Food & drinks with a dash of whimsy!

Eco Pleasures

I often receive messages from newly engaged brides-to-be whom are overwhelmed by one daunting question:  Where do I start?!  With all the bridal magazines, pretty blogs, and (let’s face it) motherly opinions, the start of your wedding planning can be a very confusing time.   One bride-to-be in particular wrote in frustration that her “eco-friendly” outdoor wedding was off to a horrid start.  None of the favor or wedding shops carried green products and she worried that her search was in vain.

Well fear not, tulle warrior! Your quest can easily begin in the place where dreams are made, in a land of whimsical fairies and talking butterflies, in a world of limitless imagination… yes my friends, I speak of the magical land of ETSY!  Here lives a world only rivaled by the ceaseless fantasies of children.  And to prove my boundless love for the site, I present an inspiration board for our Frosted bride in search of an eco-friendly outdoor wedding…
