{guest post} cake and cider celebration from luna & chloe weddings

Hello oh so fabulous readers of P&P!  Kristi here from Luna and Chloe Weddings and Over The Moon Vintage Rentals.  I was doing the 'kangaroo hop' when Chris asked me to guest post for her while she is off on vacay.  As if you don't already know, I heart Chris and P&P big time!  I of course, asked her if she could pack me too...goodness, I even offered to pay the over the weight limit fee ~ hehe.  But no, it just wouldn't work...so here I am working away ;-) Anyhoo ~ since I had to stay here and work, I figured I might as well have a little celebration while I was it.  You see, my sister and my birthday's are one day apart, and I thought why not throw a little celebration for us both.  
So without further ado here's a little Happy Birthday (to me and you) Party... Postcards-and-Pretties-1 I have to tell you my dears ~ that my all time favorite cake is Burnt Almond Cake!  Oh my goodness it is a little piece of heaven, and was the inspiration for this birthday party... Postcards-and-Pretties-2 I have to tell you that I planned this shoot on the hottest day of the year...eeks!  So these pictures were actually taken at 8 am while it was still bearable outside.  And since it was so early in the morning, I used sparkling apple cider instead of champagne (hence the color).  However, since I ate the piece of cake that early in the morning (you bet your buttons I did), I wish I had poured champagne!  Champagne and cake at 8 am ~ hey it's allowed on your birthday, no? I hope you enjoyed this little birthday celebration shoot I put together just for P&P readers!  I know that this shoot is for a birthday, but all of these details can easily be used at a wedding, bridal shower, engagement party - you get the idea. Cheers to a fabulous week.  ~ k

  6. I'm in love, seriously. This has inspired me to create a little dessert table for a little get together with my girls. I love the idea of using an embroidery hoop for a cake topper - so stinking brilliant. These are so cheap and can be incorporated into any fun party or wedding in so many ways...love.
