a cake party with friends:

Photobucket
So Ruby had an idea a while ago to have a cake party. I think she was inspired by this photo or something 😉 So we met last week and everyone just brought a cake, it was a lot of fun! Of course we snapped some photos to share with everyone.

Sweet Lucy breaking out the wine
(actually, no one opened the wine, hehe)

ahhh, it was such a silly site all of us taking photos! 😉 Yea, okay we’re a little crazy! That’s what bloggers do, right? Sadly, this was pretty much the only group shot we got!

Blogger friends: Myra from double-sidedtape, Linda from parked together, Henny & Lucy from utterly engaged, Lillian from unstitched, Lauren from lauren elise crafted, and of course our host, Ruby from my cakies!

Ruby pretty much told me to grab whatever from her house to use as decorations so I had a blast searching her entire house and finding cute props to use! Needless to say her whole house is decorated with vintage and could be a shop or something, I love her style!

Mini pizzas were a perfect addition to our cake party.

I just grabbed a little slice of each cake and had a sampler cake platter.
It was all quite delicious!

We had plates and glue to make a diy cake stand for take home ‘party’ favors.

Over at the kid’s table, Ruby made pepperoni pizza and
play-dough packs for the kids! So cute.

The only ‘pretty’ thing we didn’t have was a cake cutter/slicer/lifter
thing so we improvised, it was pretty awesome 😉
Soul snuck up behind Ruby while we were taking pics, isn’t she so precious?

Night drew near and we chatted endlessly about blogging and anthropolgie!

Some after-party photos. We turned around and Hannah (Henny’s adorable
daughter) crawled into a bin in Ruby’s backyard, so precious!

We definitely want to have another get together and open it to our local blogger reader’s/friend’s – anyone up for a party? :)

cutouts and lace:

my current obsession is with cutout, flowers, crochet, lace items! everything i buy has a cutout or pointelle design to it, i’ve been buying a lot of clothes (mainly sweaters! i love sweaters) like this! here are some other lovelies i found while browsing momastore.org.


ok, seriously tord boontje, why are you so awesome?

i would totally drop $80 bucks on that amazing garland shade light just so i could stare at how pretty it is all day long. the silver forget me knot ring is too cute. my boyfriend bought this for me last Christmas! and pop-out leaf earrings? pretty darn creative.
