pic me a palette : the donut.

Ever since Alison and Marc’s wedding this past Saturday, I can’t get donuts off the brain. My favorite part of the entire night? When the DJ proclaimed “ok folks, the bride and groom are now going to cut the donut!” Um – yes, complete & pure awesomeness if you ask me.

I am over the moon anytime I see couples doing something non-traditional on their wedding day, and substituting a traditional wedding cake for your favorite sweet is the perfect way to do so!

These lemon poppyseed donuts look absolutely scrumptious and the beautiful blue/grey tone of the poppyseeds makes me swoon.  I definitely might have to try whipping these together one of these days. I also love how Jessica of The Novice Chef doesn’t claim to be anything that she’s not – she’s just simply a gal following her passion for sugar and cooking! You gotta love that!

pic me a palette : the last crumb.

I’m not even kidding when I say that Canelle et Vanille might just be the prettiest food blog I’ve ever laid eyes on. The styling alone is enough to make me giddy, but the food…oh the food!

This mulberry and rhubarb crumb cake literally makes my mouth water. Recipe here.

frenchie macs.

As I gear up for my trip to Europe in early May I feel the butterflies in my tummy escaulating at the mere thought of getting back to Paris. It’s my favorite place in the entire world & 12 days of Parisian goodness is long overdue. I’m so excited to get back!

In looking at my pinterest page this week, I couldn’t help but notice my accumulation of french macarons reaching an all time high. I’m so drawn to the pretty colors and delicacy of this sweet pastry. Do you have a favorite pastry?! Where is your favorite place in the world to visit/be/relish?

inspired by : sam dubeau.

I’ve always had a little obsession for flag cake toppers. Make the flags super tiny with an “adorable factor” and I’m sold. So it’s no wonder I fell so in love with these crafty cuties by Sam Dubeau. Sam’s design page is full of crafting inspiration including these stamped exclaim cards & these celebrate cards (oh yes! streamers & confetti bananza!). Simple supplies, with uber creative results.

pic me a palette : the love cake.

I’m all about the love on the blog today! For whatever reason I’m totally pumped about this year’s Valentine’s Day! I guess I look at it not only as a time to celebrate the love of an SO (significant other) but all the love in your life – friends, long lost acquaintances, pets, family, passion for fashion…etc. etc.!

I about fell out of my chair this morning when I spotted this ombre xoxo love cake over on Ruffled. You’ll have to definitely check out the rest of the fab shoot by Couture Events by Lottie here for more lovely inspiration! Yay for LOVE!

friday find : oh baby!

A couple months ago I had the pleasure of supplying some vintage finds to my dear friend Laura Marchbanks baby shower. Her sister-in-law Leah reached out to me with the desire to create a vintage inspired dessert display and I was dying for the opportunity for my white dresser to make a splash at an intimate affair.

I was so excited to see how the dessert table turned out and was even MORE excited to provide my china collection to the shower. Laura is such a dear heart and I know she is going to be one amazing mama!

Laura is due in a matter of moments, and I wish her the very very best in her & Billy’s delivery experience! Yay for baby Brady!
