- Wedding: July 2010
Our homey hive smells great right now! I’m making pecan tartlets and having to stop typing here to go check the oven every so often. Later tonight making the sweet potato pies! Earlier I made my cream cheese dip and it’s in its’ mold in the fridge..looks so cute when it will come out tomorrow onto the serving plate!
^Here’s the pecan pie filling and le workstation! Note wine in background for tomorrow just in case…
^the tartlets! Some w/pie filling, some without.
^the tarlets go in the oven! I’ll post the “after” pics when the gals come outta the oven! My lil’ tartlets rock!
Last night I got busy setting the dining room table and made two flower arrangements (see? As a former bride who acquired tons of wedding style here I can proudly say I have skillz!!) The ‘bee and the amazing inspiration and diy ideas, seriously helped me sharpen the skillz…
^sterling not out yet..gotta get them ready tonight. Candles also aren’t lit. But it’s somewhat close to being ready.
^the second, smaller arrangement.
I always say that having nice containers are great items to splurge on. I used earlier this month, a large cylinder from our wedding to make an arrangement in the formal room on the mantle and for thest two arrangements, I used two silver footed bowls I had already. They were pretty on their own, but adding the flowers takes a bowl usually reserved for mints or nuts and turns them into silvery showstoppers! So if any brides are wondering, go ahead and buy nice containers! I promise you will re-use them over and over!
Tomorrow I’m getting up and making my sweet potatoe bisque soup (yum!) and green bean bundles (with turkey bacon and also yum) and the other appetizer, my spinach/pepperjack dip!
I’ll post pie and tartlet pics later tonight..
So, what are ya’ll cookin? Show the hive your mad bee skillz!!! Bakin skillz, floral skillz, turkey bastin’ skillz, ham skillz (you GOT to have ham skillz)!
