, black & white cookies adorned with The Frosted Petticoat’s mayan chili flavored dark chocolate skeleton cameos, and dark chocolate cannolis. The bottom shelf finishes off the sweet array with raspberry & mint petit-fours, chocolate cream cookies, and The Frosted Petticoat’s Irish Cream flavored white chocolate skeleton bones."
RIGHT??? Those cupcakes look A MAZ ING!!!
