I Heart Martha!

Look at these adorable ring pillows made of vintage hankies! How lovely! I need to make these now! :) I bet she learned how to make these in prison!
Seriously, though, I really do heart Martha.

To Do This week....

Up this week:

Finalize caterer

Check out Hotels in midtown area (If you have a favorite hotel or have points at a hotel chain in NYC let me know and we can add to our list for consideration-- we're shooting for 2-3 hotels to block off rooms for that weekend.)

Save the Date - printing vendor research

Also, In case you were interested, here are some of the other venues we checked out before we came upon the Metropolitan Building.....All were very nice but not as unique as the Met Building.

Castle on Hudson
Blue Hill at Stone Barns
The Garrison

Lily of the Valley
, Peonies and really any white flower are at the top of my list right now, but there are so many options!

I do know I want to incorporate a lot of green leaves and foliage if possible, which coincidentally is a symbol of "wedded love." how sweet.

are in-season during October and are the the "traditional autumn flower." But I think they're a tad to colorful.

According to the Wedding Gazette these types of flowers are easy to get all year long as well, so I will consider, (although not sure what some of these are) :

Baby's Breath, Bachelor's Buttons, Carnations, Gardenias, Gladiolus', Lily of the Valley, Orchids, Roses and Stephanotis.

And last but not least, call me crazy, but I like these paper flowers and think they would add a nice touch to certain areas in the Met Building....

Paper Poppy Pomanders
